    Because he's a communist who wants to destroy personal sovereignty. I can never, and will never stand for that.

    I guess I am a nasty, ignorant, knuckle-dragging, Birther, global warmind (?) denier Republican. OOPS, I am not a Republican!
    President Obama constantly goes against most of the platform he had run on! Abortion, first he was against it, now he is all for the bill that makes a Doctor perform an abortion even if he is totally against it! He said he was against the government controlling public business yet guess who is controlling GM and His Health care reform bill is a total nightmare! He say's he isn't doing anything new, look after all the government has always controlled Medicare! Yea, and look at the mess it is in! Anyway, I don't want to spend all night complaining! You get the Gist!

    There are very few loyal presidents that ever deserve that respect.They have to earn it.It's not easily given,if it's not deserved.People who think all  presidents deserve our respect should remember the things many of our past presidents have done in their name to the japanese,the American Indian,the black slaves.
    Woodrow Wilson signed the law that made the Federal Reserve the controllers of our money supply.They  have the government printing office print up the money ,or they write checks and give the government a checkbook with so much credit ,when there is no money to back it up.YOU AND i AND OUR CHILDREN WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR IT,AND TO MAKE IT WORSE THEY CHARGE INTEREST ON IT,AND IT WASN'T EVEN THEIRS.
    iN my mind Kennedy and many of the founding fathers,like washington ,Thomas Jefferson,Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln,are about the only presidents I personally have a lot of respect for.

    I hate to say this, but I don't think you'll find much in the way of Obama supporters here.  I happen to agree with you, but most of the people her seem to be Obama-haters.

    Ralph always has something intelligent to say!

    Why should we accept a President who has forced this Country further into debt faster than any other President in the History of this Country? If the Republicans had not heard how Bush was as dumb as a box of rocks for 8 years maybe they would keep their voices lower, but noooooo, we had to listen to the left berate and lampoon a sitting President during war time, but for some reason we can't do the same thing! There is not enough bashing going on, we need to hammer the socialist more!

    Well looks like we have a full set  of liberal loonies here. That means there'll be whinning, crying and slandering. If you 'boohoo' don't agree 'boohoo' with us you're a bully 'boohoo' and a hater. For crying out whats wrong with you don't you have any American left in you? President Obama is our President, for better or worse. He deserves our support because we're Americans, but if he allows gay marriage thats it! I'll never talk good about him again!

    I can only have respect for a president who clearly shows his respect for the office and the people who put him there by living up to his political views before he got there.One of the reasons he got into office in the first place is because of his... read more

    I can respect the Presidency and the position of such as Commander in Chief. However, I do not have to respect the policies, beliefs or stance of Obama.
    If you feel he should be stood up for, do so in writing. Come up with strong, positive statements that can't be argued against. Maybe then people will begin to change their minds.
    Until then, I will continue to base my belief on facts. The facts prove that Obama has gone against his own word. Making a stand for policy and inacting policy are two different things.
    Oh, and by the way - standing up for what we believe in is not 'whinning'. It is using our freedom of speech as an American. And, yes I am a proud Republican American!

    I am not sure that he is communist although some of his ties are very questionable!  I do not believe that his policies are good for this country either!  I realize that I am not the only person in this country, and there are several different views.  We are in a majority rules nation and the majority has spoken.  His ratings have dropped even in his own party.  As for as standing up for our leader, I gave him benefit of doubt after against my vote he was elected and I see nothing he has done, but put us down to other countries.  If you want to label us as knuckledraggers and whatever else just because we exercise our freedom of speech that is fine.  If upholding the constitution makes me and others like me unamerican then I guess I am unamerican.  Tell me what are those who do not support the constitution?  Also check your records he does support gay marriage and the killing of innocent children.  Who has most of his funding came from when he ran for office?  ACORN such a credible group. Maybe we should resort to more debate and facts and less name calling.  We all have an opnion or do we?

    His track record is one of lies and deception.  Case in point... Obama told the public he would be one place, then went to a secret meeting with the Bilderberg Group.  There is a difference between "Bashing" and exposing the deception.

    When you educate yourself to his agenda and his deception the reasons "why" become evident.

    Obama is currently singing the praises of Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke. Bernanke is the very individual that opened the flood gates to free money for Bankers.  Bernanke is Wall Streets best friend.  Bernanke is the CAUSE not the solution to the economic disaster we are in.  Yet Obama is his biggest supporter.  At the same time Obama says he wants Bank Reform.  Clearly the two are incompatible.

    Hear hear all you who speak the truth....the lies, the deception, the trillions of dollars worth of debt, the hiring of communists for aides, the snubbing of our long ally Great Britain, the aligning of our country with the Nazis....condoning things which are against the Word of God on which this country was founded......And I am not a liberal loonie.....I know the WORD and I STAND on that WORD   DOES HE??????

    There are no "haters" in here, just American Born and Bred Citizens, unlike someone in the oval office who has to hide his place of birth...He is not an American people...wake up....And a non American has no right to hold the office he does...nor to print and spend trillions of dollars of it nor align our country with known terrorists....
    Does this answer your question...no , I am not a hater, I stand for the truth of this nation and it's solidity, which is being thrown in the trash......I pray for this person on a daily basis because my God commands me to.....BUT my prayer is that the person holding this office turn our country back to God....which he is definitely NOT doing.....!!!!!!!!!! 

    As far as GAYS.....he publicly praised a man for being gay.....and is doing nothing to the states which are allowing gay marriages   which is clearly against the WORD.....he has the power to overturn this stuff....for lack of a word I will not use in a hub nor hub answer....so this is standing up for the gays....arrrrgggghhhhhhh!!!!!

    becuase, we have the right as per the first amendment and a duty to question and speak out against what we perceive to wrong or unconstitutional. 

    with out that right, we would be back to the days, of Leaders having people arrested for speaking out against the Government .

    like say Nazi germany the USSR, PRC, North Korea, some MIddle eastern Countrys.  any where Sharia law is in force. 

    Loyalty is great when the person your loyal to deserves the respect and devotion.  with out that the followers of a leader are sycophant's. who are loyal as long as they make something off it.

    Why are liberals whining about their wonderful President being criticized?  For eight years I heard a wonderful man bashed and blamed for everything.  Most people have forgotten that two years before Pres. Bush left office, the Democrats were in charge in Congress...and that included Obama who was a senator then. The Dems are responsible for our financial melt down, NOT George W. Bush!!! Unemployment was at 5.5% when Bush left office...now what is it...9.5!!!  Barney Franks said that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were not in trouble.  President Bush and John McCain told Congress something needed to be done and this was the answer they got.  So don't whine about Obama being criticized and getting no support.  He has an agenda to ruin this country and he is doing a really good job of it so far.  I have respect for the office but NO respect for the man who is very unfortunately holding that office now.  Why won't he release his birth certificate and college records??? What is he hiding? 

    Americans chose not to support George Bush and none of you liberals whined about that.  So stop whining about Obama being criticized...He is governing against the majority...he is craming laws and bills down Americans' throats that nobody wants.  This election cannot come fast enough.
