Funny how the Obama haters can't say exactly why they hate him

Is it the 15 cent Christmas tree tax?

I don't think so.

Hate for Obama is something they can't explain by anything Obama has done or not done.

Just they hate him because... well, you know.

    he came to power with zero background, as if chosen by some devine power.

    his followers allow him free run, giving blind obedience.

    those who oppose him or his system are demonized with great effort.

    he shows no reverence for the laws of man

    his words and actions bring warmth to his followers, while his words and actions bring fear and anger to his opposers.

    he operates above any oversight.

    Are we talking about Bush or Obama here? Why do you see Obama as evil incarnate and not Bush, they are really pretty hard to tell apart as presidents, other than Obama not starting any wars yet.

    Bap33 says

    I do not hate Lord Barry. Lord Barry is simply the man

    Seriously Bap, you need to stop listening to Glenn Beck. The guy is poisoning your mind. He's the Jim Cramer of politics.

    Bap33 says

    the figure head of the movement/ideals/principality that is against traditional American culture, values and beliefs as found on Leave it to Beaver, Fozie, George Lopez, Karate Kid, Full House, Family Matters and Cosby Show.

    America was founded in 1776, not the 1950s. Furthermore, America's foundation, although an improvement over the feudalism and monarchies, was hardly a perfect society. There were many injustices including slavery, object poverty, child labor, racism, sexism, and nationalism. American's history is a series of struggles to right those wrongs and others while battling those who would return to those injustices.

    And those injustices all have one thing in common: one group of people having control over another group of people.

    The 1950s were no utopia. It was the height of McCarthyism. The KKK ran uncheck. And the federal government was providing sanctuary to Nazi war criminals in order to get an edge over the Soviets in rocketry. Meanwhile, the threat of nuclear annihilation was a constant fear.

    From the shows you listed, I an only surmise that the goal you with to accomplish is a sexless society. This simply isn't going to happen. And the Republicans and social conservatives aren't going to decrease the amount of premarital sex no matter what they do. Just rent any Girls Gone Wild video. Notice that all the girls have red state accents. That's not a coincident. You'll never see an MIT, UC Berkley, or Harvard coed showing her titties on GGW.

    Christian fundamentalism took off as a way to keep girls and women from having sex. It has completely and utterly failed to do so. It turns out that the more educated a woman is, the likely she is to appear on GGW. So, instead of trying to replace evolution with bible studies, you should be doing the opposite if you want there to be less promiscuity.

    Ultimately as long as birth control exists, there will be promiscuity. And no politician is going to get birth controlled banned no matter how much he/she wants to. The demand for birth control is simply too great that our society isn't going to let the government take it away no matter what.

    However, it's really sad that people still obsess over promiscuity when there are so many other, far more important issues to deal with. Issues like genocide, war, energy independence, pollution, rising sea levels, the income gap, counter-progressive taxation, America's brain drain, fraudulent banking, an unstable financial sector built on fraud and speculation, deteriorating and obsolete infrastructure, etc.

    So stop trying to use government to force people into chastity. It won't work. It has never worked. It will never work. And that's not what government is for. As long as you try to use government for this purpose, it cannot function effectively at dealing with the problems that it should address.

    That's just it. The difference between Bush and Obama is purely cultural. Their economics are pretty much the same.

    We just love fighting the same old culture wars over Gays, Guns, n' God.

    Both Bush and Obama have done the same evil things: tortured, murdered unarmed civilians, falsely imprisoned people with no access to the courts, etc.

    However, I have a conjecture on why Bap and other social conservatives hate Obama but not Bush. Since Obama is a Democrat, he represents sexual freedom, and to a social conservative two consenting adults having premarital sex is a greater evil than torture and murder.

    This is a really fucked up value system, but it seems consistent with the political stances of social conservatives.

