I have removed many from my FB "friends" list over the past year. Just this week I removed someone because they spoke of their love of being a Redneck complete with a Confederate battle flag! And that's the way it's been for all "unfriended". Anti-Obama comments relating him/his wife/kids to apes, references to "sand ni99ers", and comments against the President that are based on racial hatred.
Let's face it: He inherited a mess, he has not tried to take away everyone's guns, he has not tried to turn America into a Socialist state, and he has not used presidential authority more than any other president. But the question has to be asked of those people with a supreme hatred of Obama: Why do you hate him more than any prior POTUS if he has not done the things he is accused of? Oh... Benghazi, right? It's not like American embassies were ever overrun before, right? Saigon never happened. Tehran never happened. Tripoli never happened. Just Benghazi. Just under Obama, right?
Obama was hated when he was running and he became absolutely vilified once he won the general election. And once he did that, he broke the unwritten rule, he shattered the most formidable glass ceiling of them all: He became President when it was generally assumed that no minority could ever ascend to such heights. Then came the cries of him being a foreigner (because no American black was ever seen as having a chance, not even Jesse Jackson). That his election was part of a plot to topple America (because we blacks aren't "true" Americans according to many, so having one in charge must mean that the America of today is a lesser America than it was just seconds before he was elected).
Yet people believe such tripe. They swallow such beliefs greedily, like a man pulled from the desert would drink a pitcher of ice cold water. The man from the desert has no choice but to drink if he wants to live. However, there is no such concern about imminent death when it comes to Obama. So, I ask those who believe the worst and who spread the worst that could ever possibly be said about a sitting President just one thing: Why did YOU swallow?
