Bush haters were un-american, but Obama haters are Patriotic?? (seems so..)

Am I dreaming, or was this not the reality?? Anyone who had ANY negative to say about President Bush was chewed up and spit out, now you can say whatever the hell you want, and no one cares. So what happened? Let's not try to pretend. There is definitely a double standard here. No one could REALLY let Bush have it until near the end, when the entire country finally realized that he was a complete and utter failure. So what has changed? Or am I completely delusional? Maybe I am the only person who has noticed this...

Dissent was not patriotic when Bush was president.

A lot of people said it was.

I don't think sympathizing with someone who attacked us is patriotic, but we saw a lot of that from the left early on. Call it dissent or whatever. Many people said we deserved 9/11. Of course they'll deny that now.

Almost no one was saying we deserved 9/11. Plenty were saying 9/11 was a natural consequence of our overseas actions.

I doubt you'll see the difference.

What Bush haters were dubbed un American? Didn't Michael Moore win an Oscar for Far 9/11? Boy he was really censored.

If the media gave these labels I don't really care. If it was the WH then you have cause for concern.

Talking about countries harboring terrorists.

So far the level of understanding context and compare and contrast seems to be lost on those that lean left.

Does O'Reilly make public policy or signs your paycheck? If not get over it.

People can hate/disagree all they want. It's called a free country for a reason.

The very fact that Moore won shows the ability to speak freely without fear of repercussions.

Was Moore blacklisted from any studios? Was he unable to get any funding for future projects?
