Patriots

Here's a question that has stumped me:

Back during W's first term the Republicans began to call anyone that criticized Bush as being unpatriotic for not supporting our country. Then once the Iraq war began if anyone criticized Bush, they were told that they were being both unpatriotic and failing to support the troops during a time of war. Okay, so what has changed, we still have a war going and still have a President, but somehow the rules got changed, it appears that on the GOP side it's okay to criticize the President and still be patriotic, as well as not hurting the troops. I'm trying to figure out just how it was not okay under Bush, but okay under Obama, but I somehow cannot put my brain around it.

1. You do not understand it because you do not have a republican brain

republican brains can not connect dots

remember those dot pictures when you finished it created a picture
no republican has ever finished one

2. It's as clear as black and white. It's only unpatriotic if the president is a Republican.

4. You have to acknowledge his Presidency first.

How can it be Patriotic to accept a Kenyan, Muslim,..., halfbreed?

5. I can remember an almost challenge to protest the war coming from conservatives

when we went into Iraq. They would have loved to have gotten the "hippie protestors" back from the Vietnam era. Ann Coulter even promoted some kid that was a marine, trying to claim he was spit on. That guy ran and hid when some sort of gay porn activity was exposed, if I remember right.
