‘I’m Exhausted of Defending You’
September 20, 2010 3:58 P.M.
By Daniel Foster

One of the more memorable moments from the Obama CNBC town hall came when an African-American woman — a military veteran and mother of two — told the president she was “exhausted of defending” his administration:

“I’m one of your middle-class Americans, and quite frankly I’m exhausted. I’m exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for, and deeply disappointed with where we are right now. I had 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, and I thought that — while it wouldn’t be in great measure — I would feel it in some small measure.”

The woman than talks about the impact of the recession on her family, her worry about being able to pay her two daughters’ tuition, and her fear that her family may be heading back to their “hot dogs and beans days.”

>>> Gee, I haven't changed my name in the 4 years I've been here. So I wonder, how many others can claim the same?

I don't know, why not post a new thread and ask? But what is pretty clear is that libs violate the TOS on a nearly daily basis...and as you pointed out, they're still here.

>>> No one retreated.

And yet, they're MIA. So loud and so vicious when Bush was in office...and so proud, like little NBC peacocks, when Obama was elected, happy to lord it over conservatives...but suddenly, after only a year and a half, a very telling silence. Right...no one retreated. LOL!

>>> Just are someplace where we are very welcome.

MSNBC? Huffington Post? Daily Kos? The Obama administration?

>>> Everyone, Republican, Democrat, Independent is treated with R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

It's a shame they couldn't act that way here.

I remember a board I used to post on a few years ago, for a left wing site, but it was supposedly for everyone to have open debate. I thought it would be a good place to

"Resist, we much. We must, and we much. About that, be committed."

Everyone knows how partisan this place is...but I don't expect honesty or objectivity from the left...especially when they're the ones benefiting. Still...soldier on!

I see nothing has changed. Life's too short to be spent surrounded by such nastiness.

I know, I shouldn't throw the red meat over the wall.

Obama's presidency is a miracle of mass promotion.
