Posted on 11/13/2008 6:28:00 AM PST by pabianice
Went to have a haircut. There are four hairdressers/barbers at the shop. All voted for Obama. Today they were all talking about how angry they are with Obama for deleting all of his promises from his website and now talking about not giving them all the goodies they wanted from him.
Reality's a bitch, ain't it?
He will blame Bush.
Welcome to “Camelot”.
In a way ... that’s good ... we just may need those four guns.
They will get a taste of rule #1 in politics- politicians are less trustworthy than used-car salesmen or MLM pimps.
Unfortunately, all those tax cuts will be changed to tax increases. Just wait for that bag of “stuff” to hit the fan.
Barnum was right.
I wonder if they’d blame him for the credit crisis that’s about to crush the economy.
It’s actually started back in the 90’s, but Obama gets to be president when the s*** hits the fan in a few months.
’ Welcome to Camelot. ‘
Ya mean, “Sham-a-lot?” ;-)
Within months, there will only be two employees.
Then the business will fail.
Sadly the fools brought on themselves as well as the rest of us, the worst President they could have elected.
Thi will be a very frightening time for many people.
My husband walked out of his barber shop because the two barbers were arguing with the clients about how wonderful Obama was going to be. He went back yesterday and they were very quiet.
Maybe the owner told them to shut up and cut.
I’ll have to remember that if I’m still able to talk to the Obamatrons. I’m even considering changing stylists.
However, there are a lot of semi-conservative democrats, and even heretofore conservative republicans and independents who voted for the OBAMANATION who are also already having pretty serious issues with what they did.
This is one of those rare cases where lack of trustworthiness is a good thing.
If Obama is planning to do some of the opposite of what he promised his twisted supporters then there might be some hope that we won’t get a socialist dictatorship. If he made decent promises, that would be another matter entirely.
I was just thinking about that this week. It is pathetic that so many have put so much faith in a POLITICIAN. A lot of people are going to be getting a dose of reality in the next year or two. Politicians are not our friends, regardless of party.
That may well help our conservative cause, because many people will become weary of politics and government, as they should. In the end our movement is about limited government and distrust of government as a solution.
Oh, he’ll give some soaring speech and reclaim their adoration. Doesn’t take much to fool the rubes.
That's out of style. Now......
IT'S ALL PALIN'S FAULT
“My husband walked out of his barber shop because the two barbers were arguing with the clients about how wonderful Obama was going to be. He went back yesterday and they were very quiet.”
He should have gone ahead and had his hair cut the first time, then held their tip with a promise to “spread it around.”
My kids’ reported that on this past Friday, just a mere 3 days or so after the election, one of their very pro-Obama teachers openly expressed deep regret for voting for That One!!
Wow, must be a new record for buyers remorse!
The American Idol voters are sobering up and the hangover is gonna be a b**ch!
(It still amuses me that FR’s spellcheck flags That One’s sacred name!)
Yeah, I got up on Nov. 5 and my car’s tank was still empty! Can you believe it? Or maybe I should wait until Jan. 21 but, who will make the Nov. and Dec. mortgage payments? LOL
bump for later
I want one of those that says “Don’t blame me, I voted for Sarah”
Obama he was lying, maybe they don’t know what that means after the Clinton years.
No now we can say it is Zeros fault!!!
Just what I was thinking, too!
I want one of those that says Dont blame me, I voted for Sarah
See the link in post 14
I'm afraid you are correct.
I guess the MSM missed these four in their poll which found the majority of folks saying they will wait for the tax cuts until The Great Economist “fixes” the economy.
Wait ‘til the my grand kids find a less under the tree this year and I tell them that President Obama says we have to cut back so people in China won’t think we’re selfish.
While I was in the middle of getting a haircut the girl who was cutting my hair informed me that had already voted for Hussein. I kept my mouth shut until she finished to make sure she didn’t screw up my hair. On the way out I let her know that I wouldn’t be back, and told her why. That explained why she didn’t get a tip.
Which goodies in particular were they talking about?
I give these people credit for at least paying attention. One would hope there are more like them. In the end, however, I believe The Marxist Onada will throw them a crumb and they’ll become believers again.
Rhetoric won’t fill an empty belly.
The “obama demographic” is also notorious for instant gratification. It may be our ace in the hole.
Ordered a couple stickers from ya. Looks like a good business to be in, at least until the messiah gets rid of dissent!
Tell your haircutting friends, “If your expectations are unrealistic, you will be disappointed”.
Politicians just want to get a government salary. Most couldn’t compete out here.
“Welcome to Camelot.”
An Obama Administration isn’t Camelot. It’s Doctor Zhivago.
I’d like a bumpber sticker like that.....
You sound like you may be a veteran of the 70s debacle. These idiots don't have any idea how fast a door can slam shut behind you.
Hey! Don't you talk about my Massachusetts legislators that way! 8*)
Obama is reacting to the financial and economic reality facing him when he comes into office.
He’s smart enough to realize that a lot of the goodies he promised are off the table at this point- there is simply not going to be enough money in the budget next year when the effects of this recession really start to hit. The Federal government is going to have to tighten its belt. The tax increase will, hopefully, be pushed back so as to avoid the negative effects of sucking even more private money out of the economy.
Obama may have walked into a perfect storm here- if the economy does get as bad as some people fear, he is going to get the blame as the sitting President. We have to be fair and admit that the President has limited abilities to control the economy, but I doubt the electorate is going to accept that fact.
“Im even considering changing stylists.”
I saw my hairdresser on Tuesday who emigrated here from Iran ~25 years ago, and was glad to learn that she’s a pro-gun, anti-abortion conservative. She even mentioned that the Second Amendment exists so citizens can defend themselve against the government, and I’d bet there aren’t even many Americans realize that.
Or, as a brilliant Freeper put it the other day, “Scamelot.”
Nice, but we really need to pick up on the bumper sticker the dems rolled out in 2001 — “He’s Not My President”.
