Ask those people in the video, or anyone here, to tell you exactly what Obama has done to earn this hatred, they can't tell you.

He beat McCain.

People love him.

There is no bottom for Republicans.

That's all it takes.

It is difficult to say how well informed the folks in the video are because it only shows a couple seconds on each person. First, it is difficult to respond to a question in a concise way when someone stick a microphone in your face. Second, most any recorded conversation can be edited down to a few seconds that make a response look uninformed. Tea Party folks are better informed than the average American but the person making the video obviously wanted to disparage these good and conscientious citizens because he has no affinity to the truth. I bet very few would use the word 'hate' to describe there feelings toward The Moron occupying the WH.

As a Tea Party enthusiast myself, I would answer that it is his big spending, socialist ideology along with dissing our traditional friends and catering to our enemies. All of that while concealing his history is reason to be suspicious. But the most important issue is the big spending, including healthcare and stimulus.

Seriously, for once, what emotion motivates your denigration of the president and his office in your hostile manner?

Is it hatred? Disgust? Part of the 5 stages of reaction that are common among terminally ill patients or those going through other wrenching traumas of change?

It's certainly aggressive language, whatever it stems from. Or are you neutral on the man himself, actually, as to negative emotional sentiment, and simply save your hatred for people who have a different political view, such as Democrats?

I did not watch the video but Obama has spent this country into the deepest debt ever. He has done nothing for employment other help them find lower paying jobs than they had 4 years ago and then turn around and tell them they are better off now.

Well, since the thread is all about what's in the video, why don't you try watching it and then get back to me. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif

And while you may think that Obama is a big spender throwing money around like a drunken sailor, the facts just don't bear that out:

For those of us who believe that freedom it the ultimate 'good' and that keeping that freedom depends on limiting government to a size no larger than required to protect that freedom and maintaining civility, it is impossible to accept or compromise with those who want to expand it even beyond its current bloated size. It should be enough to know the government is the natural enemy of freedom and therefore must be strictly limited but happily, maximizing liberty also maximizes prosperity.

So along comes a real Red Diaper Baby, The Moron, with his grandiose ideas about fundamentally transforming our country but his words and his policies are so extremely stupid as to be justifiably call moronic. He is gifted orator and with plenty of commie support from academia has been setting about transforming our country toward his Marxist/statist goals. I suspect he understands that capitalism is the most efficient economic system because he said as much but he knowingly sacrifices those benefits for more equal distribution of the wealth. He believes it is better to have less wealth more evenly distributed than more wealth unfairly divided.

This has obvious problems for the bulk of society but works quite well for the politicians in charge. And being that they have police power, the nomenclatura at the top envision themselves as being in charge for a very long time.

Honestly, I have nothing against The Moron except maybe for his messiah self-image. I only use that moniker to emphasize how radical and anti-American he is. Communism has been around here since it started but it was always an extremely small minority, mostly in the Universities. Unfortunately, our education system has done such a poor job of teaching our great American story that we have become susceptible to the dumbest of policies as long as they are presented by what otherwise appear to be intelligent people and supported by the MSM. Hence, we end up with someone who is totally anti-American and who is doing a pretty good job of bring us down.

It is surprising how many commies there are or how many 'useful idiots' there are that still support our own decline.

Great quotes by lotter:

"Honestly, I have nothing against The Moron."

"James Kopp, A real Hero and martyr."

Saying you nothing against the MORON is equivalent to the old joke- I took up for you the other day. Somebody said you ate shit sandwiches and I said that couldn't be true. You don't like bread.

Are you freaking nuts or just plain stupid? Four years ago the economy was in complete free-fall and was shedding around 600,000 jobs a month, the stock market was at 8,000 points, the auto industry was on the very edge of complete collapse, corporate profits were way down, and we were in one of the worst recessions since the Great Depression. Today we have a stock market at around 13,000+, many people have recovered the losses to their 401k's, job growth (while slow) has been steady for 2+ years, corporate profits are at record levels, the US auto industry is chugging along rather nicely, the recession is over, the war in Iraq is over, Bin Laden is dead, and thanks to the ACA, affordable health care will be available to all. Wake up already!

Considering that he thinks anybody who disagrees with him is an idiot, I doubt that he will admit that he is stupid. As for nuts, I am worried about his mental state, but I just wish we could all have civil discourse on here.
Ed has said that he truly enjoys calling people idiots but we can take a classier stance if we choose.

I am awake and Obama has failed. When are you willing to wake up? Americans are worse off. The 4.5 million jobs that he "created" are on average less pay than the jobs they replaced. So, if the middle class was doing bad 4 years ago, thanks to Obama they are doing even worse now. Surprised this little bit of common sense eludes you.

Actually, I did step up and tell him. The fact that you failed to see that tells me that you only see what you want to see.
I did speak in gentler terms because he hasn't said the things to me that you have.
Being the intellectual giant that you are, I'm sure that you can understand that.
