There is nothing wrong for disliking people for their political views. I am not talking about the Republican party in the US who likes to feed their base bunch of nonsense, but in reality is no difference from the Democrats. But there are some things a person can feel very strong about in politics and you can dislike a person for their political views. I could never like someone who was a neocon for example

Is Bouchard an admirer of Reagan. ...

I'm willing to venture that she knows nothing truly substantive about him other than the jingoistic bullshit that gets trotted out.

Anyway, that's truly a mark against her in my book, if she TRULY understands his bullshit and loves him anyway.

Chris Evert said in a Canadian interview when talking about Ajla and Madison that they lacked 'the casual arrogance of a champion' and that they would improve once they got some of that.

Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

I'm not a fan of conservative politicians but as long as she's not like Pro Sarah Palin or something like that. It's narrow minded to dislike someone outright for holding views you deem ignorant or you disagree with. I'd dislike alot more people if I took that view.

She's a really good tennis player that's all I really know.

Exactly.

And generally, I didn't find anything likable about her. OK, her composure and mental toughness is something I admire, but that's it.

Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

I actually like the whole ice queen thing, I think it's cool, and I always like a slight bit of arrogance. But I think her game is fucking hideous, the "lame shakey thing" comment was just pathetic, I don't like blonde right-wingers, I just think they're pathetic and an insult to fellow women, and I dislike players with inferior games who win because they are mentally tougher.

"Sometimes we've wondered if Martina actually knew what she was saying. Maybe it was her age or inexperience or something got lost in the translation. But I don't know. She comes out with something astounding and then just stares at you like, 'What did I say?' But then she'll have that glint in her eye."

Not always true.
One of Dick Cheney's daughter is a lesbian in a committed relationship.
Her other daughter, who has political ambitions, is staunchly socially conservative.
When she decided to run for office, she threw a sister under the bus by publicly declaring her opposition to gay marriage after she seemed to have been OK with it (or neither object nor support it)

Just saying, not accusing Genie of homophobia.

...I don't think so. There are plenty of people - including politicians - whose reprehensible views and philosophies have led to the suffering, abuse and even slaughter of others. Anyone who admires those points of view tacitly - if not outright - SUBSCRIBE to those points of view and therefor are worthy of equal disdain.

Now, is that EB? I don't know, but..., I'm just saying.

I don't believe she's socially conservative.

She's probably fiscally conservative/socially liberal. Like alot of the conservatives in Canada.

Canada is socially progressive, which means there's no debate over gay marriage. I would be VERY shocked to hear that Genie is against gay marriage.

Victoria Azarenka.
Serena Williams. Maria Sharapova.

Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

Seeing as I am a Sharapova fan I really really really want to like Genie.. I even stayed through that horrible semi-final today just to see her reaction at the end and the interview. How disappointing! I think I give up on her (or maybe after the final) now and I agree with you guys that she is waay too robotic and cocky. When watching her interviews there is just something really off about her and absolutely no endearing qualities. Such a shame.

Poverty is a social issue as well, and conservative policies don't tend to be too concerned with solving it .
