Rage from the right?
Take a look at the number of arrests made and the behavior of the people at the 9/12 demonstration versus at the G20 protests.

No kidding huh. One need only look at the footage of each event, and the after photos as well, to see the stark contrast. The after photos of the innauguration was rather telling as well, when compared to the 9/12 event. Garbage strewn everywhere, just a mess.

What are you talking about? Obama and the Democrats clearly don't want to exploit their powers like some have done in the past. Obama is TRYING to get Republican options so EVERYONE can have a say in these bill before they pass. It's not that hard to figure out.

If Obama and the Democrats were using their powers without Republican say and doing things sorta like Bush then there would be grounds for statements like you posted.

What's the problem with Obama trying to be bipartisan? Something you're not used to maybe!

To the OP - Were you not around during the last conservative administration? The liberals were filled with such blind hatred for George Bush. The protesting and name calling that was called "patriotic" then is now being called "unpatriotic", "nazi like" and worse. Such a phony double standard - where were you then? I'll bet you weren't talking about "the rage of the left" when a movie was released about the assassination of the president.

The extreme emotions that are in play are totally justified and have everything to do with his political philosophies. This president is a phony and a liar - he has no accomplishments that we (or he) can be proud of - none. As a community organizer his closest cronies were radicals determined to bring down the government. As a senator his record was abominable showing laziness and neglect, as president he is carrying on with the destruction of our economy and the depletion of the military. His ego is huge, his abilities nonexistent. He talks about being bipartisan, but his actions prove otherwise.

His radical agenda shows no respect for the American people, the Constitution or the Rule of Law. As such, the American people should not mindlessly stand by and support an agenda that obviously does not put America first.

George Bush was not a true conservative and his administration was a failure because of that. The left obviously hated him simply because he was republican as his spending and creation of more big government were far more "left" than "right".

Wake up and see what Obama is trying to do to this country. If you cherish the Constitution you'll understand just how dangerous this man is. His embarrassing apologies for the United States, his pandering to the United Nations and his cozying up to the likes of Chavez and Castro as well as his support of Zelaya in Honduras are disgraceful. Like Carter before him, dictatorships seem to be more appealing to him than democracies, or in this case, a republic.

Now he's flying off to Copenhagen instead of dealing with Afghanistan - 30 calls to the IOC
to discuss the Olympics, but 1 call to the military commander in the field - disgraceful. His actions are not those of a leader of the greatest nation in the world, but of a self absorbed, power mad, egotistical empty suit.

This is not a "sick hatred" and your concern for "civility" and "respect" ring hollow. There is a truly justified fear that our freedoms will be diminished under Obama. He's already shown vast disregard for freedom of speech for anyone that disagrees with him. If you wish to play the partisan card and support his anti-american policies, fine - just don't minimize the legitimate concerns of those that choose stand up for freedom.

Leaving mountains of trash anywhere is the American way.

Other than words how is he trying to be bipartisan? Has any of the republican concerns made it into the health care bill? No because they do not need bipartisanship. Serving lip service to bipartisanship is not bipartisan. They want to whine about it so they do not have to take the blame if they pass it.

This is not a political fight it is a religious disagreement. The right wing crazies are responding to a blasphemer that does not acknowledge the sanctity of the ONE RIGHT WAY.
