What are you hearing from past Obama voters?

I'm hearing they're not voting for Obama again.... You hearing the same thing? Any stories to share?  My NYC stockbroker cousin says all his liberal stockbroker buddies LOVED Obama in 2008 and have turned totally off of him.   I have more you?  Let's try to cheer each other up :)   I think I told you all a few times that Mr. Z's doc was a liberal who voted for Obama, then heard about Obama Care and stopped arguing with Mr. Z, suddenly asking "why aren't the Republicans fighting it harder?"  I have a lot of stories of people turning off of Obama....DO YOU?  TELL US!

I don't know that many.

A dear cousin of mine is still stubbornly on the Hopey Changey bandwagon, as well as a coworker.

Living outside of the country, I don't have any stories to share; but I am very much interested in hearing such stories. I'll come back later to see the comments.

SufferDude said...

Obama has made the economic crisis worse with all of his spending programs that take capital out of the economy. Hes a bunch of bullshit. He criticized Bush for him taking America to all these wars but he did the same damn thing in Libya, and Egypt . He also buys Union support with my tax payer dollars!!! My moneys is being handed out to people who, don't work for it and who don't deserve it. Tell em to go get a job! And All of a sudden in this world its somehow racist because we do not like president obama. What has this country come to? Four years ago, Candidate Obama spoke out against using "stale tactics to scare voters." Today, his plan to "destroy Romney" includes dishonest attacks that he hopes will distract voters from his broken promises.
You have to be an idiot to support this president.

Z said...

SF...get to WORK on those folks!
Are they blaming Bush still?

ConF....I'm disappointed we haven't many comments; and hoping they're just too busy to be blogging and not actually DON'T know anybody! :-)

Z said...

SufferDude..we're racist if we don't like Obama but would vote for Alan West yesterday if we could, right? :-)

Elmers Brother said...

Saw a bumper sticker that said 'This woman wont be fooled twice' with a line through the Obama symbol

The Born Again American said...

I was rolling through the parking lot at the grocery store the other day and saw an Obama bumper sticker on a car with an eldely couple getting in... I had my phone, so I asked the gentleman if I could take there picture because I'd never seen real live Obama supporters before... I sure hope he doesn't kiss his wife with the same lips that those words came out of... You see it's still not propper to hit a cripple and I'm hoping that stands, as I push the limit every chance I get...

Lisa said...

Good One Born again. You just can't teach an old dog new tricks.
I know 2 people who are not voting for Obama again. One over the health care bill when she found out how er pemiums keep going up and she is a cncer survivor and is terrified if it comes back and she has to depend on the governmnet system and one over Obama's support of the Ground Zero Mosque and he is a die hard Columbia University Alumni liberal.
The good news is I have seen more anti-Obama stickers and I haven't been seeing any Pro-Obama stickers and I live in NY so maybe there's hope. Real Hope.

Z said...

Elbro, that's a good one!

I've seen 2 (in LA!) OMG's with "Obama Must Go" written below...terrific

Born Again, that is terrific! I wish I could have been there! NY, a Columbia prof? and a cancer survivor...very telling.
And very encouraging! thanks!

Pamela D. Hart said...

Hi Z, I haven't been blogging politically (been too frustrated). However, I do have a few cents to add to this post...well my husband does, but he doesn't blog! lol.

My husband is in the Sheet Metal Union and is surrounded by Democrats who voted for Obama. In 2008 "they" thought he walked on water.


there are a few my husband has actually changed! They will be voting for Romney!

The others, though, won't vote at.all. They are disgusted with Obama but still won't come over to the dark side ;-)

Ducky's here said...

How does government spending take Kapital out of the economy?
I'll accept a debate about the efficiency of the spending. Defense is a lousy job creator, for instance but takes Kapital out of the economy?

Please explain.

Lisa said...

Z-Pamela reminded me of one more. My neighbor who is in the Electricians Union also said Obama didn't fulfill anything he promised them so him and some other coworkers are not voting for him but they have to keep it to themselves, Isn't that telling that your union tells you who "you better" vote for?

Z said...

Hi, Pamela...I don't blame you for your frustration...

THanks to your husband for that information..and GOOD ON HIM for convincing people how awful Obama is.
"won't vote at all" is sad, but works for us, I hope.
It's definitely going to be a big part of Obama's loss, if he loses. People won't vote for Romney but they won't vote for Obama, either. A good thing.
thanks for coming by!

