For those of you who "hate" Obama...

Many women here seem to have real animosity towards Obama, who is just a person, like any other person. I am wondering, do those of you who seem to hate Obama feel compassion for him, upon the loss of his grandmother? Or have you so dehumanized him that you are incapable of feeling compassion for his loss?

  • I def. feel compassion for him but I am wondering if he feels compassion for all the babies he votes to have aborted but cause it will PUNISH the mother as he says babies are a punishment if you are not ready..... also for the babies he votes to leave in trash cans to die that survived the abortion.........

  • Anon- You are right. It happens on both sides. I don't hate McCain. I try not to hate anyone. Maybe this is were we can all find common ground- If we ban together and vow to eliminate "hate".

    You are probably right that my question sounds very one sided, but I really didn't mean it to be anti-McCain in the least. I am just terribly distressed by the lack of compassion I have seen in so many mothers during this election cycle.

  • Wow anon that makes it sound SO simple. Us pro lifers are just simplistic idiots who are just stupid enough to be thinking about the BABY that's being killed.

  • PLEASE LADIES. Do not make this about abortion, or about any political issue. My question is intended to explore whether we can have compassion for ppl with disagree with and vilify.

    If McCain's grandmother had died today, I would be asking the same question to Obama supporters, so please understand, this ? is not intended to bash any side of this contest. It's about compassion.

  • THIS QUESTION IS NOT ABOUT ABORTION.

    Ladies, I am asking you to restore my faith in American mothers. By arguing about abortion, you are def not restoring my faith in anything.
