You seem to be well informed about everything except Obama’s Marxist background, associations and statements, all well documented at the time, all of which trumps your (or anyone’s) noble excuses for voting for him in 2008. You helped elect a little wannabe stalin, friend of a domestic terrorist, parishioner of an America-whitey hating preacher. What did you expect? Seriously. The man had declared that the U.S. Constitution was a flawed document that granted the citizens what he and his Marxist pals “negative liberties”, and that he was going to fix that. Are you disappointed that he hasn’t (yet) managed to turn this country into a gulag without those pesky “negative liberties”?
Best wishes on handling your dispute with your father-in-law, an uninformed liberal like yourself.
True, indeed. I was a Kool-Aid drinker in 2007 and 2008. In fact, I was raised on Kool-Aid, was waterboarded with Kool-Aid throughout my college and post-graduate school years, and have only within the past three or four years begun the process of detoxification. My apologies for what I and my fellow Kool-Aid drinkers did to America in 2008. If we were in the same room, I suppose I could let you flog me. I did help put a stop to some of the worst excesses in 2010, and at considerable risk to my personal and professional associations, I did what I could in 2012 to convince people not to re-up. I figure I have 40 or so years left in my life to make up for my past political misdeeds.
