Six months ago I believed that Obama would be an acceptable and tolerable President.
Yes i hear that alot from anti-Obamanians who want to tear him to shreds, I also hear plenty of them saying they were former Hillary and Ron Paul
supporters. Whats my point? Well I hear this from 90% of anti-Obamanians, and to be frank I think its utter BS, its the political tactic of
impartiality to justify ones deslike for another. I dont buy it.
As the primaries lingered on and more information on Obama's policies
The ones that he shares 95% of the time with Hillary? No no continue, youv already made up your mind regardless.
and his questionable relationships surfaced
Yes like that one cut up transcript of rev wright? Why dont you find another speech like that before March 2008, I mean I cant seem to find one. What
relationships? Ill go down them with you one by one if you tell me.
I lost all respect for him and started hoping that Hillary would earn the nomination.
There was never any respect from yourside, you made up your mind when the neocons began pumping in the propaganda. Now, if you can tell us exactly
where Obama went wrong for you, I would be happy to discuss this further.
When talking to people about Obama and even when reading the threads on ATS, two things pop out. First, it seems that the majority of
Obama's supporters are not really fans of his ... they simply are supporting him because they are against what they feel would be Bush's 3rd
No thats not true, you see, this is an assumption from yourside. If you had actually spoken with Obama fans you would get mixed reasons, but you dont
really do so, do you? I dont support McCain because I dont agree with conservative policies. I was against the Bush administration at a time you with
called unpatriotic, yet I stood my ground and to this day I still stand by the Democrats and I refuse to support McCain with his 95% Bush voting
record and flip flopping. Here you go, straight out from an Obama supporter.
Ofcourse Bush has an impact in my decision but its not the main reason.
Second, those behind Obama are so intense in their support they will follow him blindly no matter what he says or does. It's as if he can do
no wrong in their eyes.
Jamison you know full well that this is an excuse, I support the man because he fits my liberal values and he will be withdrawing troops from Iraq.
You will get the same answer from plenty of Obama supporters but you dont ask them yourself Jamison, you made up your mind for other reasons,
Why do you support Obama? Is it because of his issues or because you fear a third term of Bush?
I support him because I believe in universal healthcare.
I support him because he will withdraw troops from this war of lies and will focus on Afghanistan where the real tyrant is.
I support him because he best suits my liberal values.
I support him because the republicans lied and turned its back on half of the american people over these last 7years, now that its election year, they
give a damn, and you seem to give into this political pandering easily.
And more importantly, as an Obama supporter, can you imagine ANY scenario that would cause you to vote AGAINST Obama???
Yes sure, if he said he will no longer be withdrawing troops from Iraq,
If he goes agains the rights of individual women.
If he turns conservative over night.
Yes you made up your mind long before you ever bothered to ask us why we actually supported the man, another case of somebody listening to propaganda
