People need three things in order to live or perhaps four, these are the basic survival level needs you have heard them stated various ways but they boil down to food, water, shelter and security. It is the final need for security that all tyrants prey upon. Because people will accept almost any condition to avoid chaos which is the opposite of security. This is the reason that some people (including myself) suspect that at heart P. Obama is a tyrant. It seems that every time things start to settle down he stirs up a new sort of chaos. And it can be seen from history that other tyrants used the stirring of chaos to distract the populace from the creeping strangulation of tyranny.

Plato and Aristotle define a tyrant as, "one who rules without law, looks to his own advantage rather than that of his subjects, and uses extreme and cruel tactics -- against his own people as well as others". (Wikipedia).

While I understand what you're saying, and I am not saying I'm an Obama fan (I generally avoid politics all together), I wouldn't exactly call him a tyrant. He just doesn't fit the definition (well, my definition) of a tyrant.

I think it boils down to one of two things for why people don't like him. Either a) it's because of his race, or b) because he's actually doing something.
