"We are here to DEFEAT the Republicans"

We SHOULD be here to stop the dismantling of our constitution, our basic civil rights, and our economy.

The republicans need to be defeated in order to do that, but that's not nearly good enough.

If our country is ruined by "friends" instead of enemies, how will we be better off?

But the issues that Obama gets the real heat for are exactly the 'no-wiggle-room' ones

* Indefinite detention

* Extra-judicial killings (including US citizens)

* Continuing wars that were started on lies

No one should ever support those things under any circumstances ever.

Those things mark a bad person and a bad president.

Saying "yes but he's nice to his mother and likes dogs" or some such thing does not factor in.

"He represents every citizen in the country, not just liberals"

What about white supremacists? Does he have to implement what they want because he "represents every citizen"?

No.

Being the president of the whole country does NOT mean carrying out the wishes of evil people.
