I don't hate him. I don't hate anyone or anything. I believe hate poisons the soul of the person doing the hating.

I will bash him though cause I think he's a lunatic.

Thats not hate, that's politics.

If you can sing his praises, I can curse his goals.

It's how we figure things out. Nothing more.

Also it does seem the media covers Obama way way more than McCain. There are always new Obama stories, new Obama quotes, new weird Obama friends discovered etc...

There is a HUGE gap between the Obama that the msm has portrayed and the REAL Obama. The posts criticizing Obama reflect a backlash against the total lack of criticism found in the msm.

Also, Obama has brought almost all the criticism on himself. People have seen through the fact that it was/is Obama that's played the race card almost non-stop. He's come across as less than honest in his claims that he didn't know Rev. Wright was so wacked, and he's come across as elitist for a variety of comments.

He's quick to insult his opponents in a degrading way, and he's disingenuous about not being connected to big business. He comes across as arrogant and egotistical, and often appears to be talking down to people, e.g., "sweetie," "bitter and clinging", "typical white person," etc.

But all this STILL doesn't mean that I hate him. I just think he'd make a terrible president.

haha it doesn't matter buddy. It doesn't matter if its good attention or bad attention, if the public is talking about you that's all that matters.

There is no such thing as negative press coverage.


better to be talked about than not talked about at all. Like McCain.

You won't be able to see a anonymous post until someone authorizes it, son't want to much spam, eh?

obama's getting bashed mainly because people think he's good for the presidency, and he's easy to bash. people'd vbe bashing McCain if he was more popular, or had more about him. Ron Paul'd be dragged through the mud if he'd been more popular.
It's what we do with politicians. Sheesh, you're acting like it's personal.

The hate is because the people who support McCain are actually trying to smear Obama and get the people to switch sides.

Not only are you calling the fella names, you are making several omniscient assumptions.
Maybe he has multiple personality disorder, Korsakoff's psychosis,other short-term memory syndromes, brain worms, mood swings, hypoglycemia.
You don't know his heart or mind.
Or are you God, and I'm the one out of line.

Nahhh...I think most people that dislike Obama realize they are talking to a WALL when they try to point out his many inconsistencies and different forms of hypocricy.

Maybe the republicans can come up with some dirt that will shock the brainwashed Obama masses into some semblence of reality, but no amount of debating on boards will do it.

Barack Obama to the American people is an unknown. The reaction to the unknown is usually fear. Barack Obama is different from many of the American people. The reaction of the people to those of differing social-economic backgrounds also tends to be fear. A good friend of mine is a lifelong democrat and leads an alternative lifestyle. He is going to vote for the John Mcain because in his words, "Obama scares the crap out of me." I asked him why he scares him, and it was something he said he couldn't put in words. He just scares him and he doesn't know why. He would have voted for any of the other Dems that were running, but not HIM.

I'm going to vote vor him (Obama), because a Mcain presidency will be more big business profits and less power for the people. We can't take 4 more years of trickle-down economics. As we can all see it doesn't work. It didn't work with Reagan, or Bush Sr., and it hasn't worked for W either. All trickle-down economics does is make the rich richer, and the middle class and lower class poorer.

How the American people can consistantly vote against our own self-intrest continues to be a mystery to me.

Obama isn't going to be helping out the middle class, either. He's going to be pushing for higher taxes to support all the money he wants to give to everyone and their brother.

High taxes, big government, and everyone a "victim".

I don't hate him or anyone else. I do think this guy is treated as the second coming, when in reality he isn't the same guy when taken away from a teleprompter (sp?).

There is nothing new in his “vision”. He's literally proposing ideas that were tried, and failed, in the late 70's early 80's.

Republicans in power now making him look bad. Keep asking him too many questions and he's bound to stumble, they'll use any thing they can get. All this while McCain befriends the people in the background.

I dont know if I am an Obama basher, but I sure am not a Neophyte of the Cult of Obama either.

Why I dont like/trust him;

1) He acts like his family, his white family, is unimportant to him. He is trying to hard to sell the "I am a black man" issue at the expense of the truth about his life, upbringing etc. Someone who abandons the people who raised them and loved them for personal gain is NOT someone I think has a good character.

2) The press has been pushing him as the second coming of the Lord since LONG before his book, long before this whole campaign started. I am terribly suspicious of someone (who really doesnt have any groundbreaking or earthshattering record of diplomacy or legislation) who is being singled out as a Messiah by the press purely for his charisma, not for his work record. If he had both, that would be great, but no one is really saying "Look at the wonderful work Obama has done here." They are saying "Look how compelling he is to the masses." That scares me. Jim Jones was compelling to his masses. Hitler was compelling to his masses. Just being a compelling speaker without a firm track record of good work and loyalty and character means a whole lot of nothing.

3) The very fact that the press, the Corporate media, and surprisingly, the Republicans are kind of leaving him alone. (They sure arent slicing and dicing him a la Hilary.) If he were as good for the little guy as he (and the Corps) want us to believe they would be tearing his butt apart in the press. That whole memo to the Canadians regarding how they were not to worry about the rhetoric he was spewing about NAFTA, that it was just rhetoric, didnt help his image in my eyes, either.

NAFTA and agreements like it, are not just about protecting or giving away American jobs, they are a real threat to the sovereignty of America itself.

Higher taxes for those who make over 250,000$/year, and an increase in the standard deduction by $1000 for anyone making less than that ceiling per year. So I'd say that is a tax cut.

I am in full agreement with most of what you say. I was an Edwards supporter because I liked his populist messaage. I just can't ever see myself voting for Mcain. I left the Democratic party when Clinton first pushed through NAFTA, because I could see what it was going to do to this country. With Mcain it'll be more globalization, more "free" trade and more tax cuts for the wealthy while the middle class gets punched in the mouth by more trickle down economics.

We need some kind of New, New Deal to help the failing small businesses, restore our infrastructure, and promote new forms of energy. I don't see Mcain ever doing anything like that. More tax cuts for the rich will bankrupt our government. We're already seeing that down here in Florida. Jeb's tax cuts for big business led to higher operating costs for small businesses like the one I own. 8 years ago I only had to pay a total of $250/year to keep my business legal here in Florida. Now, I'm looking at $900 just to the state, $180 to my local municipality, and $45 for the county. That doesn't include my liability insurance, which has quadrupled in the last 8 years. THESE ARE THE RESULTS OF REPUBLICAN TAX CUTS! Small businesses that have been around for decades being forced to pay more than their fair share to keep our state running.

What was our new governor's fix for this problem? Huge cuts in the schools, transportation, privatizing of our birdges and roadways. They even raised the cost of the LOTTERY for god's sake!!! This is what happens when we cut taxes for big business, and make the lower and middle income people carry the burden.
