Irritates me to no end!!

Ok a disclaimer first.... If you don't like my political views and will get pissy over this post, you may want to leave now and not look any further... I didn't want to make this blog too political but this is going to be my first political post because the hypocracy and double standards pisses me off to no end!

I am sick and tired of people talking about how "awesome" Obama is... Ok you like him so f***ing what! Nobody cared when I liked Bush, in fact I got burned for it more times then one... Yes I know he wasn't one of the best presidents but he DID have out best interests at heart... At least in my opinion... Obama, not so much... Anyway on to what this is about... Again I say (And I have steam coming out my ears right now!!) the hypocrisy and double standard is ridiculous and absolute bullshit (sorry for the language!) Here is an article I just recieved about an outrage over Obama's face being photoshopped in the Joker... Read on and you will find out why I am so angry over this....

Spoof poster of Obama's face painted as The Joker branded 'dangerous and mean-spirited'
By Mail Foreign ServiceLast updated at 2:25 PM on 04th August 2009

A poster depicting Barack Obama as Batman villain The Joker has been called 'mean-spirited and dangerous' by the U.S. President's supporters.

The image, which has been adopted by Mr Obama's critics, shows him wearing the white face paint and smudged red lips of the character most recently played by the late actor Heath Ledger. Beneath the picture reads the word 'socialism'.

Controversy: The poster, which depicts President Barack Obama as Batman villain The Joker has divided U.S. opinion

The creator of the image remains unknown, but the website that first published the image crashed yesterday because so many had been attempting to view it. It has since been spotted in Los Angeles and Atlanta after it appeared in U.S. media.

The right-wing editor of the American Thinker website, Thomas Lifson, wrote today: 'It is starting.
Inspiration: The poster mimics the make-up worn by late actor Heath Ledger in the latest Batman film

'Open mockery of of Barack Obama, as disillusionment sets in with the man, his policies, and the phony image of a race-healing, brilliant, scholarly middle-of-the-roader.'
But the President's supporters have condemned the image, calling it 'mean-spirited and dangerous.'

A spokesman from the Los Angeles urban policy unit said that depicting the president as demonic and a socialist 'goes beyond political spoofery.'

The image comes as the President faces criticism over his plans to create a $1trillion healthcare programme.

Republican chairman Michael Steele first used the word 'socialism' in relation to Mr Obama two weeks ago as he slammed the President's attempts to push Congress into passing the healthcare reforms.

How quickly they forget

Obama-bots are in a tizzy over a silly poster of Dear Leader as The Joker.

The BDS-infected Left may have wiped the violent imagery and assassination fascination targeting the president from their memories.

I haven’t:

As Hillary Clinton famously yelled, “I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic, and we should stand up and say, ‘WE ARE AMERICANS AND WE HAVE A RIGHT TO DEBATE AND DISAGREE WITH ANY ADMINISTRATION!’”

Free speech. It might be the very best thing about America, even when it irks.

Ok so here are links to both the Obama Joker and the Bush Joker.... Now why is it ok to do it to Bush and not Obama???!!!
