Party hardliners from bothsides do the same thing. Roll the clocks back and observe how the left cheered any and all Bush failures. The left made excuses and bashed any success.
GWB had more minorities on his staff and in key positions than any President before him. Oh but they were the wrong kinds of minorities?
George W Bush invested more money in Autism research than all presidents combined that came before him. I know screw those autistic kids, their needs are over rated right?
My point in all this is that hardliners always cheer failures and always minimize successes.
Look no further than city data posts for proof of this.
When gas prices went up under GWB he was in bed with the oil companies. It was a conspiracy. The left hard liners never shut up about it.
Now its Obama's turn and the left are using the exact same excuses that the right used for Bush. The right is enjoying giving the left a taste of their own BS.
Bush murdered hundreds of thousands in Iraq according to the left. An illegal war they claimed. Still waiting to see what made it illegal when congress and senate approved it.
Obama drops bombs in Lybia. How many Lybians died? How many died as the civil war raged on? What did Lybia have to do with us?
I have a question for those hardliners on the left.
Why is it assumed that anyone hates Obama simply because we disagree with his politics?
I myself don't hate the man. I don't know him well enough to hate him. I can't even say that I dislike him. In fact I'll say that I would like to know him better.
I disagreed with about 75% or more of GWB policies. I didnt hate him either.

Lightbulb Do most republicans hate Obama more than they love America?

I wouldn't say most Republicans.

But it's quite evident from the posts on this forum that the hyperpartisan right wingers definitely fit that assessment.

Which Obama?

So most repubs 'HATE" obama and the other repubs HATE him but not as much as they love America?

that statement doesn't leave room for any repubs having legitimate issues with Obama policies. If you HATE obama you must have set aside policy disagreements and just go into HATE for some other reason. So basically repubs have no legitimate reason for not supporting Obama, the original etch a sketch kid.

that statement in the OP had to arise from a poll of 1.

Hate, Love?????

So do they hate Obama more than they love America? I think so.
If a thug rapes and beats the hell out of a person's wife or daughter and puts them into a comma, would you ask them if they hate the thug more then they love their wife or daughter?

GM said its Volt was not ready, and Obama made them ram it thru, now it sucks. We did not not want Obama to run around forcing his ideologically driven agenda down everyone's throat; he is ruining this country's economy and making us poorer.

It comes from an honest and realistic assessment of the facts, combined with our life's experiences. We told everyone how inexperienced and unqualified Obama was to be president, and we told everyone how disastrous his policies would be for the nation, and three years of history have proven that we were, and are 100% correct.
