So says Ed Morrissey to Obama groupies who call Republican opposition to the president’s policies “a political war.” He references a particular criticism from an individual who, sometime after February 24, 2004 used any pretext imaginable to demonize George W. Bush.
It’s as if they can’t accept that some people might have legitimate objections, based on our economic philosophy and political principles, to oppose the president’s policies. Heck, back when Bush was president, opposition to the president’s policies was deemed patriotic.
And not to mention that some of the very people now criticizing Obama and congressional Democrats on their spendthrift “stimulus,” had also criticized Bush and congressional Republicans on similar grounds, not holding the line on federal spending.
How ironic it is that some of the very individuals who call criticism of Obama “war” would label any action of his Republican predecessor an abomination.
