    Double standard?
    Id say its also impossible to count the number of people comparing Obama to hitler

    it seems like the thing to do among the over dramatic, bias and intellectually weak? (call a political person they dont like hitler)

    I seem to recall people doing both and be criticized for it unless you have some stats that prove otherwise. Some have also been fired

    It only seems different because this is NOW and that was then

    Google results for Bush Hitler: 34,600,000
    Google results for Obama Hitler: 4,720,000 (And most of the first page are links to Hank Williams Jr.'s statement.)

    Now, obviously this doesn't conclusively prove anything. But it should give you pause for thought.

    Bush Haters use the internet more? Bush has been around longer for people to criticize?

    No that gives me no pause because BUSH took office when? 2001? 10 years ago and obama 2009, 2 years ago.



    sorry my friend I see no "double standard"
    its only a matter of NOW and THEN

    DO you think this is true?

    I do not and cannot see how the correlation is made?

    ESPN pulls Monday Night Football intro - NFL News | FOX Sports on MSN
    ESPN is not a government agency or regulated by the government nor did the government call ESPN telling them to fire him. So no his rights were not violated. The Bill of rights is a restriction on what the government and government entities can and can't do.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Not that much longer. The ratio of Bush results to Obama results are more than 7 to 1.

    You're probably right about Bush haters using the Internet more, but I highly doubt that's the sole reason for such a huge difference.

    You also have to account for there being continuously more people on the Internet; at least, there's more people online now than there were in 2003. That should actually increase the results for Obama, even if other things work against it.

    Well its off topic but when I saw it did seem quite nutty. Almost like he was on something lol
    The only proof you need that his rant was to say the least "off" is that even the fox members werent willing to jump in with him. LOL
