39. no one attacks Obama
I don't see anyone attacking Obama. Some self-appointed "defenders of Obama" are attacked once in a while, but even that is rare.

People have specific criticisms to make about specific decisions and actions, and those are usually well supported and well reasoned. You may disagree with them, of course.

If it seems to some people that there is "too much criticism" of the administration, that could be for one of two reasons. Either there are some people looking for any excuse to criticize the administration, as you and others claim, or perhaps there actually have been a lot of decisions by the administration that are at odds with what people here stand for.

I think that for the most part the critics of the administration are consistent - they are still opposed to the exact same things they were opposed to under the last administration, and are expressing their opposition the exact same way and for the same reasons. You may not oppose those things that they oppose, you may not agree with the critics, but they are being consistent. The inconsistency lies with those who opposed certain things when the last administration did them, but now defend and support those same things when this administration does them.

Therefore, the logical conclusion is that this administration is in fact doing many things that people here oppose, have always opposed, and this is why there is criticism here of the administration, and it is not the case that people are merely looking for things in order to be able to criticize the administration.
