  • 1. I didn't like his policies - way too liberal for me
    2. Not enough experience
    3. He sealed all his records

  • 1) I feel his economic policies mirrored those which landed us in the depression.
    2) I disagreed with his health care reform. Although what we got really wasn't what he sold, either. If I remember correctly, his was more universal than Hillary's. I believe he, amusingly, did NOT want a mandate.
    3) I disagree with his environmental policies.

  • He had no experience at al, having no business experience or as far as I can see no real job at all.

    He is a far left liberal with big ideas that have no place in reality.

  • lack of experience, voting present, allegiance with key Dems, extravagant spending, lack of humility, campaigning overseas

  • Lack of experience in military and politics.

    I also noticed that he didn't really answer questions, he just gave really good speeches. I'm very wary of people who paint beautiful pictures but can't answer a yes or no question.

  • I was aware of his George Soros, Progressive, Democratic Socialist, connections, that was alarming to me...

    I did not like his verbiage, "fundamentally transform" America and Collective are simply not patriotic...

    And the fact that some people actually thought that Obama was going to pay their bills, buy them houses and cars, was really nuts...

  • He has no military experience like most Presidents do. I think he needs to understand military before he goes and changes some law or budget for them.

  • It was obvious what he was by the company he kept for twenty years or so.
    He telegraphed his intent by his "redistribution of income" comment.
    He voted for partial birth abortion.
    He was a contemporary democrat.
    He was from Chicago.

  • No experience.
    No voting record (voting 'present' isn't voting IMO).
    No real platform (hoping for change isn't a strategy).

    He is likable enough, but if you read what he says as opposed to listen to what he says, it sound much different.  I just didn't find myself impressed enough by his platform.

  • mostly the fact that he has no military experience and the fat that democrats tend to raise taxes.
