Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

*FOR THE BOG* I refuse to apologize for supporting Obama on a Democratic site.

I will not apologize to anyone who accuses me (or other like-minded posters) of shilling and being a blind follower when he has started fixing what he inherited from his predecessor in '08 in spite of GOP obstruction in Congress. I will not apologize to any Republicans, Libertarians, Greens, 'Baggers, Snowden supporters, or any infiltrators who may be on here.
I'm out.

5. Those that accuse us of blindly following, don't or can't understand that

you can support him, or anyone, while not agreeing with everything they say or do.

That being said...

I am sooooo glad that we got someone in office that doesn't go off half-cocked every time there is an emergency or event. He thinks things through and that is a foreign concept to some people.

The fact that he has gotten so much done despite the constant obstructionism and outright hate exhibited by the right and teabaggers is a testament to his character.

So HELL YES I support and defend President Obama.

Because there are so many racist assholes that want him to fail, even if it means that Americans, or the rest of the world is harmed.

All because of the hate they have for him. No matter what anyone says different. Their actions and words have shown it over and over again.

In spite of the dillholes, he has managed to get a couple of things done.



I shudder to think what the country and world would be like if the rethugs had gotten into power.

16. Well ...

would agree if I believed those making the accusations really cared about agree with what he did/does or not. I have long believed they were/are not looking for areas of agreement, only the seeking a grievance and out-rage, even if they have/had to make it up.

19. And they stick to their lies no matter how stupid or idiotic it makse them look.

As long as it's 180 degrees from what President Obama or any Democrat, wants or says.

They could give a rats ass who it affects and hurts.

13. Remember when a poster here was whining because DU was 'too partisan'?

 

omg LOL.

I think of that when things are getting me down from DU and laugh my ass off at the pure ignorance.

17. Yeah ...

it makes my laugh when I think of the horror that is supporting a Democratic President on a website called DemocraticUnderground.



But then, again, those making those claims were/are, largely, NOT Democrats ... they are "liberals", "progressives" and/or "libertarians", that might (or might not) have voted for Democrats ... despite all their claims to have donated to, campaigned for, and having voted for President Obama, twice.

11. Hooray for you!

Remember adolescence? when kids thought it was cool and made them look smart to poop on the world? Well, guess what - some of the people who've been on your case are stuck in that stage. They haven't reached adulthood yet no matter the years under their belt. Try to live as a beacon to those around you who still haven't seen the light. You'll never run out of work!

12. Never came close to even thinking that.

 

Ever.

This President is the best thing that has happened to the country in a long while and that is making some folks c.r.a.z.y. for various reasons. I laugh.

The more time goes on and the more I see of what kind of guy this Obama is, the more I like.

15. I see no reason to apologize ...

In fact, I proudly stand by my support, as it has given me a lot of "I told you so" moments and suspect that I will have plenty more over the next 2 years.
