Obama Treated Equally?

My take on Ann Coulter’s latest. Her column was published on Townhall.com.

Summary: Compare how Obama has been treated versus how past Presidents were treated. Don’t go back too far. Just look at the chorus of boos that assaulted George W. Bush upon entering the inaugural stage yesterday.

Quote:

Liberals always have to play the victim, acting as if they merely want to bring the nation together in hope and unity in the face of petulant, stick-in-the-mud conservatives. Meanwhile, they are the ones booing, heckling and publicly fantasizing about the assassination of those who disagree with them on policy matters.

My Views: Right on! I like the list of things that they said of Reagan’s Inauguration versus the things being said of Obama’s. Why are the left so mean to people who disagree with them?

As for Mrs. O’s fashion sense, I just have to wonder why no one is pricing those gowns the way they priced Sarah Palin’s?

I just want everyone to be treated equally. But that means that everyone has to BEHAVE equally. Carter wasn’t booed at Reagan’s Inaugural. Why boo Bush at Obama’s Inaugural?

Some of Coulter’s recent essays have struck me as petty but when she gets something right, she hits a bullseye. This really struck a chord with me.


Anybody who is as hated as Ann Coulter is must be doing something right. She is very right-wing but every left-wing blogger would love to write like her. I hate rants; opinion pieces must argue from the facts. Pay attention to how she uses facts and draws politically incorrect connections among them. People would do well to think and not just be outraged.

Here’s her Wiki bio. Her latest book is at the right.
