I myself am a Canadian, so I guess I just don't "get it" but from here, all the anti-Obama hatred or most of it, appears to be irrational and
without much foundation, like a knee jerk reaction.
Given that he is the leader of the country, and appears to want what's best for the American people, like economic recovery and a burgeoning and
resurgent middle class, immigration reform, equal rights, education reform, etc. I'm just not sure how all the anti-Obama hatred is helpful in
advancing collectively held US values..
Isn't the USA all about taking personal responsibility, working hard, helping out, and seeking a better life for one's self, one's family, and the
community at large?
Maybe it's none of my business, but it appears to me that Obama was dealt a very bad hand in the post Bush/Cheney era, and that he's done the best
he could with the resources available to him. You elected him with a majority of the vote and then re-elected him.
Even if you didn't vote for Obama, why not bury the hatchet and get behind the initiative for a resurgent USA and all manner of progressive change
for the better, which will be much easier for the Executive Branch to help accomplish and realize with the support of the American people?
It's like you're a nation divided for little if no reason than what appears to be an irrational, emotional "gut feeling" i.e.: that Obama is evil
incarnate and therefore everything he says and proposes much be held up to ridicule and scorn.
He's by no means perfect, but from what I can tell he's the best you've got at the moment and may be the best leader and President you've had in a
Anyway, it looks to me like all this division and seething animosity towards all things Obama may be undermining US values and US progress.
I felt I had to say something, for whatever it's worth.
