Lots of opinions being put forth this week regarding the angry demonstrative people attending the August townhalls and September 12th rallies. Why are they so angry with Obama?

Some, including Jimmy Carter and Em think it's about race.

“Barack Obama stripped millions of Americans of their right to not have a black President.” Balloon Juice

"I remember when they were hooded." Margaret and Helen

"
"The president does not think (the birther handjob movement) is based on the color of his skin", White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters.
Well sure, that explains why they hated Clinton, too, but did the anti-Clinton handjobs take to the streets? No, this is a special kind of hate: "Them niggers just stole America and we decent white folk gotta steal it back ...and if a price has to be paid, I know God is on the I-hate-them-niggers side."
This has civil war written all over it.
Who thinks I'm kidding?"

Bartcop

I'm more inclined to think that, while ALL of the groups represented have SOME racists, "it’s hard to measure racial motivation. And it’s hard to measure levels of vitriol, whatever motivations may drive them." .

Some see The Revenge of Ron Paul's Army.

Others see the influence of Fox News and talk radio with their lies and fantasies about health-care reform swirled together with lies and fantasies about the chief executive himself. If you didn't click on the link to Rachel's interview with Frank Schaeffer, go back to the dailyhowler article and check it out. He talks about subcultures of our society.

Old Novice,

I see that you are a old liberal hippy type. Liberals are taking over this country and ruining it. Barack Obama is not a viable president because he is not a american citizen, he has managed to ruin this country in just 9 months. Please understand that all you believe in now, and all that looks wonderful in this country to you now is soon to come back and bite you in the butt. You are going to be shocked on morning, SOON, and find that all your freedoms are gone forever and there is not a darn thing that you can do about it. Your precious "president/usurper, is going to become your worst night mare.
I hope you are ready to cope with this as it is going to happen soon. Get ready for tears and confusion Old Novice, it isn't going to be pretty in this country. Tell me, who will you support then, because Obama is selling you and me down the river in the name of New World Order.

Good Luck!

You've got my number, Ann. Thanks for stopping by.

Sounds like you might be interested in this article by Alex Jones, Ann. Good luck on that revolution.

Wow, reading Ann's comments on the last few posts makes me wonder why she's here reading at all.

As someone who grew up without insurance, I think it's really important to have an affordable option for families who need it. My family was mostly lucky that we stayed healthy and didn't have any accidents. (Ex: none of us ever broke a bone worse than a toe or finger.)