    Dan8267 says

    The USA Patriot Act could be used to suspend elections in an emergency, where emergency is defined at the sole discretion of the president. Pretty much, the president can do anything under the USA Patriot Act.
    Of course, Republicans are mostly responsible for that act.

    Finally blame where blame is due.
    But how can we not blame a Current Liberal administration for NOT abolishing the Patriot Act and much of its ominous consequences?

    What do you think History will have to say about Obama, if the next administration takes Patriot Act even a step further, to where we have Gustopos like the KGB rounding folks like you and I up, for even posting in this thread?

    History probably would not view it well, but not as bad as first instituting the the Patriot Act in the first place.

    And, this would probably be viewed by History even worse than the writing of the Act in the first place.

    The question here would be, who is more likely to take the Patriot Act further?

    I do blame Obama for the Patriot Act. I just also blame Republicans because far more of them than Democrats voted for that act. And the vast majority of those who voted against the evil Patriot Act were Democrats and Independents.

    As for Obama, I never supported him because he voted to extend the Patriot while he was a senator. I also didn't support Hilary because as senator she voted for the Patriot Act. But are you telling me that Santorum, Newt, or Romney are against the Patriot Act? Ron Paul is the only Republican candidate who is against that act and the Republicans have always broadsided him.

    That is the nightmare scenario that those of us against the Patriot Act, the NDAA, the TSA and all other forms of executive unchecked power and human rights abuse have.

    In the short term, tyrants are always portrayed in a positive light. In the long run, Bush and Obama will go down as the axis of evil.

    And unfortunately I can't say that Obama won't, especially in a second term when he doesn't have to worry about re-election.

    And unfortunately our press is composed of incompetent idiots who completely ignore these issues including the recent announcement that due process does not mean judicial process. Due process now means whatever the government wants to do.

    Yeah, that is why I did not phrase it as a rhetorical question.

    That said, I think that given their history a Democrat President -- with the propensity to do nothing other than maintain the status quo -- is less likely to push the Patriot Act to the nightmare scenario.

    I think in the long run whoever actually enacts the nightmare scenario will be the one viewed as the major player in the axis of evil. Bush will just be the guy that got the ball rolling and Obama will be the one who stood by and did nothing.

    What's so terrible about the Patriot Act? I really am ignorant about it.

    I just know it's a "boogeyman" for the Left. Sort of like how "socialism" is a boogeyman on the Right.

    My only point is that none of the prior administrations had gone to the extreme level of evil that the current and past one did.

    And I disagree. We've had internment camps, forced relocations, murder of student protestors, you name. it.

    Yes, I think putting American citizens found on american soil in detention camps and murdering student protestors is worse than putting american citizens found on foreign soil and murdering people with links to terrorist organizations.

    Therefore, you are incorrect in concluding that this level of evil is necessary to combat terrorism or ensure national security. Your statement is empirically false.

    I don't believe I drew that conclusion. The conclusion I drew is that any President who is capable of obtaining the office would do it.

    Kennedy and Eisenhower certainly would not. And as for Carter, not killing innocents hardly makes one a pussy.

    That's a pretty bold assumption. Circumstances were radically different, and both of those men had plenty of guilt to take to their graves.

    Then the Constitution shouldn't be suspended during this period of indefinite war.

    Good thing it hasn't been, then.

    I certainly believe that we've been stretching the limits of the constitution, but I also don't think it's up to anyone who's not on the Supreme Court to decide what's valid and what isn't. The constitution is only as strong as the will of the people to support it.

    Gitmo,

    Different from WWII internment camps in what way?

    the suspension of Habeas Corpus,

    The Civil War (and during reconstruction), WWII, and after the Oklahoma City Bombing.

    government stating that assassination of U.S. citizens is legal are all new in American history.

    I'll grant that one. They certainly never *said* it before.

    And there you are wrong. There are no fewer than 1 million Americans who would have done a better and more ethical job than Obama, and that's an extremely conservative estimate.

