    I took the thread topic as including the broader (nationwide) criticism of Obama. Not just this forum's.

    Re: Have the Republican Gone Too Far in Criticizing Obama

    As I said in some of those threads, I think some of those criticisms are not entirely reasonable, or nit-picky.

    I prefer criticisms of substance based on policy or methodology... and there's plenty of material for criticism in those.

    As Redress said, it is the nature of things that the party out of power criticizes the party in power. The Dems certainly gnawed on Bush every chance they got, for any reason whatsoever, whether ridiculous or justifiable, or in some cases just plain made-up.

    Me, I am about ready to start voting for the Guns-n-Dope party.

    Obama’s poll numbers plummet
    By Jerry White
    3 September 2009
    An increasing number of public opinion polls in the US show a sharp decline in popular support for President Obama and his administration’s policies on health care, the war in Afghanistan and the economic crisis. In the nearly eight months since taking office, the euphoria that greeted Obama’s election has largely evaporated.


    According to the Rasmussen Presidential Tracking Poll, 53 percent of likely voters disapprove of Obama’s performance. The president—who enjoyed a nearly 70 percent approval rating on Inauguration Day in January 2009—saw his rating fall below 50 percent for the first time in August, dropping to 46 percent.

    The Zogby Interactive Poll, which uses a larger sample of likely voters, found that only 42 percent approved of the job Obama is doing. A majority (53 percent) believe the US is headed in the wrong direction, with only 38 percent saying things were heading the right way.

    According to New York Times columnist David Brooks, no newly elected American president has ever seen such a rapid and steep decline in the polls. Much of the media, including Brooks, ascribe the fall to the president’s supposed embrace of liberal reformism. The US News & World Report, for example, headlined their report on the approval figures, “Poll: Democrats’ Hard Left Agenda Driving Away Independents.”

    When the Republicans got handed their asses in the election, they should have stopped and tried to figure out exactly why they lost. Instead, they recommitted themselves to the same policies and positions that cost them the election in the first place and now they're acting like spoiled brats and driving voters even farther away from the party. At this rate, they'll never win a major national political election again. And that's a good thing as far as I'm concerned, they haven't earned it, they gave up being conservative and embraced religiously-motivated neo-conism. I don't want them to win as they are now, I want them to fail utterly.

    We need a party that is actually conservative and the Republicans as they currently stand aren't it.

    I used threads on this board as an example, but every one of the threads correlates to real life arguments among republican party leaders at one time or another.

    Re: Have the Republican Gone Too Far in Criticizing Obama

    I find it amazingly full of **** that the GOP is aligning itself with many of the pillars of Ron Paul's '08 campaign, even after they tried to make light of all that he stands for.

    Suddenly taxes, spending, health care, personal freedom, and constitutional abuse are important.... Wow
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Some of us beeched about it when Bush was Prez just as much as we do now. I don't care who is doing it, I don't like it.

    Perhaps you should start a thread about that?

    Seems too be a hot topic for those on the right looking for ways to excuse their loons actions and motives.
