When Hauritz first came into the team, all the talk was about how Australian pitches were terrible for spinners and that his First Class average wasn't representative of how he'd do around the world, and now that he's cleaned up lower orders after the opening bowlers have run through weak batting lineups at home, he's suddenly unsuited to conditions abroad but a good bowler at home. What people are saying is that the pitches at home don't suit him, and that the pitches abroad don't suit him. Doesn't seem like a very good bowler based on that, does he?

Moeen is a perfectly fine bowler FFS
Think most Aussie spinners are unsuited to Indian conditions, because they're not good enough to trouble such accomlished players of spin.
Not sure where you're going with the rest of your comment, have I said he is a particularly good bowler at home ?

Sure they both bowled quite well, but they didn't take the wickets. Copeland has been taking big wickets lately so perhaps he would do well, while vic_orthdox is really fighting for Doherty's spot.
I doubt people hate Siddle - rather they don't think he's as good as Bollinger, whereas the Aussie selectors might think that way.

Besides O'Keefe, arguably.
Let's not kid ourselves though - he did actually bowl quite well last summer.
