  • I live in a conservative area, Obama "lovers" are rare. Thank Goodness! Hopefully, Chet Edwards will be gone this election!!

  • Why did some people "Key" cars in my small town if they had an "Obama for President" bumper sticker in 2008?
    I was one of a very few Democrats in my town and I didn't dare put a bumper sticker for any Democrats on my car. And I kept my mouth shut at neighborhood gatherings,etc.
    At a Bunco night last fall with 'the girls' they spent the evening discussing why gays should not be married and how they are sinners. I also kept my mouth shut that night too. And I dropped out of the group.
    It is too bad people can't be nice.

  • I would assume it is because Obama detractors are just as nuts. I prefer the moderates, those are the sane people.

  • There are crazies everywhere... But should we lump all Obama lovers together with these 'few' extremists? Just because some libs (not all) like to group all party supporters together with a small extremist fringe, do we want to be that naive and ignorant? I think not.  I am sorry about your experience in your town.  They feel threatened right now.   His policies and popularity in many ways are on a growing trend of decline...
