I knew what Obama was (and was likely going to be) in 2008. That was the ONLY reason I voted for McCain (whom I have loathed for years).
However, when he first got into office, while I "hoped he'd fail" because his policies were anathema to the Constitution and what the USA has been historically (a la Limbaugh), I thought he was a likeable guy. Even when I would complain about him and my kids would ask me if I hated him, I would say, I hate his policies, but I don't know enough about him personally to hate him and he's probably a nice person.
That said, over time, with his unfettered arrogance, his ceaseless and unabashed lying, his utter contempt for the Constitution (both his, and his entire Administration), and his glee in being able to get away with all of it because of the legions of his cockgobblers in the media, I can say without hesitation that I truly hate the man, and the sooner he, and his entire corrupt Administration, has been removed from power, the better.
