A notable difference...

I just wondered if anyone might identify with this. I am about as moderate as a person can be. I was definitely against most of the things that Bush stood for, and I noticed that when people complained about Bush they were viewed as intelligent. However, I've noticed that when people have complaints about Obama, even intelligent, thought-about grievances, they are considered either ignorant or racist. I've noticed this even in the media! I just wonder if anyone else notices this trend. Are people just not allowed to criticize him?

  • That's a load of BS. People criticize Obama all the time, including his supporters. I for one criticized his continuing the so-called "Patriot Act," and I am a supporter. I was then called stupid and ignorant for voting for him. As a matter of fact, ever since Obama started to run I have been a supporter, and people immediately accused me of "drinking the kool-aid", wanting a hand out, all sorts of other stupid crap that has never come up before when I supported a candidate. In other words, it is not the average Obama supporter that is so extreme, it is the reactionary right wingers. They are throwing off the curve.

    It's not that I refuse to see it. I live in liberal Minnesota, home of millions of Obama supporters, and I am your typical MN DFL-er and it's just not true that they use race as a tactic. I'm not even sure what that means.

  • Yeah, academia (and the news media that likes to think it's academia) is disproportionately left wing - so there's this air of intelligence and education must go hand in hand with those views.

    It's odd for me, a straight A University grad, who's also a Conservative, when people throw around "ignorant," or "redneck" in regards to my views.

  • When people realize I'm well educated, they'll then move on to assuming I was a silver-spooner, born-into-money type that's just greedy and unfeeling.

    Again - untrue, I was raised in a low income family, and frankly, I'm still in a low income situation since I chose to be a SAHM.

  • It's common with many liberal leaners. They did it with Clinton, too. I have articles where Bush was criticized for Rendition, wiretapping, Bailouts, spending money on frivolous events, things..... But when Obama does it? Apparently it's all of a sudden acceptable. Interesting, isn't it.. ;o)
