This is truly turning into a phenomenon. Obama may be the first candidate in history where his supporters cannot fathom ANY rational reason
why people don't support him.
Here, add this to your list why some people don't like the idea of Obama for President:
Your clearly not reading what Im saying here Jamie. Did I say theres no reason for those people not to support Obama? No I didnt but obviously you
find it convienient to add alittle extra to what im saying to suit your argument. Let me just remind you again, theres no need for insults just
because somebody does not share you view mmk?
1. He's inexperienced.
2. He's far too liberal.
3. He's arrogant, condescending, and elitist.
4. He's naive.
5. He wants to weaken the U.S. militarily.
See was this so hard? You did it without having to insult anybody.
1. Yes he is the least experience out of all three candidates but I believe he has enough experience to become POTUS and quite frankly experience
didnt do the nation a whole lot over the last 7yrs now did it?
Hillary is not that much more experienced than Obama, she became senator in 2000, Obama was in the illinois senate from 1997-2004 and then senator
from there. Theres not a great deal of differences in experience let alone policies unless you include Hillary as being first lady.
2. Fair enough, its your ideology so I dont really expect you to share his viewpoints just like I dont agree with those of the far right.
3. Arrogant? How? So Hillary and her camp were not so arrogant to assume she would become the democratic nominee? Many assumed that Hillary would be
nominee by now and probably invested plenty of money and what not into Hillarys run for president, that sort of explains the angry people, some in
Elitist? Explain why. The last time I check Hillary and McCain earn much more than Obama has, both Hillary and McCain are tied to Washington much
longer than Obama, both Hillary and McCain take money from lobbyists, whos elitist?
4.I think its very important to bring confidence to your supporters and get them fired up, whether it be for "hope" or "change" history shows that
if your confident and determined you will get far. I certainly want change in america, do you?
5. Hows that? By sitting with those leaders the "right" calls "the axes of evil"? I will refer to history again where it shows that sitting down
with your enemies often defuses the situation. Its better to use diplomacy first before any action. You cannot shut somebody out and call them the
enemy without trying to sort it out through diplomacy first.
If your refering the the Iraq war, the military is over stretched and under paid, you should check out the news regard army bases and lack of
resources all under the Bush administration that McCain intends to follow. Military has already been weakend. Im disagree with you there.
Now you want to make it off limits to insult somebody's candidate???
Ok, in the spirit of cooperation and unity, I will consider going along with this. You need to first start with people insulting President Bush and
Vice President Cheney. Once you convince everybody to stop insulting Bush and Cheney, get back to me, and we will move to the next phase of the
verbal disarmament talks.
Oh no I think you clearly misunderstood where im coming from here, I said theres no need to personally insult somebody simply because they support
another candidate. I cant stop you or your pro-Bush/Hillary buddies from insulting people but I am making a point here that theres no need for such
childish behaviour in this forum and that it doesnt get you anywhere. The arguments with Bush supporters usually come from both sides and these
arguments against bush regard real events in which the administration clearly messed up and people have the right to be angry in that case. The
garbage your flooding ATS with are personal insults to anybody who disagrees with you, right wing conspiracies/rumors and and other personal attacks
on a candidate that isnt really an issue for the election year, only yours.
This isnt middle school so why dont you leave that attitude there and make the forum environment good suitable for adults.
Where did this sudden obsession about being insulted come from??? Now you can't insult somebody's beliefs or values? Ok, I get where
you're coming from in theory, but WTH??? How are you going to police this? Just the fact that somebody would support late term abortions is an
insult to my beliefs and values.
Seriously, why is there all of a sudden this outbreak of being thin-skinned around here???
In my last comment I stated that I cant stop people from making personal insults but simple making points here about the anti-Obama sentiment that
everybody has to be dragged into. Theres no need for childish behaviour now is there? It only takes afew people to grow up and cut out these BS
threads inorder for these childish threads to stop. Why is there such a need to insult everybody that disagrees with you?? Ofcourse theres an
outbreak of thin-skinned people and its the ones complaining and posting personal insults in these threads like you Jamie. Get over it, really.
Exactly. The Obama supporters who take offense at being asked to just name one policy of Obama's have become very disgruntled because
everybody hasn't fallen in step yet.
What the hell are you talking about? You keep on repeating yourself. I just posted Obamas policies in another thread in reply to you. By the looks of
all these anti-obama threads coming out and all this complaining about the support his getting maybe you and your McCain buddies are acting
Seriously, I commend your idealism
Yes Jamie, it aint a perfect world so act like a jackass right?
