Why is Obama so hated?

flaca BN-0 2010/09/04 01:42:10
Because he slightly changed healthcare which even republicans have admitted needed some work?

Because he bailed out the car manufacturers, so that GM could go on to be selling a bunch load of cars into China and helping the balance of trade deficit?

Because he didn't use executive order to declare that Iraq war was illegal (which it was) and pull out right away. or that he improved upon the neglected war in Afghanistan (formerly known as 'the forgotten war" under Bush) so that America wouldn't be seen as trigger-happy and short on follow-through?

Such criminal activities. The republicans in congress are strangely quiet about Obama's continuation of the wars. Because they agree with him. No bitchin' in that area (except from dingbat sodaheads who never can see the truth)

Can anyone tell me out of all this what is so heinous. No they can't. Fact is, Bush would have done just the same.
You!

    Here's a really good argument from a conservative about why liberals should not support Obama. He rambles a bit for the first few minutes, but it's really worth it to stick through the whole thing.

    Maybe that he wants to remake the country in the failed mold of radical socialist ideology, and that he's about a pro abortion as a calloused man can be. That's enough reason for me to think he's a dirtbag. He isn't worthy of hate.

    Germany is more socialist than we are, but are far more financially stable, have a much higher percentage of manufacturing per gdp and live well and are better educated overall. So what's so wrong with socialism?

    Germany has been taking steps toward more financial security - belt tightening. Meanwhile we spend money as if it grows on trees and pretend the failed socialist policies of europe will work here. Socialist medicine has not advanced medicine as far as free market medicine.

    I prefer freedom and liberty to socialism, communism, and/or statism.

    Republican leaders actually have a lot in common with Obama for a very good reason Liberals refuse to see but if you look at his voting record is glaringly obvious... he talks like a leftwinger turning the political right against him but his voting record is that of a rightwinger with some Republicans voting for leftwing causes more than Obama has and he never opposed Bush... in fact, most Republicans voted against Bush more than Obama because he never did unless Present counts as no.

    Flaca, I have explained this too you many times and in most cases the things I predict and try to tell you and the leftwingers comes true.

    When Obama was running for the nomination, remember it was the Democrats being called racists, haters and birthers because they brought up the birth certificate issue and other matters for which they were called racists and haters.

    Now explain to me how it is that all these claims of racism and hate disappear just because Obama wins the Democratic nomination and suddenly it's the Republicans who are racists, haters and birthers? Either they were never true and nothing but false political attacks or these people are still racists and haters would you not agree because if winning a nomination suddenly cleanses you of racism and hate then we need more people...

    When he became President, the arrogance of the political left with people like Michael Moore telling Republicans to sit back and let the Democrats take care of everything and Keith Olbermann hammering away every day how Republicans were no longer an issue because Democrats had the votes to do anything they wanted and Republicans couldn't stop them... then Democrats in Washington DC including the President telling Republicans to get on board or get out of the way... so they united against the Democrats and became a rock in the road instead. Then everything began falling apart because the Democrats began warring among themselves. Democrat voters became blind and began using Obama's skin color to defend him about everything so you couldn't even criticize him about unemployment without being attacked as a racist.

    You see that type of behavior and think Republicans are going to offer Democrats support?

    Then the endless self destructive attacks that sent viewers to FOX, that turned Glenn Beck into a news media superstar, going after Palin when if she were let alone she would have faded away, the endless attacks against the Tea Party that turned them into a political powerhouse.

    Flaca, it's not just Obama... it's Democrats as a whole creating resentment and anger. And who is the recognized leader of the Democrats right now? Barack Obama!! Some Democrats say he's not the Democrats President... he's everybody's President. So why is it then that any time he tries to do anything like toss the public option to reunite the Democrats and bring the Blue Dogs back in who were getting ticked about all the fallout about being Conservatives? It wasn't the Republicans... it was never the Republicans because for as arrogant as Democrats became, it was the truth that Democrats did not need Republicans if they stood united!

    Then there are the Independents and Moderates, Centrists like myself who are trying to get you to look at Obama's voting record almost begging you to open your eyes because when you see he's a flippin Bush Democrat who voted for Bush more than most Republicans did and that some Republicans supported Democrats more often than Obama when Bush was President... it might just wake you up that Obama is one of the biggest con artists in US history and not even a very good one because he votes for Republican issues but can't speak Conservative so that his Liberal / Socialist / Progressive speeches to keep Liberals happy turn Republicans against him.

