[I posted this in another forum earlier, just wanted to post it here to get some more feedback] -

Not trying to start arguments or anything, I'm genuinely curious why there is so much hatred for this man. What are the reasons? And are those reasons sound? The Obama-care thing, ok yeah, I can understand why some people really hate that. That's fine.

But calling him Hitler (?), saying he wasn't really born in the U.S.A., saying he's a communist/socialist, that he has an Islamic agenda for the U.S., blaming him for basically EVERTHING that's wrong in the country (especially economically) when it's clearly not all his fault, etc etc... Where do people get this stuff from??

I mean there's people who want to kill him for God sake -

If you don't like him, then fine. Obviously he has not been a very effective leader. But..... c'mon, really??

Why would people think that a President would be allowed to gain power who was not born in the U.S. and who has a communist and Islamic agenda? People who become President are chosen by election, but before that they are put into place by people and groups who have money, Democrat or Republican, it doesn't matter. WHY would they choose someone who wants to turn the United States into a Socialist/Communist Islamic state???? WHY would they risk choosing someone who was not born in the U.S., and therefore is not legally entitled be to President? What would be the advantage to anybody of having a non-USA born president? It just doesn't make any sense to me.

And also, I realize that when Bush Jr. was in power there were people who hated him just as much. But I guess to me the grievances of those people seemed to be much more founded on actual, substantive facts than with these extreme right-wing type people.

Seems to me that so many of us don't even look at FACTS anymore. That we don't even know the difference between what's real and what is just rumour and conjecture. Or at least it's difficult to sort through all the bullshit. Democrat vs. Republican, Liberal vs. Conservative, we need to move beyond that crap.
All it does is divide people into a never-ending squabble.

But anyway, what are the reasons? There must be some Obama haters here?
