I have been disappointed in Obama many times......

But I have not heard ONE SINGLE VALID complaint from the GOP about him. The crap they spew forth is all lies! They blame him for things caused by Bush or for things that were not fixed because they blocked them!
The "Obama Care" attack makes no sense to me as there is nothing bad about it.
The GOP knows that the GOP voters will believe any lie they say.
I cannot wait till Obama can start countering these lies!

4. Agreed. Nothing but lies and dog whistles. It's all they have.

I've firmly believed that since he announced his run for the Presidency, anyone who had the goods to beat him would have produced them in a nanosecond.

The GOP contenders cannot say one thing substantive about what actual steps they will take to make things better. All they have are the empty "I'm going to save the country", "We're going to restore America" soundbites.

The thing is, that all sounds great to their unquestioning supporters. The Obama campaign needs to press them to put up some substance and explain exactly WHAT they're going to do.

6. it is an excellent point. I have criticism of Obama a well but the things they say are ridiculous

I received an email from someone telling me to watch fox news..ha..because the truth about obamas 'totalitarian socialism' background and all kinds of other sordid stuff was going to be examined in depth during a special program. His 20 year relationship with Reverend Wright was also going to be highlighted. It was crazy stuff..I just dont know how to respond because I've got issues with the president. These, however, are not worth anyones time.

Those are things dumb RWers say about the President.

I can think of no better GOTV motivator than listening to the lies spewing out of the GOP candidates' mouths.

16. Who is this imaginary candidate the GOP thinks they're up against?!

The shit they lob at the President will get shredded come debate time. "Obama has waged a war on free-enterprise?!" "He's the most dangerous President of our lifetime?!" This BS will get vaporized in a debate with Obama.

21. they call him a radical liberal

that is how completely insane they are. He may lean sometimes lean towards "liberal" but Obama is certainly not radical.

He governed like GHWB but they gave him no credit. To them, he's a Marxist.

25. The people whom don't think he's a centrist or believe he is a radical leftist socialist

are severely delusional, just like people whom also believe that he has been "divisive" for the country. That's what I find strangest about this whole "Americans Elect" project: We pretty much already have a centrist POTUS who can straddle both sides of the political fence. Of course, I also suspect that the "Americans Elect" project has other, less public motivations but that's beside the point.

27. Which is why we should never have bothered with pandering to them in the first place.

They're going to call us the devil no matter what we do. Might as well give them a few *real* reasons!

23. I totally agree with you

It's really aggravating, frankly, to hear what they spew against Obama and knowing that their "base", along with some "indies", eagerly lap all that BS up and treat it as gospel even though they don't take even a microsecond to THINK about what they're hearing and whether or not it is actually true. They also have nothing substantive to attack him over nor are they actually even proposing anything substantive to deal with all of the "problems" they cite other than simply electing one of them POTUS.

28. DURec

It has reached levels of absurdity I previously didn't believe was possible.

The participants on the stage (and talking heads in the Media) certainly KNOW they are lying,
and certainly KNOW they are spreading ignorance & hate.
If they had the ability to feel SHAME,
they would be overwhelmed by it.

Even more frightening is the audience's response to the most despicable lies.

AND, it is getting WORSE.
