Very good question, very good observations

As an outside observer from Australia, I've always been bemused by the polarization in the USA regarding their President - particularly in purely political terms. Attitudes to President Obama are a good example of resentment rather than substance.

I agree it's resentment more than anything else. The fact that Obama is different from any previous president in so many ways adds to the resentment. AFAIK, he's the first to be attacked questioning even his legitimacy to be president. That speaks volumes.
