'Exhausted’ Supporters Confront Obama in Town Hall. 'Con Artist' in Chief Responds...

Oh he got her again! She fell for the charming smile from the stuttering bullshitter! How did these people become so stupid?

“We are still the country that billions of people look to and aspire to, and I want everyone to always remember that,” President Obama told a Washington, D.C., town hall audience this morning. The president’s positive words about the current state of America, however, may have fallen on some deaf ears this morning as a number of former Obama supporters questioned the direction in which he’s steered the country since taking office.

During a one-hour televised town hall dubbed “Investing in America” on CNBC, Obama fielded a number of questions from concerned Americans, a few of them seemingly rethinking their 2008 support of his candidacy.

The first question put to the president was from an African-American woman who identified herself as a chief financial officer, a mother, a military veteran and a middle-class American. “I’m exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for,” she said. “I’ve been told that I voted for a man who was going to change things in a meaningful way for the middle class, and I’m waiting, sir, I’m waiting. I still don’t feel it yet. And I thought that — while it wouldn’t be in great measure — I would feel it in some small measure.”

I have two children in private school, and the financial recession has taken an enormous toll on my family. My husband and I joked that we thought we were well beyond the hot dogs and beans era of our lives. And quite frankly, it’s starting to knock on our door and ring through that that might be where we’re headed. And quite frankly, Mr. President, I need you to answer honestly, is this my new reality?
