Yes, I support Obama.
Am I an Obamatron?
Boy, are you one prejudiced, complacent smart-pass.
And my answer is, no.
Rather, what I see is that you - and SO many others - are unnecessarily critical of him.
I am NOT an Obamatron. If he crashes and burns like the Bushes did, you bet I will be saying a lot about it. But he's not. In fact, right now I think
he's doing decent for a President with so much hate against him (he's got a lot more closeted haters than Bush, I think) who has to deal with a
whole MESS of problems in the world.
I would so love to ask "What has Obama done SPECTACULARLY WRONG?"
Take the global meltdown for example.
The plan to intentionally create a deficit and to spend more to stimulate the economy may not seem like a plan to you... but ECONOMICALLY, it is. As
in, Academics. As in, Economics. As in, why don't you read up on Keynesian theory of Aggregate Demand-and-Supply and then say something. High taxes
are bad - I feel the pinch too - but what else can be done?
Besides, he didn't create it, unlike George Bush, who signed into effect a law that prevents transparency of large companies like AIG.
If you cannot suggest an alternative, then... keep quiet (putting it nicely).
I am unhappy with the taxes, and I vent my frustrations on the board, but ultimately I do not go so far as to being "an Obamatron".
Which is to imply, what, i'm some sort of robot mind-controlled by Obama?
During the election, I was a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton. Not Obama. In fact, I hoped he didn't take office. Now that he did... I have to
support him. Because I am American.
If John McCain took office, I would have supported him too.
For many of the other issues, I would like you to suggest alternatives that could please BOTH SIDES of those issues. Energy crisis. H1N1. If you can
do that, I'll nominate you for President myself.
Again, I am not an Obamatron.
But I think he needs support, as do ALL Presidents. I supported Bush at first. And then, 8 years into his presidency, he makes such a mess.
5 months? No mess so far. It's all good. If he starts screwing up majorly next yr or the yr after, that's it. Boom. I'm gone.
But, right now all I can do is support him. Support AMERICA.
His cabinet is very skilled too.
Steven Chu, Nobel Prize winner? Robert Gates, skilled security tactician? Janet Napolitano, one of the top Governors before she took over Homeland
Security? Hilda Solis, who understands everything minority labor workers go through?
Granted, Tim Geitner needs to do some work. As does Hillary Clinton, my former pick for President, who seems like such a shadow of Condoleeza Rice.
Kathleen Sebelius has been dreadful so far. I have not seen healthcare measures in place, especially not the ones Obama proposed back in his
But does that make me hate Obama? No. I see YOU are. You are finding him so disgusting you are calling everyone who doesn't "Obama-trons". I'll
give him 18 months before I make my judgment. Not five. Not in the wake of AIG. Of H1N1 GLOBAL PANDEMIC. Not in the wake of North Korea's hostage
situation of two of OUR VERY OWN AMERICANS.
Where's your sense of patriotism?
Or are you all Republicans who have been listening a little too much to Rush Limbaugh?
Does that make you "Limbaughtrons?" Maybe "McCaintrons?"
I have not been receiving radio signals in my head. Maybe you have. We all know Rush Limbaugh is part of a radio station.
