You have a very short memory don't you?

And honestly don't you think you could have come up with better examples than Ann and an illegal watchdog group?

First of all you didn't even understand the swastika comment, secondly, why is it that you the Bush administration, Rush, and all your other friends get to have it both ways but she doesn't?

Town hall meetings should be civil. People have legitamate questions and this is far too much of a serious issue for the protesters to be acting like babies throwing a tantrum when there is intelligent discussion to be had.

and then those people crying saying "I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK!"

What the fuck? What has honestly changed so drastically in their life that they feel their country has been taken from them Perhaps the conservatives on the forum can enlighten me on this.

This happened with the Dems during Bush too. All the whining about civil liberties being stripped away when really only a minute percentage of Americans felt these effects, and most of those being small effects to begin with. People just love to whine as often as possible about every little thing. Half the tea-baggers were just whining about Obama being elected, and not so much about taxes. And half of those people were whining about a black man being in the White House. And half of those people think the Kenyan government put him in power to usurp us all. He's gonna make all the whiteys into slaves.

...in which case I'm going to make 2861U2 one of MY slaves.

GWB wasn't civil? Heck, I don't even remember him calling any cops "stupid."
In fact, one of causative factors of Bush Derangement Syndrome was the man's utter lack of being fazed by, stooping down to the level of, or taking the bait of the Michael Moores, Cindy Sheehans, Code Pinks, MSNBC or other mouthpieces of the Unhinged-Left.

But progressives can have an organization called Take Back America and during the campaign Senator Obama can tell them, "It's going to be because of you that we take our country back" right?

Both sides do it. Consider yourself enlightened.

I don't think Obama did himself any favours by saying what he said. However, there's a big difference between saying that someone acted "stupidly" and outright calling them "stupid", and the former is what Obama said, not the latter.

Well he let Cheney do that... Bush came off too aloof and unknowing of what was going on around him to ever really lose his cool, because in order to lose it you had to have it in the first place. He didn't.

That's why we have so many of these:

I see, he was too stupid to be uncivil. Um, I wonder what the Dixie Chicks Mensa scores were?

in so many words, a vote for the Democrats is a vote for Al Qaeda.

Bush Says 'America Loses' Under Democrats - washingtonpost.com

of course, calling an officer's comment "stupid," while minor, isn't nearly as bad as telling a Senator to go fuck himself.

You're right. Unknowning is a much nicer word.

Well they are two completely different words; one implies not having the ability to, the other just implies not knowing. I think Bush fell on the side of not wanting to know.
