    To be fair, a lot of conservatives do use Reagan as their standard of measure.

    So what? He's a good measure, and had a successful administration. You say we had an actor who played a lawyer throughout his administration, and we say you had a lawyer who played an actor throughout his administration.

    Oh, trust me, I know. As I recall, Republicans have no problem on their end voting for actors.

    Neither do Democrats from 1992-2000.

    I'm sure it was a republican so that it would somehow look back on Obama
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    In the old days, a really bad stage actor could expect to be pelted with rotten fruits and vegetables. It's exactly that sort of accountability that needs to be brought back in full force. It's the public's way of saying, "Let's not parse words here. You suck."
    Liberals have forgotten what professional courtesy and respect are; so much for that "tolerance" of ideas and diversity. Liberal tolerance only extends to those who obviously agree with them. If not, they are impugned, insulted and have their property defaced.

    Bravo Liberals, you take society to new lows with your outrageous misplaced hatred for a man who desperately attempted to keep you safe regardless of whether he had to take you there kicking and screaming and whining.

    You just can't get any lower than a Bush hating Liberal who decries the efforts to catch terrorists and impugns a man trying to protect them.

    Carry on; I expect we will see many more examples of Liberal intolerance for the next decade or so.

    Liberal intolerance? Coming from the right that is really funny...

    lets see .. are there any right wing intolerances?

    Homosexuals, most minorities (especially during elections), Muslims, anyone that disagree with them...

    yep plenty of right wing intolerance..

    So because probably one or two morons did this you are placing the blame on liberals? Please, try to step outside of the whole partisan argument for a moment so that you can see how reality actually works. The people who committed this act are idiots. Like I said, they didn't even attack the right Bush. If this type of behavior was common among Liberals it would be far more widespread. So perhaps instead of playing the typical partisan rhetoric you could focus your anger on the idiot(s) who perpetrated the act in the first place.

    Re: George Bush monument defaced

    Good god, why? Stuff like this makes no sense. We have freedom of speech as a tool to voice our dissent. There is no "freedom to destroy property." Like many of you, the fact that it was GHWB's statue makes this all that more ridiculous. I actually like him a lot more compared to his boy.

    Well I will officially stand up for the dems/libs and say, if it was one of ours...we don't claim 'em anymore.

    Get off the train douche bags...you're out of the club.

    This statement drips with misguided partisan rhetoric. You have no valid basis to make such a declaration. It's also rife with irony that you make comments like this given your own conduct as a self identified conservative. It's okay for you to show a lack of courtesy and respect, but not liberals?