    And exactly zero of them have any chance of being President of the United States of America.

    Except Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich, and Ralph Nadar. And if people voted for these two instead of all the assholes, there would be more people like them in office.

    Sorry, I should have said "any serious candidate". Nobody who says that they're NOT going to murder "terrorists" will not get elected President.

    Electing people like Elizabeth Warren and William Black would help a lot too.

    Not unless you can get a few hundred of them elected. You won't, though, because most Americans support people who want to kill brown folks.

    And on that, we agree. Well, except that I don't believe "we're" respecting the Constitution on American soil.

    I don't agree. While there has definitely been a lot of questionable activities (patriot act, wiretapping, etc.) so far I haven't seen anything that is clearly a violation of the constitution.

    Now, I definitely believe that these activities *should* be a violation of the constitution, but I also believe that the constitution is fundamentally broken and we need a convention.

    The Japanese interment camps were bad and so was the Kent State massacre, but there's a big escalation when the government starts to premeditate about who it's going to kill. It's a whole new level of evil not seen since slavery.

    Kevin says

    is worse than putting american citizens found on foreign soil and murdering people with links to terrorist organizations.

    First, don't consider yourself safe because you are on American soil. They can always move you off American soil or just ignore that constraint without legal ramification. Second, everyone including you is linked to a terrorist organization if some bureaucrat decides you are. All it takes for you personally to be consider a terrorist is some asshole in TSA putting your name on a list because he doesn't like you or some idiot making a typo while entering a social security number.

    Bolder than concluding that anyone capable of being elected would resort to torture and murder without rule of law?

    Your point? Evil has existed in the past. Therefore, we should not attempt to stop evil or at least prevent it from increasing. After all, any harm that isn't unique is not worth fighting.

    Kevin says

    government stating that assassination of U.S. citizens is legal are all new in American history.

    I'll grant that one. They certainly never *said* it before.

    There's a huge difference in risk between a state in which some government officials break the law and don't get caught and a state where government officials cannot break the law because whatever they do is the law.

    Kevin says

    And you calculated this how?

    Kevin says

    Sorry, I should have said "any serious candidate". Nobody who says that they're NOT going to murder "terrorists" will not get elected President.

    You must think the American public is more cowardly than I do. Sure, 1/3rd of Americans are cowards who shit their pants at the site of a Muslim. But that leaves 2/3rds to vote more rationally. We're not all Republicans.

    Kevin says

    Electing people like Elizabeth Warren and William Black would help a lot too.

    Not unless you can get a few hundred of them elected. You won't, though, because most Americans support people who want to kill brown folks.

    A single, truly good presidency could change this country for the better as dramatically as the Bush/Obama reign have changed it for the worse.

    Kevin says

    I don't agree. While there has definitely been a lot of questionable activities (patriot act, wiretapping, etc.) so far I haven't seen anything that is clearly a violation of the constitution.

    Then you and I have vastly different standards for upholding the Constitution. The warrantless recording of telephone conversations and Internet traffic of tens of millions if not hundreds of millions of U.S. citizens. The arrest of people video recording the police. The illegal mass arrest of hundreds of people for being in the same location. There are plenty of examples.

    Kevin says

    I also believe that the constitution is fundamentally broken and we need a convention.

    On that we agree. The Constitution needs to be rewritten, but not by those in power now. It needs to be modernized to protect the public from all the abuses of government that have come into play over the past 100 years, and particularly over the past 12.

    Sorry Dan, you're still not going to convince me that Pre-Bush governments were meaningfully better than post-Bush. I think I provided plenty of evidence that almost all of the evils of the recent administrations are not new, and go all the way back to the founding of the republic. Torture, communication interception, and detention without charge all have a long and rich history.

    It's absolutely true that these are evil things, but they're not new things, and the simple fact is that they will continue to happen as long as large percentages of the voting public approve of the tactics. When people finally decide that they want their rights back, people who won't do these things will get elected.

