    The double standard also existed during the Bush years when the same cast of characters who are now caterwauling about what Obama has done were either strangely silent or even loudly defending the Bush administration doing the same thing.

    Sorry, Bush didn't take over healthcare, and it was you who complained for years about Cheney's meeting with oil tycoons. Bush didn't jack up the deficit either, except to the extent he didn't veto the bills coming from Congress. He pushed tax cuts the entire 8 years. Sorry, you people FAIL again.

    How so? Are you denying that the right wing is guilty of the very same double standard that they are now complaining about? LOL

    Not when they're crafting public policy.
