Liberal Democrats Should Treat Others the Way They Want to Be Treated

This is really getting ridiculous. On NPR Juan Williams explained that there was something really disturbing going on with Saturday’s march on DC. It wasn’t merely that these people opposed Obama’s policies, but–gasp!–they challenged his very legitimacy as president. (!!) And Joe Wilson actually called the president a liar to his face. (!!)

Williams explained that this was unprecedented in American politics, and was due to the fact that many Americans can’t stand the idea of having a black president.

I am not denying that plenty of Glenn Beck fans could be plausibly classified as racists, nor am I even denying that a lot of these protesters wouldn’t be so worked up if Biden were president. (If Hillary were, they would be too–but because they couldn’t stand a woman being president.)

But give me a BREAK, Juan. You’re saying you don’t remember any Democratic activists saying that George W. Bush wasn’t the legitimate president? They all conceded that he won the election fair and square, and just had a respectful disagreement with his policies?

And no Democratic official at the federal level ever called Bush a liar?

UPDATE: One more thing: The money people who are really running the show here, just love what is happening. After all the shenanigans being pulled against Obama, can you imagine how hardcore and ruthless the ACORN folks are going to be when a Republican is next in office? The two parties are going to keep one-upping each other. For those who think Republicans are the lesser of two evils, remember back when you thought Bill Clinton was the worst president conceivable? Well do you still feel that way? And for those who hold their noses and pull the lever for Democrats: Remember how bad you thought George W. Bush was? Just wait till you see the next Republican who’s elected after ten years of Obama and six years of Biden. (And no that wasn’t a typo.)
