I don’t pretend to know everything, but I have enough experience dealing with people to get a good sense of who they are by what they say. You don’t need to know all there is about an issue, but it’s how you demonstrate what you know about the issue that’s revealing.
When you are silent, observant and considerate enough to listen to the people who has nothing good to say about President Obama, you begin to discover their trends, tendencies, general ideology and demographics.
The mistake most people make is stooping down to their level of thinking. This is unnecessary when you know that they don’t know what they’re talking about. It’s even more unnecessary when you make it known to them that you know they don’t know what they’re talking about because they get more agitated and defensive.
Speak calmly and be friendly as much as possible. There’s no need to be defensive.
The point to keep in mind is one that takes many of them too long to understand if ever. That is to recognize that when you have been taught, lead to believe or unsocialized to such a level as many of them, change or any challenge to what they know will be met with extreme opposition, fear and hatred. When you make them aware of it they become defensive, question you and/or result to immature or immoral behavior.
You must have a strong and realistic understanding of their history and yours. Let them demonstrate their level of under education and prove their inadequacy to themselves and others by their actions.
Idiots don’t realize what they don’t know. That’s what makes them who they are.
