I know a guy who voted for Obama because he said "you have to admit, we really need change." Now he claims he's the worst President ever and he can't wait to vote against him (although I guess his wife didn't let him sleep with her for a month after voting Obama)
I knew several senior citizens who voted for Obama out of anger at Bush who now hate Obama because of the ObamaCare thing.
Any of you know any repentant Obama voters? Anyone ever heard of a McCain voter now supporting Obama?
It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.”
~ Mark Twain
Seriously. That's what a lot his voters thought..they would get something for nothing. It was a new world where Obama was going to take stuff from the haves and give it to the have nots.
I think they're all realizing they got played.
Why do you have friends with dangerous totalitarian impulses. They'll rat you out to the thought police in less than a second.
One for absolute certain - a retired dude with a libertarian streak who didn’t like Bush.
I think there is a lot of regret among Obama’s white supporters. Among black and Hispanic supporters, not much at all. So we’ll see if his shrinking white support is enough to put Romney over the top.
IMHO, it is a spiritual issue as well as a political one. Intelligence, education, and readily available facts have little to do with this deluded state...
"The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness." - 2 Thessalonians: 9-12
I have not seen a single obozo 2012 bumper sticker, but this is Texas. I haven't even seen an old obozo sticker now that I think about it. They must have all gotten new cars, hybrids or electric thingies, or not so Smart cars. Yeah thats the ticket, they got new cars!
It is an interesting phenomenon. If there are any repentant Obama voters around here, they are likely too embarassed to admit voting for him in the first place.
The rest keep doubling down and believing the BS in the MSM.
I know a couple of people who voted for him and say that they won’t vote for him again, but they still say that McCain would have been worse. They all say that they just didn’t know...
I know several. My in-laws have always been die-hard democRats. We’ve had several heated debates over the years about politics.
Now they’re suddenly adamant Republicans. Thanks to Obama. And yes, the voted for him in 2008. Bumper stickers, the whole shebang.
That may be what he has been taught by Liberals and believes, but it is manifestly untrue and anybody who studies it can easily see otherwise.
The Bible is all about personal responsibility and accountability. The call for individual thrift, diligence, hard work, and property ownership are legion. The only place I can see where socialism might be inferred is in the early Church in Jerusalem - and that was for a very particular time, place, season, and reason. It only lasted a very short time.
I have a friend who’s the manager of a busy diner. He sometimes appears to be all things to all people, since he knows chatting with everyone is good for business. But he privately told me that many Obama-voting customers have switched their loyalties. This is in a very liberal neighborhood.
When I see my family next time, I am going to try to be the good salesperson who steps back and leaves a lot of space for the customer to make up his mind. I have observed that that is a good way to close the deal, rather than pressure and aggression when you sense that agreement is near.
Repentant would be racist. Unhappy, but then again, its still the GOP and Bush’s fault.
My girlfriend voted for Obama but she will vote GOP this fall.
We met after the 2008 election. She had always voted ‘Rat and didn’t really understand politics.
She is honest and moral and is a small business owner. She is not some environmentalist or feminist wacko.
But she has always lived in the Bay Area and been surrounded by leftist nonsense and previously just kind of went along in a moderate way.
Now she sees things quite differently and talks with her girlfriends about how leftism ruins everything.
Yes, two wacky lib acquaintances have now seen the error of their ways.
However, I heard that a wacky ex-coworker says he needs another chance. Another sat in my livingroom whining "but he's blaaaaaack and he caaaaaares about people and we don't need anymore old white men!!!!!!" It was all I could do not to grab him up and kick is sorry behind out the door though I did explain to him how the cow ate the cabbage.
Anyone ever heard of a McCain voter now supporting Obama?
No, not one.
I really don't see how he can win an honest election. "Honest" being the operative word.
I don't expect to ever see conservative or GOP bumper stickers in 'Rat areas (and few in any areas).
The reason the leftists embrace destructive criminals like the OWS types is to intimidate decent people from expressing their views.
They don't want to look stupid for having bought into the hype to begin with.
They don't want to be called racist.
They don't want to be verbally abused or physically attacked by leftist scum.
I live in a heavily Democrat stronghold. Very difficult to find conservatives around here.
There are a few old friends who distanced themselves from me after Obama came to power. These were holdovers from my hippie days. I grew up. They didn’t.
As for the ones who remain, as long as we don’t talk politics, we get along fine.
I know a lot of leftists. None will vote GOP and most will probably go ahead and vote Obama.
But none of them, not a one, is buying Obama's crap any more.
Everybody knows the guy is full of it.
There are offices where people have posted shrines to BO. Think those are being taken down now?
Socialism is precisely contrary to the Bible.
We Christian conservatives need to do a better job of getting this message out.
Why is she even asking you if she "has to" vote for BO, or anyone else, for that matter? Isn't she a grown-up free to vote for anyone she wants? Who brainwashed this poor woman, the pastor at her church?
I can’t find anybody who will admit to voting for Obooboo.
I know of one who has been unemployed so long he has helped lower the unemployment numbers by no longer being a statistic.
He voted 0dumbass ‘08 and now regrets it.
I know several McCain voters and Obama voters who want a third choice.
As before there isn't one.
Brother in law (surgeon) and hyperventilating sister in law (PHd Education) living in MA; both have jumped off the good ship obambi.....
Well, I know that you’re just kidding, so it’s ok.
I must say, I was once in the same boat for quite a while - before I actually became a Christian and started reading and understanding the Bible. So I understand this. There are lots of people inhabiting church pews and doing all sorts of things in churches who are not Christians. They are "cultural" Christians, not Christians in fact.
...I guess she so believes the lies, she will close her eyes to the depravity.
