Hmmm...what could it possibly be about Barack Obama to "hate his guts" so much? I can't quite put my finger on it. coffee

Somehow, I don't think that's the reason. After all, wasn't George Washington 6' 2" ? Let's think about this, what else could it possibly be...what is so different about Barack Obama from all of the other prior presidents to "hate his guts" so much?

It is glaringly obvious. He is everything Real Americans loath with a Biblical intensity. He's a Kenyan Progressive-Liberal, Socialist-Fascist bent on instituting his Radical Post-Colonial, Statist agenda and destroying America as we know it. His endgame is to turn every man, woman and child into abject slaves; a population devoid of Individuality, Happiness and Liberty, an indistinguishable mass of gray humanity enthralled by entitlements to a godless, faceless State.

That is why he is hated.

You forgot to mention he plays a hell of a one on one game on the basketball court, especially against those who can't jump.

Militia Uses Jesus and The 2nd Amendment to Justify Threatening President Obama’s Life

Reading comprehension is defined as the level of understanding of a text that comes from the interaction between the words that are written and how they trigger knowledge outside the text. There are two specific groups in America that are woefully deficient at reading comprehension, and it does not relate to academia or the nation’s education system. It is likely that the two groups, entirely made up of adults, are literate enough to read and understand simple text, but their dysfunctional ideology, inherent ignorance of American history, and twisted interpretation of their religion puts them in a class of human beings suffering “pathologic psychopathy.”

Extremists Launch Treasonous Plot to Overthrow President Obama A Week Before Thanksgiving

...on November 19th [Larry Klayman] and fellow Islamophobes, extremist Christian leaders, and right-wing gun fanatics will converge on the White House and depose the Obama Administration, members of Congress, and the Supreme Court. According to Klayman, President Obama is a “despot, socialist, ultra-leftist “Muslim” who, with his Democratic minions, passed a destructive piece of legislation” (Affordable Care Act) that Klayman claims is unconstitutional. Within the new declaration of independence is a laundry list of imagined slights that claims after “warning him and his administration of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us, we must acquiesce in the necessity, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.” Klayman’s group clearly holds the United States government and Barack Obama as “Enemies in War.”

The November 19th rally calling for the overthrow of President Obama and the government is being co-sponsored by groups such as Accuracy In Media, GrassTopsUSA, Gun Owners of America, Pacific Justice Institute, and several teabagger groups. Klayman claims Representative Trent Franks (R-Ariz) will speak at the coup d’état rally, but a spokesperson from Franks’ office says the congressman will not attend. Franks is likely wise enough to avoid being seen with the other speakers slated to join Klayman who say they are “disgusted by Obama’s criminality, his Muslim, socialist, anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, anti-white, pro-illegal immigrant, pro-radical gay and lesbian agenda to demand the President leave town and resign from office if he does not want to face prison time.” Klayman said if the seditionists’ “list of grievances is not considered by the ruling establishment it will result in their demise” and strongly suggested there may be a violent revolution if the November 19 rally fails to reach its stated goal; overthrow of the United States government.

I wonder how many people in these organizations are FBI or Secret Service provocateurs, waiting for somebody to actually hatch a real plot. Then they would have some solid evidence of more than just inciteful speech, which could put some of these boneheads away for decades.

But I also have to wonder if Klayman was committed for a 72 hour psych hold, and pumped full of antipsychotics, would he come out of that saying: "What the Hell was I thinking?"
