Do you think that the 52% majority that voted in this president was hoping for this kind of change?
Did people really want a takover of the car companies? The bailout of the banks? A stimulus package that has shown absolutely zero results? A socialized medical industry? Bowing to foreign leaders? Apologizing for America? Leading the UN security council while being the president of a sovereign nation, how many masters can you serve? Really how is that hope and change working out for you?
I voted for Obama only because the alternate choice was a slavering imbecile who can't even keep track of how many homes he owns. Had there been a bowl of green jello available for the position, then I would have voted for it. The jello wouldn't have burdened this country for the next ten generations under crushing debt and otherwise sacrificed our future by greenlighting billions in free money to AIG et al.
I hope that this was not the change that they were expecting. Being from Chicago, I was very aware of Obama's Leftist/Progressive agenda, while many didn't. I have nothing against that, if that is what a person trully believes. But my biggest problem with Obama now is the out of control spending.
I doubt that the 52% in question realized that our dollar was going to end up worth only "change," thanks in part to Washington's misguided bailouts and wanton spending sprees.
Spending that was initiated by the past president has expanded under this one, showing an increased spending "change" that many did not expect.

When you write are you secretly hoping to change the world? Or a least a small portion of it?Writers tend to see the world in a different light, I'm just wondering how many would hope to change the world with their words, if they could.

After the announcements about tax changes as of 1/1/13, anyone wish they'd voted differently?It's amazing how candidates say what the people want to hear. I'm curious to know the statistics on how many people now wish they'd voted differently.
