    Re: Why do you dislike Obama?

    To my mind, "dislike" is the wrong word. "Disdain" is much more appropriate, or perhaps "contempt".

    The singular problem with Dear Leader is not that he failed to take the right stand on Iran (and failed again on Honduras), is not that he fails to grasp the basic dynamics of capitalist economics, is not that he persists in an inane delusion that government is ever a solution and never the problem, but simply that Dear Leader is the singularly most clueless, visionless, directionless, artless, and careless politician ever elected to the Oval Office.

    He is possessed of no defining principle. He illuminates no moral foundation. In all of his many ponderous pontifical speeches will you find anything that defines his ethic or his creed. Of a certainty you will find nothing that speaks to the defining ethic of American governance--namely, the rule of law. When he speaks, he vomits forth a volume of words that serves no purpose but to obscure the fact that he says little, and nothing of significance or of merit.

    Dear Leader is a failed leader because in order to lead, one must be willing to stand. One must be willing to declare who and what one is. That is the one thing Dear Leader has scrupulously avoided the entirety of his pseudo-adult life (unless one facetiously counts his persistent refrain of "it's not my fault").

    You need to meet Aps, our resident anti-smoker. She is a wonderful person in every way, except she hates those of us who smoke(well, she hates that we smoke anyway).

    Re: Why do you dislike Obama?

    So far, I've not seen much to indicate that Obama has a backbone. He seems to be a pansy who is more concerned with his popularity than doing the job he was elected to do. I also think he needs a crash course in diplomatic protocol. That's why God invented the Office of the Chief of Protocol. He should consult with that resource more often than he seems to. As others have mentioned, he is intent on turning us into a socialist state. Such is not what the founding fathers had in mind and it sickens me to think how much worse off we may be by the time his term is up if he succeeds in implementing his plans.

    Re: Why do you dislike Obama?

    I dislike him because he is a liar and he purposely misrepresents the truth.

    He arguments for specific policies are filled with so many logical fallacies that it boggles the mind.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    In all fairness, he is a politician. I think that's a qualifying attribute

    I think you just described nearly all politicians of every category in America, and beyond.



    As for me; I don't particularly dislike him, but he annoys me to no end when I hear him speak (about anything). His aim, in his speeches, is to inspire. He's still going with the Hope motif. For once, I would just like him to be real, to be blunt.

    It's like a parent telling their child that their dead dog is going to doggy heaven. The child probably already figured out that there is no such thing as doggy heaven, and that there is no Santa Clause, Tooth Fairy, etc etc. At this point, it's just insulting the child's intelligence. In the economic situation we're in, it really annoys me that he keeps saying something like "rough times are ahead, but we'll pull thru". For once, I'd like to hear, "Yep. We'd done ****ed up. Whatever we do now, will not please everyone. Someone amongst us will be screwed over, either the rich, poor, or middle class. Somebody up in here will be crucified sooner or later."

    Ohh I know but he is a bit more repugnant to me.

    I ended a psychology class about a month and a half ago, what I have learned has left me a bit scornful of all politicians.

    I hear ya. Politicians and their actions were the reasons I've never been much into politics until recently.
