But no one questioned Bush's religion or citizenship, Dave. And when the courts ruled that his election over Gore was legit, the left shut up and moved on. Democrats didn't try nearly 50 times to repeal any laws that Bush signed. Try to keep stuff like that in mind while you step away from the false equivalencies.
By introducing the Bush/Chimp analogy — though it most certainly was used often — you are indeed implying equivalency. The left made derogatory references to Bush = the right makes derogatory references to Obama. Here's why it's false:
The left expressed disrespect for Bush, the man. Never for the Office. The right expresses hate for Obama, the man (largely based on race and perceived religious issues), and disrespect for the Office.
Both men have their failings. The discussion and relevancy of those failings is anything but equal.
"If it turns out that President Barack Obama can make a deal with the most intransigent, hard-line, unreasonable, totalitarian mullahs in the world but not with Republicans? Maybe he’s not the problem."
YES I do, and although pretty silly looking I thought they were a "low blow" for even him.
I would have like to seen his face untouched . . . . with bars in front !
BUT no one thought those serious- they were so silly... it is different in BO in that all the slander and lies is spewed in the name of "truth"... as factual.... they use those lies to make him less American, less human, and to alienate people from anything he tries to do. I am glad you recognize the inequality, Dave... many conservatives do NOT. They think it's "fair game". Course they taunted Clinton, Gore, and Kerry the SAME way !! They're vicious SOBs ! IF anyone is less human- THEY are !!
