    I wish I could post the entire article. I think it describes perfectly what is going on in this country.

    Why All This Drama Over Obama?

    Why Do Republicans and Tea Baggers Hate President Obama?

    I guess more accurately the question should be why do some people hate President Obama? He was elected by a large margin of electoral votes so there are definitely a lot of people who like him. But that said! Why All his Drama Over Obama?

    When he announced he was running for president, the secret service had to start guarding him about six months before they normally start guarding presidential candidates, because of all the death threats he was receiving. So the question is why is that? What had he done that was so bad that they had to start guarding him that early? Did he murder somebody, rape somebody, rob a bank, commit an act of terrorism?

    No he didn't.

    All through the presidential campaign there were people protesting his candidacy, calling him a traitor, a socialist, a communist, a Muslim or an Arab, (which to their minds were all bad things) but none of this was true! But they still persisted in spewing their hatred toward him and were not amenable to reason or the truth.

    They want to de-legitimize his presidency and get him out of office by any means necessary! It was just one thing after another all summer long. Again Why All This Drama Over Obama?

    As shocking as this may seem to some of you, there are some people in this country who just don’t want to see a black man be president of the United States! Or any none white person for that matter. But definitely not a black man! They say this is a white country and should be ruled or governed only by white people, preferably white men.

    To these people (including some in the congress) President Obama can do no good. He could walk on water, bring the dead back to life, wipe out world hunger, bring peace to the world and they’ll find a way to find something wrong with what he did. Because it’s not about what he did. It’s about what he is!

    That’s partly the reason why – conservatives were extremely angry that such a large number of Americans were rejecting the conservative agenda. To prove all those voters were wrong and redeem conservative dogma, Obama not only needed to be defeated but destroyed.

    Remember also that republicans perceive the WH as their birthright, that democrats have ‘no business’ being president. Republicans have no interest in Congress, a venue of negotiations and compromise; as authoritarians, conservatives crave the Imperial Presidency where they can rule unhindered by the need for consensus.

    What liberals reject is the fact that to the majority of conservatives, race makes no difference, policy does. Liberals simply want to make everything about race. That's why they wanted Obama in the first place.

    I never met the man, I don't hate him, I do, however hate the ideals he espouses. If that makes me a racist, then you have a serious problem with reality.

    The hate and lying that has been directed at President Obama is not normal. Come on, people!!! It has nothing to do with his policies. And this issue needs to be recognized. I'm tired of people acting like it doesn't exist.

    If people don't want to be accused of being a racist then shey should not act like one.

    And of course we have many on the right who feel the need to engage in ‘payback’ for GWB, ‘maligned and ridiculed’ for 8 years by the left.

    Actually, I kinda figure Bush pretty much deserves the ridicule. Scary, huh? A conservative who can think for herself. Try it sometime. It's very liberating... and liberty is a very American concept.
