Why do liberals constantly yell at conservatives to respect Obama, when they themselves didn't respect Bush?

    Liberals are hypocrites.

    Well known fact.

    There is nothing more to say.

    Bush's actions engendered the criticism he received. The Iraq War is a prime example. The circumstances surrounding his becoming president were also very controversial. That includes the fact that most voters did not vote for him.

    President Obama has done nothing to equal the misdeeds of Bush but, in any case, the extreme and mostly unfounded criticism started before he was even elected. His election was entirely legitimate and was the result of the wishes of a clear majority of the American voters. After his election and before he was inaugurated, some people including some on Yahoo Answers, started calling for his impeachment. It is obvious that they never intended to even give him a chance. The disrespect shown to him and even to his wife is extreme and without sound basis.

    Funny, isn't it? I never could figure that out. They were without mercy. They still are.

    I think it is high time everyone started to be a bit kinder. We are all on the same team, team USA.

    Bush is old news, as well.

    Because Bush was an incompetent fool who started two pointless wars, left us open to the first attack on this nation's soil since WWII and drove our economy from 3% annual growth to a 9% decline by the end of his presidency.

    By comparison, Obama has ended the war in Iraq and is winding down in Afghanistan, has taken out the leader of and minimized the effectiveness of Al Quaeda, has taken our economy from a loss of 750,000 jobs per month to a gain of 200,000 private sector jobs per month and has led us out of the recession with a 2.8% economic growth rate in the 4th quarter of 2011.