    Definitely Abe! It matter not, which side of the coin you vote for, you'll still get the same coin. Liberty and Justice are both teetering on the edge now.

    I would not decry 50 thousand people who are smart enough to know robotic government jobs make for stable employment though.

    But yeah, you work for our government, and you learn to keep your mouth shut real quick. Some government employees still have unions, but those are being eradicated as we speak, funny, hitler did that as well. Actually, lol, he talked them all into one union first, then just got rid of the one.

    I don't see the right-wing as being exceptionally hateful towards Obama.

    If I harken back to Clinton days when I was a Republican, some pretty vicious attacks and incessant harsh language were around then too. Everything Clinton did was about building a New World Order ending with black helicopters and ATF rounding up the righteous for reeducation camps. I'm ashamed to say I was hoodwinked by this stuff myself. I vividly recall now trying to explain to my misguided "libtard" friends how IMPORTANT it was to impeach Bill Clinton over his blowjob indiscretion, as it symbolized his lying nature and was a real crime because there was lying under oath & coverups going on. Oh for simpler times....

    Obama being black and "foreignish" adds a lot of spice and kicks things up a notch or two is all. I'd add to that they are burned about being out of power after so long in power, it don't sit right. Much like Viserys in Game of Thrones the ONLY goal is bringing low The Pretender and the end justifies all means.

    Viserys Targaryen: "We go home with an army. With Khal Drogo's army. I would let his whole tribe fuck you - all forty thousand men - and their horses too if that's what it took."

    13 - America drops to 5th place in GLOBAL COMPETITIVENESS

    You can blame the US public on that one.. they dont want to create US industries and jobs.. they want to occupy it!

    They also dont want to see wealth creation, they want wealth redistribution.

    Look, I get it if people want someone new. I have no particular love for Obama's administration. I'm at best indifferent.

    But a lot of the criticisms of Obama just seem silly to me, like:

    Kingshat says

    2 - G.E sending 36000 Jobs Overseas,(Obama handpicked G.E. CEO to head his Jobs Committee)

    Right...Obama started that trend. It didn't have anything to do with free trade policies (by BOTH parties) that started long before.

    Kingshat says

    8 - Soaring FOOD and GAS Prices

    I think Uncle Ben carries more responsibility for that than Obama. Maybe Obama could have picked a new Fed chief?

    Kingshat says

    10 - The Downgrade of America's credit rating ( First time in American history)

    Fiscal conservatism is dead in both parties. Both parties buy votes. Bush bought the senior citizen vote with Medicare D.

    Kingshat says

    11 - First time in American history over 42 MILLION Americans are living in poverty

    Kingshat says

    14 - Over 400,000 small businesses closing every year under Obama

    Kingshat says

    16 - No Summer Recovery 2009, 2010, 2011

    Kingshat says

    19 - Enabled the LARGEST number of HOME FORECLOSURES
    20 - Turn America into the LARGEST FOOD STAMP NATION

    Kingshat says

    23 - Created OVER 25 million UNEMPLOYED

    All of that stuff is thanks to the collapse of a massive housing bubble both here and in abroad. That happened before his watch. I blame cheap money from the Fed combined with banking deregulation (securitizing toxic mortgages) more than I blame Obama (or Bush for that matter).

    Change that wasnt Change.. seems he has no change in mind.

    Fact is, even with Jeff Emelt on board, he had 3 years to implement a US Manufacturing Inititive to attract these job back... but no! he wrote those jobs off and sunk billions into bancrupt solution -- new industries in Clean and Green Tech, which is the Democratic party agenda... which as we see today in Solar is now dominated by China.

    Failed at both!

    Try to explain.. to the regular families from 2000 to 2006 and even today ... HOME PRICES are too high and in a bubble...

    Why were they overbidding and going bonkers on home prices, gambling like it was Vegas.. Has anything today changed if your blaming it all on mortgages...
