Skip to comments.Where’s the guy who says,“I voted for McCain last time but I was wrong. I wish I’d voted Obama”?

A google search using the term, McCain voters say they wished theyd voted Obama shows about 7,450,000 items, but searching through them yields not a single article about voters feeling this way.
When most people are asked, We all know people who voted for Obama and say they wished they had voted for McCain, but where are the people who say they voted for McCain but wish they had voted for Obama? they start laughing.
By now we have all heard the public secular confessions of the Barack Obama supporters who wish they hadnt done what they did. These people feel a need to confess their sin so some intelligent voter can pat them on the head and say, Its alright, you meant well. Of course its not alright, so the legions of Obama Vote Regreters (OVRs) seems to be growing.
Stories about OVRs like the one recently posted by The Des Moines Register are rare. How stark does the picture have to be to force the media to talk about cracks in their kings armor? Pretty bad is the answer, and thats what the situation is in Iowa where just four years ago Barack Obama cruised to a land slide victory.
The Registers small but telling surveyed talked to 23 self- identified 2008 Obama voters including Republicans, Democrats Independents and found an astounding 18 said they would definitely not vote for Obama in November.
Whats worse for Obama is that each of these OVRs had a different reason for turning away from him.
One a longtime Democrat who has come to understand what a serious mistake she has made felt it necessary to confess her sin.
A small business owner she said, I wish to have my vote back. I feel completely responsible,

Either they don’t exist,or they belong in a lunatic asylum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The only voting base Obama has left are guilty white liberals and black women- and the only reason black women like Obama is because he's married to Michelle.
How about “Where’s the guy who annointed that baffoon McCain so as to guarantee a loss to obama?”
Hell, in 1984 even the student newspapers at UNC and Duke were endorsing Reagan.
Obama still has the media, the power of incumbency, the massive numbers of gubmint dependents, and fraud. Plus his opponent is weak.
I wish folks would stop using the “Google search results in”.
It is a ridiculous and baseless argument with no actual meaning.
Pick any famous person and attach two or more unrelated terms.
You’ll get plenty of “Google hits”.
“Obama is an Alien from Mars Eats Spam”
About 15,500,000 results (0.23 seconds)
I wish I voted for 0bama so I could now say “I’ll never vote for that SOB again!”
In before the how do I know Obama isn’t an Alien from Mars That Eats Spam? LOL
Do your search again. Look at the very top of the Google search. I predict you will get ZERO hits. What you are looking at is the same search without the quotes. Not very meaningful.
the power of incumbency, the more he uses it via Executive Orders the angrier we get - see Rasmussen saying conservatives NEVER so angry
the massive numbers of gubmint dependents, which always includes Social Security recipients I'm one I aint voting for Obama and neither are any others I know.
and fraud. See the Pennsylvania Photo ID law that has Democrats puking on their shoes - it will END voter fraud in Pa. and elsewhere and has already won 6-3 in USSC.
Plus his opponent is weak. People are not voting FOR What's His Name they are voting AGAINST Obama - nothing will change that.
I very much like our chances.
It's the same guy who nominated Romney and Reagan and every other Republican candidate - a plurality of GOP primary voters.
There is not some grand conspiracy - there's an inconsistency in the GOP electorate. Well, they've grown more consistent since Reagan - consistently shunning conservatives for moderates.
I wish to have my vote back. I feel completely responsible”,
Yea. I know how she feels. And I voted for McCain.
If you hold you nose and vote Romney, one of several things happen:
What you you honestly think the odds are on each of those scenarios?
One thing that will not occur is that the GOP gets the "NO MORE RINO" message. And I will be called an Obama SUPPORTER for even writing this.
Uh, sorry, a google search of McCain voters say they wished theyd voted Obama” yields 4 hits, and ALL four of those are copies of the original article that makes this bogus claim. In fact, their are ZERO hits of this particular phrase if you discount the article making the claim.
Because conservatives voted for McCain, elitists like Karl Rove have become convinced that conservatives can be counted upon to vote for any moderate or liberal that is nominated by the GOP. In other words, because conservatives voted for McCain, we got Romney as the nominee this time.
There is only one way to end this cycle. Conservatives need to vote against (and be seen to vote against) Romney or any other liberal that GOP elitists put forward. If conservatives openly reject and refuse to vote for and support Romney in 2012, the GOP will be forced to nominate a conservative in 2016.
Man, I hope you are right! I’m from Chicago... perhaps that has made me cynical...?
I feel your pain, but if Hussein wins again in 2012, there won’t be a 2016.
> Wheres the guy who says,I voted for McCain last time but I was wrong. I wish Id voted Obama?
He’s with the guy who came out of a firefight and said “Darn, I wish I’d brought fewer bullets.”
Brother I feel your pain, but we have to face the fact that whilst conservatism is on the ascendancy, it’s still not strong enough to get a conservative candidate. I wanted Sarah to run but this time I’m having to settle for romney because 4 more years of 0bama is unthinkable. we must continue our efforts to marginalize the rinos, 2010 was a good start and 2012 will be better
It’s the same guy who nominated Romney and Reagan and every other Republican candidate - a plurality of GOP primary voters.
Two words, “open primary”.
Democrats pick our candidates.
What I would like to see are those who thought there wasn’t a dimes worth of difference between McCain and Obama and voted 3rd party or not-at-all.
How did that work out for you? Regrets?
So you’re voting for Obama then?
No, I’ll be voting against him.
