Why do Tea Party protestors call Obama a liar when Bush lied about Iraq, among others?

It seems that the Tea Party are willing to criticize Obama while remaining oblivious to Bush's own failed policies. Why is that?

    Actually, Bush did not lie about Iraq.

    We found both serin and mustard gas.

    They also had a bio-weapons lab.

    The Iraqi general said they had a nuclear program that was flown to Syria.

    The media were lying.

    Oh the same old answers.

    Yes, Obama is president now, but they never criticised Bush back then, did they? In fact, everyone knew it was a lie, and yet he had some of his highest support for invading Iraq.

    Phoenix even says that Bush did not lie about Iraq because they found bio-weapons labs, well, duh, the US had been monitoring these labs since the first gulf war had ended, Hans Blix was going into these places to make sure they were not in use, and they were, er, not in use. Having labs does not mean they were being used. As for finding mustard and serin gas, they obviously did not find enough for it to be considered a danger to Israel, as the record says that no WMDs were ever found, or even ever existed in Iraq at the time.

    Near claims this is being misinformed. If setting up your intelligence agency to deliberatly "misinform" you about a certain situation and tell you what you want to hear is not lying, then i think i'm onto a winner here.

    The problem here is that right wingers want to believe what they want to hear. They only get their information from certain sources, the right wing press, so they are not technically lying here, they are just playing ignorant by ignoring all of the relevant information available.

    I guess that is what they call irony.

    Examples of either would be nice, but indifferent of that you need to realize George Bush is not president any more. And if you actually listened to the TEA Party you would realize they started when Bush was still in office and were criticizing him over TARP. Didn't you know that, Why is that?

    Look they are both the same party open your eyes.Both will tax and spend at the expense of your rights. I don't care about all this crap. I just want to be an American with huge Government OUT in my life. I see all the time these Neo-hippie lib idiots who know nothing about freedom. I don't want to live in a village (Jones town,Salem) they were villages right? Give being an American a chance..Really try thinking for yourself. Think of new ways to resolve problems without spending, or stealing from other people..I know its difficult but it can be done, your American. Stop going straight back to Socialism,Spending and trapping yourself in a box.This applies to all party's.

    I don't want or need a big brother. You do??

    Bush didn't lie! He told us what he had been told! If that is a problem then maybe you should look to the libs that voted to go to war as well. CIA, MI6 and the FSB (the remains of the KGB) all said he had the weapons.

    Because they go on Yahoo answers, and put down everything that doesn't agree with their twisted beliefs.

    Saying Bush lied is a lie in itself. Being misinformed is different from lying, and even then, there was evidence that states he wasn't entirely wrong.

    They can only imagine one liar at a time. That is why they do not recognize Boehner as the liar that he really is. Oh they will be so disappointed when all their white knights turn out to be ugly little witches.

    Because Tea Partiers are typical Republicans, and just like Richard Nixon, they tell lots of lies.

    The tea partiers care about two things: lower taxes and fiscal responsibility.

    That's it. Everything else is superfluous.

    And of course you know the tea party was not even on the radar screen when the Bush administration sold us on using force in Iraq.
