But, there are others who say he didn't have signs until after he left office. He sounds alot like Palin in that debate video.

People just can't deal with the fact that yes, we are threatened by her, just as you are threatened by Obama.

How do people reconcile this in their minds? If we "hate" her, then you "hate" Obama. Open your eyes.

Get over it. It isn't hate. We just don't like her and don't want her. Just like you don't like him and didn't want him.

If I had ONE wish - ONE thing I could magically change about the forum - it's this accusation of "hate" crap I would outlaw. It has no place in political discourse. It's a lame, worn-out smear tactic, and that goes for people of all political stripes who do it.

You of all people are guilty of accusing people of "hate" and spewing hatred. I have not once said I hated Obama but yes indeed I will challenge him if I see something like his not keeping campaign promises. And because of that I am accused of hate. Um...okay....

She's not ugly, but I don't see her as a beauty queen, either.

I'm not sure why they hate her. The think they must consider her a real threat - during the election afraid that Obama could indeed lose because of her, and maybe now afraid she will be a factor in 2012? I honestly don't necessarily think she will be a factor in 2012; if I had to guess I'd say probably not. I think we are seeing by Obama's surrounding himself with the same old people that Washington wants the status quo; they don't want an outsider coming in and really making changes, so I doubt they'll let Palin in.

I'm not sure if it's her looks. I know if McCain and Palin had been elected and were already breaking campaign promises like Obama is, they'd be screaming their heads off. But they don't have a problem with Obama doing that. I really hate the double standard.
Your not sure why people hate her? Jesus disliked HYPOCRITES too. We have told you over and over here WHY people dislike her. LOL

"Allowing" her husband to attend meetings he has no business as private citizen attending, acting like the de facto governor of Alaska; "Drill Baby Drill"; doesn't read newspapers, books or magazines, lying; what's to like?

Well then by that definition you should hate Obama, as he is already breaking campaign promises.

He's not in office yet. So, pray tell, how is it he's breaking campaign promises??

Does he have to be in office yet to break campaign promises? He said no lobbyists will be working in his White House and he is appointing his cabinet - WITH LOBBYISTS. And he said he'd pull troops out of Iraq right away and now that he has seen the intelligence that BUSH has been basing his strategy on, he's decided he can't pull troops out and he basically is going to keep on with Bush's plan. So why was it not okay when it was Bush's plan, but it's okay after Obama sees the intelligence to come to the same conclusion? And renege on his plan to withdrawal troops?

That is how he is breaking promises. And I have a feeling this is just the beginning.
