Conservatives don’t oppose President Barack Obama because they dislike his policies. They oppose the president because they “hate” him, or so say a lot of people on MSNBC.

“Right-wingers,” MSNBC hosts and guests argue, don’t really oppose NSA spying, the IRS’ admitted practice of targeting conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status or the millions and millions of dollars that have been wasted on taxpayer-funded green energy boondoggles.

No, according to MSNBC speakers, conservatives oppose Obama because they just hate him.

In fact, according to host Chris Matthews, it sometimes seems like they hate Obama more than they hate Al Qaeda. And for host Al Sharpton, who has a penchant for repeating back the president’s exact words, conservatives “hate” for Obama is a fact of life.

If this all sounds familiar, it should. The network has been running with this argument for quite some time, as you can see in the following video from the Washington Free Beacon:
