Barack Obama Gets Ripped by “Hope & Change” Voter at Town Hall Meeting … “I’m Exhausted Of Defending You”
If this is how people feel who voted for him, imagine how those feel who voted against him? It is fair to say that everyone is pretty much disillusioned by this President and tired of his act. Talk about your miscalculations …
How bad has it become for Democrats and President Barack Hussein Obama? Even the people who voted from him are tired of his act. At a Town Hall meeting that was packed with Obama supporters, the President could not escape the wrath of disgruntled, disallusioned Obama “Hope & Change” supporters as one woman said … “I’m Exhausted Of Defending You.” So is she a racist too for criticizing the President?
AUDIENCE MEMBER: Thank you very much. And quite frankly, good afternoon, President Obama. I’m deeply honored to be in this forum and so grateful for CNBC for making the forum available so you can speak to American citizens just like myself. I’m a chief financial officer for a veterans service organization and that’s here in Washington. I’m also a mother, I’m a wife, I’m an American veteran, and I’m one of your middle-class Americans.
Quite frankly, I’m exhausted. Exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the man for change I voted for, and deeply disappointed with where we are right now. I’ve been told that I voted for a man who said he was going to change things in a meaningful way for the middle class. I’m one of those people and I’m waiting, sir, I’m waiting. I don’t feel it yet. While I thought it wouldn’t be a great measure, I would feel it in some small measure. I have two children in private school, and the financial recession has taken an enormous toll on my family. My husband and I joked that we thought we were well beyond the hot dogs and beans era of our lives. And quite frankly, it’s starting to knock on our door and ring through that that might be where we’re headed.
Who thinks that Barack Obama was expecting to see this fast ball thrown at him at a stacked Town Hall meeting? Is it any wonder why Obama’s job approval ratings continue to slide. Obama is a disappointment to all.
I guess those who voted for Obama, including Peggy Joseph, have changed their minds about “The One”. It would appear that they are going to have to worry about putting gas in her car and paying her mortgage.
President Barack Hussein Obama was asked at the Town Hall whether the “American Dream was dead”. As Weasel Zippers stated, give Obama some more time and a Democrat controlled US House and Senate and it will be. I do not think we will be seeing Barack Obama talking to the people in a live setting any time in the near future after this debacle.
Monday’s town hall meeting started off on a sour note when the first questioner from the audience, a woman who said she voted for him, said she is “deeply disappointed with where I am now.”
“My husband and I thought we were beyond the hot dog and beans of our lives. … Is this my new reality?” she asked.
“I understand your frustration,” Obama said. He defended his administration’s efforts to help the middle class, listing achievements such as better protection for mortgage loans and health insurance for those with preexisting conditions.
But the hits continued.
A representative from the business community, Kenneth Langone, a co-founder of Home Depot, asked via a video feed for an explanation of what he sees as the administration’s anti-business stance.
Then a 30-year-old law school graduate said he’s no longer able to make the interest payments on his educational loans, much less able to have a mortgage or a family. He said he had been inspired by Obama’s campaign. But now, “that inspiration is dying away,” he said. “I really want to know: Is the American dream dead?
