On Tuesday MSNBC’s “Hardball” host Chris Matthews said that the level of hatred directed against President Barack Obama is greater than it was against any other president, including George W. Bush.
“There is a real level of national hatred of the president [Obama] that I hadn’t seen before, certainly not under Clinton, or under Dubya,” Matthews said on WMAL’s “Morning Majority” broadcast. “The hatred, the Hitler mustaches — I hadn’t seen that before.” (RELATED: Chris Matthews: I never saw left-wingers’ hate-speech signs targeting President Bush [AUDIO])
The Daily Caller rounded up photos from anti-Bush rallies during his two terms in the White House and found some of the worst images from protests around the country.
From swastikas, to bullet holes and a graphic lynching, protesters during the Bush administration were just as vile — if not worse — than some of the Obama haters today.
Maybe this will jog Matthews’ memory.
