No, this cri de coeur didn’t come from a House Democrat facing a tidal wave of voter anger, but they must feel some sympathy for this woman at Barack Obama’s CNBC townhall this morning. The CFO of a veteran’s service organization told Obama that she’s tired of defending him and his administration, and wonders where the change went. Click the image to watch:
“I’m one of your middle class Americans. And quite frankly, I’m exhausted. Exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for.”
She’s hardly alone in worrying about a return to the “hot dogs and beans” days for middle-class Americans, because many people have begun to realize that this is indeed the new reality under this administration’s economic policies. Apparently, that’s not the change for which she voted in 2008, but as many of us predicted, it’s the change Obamanomics delivers every time it has been tried. Instead of defending Obama, perhaps she should spend her time looking for alternatives in 2010.
