    your comment has absolutely nothing to do with this thread and President Bush or anyone connected to him. Then you add a web site and connect it to Carl Rove????

    I'm sure this has already been covered, but...

    Bush and his administration had nothing to do with people not buying the Dixie Chicks records. He simply commented on the fact that they were bitching about people not buying their records because of what they said about him. He said they can do what they want, but shouldn't complain when people don't want to buy their songs anymore.

    Your insulting denials do nothing to minimize the damage that the Bush administration did to countless private citizens who angered them. Of course Bush himself made no public pronouncements. Nevertheless, his minions deliberately tried to ruin the careers of their enemies, and in many cases, succeeded. You complain about President Obama speaking ill of Rush Limbaugh, but he is not instructing people to "get" Limbaugh. Deny it all you want, here is a partial list of those that Bush's henchmen went after:

    Harry Reid, Helen Thomas, Nancy Pelosi, Jimmy Carter, Valerie Plame, Joe Wilson, Dan Rather, Jane Fonda, the Dixie Chicks, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, Janeane Garofalo, Al Gore, John Kerry, Sean Penn, the French, Muntadhar al-Zaidi the shoe chucker, George Clooney, Martin Sheen, Harry Belafonte, Old Europe, Barbra Streisand, Hans Blix, Al Franken, Bill Moyers, Howard Dean, Keith Olbermann, Ted Kennedy, Michael Moore, Katy Couric, and Oliver Stone.

    Obama simply comments on the facts...there is no negotiation with dittoheads. Bush took every slight personally, and used the power of the presidency to get revenge. Don't pretend it didn't happen, we all lived through it.

    I'll give you Valerie Plame. Every other person on this list I'll need concrete examples of before I point you out to be the liar that you are.

    You are lucky you're 3,000 miles from me and anonymous, but then I suppose that's why you made such a cowardly remark in the first place.

    You made a claim, now prove it. That is how debate works.

    ... members of the press or private citizens that expressed opposition to him and his policies?

    I do not.

    We have had Joe the Plumber attacked by Obama-Biden, as was Sean Hannity, now we have had Rush Limbaugh, Rick Santelli and now Jim Kramer all singled out in short order.

    They also use Rush to make a larger swipe at talk radio in general, as he is the leader of the pack.

    Now, Bush and his Press Secretaries had the pick of hundreds of journalist/celebrities to rag on, but didn't to the best of my recollection.

    Obama has had the vocal opposition of a few prominent journalists/radio show hosts... and they have been singled out.

    I think it is a pretty creepy tactic but illustrative of who Obama and his Komrades are.
    From a strategy perspective, it's a risky but possibly very good move. Limbaugh, fairly or not, is considered by the vast majority of non-listeners to be fairly right-of-center and ideological. If Obama can use him to paint republicans too reactionary and vicious, then it's entirely a point in his favor.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).
