<quoted text>As one person so bluntly put it; "Obama's grasp of issues and his management style alone would have been deemed outstanding by any measure if he were a white man rather than black and any assertion to the contrary is disingenuous to say the least."
And I would say that Obama's inexperience, liberal policies, and lack of management capabilities would have made him undesirable for duty as POTUS regardless of racial heritage and any assertion to the contrary is not only disingenuous it is a deliberate attempt to deflect attention away from the fact the there are a large number of Americans who disagree with his policies and political philosophy for very legitimate reasons. It's so much easier for liberals to brush aside legitimate dissent when they can get away with labeling it racism.

Never in history has a POTUS been treated with the contempt and disrespect that has been shown Obama. If the hatred for him is not ethnic or racial, what is it? Policies...my ass....

Yeah but Michelle is a bit biased. When the president retires he can write "Memoirs of a Community Organizer."
What do you have against community organizers? Are you on of the 47% or 49% that believe ACORN stole the election for Obama?

I have known "factologist" a short time and so far he has been PROVEN a liar over 87 times. Being as you respect lies I would also have to say chances are you most likely a liar too. Those are the FACTS.

It's because he was a token with NO real experience for the job. His favorite vote was "present". DUH. He has never served in the military yet is commander in chief. He has never run a company or had to manage a budget or even held a head office yet he is in charge of the country. He was elected simply for being black and any other claim is an out right lie so yes his color is an issue. YOUR mistake is looking at him as a black man and not a man. If he were white the democrats would never looked at him twice. He just simply fit the agenda (half white, no real personal controversy, easy to control, not a free thinker, party loyal). I don't hate him or have contempt for him. I pity him for being used while being told he earned the office. He is nothing but a puppet being placed out front to draw fire from the real slime running this mess. If he really wants to help this country then kick the fools out of his office and stop trying to please the party and start saving the country.

There were 8 million background checks for all kinds of gun purchases in 4 months; a background check isnít required to purchase high capacity magazines. Just think of the number of private gun sales that didnít require a background check either.

The gun stores can't keep them on the shelves they are selling so fast. Obama is the greatest firearm salesman that ever lived.

The subject is "hate groups". Not someone who disagrees with his policies.

From wiki, definition"
"A hate group is an organized group or movement that advocates and practices hatred, hostility, or violence towards members of a race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation or other designated sector of society. According to the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), hate groups' "primary purpose is to promote animosity, hostility, and malice against persons belonging to a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or ethnicity/national origin which differs from that of the members of the organization. The Southern Poverty Law Center's (SPLC) definition of a "hate group" includes those having beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics."

You are right. Explain why.
Where should we start? Bills for gun control, Bills to renew AWB, Bills to confiscate certain weapons if the AWB is ever passed just to name a few. Chime in anytime with your own thoughts why 8 million background checks have been done since December.

I have never said that I hated him and I have never disrespected him. I simply don't like him because he's too liberal and he does not represent my views or my political philosophy, there's nothing racial or ethnic about it. Why is it so hard for you liberal drones to understand that there is a very large number of Americans who are not impressed with Mr. Obama's performance at all? It is my hope that next election a candidate will emerge who does represent my views and political philosophy but until then, Mr. Obama is POTUS. I'll just have to live with all of his policies that I disagree with until we can change them. And please keep your ass to yourself.

Since none of that definition applies to me, why do I keep getting called a racist when I say that Mr. Obama is too liberal and I don't agree with his leadership methods? Or that I don't like his political philosophy? Why is that?

You are as full of shite as a Christmas turkey. BTW did you support Baby Bush? How about Cheney? If any of what you say is true then why didn't The great white hope [Romney] win?

I take you at your word and have no problem with your differing opinions. You, unfortunately, do not represent the majority of cons. Many are in denial and do not believe he is the legitimate POTUS, duly elected by a majority. BTW many ideas put forth by Obama were Rep. ideas until his name was attached. You really don't need to fret your pretty little head over my ass it's in good hands.

Of course it would bother me, exactly the same way the predominately White gun-nuts of the NRA bother me. Anytime people arm themselves with the idea of killing other humans in mind it bothers the Hell out of me, be that a neighbor, the Feds or Iraqis. Self defense is one thing, planning, almost anticipating a chance to use one's arsenal is another.

AND YOU, all by yourself, can tell what lurks in the hearts of others. So why aren't you employed with the FBI...?...you could be their tracker dog.

But instead...because you don't have a clue...and like the true "frustrated control freak" that you are...you seek to infringe on the rights of all men in the slim hope of affecting crime.

So while you are pursuing this endeavor...please explain the FACT that violent crime, to include crime with a gun, has been going down for the past 20 years and the number of "LEGAL" guns on the street has increased with now 49, soon to be 50 States, with some form of concealed carry and more and more people walking the streets legally armed..?
