A thought experiment, and challenge for the political posters on our forums.
Original post made by M on Aug 6, 2009
Yet, I wonder if my point is even visible to the majority of those who are up in arms over whatever the Obama administration is doing. I will be blunt, the point is that it is ok when your team does something but if the other team does the same thing it is not acceptable.
With that said, and after reading countless posts and opinions from the conservative side I is perfectly clear that "the right" does not have any real problem with the Obama administration, their tactics, or even the majority of what they wish to do. It is simply that "the right" (or at least most of the right wing pesters on this forum and many other forums) do not like President Obama, and refuse to accept that he is the president of our nation. Is it because he is half black? Is it simply because he is not from your political party? Is it because he doesn't wear an orange tie? Whatever it is tell us.
I would like to know the real honest truth. Be anonymous, use a fake name. Tell the truth, the real raw truth that you may not even acknowledge to yourself. I will say that I doubt I will see any responses, as usual. Surprise me, but if you are feeling the need to either post slanderous contemptuous, or hostile posts don't bother, that is not what this is about. If your intent is to produce more party line vomitous and detritus again, this is not the point so please don't bother. Nor do I want to see "The Left" produce party line detritus or go on long diatribes about how awful the opposition is as that is also not the point.
I would like to see some honest answers, they don't have to be popular, they don't have to even be socially acceptable, they only have to be honest. Recycled cable news sound bites are not needed we can watch look at he news for that.
