Thank you to the Forward Community Page for this commentary..
It’s time we called them out for who & what they truly are.. President Obama is a mild mannered, cordial, thoughtful man.. Who has done nothing to deserve such flagrant hatred.. Many on the right would have us believe that this is simply a byproduct of his policies & performance as President.. But we know this is hogwash.. Because these very same people voted for & supported George W Bush & his horrendous policies.. They turned a blind eye when he lied us into war.. And said nothing as he turned a record surplus into a record deficit.. I don’t recall them being outraged when Bush flippantly said “I don’t know where Osama Bin Laden is & I really don’t think about it that much”.. Not a peep from them as Cheney met with Oil Companies at the White House in secret to form the Country’s energy policy.. Bush & Cheney handed out billions in contracts to their buddies at Enron, Halliburton, Blackwater & many other companies.. But silence from the right.. I could go on & on pointing out the terrible things done by the Bush administration.. Yet there were no calls for impeachment.. Or for fiscal responsibility from these people.. No anger or hatred towards Bush from them.. Not once did they protest.. But now that someone is cleaning up Bush’s humongous mess.. You are inconsolable.. Get real.. You can say what ever you like.. But we see you for who & what you truly are…
