“Yeah, and those people here who did object to it were treated to pleny of why do you hate america? and go back to DU, Soros plant! But I guess now that someone with a different letter next to his name is in the white house its cool to question handing that much power to the government.”
I believe that’s a lot of why conservatism has such a black eye with the general public. The hypocrisy of the Bush years.
That and the almost violent reaction some of us got here during those years for pointing out that building your economy with a nation of mortgage brokers and wedding planners while re-classifying fast food jobs as manufacturing might not be such a great idea. Oh, and we were called a bunch of anti bush, america hating nutters for buying gold at $400/oz and silver at $5/oz. Those threads were a hoot.
