Any stories of Obama buyer's remorse?

Posted on 05/27/2014 11:31:09 PM PDT by eekitsagreek

Just wondering if anyone has stories of people with Obama buyer's remorse. I am not talking about those who are dedicated leftists, but those who are more of the moderate or independent minded voter who now regret having voted for him once or twice.

In my case, I met a woman who was absolutely taken by the way Obama spoke so eloquently. She was sure this man would change things for the better. She really believed that a new era had begun.

Now that she has seen what Obama has done, she has really regretted voting for him and is now fearful of what may come next. I asked her if this was the first time she was captivated by a guy's "sweet talk".

She did not say anything, but the look she gave me provided the answer.

I know many people who voted for the Obamanation twice.Not one of them has admitted voter’s remorse in my presence. Of course they are the ones who now want all political discussion to be taboo. I think it’s doubtful that they are privately remorseful. Their firm belief that they did the right thing in voting for a “black man” assuages any guilt they should feel.

Few will admit voting for him was a bad idea. They are in love with the ideal society, as opposed to the real society.

Went to a TEA Party rally back in 2010. Standing next to me was a black woman. Between speeches we struck up a conversation. Like so many others, she voted for Obama because she was caught up in the excitement of electing our first black president, but she admitted she really didn't know much about him. However, 2 years later, she now realized she had been wrong. She was particularly concerned about the economy — worried that she or her husband or both might lose their jobs, their home, their pensions — everything they had worked for.

The woman also was concerned that there were few people of her ethnicity at the rally and hoped that more would come to their senses. Since Obama was elected again, I guess not.

Nobody knew anything about this bozo. If they did, no one would have voted for him except Joe Biden. ‘Nuff said.

Most Obama voters either are not capable of critical thinking or do not value the skill if it make their man look bad. These are people who expect to be lied to by their ‘leader’ once in a while. They accept his lies graciously as Obama views them with disgust and contempt.

Several people I’ve talked to who said he isn’t the person he portrayed himself as in 2008 and were disappointed in his performance but none that were outraged (they were LIVs after all; they still don’t really have a clue like conservatives who have studied and scrutinized him and found him to be a double agent for a foreign government like we have...; )

I lived in Seattle for almost a decade so yes, I know many that voted for Obama. As it stands, I only know two that regret it and they only voted for him in 2008. Within a year one knew they had made a grave mistake. Within the second year the other also realized they’d made a grave mistake.

Honestly, it was a well played hand by the left. They suckered a lot of people who really wanted a change for the good of the country. Change they got, but it was for the worse. I know there are many more that have regrets but are either ashamed to say so or are scared of being labelled a racist. Very dark times we live in brothers and sisters. Very dark times indeed. I currently keep a low profile for a reason.

Best regards,

I think more women were captivated by his charming personality and the promises he would never keep and got conned when they voted for him. While my own personal experience has shown me women are generally more distrusting at first when they meet someone they tend to take the bait, hook, line, and sinker if a conman has a charming personality, is reasonably attractive and acts like he’s paying attention to them and their needs. I think this is the reason the majority of them were conned. And I bet many are having buyer’s remorse but will never admit it because they don’t want to admit they were wrong.

^ btw one of my jobs is investigating conmen and white collar criminals so I’m very familiar with their mindset and lack of empathy for their fellow man and the strong predator / prey instincts they have.

I have long wondered about liberal intellectuals and their silence.
Obviously they agree with Obama philosophically but what about his
total lack of honesty, competency, and the propensity for scandal
within his administration? Are they in fear of fellow liberal travelers,
too afraid to speak out? Or, is honest objectivity a thing of the past
among these people? Or, have they drifted so far to the left that
like true Soviet style communists they now define truth as anything
that makes their side look good and the opposition conservatives look
bad?

I know a guy who was in love with Obama from 2004. He ended friendships with anyone who called Obama a muslim in 2008. A few months back he said he voted for Obama only because he hated Sarah Palin. I guess he forgot that I remembered him wanting to go down on Obama after the 2004 speech at the Dem convention. He also must have forgotten that Palin didn’t run in 2012 when he voted for Obama the second time.

There should be a mental exam before you can vote. Say one thing stupid and you can’t vote for the next two elections.

You are describing my oldest sister to a tee. When I visit back east around Thanksgiving, I make an effort to say not a word about her Tiger-Beat like photo montage/ ‘Shrine’ to Obama. It’s disgusting and I’m a bit disappointed that she doesn’t even bother trying to see what’s really transpiring. We used to discuss politics, but we don’t talk of the Presidency since Novemeber of 2008. Like most libs, she cannot handle any dissenting views. So fine, keep your head in the sand, is what I’ll be thinking.

