... even after his DISASTROUS performance during the debate.
She's Italian (came to this country at age 14 in 1956), and I just have a feeling that she misses Mussolini in some way and sees POTUS as a somewhat Mussolini-like figure. She's been all about "social justice" in recent years.
She's been retired for over 10 years and receives an average pension. She's by no means "rich". Very middle class, and dare I say perhaps even lower middle class...
In 2008, she supported Hillary until the very end, and eventually settled with Obama when he got the nomination. She LOVES him and his wife and the entire Obama family.
I cannot comprehend this.
Ask her to define social justice.
My elderly father, who loves being a contrarian, told me he is voting for Obama. So I told him to make other plans on Election Day, because I won’t drive him to the polling location. My mom won’t, either.
Its ok. Tell her you love her and then remove the distributor cap from her car 6am November 6.
Let’s hope Moms needs a kidney!
Anyone in my family who votes the commie ticket is not welcome under my roof!
Barry does resemble Mussolini in some ways when he sticks his nose up in the air.
Senility is tough to deal with.
it’s exactly what Romney said about 47%.
She’s on a pension, and she wrongly thinks she’s safer with a Big Goverment guy.
When the pension and the US are bankrupt, then what?
VANITY: My Mom, age 70, continues to idolize Obama...
Your Mom probably thinks she is too young to worry about Obama’s Death Panels. But no matter, she needs to study up on this. And so much more.
Strong dutch lady who is a lifelong democrat who lives life as a conservative. Born-again Christian. Strongly pro-life. Sends me e-mails that belittle Obama, but refuses to vote for ANY Republicans.
Oh, and has the TV tuned to NBC/ABC/CBS all day long...
how is her cooking? i might cut her some slack for a truly awesome red sauce on pasta, with sausage and peppers.
I have family that won’t vote as they don’t like Romney. If it weren’t for the fact someone may have to take care of me when I’m old and gray, I’d never send them another gift.
Pour a tall glass of cold water. Take a small sip and then throw the rest in her face. It’s called tough love.
Yep, remind her that she’s a death panel cadidate!
By age 70 she’s earned the right to vote for whoever she wants to though i will concede the overt state-run propaganda is intense for seniors now.
If someone is still stupid enough to vote for this atrocity a 2nd time then they should move to Venezuela, Cuba or some other hell hole that already sees eye to eye with thier stupidity.
Tell your Mom to quit screwing around with my money, my family and my country!! Stay in bed on election day!
I have two neighbors who are both 79. One is on cancer treatment for 4 years now & the other just had very expensive back surgery. They were both staunch democrats, but guess what? They are both voting for Romney!
Ever since, the mere mention of “Obama” gives her fits.
Let’s see, I’d mention to her “death panels”, 718 billion being cut from medicare, and medicare advantage being cut.
Death panels might get her attention.
But if she loved Mussolini, she might still stick with the usurper.
You must kill her before she votes.
But Obama, et.al.assured us that is just an advisory board with no power to do anything...
She’s your mom. There’s nothing you can do about it. Certainly try to influence her if you can, but it sounds as though you can’t. So whatever. Live a happy life, vote right, influence the people that you can.
Loving him and his family is a bad reason to vote for him. We are not looking for people to like and love and go to dinner with. We are not looking for royalty to admire. We are hiring someone to do a very specific job with a set of specific skills. Does she choose who to attend to health needs or who to repair her car and so forth based on how she FEELS about them or their family members? Idolizing leaders in a personal way is so last century, and century before that and so on. It leads to no good place...not ever. Surely she loves you even more.Would she then vote for you if the election were between you and Obama? If not, ask, why not? It could be revealing to her.
As an MD you oughta have your mind altering ways!
My 86 year-old mom enjoys trimming tree branches in her yard with her electric chain saw. The only thing she’d enjoy more is turning it on Zero’s scrawny arse if he ever got within the reach of the extension cord.
“Death panels might get her attention.”
I’ve tried that. Doesn’t work. The true believers don’t believe the death panels will happen.
The oldies who vote for nobama must have dementia.
Does she have doctors that she likes? Does she realize more and more doctors are either not accepting new Medicare patients, or not accepting them at all?
Tell her you need to take half of her monthly pension to pay for someone else's (who doesn't have a pension) out-of-pocket healthcare costs, groceries and iPhone.
Hitler promised social justice and look what happened. Does your mom care about her children’s futures and their children’s futures? Because if 0bama gets four more years THEY’LL BE ENSLAVED TO THE GOVERNMENT’S DEBT THROUGH EXCESSIVE TAXATION WHICH WILL DESTROY THEIR LIVELIHOODS.
