An interesting turn of events at a Town Hall filled with pre-screened people. Note how Obama, misreading the woman entirely, starts to laugh at her comments. It then becomes very clear this woman, while still deeply respectful, clearly feels deeply betrayed. This is what this man has done to his own supporters. It’s heartbreaking, and it’s happening to everyone.

VIDEO: Town Hall Questioner To Obama: “I’m Exhausted Of Defending You”

“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,” a woman told President Obama at a town hall.

“My husband and I have joked for years that we thought we were well beyond the hot dogs and beans era of our lives, but, quite frankly, it’s starting to knock on our door and ring true that that might be where we’re headed again, and, quite frankly, Mr. President, I need you to answer this honestly. Is this my new reality?,” she added.

    I can relate to the “exhausted” remark. I was exhausted defending George W. Bush, because his own defenses of his record were inadequate. Not to say I didn’t criticize him at all, but it was like what I hear Democrats complain about now: The opposition has gotten control of the narrative. It was frustrating as hell sometimes.

    In any case, I knew that to some extent this day would come. Obama over-promised on what he could accomplish, and his supporters are coming to realize that he is not God. It’s a downer. I remember saying before the 2008 election that it would be far better for Obama’s supporters for McCain to win, because even though they would be disappointed at the outcome, they would not have to go through the disillusionment of realizing that Obama is not the man he had led them to believe he is.

    To get to her question, yes, I think we are looking at a “beans and franks” future, largely because we believed, and continue to believe, that we can get something for nothing, and that our society’s wealth has tempted us to believe that we can gain economic security by assuming that a person’s wealth is not really theirs, but is “ours”. One of the ironies of our era is that some of the richest among us are the strongest supporters of this idea. The best explanation I’ve seen so far for why we see this expands on the idea, and gives a bigger picture. It’s in an article called, “Progressives Against Progress,” by Fred Siegel.

    Well, lady, we tried to tell you. If you had listened to us, we wouldn’t be in this trouble.

    But, welcome to the Conservative philosophy.

    It would be interesting to find that woman who thought that Obummer would pay for her gasoline, mortgage, groceries, etc. to see what she thinks now.

    Obama is forcing us to live beyond our means
    His “stimulus” pays election debts behind the scenes
    The man’s a crook
    He needs the hook
    Before we ALL end up eating just hot dogs and beans!
