Respect

Why are the same people who claimed two years ago that any disrespect toward the President was treasonous are now the loudest ones claiming the President is not even American himself? Intellectual consistency must be very difficult.

I've been noticing that for the last 30 years. In fact, with the "Letters To The Editor" section of the Dallas Morning News, the offenders are quite literally the same people from administration to administration. Apparently for them, it's only sedition or treason if the criticism is against anybody who received their votes.

Let's not give those who switched sides in the opposite direction a pass, since they can be just as loud in their condemnation.

Certainly, anyone who was willing to call President Bush anything from Hitler to Chimpy and is now offended that anyone has the audacity to call President Obama similar names is lumped into the same "inconsistency" camp. Neither group is honest, nor constructive. And the histrionics give cover to the truly dangerous people who feel hyped up by the rhetoric and may actually USE one of those guns they brandish.
