    Of course, any public figure, including the POTUS, is going to have fans as well as some that dislike their actions/opinions. The difference, that you have observed, is mainly which public figures the majority of the media chooses to defend/excuse.

    Not sure what the alphabet network is, but source?

    You cant disagree with this president without being accused being a racist by some of those networks
    Source?

    You live an alternate reality if you think the media treats Obama the same as Bush
    You'll have no problem bringing me back to reality with a source then, won't you?

    Of course not. The world is out to get you and make Conservatives look bad. It's a vast conspiracy. The UN, the media, Hollywood....

    Re: Bush was fair game is Obama?

    Of course he's fair game just like Bush was. I had many issues with Bush when he was president. Some of his policies and decisions were, in my opinion were bad for the country. I feel the same way about Obama. I felt it was silly and childish when people put monkey masks on Bush and the same with Obama. My preacher is a republican and has many things to say about Obama and the Dems. but he keeps it out of the Church. About 2 months ago the audio guy in the back put on an Obama mask, the only person that saw it was the Preacher, he stopped the sermon and told the guy that the church was not the place for childish acts like that. A few days later we were having a meeting, at night in the Fellowship hall and the same guy put some kind of political cartoon on the bulletin board, the Preacher saw it, took it down and proceeded to explain to this idiot that a Church is not the place for this kind of political crap. The guy has not been back in Church since then.

    There's plenty to criticize Obama on with out getting all school yard childish. The same with Congress and the Senate, non of them are doing what they should be doing.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    Sure he is fair game... problem is that some of the attacks are based on racism, and that is something Bush never had to contend with.

    Yes. It's just that he has to be ridiculed in different arenas, because never, EVER, will the drive by media fire at him.

    I am always amused when I hear the "It is very disrespectful not to refer to him as President Obama" by democrats who a) drop the President when referring to Bush and b) drop the President when referring to Obama (yes I am talking about you Melissa Harris-Perry)

    NO. People that ridicule Obama are racist haters and they hate the fact that a half black man is in the "White"house.

    That's because some of his remarks are based on racism. Bush never had to contend with that because he wasn't stupid enough to elicit counter attacks.
