Nope. Imo, he was treated worse.

Political rancor and hatred as old as politics.
There's nothing unique to any disrespect shown to the current president. Certainly it isn't the color of President Obama's skin that drives the political opposition to his presidency. Yet so many of his supporters can't seem to fathom how their Dear Leader (see what I just did there?) can be so disrespected. It certainly perplexes Obama sycophants like Chris Matthews.
Must be racism, right?
But how, then, could anyone explain the reception to John Kerrys candidacy in 2004, when the Massachusetts patrician fared worse with white voters than did the black kid from Hawaii in his historic campaign four years later?
Kerry, indeed, experienced much the same pattern across ethnic lines as all Democrats do, with big majorities among communities of color88 percent of blacks, 56 percent of Asiansand a pathetic showing among the white majority, losing that group by 17 points to George W. Bush, five points more than Obamas margin of white rejection in 2008. Do liberal true believers suggest that racist voters harbored some secret fear that John Forbes Kerry was African-American?
The racism-explains-it-all theory ignores the true nature of Obamas resounding victory in 2008, which suggests strongly that his racial identity worked to his advantage, not to his detriment. Among white voters, he performed at least as well as other recent Democratic candidates, even drawing four points more, 43 to 39 percent, than good ol boy Bill Clinton did his three-way race in 1992. But it was among blacks, Latinos, and Asians that Obama vastly outperformed his Democratic predecessors, besting their performance by about 10 points with each ethnic group and building enough of a margin to win the presidency. In other words, Obamas status as a barrier-busting nominee and a racial outsider made him no less popular among whites and considerably more popular among everyone else.
Remember when Jonathan Chait criticized Bush for exercising too much?
Death of a President?
Game of Thrones?
The civility of public protests?

I don’t like the white half of Obama. I am not racist.
I don’t know a single anti-Obama person who cannot name specific policies and actions which they despise. My guess is that State Senator Louise Lucas is a racist who won’t aassociate with whites outside of democrat allies and therefore has no idea what anti-Obama people think.
I’m sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we’re Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.
Hillary Raghead Clinton...199o something
Louise Lucas is the racist...!!

Has anyone made a movie killing off obammy yet?
Gee the libs did that to G.W. and the movie makers didn’t even get a visit from the f-ing FBI.
Anyone makes a joke about this “magic negro” and it seems they get an IRS audit at the very least
They didn’t treat Bush this way?!?!!?!
That’s one of the biggest lies I’ve ever heard.
I was pondering this issue this morning and had a bit of an epiphany. I think the defective mental process behind this notion of the resistance to Obama being borne of racism is because the left already regarded conservatives to be racist even before Obama came along. And because they don’t have the ability to see any substantive difference in Obama’s policies and practices vs. his Democratic predecessors means that in their minds (or what passes for minds) the increased resistance to him must be due to racism, because that’s the only thing different they can see. They’re completely oblivious to the increased degree that Obama has exploited race, violated the constitution, etc.
