Why will this post get turned into a bash Dem/Obama post?

Okay, I'm so past who wants or doesnt want Obama in presidency. It's done so I'm over it. But why does any political post have to turn into that? Its so annoying I dont even want to post political questions anymore?!

But, it'll happen to this one too!

  • I'll chalk it up to people who have no idea what's actually going on in the world, so they read any question that suggest there is anything wrong as sour grapes over Obama winning. Even the posts about the stimulus package and congress, which have absolutely nothing to do with Obama. Perhaps if people could accept that some people actually follow politics all the time instead of just the month before an election, they would understand there is more to discuss than who won.

  • You know sometimes the questions get many answers and I don't even mind if it progresses into something different. Its just too much of the same old stuff with the current political bashing.

  • If you're sick of it, why do you keep bringing the subject up? You must not be sick enough. Here's your sign.

    BRAVO! And, of course, don't forget those that tell us "if we didn't for Obama it's because we're racist!"

  • What happens is that we post Current Event Questions and Answers. People reply with comments like, "It's over he won, deal with it" or "He has on;y been in office for ___ days"...

    Look at all he has done in 9 days. It's scary. If people like us DIDN'T post about the issues and talk about it, then Nancy Pelosi very well may have gotten her way and Population Control would have been the New Stimulus Program for America.

    But as we disucss, people who voted for Obama, go off on us and call us soar losers. Ummm, NO! We are concerned American's not wanting to see our country head down a path of liberal marxist ways.

  • ...Then before you know it, we are off on a tanget.. Anons come in and make extreme outlandish comments (on both sides I might add). And then it turns ugly.

  • But there is the occasional Political Humor (both sides). People are still on course, but have injected commentary. Which is perfectly HUMAN.

  • It's not about whether we wanted BO for president or not. Now, it's about the direction he's taking this country. There are lots of people who are all for Obama and his views. However, there are a lot of people who are AGAINST his views and everything he stands for. We use this forum to make our views known.
