For the Obama-haters, think about this: The President nominated Kagan & Sotomayor for the SC.
Would you like a second term of such nominations, or are you okay with the Samuel Alitos a Repuke president would nominate?

If you cut off your noses, you'll spite ALL of our faces.

Obama in 2012. :patriot:

1. Couldn't agree with you more.
The Supreme Court alone is reason enough for us to move heaven and earth to reelect the president, retain (and hopefully increase) Democratic hold on the Senate, and of course take back the House.

5. Yes this is always what it comes down to
"OK, both parties are full of a bunch of morons that find any way to help corporations at the expense of our country and our citizens, but at least Democratic Presidents don't put complete crazies up on the Supreme Court."

That definitely gets a lot of people out into voting booths to support the Democratic ticket.

6. Most of the haters around here are already set. They don't really have a stake in the future.

The demographic is obvious. The same group that yell at clouds sit and bitch here all day every hour. They're pissed off and someone needs to know about it. If it means we revert back to the Alitos and Roberts of the world who cares. Their productive days are behind them. They're just pissed off.

7. I can't believe you are using the term "haters" and actually expecting someone to
think honestly and respectfully about what you are saying. You are just flinging insults. What is the point?

13. I hope you say the same to those who like "apologists" and "fan club" and "sycophants"
Edited on Sun Sep-04-11 07:54 PM by CakeGrrl
Consistency rather than hypocrisy and all...

By the way, what term would you apply to someone who is now convinced that President Obama is "the enemy"?

And yes, I DID see someone say that.

9. Unrec for the Obama -hater accusation.
I would think that some are above this sort of name-calling.

10. Be assured when I'm in the voting booth
the shrill voices of fear-based coercion will be my last consideration.

14. I don't HATE Obama
I very much want him to succeed, and I LIKED his SC noms. But the REPUKES ARE WORSE meme is redundant and insulting. I WANT A BETTER DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT.
