22. 110% correct and an enthusiastic KNR! This is exactly how my evolution began back in 2004

and why I've turned my back on liberal blogs like Common Dreams, Truthout, the now defunct Firedoglake, Alternet, Buzzflash, and Counterpunch. I began to see that they went on full attack mode against President Obama without taking into account the unprecedented Republican and Teapublican obstructionism he had to face each and every time. When I saw their lack of mentioning this as the major reason he couldn't push through more liberal policies, it was time to leave those places.

I had wrongfully assumed that all Liberals would understand and see the same thing I did, but then I began seeing this almost visceral hatred toward President Obama on those blogs, criticizing him for what congressional Republicans were and were not doing. I also began to believe there was something more than "just" his center-left positions (which are still pretty darn liberal in a Teapublican Congress!) that had incited and fed that anger and hatefulness.
