The far right has actually convinced me to vote for Obama again.
Each time I see a thread started on here about how Obama is a Socialist. With zero actual proof to back up that claim, it makes me want to vote for him again.
Each time I see a thread started on here about how Obama is the Anti-Christ and is going to devour everyone's soul, it makes me want to vote for him again.
Each time I see a birther thread started on here, it makes me want to vote for him again.
Each time I see a thread on here blaming the POTUS for something that the Congress does, it makes me want to vote for him again.
Because if he pisses off the fringe right so much, then he must be doing something right.
See if the far right stuck to just going after policy, going after hard facts, they probably could convince me to not vote for Obama again, but, they don't, they lie, they make up facts, they smear, they shovel so much complete BS that, it's impossible for me to trust ANYTHING they say against the POTUS.

The Right doesn't want to see any real change, that's the problem, they just want to bash policy without thinking about it at all.
- Thats a pretty BROAD statement. Everyone on the right or just some?
Yes, a lot can be blamed on the previous administration, why? Because the previous administration did a lot of things to screw up this country. And the folks on the right went along with it so, so, willingly.
-yea, I already know Bush is evil. But Obama is Little Nicky.
I am not gonna go into the whole race thing, after all that's a pointless argument on either side. But what I will say is that when you blindly hate someone, it's just as bad if not worse than blindly following someone. Now, when you talk about the POTUS and you say he is to blame for the bank bailouts, when it REALLY was the previous administration, or you talk about unemployment when it really was the previous administration, or you talk about bills that CONGRESS has the lions share of the fault for, and you blame this administration, you just look like an ass.
-bank bail outs...Tarp money... its all the same. It ALL goes to them, and none to us. BOTH administrations did this. And I condemn Both of them for doing so. You dont just dump money on top of your problems and think that everything is going to be just fine. Its Moronic.(and yes the bank bail-outs were Bush)I made a mistake. Take me to court.
Sorry, many of us are just sick of this blind raging hate for this president with little actual facts to support it. Get some real issues that you don't like about him, forget the stuff that the PREVIOUS administration is really to blame for, and really tell us what the facts are.
-Little facts? I gave you a list of them..and that wasnt even scratching the surface of what I could have written down. That was a 'brief' summary of Some of his most "stupidly" moments.
You don't like cap and trade, well, there's a point that you might have some validity on. But you have to round out your argument, just blindly hating cap and trade because this administration supports it is stupid.
- You made that assumption that I just "blindly hate it cause this administration does". Your words, not mine.
Healthcare is another one, a lot of people didn't like this bill. There were parts of it I did not care for either, but what did the right do? They lied, they told everyone that if this passes grandma was going to die, they told everyone that if this bill passes that the sky was going to fall and Satan was going to walk the earth. Give us facts or quit whining.
-Its funny you say that, cause I remember the exact opposite. "If we dont pass this bill, we will kill all these puppies" crap comming from not only his fat mouth, but the entire left wing. THEN, they had the audacity to try to ram it through, WITHOUT READING IT. No Suprise There. HURRY HURRY HURRY. Why the hurry? what did they have to hide? Well, by the looks of the bill, Im sure our great great great grandchildren will feel the effects of the hidden crap in that bill.