Lisa, I hear things like that, too...union people are afraid of speaking their minds. It's pretty nasty. The saddest part of that is I think we've lost a lot of good teachers because of the union bullying. They can't complain, they can't get money where it should be, instead of the hands of the union leaders.
Did you hear the union leaders make $500,000 a year, when the avg. teacher salary is apparently only $44K? man.
And they keep pouring money into schools when it's the parents and teachers who need to step up!
I think kids in the time of Little House on the Prairie knew more than our kids do about American history, for example.
Thank God for schools like the one I'm associated with.

Next thing you know, z will be on the warpath over CEO pay. Or the obscene amounts the head of charities and foundations make.

All a boatload more than 500 grand.

Always On Watch said...

Let's see. Offhand, I can think of three specific Obama supporters.

1. One still probably still supports Obama. "There is no stupid President," she says. She liked John McCain because of his military background, but "couldn't stand" Sarah Palin. I don't know how she feels about Romney.

2. One is furious with Obama as her family is much worse off now than before. She believed that Obama would "fix the situation."

3. One is a diehard Dem and will always vote for the Democratic Party candidate -- or stay home. However, this individual is very anti-war; and that factor may play in.

cube said...

Then why are Obama and Romney so close in the polls? Yeah, I'll believe it when I see it in November. That's the only poll that counts.

Always On Watch said...

BTW, maybe it's just too early, but I've noticed no proliferation of Obama bumper stickers here in the Virginia suburbs. On the other hand, I have noticed much fewer Romney stickers than Obama ones.

Ducky's here said...

I'm voting Green and voting for Scott Brown.

No more Democratic Leadership Council pimps and stooges.

Z said...

Ducky, good try, but I have ALWAYS complained about the overly generous CEO wages.....NOBODY deserves sixty MILLION dollars in one year...and I always say that.

I am commenting on the huge disparity between the union thug leaders and teachers.......and teachers, who we're paying to teach our kids, are too ...dare I say see it?
The ones who don't get it are DUMB.

AOW...let us know if there are any changes!

cube, I don't believe the polls.
the left's made it a humiliating experience to even say you're a Republican...they really truly have. Ridiculous, but true...with the mischaracterizations, etc..well, I don't have to go into that here, we all know it.
And that's holding people back from telling the truth.

Teresa said...

My boss thinks that the economy will be worse under Romney. And I think what the heck is he smoking?

My niece was a first time voter and she voted for Obama in 08' but isn't planning on voting for him in November.

Donna said...

By his own admission ( Barack Obama used drugs and almost certainly passed drugs to his friends. This makes it likely he has committed drug-related felonies. Even just passing drugs around in a circle of friends is a “sale of drugs” felony. Nevertheless, it’s not really important whether we have enough definitive evidence to convict Barack Obama in a court room. It is, after all, only the seriousness of the charges and not the nature of the evidence that counts.
During Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s March 1, 2012 press conference, his lead investigator presented a copy of Barack Obama’s draft registration card and explained how it was forged ( It was clear that if the draft card Obama possessed was genuine, he, Barack Hussein Obama, received THE ONLY draft card issued since 1980 that was stamped with a single digit year. Every other draft card issued before and after Barack Obama’s special one includes four digits. Obama’s draft card is stamped with “80” for the year it was issued. Any legitimate stamp would say “1980.”
Obama’s draft card looks like it was made by a high school kid learning how to photo-shop a document. All of this strongly suggests Obama may very well be a felon under several statutes of both Hawaiian and federal law.
When Obama either made or received his obviously fake draft card, that could be a felony violation of Jimmy Carter’s Proclamation 4771, Registration Under the Military Selective Service Act, which retroactively re-establishing the Selective Service registration requirement for all 18–26 year old male citizens born on or after January 1, 1960.
Failure to register for the draft – certainly indicated by possession of a forged draft card – makes a man born after December 31, 1959 liable for a maximum fine of $250,000 and a prison term of up to five years ( ).
The law also stipulates that an unregistered male is not eligible for a job in the Executive Branch. The means a forged draft card cannot be used to satisfy the requirements to be the president. It means Barack Obama may be guilty of federal felonies because he possessed and presented an identification document that is a fake. It means he may have committed more federal felonies involving fraud when he presented a forged draft card to satisfy the requirements for any federal student aid he used to attend college in America (
My goodness, there may be a felon in the White House!

Z said...

Teresa, does your boss READ? Is he plugged into all of the information or just watches msnbc, or??
Does he pay for health care?!!

Donna..WOW...a lot of that's been around for a while. If it was a Republican, you know what the media'd be doing!

Liberalmann, please read the comments. You sound silly.

Teresa said...