Ask her why she came to America in the first place. It wasn’t because of commie govt, it was to get away from it and to experience freedom. With Obama she’s getting what her family ran from.
My mother is the same, as is my MIL. Devout Christians, yet you can’t tell them anything. They won’t listen. They deny everything and keep their eyes shut and their hands over their ears. Like children.
Have Mom read this:
The best Obama exposure site on the net:
The Obama File ...
The United States Library of Congress has selectedTheObamaFile.com for inclusion in its historic collectionof Internet materials
Just a few of the pages:
In a sane world, having the following comments out in print via Obamas racist books would have knocked him out of the running for president of the United States.(they would have crucified a white candidate for far less)
From Dreams from My Father, I FOUND A SOLACE IN NURSING A PERVASIVE SENSE OF GRIEVANCE AND ANIMOSITY AGAINST MY MOTHERS RACE. Barack Hussein Obama
From Dreams from my Father,The emotion between the races could never be pure, even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, THE OTHER RACE (WHITE) WOULD ALWAYS REMAIN JUST THAT: MENACING, ALIEN, AND APART. Barack Hussein Obama
From Dreams from My Father:THAT HATE HADNT GONE he wrote, BLAMING WHITE PEOPLE some CRUEL, some IGNORANT, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless image of a system claiming power over our lives. Barack Hussein Obama
From Dreams from My Father,There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying close together, traveling in packs, he wrote.It remained necessary to prove which side you were on,to show your LOYALTY TO THE BLACK MASSES, TO STRIKE OUT and name names Barack Hussein Obama
From The Audicity of Hope: To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The MARXIST PROFESSORS and structural feminists.
Then there is his love of Islam:
Quote from Barack Obamas book, Dreams Of My Father:
THE PERSON WHO MADE ME PROUDEST OF ALL, THOUGH, WAS MY [half brother], ROY..HE CONVERTED TO ISLAM.
From Dreams of my Father,IN INDONESIA, I SPEND TWO YEARS AT A MUSLIM SCHOOL..I STUDIED THE KORAN..
From Audacity of Hope:LOLO (Obamas step father) FOLLOWED ISLAM....I LOOKED TO LOLO FOR GUIDANCE.
From The Audacity Of Hope,I WILL STAND WITH THEM (MUSLIMS) SHOULD THE POLITICAL WINDS OF WAR SHIFT IN AN UGLY DIRECTION..
From The Audacity Of Hope,WE ARE NO LONGER JUST A CHRISTIAN NATION, we are also a Jewish nation, a MUSLIM NATION, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.
Dont believe it? Think these comments taken out of context? Here it all here in his own works;
Obama mocks, makes fun of the Bible:
Still need convincing?

I like the suggestion in a previous post, to take her to see the 2016 movie.
However, she very well might be a hopeless mental case of liberalism.
I have family who despise Jews.
Some family will be insane, and better never seen again. Just live with it.
I have a family member whose wife is second generation Italian.
Recently for their anniversary they wanted to take a trip to Italy. But his wife had an unusual amount of difficulty getting a passport. The application was on hold and seemed to take forever before eventually she finally got it.
Turned out the delay was due to the fact that unbeknownst to her, her mother had been a member of the Italian Communist Party. She must have been red flagged in the database, to coin a phrase. Italy had lots of Communists roaming around in the post-war era. So it’s not a shock they would gravitate towards Obama today.
My grandparents are in their 80s and it’s the same with them. Both are obviously conservative-mindedi.e., they’re against gay marriage, dislike welfare, oppose race politics, etc. Yet they still vote die-hard Democrat, apparently unaware that the party platform moved on without them some decades ago.
Just ensure that she knows that election day is November 7th.
find the George Will recent column that discusses the death panels in Obamacare - something that can be repealed only in during a window 2017 by 3/5 of the Congress and then never at all. Clearly unconstitutional but in place forever unless someone figures a way around it.
Does you father like the idea of death panels?
Nothing personal, but your mother’s a fool.
Because that's what another term will mean.
My father came to this country from Holland when he was around 6 or 7. He never made it past the 4th grade. He eventually took a job with the NY Central Railroad as a laborer, and eventually made it to track foreman. He retired at age 65, died at 72. He was a long-time Democrat, but I only believe it was because he’d lived through the depression, then became a union member with the railroad. He always used to say that the Democrat’s take care of the working people. He was a hard worker, good father, very patriotic, loved this country, and passed that love of country down to his children. Although he was a Democrat to the day he died, if he was alive today, he wouldn’t recognize the party and would probably be a Republican.
