Why are Obama supporters incapable of having an objective discussion about their candidate?
Can anyone provide a hint of proof that he can cross party lines, be a Strong leader, strengthen the economy, be tough on terrorism? I don't think he can succeed at any of those objectives.
Liberal supporters of Obama are able to provide not sensical, poorly thought out, knee jerk, emotional tirades to their candidate being questioned.

I copied this from a previous blog. Someone had a minute to do their homework and questioned him on many issues:
Maybe its because of his laundry list of lies:
1.) Selma Got Me Born - LIAR, your parents felt safe enough to have you in 1961 - Selma had no effect on your birth, as Selma was in 1965.
2.) Father Was A Goat Herder - LIAR, he was a privileged, well educated youth, who went on to work with the Kenyan Government.

4.) My Family Has Strong Ties To African Freedom - LIAR, your cousin Raila Odinga has created mass violence in attempting to overturn a legitimate election in 2007, in Kenya. It is the first widespread violence in decades.
5.) My Grandmother Has Always Been A Christian - LIAR, she does her daily Salat prayers at 5am according to her own interviews. Not to mention, Christianity wouldn’t allow her to have been one of 14 wives to 1 man.
6.) My Name is African Swahili - LIAR, your name is Arabic and ‘Baraka’ (from which Barack came) means ‘blessed’ in that language. Hussein is also Arabic and so is Obama.

8.) My School In Indonesia Was Christian - LIAR, you were registered as Muslim there and got in trouble in Koranic Studies for making faces (check your own book).
9.) I Was Fluent In Indonesian - LIAR, not one teacher says you could speak the language.
10.) Because I Lived In Indonesia, I Have More Foreign Experience - LIAR, you were there from the ages of 6 to 10, and couldn’t even speak the language. What did you learn, how to study the Koran and watch cartoons.
11.) I Am Stronger On Foreign Affairs - LIAR, except for Africa (surprise) and the Middle East (bigger surprise), you have never been anywhere else on the planet and thus have NO experience with our closest allies.
12.) I Blame My Early Drug Use On Ethnic Confusion - LIAR, you were quite content in high school to be Barry Obama, no mention of Kenya and no mention of struggle to identify - your classmates said you were just fine.

45.) I Have Always Been Against Iraq - LIAR, you weren’t in office to vote against it AND you have voted to fund it every single time, unlike Kucinich, who seems to be out gutting you Obama. You also seem to be stepping back from your departure date - AGAIN.

52.) University Of Chicago Hospital Pay Is Fair - LIAR, your wife’s pay raise was nearly 150% her already bloated rate and the hospital is a Non-Profit Hospital, which made $100,000,000 in the last 3 years. They overcharge blacks VS whites for services, and overcharge everyone in general by 538%!
53.)I Barely Know Rezko - Only 5 Billed Hours - LIAR, you have known him for 17 years, and decided to do a real estate deal with him during a time when he was proven to be under investigation. Despite this, you divided your property and had them take off $300K before the mortgage problems started. Then Rezko’s wife buys the lot beside it that you can’t afford, saving you $625,000.
54.) My Donations Have Been Checked Thoroughly - LIAR, you only gave back Hsu ($72K) and Rezko ($150K) their money when publicly called on their involvement in your campaigns.
55.) My Church Is Like Any Other Christian Church - LIAR, your church is so extreme, the pastor who married you, Rev. Wright, just got done blaming the US for 9/11 and named Louis Farrahkan their person of the year.
56.) I Disagree With My Church All The Time - LIAR, you still have yet to repudiate Wright, who married you and your wife, and you still donate large sums of money to assist the church in furthering its message - hatred and revenge. You donated in 2006 alone, $22,500 to the church that you so terribly disagree with. That is nearly $500 PER WEEK - that sure is disagreement, Senator Obama.
57.) I Have Clean Connections Despite Rezko - LIAR, you are not only connected to Exelon and Rezko, you are also connected to Hillary PAC supporter Mr. Hsu, AND an Iraqi Billionaire of ill repute, Nadhmi Auchi, who ripped off people in the Food For Oil, Iraqi deal. Seems Mr. Auchi may have helped Obama buy his million dollar property long before Obama had millions of dollars. Wonder what favors Mr. Auchi expects, when Obama leaves Iraq free to be taken over by special interests such as him.
58.) I never heard sermons like Rev. Wright’s, that have been in videos all day, You Tube - LIAR! 3 days later during your Mea Culpa BS speech you said “Did I hear controversial statements while I sat in that church? Yes I did.”