    I have the same issue with Republicans where I say LOOK AT THE MAN'S VOTING RECORD and point out how he never opposed Bush and they still oppose him. He completes this massive deal with Big Oil that gives Republicans what they want and Republicans are fighting to protect offshore oil drilling... where's the conflict??? Cap & Trade. In a previous Presidential address, even Liberals came out criticizing Obama saying it sounded like he was using the BP oil disaster to promote Cap & Trade meaning LIBERALS SAW EXACTLY WHY REPUBLICANS OPPOSE OBAMA because he is a scheming manipulator and so bad at it that he truly is transparent... not because he's open with nothing to hide as we all know he lied about that, he's transparent because he's so bad at political mind games you can see he's trying to trick and manipulate you.

    And then there are the Progressives. You guys say if Obama tosses the public option you will not support his healthcare plan because it cannot work without the public option... then he tosses it anyway and you continue supporting it for the ideal of universal healthcare even if you yourselves said it cannot be done unless the public option were part of the healthcare plan. Are Liberals all liars or are you so controlled by Progressives that when he tossed the public option you fell back on your Progressive ideological beliefs and began supporting a plan you yourselves said cannot work now entirely for the ideal of universal healthcare rather than if universal healthcare can even be achieved... the ideal is more important than the actuality of what can be done or achieved which is why so much Progressive legislation backfires.

    The road to Hell is paved with good intentions and Progressives have been laying a lot of pavement stones in this country!

    That's not to exempt Republicans and Neocons but it's like all this blame Bush bs as Bush was not a dictator and what he achieved was accomplished because of those who voted for and supported his legislation... and Obama voted for him every time other than when voting present.

    As Penn says in Disko Pickles video, you think Obama is flawless and ohhh so good but the power he wields now will be passed on to whomever succeeds him. Now let's say John McCain runs again and this time wins... do you really want a man like McCain to have all this power Obama possesses? If Obama were truly such a good, noble and intelligent man then trim back the power of the executive office beginning with legislation that stops the President from making ANY deals where Congress and the Senate do not get to vote on the legislation. Create legislation to simplify legislation and force our leaders to do their job and actually VOTE FOR THE DAMN LEGISLATION instead of rubber stamping it like the Senate did after Caesar became dictator!

    These problems are not all of Obama's making. He didn't cause the BP oil rig disaster, but he did practically make BP a wing of the government with authority over local state and federal government and NO PRIVATE CORPORATION SHOULD HAVE ANY CONTROL OVER FEDERAL STATE OR LOCAL AUTHORITIES there to protect the people of the United States! Now we have our second oil rig explosion which is two in less than half a year when there had been no such disasters at all in over fifty years??? And you can't cry terrorism or even ask because then you're a racist hater either against Obama or against Muslims when this sort of thing is just so unexplainable it demands to be looked at as a possible terrorist act even if to prove it wasn't.

    Why do people hate Obama flaca... maybe because Democrats treated Bush even worse and just like he is a continuation of Bush instead of change... the opposition is a continuation of where Democrats left off with the other side getting their chance to be the bad guys to the party in power because everything's still going horribly wrong!

    Read what you just wrote flaca... you finally get what I have been saying to you because Bush would do the exact same thing and the problem is you see only the good things Obama does that follow in Bush's footsteps... and you refuse to see the bad things he does which are also a continuation of Bush.

    You answered your own question and when you truly understand your answer... then you'll understand why the opposition stands against Obama.

    Obama was hated before he had even stepped into the White House and had said a word. I'd like to believe it has to do with his decisions. Unfortunately, with racism on the rise, I have a bad feeling having a black father is really behind this. Just read some of the comments by conservative people on this website and some of the pictures they post.

    So answer this Wow. During the nomination process it was his fellow Democrats being accused of racism, hate and being birthers with Phil Berg leading the way with lawsuits about Obama's birth certificate. Then when he wins... all that racism hate and accusations of being birthers disappears and suddenly it's the Republicans on the full receiving end.

    Does racism and hate vanish just because your candidate wins a nomination? No it doesn't does it meaning either all the accusations were false or these people are still racists and haters but Obama's supporters don't want to talk about it unless Conservative Democrats dare oppose Obama on anything and then they become racists and haters too.

    You say racism is on the rise? What if it's all media hype?

    You say no? Look at the SPLC. Last year they released a list of 75 rightwing terrorist acts. In it they included cases almost every source had concluded never even happened involving a derailed train where pieces of paper declaring a racist group called Sons of the Gestapo (if I remember) which did not exist... it was a failed train robbery.

