There is a consistent pattern to politics on both sides.

They say one thing and do the opposite.

Bush opposed socialist government and yet presided over the largest increase in government benefits (until ObamaCare, which was in fact a Republican plan) known as Medicare Part D. Obama claimed to want peace and end the wars and has increased the drone program and wars by 1000%.

Why is that? Simple. The strongest opponents to what these people say is in the opposite party. So, if Bush preaches less government, Republicans give him a pass because he is their guy, so can get away with more government/taxes. If Obama says less war, his own party will give him a pass for being their own guy when he murders US citizens openly and increases the wars. And the other parties can't object because it's the things their own party was preaching for.

In other words. Assume the opposite of any candidate because that is the politically expedient approach.

It's all a grand game. The only way to win is to not play.
