Just curious as to how many of those who supported Obama in the past feel about this administration now.  Do these recent revelations matter to you?

I'm surprised it's still hard for a person to hear that people who voted for Obama not once but twice still so strongly support him.  I don't know why anyone would ask the question in the OP and then still stomp her feet like a little baby and pretend anyone answered differently.  It will be a long three and a half years for them.  Oh, well.  ......Not my problem!

I get such a chuckle  outof watching the die hard left using Bush to distract from Obama's scandals.  But some on the left are starting to come around to the truth that Obama is worse than Bush.

The tide is turning....people are starting to see how dangerous Obama truly is.

I trust the Obama administration not to get us into 2 frivolous wars in places we don't need to defend at the cost of over 6,000 American lives and at a cost which ~ if we could pay for these 2 wars ~ would bankrupt the United States.

I assume those are Bush references...but I trust you're aware that Obama called Afghanistan "the good war" and actually escalated the US effort.  There's also no evidence that Obama, had he been in the US Senate, would have voted against the war.  In fact, his record indicates otherwise.

I hope you're equally aware that most of the Democrats that comprise the "administration...Kerry, Hillary, etc...as well as most Democrats in the leadership voted enthusiastically to support the war, even pushing Clinton to take military action against Iraq's WMDs before Bush was ever elected.

I trust Obama not to sit like a pansy reading My Pet Goat while terrorist attack and kill innocent Americans.

You've heard about the terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi where our Ambassador and three other Americans were killed?  The attack that was preceded by months of intelligence and prior attacks?  The attack that occurred when our Ambassador was sent to an indefensible facility with no security on 9/11?  Obama was told about the attack as it was unfolding.  His reaction?  Absolutely nothing.  You want to point the finger at Bush for not springing into action for 7 minutes?  The attack in Benghazi went on for nearly 8 hours and Obama never called to even ask about the fate of Ambassador Stevens.  Obama never asked about availlable assets and Obama never ordered any action to be taken or inquired about plans to rescue the Americans.  Obama simply disappeared.  To this day, we don't know where Obama was during that attack or what he was doing.  But thankfully, he was defending the US by campaigning in Vegas the next day.

I trust Obama not to hire Dick Cheney.

But you trust Obama to hire an incompetent fool like Biden?  And to make Hillary Secretary of State...the same woman who denied security to Benghazi and sent Ambassador Stevens to an indefensible consulate on 9/11 after MONTHS of warnings of terrorist activity?

I trust Obama not to deregulate Wall Street, give irresponsible tax cuts to the wealthy and leave homeowners in the lurch when the bottom fell out of the housing market.

But Obama has given a pass to Wall Street and extended the Bush tax cuts.  He's spent BILLIONS and BILLIONS on failed companies and has done nothing to help homeowners.  Btw, it was the Democrat Congress who was in charge when the bottom fell out of the housing market...and the Obama administration who has been in charge while the economy has languished for the past 5+ years and done nothing to turn the country around.

 

My only disappointment with the Obama administration is its failure to close Gitmo as promised.  But again, there's no hope Gitmo could be closed in Obama's second term because that's what happens when a President is rendered a lame duck.

If Gitmo is Obama's only failure, then you've set a very, very low bar for Obama.  In fact, I can't think of a single Obama "success" except for Obamacare that more than half the country wants repealed.  I think Obama's legacy will be one of scandals and an erosion of civil liberties rather than any percieved "success."

I try to keep an open mind about things politically, but I'll admit that I'm losing my patience with this administration. Every president and government has secrets, but this one keeps managing to leak their secrets. That, more than anything, makes me nuts. At least look like a president please!