Please note: Obama co-wrote or co-sponsored bills. what ones has he introduced. Presidents do this. It is lonely at the top. He has to say yes(pass) or(veto) but there is no take a pass on anything. If a act of war is declared on us as in 1942, will he take a pass or hang a white flag. If he criticizes Washingtons way of doing things, how is he bringing it together.. He sounds more like a troublemaker than a peacemaker when it comes to business. If he saw things wrong with the idea of going to Iraq, why did he not point out the errors during discussion in the senate and then vote on them. Answer these and there are more. What kind of change will he bring or will we be a new world order?.

No one knows what a presidential canidate is capable of until they are able to show us. Either we agree with their views or we don't. Any presidential canidate can say one thing and do another once elected. Look at Governor Charlie Christ. He promised voters alot and didn't follow through once he won.
As for liberal supporters of Obama having a objective discussion, your quetion entailes derogotory remarks towards supporters. That is like I am having a debate with some and want to sit down and talk to them peacefully but before that I call them out of their name and make generalizations about them.
If you want a objective discussion post a question that dosen't insult the other party and maybe you will get a objective discussion. I get so tired of people saying Obama supporters are followers, young, and rooting for him because someone told them to. Have you sat down and thought maybe his supporters are rooting for him because they actually agree with his views and don't see him backstabbing him once elected in the white house and going against everything he promised.
- The Sh*tLv 61 decade ago
No his supporters can't give you proof of anything. Ask a question like this and they either avoid it like the plague or they say something stupid like "He's better than Hillary" or "He's a uniter" or "I'd take him over McCain any day". They just have no support to back up their claims.

Because they have no proof or specifics about anything other then Obama's words that he will bring "change" I honestly hope that Obama gets elected and brings the worst changes ever. I almost wish he would get elected and messes up this country so badly that we all lose every thing we all worked for for so long ... then i want to hear them ask about the changes and hear Obama say ...well we did bring changes ... they didn't work ... but i never told you guys what change i would bring. You know my dad used to tell me when i was young that sometimes you need a slap in the face to realize how sensitive your skin is or lose someone to realize how important they were. well this nation is slacking and letting go of the most valuable parts of its name ... its identity. Maybe we need to loose it all for these morons to feel the pain.

A few days ago a question at Y/A asked : " What would Obama do for our Country ? " --- An Obamabot replied : " Obama would take everything bad & turn it good " ---I did not know whether to laugh or cry.

Obama has voted straight Democratic in the US Senate and will continue to do so during the next four years.
- Robert FLv 71 decade ago
Because he speaks that way and only the fools can understand the foolishness . Have you ever tried to listen to one of his speeches (I tried for about 10 minutes). He talks and talks , sounds pretty and says nothing of substance
- MeganLv 51 decade ago
Asking someone to speak on a subject they are not objective on is asking to ave a biased discussion. Way to go.
Here. This is a discussion of all the senate bills both Obama and Clinton have passed. Add 'em up. He simply has a greater number of ones co-sponsered or co-written with a Republican.
His ability and willingness to call shenanigans on the gas tax holiday is a pretty good indicator that he's stronger in the economy than either of his opponents, who were either truely fooled by it, or willing to ignore the reality of it in the face of the potential gain for them.
The fact that he hasn't started fraying at the seams as Clinton has is an indication of his strong leadership abilities.

The image of a president commands respect and this is possibly what his footage will be based upon.
- GreatBuddhaLv 51 decade ago
If you don't think he can succeed, than you haven't been paying attention to his campaign.
He has been hit by many controversies and prevailed through them all.
He has one in states like Iowa, and other Red states.
He knows a lot about economies, he opposed the gas tax holiday, where several economist agreed with his stands on the issue.
He shows everyday that he is a tough leader and that he can weather the storm.Source(s): Buddha Bless You
