Folks! What good do we do when we express contempt and disdain for those who disagree with us? I can't think of any. Sharp disagreements are to be expected. But can't we engage in those disagreements while recognizing and remembering the inestimable value (to us!) of the folks on the other side? I am a strong supporter of Mr. Obama, but I want to know why the folks who dislike him dislike him. I want to know their (your) reasons. I want to know how they (you) see things--not to hammer them (you), but to understand. And I appreciate your replies and perspectives. I also ask your patience and forgiveness for the Obama supporters who say insulting and demeaning things in these comment sections.

You aren't going to find too many who will talk to you here in any civil tone.

I don't like Obama or Romney. Fact is, I didn't like McCain when I voted for him four years ago, but I was afraid of what Obama would do. Unlike many people, I haven't suffered under Obama. But, I lived through Carter and that was no walk in the park. I remember the gas lines and interest rates. So, I have things in perspective.

I AM VOTING AGAINST OBAMA. The fact that the GOP is my other choice does not mean I am voting for Romney, whom I do not like, trust, admire, respect, or think has the first clue as to what to do.

Thank you, Summers. I appreciate your response. I presume you think Obama and Carter share some of the same (highly objectionable) weaknesses? I, too, remember Carter. And when he was president, I really didn't like his policies. Reagan was my man back then. And I was ecstatic when he was elected in '80 and then again in '84. In the last 24 years, though, I have revised my views on both Carter and Reagan. Carter has grown on me--not just as a good human being but as a president. And Reagan--though I still love him--has come to seem less and less the good president I took him to be.

Obama is a murderer and thief. What's not to dislike?

Okay, NullifyNow. Explain the "murderer and thief" charge. I'm not with you (yet).

He has to be talking about Libya and the Arabian Peninsula, i.e., no authorization from Congress. With Congressional authorization the libs said Bush should be tried. It's just pay-back; and, you know what that is...

I like anti constitutional socialist. same thing as a lawless liar.

And now, a word from Mitt Romney:


Some conservatives will bristle at Romney's assertion that "both President Obama and I care about poor and middle class families."  Democrats rarely afford Republicans this benefit of the doubt.  Indeed, they often say that Republicans hate the poor and want to decimate the middle class -- all for the nefarious purpose of enriching their "millionaire and billionaire" buddies.  This has been a central thrust of Obamaworld's attacks on Mitt Romney over the last year....