Z, I am pretty sure that he only watches the local news. He doesn't like politics so he doesn't pay any attention to it other than when he has to. He pays for health care but he says the high costs aren't because of Obama. For instance, he believes those false ads that Obama is running about Romney shipping jobs overseas. I tried to tell him that The Washington Post and a couple other independent sources have shown the Obama campaign's accusations to be false. Talking to him about politics is like talking to a brick wall. I'm thinking about bringing in the Washington Post article which gave the Obama campaign 3 pinocchios.

Kid said...

I don't see a lot of obama stickers. But to me that doesn't mean they won't vote for him again. Not easy for a Loser to change their spotted stripes.

We'll see.

The obama campaign most definitely looks desperate however.

Anonymous said...

We used to have a very solid way of dealing with such issues...up to 1963.

Anonymous said...

"I'm voting Green and voting for Scott Brown."

That must be as satisfying as licking your own balls.

Of course being from's normal.

Rita said...

Imp, please don't discourage Ducky from voting the Green Party. That's just one less vote for Obama. Which makes me wonder if Ducky was sad that Rosanne announced she was no longer pursuing the Green Party nomination. What could be a better statement of how brillian the Green Party is than have Rosanne running for President?

Z said...

Imp...I'm afraid to ask: 1963?

Did you see on TV how Bob Schieffer and some other leftwing thugs were discussing Limbaugh and said "He wants to take us back to Jim Crow"


Z said...

Rita, BRILLIANT and so true. Now THERE's a party we can all believe in!

People think Ducky likes Obama..he only sticks UP for Obama against ANY Conservative or Christian, but he thinks Obama's too rightwing!

Jan said...

Just yesterday, we were behind a car that had a bumper sticker that said, I'll Keep My Freedom, My Guns, and My Money, and You Keep Your Change.

That's only one of two that I remember seeing, around here, that are anti-Obama, but have seen lots of pro-Obama ones, and they are always on cars driven by middle aged white women, or college students...they always have some kind of college decal, too.

I have no idea whether or not they are current stickers, because most of them just have his logo, and most of them have OBAMA 'O8.

I had just read that most people are afraid to put any kind of bumper sticker on their vehicles, either pro or con, for fear of having them keyed when they're parked, somewhere.

One said that it happened three different times since putting an anti-Obama sticker on their car.

I don't know anyone who formerly voted for him, and not planning to, this time. But then, I don't anyone, personally, who voted for him, anyway.

At least, not any that have admitted to it.

The ones that I've read about who did, but not going to, again, mostly say that they are not voting for anyone this time.

Z said...

Jan, it's almost freaky around here because one really does NOT see Obama '12 bumper stickers...still some '08 ones here, too.

And yes, conservatives get keyed when they bumper stickers representing their opinions; it's happened in LA a LOT.

college naive.

Lisa said...

Z I forgot another thing.A little more than a month ago a big pickup truck came in font of me from the right lane(I was in the middle lane) to get into the left turning lane . I don't say things to people but I yelled to myself in my car"You Idiot!" Then when he was able to fit in the lane I saw his bumper and it said "Don't Blame me,I Voted for the American"
We weren't going fast and it was a red light anyway and he had little choice but to go in front of me. See how forgiving I am?

Z said...

Lisa, honestly....even if Obama was definitely born in America, this fits: "Don't Blame me,I Voted for the American"

Jan said...

Z, "naive" is what I always think when I see the kids with those bumper stickers, too.

I forgot to mention, that the only one of our cars that has had anything done to it, is the one with a small decal with an eagle that says Freedom Is Not Free, and one that says Viet Nam Vet. It has had a custom, tinted window visor broken, and the license plate holder twisted.

Not accidents, by any stretch of the imagination.

And then there was the flag pole that was snapped off, and the flag thrown into the driveway in the middle of the night.

It was back up as soon as we bought another pole, though, and will be up again, no matter how many times it happens.

Hatred for this country is getting more prevalent by the day.

It's like they've become emboldened by something...or someone.

Z said:

That, in itself, is beyond hilarious.

I don't even know any Obama voters. If I knowingly came across one, the glare would be enough for them to stay the hell away from me.

Z said...

Jan, they're emboldening good Americans, too...which is great.

How awful that you've had those things done...I don't believe it's coincidence, either.

USMC: I'd like to see that glare! I think I'd approve :-)

beamish said...

10% not voting at all
60% would vote against Obama if Romney wasn't to their left on most issues
30% voting for Obama enthusiastically

beamish said...

I see no credible reason to believe Romney wil get more than 18% of the popular vote.

beamish said...

I'm fairly certain Romney already has his concession speech written.
