I dont really hate Sarah Palin. I do hold great dislike for her viewpoints. When conservatives parade her around as they tend to do, what do you
expect? Really? If she is the one taking the publicity for book and money deals, what do you expect? That everybody is going to fall in love with
Why do people hate' Obama? Why do you 'hate Obama'?
You see, I would not post a thread like that because I would not be so quick to generalize every critic of Obama as being simply 'hateful'. There
are people who feel his policies are not working, that his not taking the country into the right direction, and while I may disagree with them, they
are just people being critical, not necessarily hateful.
'Hate' is such a powerful word, often used to lump all opposing views into one. Some people 'hate' Palin but not all, and from what Iv seen people
have been critical of her actions, just like those of Obama. Doesnt make them automatically hateful.

I agree with you. I felt disgusted when some people referred to her in such a manner, and said many other things. That being said, you will always
find hateful people, its a given. You cannot expect to readily accept the fact there are people who hate Obama, but be in disbelief that the same
applys to Palin, Bush, Clinton, Ron Paul etc. It goes both ways.
There will always be hateful, spiteful people who take it too far. You cannot change that fact, and you certainly cannot whine about it when it
happens to be a public figure you admire.
I have disagreed with quite a number of Obama's policies, I did agree with his decision to let the Navy Seals handle the Captain held by
pirates, but I don't recall attacking him as a person.
Well alot of people have attacked him as a person. You cannot complain about a minority of hateful people towards Palin, and then dismiss the same
case for Obama by claiming you never did the same thing.
It goes both ways as I said. Sometimes its best for both sides to dismiss such hate and acknowledge that one can be critical without being hateful.
