Poor Barack, constantly under attack by those all those heartless conservatives. Geoffrey R. Stone tells us all about it in Obama faces vile insults like no other president has. It's almost enough to make a person cry.
Prof. Stone admits that some of the past presidents had to endure some insults, but he conveniently skips the ones between Nixon and Obama. Then there's this:
But no president in our nation's history has ever been castigated, condemned, mocked, insulted, derided and degraded on a scale even close to the constantly ugly attacks on Obama.
Oh, give us a break. One would have to have had his head in the sand not to have seen George W. Bush's detractors hurl venom by the barrel at him. But none of that matters in partisan politics. A skillful partisan can take advantage of fading memories and start anew each time. History is a thing of the past.
But let's go back anyway through the time machine that is the internet. Here's the same Professor Stone castigating George W. Bush in 2007 in U.S. needs to hear Bush admit errors. To his credit, Mr. Stone did suggest some thought be given before pulling troops out of Iraq. Unfortunately, President Obama didn't appear to have given it much thought at all and barreled ahead anyway. He took a victory and turned it into a disaster. In fact, it's hard to find anything regarding the Middle East that he did right. And he's not done yet.
The U.S. doesn't need to hear President Obama admit to errors. The U.S. needs a new president who is a smart and capable leader, characteristics Obama lacks.
There, Professor Stone. Add that to your list of insults Obama has to endure. And kick yourself once in the rear for each time you voted for Obama.
