I-A-B Reader Letter of the Day #3: Obama? NObama?
I didn”t realize that I-A-B was so Anti-Obama/Pro-Republican! It looks to me like anything against Obama is at least worded in such a way that it seems less aggravating, and anything that is pro Obama is labeled as improper. This is quite distressing, since I had always turned to I-A-B as a source of random entertainment, but this site has become to politically polarized so fast! Please stop with the politics!

Full disclosure, this email was sent to me a while ago, but I liked it and kept it because I knew eventually I”d get to it somehow. So now that you know that, onward…
So, is I-A-B anti-Obama? I can”t speak for any of the other mods, but I personally am not anti-Obama. I”m neutral and side with the team that I think is best. In the last 4 or so years, I”ve voted Dem and Rep and even Indie twice. In short, I”m just all for whatever makes the world a better place. I think that”s what the rest of the I-A-B Mods are for too–I could be wrong, but they”ll probably explain themselves in this link”s forum.
Why does everything on the site related to Obama seem slanted against him? Probably because that”s what that particular situation calls for–example: the Debt Ceiling and his poor handling of it. But there are some Obama posts that champion him for the cool guy he is. Barry is just out of his depth this term. In 10 years, I bet he would have been the next Clinton (sans the cigar in the vagina thing), but in 2011 he”s struggling.
Ciao until tomorrow, Fancylad
Fancy answers the age-old I-A-B question: Why are you guys so Anti-Obama and Pro-Republican? The myth is shattered!
