Republicans to President Obama: “We do not like you at all because ... ?” I'm not sure I want to know the answer, no matter what it is. “We will not govern with you, even if it means the American people will suffer because of our open disdain for you. We especially won't help you when it comes to ‘the 47 percent' that Mitt Romney said see themselves as ‘victims' and ‘dependent on government.' After all, we are Christians.” Uh-huh. Yeah.

“We were against you from day one and even before. If it wasn't for those Americans who voted you in, life would have been good.” I was one of those Americans and I am so proud to have voted for President Obama. That's why I cannot comprehend the hatred for him from these openly die-hard Christians. That baffles me. As if God is cheering them on and pouring hatred for this man into their hearts. It goes beyond anything I have ever seen, except for maybe teenage girls.

Oh, Republican Party — if you have time between the hatred and the hated, could you please do your job and help the American people? Even “the 47 percent”? You have become a sad, sad party.
