Said quote requires significant assumptions to suggest he's labeling "half of america" as that...similar type of assumptions people use to suggest that George Bush stated that anyone who disagreed with his stance on the War on Terror was "against [america]". Similarly, suggesting that "half of america's" views on things are "much that isn't so" is hardly a grant instance of united as opposed to insulting either.
Obama's quote was directed against Americans who disagree with his stance on AGW an the term "flat earth society" can be considered nothing other than an insulting derogatory term. Bush's " with us or against us" quote was directed at other nations and even then did no name calling. Care to try again or was that your best shot?
