After Barack Obama’s FIRST election, there was a hysterically precious website called “I Am Sorry I Voted For Barack Obama.com.”
It seems as though that site has bit the dust and it’s a shame. The comments were a compendium of sincere regret, bottomless stupidity, righteous rage and of course – people screaming RAAAACIST– because “haters gonna hate.”
We are now 6 long years into this presidency that has been fraught with scandals, divisiveness and either purposeful destructiveness to America or just utter incompetence. Seems like the jury may still be out.
The world seems to be on fire, our Southern border is non-existent, Americans are getting beheaded by ISIS terrorists who vow to come to our homeland and strike us again- all while our hapless president plays golf, vacations, plays golf, goes to a wedding, fundraises, plays golf, gives speeches- and admits there is no strategy in place.
And lest we forget “The Lie Of The Year”– Obamacare. “If you like your doctor, you can KEEP your doctor. If you like your plan, your can KEEP your plan.”
The epic and controversial rant by conservative talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh’s “I Hope He Fails” is still ringing in the ears of Conservatives and “anoying Liberals from Coast To Coast.”
His meaning was clear to his listeners: he wanted Obama’s policies and liberalism to fail.
It seems almost incomprehensible to voters who paid attention to Obama’s background and ideology BEFORE the first election that people could be so blind to what he meant by “fundamentally transforming America.” Then the American people re-elected him. The reasons given ranged from: “Romney was a weak candidate” to “there are more folks looking for entitlements and free stuff” than there are Americans who are devoted to preserving our Constitution.
In any case, what’s done is done- and we have 2 more years to find out how this adjunct professor and community organizer will continue to make end runs around Congress with his pen and his phone and his attitude.
So as summer winds down this hazy Labor Day Weekend- we invite you to have your say – and explain WHY you you are now sorry you voted for Barack Hussein Obama. That old website is missed -time and circumstances have changed dramatically. Even some of the most Left-wing Obama devotees are “turning” on President Hope and Change. When you’ve lost Maureen Dowd– that’s quite an accomplishment.
Have your say in the comments section below.
And we realize that “haters gonna hate”- so you are welcome to voice your opinion as well. The First Amendment is alive and well here- and your priceless comments will add entertainment value.
