The Hypocrisy of US Politics

When there is a changing of the guard in the Executive branch of the US federal government from Republican to Democrat or vice versa, all the hypocrisy that has been harbored comes pouring out. What was defended and championed when Obama did it becomes ugly and vilified with Trump. Same thing happened with Bush. The exact things Bush was criticized for were overlooked with Obama. That is the inherent cognitive dissonance and, frankly, stupidity of political partisanship.

Just the most recent example: A few months back when Trump hinted that he would not accept the results of the election if Hillary won, he and his supporters were widely criticized for that. It was said that he did not respect democracy, that he did not respect the seriousness of government office, etc.

So what happens when he wins?
