Skip to comments.Any stories of Obama buyer's remorse?
Posted on 03/29/2014 8:36:36 PM PDT by eekitsagreek
I am just wondering with the national fiasco that is Obama if anyone here knows anyone who voted for him and now regret it. I know one woman who has and now seriously regrets that decision and is worried about the future. I also have met someone who was supportive of him and signed up for Obamacare and...well...let's just say he is not happy at the moment.
Any other stories out there in Freeperland to share?
Good question, problem is I can’t find anyone who will admit to voting for him.
Sadly, no not a one. The few I know are thrilled they voted for him. And, in any event, even those that don’t aren’t voting Conservative anytime soon.
There is a bunch of denial about it. The main stream media keeps 99 percent of the bad news away.
But the economic consequences have only begun. They have started the end of the world. It’s a house of cards coming down. As the cards fall, Obama is not going to look better.
Yes, I’m an apartment property manager. I had a young woman come in the office to renew her lease for May. I explained there was going to be a hefty increase. She almost cried. I explained that the larger than normal increases in part were due to our employer still wanting to provide us with heath insurance and the prices have skyrocketed during the last two years because of Obamacare. She told me it was her day off and she spend 2 hours on the phone trying to sign up for Obamacare and still didn’t get anywhere. She told me she voted for him because she believed him and she regrets it now.
Ohhhh, YEAH, baby! /s
I recently emailed a friend that found himself campaigning for the usurper in ‘07 (he’d been brainwashed living in a liberal city for too long).
I thought he’d come around so I emailed him the Marine Joke of the Year last week. He replied “F$&king Republicans”. That’s it.
That’s atypical, and I was behind a Prius just yesterday proudly displaying the ‘2012 Bama’ sticker. Most of those stupid stickers are gone, but these idiots are vested.
Frankly, I could give a crap about ‘buyer’s remorse’; I want those people to SUFFER for what they did.
Oh, they may be ticked off with him now, but it is because they did not get this or that freebie.
Regarding my above post, even though she regrets voting for Obama I’m sure she will continue to vote dem. She is one of only two people living at my community that receives food stamps.
We've gotten into many arguments and I just decided to pull the plug...just ain't worth it.
They're still out there. They've doubled-down on Obama and won't admit their mistake. That's pretty much been my experience. Back 'em into a corner and they just double-down on voting for Obama and that's that.
They have no logic or reason to continue supporting him anymore, and frequently don't. The issue really is they don't want to hear they were wrong.
If my boss knew of our conversation I bet he would insist she get an even bigger increase.
And as more that one has said to me, "If the Republicans, the greedy corporations, big oil, big tobacco, and the insurance companies would stop fighting him, Obama could straighten out what is wrong with the Country."
Fools never change, they only grow older. They are born fools and when they die as fools. A fool and an Obama worshiper and voter put on the same clothes each day.
I would say you need to find a better class of friends. When I learn someone voted for Obama, we part company then and there. I do not say anything because they have the right to support and believe whom they please, I just no longer have anything for them.
My mother used to be a liberal voter. Twenty years ago she would have voted for Obama, but she didn’t vote for him.
My best friend is from a big Irish Catholic Roosevelt-Kennedy Democrat family. Used to completely swallow the liberal media narrative but now she doesn’t. Didn’t vote for Obama.
Me, I used to vote Democrat in my youth. I wish I could say I’m no longer a fool, but I’ve pulled the lever for Republicans too many times since.
Probably one of the smartest things you ever did.
Add me to the list.
Most liberals I know are less enthusiastic about Obama now, but view the ongoing problems to be the fault of everyone other than their leaders. Bush, the TEA party, Republicans, bankers, evil corporations, white people, the 1 per centers... but never Obama.
As I stated earlier, thinking people change. You described intelligent thinking people, in my opinion.
People who were excited are STILL all in. If anything, they realized he is a politician, not a superhero god, but they are still in the tank. And Obamacare will out just fine once the kinks are worked out, according to them.
Yeah, I have a semi-celebrity best buddy who is admittedly and purposefully ignorant about politics. He doesn’t vote. (He’s just ‘above’ that sort of thing because it’s ‘not about him’). His wife is darling and giving in every way and I love her; she’s just a 38 year old skilled dorkette. Fast forward to today after wifey has voted for B-HO and hubby kept his head up his butt and we now have two very unhappy people whose insurance rates have gone up 200-300%. Teehee. Suddenly, the ‘celebrity’ hubby is thinking outside himself because his blithely democrat wife is bitching up a storm. I love them but have deep contempt for their politics and apathy. The good news is that ‘he’ is a conservative now but I just need to make sure the knucklehead votes.
Problem is is that the ones that voted for him are now getting all the free stuff so you won’t find many that are dissatisfied.
Bingo. No one wants to be told they are wrong. Our pride means too much. We are humans and sin crouches at the door.
No argument and way, way ahead of you...
Ditched all my lib ‘acquaintances’ already. I held out hope for him; he wasn’t that way before moving to the big lib city.
Last serious conversation a lib ‘friend’ wanted to have with me was over something in the news (>5-6 years ago). His wife brought up something that riled me about how she was defending the Palestinians. I shot off “Well, you know, there’s no such thing as a ‘palestinian’”...I was never tortured by another lib conversation again. Cowards.
Easy come, easy go. Good friends die, so-so ones just go away...c’est la vie.
No such thing as a ‘bad friend’; only someone that oughta grow eyes in the back of their head...
Actually, yes. I have a Boomer friend (mid-60’s) lawyer who, after leaving a company, wangled an unpaid fellowship with the State Dept last year. He had been in the FCC bureaucracy in the 1970’s and 80’s, and was a standard limousine liberal. After a year in Obama’s DC he came back to California very disillusioned. He didn’t have anything bad to say about Obama per se, but said that the whole crowd of 20- and 30-somethings that Obama brought with him and put into positions in the bureaucracy were frighteningly incompetent and self-centered. Said they were open about wanting to make lots of changes to American in their 3-4 years in gov’t, then use their influence to land a well-paying corporate job and cash in. They were making terrible decisions and no one cared. My friend is a liberal and blind to many aspects of reality, but he’s old enough to remember that it didn’t used to be this way and he really worries for the future. We’re close enough friends to where I don’t say “I told you so” - he knows without being told.
Sounds like my daughter unfortunately.
Guess I paid to much to send her to a college where they didn’t require any classes in critical thinking.
Always remember; “ If you try to argue with an idiot, they will just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience “.
I know one life time democrat who voted for 0 twice. She goes to our church and a few Sundays ago, one of our members asked if we could get some undocumented democrats to cut the grass during a congregational meeting. She was taken back by the comment. I also told her she was too pretty to be a democrat.
I sent her very conservative husband some facts about the moochers latest trips and the costs to the taxpayers. I also told him to make sure he showed them to her. Those facts are not on the evening news, and she had no clue. Now she admits to making a mistake.
That would be the approach I would take, if I knew any liberals. But I don't. Lucky me.
Those people will suffer.
So will everyone else.
Ultimate goal of the dimrats is to turn us into Venezuela norte.
