Why are left wingers so angry about people criticizing Obama, when their side compared Bush to Hitler?

for 8 years?

Now they're all upset about Obama getting his share of political opposition.

Don't they realize? This is normal. Politics is always like this.

And they don't hesitate to dive in when it's their turn.

Update:

Mr. Wolf, it's a little late to start backtracking now.

"Bush is Hitler" was the unofficial motto of the DNC until Howard Dean told them to cut it out.

    It's called " Double Standard." Plus Obama's Skin color, according to Libs. Makes him superior to all the White Presidents before him. But THAT'S not RACIST, of course. Just ask Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and Eric Holter.

    Bush was portrayed as a war criminal, the first to torture (not the first to use rendition), accused of 9-11, accused of being pro business, anti poor due to tax cuts which actually favored the poor with double child credits and big EITA credits resulting in up to $5,000 in refunds for people earning under $25,000, etc. He was even blamed for Katrina. Add to that, the Patriot Act which has grown to every area of our lives under Obama to include our medical records.

    The difference between Obama and Bush is that Obama does not tolerate being scrutinized by the media. He has demonized an entire network because they are watch dogs. He wants to restore the Fairness Doctrine in some form using the FEC to change how news stories are chosen by editors even in news print over which the FEC has no authority. The DOJ has intimidated journalists to the point that many sources have been lost. Journalists are now either quitting their jobs or being fired for being off Obama's message. Obama wants to control the media worse than Nixon which was one reason he was forced to resign yet this seems to be tolerated under Obama. Bush ignored the media. I do respect that about him.

    Remember when the Left portrayed Bush as a chimp? If you did that to their Messiah, they'd be out there burning cities and looting tomorrow.

    What's dangerous about Obama is he wants no criticism whatsoever and has his Pit Bulls in the DOJ dogging reporters and news agencies so they are afraid to say anything that paints his regime in anything but a positive light. Trouble is, that is what Hitler did, too,making it Hitlerlike.

    Because Bush and Hitler had some similarities, like relying on slanderous media propaganda and justifying invasion on made up excuses. Conservatives just have no personal accountability for their own behavior and think they are justified in acting exactly like the way they think liberals did.

    You get outraged at the things liberals said about Bush and other Republicans, yet you think liberals have not right to get outraged at the things you say about Obama and other Democrats? Double standards much? Oh, wait... you conservatives are all about the double standards. When you slander liberals, you think it's "freedom of speech," but any criticisms of conservatives is "censorship."

    Because you were bashing him before he was even sworn in!

    Would you like to talk about how republicans put their political agenda above the best interest of the nation?

    BTW---It is a lie to say we compared Bush to Hitler for 8 years! People did not start bashing Bush until he tried to stonewall any investigation into the 9/11 attack!

    "It is our number one priority, to make sure this is a one term presidency"

    Bush was a twit, that started two wars, allowed to US economy to tumble, failed the education system, sold national park space, completely failed a hurricane, and so much more.

    This isn't political opposition, this is a witch hunt that started before President Obama ever even put his foot into the white house.

    I can say people who compare Obama to Hitler are stupid and people who compared Bush are stupid.

    I bet you only see the wrong in comparing Bush to Hitler.

    That is the Liberal way, it is what they do and will continue unless they are trained to think.
