Post evidence of libs turning on Obama
6/6/09 | me

Posted on 06/06/2009 7:51:17 AM PDT by spacejunkie01

I would like this thread to be a compilation of stories from those of you who have friends or acquantances who voted for Obama, and are now souring and letting it be known.

I've been reading comments from time to time in varying threads from posters saying that they have family/friends, etc., that are turning on obummer.

Let's warm our cockles by assembling the anecdotal evidence here!

Hope so. But it is the Senate and House RATS that are more important. Without changes there, King Obama will never be stopped until he has totally destroyed America for many years to come.

There is a hardcore group of losers that voted for him that will NEVER change or find fault in him.

But there is a big mushy middle that duped themselves into believing he’s something he’s not. And now that reality is in full bloom I think there will be a big fall out.

I’ve talked to two guys lately that voted for him that are not happy but they won’t really verbalize it. They just play down what’s going on but they are certainly not the cheerleaders they were prior to election. I imagine if I was a fellow lib, they’d be more open to share their concerns but pride is still in the way at this point.

I have a few libtard friends that are really upset with Obama because he hasn’t bankrupt and taken over enough big corporations yet.

He's got a plan for Congress too - what need is there for them when you can merely annoint a Czar to do what they will not?

Does French President Sarkozy count as a lib? ‘Cause he just smacked down zer0bama in Normandy. You gotta see Sarkozy’s incredibly great speech! I’m sure it will be posted somewhere soon.

I was at a local construction union hall paying my $400 fine for being late with my dues due to layoff and overheard some reps in another room ranting about how they are getting screwed over by this Obama administration, How trillions are going out of the country to pay hedge funds while the states get narry a trickle for infastructure, while capital investors have pulled out of all building investments, they predict a little spurt followed by total collapse.

It’s interesting to note that Obama bumper stickers, numerous in the Spokane area before and just after the election, have all but disappeared.

My Dad...

Life long Dem. Pissing and Moaning about the increase of Taxes in Mass and how the eldery are getting hit, then segways into 62 trillion in debt, (my guess the guys he is hanging with are conservatives or he is listening to Beck or Rush a bit in his truck).

I told him I have a clear concious I voted for Palin.

I got a sigh of resignation, "ah live and learn, toruble is you can't trust any of them anymore, people don't feel like voting".

Same thing in my neck of the woods. I was just commenting on the lack of 0 bumper stickers the other day.

I know an attorney and his wife that are fairly liberal democrats that both voted for Obama. He was less enthusiastic than his wife. They have huge buyer’s remorse. He realizes that O is a puppet for the elite and is turning the country into an oligarchy. They have been stocking up on food, ammo and other forms of preparation.

Well, actually, while you have a point, there is another side to the story, last year:

After 8 years of the same Party holding the White House, it is unusual for that Party to win another 4 year term.

Also, we ran a HORRIBLE candidate. I do admire John McCain in some ways. However, he has made a career out of aggravating Republicans and kissing up to our enemies in the press. Conservatives were asked to hold our noses on Global Warming, on Immigration, on “McCain-Feingold” “water boarding” “Gitmo” and on many other issues.

On top of this, the MSM refused to tell the truth about the financial mess, which was CAUSED by Democrats -— and John McCain seemed clueless about how to explain it to people.

In that environment, it is amazing that the margin of victory was so slim. Also, the people don't like to be lied to or taken for suckers, this is why the "NO WMD" charge actually worked --- even though Bush really didn't bring up WMD's as much as many of the Dems in Congress, prior to the invasion of Iraq. Obama lied about his Muslim roots. Obama still won't show is Birth Certificate, which troubles some who actually believe he was born in the USA. Obama made many campaign promises he now can't keep. People are slow to admit that they made a mistake. People are also VERY QUICK to blame others for their mistakes, once the mistake is obvious.

Those of my friends who voted for obama are hardly socialists; they voted for the "first black president" so they could feel the warm fuzzies as a result. Now, they're feeling Buyer's Remorse because of his pro-illegal alien and pro-muzzie leanings.

I’m looking for signs of a turn in the tide here in midcoast Maine but so far haven’t seen it. Too many people looking for handouts. I figure it’ll happen but later in the summer or early fall.

Deep down, I think that a significant number of hopey-changey voters realize that they’ve been well and truly had. They’re just not quite sure what to do about it.

