    There are plenty things that people could find Obama not doing a good job in.So why do so many on this forum and other places have to lie, exaggerate, and make shit up about Obama? Why call him socialist, marxist, the "messiah", "owebama", claim he isn't a US citizen, claims he want to destroy america? or claim things done by other people is really Obama's doing, and anything that goes on in the gov't or military is under Obama's direction?

    YOu totally discredit any point you may have when you resort to such Glenn Beck/Rush type absurd attacks and arguments. You just look like some stupid, childish, partisan hack nutjob when you do so.

    Not specifically, but there is a ton of the people that dislike Obama resort to what I mentioned, and frankly I don't know what they get out of it except looking like delusional hacks. It's just so stupid.

    I agree. Many Republicans are just angry because they lost national elections in 2006 and 2008. Rather than admitting they screwed up and changing for the better, it's easier to make up crap about Obama. Obama, Pelosi and Reid are doing a bang-up job screwing up all on their own. There's no need to make stuff up.

    I don't think anyone would argue that its far easier to take an ad hominem approach than it is to actually engage in reasoned debate.

    I don't know him personally, so I can't say if I like him or not. My liking someone personally does not depend on their political views.

    But I DO know that I don't like his policies and rhetoric.

    I don't like his use of the english language as a tool to say one thing but lead people to believe another...and then when he is approcahed with the contradiction, he reminds people of what he said..and clarifies it...making himself right everytime.

    It is the role of a public speaker to ensure the listener understands exactly what he means when he speaks. Obama uses words to do the opposite.
    One of Gibbs' most used lines is "that is not what he said...I have the transcript...look at the transcript"

    Likewise, I do not appreciate his constant berating of American businesses and his implication that the wealthy are wealthy due to greed and dihonest business practices.

    Finally, his policies, like them or not, are class divisive. He claimed tpo be a uniter yet he is proving to be a divider.
