Obamaphobia made you ask the stupid question in the OP.
The answer is Democrats aren't, but in teapartybizarroworld, normal behavior toward a successful president is sycophancy (though I bet most tea partiers had to look the word up)
Are You a Partyer or a Partier?
>"No matter what you think of the tea party movement, you have to credit this group with raising one of the most profound questions of our time — whether to describe one who parties as a "partyer" or a "partier."
Before we answer this question, it's worth noting that the tea party itself is a political party named for a social party. That is, it's named for a mass demonstration (the dumping of tea into Boston Harbor), an event that decades later was dubbed, with jovial understatement, "a tea party."
Now back to "partyer" and "partier." The standard rule when creating a noun to indicate the person or thing performing an action is simply to add "-er" to the verb, as in "do — doer," "run — runner" and "teach — teacher." When the verb ends in "y," the "y" is usually changed to "i" before adding the "-er"; hence, "cry — crier," "worry — worrier," "copy — copier."
But in rare cases, we do form the noun by adding "-er" alone to the verb ending in "y." Sometimes it's because the resulting "-ier" word might be mistaken for an adjective. Using "dryer" for the household appliance, for instance, avoids confusion with the adjective "drier."
In other cases, we add "-er" alone because the resulting "-ier" word might be perceived as a one-syllable word.
"Flier," for instance, might be seen as a word pronounced "fleer," so we sometimes use the variant spelling "flyer." The Wright Brothers, for instance, called their first airplane "The Flyer," not "The Flier."..."<
