What is everyone hearing around the office regarding the election? I mean, particularly among liberals and independents. We all obviously know what conservatives are saying.
At my office, I've noticed the liberals are very quiet (except when whispering among themselves), and the independents hate Obama.
Dont know-Im busy working.
Liberals act like it’s not even an election year and some of the undecideds I know are stuck on clueless about everything else too.
I work out of my house so no liberals are allowed to work here.
Bob's gonna get laid off next week.......Shhhhhh, you didn't hear it from me.
I teach for a conservative Catholic school. Everyone’s either sitting out, or voting for Goode.
All the people who I know that loved Obama last time around just don’t want to talk about it now.
We don’t talk politics much where I work. We have too much invested in actually getting along to do that.
Just let the liberals know that they had better not succeed. If they do, the democrats and Obama will reclassify them as some type of percenter and come for their money.
That Obama was a darker version of Joe Biden
That Crowley has hair extensions
That 1.80 gas was a symptom of a terrible economy? (Obama)
There’s one big lib in our office. When O is down he’s cranky. Today he was in a great mood. Thought his guy had done a beat down on Romney. I just avoided him. Another guy in our office is an independent. He voted for O last time and had already decided he was not voting O again but would probably stay home. But today he seemed to be leaning Romney.
My sister in law has, since my brother’s death, taken down the Obama stuff from her refrigerator. I think he was the hard left, Madow loving guy. My other brother is totally Romney in spite of the fact that his younger son is campaigning for O.
I work in a one-woman office so the only thing I hear is my own voice.
“... and the independents hate Obama.”
And we conservatives don’t?
I loathe, despise, flipt the bird to, and f*rt in the general direction of this cretin/liar/fake/dork.
Strangely enough, even though Uncle Joe is about as stupid as Dan Rather, I rather like Joe.
A young woman with a toddler and a newborn in the basket said, "I'll be voting for Romney because of these kids". I told the older woman, "That makes two out of three for Romney." At that point a tattooed biker looking guy said, "Count me in, Obama has to go."
"So there you are", I said. "The soup aisle survey has Romney up 3:1"
On Monday, I went over to another department to talk to their supervisor about a problem we were having. She is an African American middle age woman. Anyway, about halfway through our conversation, she just went off about Obambi and the welfare problems of blacks...she sees it in her family and even in her dept where they are taking advantages of food stamps and welfare...she was very angry at the goverment giving all these freebees to unworking, lazy, cheating the system folks...she even called them n***ers...she is so fed up with it...she said she has never voted for a Republican, but this year she is voting for Romney.
My cousin in DC goes to lunch with "Dr" Jill and claims she's the nicest person around. Go figure?
They would be hearing me say' 'Get back to freaking work!."
Political talk is not allowed.
“Everyones either sitting out, or voting for Goode.”
I’m sure obama will appreciate their support.
I work in a call center and the majority of my coworkers voted for “hope and change” in 2008. I haven’t seen the bumper stickers or t-shirts this time around. The silence has been golden! We are currently signing up for medical benefits, which have increased around 4% due to the Affordable Care Act!
I misread the headline-—thought it said “What are you wearing around the office?”
I was about to yell, “Whee! A fashion thread!”
We fight cafeteria Catholics all the time. We don’t have time for folks like Romney who give them succour by forcing the faithful to assist the unfaithful in their actions.
No I'm not. :=)
I work independently now that I've retired. I have a "Romney / Ryan - America's Comeback Team" bumper sticker prominently displayed on my computer. At the coffee shops where I do most of my work, I've gotten several positive comments and no negative ones.
There's also a noticeable absence of Obama 2012 bumper stickers compared to 2008. Being in the very, very blue south SF Bay Area, it seemed like every other car had an Obama sticker last time around. I've only seen a few this year.
But - living in the middle of LA-LA land, I hear lots of conversations from liberals in markets, restaurants, and various other high-traffic businesses.
Bottom line - a good many democrats are not very bright, as you can immediately tell as soon as they open their mouth. Those that do are mostly still in love with the Zero.
On the other hand, many are quite angry at the big O - and make quiet snide remarks about wanting him gone, like 'I'm not gonna vote for that bastard this time.'
I’d love to have Joe as VP again, without Obama. Joe is endless entertainment.
Most days I can’t remember who is running with Ryan.
Excellent those independent voters and liberals that are demoralized will not vote. And those that tell their friends they wont vote, those friends will not either.
I’m retired but my wife works in an office with many blacks, so she does not discuss politics. Behind her back they call her Nancy Reagan. Nice, huh? (Little do they know that she adores Nancy Reagan).
People in my Yacht Club are 90% Romney - in 2008 it was about 50/50, with some wearing Obo T shirts. None now.
My brother who voted for Obo in 2008 is going for Romney.
A few months back they were told that if zero was elected and obizmal care was not repealed, they would all have to take pay cuts or worse, lose their job, as there would not be enough money coming in from our clients to pay for what this administration wants us to do...we serve clients who are all going to be going through the same ordeal we are.
The fact that politics are not discussed in the hallways is a very good thing...IMHO. These folks want their jobs.
Will not say anything. Must keep my mouth shut...:)
Sounds like a lot of people watched the ball game instead (hosers).
I take that as a positive omen. It's tough to admit when your hero has feet of clay, but she obviously figured it out.
What kind of outfit do you think this is??
thanks for sharing that small victory!
5 women in my office. All romney voters. My wife and i have hinted to them also. They understand what is at stake. Subtle change - waiting room used to have nbc on. We have changed it to fox news. In 4 weeks, only one person has asked to change channel.
From my one sample there seems to be no overwhelming enthusiasm for Obama this time around.
My office is a lynch mob for Obozo and Democrats for the most part.
Wow! I am impressed with this, and it gives us hope that there are people who do pay attention!
The people at my yacht club seem to be trending towards Romney. One guy was for Obama, so I pedaled my yacht at him and the swan head knocked him into the pond.
Nothing, not a peep - last cycle there was zer0 crap plastered all over the place in private work areas. I have seen nothing inside the building. A few bumper stickers in the parking lot, but very few.
LOL. Times are rough all over.
Stuff like this? This is Texas. We just want the yankee liberals on both sides of the line to just leave us be. We don’t want Obamacare. We don’t want Romneycare. All we want is an actual social conservative.
Do you know how damaging that clip of him vs Teddy Kennedy is for us? This is his health care baby that we are fighting and Romney’s on the side of the enemy. Both of them are. We cannot support either one in good conscience.
90% for Romney in my office and in fact my whole organization. We’re all govt employees and contractors in the defense community and it’s basically monolithic for Romney. We rarely talk politics because there’s no reason to. We’re all on the same page.
Why just today...I had Prius....run a red light...I was turning left and ended up following...the closer I got the more the reason for the idiot driver....yes...obama stickers everywhere....it’s true...liberals are not very attractive!
Interesting anecdote about the Af. Amer. supervisor. . .
It sounds like she volunteered the info; or so to speak started the political conversation.
I was delivering an order to an Af. Amer. lady, and I don’t talk politics with my customers. She brought it up! She wondered what I thought, I was gentle with her but said I could not support Obama. She felt times were too hard and she could not vote for him again. She said she plans to vote Romney, or not vote.
He took my stapler and never brought it back.
“It’s tough to admit when your hero has feet of clay,:”
It is tough, and that’s why I was gentle with the elderly black lady. I understand it meant a great deal to her to see a “black” man in the presidency. But we can’t park our principles or our sanity at the door.
