I'm having trouble understanding

Yay, the elections are over. No more ads bashing this one and bad mouthing that one. No more phone calls every 20 minutes telling us why we should vote for a certain candidate. So relieved.

Here's what I'm having trouble understanding. So many people are SO ANGRY over the outcome of the election. People are worried about the future for their children. I read a blog post by someone who is refusing to associate with Democrats or anyone that seems to lean liberal. Can someone please explain to me why so many people are upset? What is this culture of mean-ness that seems to permiate our culture now? I saw so many posts on FB about people unfriending people 'cos of their political leanings.

Yes, I voted. I'm a registered Independent. I pretty much split the ballot 50/50 between the Democrat and Republican candidates. Mitt Romney on his own was ok but did too much flip flopping on issues. Paul Ryan is way too conservative for my taste. While I wasn't thrilled with the Obama/Biden presidency, I don't think they're as bad as some have made them out to be.

My basic question is this: what makes Obama so "evil" or "horrible" or just all around a bad president? Can someone honestly answer that, please?
