I don't think it's that personal. If any Republican president had Obama's track record, the Republicans would be trying to canonize him, or at least renaming everything they could after him. If another Democrat had the same track record, they would still be pulling the same crap. They are the party of sore losers.

If Obama said that adults shouldn't eat their own poo, within twenty minutes a variety of idiots would be on TV with sh*t-stained mouths angry about him attacking their poo-eating rights.
 
2014-07-14 05:25:58 PM  
Close, but not quite right. If he named apple pie the official American dessert, they would call apple pie Communist and introduce a bill naming Vanilla Ice  cream the official American dessert.

Vanilla ice cream would be too sensible.

And the party of racists. Don't forget that part. It's important. They don't like Obama because he's a Democrat, but they *hate* him because he's a BLACK Democrat.

If he were to part the seas and walk to the holy land, then walked over the ocean on his way back, republicans would complain that he can't swim.

The right wing's reflexive is nothing personal or racially motivated, it is just pure, base partisanship. They would have treated any Democrat the same way.

Just wait; whichever Democrat gets elected in 2016 will be the most America hating lib to ever have lived according to the GOP noise machine.
 
2014-07-14 05:28:03 PM  
Sack up, Mr. President. Instead of whining about how they're picking on you, do something about it. You are the President of the goddamned United States. Use the powers of your office to apply sufficient pressure to get your way. Play hardball! Identify the senators and representatives that are giving you a hard time. Deny federal contracts and funds to their states. Use the intelligence apparatus to find out what they keep hidden and shine a light on it. There is so much he could do if he'd just get off his ass and start making their lives even a tenth as miserable as they've made his.

Which of his ideas, specifically, do you think is terrible. What is your alternative solution?

And in what way, specifically, do you find him to be an asshole?

Yeah, that must be why the GOP votes against their own bills after Obama announces his support.

Apple pies got apples in 'em. Red apples like that Johnny Appleseed feller went tossin' around--for free, mind--takin' seed dispersal jobs away from good American natural processes an' critters. Vanilla ice cream, on t'other hand, is white. Nuff said.

The emerging picture of Obama's tenure, after all, is one of a president who couldn't make Congress bend to his will to get things done.

WHY WON'T HE JUST LEAD!!?!?!??
 
2014-07-14 05:31:22 PM  
Duh.

I mean, seriously, farking duh.

President Obama is the last farking man on Earth to figure out Republicans hate him.

Can't wait 6 years from now when he figures out that they hate him because he's black.

And an American, as Republicans hate our country and all Americans, but that's another story.

I did not see the Rob Van Winkle angle to this story.
 
2014-07-14 05:32:30 PM  
Yep.  Of course it should have been obvious to him when the first order of business in the Senate by the GOP was to make him a one term POTUS.  You can't make "nice" with Republicans even if you agree with them because they will automatically switch to the other side of the issue even if it contradicts previously stated established Republican Party policy.

Heck, the negotiate deals with him where they get mostly what they want and still renege on it then they accuse Obama of being the one who will not compromise.
 
2014-07-14 05:32:54 PM

I can just har Rik screaming "I hate you and all you stand for!"

If Obama killed America's most infamous enemy, Republicans would complain about him spiking the football.

If Obama tried to get the Olympics games in the USA, Republicans would lobby against it.

And they'd fight for the rights of companies to deny coverage for cancer curing drugs for their employees, just as long as the company's owner truly believed that God gives cancer to people to punish them.

Blues_X: If Obama said that adults shouldn't eat their own poo, within twenty minutes a variety of idiots would be on TV with sh*t-stained mouths angry about him attacking their poo-eating rights.


Remember the pink slime controversy from 2012? Republicans got sickened like everybody else, but when Obama spoke out against it, three Republican governors, one of whom was Rick Perry, went down to a pink slime plant and stuffed their mouths with that shiat.

but whole: The right wing's reflexive is nothing personal or racially motivated, it is just pure, base partisanship. They would have treated any Democrat the same way.

They didn't act like this with Jimmy Carter, who was a pacifist, or Lyndon Johnson, who wanted to help poor people, or FDR, who started social security, or even JFK, who was an Irish Catholic.

The Republicans have long waged war on common sense. By normalizing the radical right wing, they radicalized the normals. Thus, the simplest, most sensible solutions like universal healthcare and alternative energy, become "too radical" for the country.

Especially since they all got together and agreed to oppose him every step of the way even before he was inaugurated.

"seven different Republican Senators" told him that "McConnell had demanded unified resistance." This was after the 2008 election but before Obama and Biden took office.

Dear Mr. President,

                               the Republicans could not care less about you, personally.  they only thing they care about is themselves and their (often ill gotten) wealth.  they view you as one of the hoards who want to take their wealth. they are not interested in a Democratic Republic or the middle/working classes,or even america because they know they can move to their overseas homes if the sh*t hits the fan here.  again, they care only about themselves and their wealth.  they will buy as many Legislatures as necessary to ensure that they are able to continue their system of stealing the bottom 98%'s wealth. as Lincoln said, Labor comes before wealth and deserves the higher regard. without labor there would be no wealth.
the wealthy (and the businesses they own) also own our "news". that way, they can continue to snow the majority of the population into voting for folks (like Romney) who are not a "threat" to them as they view you as.  remember, Romney got almost half the vote, so they have lots of folks conned into support criminals like themselves.  you, on the other hand, are not under their magic spell, that is why they want you out. that is why they do everything they can to make you fail so they can get their criminal wall street asshole into the white house.

don't take it personally, Mr. President.  It's just Business.

Sincerely,

A Concerned Citizen -- with a Brain who also happens to use it.  (and the wealth of information on the internet that no one owns and thus cannot control)

I'd rather have him explain what he thinks "With all due respect" means.

If Obama found the cure to cancer they would scream about how many hospitals he closed, and how many health care jobs he lost.

Because he's an empty suit masquerading as a usurping dictator.
