Do you know any repentant Obama voters?

Posted on 06/02/2012 8:26:18 AM PDT by MNDude

I know a guy who voted for Obama because he said "you have to admit, we really need change." Now he claims he's the worst President ever and he can't wait to vote against him (although I guess his wife didn't let him sleep with her for a month after voting Obama)

I knew several senior citizens who voted for Obama out of anger at Bush who now hate Obama because of the ObamaCare thing.

Any of you know any repentant Obama voters? Anyone ever heard of a McCain voter now supporting Obama?

Not one.
Even those who think he is terrible, are still going to vote for him because they are terrified that Republicans are going to oppress them.

I met two young people at Home Depot who were buying materials to work on their new office. Somehow we got to talking about the election and they said they both voted for Obama because they were caught up in the rock star hype and really didn't listen to the issues.

They were just starting their business back then and some thought thought everything would come up roses with him in the White House.

They have been watching the news and listening to his speeches for three years, they said and are not going to vote for him again.

Many.
All of them young, white, professional, moderate independents. They feel obama ruined their children’s future.

I know not one repentant Obama voter.
I suspect there are few.
Never in history has there been such blind devotion.

Lot of that going around. Young people of all persuasions are seeing harder times. Coming out of college things look rougher than ever and the gloss is off the hype.

It’s a demographic that will see one of two major occurrences: lower voting for Obama moving to Romney and others who don’t go to vote.

Thanks for sharing your depot at Home Depot. Perfect place to hear what people think, an apolitical environment where people casually express thoughts.

and that the GOP is blocking all the things that would help us

and the worst?
when they sau because romney si wealthy he doesn’t “ get ‘ the rest of us

i so hope this is all public shtick

Nope ! Not one. I live in the Peoples Republik of Maryland. There is no such animal. In fact I have seen plenty of Obama 2012 bumperstickers and only one Romney sticker. Interestingly enough there are a handful of Ron Paul loons still out there.

I heard one man say he was “coming out of the closet against Obama” - like it took a great deal of courage to say he was against Obama this time. Is there some reason disappointed voters are hesitant to speak their minds?

I'm pleased to say that my 80 year old mother will be voting Republican for the first time in her life this year.

She voted for the maggot Hussein because of the D next to the sissy's name (may eternal damnation be upon it).

She has finally realized that the Rats are socialists, and that socialism in all its guises is destroying our nation.

Better late than never .. and I gotta believe there are millions more just like her out there, though many would never admit to it.

For that reason alone, put about Ø faith in any polling taking place between now and November.

Even given the CF of Milt, that communist piece of mulatto excrement is going down in FLAMES !

Yes, have definitely spoken with a few. However, I have not talked with a single Black former supporter of Obama. I keep reading and hearing that there is some disenchantment among Blacks with Obama, but I am not seeing it. On election day I don't expect his support to decrease more than 5% among Black voters. I will be surprised if it decreases that much.

That's a fact. I know many that voted for him and refuse to admit their error in judgment. However I sense they will secretly vote for Romney.

I personally know of 12 including:

My 84 year old parents who are lifelong Democrats (LLD's).

An Attorney, LLD who is so appalled by Eric Holder that he switched parties.

My Son's in law's, LLD's main reason: economic failure.

My brother - another LLD and former Union steward (now retired).

“Not one.

Dittos to that, in fact what I have seen is that some conservative friends will just sit out the election saying the Repubs are just as bad as the Dems.

I know some Obama voters who have too much personally invested in him, who identify strongly with him, who feel that to vote against him would be admitting that they were stupid to fall in love with him in the first place.

Their pride won't let them admit their error.

However, I'm wondering if a lot of these types will end up staying home, and not voting for anyone in November...

For my Kennedy-democrat parents, his ‘coming out’ in support of gay marriage was the final straw. My mom told me recently she is probably going to vote for Ron Paul. I told her that would make her grandchildren very happy.

I gave up a while ago arguing for the republican side with them, no traction at all. Once I switched it up to blaming things on the permanent politicians, “they ALL stink, they all need to go” they were much more receptive. If I can’t gain votes for Mitt, at least I can take away votes from the Kenyan.

I’m going to a clan reunion in Atlanta next month. It’s going to be very interesting to see how many of my wild-eyed life-long demonRat cousins are still as slobberingly devoted to hussein. My brother is a lost cause, but my sisters more than make up for him. Being a bunch of Detroiter Micks, we voted rat for many cycles before seeing the light.

