The disdain for these groups emitted by the Right is aimed at the very being of these people. It's a wonder why it's only 4 or 5 percentage points.

Obama certainly presents some question marks, but they are on complicated issues where smart people know the answers are not so easy: getting out of Afghanistan sooner, cutting gov't employment, rading medical marijuana facilities, not penalizing finance execs, continuing some wrong subsidies, various painful budgetary decisions, etc.
Romneys distain.. wow,, sounds like the liberal msnbc got you believing this drivel.

Why are President Obama

It's all about the money, what is put out by the mitt super pacs will demonize mother Thersa if they could. Hey they called carl rove "bush's brain" and he is behind (reluctantly) mitts money infusion. This is the reason that you see so much negative ads and propaganda regarding the president. The reason that his poll numbers are not bad is because most of the stuff that comes out is either a lie or a half truth. Personally I believe the reason is because mitt has the personality of a retarded snail and that many people can see through his BS

Because only the Tea Party really believed you could turn the world largest economy around and put 8 million people back to work in 17 months.

Got news for you, so many whome voted for Obama first time around, NOT SO EXCITED THIS TIME AROUND?

Still waiting u see for all this Hope n' Change, which by the way was garbage, as is what he is feeding the people this time around.

Footnote to your rant: You are aware that on Jan 10 2008 the leading republicans got together in a restaurant in Washington and decided to block any and all legislation that Obama and the Democrats bring up before them. I guess you did not get or ignored the memo.

Fyi many blacks are not happy with him BECAUSE he DID NOT help them out as assumed by them and feared by many whites. But guess what? They are still going to vote for him because voting for minortron mitt is only going to make the sitaution worst.

It took 8 years for the bumbling bush to screw up the economy and do you really expect it to be fixed in less than four? this is on top of the refuticans and those nutjobs called teabaggers obstructing everything that can help the American people

I voted for him the first time and I am excited about a 2nd term if he gets one. I'm not even a democrat. Most of the democrats I know are more on the Obama bandwagon than in 2008 even when I tell them he will have a tough battle, they think I am crazy LOL! They are gung ho Obama supporters.

Also, it is strange to me that so many of you think that us black people are only voting for Obama because he is black. You do realize that over 90% of black people always vote for the democrat and before 2008, they always voted for a white person right....

Didn't cheer when OJ was cleared (didn't and don't care about OJ) but I do think he is doing a good job, it is not outrageously good, but decent and I'd rather stick with him than rock the boat and get someone else in who will need more on-the-job training.

The bolded is the truth. I know many of you don't want to acknowledge it but it is the truth.
