I've never liked the idea of saying things like "Barak Obama hates America" How do you know what he hates or doesn't hate? It's my experience that no one, not even the most evil people, believe they're being evil. They believe they're 'doing what they must' or 'just protecting themselves' or even worse, doing something for someone else's own good. Hitler may be reviled by history, and if there's one guy who pretty much everyone agrees was evil, it's him. But at the time I'm quite sure he thought he was on the right track.
For the record, I'm not comparing Obama with Hitler. I'm just saying that to convince yourself that you know what he (or any other politician) does and doesn't "really care" about is nonsense. To be fair, it's a nonsense that liberals are far more guilty of than conservatives. But both sides are at least minimally guilty of it. To say something like that you have to know someone really intimately, and even then it's still just an educated guess. No one ever really knows what's in the heart of someone else.
But there are things you can say are true about all people - even politicians. For instance, while a politician may or may not actually care about solving other people's problems, they certainly care about solving their own. They may not be capable of it, but the desire will certainly be there. I don't think anyone on either side of the aisle would dispute that.
Right now, it is safe to assume, that what Barak Obama "really wants" is to get re-elected. (A conjecture true... but a nearly universally held one - one which he might even admit in public.) And right now, the principle obstacle to that re-election is not Mitt Romney but the high unemployment rate. In that regard it's his problem now, whether he wants to blame someone else for creating it or not. No amount of verbal wrangling or obfuscation will change that. And yet, month, after month, after painful month, the unemployment rate continues to be uncomfortably high.
Since that problem is not getting solved, and it is reasonable to assume that Obama would solve it if he could, it also is reasonable to assume that this is a problem that the Obama administration does not know how to solve. That's strict empiricism... no conjecture there. If he could he would, but since he hasn't, it probably means he can't. This says nothing about what he cares about, or what he thinks is important. It relies exclusively on the universal desire of all humans to solve their own problems and achieve their own goals.
So if he has already demonstrated that he can't solve this problem, a problem by the way which has dire consequences for a great many more Americans than just the President, then why in the world would anyone let him keep trying?
Maybe you are one of those people who doesn't like Mitt Romney. You think he's boring and stiff, or you don't like his wife's horses, or the fact that he's a Mormon. Maybe you think any profitable business is evil and think the world would be "better" if it were organized differently. But even if all that is true, you still have to admit that a high unemployment rate is real a problem for real people. So why would you go out and vote for Obama, when he has proven that this is a problem that's totally beyond the ability of his team to solve?
This seems genuinely rudimentary to me. I'm not saying you shouldn't vote for Obama because he doesn't care, or that he hates something. I'm not calling him a bad person or criticizing his vision for America. All I'm saying is that if he can't solve his own obvious problems, then how can you expect him to solve anyone else's?
