Gingrich and Hannity agree: The bashing of Bush was much worse than attacks on Obama

Jimmy Carter's accurate remarks observing the racial animus that is the bedrock of a good deal of the outrageous animosity directed at President Obama have right-wingers like Sean Hannity all in tizzy.

The two of them promptly commiserated on Hannity's Fox News show last night about how awful it was for Carter to bring up the issue:

Gingrich: Well, it first of all is amazing to me that when the Left hated George W. Bush, when they booed him during the State of the Union, when MoveOn.org attacked him relentlessly, when Democrats used vicious language, somehow it wasn't inappropriate.

Now, I don't know if Jimmy Carter thinks there was racism involved in disliking a white president, but I would say that the amount of anger, hostility, and nastiness on the Left against George W. Bush was vastly greater than anything that's happened with President Obama.


OK, done laughing? I know you all got a good belly laugh outta that one. Because we all remember what it was like trying to speak up about Bush, especially after 9/11. Merely criticizing the man brought instant charges of treason.

1. Truth is not a bash. It's the truth.
That's where their analysis of pretty much everything goes astray.

BushCo tried to make TRANS-National War Slaves for Hire out of my Homeland.

May this NEVER be Forgotten.

7. Let's have no "moral equivalence," as the neo-cons used to say.....
Bush lied us into, and launched a war of aggression--and that's one hell of a difference.

10. Really?!? I don't recall that anyone protested a Bush rally...
openly flaunting loaded guns (or unloaded guns). No one called Bush a liar in a formal setting while he was giving a speech.

"..instant charges of treason" is exactly right. Thank you. I thought I was losing my mind because no one else seems to remember that.

The Rethugs had a couple arrested for wearing t-shirts critical of Bush during a rally. Even many Democrats were critical of Code Pink for being "disruptive." I wish I were in a position to ask Gingrich, Hannity and all the other RW asshats, what exactly the reaction would have been if Democrats had protested Bush toting loaded guns. (Part of this fantasy is them being capable of answering a question truthfully....}

Gingrich and Hannity must have been dropped on their heads immediately after the election, to have such serious memory loss.
