[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Obama is starting to pull away : I had a great post, I posted it, re-read it, and deleted it. I sunk to the "insult" level and took my feelings out on a mediocre guitarist and your feelings for him. We didn`t just meet. You`ve known me here for years. My job is "on the road" in Canada, France, Germany, England, and Silicon Valley,CA. NOBODY tells me "what to think about things".......NOBODY!!!! I live in the real world and I see everyday folks around the world despising this idiot president. I would argue the exact opposite for you. You cannot be going out to coffee shops, restaurants, gas stations, super markets, health clubs, baseball games, kid`s events,.......none of this. You can`t be! Because if you were, you would hear NOTHING but vitriol for this incompetent, inexperienced, moron, in the White House, and how badly EVERYONE (with brains) wants him removed. It`s OK that you don`t watch the news, read papers, or see (real) polls. The informed folks are hoping you stay misinformed and confident and feel that you don`t have to vote.

Maybe among the people you associate with people hate Obama..but in the real every day world..even among the numerous unemployed people I come into contact with on a daily basis..no one is talking about how much they hate Obama. In fact..for the most part, most of the people I come into contact with on a daily basis feel contempt for what they see as an America that has been taken over by corporations and the wealthy.
Wait..there are a couple of people who hate Obama with a vitriol...my cousin and her husband. He blames Obama because he got convicted of a third drunk driving offense, lost his license, spent 6 months in jail, lost his job and because he had a hard time finding another job ( it took him about 4 months to find another job). He blames Obama because he wasn't doing what he needed to do on a weekly basis to receive unemployment. ( apparently hopping on a computer and answering a few questions was too much for him).
My cousin blames Obama for all the handouts he gives to "those people". Meanwhile, she's on food stamps, received welfare benefits, got a new refrigerator and freezer, is getting a new roof and got a new government subsidized rewrite of her mortgage which will now result in a 2 percent interest rate.
Sort of a disconnect there..don't you think?
For my part, every time she starts on Obama, I remind her that without the policies she hates so much, she would not have gotten all of the above "help".
I also remind her tough sentencing and mandatory sentencing is really a republican concept to protect from "liberal judges" . Needless to say..that doesn't go over too well.
