The only reason why some call it a bad starting hand is because they don't know how to play the hand. If you go all-in pre-flop than you statistically have the best hand. Although it can be a bad hand because people tend to overplay it after the flop and sometimes they will end up getting beat after the flop and than they make the all-in move and regret and then come on this forum and tell us why AA is not always a good stating hand.
If you don't want to get beat, than go all-in pre-flop, generally you don't get many callers, so your odds are increased to win the hand. Remember when you have aces you probably don't want more than 3 people in on the hand (including yourself). So if your playing at a loose table the proper move is to go all-in, force a few people to make a bad play and if you get beat from there than your luck is just rotten and there's nothing you can do about it.
