Thought not.
To explain it for people who are literally / figuratively challenged...

Those statements were not to be taken literally. Anybody who read that and thought the author was literally saying "liberals no longer viewed President George W. Bush as republican" after inauguration?

The context of the whole article made that clear.

For those who refuse to acknowledge it was figurative and not literal, I offer you another conundrum...
Peter Quill: [about Gamora] She betrayed Ronan, he's coming for her. That's when you...
[draws his finger across his throat in a cutthroat gesture]
Drax the Destroyer: ...Why would I want to put my finger on his throat?
Peter Quill: No, that's the symbol for slicing his throat.
Drax the Destroyer: I would not slice his throat, I would cut his head clean off.

The OP is talking about respect.

He isn't saying you can't disagree with the president.
He isn't saying you can't oppose his policies.

He's talking about respect.
But repubs balk at that. That simple fact is mind-boggling.
With Bush, I'll happily say that those on the left who disrespected him were acting like churlish children.

But once again some try to use "well the other guy is behaving badly so disrespecting the president is okay" tactics.
Two wrongs make it right...
The article is making the completely bogus claim that a lack of respect for the President is some new thing that has arisen with b.o.'s election.

From the OP:
Quote:
Suddenly President Barack Obama, with the potential to become an exceptional president has become the glaring exception to that unwritten, patriotic rule.
It's complete crap and you know it. The disrespect for both Bush Presidents flowed like a river from the left (and more than a little from the right) and the disrespect for President Clinton was huge from the right. Reagan, Carter, Nixon, LBJ... the list goes on, all of them dealt with disrespect.

To even hint that this is some new phenomenon or that it is somehow worse for b.o. is ridicules on the face of it.

Hey, that's the left's #1 debate tactic. Go back to almost any thread 'bout Obama's latest f*ck up and you'll see libs (yourself included) bringing up Bush attempting to show he did something similar.

Don't do an about-face and claim you're suddenly against that tactic. After Mikey, you're the number one user of that lame strategy so don't break out the crocodile tears now. We can't get through one f*cking Obama thread without some lib sayin', "Bush did it too!!!"

Stop with that nonsense. Libs have zero room to bitch 'bout respect after the way they treated Bush for 8 years. Don't stand there and all of a sudden pretend respect is important to you all. Besides, the heat Obama gets pales into comparison to anything Bush received. So not only are you all hypocrites but you're oversensitive crybabies as well.

Pipe down and enjoy your own medicine.

What I dont think you understand is when a "lefty" does that he is probably not trying to justify something by saying Bush did it too. He IS pointing out the hypocrisy of the right.

Fact is that most the threads about Obama weren't about Obama until the right makes them about Obama.

The difference is the right never acknowledged it was wrong when Bush was doing it.
But when Obama does it, NOW SUDDENLY they want to declare it to be heinous.

It isn't two wrongs make a right.
It's a demonstration that you guys don't even hold to that standard in the first damn place.

Things aren't perfect anywhere, even the Great White North.
Here's something respectfully comparing Prime Minister Harper to the notorious one.

Yeah, like the Left attracts people who are lazy and looking for hand-outs
and a Free Ride in life.

I guess I can go dig up the pictures of Bush being burned in effigy
I guess I could go dig up the pictures of Bush being lynched.
You guys can sure dish it out but you just can't take it.

How many times do we have to go through this crap?
That's the mantra that the right loves to repeat for themselves...
But when you look at the facts and rank the states according to which states pay more in taxes than they take in, the blue states rank higher for paying more federal taxes than taking in federal money ...
... and the red states rank lowest when they take in more federal money than they pay in with taxes.

Quite frankly, I WOULD LOVE for the red states to stop soaking up federal money.
Maybe then MY taxes could go down.

I don't know of anybody on this forum who burned Bush in effigy.

But if you compare REAL issues on this forum like people who called Bush or Obama a nazi or a fascist or ___...
WHO (Repubs or Dems) do you think would win that count?

The stupid problem with your reply is that I believe BOTH SIDES NEED TO SHOW RESPECT.
But on your side, you use the bad behavior of some Dems to excuse the bad behavior of some Repubs.

Do you think our country should show more respect for the President?
You have obviously shown some significant issues with a lack of respect for President Bush.
Is lack of respect a problem for President Bush? And one you want us to ignore with President Obama?
