    I don't think you would be seeing this harsh backlash if the Republicans had presented a decent candidate, someone like Colin Powell, to represent them in the Presidential election. I think people are upset because now our President is reality TV trash. We may as well have elected a Kardashian, they have just as much experience as Trump, and possibly even a few more brains.

    See parents.
    THIS is what happens when your babies get a trophy for PARTICIPATION in an event.
    When they don't get their way, they don't know how to react to losing.

    Are you actually comparing vandalism and destruction of property (which is totally illegal) to political debate/discourse which is totally legal and consistent with the Constitution)?

    Wow. with a well thought out comment like yours, I'm amazed that you are signed in under an alias. (sarcasm).

    Was it violent liberals or Mitt Romney that perpetrated this act?

    Running around tearing up people's property. Burning American flags while waving Mexican flags, destroying cars and property, blocking interstates, smashing windows, etc.

    You do understand there is a difference between legitimate political moves and protests don't you? How many people were drug out of cars and beaten for because of a supreme court nominee? How many peoples property was destroyed because one person heckled Obama?

    When Obama was elected how many people took to the streets to protest his election? Answer: None.

    You are not comparing protests, you are comparing political moves with protests.

    With the exception of "SC congressman heckled Obama at a State of the Union address", that is the job of congress if it disagrees with the executive branch. It is not their job to rubber stamp Obamas policies.

    So, toleration is only applicable when liberals are in charge? The election of Donald Trump was in large part a protest vote against eight years of the Obama Administration and a bias media. Trump only has to do one thing successful to accomplish more than the Obama Administration.
