Reason, Not Insults
We conservatives are often said by the MSM and liberal to be racist. I often read conservatives making fun of President Obama's name. I am sure in the vast majority of cases it is meant as a personal insult based on the name of the president, and not as a racist term.
We conservatives, like the true liberals only number about 40% of the population. We need to focus our efforts on the 20% in the middle. If we write and speak respectfully about the President and rather than make fun of his name, explain to people why his policies are wrong for the nation we are more likely to make progress in convincing that 20% to join us as conservatives.
When we make fun of his name or otherwise write disrespectfully about the President we turn people off, or we cause them to think we are not serious about our opinions. President Obama is a terrible president, has done a very bad job leading our nation. I hope that we can make our case with logic, reason and rationality, not by name calling; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
