"journalism" so bad it's funny

I stumbled across this piece saying how unpopular health care is. The piece is so obvious in its bias, it's hard to believe it's not a troll:

http://news.investors.com/article/607337/201204110938/obama-signature-healthcare-legislation-widely-disliked-by-americans.htm

The comments aren't much better. To wit:

obama is a illegal muslim piece of trash and a waste of oxygen. how has he not gotten impeached because of his fraud birth certificate.if he gets 4 more years, this country is doomed.</blockqoute>

I find it really and truly sad that some people actually think that way, and a bit scared for democracy. With elections won by a few percentage points, we really need to respect the leader even if we don't agree with the approach; otherwise at least 45% of the country will be effectively disenfranchised in any given term.

But really, I can't get past boggling over these comments. I don't get hoe people could think this way, or think that saying these things was going to convince anyone their side was right.
