  •  disillusionment and apathy: Obama's legacy (1+ / 0-)

    You personally, Mr. President, have done more to make me apathetic about politics than any single person

    Millions of Americans will be saying the same thing.  This will probably be Obama's most significant and lasting legacy -- turning off lots of people, especially the Millennial Generation, from politics for a very long time.

    Getting your hopes up and then crushed is a very painful thing, and most people won't be interested in repeating the experience with any other politician.

      I just cannot believe how much he duped all of us. From just about every campaign promise, he has reneneged. Except for the war.  What a miserable human being he is to crap on all of us after we all worked so hard to put him in office. I was wondering today if Michelle accepts what he does or was she duped too? And one day the kids are going to be reading history or something and wonder what their dad was really all about.
      The only thing that I can really except if he isn't the biggest walking creep, is that someone else is really in charge of not only this country, but him. He has to do it or he will be offed?
      I watched the Obama Deception on utube and wondered how much was CT. What with the Bildenburg group and all.
      After seeing that and reading spoon's diary today, I have lost all hope. Oh and Democracy Now's podcast yesterday about Copenhagen and how the US is pressuring everyone to not do anything.
      Just don't understand what the end game is. If the states die off because of no taxes, jobs ect, how will they survive?
      Seriously, why are they doing this. And I think the meltdown last year was just to wipe out everyones pensions. Doesn't make sense that the Market is going up now.
      Those taxes sure would go along way to provide health care.  

      Would the current HCR Bill have helped Obama's mom on her death bed? Wasn't that his passion for HCR?

          I asked a question. I have a right to ask a question. You have a right to disagree with me but not in this manner. Fake ass patriot? What does that have to do with anything?
