America Suffering Election Remorse

Did we ever really buy him, America? (I didn't)

Or was he selectively thrown up by the elites behind the scenes to
fool you?


With 41% of Americans strongly disapproving President Obama's performance ( Rasmussen Poll ) it's apparent that Americans are developing a growing case of buyers remorse. The Afghanistan build up, Wall Street Bail Out versus Main Street and Single pay health reform are three issues which leave many Americans feeling betrayed, unlistened to and remorseful about Obama: Allen L Roland

Wikipedia defines Buyer's remorse as an emotional condition whereby a person feels remorse or regret after a purchase.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday, August 16, shows that 32% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of - 9. ( This is a drastic shift in sentiment over the past two months )

(Blog editor's note:

"The stage hands, gaffers and grips are hauling and hammering. The scene painters are busy. The time is approaching because the situation is not unlike where it was when
The Segway Kid was right here in his first term. They are chatting up the perpetrators and the patsies are already with the makeup people. The financial climate and signs of social unrest are the perfect soil for the needs of the moment.")

Buyer's remorse can also be the term given to the feeling a person often gets after making a large investment or emotional commitment to change ~ as millions of Americans felt in 2008. Although excited at the time of victory with the election of Obama on a platform of promised change ~ many people, including myself, are now feel Buyers Remorse in that nothing has apparently really changed.

The military Industrial complex is still in firm control and it's business as usual as far as Congress being out of touch with the people's desires and far more responsive to special interest groups.

Nowhere is this more evident than in Healthcare reform. The Obama administration has refused to consider Single pay and is now dropping broad hints that they may even back away from the Public Option.....
