    Is Obama THAT bad?

    The conservative base portrays Obama as an "Anti-Christ" figure practically. Why is this? I personally don't find Obama to be half as bad as he is portrayed to be.

    Jon Stewart made a similar observation, he noted that as Americans get to know the GOP candidates better through the glut of televised debates, more and more are thinking Obama's not that bad!

    It's because he is black.

    I was honestly losing faith in our president until I started watching the Republicans on stage... I quickly found a way to believe in Obama again.

    For some, but Clinton faced the same kind of opposition from the far right.

    I don't see what any of the GOP candidates, except Ron Paul, are offering different from the same tax cuts for the rich/excessive military spending/ financial deregulation that we had during the 8 years of Bush.

    "Bush did it first" and "Obama is black, therefore you're a racist" are apparently the only talking points Obama needs to repel attacks from the right. Pathetic.
