And I disagree with your point.

To say that 2/3 of the posts are against Obama requires categorizing anything other than complete trust and affection as therefore being against Obama.

To say that no one is trying to suppress dissent is to ignore the ad hominem attacks on dissenters, and the ridicule and trivializing of their remarks by falsely portraying the remarks as destructive or illegitimate in some way. That is the exact way that dissent is suppressed, as we should all know from having watched the right wingers raise it to an art form over the last couple of decades. "They are tearing down Obama!" is not much different from "they are tearing down America!"
