When did the Constitution change?

I want to know something. For the past 7 years I have heard a whole lot of people complaining about Bush. They didn't like his policies, etc. And I never really got that upset about it, even though I liked many of his policies, because the fact that we have a say in our government is one of the things that makes this country great.

But now, we've had another election, and evidently Republicans are supposed to sit quietly by and not say a word? So why are our rights different than the Democrats for the last seven years? We should not voice our fears and opinions this time. . . WHY?

  • both sides are giving the other what they have gotten the past 8 years. dems are telling repubs to "get over it" b/c thats what they were told when they complained about Bush. and repubs are whining & complaining b/c thats what they had to deal with from the dems complaining about Bush.

    its a vicious cycle & its nothing new. all thats changed is that there are several 24/7 news stations that feed off of it.

  • quietly? please... and as a democrat even though I was disgusted with the fact that the majority of usa citizens did not vote for bush but for gore, I still gave bush a chance I did not critize him unti well into his first term. however republicans were critizing Obama before he even took office. BIG difference

  • I know that. And for some reason they are being told to stop. On Cafemom and in the government itself. . .
    It's our right to question the powers that be!

  • It is because there is a double standard in place. One set of rules applies to the Republicans. Another set applies to the Democrats. Ever notice that no Democrat ever resigns because of ethical violations, but the second a Republican comes under scrutiny, he's toast? Two sets of rules, pure and simple.

  • You can criticize all you want - you can yell and scream and fight and moan and faint..............

    I'm still smiling.

    My party won, my pick won, and I am happy.

    It's amazing that people are still so very, very bitter.

  • Wimsey, I'm not bitter about you winning.

    Did you see the question earlier about "thanking all the people that voted for Bush?" I just want to know why each side thinks the other should be quiet. . . when THEIR President is in office. . .

  • In answer to the title of your post, When Did The Constitution Change? It didn't CHANGE. They flushed the damn thing down the toilet. The United States isn't using that OLD thing anymore.
