    Many have been the posts on BB chastising folks here who just plain flat don't like ANYTHING about the "0".

    The big talking point is always "I will challenge him on the issues, and not just condemn the man because he is who he is.", or some variation of same.

    How many times does a dog have to bite you before you condemn him for what he is, rather than taking each bite as a separate issue????

    C'mon folks , get real! This man is a disaster for our country and he should be opposed for what/who he is - not just on every individual issue, lest you get bogged down and fail to see the larger picture!!

    So far he is doing precisely what he indicated he would pursue prior to '08, and the only surprise I see is the vigor with which he is doing it; I honestly expected him to be a bit more suave in his approach to lull the masses; but lulling doesn't seem to be a problem---!​

    I think you make quite the valid point.

    When our disagreements with BHO are so fundamental--at such a foundational level--we can assume, almost as a "default setting"--that if BHO is in favor of something...that we should immediately be skeptical.

    There is almost no common ground whatsoever, and thus virtually no reason to say, "oh, he's an honorable man." Honorable men don't wreck the greatest experiment of freedom in history. Honorable men don't advocate the dissolution of individual freedoms. Honorable men aren't in favor of murdering babies in their mother's wombs. Honorable men don't lie to the country they lead.


    This was over the line. I know several good dogs. :D :D

    He is a socialist ideologue and an economic illiterate. . I have condemned him many times for being just that. Most of his policies are result of his ideology. I believe that, if you condemn one, you condemn the other

    President Obama did receive a majority of the votes in November 2008, so evidently there are many who like him!

    Not nearly as many now as then.

    They were duped and made fools of.

    So are you saying that Germany made a wise decision by standing behind Hitler?

    You are good at reading what is not written. I never said you should shut up, but now that you mention it...

    Watch it, R.S.. Even Limbaugh had a problem with pain-killing meds. You are just lashing out. If you can't come up with an intelligent answer to a challenge, just say so.

    Laura Ingraham nailed it.....the left expects us to shut up, and just be in awe.

    I don't know what pain-killing meds have to do with this thread, but I never told any of you super conservatives to shut up.

    Of all the people here to criticize someone for lashing out, you certainly aren't the one who should do it.

    What it is is you cannot answer several good challenges, so you lash out. Should everyone have shut up about the wars after Bush won ? Seems like that is what you are saying we should do, now. And that Germany analogy is excellent. You should either answer it, or admit it is a great counter-point to your argument.
