In an attempt to further the discussion point Ingrid attempted to start in Circuspeanut's "who really built it..." thread which can be found on this page ,I would like to propose a specific discussion point in this specific thread.
For those of us who are not conservatives, I sense we have always been dismayed at the almost immediate dislike and distrust of President Obama which has only grown since his win of the nomination for president from the Democrat party,certainly since his swearing in as the President of our country.
He has had three and a half years now to deal with the country and it's problems which were laid at his feet when he was sworn into office. He now has a track record which can be pointed to - with specifics - a record with both positive and negative points.
I think Ingrid did a fine job of pointing out, with specifics, his accomplishments during the last three and a half years.
I think it would make for a greater understanding if conservatives would, in kind, point out, with specifics, actions where the President and his administration have failed the country so severely to the point where it has been said here by most conservatives that they would vote for anyone BUT Obama.
That attitude would certainly indicate some severe failings, decisions which have greatly hindered or reversed any progress this country has made.
If conservatives here would please take a minute or two to compile a list of the specific (not general, please - specifics only) failings, it would finally provide a platform for the understanding of the deep distrust and outrage. If any of you have specifically addressed this issue in the past and don't want to repeat it again out of frustration, please at least refer us to the thread(s) where you made out his list.
Participating in this thread will finally allow all conservatives to simply refer back to this appropriately titled ""Obama's failings" thread when we ask why you hate him so. This is a real opportunity for all conservatives to finally offer their own personal, exacting list to be compiled within a single thread for reference later when liberals once again question the basis for their total disregard conserning President Obama's presidency.
I hope that the more liberal members here will allow the conservatives on this forum to do just that, offer their personal, specific list - without jumping in and condeming what it is they have to say, give them a chance to do what we keep asking them to do, please, without running them down.
As long as they are willing to be as precise in their list of his failings as was Ingrid in her list of President Obama's achievements, whatever they have in objections are valid and worthy of being acknowledged as such IMO.
Let's just try, all of us, just once?
