First, to the interview. I think it was a bit too political for the Superbowl, however I think that O'Riely's harder pitchs weren't too over the line for the atmosphere. I think he did a good job of asking questions that, while may seem illigitimate to some of his supporters (because they don't feel that way), were important to some of his detractors and those on the fence to hear...and they're as large and legitimate of a faction as the other side of things. I think he did a good job asking them as legitimate questions of Obama for Obama to answer if he agrees, or why he thinks they may view it that way, or if that view it leigtimate, or how he feels about it, etc. Never questions simply assuming that he IS those things but more for his responses. Wasn't a great interview, but for the venue I think it was rather hard hitting while not being over the top.
As to the question in particular in the title of this thread...I agree. I think its very hard to "hate" Obama or "hate" Bush as people. You may hate them as the President, you may hate what they've done, but no matter how many people foolishly yuck it up like they know Bush's thoughts, hopes, and intelligence first hand or how many people ridiculously declare what's really deep in Obama's soul the real fact is as human beings...as people...we know very little about our Presidents. Not near enough to honestly "Hate" them personally in any way other than an irrational hatred.
