Get used to it, Mr. President

Disappointed Supporters Question Obama

It was billed as “Investing In America,” a live televised conversation between President Obama and American workers, students, business people and retirees on the state of the economy, a kind of Wall Street to Main Street reality check.

But it sounded like a therapy session for disillusioned Obama supporters.

What other kind are there?

(NYTimes — it’s an extrordinary short article. He was getting reamed on friendly turf.)

    I’m one of the disappointed ones, for sure, but at least he’s taking questions from people who aren’t hand-picked to toss softballs and shower him with praise. I was going to compare him with Bush, but we have a whole new crop of a-hole politicians who protect themselves from any and all criticism.

    So, he’s taking questions. Is he giving answers, or just hosing them down with soft soap?

  5. Californistan & others, giving credit to a politician for doing the absolute bare minimum is like giving credit to one’s neighbors for *not* running you over in a drunken stupor while you pull weeds from your driveway.

  6. Or does he care? His kids are set for life. The rest of us? Not so much. Yeah, I think it comes down to that.

    I hate to dump on this parade, but….

    She said she’s got two kids in PRIVATE school. She lives in the greater Washington, D.C. area, therefore she has access to some of the best PUBLIC school education in the country. Even in Prince Georges county, Maryland, the schools are far better than the national average. Perhaps it is time for this family to reassess its budgetary priorities, if things are as bad as she says.

    “Is this my reality?” Puhleeezzzeeeeee.
