    Here's an article that relates to you in almost every word. Read it and weep! UB



    A pattern has emerged. Liberal citizens and politicians during the Bush years were permitted to speak out against the Iraq war, root for an American defeat, and cheer with the news of each dead American, and they were labeled patriots. An American speaks out against Obama's socialist policies and he is labeled anti-American. A liberal is able to chant anti-Bush slogans and compare him to Hitler and he is exercising his right to free speech. An American questions Obama's judgment both domestically and on the international stage and he is called a racist. I have attempted to point out to liberal friends and family that if they simply took the vast majority of offensive statements, policies, or actions of Obama over the past nine months and imagined them emanating from Bush, they would see the hypocrisy in their stance -- to no avail. They are content to sit back and watch this administration gut the Constitution, usurp power wherever it can find it, ignore the intent of the founders of this country and the successes of the free market economy which helped lead us to the position of the only world's superpower. But they will wake up in a few years to find that their children are not safe from harm's way, their grandchildren will be working off the enormous debt incurred by this government and will never achieve the economic success of their grandparents, and when they need medical care, they will be waiting in line like the Europeans and Canadians who used to turn to the US in times of emergency. Yet they will have their civil rights, for as long as Bush is not the one authorizing the wiretapping of their cell phones, all is good. Another bottle of champagne anyone?" --columnist Lauri Regan
    Lauri Regan??????????? After having just read the first sentence in this post I have come to the conclusion that she either has only the mental capacity of a 2 yr old or she never heard about fact checking. Is she really serious when she says "A pattern has emerged. Liberal citizens and politicians during the Bush years were permitted to speak out against the Iraq war, root for an American defeat, and cheer with the news of each dead American, and they were labeled patriots."


    Let's look back a few years and see what was actually being said.

    Donald Rumsfeld Aug 29 2006: ""Any kind of moral and intellectual confusion about who and what is right or wrong can severely weaken the ability of free societies to persevere."

    "Why don’t you liberals just admit it? You don’t like the military. It’s all phony when you say you support the troops," Mark Levin (Hannity calls him "The Great One"), 11/2/06

    “The left has a disdain for the military... They’re dangerous... trying to undermine the will of the American people." Tom DeLay, 10/31/06

    "It’s clear that the Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry wing of the Democratic Party has a visceral loathing for the American military and for, frankly, America as a country in the world. Their whole approach is to blame us for what, in fact, our enemies do... I think it tells you how deep the sickness is in the left wing of the Democratic Party.” Newt Gingrich, 11/1/06

    "That’s your Party that undermines our troop morale and emboldens our enemies," Sean Hannity, 2/1/08.

    I hardly think that above quotes could be construed as calling critics of Bush or the Iraq war patriotic.
    I will also say though that calling people who oppose Obama's policies unpatriotic is just as wrong.

    Where did you serve? Sounds to me like you spent the majority of your time holding hands with Murtha.

    We had our share of asshats in the corps too.
    108 Air Defense Artillery, Al Karj, Saudi Arabia. JTF-SWA

    Whatever an asshat is, you proved the corps had at least one!
    These personal attacks are really getting old, just because someone disagrees with a point of view, some have to resort to personal attacks. I dont know what an asshat is, buy maybe I engaged in the same??

    Branding democrats/liberals who have chosen to serve in the military as AWOL or trying to get out of their commissions is really beneath the character of what I thought retriever enthusiasts were about. I don't like seeing my brothers-in-arms, of any color, creed, or political party degraded like that. None of that is supposed to matter when you put that uniform on. I'm still waiting to hear what those accusations are based upon.

    That was such a lovely piece of alienating, hate-filled detritus, I may include it in my Christmas cards this year. Good luck winning back the whitehouse with that type of patriotism.

    One reason Obama is president, is not so much people were voting FOR him, but many were rather voting AGAINST that type of hatred.

    There's something we agree on. Time to throw a bucket of water on this one. I'm outta here.
