Obama Blow-back Begins
Vanity | 11/13/08

Posted on 11/13/2008 6:28:00 AM PST by pabianice

FWIW -

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?

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.

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.

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.

Such people will never be satified and the dems count on such entitlement attitudes, constantly enticing them along, drawing them out.

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.



Many more designs here.

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.

“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!

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.

I'm amazed that you know a hairdresser/barber who actually is aware that Obama has a website, not alone that he deleted his promises from it or that he is talking about not handing out all his goodies. The hairdressers/barbers I know barely know which day of the week it is.

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.

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.

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.

“I’m 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.
