Protesting his policies is one thing, senseless, mindless attacks are an entirely different kettle of fish.
Yep: We need to keep a rein on things.

Being a clueless, partisan, mouth-breathing dolt is a higher form of patriotism than serving in our country's military?

It is far more than disagreeing with the President the Resistance is a toxic mixture of hatred and resentment that licenses any means no matter how destructive to the Republic in the service of its goal. Corrupting the DOJ and intelligence agencies into partisan political weapons practicing political sabotage like the old KGB, no problem. Defying Federal immigration law at the state level, patriotic. Reflexive condemnation of the President at every turn, even to the point of supporting murderous street gangs, approved. Invoking arcane Senate rules to delay confirmations for literally years, courageous.

The Resistance is anything but a celebration of first amendment rights. It is a movement dedicated to banana republic style mob rule. The chosen candidate lost the election so the winner must be destroyed at all costs.
So: What is YOUR definition of a "REPUBLIC?" Is it a system of "high authority wherein there's no questioning of ANYTHING? - only dominance and submission??

I agree that it has gone a little far sometimes...But maybe some o' Y'ALL had better study the constitution better

I served in the Military twice: during the Korean conflict and the Berlin Crisis in '61 and '62.

When republicans resisted Obama they were falsely labeled as racist and called obstructionist by the likes of CNN.

The Tea Party was formed not as a resistance to anything Obama, but specifically his tax and economic policies. There is quite a bit of difference between the two.

What were the TEA Party members 'resisting'?

Do you even recall what TEA stood for?
