Re: “The real hatred and vitriol is coming from the Left, not Sarah Palin

I admire Obama for his ability to accomplish and address things that are important to me, and personality has a tremendous amount to do with that. He has a natural charisma, and we can debate the pros and cons of that all day long. I appreciate that he has broached the topic of healthcare reform; you may not like the current bill, but I don’t see anyone suggesting anything markedly better. I appreciate the eventual end of DADT. I appreciate that, even as a Democrat, he cut taxes to small businesses. I could go on, but in short, I appreciate that he champions causes I support, and I recognize that his personality has something to with their success. Perhaps you don’t consider more support for the military and their families successful (more money for the VA, travel benefits to families). C’est la vie. I don’t have a problem with him having ideologies in common with the Democrats—he’s a Democrat.

Saying Sarah Palin is the Republican version of Obama is insulting to both Republicans and Obama. She is not the President, and I think the majority of Americans suspect she never will be. I have yet to hear one cogent argument or suggestion come out of her mouth and find her woefully unprepared for public office. She’s very entertaining for the purposes of reality television; I hope they keep her.

The emotion Sarah Palin engenders in me is not hate---it’s frustration. I do agree that there is hatred spewing from both sides, and I don’t think yours is a “who started it,” finger-pointing argument. Hate breeds hate. I think the world has proven that many times over.
