I never quite understood that. Is it that the people who despise both of them are ignorant or just disengenous??? I know there are some on the right who didn't approve of Bush's or Romney's policies, but vast majority of Republicans and conservatives backed their policies, regardless of what the say. Libertarian party received 1%.

Same goes for Democrats. Leftists have voiced dissaproval of Obama, but many Democrats, especially moderate and conservative Democrats seem to give Obama a pass, while they condemn policies by Bush and Romney.

Mitt Romney is QUALIFIED to advance such policies. Barack Hussein is an unqualifed book worm with no training or experience.

Divide and Conquer my friend.
Obama is just a figure head anyhow.
Obama does not write these policies.

It is the same policy makers running the show regardless of who is president and they do not subscribe to any partisanship. They are all on the same page when it comes to exercising power over the people and taking their wealth. The only difference between some is how to go about doing it.

Uh.....you do know, don't you, that Barack Hussein has been president for the last four years?

How many years has Mittens been president?

I think having already held the job for four years made Barack Hussein much more qualified and experienced than Mittens.

Besides, haven't you heard? Mittens didn't even really want the job.

Thanks, I didn't need to be reminded. I try to forget.

Holding the position does not make one qualified for it. Obama is eminently unqualified to be President.
  • His policies have resulted in the downgrading of our credit rating.
  • His policies have resulted in the skyrocketing of our debt.
  • Unemployment has been the highest it has been since the great depression, with no hope of improvement during the remainder of his term.
  • Fuel prices are dramatically higher than when he took office, and he refuses to approve drilling, and a pipeline that would be a boon to jobs and do much to lower prices.
  • Instead of keeping taxes low, he foolishly raises taxes on those most able to affect growth in the economy, the job creators.
  • He has wasted millions of taxpayer dollars on hand outs to promote so-called "green" energy (companies who have donated to his campaign) only to have them file for bankruptcy.
  • His foreign policies have left us in greater danger than we were when Bush left office.
  • He has enabled the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood to take power in Egypt, Libya, and elsewhere, and he has in fact facilitated it
Obama makes excuses for his failure by blaming the poor state of our economy on what he "inherited," even though we were far better of in December 2008 than we are today.

Baseless speculation. If he didn't want the job, he wouldn't have run.

So if the problem Obama's critics have are with his competency, why call him a Marxist or Muslim?? Why hate him??

The reason they hate each other is very simple. The ones that happen to be in power at the moment get more of the loot. They would hate each other even if their policies were identical. They are all nothing but a pack of self serving political hoors.

They arent. However, it is good cover for the hard left to make their guy more appealing to a nation that is generally moderate.

Obama is a hard left guy who has done plenty for anyone to see what he really is if they will just look.

The left will not admit that because the left cannot be honest about their intent as it would prevent people very voting for them.
