Conservatives are the most vocal. Obama is centerist if not liberal. That just gets conservatives goat. There is a strong feeling among conservatives that the real America is also conservative. They OWN America. They have been told by their leaders that G-d is on their side and they will always be on top. That is not true. And it stings.
I think it has a lot to do with race. I heard it from many people who I never considered to be racist that: "Obama won't survive his term." They felt sure he would be assassinated. Because he was black. If those words came out of the mouths of people I never considered racist, I am sure the many I know who are clearly racist (hey, this is the South) are waiting with baited breath for the end of this Presidency.
It's unfortunate. Obama has accomplished an overhaul of healthcare that many powerful people have tried to do for decades. It should be something to be incredibly proud of. I don't think he'd get credit in many circles even if unemployment was 4% and home values were all back to normal.
It's just how people were raised.
