It's sickening. People constantly say bad things about every single one of them, I hear people bash Michele Bachmann like crazy, why is this?? It's like if your not a liberal and you don't like Obama, everyone views you as the enemy.

It's like system wars, only with politics. People like to be on teams.

I don't say bad things about Huntsman. :cry:

Because we are all actually bleeding heart liberal commie marxist terrorist clown managers. Also Michele Bachmann is crazy.

I'm from Sweden and I am part republican! I don't hate on either! I like republican foreign policy but democrat domestic policy!

Maybe it's because Republicans want to force their values onto everyone else like the Democrats do, even though the Democrats won't admit it. By the way, there are a lot of leftists that are critical of President Obama, especially of his foreign policy and extension of the Bush tax cuts.

I do watch Fox news but when I'm on the internet it's like it's the cool thing to do to hate on republicans.

#11 Posted by Ace6301 (21389 posts) -
Because right now the Republican party leaders are completely backwards and several have some pretty impressive scandals going on right now. Not to say the democrats aren't bad too but they're easily the lesser of two evils.

The Reps on here don't bash on the Dems either. It's just the political activist teens that have to be overly aggressive with their opinions.

Yeah I do. It's ridiculous the hate she gets. She doesn't deserve any of it.

Her laughable stance that she will repeal Obamacare as soon as she gets into office already warrants it. I guess she forgot the legislative branch of the Federal Government. She kind of needs the GOP to win both houses of congress.

It's actually funny how people hate on Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck so much because I watch them everyday and they don't seem to be the Obama hating, crazy nutjobs that they are portrayed to be on shows like the daily show or the colbert report. Once in a while Bill might say something that some people may disagree with, then that gets posted on youtube and everyone just hates on him and thinks hes the worst person in the world even though hes only said like 1 thing people disagree with.

Glenn Beck is god awful. I can see why some people watch O'reilly, but on occasion he says things so ridiculous that I'm left speechless.

Also, O'reillys interview with Obama was one of the most disrespectful things I've ever seen. I dont care if you don't like the him, but you don't repeatedly cut off and interrupt THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. It was disgusting.

I don't think people really hate on republicans, they generally just hate on ultra-conservatives, which unfortunately claim to be republican (just like ultra-liberals claim to be democrats). Both fringe areas of both parties definitately deserve some hate :P

Republicans are generally moderate and undeserving of any hate.

Thats just his opinion though and it's not really that bad what he says. Maybe he shouldn't have interrupted him a few times but a lot of people who interview always interrupt the person they are interviewing. Lots of people do it.

Bingo. People hate on Democrats too.

#33 Posted by Blue-Sky (10346 posts) -

It's because of Fox News.

It's one thing to preach your political views, it's another to lie and trick people into believing your views by spreading false information. The problem with Republicans is, they can't separate themselves from the false, lying machine that is Fox News, they feel that because they too are republican, they must come to their defense. It's a shame because they're many conservatives out there with legitimate reasonings for their beliefs, but ultimately shadowed by Fox News.

Theres a difference between interviewing people, and interviewing the president.

His constant contradictions, unreaserched stories, ridiclous statements, and overall fear mongering.

Yes but I don't think Obama was unfamiliar with his tactics. He agreed to go on the show. Though I'm not sure why the president should necessarily be treated differently. Note: I don't watch the show because I find O'Reilly an irritant.

Watch a comparison of O'Reillys Bush interviews, and his Obama interview. He was respectable and polite to Bush. Never cut him off.

That's pretty much the case. The problem as I see it is that the Republican party has been taken over by the extremists. Hopefully it's just for the relatively short term.

The difference is this. Turn on Fox News, and people are mad at Obama for being "socialist", too "far left", etc. Turn it on MSNBC and people are busy calling Republicans "tea baggers", calling Palin stupid and an idiot, etc. I find that the left often attacks Republicans personally... and it's not nice. Attacking policy and political stances is fair game.

And even Romney is being forced to the right. I don't have high hopes for Huntsman to be able to make it through the primary as a moderate.
