Skip to comments.Losing Hope: Confessions of an Obama Supporter
Posted on 09/27/2010 7:53:51 PM PDT by Mozilla
Greg Smith, 46 from New York, has supported Barack Obama since the now-president announced his bid for the White House in 2007. But three years later the diehard Obamaniac has a sober admission: hes losing hope.
In 2007, the New York Post featured Smiths story he was a converted Clinton supporter that left his work as a hotel doorman to campaign for Obama. Obama read the story and asked Smith to introduce him at a campaign event and also tell his story. He did, began campaigning for Obama full-time, and even was present backstage during the Democratic National Convention speech in Denver.
Obama won the election. Life was great hope and change were alive. But now, reality has set in, and Smith back at his old job wonders aloud to the Post what happened:
Two years later, Im living a more sober reality.
My life is not better. Im a college graduate and I still cant get a good job.
Im back working as a doorman at a Manhattan hotel earning peanuts because my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and I need the health insurance again.
I share the same sentiments of Velma Hart, the woman who confronted Obama at a town hall last week, saying she was tired of defending him. The idea of leaving New York is even on the table.
Obama has let professional politicians take over the White House and our dream of change.

He asked for it. We saw this train wreck coming.
Dance with the one who brung ya.
He’s just a racist.
My life is not better. Im a college graduate and I still cant get a good job.”
What a dumbass
We knew that the true believers would be the hardest hit when the scales fall off their eyes and they see that Obama was smoke and mirrors.
Even after all that he still doesn't get it. He acts as though Øbongo was duped or left the back door open or something. He got exactly what he voted for even if he didn't get what he "wanted".
The typical bitter dregs that those who trust false prophets are forced to drink down.
As they say in Poker. Read’em and weep.
“Im back working as a doorman at a Manhattan hotel earning peanuts because my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and I need the health insurance again. “
A doorman at a Manhattan hotel earning peanuts? I call BS. Those are coveted jobs and stay in families/friends for generations.
I feel sorry for the wife with breast cancer, but this dolt got taken by hype. I have no sympathy for him.
Poor deluded fellow...Drank the Kool-Aid now doesn’t like the after-taste. Like Limbaugh has said... Invest in yourself...
We TOLD you this would happen.
Stop drinking the koolaide bro!
His czars are not politicians, they are Soros' crew.
Obama is a puppet president. Pelosi and Reid didn't write the bills they passed, they didn't read them, they didn't really know what was in them, and here is the kicker, neither did Obama. Listen to his speeches. Nothing but fluff. No detail. He doesn't know either. He defends them and signs them without really knowing what is in them either.
His job is to sell it. He doesn't have to have the whole picture, he just has to deliver the slogans. Did you wonder why he goes from vacation to vacation and never really spends much quality time governing? Now you know. He's Max Headroom.
And I bet your wife is sincerely sorry for marrying a HopeyChangey Loser who voted for a HopeyChangey Loser. You deserve no pity for your situation. You & 53% of the voters put us all in this dire predicament.
You're losing hope? Boo hoo. A lot of people who DIDN'T vote for this despicable bastard have lost a helluva lot more than you.
This moron still can’t bring himself to place the blame where blame is due.
“Obama has let professional politicians take over the White House...”
What did you get your degree in?
Underwater Basket Weaving?
Losing hope and stuck with only change.
You know, it strikes me that blame -avoidance and blame-assigning are at the core of black culture in America. This guy must’ve have really thought Obama would be sending him checks in the mail. The entitlement mentality on display.
A college degree in doormanism?
In this case, an Uncle Tom.
So Obama didnt have health insurance for his campaign staff?
He campaigned full time for Obama yet he wasnt offered a federal job?
Even now this dope refuses to learn about the realities of Obama and what this means to his life. As they continue to support the destructive nature of Progressives they will continue to get the change they vote for and not the change they wanted.
As the old saying goes, if you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas.
“Im back working as a doorman at a Manhattan hotel earning peanuts because my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and I need the health insurance again.”
Good luck with that. ObamaCare pretty much will mean an end to Avastin for the treatment of for breast cancer.
Well Obama got the women’s vote.
Union jobs at that...
I think you’re on to something there. All my adult life I’ve seen minorities treated to an “entitlement buffet” that really was more entrapping and soul-stealing than empowering or gratifying. Whole generations of people raised to expect someone to wipe their butts and clean their messes when (not if) they screw up.
It has to be hard on any sense of self respect.
Couple that with the insidious narcotic of the boob-tube that lulls you to sleep with sweet dreams and delicious lies - it’s a wonder any of them can function at all.
Who was it that said “It’s all good until you run out of other people’s money”?!
“Union jobs at that..”
Yep, exclusivity like the Projectionists Union.
Greg Smith, 46, from New York, is just about what you’d expect. He’s from New York. He has supported Barack Obama since the now-president announced his bid for the White House in 2007. But he has heard the words of the immortal Thomas Sowell, and has recognized the wisdom contained therein:
Those who look only at Obama’s deeds tend to become Obama’s critics.
Why do these stories keep appearing about supporters of Obama who supported him and their situations did not improve so they are disillusioned as if they are not going to vote for him again. Both of these clowns who were dumb enough to support him the first time will vote for him again.
That was Margaret Thatcher.
You bet he asked for it.
He LEFT his job to campaign for this goof.
WAAH. There are whole lot of us who have been trying to hang on to their jobs and lost them because of this angry kenyan and he left his job.
deal with it.
I have no sympathy for this guy. The Democrats in Congress (of whom Obama was one) created this mess. And they have only made it worse since Obama became President. He's disappointed in Obama, but doesn't understand even now that Obama is a disaster for this country.