LOL! That must have been some speech that Obama gave in 2004.
He forgot that you remembered all about it!

None that will admit it. They are still stuck on their dream of what Obama is going to accomplish. Obamacare would have been perfect if not for the red states who won’t expand Medicaid, greedy insurance companies, and discriminatory doctors. They are still projecting their utopian fantasies on The One. When he fails, it is never his fault or due to any flaws in his policies.

I'm not sure that's correct. My friends, most of whom are well educated, voted for Obama twice and still think he's a swell guy. It's like a cult. Makes me sad to see such good, supposedly God-fearing people worship at the altar of this satanic being.

One of my friends hasn't had a paying job since Obama was first elected, but she insists that the economy is doing well. She points to those bogus unemployment statistics as proof of economic recovery. I said, if there are all these jobs, why are you still not working. She can't answer that, but she'll call me a hateful racist for not worshiping Obama as she does.

Every time I read this I want to scream. Barry can’t put a sentence together without a teleprompter. The woman you talked to is total idiot and a leftist.

Face it.
A critical segment of the Obama electorate are beyond having any remorse, if you catch my drift.

People did not vote for Obama because they were positive and hopeful. They voted for him out of negativity, darkness and sin. He was an expression of envy, jealousy, covetousness, anger, hatred, bitterness. They voted for him to advance their ugly agendas. They knew what he was and they knew what they were doing. Why would they have remorse.

After many years of trying to reason logically and rationally with emotional thinkers I have realized its an exercise in futility and no matter how much fact gathering you do, no matter how much effort you put into laying the information out that would lead a reasonable and intelligent person to come to the same conclusion it will not work because they have too much pride or are too arrogant to admit what is evident. They are the knee-jerking reactionists that give tyrants like Barack Obama and his kind his power. All you can look forward to is the day they they have to fall on their own sword and reap the consequences when they realize you were right and only trying to sound the warning bells and protect the other villagers.

Fear of being called a racist is a powerful motivator.

I know only one person who admitted he voted for Obama and that person is a single issue voter. He always votes for the candidate who wants more gun control, even though he is quite conservative on every other major issue.

I didn’t speak to my best friend for six months after I found out she voted for him in 2012. I think she voted for him because she & her elderly parents are all ill & on govt assistance. I feel sad that they will end up on pain pills instead of real treatments. All are pretty sick, so they won’t be considered productive.
I can’t talk politics with her - she’s now claiming that she too, was a community organizer (um, no, she wasn’t). I wonder who gave her so much kool aid.

My libinlaw is still totally in the tank for Obama and anything leftist/communist/democrat.

But, when I asked her in ‘08 what qualified Obama for president, her answer was basically that he spoke so well.

I have come to realize that Leftists operate by their own toxic concoction of 1) Omerta and 2) Taqqiya. 1) Never speak out to reveal the corruption they know to be true for fear of literally lethal consequences, and 2) any lie is acceptable in order to obtain the collectivist fascism they so dearly want to exist. #1 explanins why there have ben so few “tell all” memoirs from the Xlintoon and Soetero cabals; they will simply become victims of Arkanicide if they do. #2 is equally simple, they see endemic lying as part of the equation.

The joke is they think they will be the overlords in the new collective.

You are correct...underneath their superficial support for Obama is a deeply rooted hatred towards republicans who they stereotype as backward religious greedy gun toting retards along with the uber rich big business types who manipulate the retards.

Bottom line in their hatred of who they think we are will always justify voting for the democrat flavor of the month.

I don’t know if “still think he’s a swell guy” is qualification for the office. It certainly wasn’t then and still isn’t now. I didn’t know anything about him then and could never find out anything because he was being protected by the flacks in the mainstream media. Clint Eastwood’s empty chair speech at the 2012 republican convention was spot on.

Cults remove all logic and reasoning. Obama’s true believers are devoid of those qualities. They see him as their savior who wold give them the world if it wasn't for those pesky conservatives. Point out his mortality, his shortcomings and the fact that he doesn't give a rat's behind about them and all they can do is regurgitate the talking points given to them by the propaganda ministry. He's leading them into the abyss and they will blindly follow.

Helping put signs in yards and handing out pamphlets isn’t the as being a community organizer. Of course these are uually the same type people that think all kids should be “winners” on field day at the schools and receive ribbons.

I think she claimed this after working as a coordinator at a VITA site. *shrug* She’s strange. She has some conservative values, such as belief in gun rights, but then again, she went gaga over gay marriage equality....I blame the 3 strokes she had....
