48. What I don't understand is

I keep hearing people talk about how people like Obama personally even if they don't agree with him politically- but which policies don't they agree with him on, really? Health care reform I guess was the obvious one at one point but its support has grown, particularly after SCOTUS upheld it in June, conferring a certain amount of legitimacy it didn't seem to have before. It certainly took the air out of Republican efforts to repeal it. The stimulus was viciously maligned but most people agree that it helped and that government needs to invest/spend more right now to help the economic recovery instead of cutting spending. Most people, like President Obama, believe that taxes need to be higher on the wealthy and support a more "balanced" approach to deficit reduction. Most support President Obama's foreign policy in general. Most people support his defense of social programs in the face of Republican efforts to defund them. Most people support compromise between the two parties, something that President Obama has done (almost to a fault). So, WHAT exactly is that most people "disagree" with President Obama on (beside the Tea Partiers of course)?
