"Exhausted" Defender Hoped For "Whimsical" And "Magical" Response From Obama
RealClearPolitics ^ | September 21, 2010 | RealClearPolitics

Posted on 09/21/2010 8:22:10 AM PDT by i88schwartz

"Quite frankly, I thought my question would set the platform for a response that would almost be, oh I don't know, whimsical, magical, very powerful on the fact that he does believe that he's made progress," Velma R. Hart said on CNN this morning.

Hart is the woman who told President Obama she is "exhausted" of defending him.

I’d call tax increases as an economic stimulant is about as whimsical as you can get.

I do that sometimes with questions: prove to me something I doubt is there. Doesn’t happen often, but every once in a while it does. She did the job that the press should be doing every day. A hard, fair question straight over the plate. Can be a homer . . . or with Obama a strike.

Exhausted of defending him, but still in the tank for him. Bizarre.

Velma, if everyone - but EVERYONE - around you is saying the sky is blue, and you’re sure it’s ochre - maybe you need to rethink your beliefs.

Your Obama is a disaster both for the United States and for the values of common sanity.

Not a bad question actually ...

>> “I’m one of your middle class Americans. And quite frankly, I’m exhausted. Exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for,” a woman told President Obama at a town hall. [...] My husband and I have joked for years that we thought we were well beyond the hot dogs and beans era of our lives, but, quite frankly, it’s starting to knock on our door and ring true that that might be where we’re headed again, and, quite frankly, Mr. President, I need you to answer this honestly. Is this my new reality?,” she added.

She says she expected a “magical response”, but it reads like she kicked him in the teeth.

She is the living example of why Obama’s poll numbers will not fall below 42%. She is one of those “broken glass” Obama supporters who, even in the midst of their doubts will continue to cling to him as a liferaft. She still thinks he has made progress? Where??

Dear Ms. Velma R. Hart:

regretfully, you ain't seen nothing yet.
after all your hope is gone and only the
change is left in your pocket, then you
will understand what 0 meant by the hope
and change, thus then it will be too late.
I invite you to wake up to the real 0, before
it is too late for you and all Americans.

I’m not sure she’s still a big supporter and I’m not sure she’ll vote for him in the future. She has to live in her community and she wants to keep her job.

People who snitch and those who publicly embarrass the chosen one are not very popular in their social networks.

Statements from his supporters like this one, seeking “whimsical, powerful, magical” personal responses are freaky. I immediately thought of “Oz” and his image machine and curtain (Obama & his teleprompter?)

When the Left turned from the Church and turned against the industrialism, honesty and thrift it engendered for centuries - it raced right out and latched onto a succession of messiahs that lead inexorably to a final secular Catharsis (Lenin/Hitler/Holocaust) - so, in a sense it is as “Millenial” (or maybe anti-Millenialist) as any religion, but it will be impossible at some point to stop one of these movements on of these days. The Shadow Party will be responsible for whatever occurs. That’s the Party or -ism to beware of.

Dreams die hard. So many people still believe Obama is eloquent, deeply intellectual, and smooth. The truth is that he is nothing more than your average social worker, intellectually speaking.

What I couldn't believe is that Obama laughed when she was first making her statement. She was obviously being serious about her concerns and he's laughing at her. If it were me, I would have been very insulted.

The reason this Obama plant was ‘exhausted’ from defending Obama seems obvious to me: she works for a veterans nonprofit. Ya think those guys are happy with Barry?

This pic is not appropriate. If you had listened, she is a vet, a college graduate, and she and her husband both work fulltime jobs, have their children in private schools, which shows where her economic priorities are. Sometimes, the jumping to the sterotypical here is a little sad.

That’s all.

"broken glass” Obama supporters

This year, the broken glass Obama supporters are still defending their hero, but they are doing so from their homes. They will not be crawling across broken glass to vote for people from Obama/s party. The broken glass voters are all conservatives, and they are NOT happy with socialism and will not miss voting for any reason. We'll have to see how the next two years work out, but the next election could be just as one-sided as this looks if Obama continues to run into challenges that are above his pay grade (like everything tougher than choosing a dog for his daughters).

What kind of response did she expect? Her line of questions were far beyond Obama's field of expertise. He probably didn't even understand her questions.

The one point he did try to score with her is in regard to student loans for her children as they approach the college years. However, with the government takeover of the college loan business, it makes it less likely - not more likely - that her children will qualify for loans since vibrant competition for lending has been replaced by a government monopoly. And this same monopoly will guarantee that the costs of those loans increase.

I am currently paying 1.48% on my student loans. The new government rate begins at 6%. Are her kids better off under Obama? Hell no!

Then that makes her even more useless than the woman in that pic. She's educated, successful, and still fell for Obama. At least some of Obama's supporters are too dumb to know any better. She can't claim that.
