Re: "You Olympians, however, know you didnít get here solely on your own power"-Mitt Romne
Actually he does have a record to run on. And given the circumstances, he has done a good job. IN SPITE of the party of NO working overtime to throw every wrench in the gears as possible.

Obama has governed as a republican. That so many on the right still hate him, HAS to be about something other than his policies. What could it be? Well, I really don't know for sure, but it could have something to do with his race. Or it could be that repubs have become so crazy they have a deep hatred for anyone with a D in front of their name. It sure isn't about policy, as Obama has given the repubs most of the things they would have done themselves.
The performance of Obama, if he had been a republican, would have been lauded by the repubs. I think many on the right wanted OBL dead, they just didn't want Obama involved in it, since the repubs when they held the oval office couldn't find him and kill him. If you would have watched Fox and listened to talk radio after OBL was killed, it was obvious the right wingnuts were having a helluva time celebrating an Obama success. You got all of the "ifs" and "buts". It really was a horrible time for Fox news and their viewers. Still is.
Love one another as you love your self. The other is you, at the most fundamental level.
