No. There are plenty of people I've come across and see, who disagree with Obama. It is the immature who can't hide behind their real self though, that get caught. They also happen to be the most vocal ones and likely a fringe group.

I must say I have seen FAR worse at liberal protest with the addition of property damage. The only one I found really objectional was the one about Kennedy.

I hope the people weren't as stupid. Seriously, a few months ago I asked one man why he hated Obama so much and he said "I lost my job because of that Nazi." Calling a Black man a Nazi is asinine anyway, but I felt badly and said "Aw, that's too bad. How long have you been unemployed?"

"Over 10 months."

Kennedy fought very hard for the working class. Republicans didn't want the minimum wage increased and he asked them "What is it about working men and women that you find so offensive?" Republicans also fought against Johnson when he passed Medicare, yet many of the protesters looked over 65 to me. I wonder if they'd give up their Social Security checks too? One of the funniest videos I've seen lately was on the Rachel Maddow show.

YouTube - Rachel Maddow: "Billionaires For Wealthcare" At Washington Protest

I have seen just as many stupid people interviewed on the left. Many knew nothing about obama or his position on issues but said they voted for him because he was black or cute. It happens.

hussein obama and Reid tried to USE Kennedy's death for the health care bill. That had to come right from the gutter. That is why some protesters linked obamacare and Kennedy together which in reality should not be objectional.

I would watch your video of Maddow show but I do not watch confused women who think they are a man. I have my principles.

He didn't spread lies and tell the crowd that Taylor's songs had subliminal messages to kill your babies and your grandparents or that illegal immigrants were going to get her CDs for free.

What's ironic about the Hitler signs is that his opponents are acting like Hitler, not Obama. Think about it. They are rallying people together and using fear tactics, lies and hatred to unite them.

Hmm it was a black man that showed up ata rally with a gun strapped to his leg. Kanye West is a racist and a cad. It is hussein obama, his criminal racist administration the left that are using fear tactics, lies, race baiting and hatred to try to destroy this country.

That race is a part of the protest against the President is clear - just look at the signs and listen to the comments. That race would be used by some critics of the President was expected even before he took office - it was inevitable, given that he is the first person of color to occupy that office.

Anyone old enough to remember JFK's Presidential campaign knows that the first Catholic to be elected President faced the same kind of ignorant prejudice, only it was religion and not race with Kennedy. I remember people saying that he would talk his marching orders from the Vatican. That was nothing other than hate born of fear, just like the racism we see directed against the President today.

The funny/sad aspect of all this is that the people who speak up against the racism shown the President are themselves called racists. When a person calls the fire department to report a fire, does that mean that person is an arsonist?

Blaming peoples opposition to Obama on race is a copout, diversion and divisive (oh does that word sound familiar??) Of course there is racism and there are racists, but you can't paint the opposition with a broad brush. We have so many reasons to choose from...

What a joke. News flash: nobody cares about the color of Obama's skin. I don't like his politics, I don't care if he's black, red, white, green, yellow, or mauve. 99.9% of people who do not like Obama feel that way only because of his politics. I'm sure there are neo-nazi and white supremacist groups that hate him because of his color, but that is not why the average person dislikes him.

The race card is getting old. Is it not possible to dislike Obama without being a racist? So everyone either needs to be an Obama fan or else they're a racist? Ridiculous!
