So Democrats Can Bash Republicans But It Can Not Go The Other Way

Have we forgotten how Democrats treated Bush, really have we? Let us remember Democrat you lost in 2000 and 2004 so using the logic that some hypocrite used a couple of days ago, Democrats had no rights to bash Bush. Let us remember that Democrats hoped that Bush would fail, so why cannot a Republican hope that Obama fails. How is it that Democrats can be ugly in defeat for eight years yet Republicans have to be gracious in defeat? Let us just be honest Democrats live by their own standard. They live in their own little world where they can do anything and nothing is wrong.

Oh you should realize by now that the Democrats and Obama are always right. They are never wrong. They can do what they want, investigate evil Republicans like they did with Nixon, what they want to do with Bush and get them impeached, but if you dare to investigate Clinton or horrors the great leader Obama, it is verbottem. Yes, they have free reign but it does not extend to you.

Exactly.... and these double standards show the liberals for the lying hypocrites that they are. Kinda like this whole torture thing they are going on about... turns out they were briefed about it in 2002 before the enhanced interrogations took place, Pelosi and others were there... and one of the questions went something like... That's ALL were going to do to them?! Now that the truth is out... they are trying to say that they "didn't know" those tactics were really going to be used... just like they claimed they "didn't know" Bush was going to really attack Iraq after Congress.... including the liberals and Pelosi... gave Bush the authority to do that very thing. These lying liberals have no shame and no concept of reality. They are so wound up in their own little meaningless worlds that they blindly believe everything that the liberal propaganda machine tells them. Meanwhile, the liberals in DC are so wound up in their own reality, that they have no concept what the real world and everyday Americans have to go through just to provide for their families. The average American knows a damn sight more about the economy then these crooks in office do, because we have to balance our budgets every payday. If we overspend... there is NO ONE to bail us out. The liberals who voted for these morons are merely useful idiots, who are going to raise all kinds of hell when their costs go up and their standard of living tanks because of the 0bamunist and his band of communists. Then of course, they will blame Bush, rather than their messiah.

What makes it even worse is that Democrats made fun of Bush on a very personal level. They called him names, questioned his intelligence, called him naive and ignorant, compared him to all sorts of ugly and stupid animals, latched on to every mispronounced word and accidental misspoken phrase, and generally tore him down as a person. It was like they could not find enough in his actual policies to criticize, so they had to criticize him as a person. Those who criticize Obama, on the other hand, have criticized him on the basis of his policies. They believe he is bad for this country and they tell you why. Sure, people call him names (Obamunist, Nobama, Apologist in Chief, Community Organizer in Chief, etc), but these are just illustrations of the things that they believe to be lacking in his leadership skills. It became a national pastime to come up with new insults for Bush, and not only is it ridiculous to say that the Republicans should not do what Democrats did for eight years, it is also ridiculous to even compare the two when I personally think Republicans have been more dignified about it (so far) than the Democrats ever were.

What i dont understand is obama has only been in office for 3 1/2 months now. not only that hes trying to bring us out of a hole that bush has dug for 8 years now. where were the republicans when bush was digging this hole sending our troops to irag? $1 billion a week on the war since 2003. $750 billion bailout... yea bush signed off on that. now that Obama is trying to save this country by spendin money lets wait and see how this works. the majority of obama bashers dont even understand obama is saving them a lil change in their paychecks (i see it) they only see 1 thing that they hate the most. and it has nothin to do with his policies if u kno wat i mean. and i have various youtube videos to back up my proof.

You are asking a very good question. I think the answer is that Obama has been put on a pedestal and has been deemed by many to be above reproach. Therefore, any criticism is taken the wrong way and is considered treasonous;)

We all live in this little world you speak of. I'm always right and you're always wrong. Except for the times that you're always right and I'm always wrong. Only I'm never wrong. I'm sure I know more republicans with this attitude than I do democrats. This is largely due to the fact that I know more republicans than democrats.

that is sad to hear. if that is the case then there no different or probably worse than the republicans who ones took over the seat and the Presidency. I feel that it's just a matter of Revenge or simply didn't care about camaraderie in the government. well, it's dog eat dog out there in both senate and congress. one says but thinks another. .
