The Bush tax cuts and Bush's wars were such huge talking points because spending increased under Bush and we started running large deficits. If we had contained spending, it would not have been nearly as big an issue. And don't get me started on the Medicare prescription benefit.

But look at what happened, the Dems blasted Bush over spending, then they amped it up several magnitudes and now they are silent on spending under Obama. If they didn't beat up Bush on spending it would have been over something else.

I, like most regulars here, blasted Bush for spending, Part D, NCLB, and his other examples of federal overreach. Did ANY of that matter to our lib trolls?

If you made a nice comment on Bush's ties, they'd scream that that was "proof" you approved of everything Bush ever did or thought of doing.

If you pointed out how over-the-top their criticism was of Bush and how the same standard was not being applied to Dems, you'd get the same treatment.

If you did not hate Bush as irrationally and completely as they did, it was "proof" that you hated children, puppies, the elderly, etc....