There’s a huge contingent waiting on their handouts, still telling themselves to wait just a bit more and it will come. I will almost enjoy watching their mugging.

No family or friends turning, but I see comments all the time on the net from people who voted for Obama who are now ‘disappointed’ ... all the way to outraged about him.

People at D.U. that are angry say he is just like Bush and not nearly Left enough for them.

Mostly they are pissed about Gitmo and no prisoner abuse photos.

There is also a contingent that wants Pelosi gone because she won't charge Bush/Cheney with war crimes.

I kid you not.

The thing about all these hand outs:

People like all the happy talk about “extra” benefits, when they still have jobs or businesses are still making money -—

Now, even with all of the hand outs Obama has promised -— most will make less money this year than last.

When you are doing poorly, even with a hand out -— the hand out tends to make you resentful and angry, not grateful.

The only good thing is that we’ve finally gotten McCain behind us. The media has been trying for years to foist him onto us, and with open primaries and ACORN, they were finally able.

It’s the same reason the media was playing up McCain’s airhead leftist daughter as the GOP spokesperson. Thankfully she seems to have passed her usefulness to the left.

I trend between 2 thoughts on the 08 election. 1. Better a real lefty fool than a faux Conservative fool, IOWs let the fool dogs catch the garbage truck and 2. McCain would have Sarah Palin for VP.

Some of the hopey-changey voters I have talked to are moderate Republicans. Sadly, they had no clue what changes they were voting for when they voted for 0. They were dissatisfied with Bush and saw McCain as more of the same.

Liberals will never turn on Obama. First, he did more for advancing and implementing the destructive left wing socialist agenda than any other politicians in history of our Republic. No other President even though of crossing the boundaries that Obama crossed such as the nationalization of private firms. Second, liberals are obsessed with power. Unlike some conservatives, they do not turn on their own once they have some disagreements. For them, power comes first and foremost and they want to keep at any price.

Still see quite a few in Mass.

In Nov. MA voters had the chance to eliminate the state income tax and make the Commiewealth live within its own means. It lost 70-30 and on election night I said, “This
is Massachusetts. We’re stupid.”

Now they want to greatly increase taxes, fees, fines, and tolls. Hey, the voters want it right? Sure, tax us even more.

And the 0 stickers are still on many cars. Even still some
Kerry-Edwards stickers once in awhile.

Again:

This is Massachusetts.

We’re stupid. (OK, SOME of us aren’t but many are.)

This is called wishful thinking. Making hasty judgments about anecdotal stories will set you up for a hard fall in the next election. If you want to dismiss Obama, you have to field a candidate with supporters who can take on the press. Reagan was the last such president. Twice he beat the left-wing (really die-hard socialists) press while for 10 years they called him an idiot.

During Bushes two terms, he did not beat the press with wit. His communication skills sucked. His philosophical inclinations grew more muddy. Only the memory of grubby, greedy, incompetent Clinton Democrats scared the electorate into voting for him. By the end of his two terms, the electorate had had enough of this bumbler and the Republicans.

No the humor was at the expense of Brian Williams and his coverage of Obama. Hits made at Rahm Emanuel, Timmy Geitner, Axelrod. But no mocking or poking directly at Obama, any of his missteps, blatently inaccurate statements or his idiocyncracies. I don’t see any change in Jon Stewart. Obama is off limits still.

TEd Rall is the outlier of Obama supporters.

The tell tale sign will be when democrat congressmen start to question Obama and that will because their constituents are hammering them about how incompetent they think Obama is and how problematic his policies are.

did you hear the Chaplain's invocation in which he prayed to the one and only God, and prayed through Jesus. Military chaplains can no longer pray in that manner in public settings, so I am told. Even some of our denominational leaders will no longer pray in such a manner - it offends Muslims and therefore is politically incorrect.

Of course, the Bangor area is nirvana for the ultimate consumers.

The liberals in my wife’s family are still staunchly behind Obama. My mother-in-law still believes that George Bush screwed things up so bad that Obama is barely able to fix things. When I asked her about what she thought about her electric bill going up 50% due to cap and trade she scoffed and said we will all have to tighten our belts so we can get through this and that we have all been living too high on the hog for too long. I guess she would be content going back to living like she did as a kid with no running water in the house and an outhouse out back. I got enough hell from my wife for talking politics with her mother so I don’t ask her what she thinks of Obama’s screw ups.
