[Op-Ed] Bush Hatred, Obama Hatred

A reader writes:

After September 11th, Bush’s approval ratings were near or above 90%. Practically the entire country was behind him – saluting and ready for duty. Yes, the Left did try to derail his plans for Iraq – but they failed. And when millions (actual millions) of Americans came out to protest that war – – it was largely ignored by the media. But when 70,000 lunatics came to DC last week to protest “Government Spending” (which, let’s be honest, is a euphemism for “Barack Hussein Obama”) – they got massive amounts of media coverage and hours of pundit commentary.

Every tea-party rally has been aggressively championed, and all-but-sponsored, by cable-news giant FOX. CODE PINK was almost completely ignored (which, as a liberal, I’m kinda glad about — but I still stand behind my larger point). A couple went to a Bush rally wearing anti-Bush T-Shirts and got arrested. Guys standing outside Obama rallies openly carry guns and get interviewed by the media.

The heaviest hitters in the Republican party, and in the conservative media have loudly and proudly called for Obama’s failure. Liberals who even softly criticized Bush were roundly shamed and called terrorist-loving-America-haters. George W. Bush, despite the controversial beginning of his presidency, was given the chance – – no, in fact, after 9/11, he was given all the unopposed freedom in the world to succeed or fail based upon his own decisions and his own performance. Bush EARNED his hatred.

Obama has not had that luxury.

He also does not have the luxury of the Clinton inheritance. He was left with a steaming pile of doo-doo and a debt already in the stratosphere. And yet they also blame him for that.

  1. I didn’t know if this first guy’s post was sarcasm or not until I went to his blogspot. I gotta say I like his site. Also props to the reader who wrote that OP-ED.

  2. Why is so much hatred hurled toward President Obama? That’s a no-brainer!

    He’s a Kenyan born Arab terrorist who wants to bring DEATH PANELS to this grand and glorious land of ours so he can pull the plugs on Granny and Gramps.

    HE’S a LEFT WING SOCIALIST whose education was funded by the American Communist Party, MoveOn.Org, Barbara Streisand and Ed Asner.

    He named his daughters Sasha and Malia – WHAT’S UP WITH THAT???

    He would prefer to have dinner with Mahatma Gandhi over Ronald Reagan.

    He wants to start a TROTSKY FOR TOTS program for our children.

    He’s just an evil, mean, wicked, bad and nasty person!

    The Big, Black, Bolshevik Bogeyman is gonna git’cha!

    It has not a thing to do with race.

    But seriously, folks….
