Unpatriotic is the wrong word. Both Bush and Obama are/were terrible Presidents.
You forgot to bash Romney. :laugh:
Romney will be a terrible President before he was. LOL If you are a Calvinist, look at it this way. Romney was elected before the foundation of the world to lose, will have limited votes due to his total depravity, and run an irresistable race.
I once heard that it was an unwritten rule that presidents don't criticize their predecessors. It is a matter of courtesy and etiquette.
I thought it was tacky that BO showed disdain for Geo. Bush when he took office. I think it is a sign of the impotency of his tenure as well as an indication of his personal character that three plus years later, he continues to do so.
You are correct. Bush made it quite clear before leaving office he was not going to criticize Obama, and he has held to that. Cheney did plenty of it, but I would not call him Mr. Gracious in the first place.
Obama's (as President) criticism of his predecessor is unprecedented, at least in my lifetime.
The only possible exception to that was some of Ford's statemets about Nixon, but they were well deserved. Ford was a man of high character.
Agree about Ford's character. As to his criticism, Nixon was an anomaly because of his resignation; and because of the reason, I don't think it was necessarily unwarranted. Ford needed to rebuild the reputation of the Office.
