Why? Have you ever read anything about his background and associations beyond the crap spoon fed on MSNBC?
Apparently not as much as you. See, I'm a real person... I look at what really affects me, and in turn the US.
I don't sit around and try to turn over every little rock in every single persons background... I didn't do it with Bush, I didn't do it with Clinton, I didn't do it with the elder Bush. I don't do it with every senator or congressman.
I listen to what they are telling me and if they lie, then I say so... I don't give anyone a free pass, but I don't take the time to spend countless hours reading opinions of every single other person on the planet about people either.
I take them at their word, until I see they lied... period.
Does Obama do shit I don't like... Fuck dude... You know he does. I'm no shill and he's done tons of things I'm personally angry about.
That said, the way you describe the guy is just bullshit... You take the worst opinions from other people and tyhen because you don't like someone you use them to fit whatever description of someone you see fit.
You do it with Pelosi, you do it with Obama, Hillary... You name it.
That's why I think most people on this board, are full of shit... Most people just shill on whichever side you want to.
You talk about Obama kneepadders, but really, you're just a kneepadder of a different sort, unable to look at real fact and discuss policies. Instead, you turn to the communist, socialist, blah blah blah shit, when we all know Obama is easily a capitalist... He's made tons of money just like other capitalists do. But because he's Obama, you put some monicker on him which is hardly accurate.
The guy does shit I don't like:
The offshore drilling stance.
Bombing of Libya
Not pulling troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq.
Resigning the Patriot Act
His fiscal spending and in turn how the economy is still going.
I can't stand those things... And if someone jumps up and actually says they are against them from the Republican side and doesn't go down the "anti-abortion super christian neo-con road" then I would probably vote for them.
However, most of the people the Republicans put up are still that... I just can't get on that train.
I'm tired of my country being run by the kooks on both sides, but apparently only the kooks do the talking.
