So once again!

Where was your deceincy when Bush was being bashed by every loony liberat deorat under the sun? Where were you when they were hanging and burning effigies of him in DC and every other majhor city under the Code Pink and Move banner?
Wow. Are you serious? I did not make a 'speech'. I authored a post. And there is no "i" in decency. Honestly, I hadn't the slightest notion what you were referring to, especially since that topic had already been addressed and put to bed. Bush was not being bashed by anyone that I recall until he undertook a path of lying our country into war. Please provide examples of Bush-bashing from 1/20/2001 - 6/20/2001. I'll admit, I wasn't paying much attention then, but I don't recall anything like the tone from the right toward Obama from that time period.

The harsh criticism from (true) conservatives and the left directed at the Bush administration was aimed at policy, and did not begin in earnest until after they chose to lie our country into war.

But what is, that it's not OK to chastise O BA MA for what he says and does because he has only been in office a short time and is learning about things he thought he knew but really didn't so give him a break?

Actually, that is American tradition, yes. GW Bush and just about every other American president was granted what has been traditionally referred to as a "honeymoon" period. The idea is for both sides to come together and support our newly elected president for a period after an election.

The tone toward Obama from the right has been nothing short of savage, and it started before the man even took office. In the end, we are all Americans and we should probably all try a little harder to find some common ground.

You might be right about that, Mp. If you are, the very last thing we do as a nation may well be to weep for the future.

Does that look familiar?

Everything else you say is nothing but your opinion of how "you" feel the way things "should be".

You have yet to reply to me on where were you on the deceincy speech when no deceincy was afforded President Bush by the loony liberal left?

Did you give the same flowery words for him?

Hahahahahahahaha

Maybe you better go back in this thread a bit because those words that you are taking credit for ......"calmly and rationally" are my words that I said "calmly and rationally"!

I gotta tell ya that one of the first signs that someone is doing as well as they want to is that they "drift" away from the subject at hand and look for reasons to criticize the one that they can not get over on ... one is to start becoming a "spellin' b master". Look around.... I spelled it a few different ways

I know that you're not gonna believe this, but sometimes when you want to catch a ....... ummmmmm.... "mouse" ....ya just gotta throw out a piece of "cheeze"!

Anyway I find it very disheartening that some use popularity as measure of who's right and who's wrong.

Sure! President Bush was "bushwacked" by a whole bunch of "liberal zombies" at every trurn, but there is one thing that no one can ever take away from him and that's after 9/11 were never attacked again... like his methods...plans or not. Whatever he did worked and there's a whole lot of dead bad guys who will never get a chace to wear your shower shoes in Arizona because of him.

Maybe you shoulkd send him a thank you card!

Oh! Now I get it...

Everything I said is abosolutly the truth about the "liberal left" being able and willing to dish it out, but none of them can take it!

What a pitty!

If 1 1/100th of what was said about President Bush was true and provable then Congress should have gotten rid of him long before his term was up.

Obama was right in there lying , bull shitting and shoveling shit on the President who we very well probably owe our lives and the lives of our families to..... and some people just are never gonna forget that. And I explained to you that when the kid started out I thought he was ok until he turned into an asshole.

Well .... he's in now.... let us klnow when he does something good!

Yes of course, what with all their payments to the families of Homicide Bombers, and their unending support and sanctuary of Abu Nidal.

Wait that was Iraq.

Hmm...

Homicide bombers in Georgia? No way! We're talking about the state, not the country, right? Links please! Seriously, this would cause a complete reassessment on my part. I'm always anxious to learn from someone more informed.
