"The right says Obama is a socialist (and they provide PLENTY of proof to back it up). The left said Bush was Satan and/or Hitler.
The right says Obama's legislative proposals should be defeated. The left said Bush should be assassinated. " well let`s see... For that first one, the right actually has called him Satan AND Hitler. For the second one, the right actually has said he should be assassinated.

OldOllie - I thought you might enjoy the findings of this study -
So are liberals smarter [than conservatives]? Kanazawa quotes from two surveys that support the hypothesis that liberals are more intelligent. One is the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health, which is often called Add Health. The other is the General Social Survey (GSS). The Add Health study shows that the mean IQ of adolescents who identify themselves as "very liberal" is 106, compared with a mean IQ of 95 for those calling themselves "very conservative." The Add Health study is huge — more than 20,000 kids — and this difference is highly statistically significant. (See the top 10 scientific discoveries of 2009.)"

OldOllie - You have yet to acknowlege that the right ever does anything wrong, which tells me you have no intention of ever doing so. I can continue giving you examples of the right's smear tactics and general disregard for humanity (protest posters of Obama with a Hitler moustache, Senators calling Obama a liar during his State of the Union address, etc), but the reality is that you are so closed considering another perspective, and I suspect listen only to sources that confirm your views (i.e. - Rush, Fox News), that continuing in this cycle won`t go anywhere. Speaking of sources, I would love to see the research to support that the left is "100 times worse" than the right. Any links like that for me to check out?

Sd, I said I was done, but I'll leave you with this. It`s a matter of scale. For everything someone on the right says, I can show you 10 people on the left saying things that are 10 times worse.
When the right wingers have a protest, they chant and yell and wave signs; then they pick up their trash and go home. When the left wingers have a protest, they tip over cars, throw rocks and bottles at the police, loot stores, and burn buildings.
The right says Obama is a socialist (and they provide PLENTY of proof to back it up). The left said Bush was Satan and/or Hitler.
The right says Obama`s legislative proposals should be defeated. The left said Bush should be assassinated.
You can say the left and right both do it, but if you refuse to see and acknowledge that the left is 100 times worse, you are either cognitively impaired, intellectually dishonest, or delusional (or some combination of the three).
