When George Bush was elected for his 2nd term, many were outraged. They expressed it too.

But I dont remember there being so much hate as there is for Obama. Not here @ ATS but in far right talkshows, Blogs,chatrooms,ect. Its great to disagree but I do not understand the pure hate I hear. Obamas policies arent much different than Bush's cept a few.

I was wondering how others felt about hate instead of disagreement?

Thanx, peace out

I think the problem is those who speak from the right, are outnumbered by the sleepers.

We are trying to inform those that are not informed. People who think from the right take WAY more heat because we have a voice. We are the balance. The hate springs from lefties feeling the sense that they might be wrong.

Just my thought.

It's the fear and propoganda, the Bush administration ruined the American People's confidence in they're government, and it's Obama's job to put that trust back in it's rightfull place.

People who act of hate, are really only acting out of fear, they don't want change, because change got them into this mess really. (ie..patriot act..etc...)

It'll start to come around if Obama actually does a good job, you'll see more and more support as time goes on.

As sad as it is to say he's half black. That is why he is getting so much hatred and people wanting to cast him as the Antichrist. He turned the standard way things are done on it's head in their eyes just by being elected while black. It really is a historic upset if you think about it.
Simple fact is people hate change. They would much rather be comfortable a hair width's bad decision away from annihilation before they change anything, even the skin color of their president.

I find there is much more hate also, with President Obama. I think it boils down to, the fact that Bush was such a horrible person and president, that the right is spewing hate and distrust to President Obama.

It comes down to the fact, so many people had lost hope with Bush - but now President Obama has come along and they hate that millions have faith and hope in him, as they never had in Bush.

The final raw energy and feelings they have is just pure - jealously and the fact that Bush's presidency was such a dismal failure - and has put our country in jeopardy.

Imagine if someone had said, what Limbaugh said the other day "he hopes Obama fails". Wow, the right would have been all over anyone who said that! But the right will keep trying to put fear in people against President Obama, that is the only thing they know how to do.... is try and make people hate and fear - one bogeyman or they have a direct bulls eye.

I think it is sad and disappointing, that people are immediately thrashing our President. Especially since they are the same ones, who refuse to take an honest look at Bush.

I have decided to just ignore people who try to instill fear and hate.....I just feel sorry for them. I also feel for all of us, and our children and their children, due to we will be paying for generations - from Bush tearing down the U.S and world.

But, I also don't expect much, from those on the right......most talk about how "moral" they are and Bush was, but the fact is, they show themselves to be the most judgemental and hateful people....Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Hannity, they are good examples of that.

fear and ignorance gets my vote.

they know how unstable the economy is so feel safe knocking obama knowing nothing short of a miracle is going to fix anything soon.

oh well ...

ya the politics of hate didnt exist in the CIVIL WAR ?

Oh politics of hate didnt exist when americans tar and feathered british tax collectors?

the politics of hate didnt exist in the vietnam war??

Guys read a history book. The politics of hate is NOT new!!!
It is as OLD as Civilization itself!

Think about it.
Rome, The Golden Horde, European Imperialism, the USSR, Nazi Germany, the Inquisitions , the Crusades and Jihads of the medieval era, on and on and on and on!!

History Books people! Read them

Perhaps the REAL motives of this discussion is to stir up more RACISM??

Quite a Shame...Thankfully I laid the smack down

Good point muzzleflash. However we live in a so called civilized society. I guess we aren't all that civilized and still have a long way to go.

Thanx for all the input.
