    Why do you think democrats never question Obama?

    I won't even go as far to say criticize Obama, I'm just asking why they never even question him.

    I don't think it's just because he's a democrat, I think Clinton got a lot criticism from within for his screw ups.

    Is it because he's black and questioning him would be "racist?" Is it because he sounds cool, almost like MLK Jr when giving speeches? Just great Hope and Change propaganda? Is it because they hated Bush so much they're happy to have anyone with in a D in office regardless of the outcome?

    To be honest though, I didn't see a lot of criticism or questioning from republicans at Bush in his 1st term. But to his supporters credit he was either abandoned, heavily criticized or at bare minimum questioned a lot. Do you think if Obama's next 4 years are the same or worse level of disaster his first 4 were do you think they'll begin to question him? Or will it remain unwavering, undaunted love and support?

    Obviously there's going to be some angry Obama supporters on this thread if it gets any legs, but let's try to keep the discussion on topic.

    It is nothing more than a war because of envy... and greed

    Envy because they equate ones other than DEMs to be higher earners... they want to be higher earners, or they just want more of a slice of the 'good life'... Obamalama's rhetoric is rife with class warfare.. it is designed to rile up hatred focused at the opposition so that there is no realistic analysis of the dear leader himself...

    this is a result of a very carefully calculated gameplan

    I think that's part of it, but Al Gore is every bit as rich as Romney and they worship him as well.

    When you bring up all his mansions, private jets, and luggage-delivering limos they just shrug their shoulders.

    I don't understand dem's not questioning obama either. I don't understand how dem's could want big gov't and conrol of all citizens lives and finances. I don't unerstand anyone that can't see their own lives and all citizens lives are being ruined by this muslim in our white house. I just don't understand how anyone could support the things obama has done and still doing to our lives and country.

    I'm sure many Obama supporters are livid he hasn't declared martial law, suspended habeas corpus and sent all the conservatives off to re-education camps.

    Because much of the same rhetoric is used to divert focus away... you see it is not about the DEM leader who promises to keep up with the class warfare (while protecting themselves)... it is all about the 'opposition' no matter how similar you are to the opposition

    For most of them the adulation will never stop, it's easier than thinking...

    So you think if the next 4 are as bad as the first 4, the lack of simply questioning Obama will remain?

    He's their guy and they think he's wonderful.

    He's a disaster as POTUS. Anyone with half a brain cell can see that but anyone who adores the guy doesn't care.

    He's their guy. Good or bad and they will support his sorry incompetant ass no matter what.

    There is more and more criticism of Obama, from his party, lately.
    Of course you still have Tingle Matthews drooling over him, but he doesn't really count.

    I don't know why Democrats are intrinsically more likely to stick together on all subjects. There is a rare voice of reason that floats to the top, but as a rule they toe the line and do not like to let others in.
    (I didn't use to feel that way, but I've been taught that by our most recent Dem-Majority and by a President that promised to open the aisles)

    Early on the "race card" tried to get played but it's lost it's sting for everyone because of it's overuse.

    :cool:
