re: #472 DaddyG
I think the right and R’s feel an unusual ownership to the Presidency and seem to become unhinged when a Dem. is president. Clinton was attacked from day one, Obama too. I don’t think it is fair to say that the left’s fears were “irrational”—a poorly planned war, initiated with massaged intelligence, a corrupt or politicized DOJ, when rule of law is our very foundation, cronyism and incompetence, letting a city drown—these were all pretty concrete reasons to fear Bush’s presidency.
