TFA: "So please, America, don't fall for this con all over again. "

That's weird. All the Tea Partiers are saying the exact same thing....but with an extra "o".

Um... Obama has for the most part continued Bush policy as well, random angry op-ed guy.

I mean, I agree that Obama is a better choice than Romney, but this is perhaps the worst argument for that conclusion that I've read in the entire campaign cycle. Obama's foreign policy was actually mostly formulated during the Bush presidency, he's been a strong supporter of PATRIOT (another Bush legacy), he's advocated a set of tax cuts that are literally referred to mostly as the "Bush tax cuts", etc. I mean, he's been much, much better at actually implementing said policies, but for the most part the policy itself hasn't changed.

The fact that imaginary unicorn-riding Wizardbama from the writer's imagination doesn't match imaginary three-horned pitchfork-wielding burning Bush from his fever dreams isn't the same thing as the actual politicians diverging on actual policy, and it'd be nice if Huffpo would assign an editor to screen the op-ed contributors for literal schizophrenia before publishing their opinions as if they were valid.

FriarReb98: Maybe it's just me, but I'm pretty sure Romney is nowhere near as right-leaning as W was.

17 or romney's 24 foreign policy advisers were in the bush/cheney administration. his domestic policy is almost literally "undo everything that obama has done and start over from where bush left it." and to top it all off, he will almost certainly get rid of the white house brewery.

I love articles that get straight to the point right from the headline.
