    Why do some people loathe Obama? I mean I like the guy. I did not vote for him twice...because of principles (I know...it's quaint), but whenever I see, read or hear criticisms of Obama they are soooooooooo reminiscent of some of the whacked-out shit I heard, saw and read about "W".

    For most rational and intelligent people...Elections are one thing, politics another and governing yet another. Rational and intelligent beings see the nuances involved when ever the things collide, but the shit I see here is getting more pathetic as time goes by. What ever will 2010 look like? We will have another idiotic moronic electorate going out to vote armed with talking points and alarmist and hysterical opinions based on bs?

    I fear for the republic. I truly do.
    :cool:

    Speak for yourself, noose.

    *Most* people vote issues and ablity, not skin color.

    Just because *you* voted for Obama based on his skin color, doesn't mean the reat of us loathe him because of his skin color.

    We loathe him because he is systematically destroying the USofA.

    Good post and especially the last sentence, but the truth of the matter is as I see it, that it doesn't matter if it were Obama, McCain, Hillary Clinton, Huckabee or who the hell ever would take the position, whoever it is would be doing pretty much the same thing as President Obama is doing today.

    As for me about the President, when I first heard his name thrown in the ring and after the first glimpses of him, I thought, "now there is a man that I can support for President". But as time went on, I began to realize he was just one of the good ole Washington Boys and no different from the rest of them.

    It is NOT just him, that is destroying America, it is the people whom we have all elected (and continue to elect) into office time and time and time again. It is not just that one man or his party. It is the entire lot of them and much of the blame is our own because we continue to allow the corruption to run rampant in Washington.

    During the election and prior, I kept saying he was likeable, and I hoped he wasn't lying.

    He was lying. Now I despise him.

    Who loathes Obama? When have you heard the kind of petty carping criticism of Obama you used to hear about Bush?
    No, we all loathe his policies, which are destructive to this country. We loathe his political choices for the same reason. No one on the right has called for his assasination, unlike the left with Bush. We all want him neutered at the polls and gone to well deserved disgrace.

    On the bright side, Jimmy Carter will no longer be remembered as the worst president in US history.

    Obama has proven to be an inept POTUS and unable to get any of his agenda passed yet he is, "systematically destroying America."

    :rolleyes:
