    I'm 48 years old and never treated a sitting President with the kind of disrespect that the right shows Obama. I've disagreed with policies and ideology.....even poked some good natured fun(which is what this whole clown thing pretty much is) at them....but I've never seen hatred and vitriol like it is now.

    Perhaps with Nixon....but being born in '65, I was too young to experience it.
    Sorry, but it was much worse for Bush. Much much much worse. On the other hand, it's not Republicans who are calling Pres. Obama a war criminal. It's the people on the far left. The left still calls Bush a war criminal who lied us into war even after 2 bipartisan commissions cleared him and his administration (see 3rd link above).

    Me? It's free speech whether I like or or not and therefore what they did to this clown by banning him is completely wrong IMO.
    This kind of rhetoric directed against sitting presidents goes back more than 100 years. Lincoln was called a braying ass, an imbecile, disgusting in manner, a pettifogger, and worse in print. I suppose the yearning for a more civil discourse goes back as far as well, but the solutions used then were more on the order of burning down the newspaper offices and destroying the presses. There's no use in claiming that this side or the other started it.

    Missouri NAACP calls this act a hate crime.

    No, I'm being serious.

    That's just asinine. That's the problem with extremism on either side of the fence.....making mountains out of molehills.

    While I don't believe in hate crimes this is ridiculous. Now if the clown said "Hey you wanna see this ni**er hit by a bull" I could see them wanting to go after it as a hate crime. However, this is far far from it.

    Bush's second term? There was a lot of valid criticism....but most people still treated him with civility.

    Yes....I saw the pictures of the "haunted house" decorated with effigies of Bush and his administration strung up...and I thought it was ridiculous....and other various crap that I disagreed with.

    I think it's you who has the blinders on.
    Maybe so, but not to this.

    Bush was blamed by members of congress (not just media pundits, message boards and so on) for being a war criminal, losing the war, spreading the war, high gas prices, high unemployment (I know laughable now), high debt, high deficit and everything else under the sun. Not a peep now on the same issues from the same people. And that's not even counting what Obama had to say about Bush.

    What's good for the goose, is good for the gander. Even if the gander gets a whole lot less of it.

    What crime would be committed in such a scenario? Granted it wouldn't be a funny joke then but what would be the crime?

    Oh bullcrap....GOP members of Congress have been stilling their feet and holding their breaths like spoiled, petulant little children....they'd rather blow up the country than to help move this country forward for fear that Obama will get credit. They've filibustered more....by a HUGE MARGIN, by the way....than any other Congress in US history.....they've openly called the president a Marxist, Muslim and a host of other crap....they not only have called him a war criminal....but also Benghazied and Fast and furioused him half to death...all for political grandstanding.....they just voted for the 40TH damned time to repeal the AHCA.....

    I personally don't think there would be one, i said I could see them going after him as one if he used the term ni**er and then had the bull run over the dummy. Similar to hanging a rope on a tree with a black dummy. Again, that didn't happen in this case and I don't think this guy did anything wrong in this instance.
