    Reason, on my part, and your unwillingness to consider it, is at the root of this. Obama could have been a capitalist instead of a Marxist using crony capitalism to launder money for his party and I would have had far less to be concerned about. Obama could have supported America's allies and sanctioned our enemies instead of toppling our allies and supporting our enemies. I would have had far, far less to be concerned over. Obama could have shunned the actions of a tyrant. Had he done all three he might have been a decent president instead of the one who willingly presided over the decline of the nation.

    I suppose to a blind supporter all of that looks like hate.

    Then what do you suppose this "Change" thing was all about?

    Anyone who believes lies may be gullible, or naive, like those who voted for Barrack Obama as an example, but that does not mean they "hate".

    Do you 'hate' Barrack Obama because he is a serial and non-repentant liar?

    Yes, I respect evidence. yes.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    More hyperbolic claims will not convince. The more you exaggerate, the less you convince anyone but the same loser choir.

    A political slogan aimed at not fighting wars and forgetting the American people at home.

    No, when you go beyond rational thought to exaggerate ever move, hate is the most likely cause.

    No you don't. You believe what you want to believe from the sources you want to believe. Actual verifiable non partisan information is ignored by you

    NEWS FLASH: Gruber will be testifying before Congress tomorrow. It seems members of the administration also called in to testify have specifically requested not to be seated next to Gruber.
