I am not an Obama apologist. I voted for him, yes, but I have never said that I would defend everything he has done; you must have me confused with someone else. So what "past" am I ignoring?
McCain would not have been a horrible choice as, from my experience living in Arizona, he is actually quite the moderate, but his choice in VP was questionable to say the least. Romney also had a questionable choice if VP when he chose Santorum-lite (aka Paul Ryan). So other than just not agreeing with them politically as much as I did with Obama, I couldn't stomach the possibility of Ryan or Palin potentially becoming president.

I believe you are mistaken.
Also, you don't have to have any respect for Obama, but you shouldn't insult the people who vote for him just because you disagree with them. It's childish.
