Is it just me [View all]

or does it seem like the right-wing/Fox News pundits have been recycling pretty much every (valid) criticism we had about then-President George W. Bush to attack & smear President Obama?

1. Taking too many vacations- Check
2. Not smart/incompetent/doesn't know what he is doing (show us your college transcripts!)- Check
3. Too divisive (this one actually makes me laugh out loud because it is so laughably false)- Check
4. "Out of touch"/living in a bubble/shielded from "the real world"- Check
5. Big Spender (singlehandedly driving up national debt/deficit)-Check
6. Pretty much everything that the teabaggers spew about President Obama seem, at least to me, to be valid criticisms of George W. Bush that they are consciously or unconsciously (probably a little of both) projecting onto Obama.

There's probably a few more I'm missing out on (feel free to add to the list). I know that they lie pretty much 24-7-365 about all manner of things (esp. RE: Obama) but these are the kind of lies- the ones that are deliberately (and very clearly) crafted for propaganda purposes- that REALLY get under my skin for some reason.
