He was everybody’s favorite when we elected him, and now it seems even many dems are turning against him. Any ideas?
Views so far:
Because he turned out to be the opposite of what he said he was to get elected. That and his war on our rights. He would av fit in well in the ussr.
Main reason are his anti freedom policies and lack of vision. He comes across like a community activist not a leader.Oh and then all his lies. And spin. And betrayal of everything he campaigned on. I voted for him. I switched to libertarian after a year or two of his nonsense.
If you are like me, your doubts slowly turned to worries by about 150-200 days into his presidency. After a year, you were puzzled and increasingly critical… but still generally supportive. Another year… and you found yourself at a crossroads. This way: continue supporting and believing in his intentions and abilities. That way: continue questioning and withdrawing your support, all the while researching, studying, trying to understand what’s really going on. And you couldn’t help thinking of just one word when it came to Obama: hypocrisy!
If you are like me, you picked the latter option. Obama ran out of excuses for me within 2-3 years – which is much longer than it should have been, considering how much research I do, and how I pride myself on being reasonably well informed and capable of critical thinking. As it turns out, I wasn’t the only one. Not only republicans and independendents who once supported him now started abandoning him, but also growing numbers of democrats.
Sure, he maintains staunch and vocal support from Hollywoord, mainstream media and his sponsors – the mega corporations and banks – but the grassroots are now seriously eroded. While today, at the end of 2013, there are still millions of blind followers and ardent believers, truth be told, Obama is on his last legs as far as popular support goes. And that’s a real shame.
Even as pro-Obama activists and celebrities (many of whom we all tend to love and admire) do their best to staunchly support the President – the rest of us has had it up to here. Even his charm and genuine likeability don’t seem to cut it anymore.
I’m 100% positive it’s NOT racism as Oprah would have you believe. Perhaps I live in a bubble, but the vast majority of the people I know are definitely NOT racist, not even in the slightest. Obama couldn’t have won if it wasn’t for serious and color-blind “white” support. The few idiots who hate him because of race are a tiny margin and couldn’t possibly be responsible for this situation.
So, the question is WHY?
Apologists sometimes say that his hands are tied and that he “can’t” deliver, though he still “wants” to. If that is true, then he is a puppet. On a human level, it’s understandable how someone can act out of fear of his bosses. But that would mean he’s a fake! And if that’s NOT true, then he’s a consumate liar and manipulator. There’s no room for misunderstanding when he said “more transparency”, for example, it actually meant “far less transparency”. On balance, a bit of both is almost certainly true, i.e. he’s both beholden to the powers that be, AND he actually didn’t intend on delivering on his slogans.
If, as his apologists maintain, he either was “forced” – then we’re back to the first argument. And if, as his other apologists say, he “IS doing what is right – then his sense of “right” is at odds not only with the MAJORITY of Americans – and people around the world – but also with simple morality.
Political manipulation, fear-mongering, even blackmail of would-be opponents. But also his still-appealing image as a “really nice guy” – as a result of which the masses are still unwilling to go all the way and demand that he be impeached.
There’s also the continued chorus of support from the mainstream media and Hollywood, and people are simply confused by the mixed messages. On the one hand all these clever and respectable people continue supporting the President, explaining and excusing his actions – on the other hand – there are all these things we can all see with our own lying eyes that just don’t work as it said on the tin.
And so, what could have been the most beloved, respected and inspiring president – has become the opposite. And the show ain’t over yet. Was he set up to fail by his backers? Or was this the “real” Mr O. all along? Regardless, we’ve still got until 2016 to see what else is up his sleeve. But if his war on whistleblowers has been successful, we won’t know what it is until it’s too late.
My reasons for not liking Obama are many. My son was born in Hawaii in 1964, and
everything old “Big O” has said about being born there is an out and out lie.
The ‘Long Form’ birth cert. does NOT exist. They list his father as being born in
Kenya, and the country was not called Kenya at that time. Michelle went to Mandela’s funeral in a beautiful dress ~~ BUT ~~ it was NOT fit for a funeral.
WHY is it that they attended a church when he tells the world that he is a Muslim?
WHERE did someone with the likes of his seeming poverty, come out of the weeds to
attend college (it costs a lot) or owns such a house as they have in Chicago??
All of their records are sealed ~~ does that mean the school records of the two
girls are sealed??
These are questions which deserve answers.
