In all fairness, a lot of conservatives were complaining during the Bush era: that he was just a “Republican In Name Only”, and basically no better than the Democrats. Even when they had all three branches of the government for awhile, they continued to complain about taxes and “wealth redistribution”, and that the rich getting richer, “deserved it”.
But it is certainly true that the heat has been turned up on Obama, in a way more than any other president I have seen. In the beginning of his presidency, the conservatives jumped in right away saying “don’t whine about race; you have to stand the ‘same scrutiny’ as every other president; none of our criticism is about race, it’s about the policies”. But it really does not sound like the “same scrutiny” at all.
I have never seen so much disrespect directed at a president. Not even Clinton, or “Slick Willie”, who basically epitomized the ultra-liberal hippie-turned-professional.
Liberals did rant pretty hard at Bush, as conservatives will also remind us, it still came nowhere near what we are seeing for Obama!
•While carter was called by many conservatives the “worst” president, all of a sudden, around the middle of Obama’s first term, we see posters of Carter smiling saying something like “I’m glad, because now I’m no longer the worst president in history”.
At least he was labeled that in retrospect, after he was out and the conservatives’ hero Reagan was in, and the thing that really tarnished him like that (and that Reagan basically presided over the ending of) was the whole Iran hostage crisis.
Obama, rather than having a fiasco like that under his belt, quite to the contrary, presided over the elimination of the country’s worst ever individual enemy. But no matter. Obamacare (the thing these people use to justify all this anger; claiming he is SO ultra-radical, even moreso than Carter or Clinton) totally wipes out that accomplishment, and is worse than something like the hostage crisis.
•He is also the only president I have ever seen to have people wishing out of office THE NEXT ELECTION YEAR as soon as he gets in! (“Gone 2012” posters).
•Plus, terms such as “the Zero”, “Obamanation”, “O-bomb-a”, and “O-bum”.
People say they are tired of “the race card”, but ignore the subconscious, which is where a lot of this is coming from. And people like this are not likely to ever consider something like that. Their entire breath is that they are always right and everyone else is wrong. Nothing at all to look at inside; all they go on is “the facts”. As one even told me once, they don’t even have an ego!
As I have been saying, conservatives feel they must prove this nation, as founded, was the greatest in the history of the world. Slavery and colonialism are a huge stain on that. So they must prove the victims somehow deserved it, and are “problematic”, and in fact a major force bringing the nation down (through the guilt ridden “liberals”, using them by trying to “buy their votes” through “free handouts” at “everyone else’s” expense).
So what better way to do that, than to prove the first black president was “the worst in history”. Then, they can do what they always do and say “it’s not racism; it’s just ‘the facts‘!” See; they’re completely exhonerated! History proved them right, and the whole civil rights struggle (which Obama was the pinnacle of) proven wrong. Next, we’ll finally have more impetus for the old drive to “take back” the nation, since “history” proved once and for all, that these people are just helpless “monkeys”.
What’s ignored, as always, is that their “facts” are totally skewed, as always.
