A FEW YEARS AGO, ROOTING THE PRESIDENT TO FAIL USED WAS CALLED TREASON
I suppose it's not surprising, but I'm struck by just how delighted right-wingers are these days when the president of the United States is insulted and embarrassed by a foreign leader. A few years go, wasn't it treasonous to root for the president to fail, especially on foreign policy, and to have schadenfreude when another foreign leader rebuffed him?

Obviously, of course, they don't consider Obama the president of the real America, and, in fact, they probably think of Netanyahu as a more patriotic American. Truthfully, if he could enter the GOP primaries, he'd have a serious chance at winning.
UPDATE: Did I say delighted?
