Some of my readers seem to think it's OK for Barack Hussein Obama to waste their tax dollars on whatever he sees fit. They didn't extend that same tacit approval to George Bush when he was in office.

Apparently, Obama gets a pass because he's half black. But loyal reader Pat disagrees:

I am just biting my tongue and fingers trying not to drop a comment on that post. Sandra you have those folks penned in a corner. They jump up in the post and don't even want to answer a direct question. THIS is why our politicians go unchecked and unchallenged. They don't have to blindly steal from us. They boldly snatch what they want from us IN our FACE. And the best response the herd can give us is "other administration did it" or "other administration did worse." This mentality is why we can progress and pare down government. Right is right and wrong is wrong, and it is unsettling that they can't even acknowledge the wrongs that are taking place. People with this mindset must belong to that 52% voting block that the other 38% of us are taking care of. Weez in a world of trouble.

    i give up

  • carmelita79

    me too. sometimes its better to let people sit in their own hate.

  • anti-PC

    I agree with Pat.

    All I can do is shake my head at those who refuse to criticize Obama when it is warranted.

    I'm done!

    I'm convinced Pat and Anti had some Sandra Juice.

    Excuse me Sandra ... Can I have a post on The Dream?

  • SunnyPA

    Loyal reader Pat is not alnoe in her thinking. I go through the same thing when I read SOME of the comments.

    I want Obama to be successful because this country can't take much more. It's about COUNTRY not the person.

    But if you think being a 'hater' means taking a stand for not only what I believe but what is right regardless of the color of the prez's skin then I'm a proud member of the Haters' Club.

    It's truly a shame that more of you didn't do anything when Bush was in office. Still, not to do anything now because you didn't do anything then ... is insane.

  • iyonah

    I TOTALLY AGREE***

  • SunnyPA

    Oh ... ya learn something new everyday.

    Thanks.

  • atownquarter07

    Lol its not ignorance. ITA = i totally agree

  • Shauny

    It's hard to post when the 3 of the last 5 posts are Obama topics and like dhoward, it's not what I come here for.

    Sandra, I know you like to get a rise out of some with your Obama posts and there are some of us who don't even bother to comment on them. Can we please have a non Obama post to even the playing field? It's kind of slow here at work today.

  • Lala11_7

    I think that a "hater" is someone who ALL OF A SUDDEN has something to say about the CURRENT administration...

    But had NOTHING to say about the PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION!!!

    I miss the days when this blog was purely about entertainment...it was exciting...and wonderful...

    That's ALL I'm saying...

  • Shauny

    wait wait - o.k I'm embarrassed for being on SR for so long and not asking WTH does SDMH or SMH (I think) means. Please help a sista out. lol

  • toosexy

    I AGREE ALSO SOME PEOPLE REFUSE TO SEE WHAT IS GOING ON, JUST BECAUSE HE'S HALF BLACK. AND THAT THE MAIN REASON A LOT OF THESE SAME PEOPLE VOTED FOR HIM. I HOPE HE GETS THINGS DONE, BUT JUST LIKE SOMEONE ELSE SAID, JUST BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE REALLY THINK DEEPLY AND CRITICALLY ABOUT THINGS DOES NOT MEAN THEIR HATING OR EVEN DISLIKE A PERSON.

  • toosexy

    @SHAUNY

    SHAKING MY DAMN HEAD , AND SHAKING MY HEAD... I THINK.LOL

  • Daisy

    I love how people only read what they want to read/see. Several people including myself have said they DO NOT agree with everything the President has done thus far or will do in the future. Nobody will ever agree with anybody 100% that is not breakng news or a newsflash!

    I do not like the word hater never have never will but if supporters who do NOT want to sit around and B itch and moan just to be B itching and moaning doesn't make one a kool aid drinker, or that they trust the govt and the President blindly.

    When I disagree with the President I have and will say so. I just don't do it with hate and disdain like some choose to do.

    Thank u. Thanks why i seldom even look at these Obama Posts. All i see is criticism, complaints, and no ideas of solutions.

  • http://myspace.com/latituded400 Shannon

    Now you all now that George W. Bush was the greatest President we ever had. The 8 years he was in office our country was in the best shape morally, financially and then some. If anything were different then this site would have been full of negative posts about Dubya. I can always tell when there is a slow/no news day in the entertainment world. Can we please return to our regularly scheduled programming. Thank you.

  • teecee

    poor thing pattie needs to take a civics class or at least an American government class and see how the government works. then she will understand that it is congress that runs America not the president. then she can put the blame on her congress person. it seems to me that haters always want to complain, but never have the intelligence to properly address the problem and suggest improvements to her congress person, not a blogger.

  • Shauny

    Thanks toosexy! Makes total sense now...lol

  • sexyma078

    Ok I am so glad I can comment from the blackberry....anyhoo I am not supporting Obama because he is black...from the jump I did pray that he WAS qualified to be our first black president but he had to prove it to me...since I know it will be asked he proved it by having the best ideas and plans for the future such as education energy and growth...was his platform different when he was running yes because this time last year none of us nor the candidates knew what was going on... The initial TARP was created in September you know the one that gave the crooks that got us into this millions in bonuses its just funny how because I won't jump on the hate on Obama bandwagon I'm accused of not thinking or being a welfare recipient (yeah Pat I caught that)