Some of the terrorist acts no one ever determined any motives for, some were just horrible crimes committed by people on the political right no different than similar crimes committed by people on the political left and to top it off they included a man with a long history of fighting white supremist groups to the point he hired hitmen to kill nazi's all because he tried to blow up a mosque... he was Jewish and that's all they needed to declare it a rightwing terrorist act even though he was an extreme leftwinger. The truth is the SPLC doesn't research any of their data and just compile it. Someone probably spent two hours searching Google using Rightwing Terror and wrote dow what popped up first without checking them.

    Remember that 3,000% increase in the militia's activity and membership growth earlier this year that they made? Do you recall seeing these people or even the media focusing on this growth? A 3,000% increase should have these guys about almost everywhere shouldn't it and yet almost no one noticed any increase of militia activity at all. They also said this militia activity was racism against Obama and these groups emerged after Obama got elected. Then the Michigan militia group got busted and guess what? They formed in August 2008 and it was then revealed most if not almost all these militia groups formed under Bush with most forming before Obama won the Democratic Partys nomination and even before he announced he would run. All lies yet again.

    Now they're trying to get back into the scene again trying to portray a rise in racism against Muslims because a New York cab driver was attacked by a man named Michael Enright who had just got back from a tour of duty in Afghanistan and was so drunk that after he committed the act he could barely run two blocks before passing out drunk on the sidewalk. Police found him incoherent and barely able to stand. What's strange here is that Enright supports the building of the mosque while the Muslim cabbie opposes it. Enright is part of an interfaith group trying to find brotherhood between the various religions and no one reported any hate ever from Enright towards Muslims. While everyones crying racism, no one's asking if he might suffer from post traumatic stress syndrome even though he was immediately taken for a psychiatric examination by law enforcement. So here we have a man possibly suffering from a mild case of post traumatic stress and being as drunk as he was, he lost control. The cab driver says Enright greeted him well enough, then after driving a bit shouted something in Muslim and then said "Consider This A Checkpoint" before pulling the knife. Does this sound like normal behavior? He was too drunk to have planned this, it literally went against everything the man believed in before he went to war and he's telling the guy this is his last checkpoint almost as if he were thinking he were back in Afghanistan. But rather than bring up any of these facts, the SPLC uses this to start a campaign about rightwing hate against Muslims and is again being caught reporting false stories in relation to it.

    Is racism really on the rise? Or is it all just media induced hysteria helped along by groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center established by a documented con man named Morris Dees.

    Because he's an inexperienced man who never had a real job, never ran a business, doesn't listen to the American people, and is out of touch with Americans in general. His supposed transparency has been a total joke and the only reason he sounds so good is because of the teleprompter. He'd do much better if he spoke from the heart instead or reading what's in front of him, without the teleprompter he'd be lost.

    never had a real job?'

    Worked as a community organizer and while you spit at that, that is actually an extremely difficult job, stressful and certainly no one goes into that for the pay, they do it to make a positive difference in peoples lives. Then, he went to Harvard Law, graduated Magna Cum Laude, (can you do that?) Was the first black student to be named President of the Harvard Law Review... (could you have done that?) worked as a civil rights attorney,.. I believe that is also a "real job", and also as a law professor, another real job, (oh MY! He was working 2 jobs at once!) Then he was a state senator and then a US senator, and now the President of the United States.

    And Palin did what? 5 or 6 junior colleges? to get an AA degree in journalism? Mayor of Wasilla.. population, what? 5,400? whoooooo Hoooo! Hey brag on THAT! And a huge percentage of that is still drug filled. Then what, ohhhh she won the Gov position in a state that is 85% GOP!!!!!!!!! tough job there, since we all know now the intelligence of the average RWNJ... and what... oh, here goes... she even quit that job!

Did none bring Palin up and what gives you the right to do to Palin what you got ticked off about none doing to Obama.

    Even Chris Matthews is now going after Obama about his teleprompter because Obama even brings the damn thing to private meetings with people as if he is incapable of thinking for himself as without it he becomes a stuttering fool. Give Palin a teleprompter and write everything she has to say for her and she'll be just as intelligent as Obama, but if the teleprompter crashes at least she doesn't start stammering like someone so nervous when you ask them their name it takes them five minutes to spit it out... plus, she doesn't mind writing on her hand if she needs a fallback.

    I don't like Palin and I think she's an airhead which about half the Republicans agree with... but you keep attacking her like this for no reason and it will have the same effect as what happened to FOX, Glenn Beck and the political right with all these unfair attacks and YOU will put Palin in the White House because when you do this to the political right it backfires on you.

    I thought he was a lawyer, and also took a job working in a community when it's said that with his degrees he had offers from several lawfirms initially that he turned down for a lower salary doing what he wanted to. Factcheck and Politico did a runthrough of the transparency and several journalists have listed areas where there is more transparency before.
