I was just recalling another meme of the Bush era that the Republicans seem to have forgotten: During time of war and crisis, it is unpatriotic and unproductive to criticize the president. [Obviously this is hog-wash, but, for once, I'd like to see the Republicans actually stand by what they say.]
Just a few years ago when Ari Fleisher was warning Americans to, "Watch what they do and what they say."
Those good ole days when there was a terrorist and another war just around every corner.
Of course this was just the Republican technique to manipulate the media and divert criticism during the disaster that was the Bush presidency. But luckily for all of us there is a "paper" trail and some of us remember. So, I guess if the Republicans (yet again) do not want to appear to be hypocritical flip-floppers, they should be supporting President Obama during our current time of war and economic crisis.