I suspect even if Obama delivered everything he had promised he would have trouble getting the vote out close to the numbers he achieved in 2008. Some people wanted simply to make history.

Same here, not one. It’s a true mental disorder.

They can be easily spotted by the wrist casts.

One I know fell down and broke both wrists, while the other showed her true colors. Get that ‘Her’. She goes out and takes motorcycle riding lessons and gets her license.

She next takes delivery of a brand new Harley Sportster (bad choice). Starting it up in her driveway for the first time, she puts it in gear and looses control driving through the next door neighbors privacy fence both totaling the bike and breaking her wrist.

I know a very obviously gay guy who is furious with Obama over his giveaways to the parasite class, while he’s struggling to make a living.

I don’t know if Obama bought his vote back with his gay marriage pander. I certainly hope not.

I know another guy who said he was always a democRat, but Obama has pushed him into the Tea Party.

I know many, and they are very remorseful, and I rub it in, I told you so, didn’t I tell you, you’re going to regret it, on and on like that. They take my rub in stride, and some even respond, yeah you told me...it is encouraging to see how many are in regret.

They are no longer fooled by spin, it is encouraging and refreshing indeed.

I’m not sure however, my experience is only typical of those I know, and not all but most, your experience with those who voted for Zero may be much different.

I know several who admitted to voting for 0 bummer for his rock star image. Not one will vote for him in Nov. There have been a lot of callers to KLBJ in Austin recently who admit they were wrong about voting for him because of white guilt.

My daughter warned several of her college friends about his socialist views. They are finding out how hard it is to find work now, and are not happy with the won.

My friends who voted for Obama in 2008, will vote for him again. One of them volunteered at Obie’s inauguration, and told me she will do so again in 2013. Another one has been unemployed for the last several years. She claims her problems started under President Bush and that the reason she is still unemployed is that those heartless Republicans in Congress are fighting all of Obama’s programs. She actually hopes when Obama is re-elected, he will “do away with Congress” so he can accomplish everything he sets out to do without further restriction.

These are true believers. I just can’t talk about anything political with them. I tried to explain to one of them about the death panels under Obamacare. I was told this was propaganda perpetrated by Fox News and the Republicans, and that “they will never happen.” It’s frightening because these friends are well educated. They have the internet so they should be able to do their own research, but they won’t. Whatever lies Obama tells them, they believe without question.

I knew several senior citizens who voted for Obama out of anger at Bush

My father-in-law watches television news and parrots what he sees there. Of course seniors felt that everything was Bush's fault. They saw it on TV. Right after Judge Judy and before America's Funniest Home Videos.

2008 election was a referendum on BUSH, it had nothing to with Obama... Obama has governed as though he got a massive referendum, and he didn’t, his election was a rejection of Bush, nothing more.

This election is going to be a simple referendum on Obama, it really doesn’t matter who the R candidate is.. all the R had to do was put up someone who could not be painted as more dangerous or scary than Obama.

Obama is going to be spanked, I am no fan of Romney, and am frankly disgusted that the R party is putting him up, but he’s going to win, and win big. Hell, Mickey Mouse would win and win big against Obama. He’s got a national peak, if he runs a flawless campaign of 42-43%. That’s it, and frankly he’s not running remotely a flawless campaign. Just look at him, he’s romper room. He’s out there trying to attack Romney’s economic record, when his administration has the sole distinction of being the only administration in the modern era that will end its term with fewer people working that the day he took office! Even CARTER managed to better than that! This guy and those around him are fools.. abject fools.

He’s running his campaign as though he actually won in 2008 by what he believes in, and thinks america wants it and more of it.

The guy is toast as are a lot of Democratic Senators and Congressmen this fall.

He was taken in by the lies, especially the one about cutting the deficit in half.

He also has seen the Space Coast decimated due to shutting down all the space programs.

He is voting ABO this time around.

I hear ya. It really is an incurable disorder. My liberal sister and her husband were visiting over the Memorial Day weekend. We got into the inevitable political discussion. She thinks the stimulus didn’t work because he didn’t use enough money. If re-elected he can put another trillion into the economy and really get it going. They are educated but obviously not in economics. And her husband supports socialism because that’s the essence of the Bible. I can’t wait to hear from them Nov. 7
