Why is that Bush was given so much crap from the left for infringing on civil liberties, but Obama gets a pass for continuing the Patriot Act, drone attacks, undeclared wars, etc?

Is it because Obama has the (D) next to his name?

President Obama does not make the law; that's the province of Congress.

Obama didnt authorize a GUN SEIZURE in the middle of a natural disaster. Obama and for that fact any politician from now on is gonna error on the side of more govt intrusion lest a terrorist attack happens and the top FBI and CIA official report in front of congress that the POTUS didnt give them the tools to stop the attack. Pathetic but thats the game. A terrorist attack is a legacy killer!!

There is over whelming evidence that both parties are terrible on protecting rights and freedom. So much evidence Colombo would stumble around for 5 minutes and solve the case. It it is all so proof that the parties and their cheer leading partisans are much alike but not honest enough to admit it. In a nut shell both parties suck.

Ever heard of veto power?

Veto is not a member of the Italian Mafia.

Why is it that republicans gave Bush a pass on infringing on our rights but are giving Obama crap for doing the same?

Obama gets sh*t left right and center from the Democrats for infringing on civil liberties. See Don Draper's post.
