A president is not a dictator, is not all-powerful.
A president is subject to innumerable influences who can, if they wish, destroy him very effectively in the eyes of the voting public (witness the current debacle over Obama's birth certificate and the disgraceful poster campaign)

Nope, the office of president is weakened because we elected weak leaders! It is our fault by allowing MSM to sway our votes!

Personally, I see this as more a ground swelling of distrust in our government as a whole, than anything like hate of an individual president.
First of all, 'hate' is a much overused, if not totally abused word. Many of us will never know what true hatred is. The best way I know to define it is by saying that hate is the opposite of love and in life, experiencing true love is indeed quite rare.
Do you have children? If your children watched the leaders' on tv and said, 'Mum, Dad .. I'm going to X-location. I can't stand the state of this country any more. I'd rather die fighting than live as a slave to the military-industrial complex ! Come ! Join me! Together we can make a difference ! ' Then, he rushes to his room for his rifle and hand axe.

If he showed one iota of being one of us, we would all drop our bias and hatred toward one another and stand united with him.