It is clear the practice of homosexuality is one of the many sexual sins specifically listed in the Bible. She obviously has not read her Bible either closely or even casually. Likely she feels quite smug about her "tolerance" to homosexuality (after all, it is now the "rage"). It's probably not the only sin she is "tolerant" about, either. But then, she is not looking at it through God's holy lenses but her own faulty human lenses, which she prefers.
Everyone I know who hated Bush and were certain Obama would be soooo much better NEVER start a conversation about Dear Leader. They won’t even say, “At least he’s not as bad as Bush.”
I know a former precinct chair for Obama who told the party to take a hike when they came around asking if he’d be the precinct chair again.
I was talking with a group of folk the other day who were all trying to remember what it was about Bush they were so upset about. They can list their grievances against Obama.
I kinda feel the same way, but I'm willing to at least jump out of the fire and back into the frying pan!

Not me. I don’t associate with folks that stupid.
An acquaintance said to me one day after the occasional discussion about the state of things, “and I voted for that ‘N’,too.”
Several union folks I know aren’t doing it again. Others I know who did for lesser of two evils would have gone Santorum over Obama due to life and guns, but I don’t think he’d go Romney.
Dems tell us what kind of gas we can put in our cars - how much water our toilets can use - what types of light bulbs we can buy... They've soaked our children's clothing with so much fire retardant - by law - that our kids get allergies and autism. Liberals control how energy is produced and force stupid public transportation on us that no one uses. The force food choices on school kids - most of the food winding up in the garbage can. Dems have devalued our vote - by letting anyone and everyone illegal or not - vote - and fought our right to stop illegal votes. There's more... Dem are control freaks.
As for Republicans - other than the scare stories about what 'might happen' there's almost nothing. Tell me 3 things THAT HAVE BEEN DONE by Republicans that forced change on Democrat's lives that they resent... Three. Not liberal wet dreams about might of, could of, would of, should of etc. THREE CHANGES FORCED ON LIBERALS THAT they don't like - forced by Republicans. Just like my list above.
Silly man, liberals are not rational.
She actually hopes when Obama is re-elected, he will do away with Congress so he can accomplish everything he sets out to do without further restriction.
These are true believers. I just cant talk about anything political with them. I tried to explain to one of them about the death panels under Obamacare. I was told this was propaganda perpetrated by Fox News and the Republicans, and that they will never happen. Its frightening because these friends are well educated.
Leftists are sometimes educated but they are poorly educated and stupid. Very stupid. Follow the crowd stupid. Vote against my interests stupid. Hurts to think stupid.
Did I say they were stupid?
I know one person for sure - he said he was young and got caught up in the hype. He’s an econ PhD student and Obambi’s economic polices are making him crazy.
I’ll say this - I’m a professor with all grad students. I try to keep politics out of the classroom, but during the election, I had an idea that a good number of students were for Obambi, based on casual conversation, stickers, pins, etc. Obambi came here several times and students would talk about his visit.
What I find interesting is that they don’t talk about him at all. You’d think that if they were happy with him, they’d be talking about how pleased they were with this or that. They don’t even talk about the student loan stuff. I bet that many of those that bother to vote, will not be voting for the child king this time around.
No, but the only thing I said was “You were trying to jump how many buses”.
* She voted for him, darned near ruined the marriage.
* But w/ hubbie can't finding work and a host of other issues. She is now one of us
The transformation is stunning....
My father in law is a retired UAW worker. He is a rabid Democrat narcisist. My wife and her brother are die hard tea partiers like me. So, when we get together for family gatherings I get a cold refreshment and popcorn and just sit back and enjoy the fireworks.
Thing is, this friend is 65, a little older than I. In our day, we may have been indoctrinated to some degree, but schools and colleges back then still taught. I can understand such BS coming from a product of today’s schools because these youngins are brainwashed, but I would think the ones from my day and older would have more sense. Maybe it’s something in the water.

They are bred in the bone stupid. Their leftist religion does not allow for reason, reality or goodness. The old lefties are the worst for they cannot back out on a lifetime of being wrong, deadly and stupidly wrong.
I no longer think of leftists as misguided, I think of them as both stupid and evil.
This is not exactly the same thing as you’re talking about, but related. I was watching a video w/my almost-11 year old Granddaughter about a family that were bakers. They were making a cake commemorating “Sesame Street” on the anniversary of the show. They had puppets of some of the characters. One of them was “Cookie Monster”. Anyway, we were talking about the Cookie Monster, and how the so-called “Veggie Monster” was now taking his place. This was done, I think, about a year ago. However, this family was a big fan of the Cookie Monster.
My Granddaughter, out of the blue, started going off on Michele Obama! (laugh)She claims that Mrs. Obama caused the CM to be replaced by VM, and she was furious as she was talking about it! She said many of the kids she knew would NOT watch “Sesame Street” anymore, because they were mad at the people who made the show for taking off Cookie M., and replacing him with Veggie Monster!
But get this: They were even more angry with the First Lady, thinking that she was the one that caused C. Monster to be taken off! That was a surprise! A lot of my Grandkids’ friends were not fans anymore of the show, (or Mrs. Obama) for that! I guess it was due to this healthy eating initiative that brought that about, and lots of young kids were mad! I laughed to myself about it, thinking that if even many young kids are mad; they (The Obamas) are in double-trouble with these young citizens!
It is an abiding source of fascination to me to see the political dividing line that runs right through families.
I’m sure you have wondered, as have I, about how this happens.
My extended family doesn’t seem to have that dividing line, so I can speculate only from a distance about others.
(Everyone that I know about in my family is pretty damn conservative except me. I’m the black sheep in more than one way; a former anarcho-libertarian, now a conservo-libertarian.)
It sounds as if maybe there's some real economics being taught there, and not just rent-seeking worship of the State.
