This liberal now opposes Obama

This liberal now opposes Obama

As a liberal who voted twice for Obama, I have now reached a point of opposition to him. One of my reasons is a resentment of his having played the race card too many times. The result is that his presidency is hurting race relations.

Another of my reasons is that he shows no knowledge of how to create jobs for minorities or anyone else, but he knew how to bail out the big banks, and he knew how not to prosecute any of their officials.

Also, Obama expanded provisions of the Patriot Act, and illegal surveillance has occurred on his watch. Until he shows a desire for reform, whistle blowers will continue to blow his cover.

He continues to show ineptitude in managing our foreign policy in the Middle East. To make matters worse, he has protracted the war in Afghanistan.

Despite his rhetoric decrying the demise of the middle class, he has done them few favors with Obamacare. The poor get subsidies, the rich remain secure, but there is no subsidy for a vast chunk of the middle class. Should middle class people continue to take it on the chin, one more election with the same result could vanquish us.

Having erred in my vote in the last two elections, I will think long and hard before I select Hillary or any other candidate of either party. My trust has been eroded.

Not only that....

Sven-Thor Halvördsen, Chairman of the Nobel Awards Committee that meets every four years in Oslo, Norway, may be having second thoughts as to the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to Barack 0bama, an unprecedented grant of the notable award to someone who had done, well, essentially nothing.

While driving a team of huskies on his annual vacation dogsled race from Närvik to Kirkenes near the Arctic Circle, a family tradition, Sven-Thor was overheard stating “Vi virkelig skrudd opp, gav vi dette til en idiot.”, which loosely translated, means “We really screwed up, we gave this thing to an idiot.”

In a second comment, Sven-Thor said “På den annen side, ville jeg passe på å få meg en liten smak av at Sarah Palin, hun ville bare rette på disse lange kjøre hundeslede løp” which, translated, means “On the other hand, I’d sure like to get me a little taste of that Sarah Palin, she’d be just the right thing for these long dogsled races”.

Hundslede, indeed.

Just kidding.

” award of the Nobel Peace Prize to Barack 0bama, an unprecedented grant of the notable award to someone who had done, well, essentially nothing.”

The objective was to slap George Bush in the face. (This was quoted in an article as being stated by one of the Nobel committee members.) Essentially, Obama won by not being George Bush.

I think this is a Repub/conservative posing as a lib to try and get some thoughts across to the brain-dead Left.

NO real lib would be sick of the race card, ever. It’s the ace in the hole of liberalism.

These people are slooooow. I’m all for change of heart, but note that hope, though damaged, is still holding out the possibility of voting for Hillary!

The possibility! Should be a no-brainier N. O., right?

Sloooooow...

Rock Island was once a part of a massive, two state ag tractor manufacturing complex.
It's 90 percent gone now, thanks to the UAW.

Here’s my message to this liberal: You suck. You had the same chance I did to grow up, face reality and understand how things work. If it took you five years of this Kenyan asswipes treason to figure out he’s no good, it must be because you’re stupider than my dog and nowhere near as honest. Die scum.

Nonsense. He's still in favor of faggot rights and murdering unborn children. Open borders. Vending machine narcotics. He might switch over to libertarians, but he's no conservative.

Neither are libertarians.

Dear Liberal,

You were fooled. You were faked out because Obama is not, was not, who you think he is, who you think he was. You were fooled because you gird yourself with a delusion of grandeur. Alas, reality has touched your itty-bitty feelings with just a sprinkling of truth. Have no fear, you will slip under your rock of stupidity in short order. Wrap yourself with a blanket that has but one statement: It’s Bush’s Fault.

I can’t even stand to talk with people I know who voted for Obama but now say they are having second thoughts or have come to regret their action.

It is too late for redemption.

Gullible idiots who bought into Obama’s childish rhetoric bear responsibility for the destruction Obama has already done and the damage underway.

By the time he leaves office it will be impossible to restore the country to any semblance of what it was Before Obama.

Obama may go, but the air headed idiots who voted for him will still be here, waiting to be duped by the next snake oil salesman selling visions of liberal utopias and passing out free Obama Phones.

We had to replace the title you created

" A Liberal has buyers remorse.............. "

with the published title. We also replaced today's date with the actual date the letter to the editor was published.

Please do not create your own titles and only use the date of publication. Using only the published title and properly filling in all of the easy to use spaces when posting a thread, will help reduce the number of duplicate threads we have to pull.

Thank you.

Is it just a fantasy script I read, or do I remember Obama promising to have the US out of all its wars 90 days after assuming office.....the first time around in 2008.

Liberals should be picketing his golf course, but no, they're trying to find a liberal explanation for a peace-nik war.

” the big banks, and he knew how not to prosecute any of their officials.”

To be fair, most of them were just complying with the law, or Obama; or doing the same as government auxiliaries Fannie Mae, and Freddy Mac.

“Obama expanded provisions of the Patriot Act,”

Did he expand provisions? ...or did he just combine abusing them with making up his own, and ignoring limitations?

Well said.

If Encyclopedia Britannica was still producing their print editions they could fill several volumes with unkempt campaign promises, major screw-ups on foreign policy since he's been in office and out right lies regarding both.

I'm fairly sure that's why he spends much time on the golf course instead of doing his job.
