I found myself saying something along the lines of "You dummies. This guy is special. You're very, very fortunate to have him in the WH".
This is just so terribly wrong. Special? Nah. Just another liberal Democrat that thinks he is the only one that can save the world and anyone that thinks otherwise must be an idiot.
Among the many reasons Obama pissed off right-wingers was the fact that he was so scandal-free. They tried to hang Reverend Wright around his neck, but that just made Obama deliver possibly the best speech on race relations in the US, ever. They never could find that one
thing that proved he was corrupt,dirty, un American, unfaithful, lazy, un-patriotic, ANYTHING. And God knows they tried. Just drives them crazy that he is so clean. Upstanding citizen. Harvard. Good Father and husband. Hard working.
But the fact they could never scandalize him is just one
reason they hate him. They also hate that he really IS special. President of the Harvard Law Review. Nobel Prize winner. Twice elected President. Formidable politician. Outstanding orator. He is the epitome of the uppity Negro they could just never teach his "place".
And they will never admit it, but Obama took the WORST abuse any sitting president has had to take in modern history, and came through it smiling, strong and in good spirits. He started out his presidency reaching out to Republicans. My main complaint with him is that he took too long to learn that they didn't have his, or the country's best interests at heart. They just wanted him
to fall. He didn't. And they hate him for that, too.
