Hatred of Bush fueling love for Obama

Looks like I'm not the only one who's had that thought... my lovely wife pointed me to this article on the American Thinker website this morning, which echoes many of the things I said yesterday.
It is no accident that the three most hated recent presidents are all Republican. These campaigns are yet another symptom of the American left's collapse into an ideological stupor characterized by pseudo-religious impulses, division of the world into black and white entities, and the unleashing of emotions beyond any means of rational control. The demonization of Bush -- and Reagan, and Nixon -- is the flip-side of the messianic response to Barack Obama.
Turns out there's an actual political term for the irrational hatred of this single man, George W. Bush... the "Bush Derangement Syndrome", defined as; "the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency — nay — the very existence of George W. Bush".

Could they perhaps add yet another set of "symptoms" for this condition?
"Sufferers may display euphoric feelings at the mention of the name Obama. Such individuals may in a Tourette like fashion utter random words like, "Hope", "Change", or "Renewal", yet are unable to further articulate their feelings related to these words. Tears often accompany these Tourette like outbursts."

    I can't really say you're wrong.

    I'm ecstatic Bush is gone!

    That seems to be the net result of a two-party system. You support either A or B and it is difficult to be rational about the "other side". For myself, I went the opposite way. Up until the US economic crisis, I was generally supportive of the Republicans. The economic crisis generally occurred during the Clinton and Bush Jr presidencies and both parties were to blame. Although McCain demonstrated knowledge of the issue in 2005, I was able to realize that Obama didn't exactly have the biggest shoes to fill as president and his inexperience could hardly result in a worse situation than what the Democrats and Republicans together have allowed to happen.

    You've got the short end of the stick on this one. The whole world, including most Americans, are thrilled to see Bush finished.

    He has been the worst President in the history of the country.

    I'd love to have a two party system. I think that or a system of run-off elections is the only way you truly get democracy. The alternative, is our system, where you can have a huge majority government that really represents as little as a third of the voters (NDP in Ontario, Chretien etc), or worse, you can have a minority government which can be hamstrung and blackmailed by minority parties with no requirement they take any future political responsibility for their demands.

    Obama has definitely gotten an easy ride, if not a free ride because he is half black. Besides the euphoria about his colour from some quarters, most of the MSM and the public were afraid to criticize or question in any way lest they be tarred as racists.
    We will only be truly non-racist, when we can freely criticize and question those of any race.

    "He has been the worst President in the history of the country."

    Bush isn't even the worst living president as long as Carter and Billy Bob Clinton are around.
