    Which is the same crap happening to Obama.

    At least you're honest enough to admit it didn't happen. Lowdown is (once again dishonestly) trying to cast movies, talk radio and banner ads as "a local state sponsored fair, an entertainer in front of a big crowd openly suggested that Bush should be killed to the audience."

    And if he were a Black clown in Texas wearing a Perry mask, he could now be on death row.

    With that woman Davis down there making all that noise, it would be a wonder he would ever be born.

    But if a minority was born in Texas, from your post, you would call them a waste on society. Why do you folks only support the fetus until it is born?

    LOL. Liberal, liberal, liberal. It's always, race, gender, sexual orientation. On everything.

    Anybody that can read and not be a liberal will see that you (as all liberals do) are the one that brought up race in the example you provided. Not once, but twice. I don't think that Davis woman cares one way or the other how many babies of a particular color get murdered via abortion, as long as they get murdered by abortion.

    I supported my kids when they were born. I don't owe anybody else anything. However if a person is having problems and needs help (over the years it's happened several times) with themselves and family, I've helped. Provided they were trying to help themselves.

    Useless people that are incapable of thought, the same type that pretend to know what I would say about someone, I wouldn't do squat for. They are to dumb to appreciate anything anyway.

Frankly, I find it very cowardice for people to hide behind "free speech" when all they've done was show blatant disrespect for the President of the United States no matter who he is or from whatever political party he affiliates.

    How many times was George Bush hanged, burned in effigy, etc., during his Presidency, I wonder? Probably dozens of times at various protests. Nobody interpreted this as a threat against the President, not even Bush's supporters that I know of. But here we have Obama's supporters going crazy, trampling free speech under foot in a desperate attempt to salvage some dignity for the big Zero. The smell of fear and desperation is unmistakable. You guys ought to be ashamed that you are willing to give up our civil rights for that Clown.

    This brouhaha over the rodeo clown is a manifestation of Obama's Cult of Personality, and you all ought to SNAP OUT OF IT.
    To this claim that "liberals" get all butt-hurt whenever anyone from the opposing party challenges a claim of being disrespectful towards "their" President, I think people know bad behavior when they see it. But for the record, I don't consider myself a liberal nor a Democrat although I do identify more with the Democrat Party than I do the Republican Party. I like to think I can see the good and the bad within both parties. I take the better qualities of both and try to shape my ideology around those issues. For example, I don't like the continuous dependency on social programs by some segments of the population, but I can understand how many people would struggle to have their survival needs met without these programs. I think we as a nation can met the needs of those in need without maintaining a revolving door to such benefits. Nevertheless, I call inappropriate behavior what it is no matter what side of the political divide the behavior stems from. For example, when the Iraqi tossed a shoe at GWB during a press conference he held in Iraq, I thought it was disrespectful. Moreover, it was dangerous! What if it had been a knife instead? I may not have liked him much as President, but I certainly didn't want to see him get hurt. And that's where I'm coming from with this clown issue.

    He may have been attempting to convey to the crowd his displeasure with President Obama, but he could have shown it in a much more appropriate way. This wasn't a man trying to be funny. This was a man trying to stir the crowd to anger. This wasn't a man making jokes. This was a man attempting to mock the President of the United States. No matter what he may have thought of his policies or the direction he believes the President is taking the country in, there are better more appropriate ways to be funny yet not be disrespectful of the President of the United States.

    Liberals didn't think it was such a big deal at the time.
    As an aside, between 1976 and 2004 I really wasn't as into politics during that period as I am now. Of course, I had so many other things taking place in my life back then - finishing high school, serving my country on active duty in the Navy, taking care of my young family, etc. But since 2004, I've paid closer attention to the political wrangling of the day, and I must admit I don't like the hyper-partisanship I see every day. I've often wondered why can't a person simple call out a wrong without being labeled a liberal whinny-ass or a conservative blowhard?

    Great post. I respected GWB's authority as the general will of the people. I even voted for him the first time around over Gore. I was GOP back then, but I always voted my conscience, regardless of party affiliation....but I, like you, identified more with the Democratic party.

    After Bush's first four years, I became somewhat displeased with his performance. Homeland Security was a big one for me....we had the NSA, the CIA, and the FBI.....we pretty much had our bases covered...if they wanted to start a joint task force and needed personnel....great, hire them...but don't create a new bureaucracy. But overall, I think he did a respectable, if not admirable job with 9/11...that was a tough situation with the entire nation in mourning and demanding justice.

    But, I digress....Bush's second election....I voted for Kerry. By that time, we were deep into Iraq and treating Afghanistan as the red headed stepchild, that was the actual homebase for Bin Laden to carry out 9/11. Then there was Katrina. My sister lived in Louisiana at the time....up North in the Alexandria area. She's an RN and took a three week unpaid leave to help the folks down in New Orleans....the stuff she told me was horrific. She also told me first hand information about the hard hit 9th Ward that I never even thought about.

    The homes in the 9th ward were mostly built by factory and industrial workers who retired in the 60's, 70's and 80's.....as they died off, they willed those properties to their kids. By the time Katrina hit....those good paying factory and industrial jobs were long gone and you had a lot of people living in their childhood homes with little income to spare for things such as.....HOMEOWNER'S INSURANCE. If you go down to the 9th Ward to this very day....it's still a ghost town.

    That got me thinking about my political affiliation....but what sealed the deal for me was a little later on....with a slur among GOP members. That slur was RINO. That just plain pissed me off and was the beginning of the extremism I see in the Republican Party today. That was when I filled out a new registration card and went to the Democratic Party. I still vote my conscience and not with the Party line.....but I lean more towards Dems now than I ever have.

    Your scenario didn't happen with at the rodeo, but it did with Bush 43 and it NEVER made front page news. It was a joyous discussion piece among Leftists though.

    Raging partisan like you are leaving that out because you are dishonestly trying to make it seems like they were just making some innocent fun at Obama. I don't expect anything you say these days to be even remotely honest, but it's a new level of dishonesty, even for you.
    ROTFLOL... this coming from the master of lies and deceit? The individual best known on DP for putting words in other folks mouths they never stated. For twisting what people write.

    There is a major difference between poking fun at the President and suggesting that the President should be killed.
    Find me the story where they suggested Obama be killed.

    Can you point to a single event between 2000 and 2008, where at a local state sponsored fair, an entertainer in front of a big crowd openly suggested that Bush should be killed to the audience? Try. Use Google.
    reality check: Ugh... doh...Homer... that was a man wearing an Obama mask. Nobody was asking to see Obama killed. Find me the story where that was the main thrust.

    I can find movie based on the assassination of Bush 43, and leftists responding with applause about the flick. I didn't notice front page news, and I didn't notice this being a national story that resulted in the actors, producers or directors being dragged through the muck publicly and blackballed.

    As for google... did you try... "obama rodeo clown kill obama"? Brings nada. How about... "crowd at rodeo wants Obama killed"... brings nada.

    Back to the drawing board for you.
