long time lurker, first time poster-
but because part what I do involves teaching music, I just have to comment. I’m a public sector teacher and provide a service in a competitive market- do i not deserve to be compensated for my work helping kids like Mrs. Obama’s (which I love doing as well, but it’s a SERVICE JOB) and years of training, education, and college degrees? I make a nice living, and I work hard doing it because there is a demand for it!!
Comments like that just sound so incredibly out of touch. I got my degrees on scholarship instead of going to the more prestigious universities, and I’m really glad I did that. She could have as well, and her going to Harvard does not make her a better lawyer than those who went to state school, sorry.
I am secretly hoping Hillary overtakes Obama- Obama scares me worse than Hillary, because if he wins, he’ll have this public mandate to actually institute all of these hairbrained, economy ruinining schemes and become this century’s FDR, keeping social security and adding massive health care boondoggle and other nonsense.
At least a lot of people already detest Hillary, and she’d have a harder time pushing her legislation through Congress, but I’m hearing a lot of devout republicans who disagree with Obama’s policies who still like the guy and can find nothing bad to say about him personally. That scares me, because I think he’s a disaster in the making. I hope I’m wrong.
It's a combination of his suave demeanor (read: "slick") and the fear of being labeled a racist for criticizing him for ANYTHING. Even McCain's PR guy has said he will absolutely not run any ads attacking Obama. The Obamas are race-card sharks of the highest order.
(Welcome to FR! Glad to have you on board.)
Welcome to Free Republic!
You’re not alone in your worries and concern about Obama- and part of the problem many of us see is his “likability”...it’s covering an agenda of socialism which he intends to convert us to...
