I’m not understanding why so many people are mad at President Obama. 

-He ended the war in Iraq
-Began drawdown of the war in Afghanistan
-He saved the auto industry
-He was able to get (kill) Osama Bin Laden (remember, GWB promised he would get Bin Laden back in 2001 but failed)
-He has created over 5 million jobs
-He refuses to make the middle class pay more taxes while giving tax breaks to the wealthy
-Repealed 'Don't Ask Don't Tell"
-Toppled Mohammar Ghaddafi
-Passed Wall Street reform
-Passed health care reform
-Improved school nutrition
-Increased fuel efficiency standards
-Improved America's image abroad
-Kicked banks out of the student loan business
-Increased support for veterans
-Passed credit card reform
-Extended unemployment insurance
-Provided payment to wronged minority farmers
-He will not allow Medicare to be vouchered
-He will not allow Social Security to be privatized

SO, IS THIS WHY they’re SO TICKED OFF??? hmmmmm

"Actually, you are sitting on the losers bench...sadly, because so many people in this country are takers, willing to accept mediocrity and are so grossly uninformed, we're all on the losers bench. But if you enjoy high unemployment, high gas prices, a stagnant economy then...yay, Obama!" Sad isn't it.

  Abortion is the right of a human being to control their body.  The real objection is from the corporations who want customers who have no choice but to spend.  And force people into wage slavery.  GOP is Profits before people.  Keeping the obsolete economic system.

Not so.  There are many instances in which both society and government prohibit "control" over one's own body.  We also have many instances in which one forfeits certain "freedoms" because they may interfere or imperil the life of another...as is obviously the case with abortion.

You're also mistaken in your perception that the "GOP is profits before people."  The GOP is a politial party and doesn't produce profits, so it has no incentive to put them before either themselves or their constituents, both of whom are people.  What the GOP does recognize, which bizarrely eludes Democrats, is that for people and society to thrive, we need a healty economy...and a healthy economy requires healthy businesses creating commerce and jobs...and to be healthy, businesses require profits.  To ignore this very simple equation, as Obama and the Democrats have done, is to create an anti-business atmosphere that directly leads to the stagnant economy and high unemployment we're experiencing today.
