102. I'd like to see
an end to the blanket namecalling. It is obvious to me that our President has some real enemies in the Republican Party. So what is gained by allowing any and all criticisms of policy to be greeted by bullies painting all critics as 'haters'? That is a vile word to toss. Words mean something. Hate is a specific term, not some poetry that means both good Democrats and Rush. Folks who worked for, paid for and voted for Obama should never be accused of hate. Hate. A word of great power, treated here as if it were 'hello'. If words like hate and love become devoid of meaning, we fail our language, and language makes our law and our lives. Language is a virus from outer space. DU has a bad rash from it too.
