Skip to comments.Media Bias - 2x More Soldiers Killed in Afghanistan under Obama than 8 years of Bush - No Outrage
Posted on 04/29/2012 6:53:28 AM PDT by davidbellow
There have been 1954 U.S. soldiers killed so far in the Afghanistan war according to icasualties
1324 of those Deaths have occurred in less than 3 1/2 years under Obama while only 630 of those deaths occurred in 8 years under George W. Bush
WHY NO MEDIA OUTRAGE?
I remember when Bush was President the Liberal Media stations and news outlets had daily updates of the number of U.S. Soldiers killed with pictures and everything. Now It is almost hard to find out how many soldiers are dying every day because when a soldier dies now it is not on the front page or sometimes not even reported at all.
I am not going to get into any discussions of whether or not wars are right or wrong. The point of this blog post is to show that the media is clearly showing their bias and hypocrisy by no longer Bashing Obama over the deaths like they bashed Bush.
THE MEDIA IS PROTECTING OBAMA
The media apparently does not care about the Soldiers or about how many were dying. If they did then they would have continued attacking Obama over the rising U.S. Soldier death toll.
The media only reported those death numbers under Bush because they wanted to try to indoctrinate the general public with negative views of Bush. Now that Obama is in office, they are backing off and trying to protect him from negative attention from the rising U.S. Soldier death toll.
Over twice as many U.S. soldiers have died in Afghanistan under Obama in 3 1/2 years than did under Bush in 8 years! Have you heard any major news station of media outlet say that? When is the last time you even saw a death toll number with made up milestones?
Where are all of the anti-war protesters now? Why no big rallies?
This tells me that these groups and the media never really cared as much about the deaths of the soldiers as they cared about just hating Bush and trying to make him look bad.
Code Pink . . . crickets with Obama.
Because "the media" is full of sh*t?
To the liberals our soldiers are good for nothing more than stage props.
Democrats get more of us killed. Simple as that.
I remember the daily death count updates on many liberal websites. They all disappeared the day President Obama took office.
The American military is nothing more than political capital for leftist freaks and Big Media.
FU Big Media!
Why? Because 0 won’t allow it.
Yet he’s still trying to suck them in to voting for him.
Not that it matters if they vote or not, it’s just makes the vote counters
job go faster...
I am not a Paul pusher but we all should know about this
and what’s happening.
Is the fix in? Is this why 0 said, “after’ he’s elected, not ‘if’ he’s elected?
Obama has lots of money to buy advertisements on those networks. They will see lots of large paydays.
Obama is a Democrat politician and Democrat politicians are schlubs. Our admirals and generals, however, are supposed to be better. They spend their time worrying about their next promotion and how to increase their retirement. Every admiral and general from the past 20 years should be court-martialed. Every admiral and general from the past 20 years should be made to run a gauntlet of family members of Soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. The family members could hit them, urinate on them or defecate on them. Our admirals and generals have failed us all.
Check the history of every administration since the Civil War: More U.S. armed forces are KIA or WIA under the democrats.
