Wyndahoi saidYou know, the writer of this article lumps everyone together who dislikes Obama into one group of racists, bigoted assholes.
There are some of us who are opposed to Obama because of the issues. I personally do not listen to Rush Limbaugh or watch Fox News. I think Obama is bad for this country because he tramples on civil liberties.
And yes, I had the same vociferous complaints about GWB when he was in power.
Many on the right demonize people they disagree with. But you know what? So do liberals. If we keep demonizing everyone else then pretty soon this country will split itself apart.
P.S. Getting all of your news from only liberal sources (msnbc, dailykos, huffingtonpost, etc.) isn't much better from a steady diet of conservative drek.
A vast (and I do mean VAST) majority of those that hate Barack Obama is because of the man's skin color. That in and of itself is the underlying reason for all the hatred, and yeah....they are racist and bigoted assholes to boot.
You say Barack Obama "tramples on civil liberties?" If you are speaking of Executive Orders, please review the following table provided in this link:
If you will notice, Barack Obama has issued 182 Executive Orders (through June 20, 2014), whereas the Republican hero, George W. Bush, issued a mere 291. So why all the bitching, moaning and threats of lawsuits against the President when the potato-head that Republicans wanted in the White House FOREVER, issued more? Where is the logic in all that? You say you had the same gripes against GWB, however, was your voice as loud against him as it likely is now? Maybe, maybe not.
The differences are of quality, not quantity. Bush may have issued more EOs, but Obama's have been more audacious and sweeping.
In any case, yeah, everyone "hates" Obama. Fuck that. I could have a beer with the guy (or smoke a joint, w/e), and we've have fun.
Although, I'd rather tie him to a chair and make him listen to me recite Wealth of Nations
to him in its entirety.
He's a fuckup.
His crowning moment of fuckuppery: When he asserted that ATMs and airport kiosks represent "structural issues in our economy" which have eliminated jobs. (Interview with noted idiot Ann Curry.)
May sound like a little thing, but its actually monumental idiocy: How he could say something like that and believe it that boggles the mind.
I hate his stupidity.
