For Those who want to say I'm Sorry

If you have buyer's remorse, feel duped, or are just plain embarrassed that you bought into the hype that was Hopenchange, you now have a place to express your remorse:

The purpose of this website is to tell America that former Obama supporters are no longer proud of their decision. We want everyone to contribute a story of themselves or about someone they know that tells America that they are sorry they voted for Obama.

If You Didn't Vote for Obama

You can still sign the form and tell us about a friend or coworker that is now ashamed of how they voted.

Everyone knows someone that is avoiding telling people how they voted. You have probably seen people take off their Obama stickers. You might have noticed they no longer talk about politics

We want to hear those stories.

Here are a few apologies and stories:

I voted for Obama in California. I encouraged all my friends and neighbors to do the same. Why? Well, I have an extended African American family by marriage, and I thought it would be empowering for my wonderful nephews to see a black President. I know...it's not a great method for voting. Also, I was beguiled by the "hope and change" rhetoric. I am a two-time Ross Perot voter, and I really REALLY wanted to find that post-partisan, post-racial American era.

However, six short months later, it is clear that the contents of the Obama presidential box do not match what was on the two-year Obama campaign label.

I have been betrayed. And I won't vote for him again.

One of my son's teachers voted for Obama, and had been vocal in his support of Obama prior to the election. When my son saw him at the start of the new school year, the teacher admitted to having made "a big mistake in judgement" and regrets his previous thinking. He's even considering formally changing parties.
I'm not sorry I didn't vote for Barry O but my brother is. He said he just couldn't see Sarah Palin as VP so he voted for Barry O instead. Now he's really mad and as a stockbroker, he's really scared. Boy is he stupid.

If you know stories of people who voted for Obama and are now sorry they did, head on over to I am Sorry I Voted for Obama and tell them your story.

Does someone want to go on there and issue an apology for voting for him on behalf of California?

"California's unemployment rate climbed to 11.9 percent in July, the highest number in modern record-keeping.

That's an increase from 11.6 percent in June and considerably higher than the jobless rate of 7.3 percent a year ago."

JustRuss:

I think the site is a crap idea. It will only draw a few real reformed souls. And countless anecdotes about friends.

It will become a new battleground for the idiots on both sides, at least maybe they will stay over there instead of here. I don't like the right wing zealots or the left wing cookoos who back the party no matter what.

That being said, I know a guy who took his obama bumper sticker off and doesn't talk politics anymore. He tried desperately to defend everything P.BO did and said until finally his will was broken and he gave up hope.

Dave:

We all make mistakes; we have all done things that, in retrospect, we wish we would not have done, or at least done differently. That being said, this website angers me. These people expect us to believe that they are rational, thinking, otherwise intelligent human beings who were beguiled and mislead into voting into the most powerful office in this country a man (whom even the most cursory observation revealed to have no leadership experience, much less ability) and whose actions will have far reaching consequences to not just us, but to our children and our children's children. I visited that site and my only thought upon leaving it was that these idiots should have their voting rights taken away from them. It is a tragedy of epic proportions, and (for me at least), sorry just dont feed the bulldog.

I'm sorry I voted for John McCain. I was told that if I voted for McCain that we would be mired in Iraq and Afghanistan and we'd have ware never ending. I was told that GITMO would not be closed. I was told that unemployment would skyrocket and the economy would tank and recovery would take years if ever.

So, not listening to my "betters," I voted for Senator McCain. Alas, all the above has come true...

The OMB has just revised the 10 year deficit projection as of this afternoon, announced quietly on a Friday afternoon in the middle of August, when nobody's watching. It's now $9 Trillion

So they think. Think about this: That's $40,000 for every man, woman and child in America. It's more like $80,000 for every taxpayer, assuming that only half of us file returns. God knows what the number is if you only count those who actually PAY taxes.

And they did this all in 7 months.

Absolutely astounding.

I work with two women who have children without health insurance, and they absoluetely refuse to admit they made a mistake. And you know why? Because it is people like them, who have uninsured children, feel that any public plan that would give kids without insurance soemthing is better than nothing. SO they don't mind screwing the rest of us if it means that their uninsured kids will get something. it is sad and it is sick. They refuse to believe that we can help their kids get soemthign without detroying the shole system. they see this public system with "free" healthcare for all is the quickest,e asiest way for their kids in their twenties to get something.

Bruce Henry:

My wife has worked for several dentists over the years. Makes a pretty good hourly rate, but NONE of them ever offered her health insurance, or indeed any benefits at all besides a discounted price for teeth cleaning.

But those dentists all ran fabulously successful practices. One guy worked 3 1/2 days a week and played golf the rest of the time, lived in a $1M home, took European vacations every year, etc. His employees? $17.50/hr, no benefits.

mag:

#16 You are so right. It is the single women especially the ones with children, or who don't have jobs that want any kind of health insurance.

#19 Why didn't your wife look for other employment that offer more in the line of benefits. Was she forced to work at these various offices.

PS My dentist works over 8 hours a day and 6 days a week.

Bruce Henry:

Mag:

My wife was covered under my plan, and like I say, it's a pretty good hourly rate. However, there were several single moms working at these practices (the vast majority of dental office employees are women) and they weren't offered health insurance either.

I'm not saying dentists necessarily SHOULD offer health insurance to their employees. I just thought it was interesting that Dr Brad chose to phrase it that way. "I work with two women..." Instead of "I employ two women who I choose not to help cover."

Many dentists indeed work six days a week. So freaking what? So do I.

In this country, if you can't get insurance through your employer, for all practical purposes, you can't get it at all. Not on what a hygienist or an office worker makes.

Jeff Blogworthy:

Bruce Henry,

Your points are valid. That does not mean Obamacare is the solution to the problem. We can fix this while still honoring freedom. We don't need a complete Socialist takeover of the country. In such a case 'the cure' is far worse than the disease.

BH,
So do you offer insurance because you work
6 days a week?
Plus the dentist owe the employee nothing but the
wage they worked for. Health care or health insurance is not an inherent right.
As to the single mothers, the dentists neither
made them single nor mothers, and owe them nothing for their personal situation in life.
The world was here before any of us, it owes us nothing.

hcddbz:

The reason so many are now second guessing their vote is because reality has trumped rhetoric.

During eight years of Bush there was a constant mantra of the worst Economy since the great depression. Unemployment rates were low for the last eight years so the press convinced many Americans that though they maybe good their neighbors were suffering.

However now with record highs in unemployment people are seeing that under BHO they have to be concerned about themselves and there own families, so life under Bush-Hitler was not so bad.

We heard how can we spend money on two wars and whatever domestics program. Now we are still fighting two wars (though you are hard pressed to hear the casualty numbers) and are engaged in record spending on everything expect defense.

So now the No Blood For Oil folks realize nothing has changed but unlike Bush they get no press.

So let me get this straight -

"Because it is people like them, who have uninsured children, feel that any public plan that would give kids without insurance soemthing is better than nothing."

WTF is S-CHIP for again?

Maggie, come on, now.... (Below threshold)
Bruce Henry:

Maggie, come on, now.

No, I don't "offer insurance." I'm not an employer, I'm an employee. I meant my wife is covered under the family plan my employer provides. I work 5 days at that job, then a night shift and a day shift at a friend's restaurant to afford the little extras for my kids.

I agree that "the world owes us nothing", that the dentist doesn't have to give his employees insurance (although some do, and get great employees thereby), and that he neither made them single nor made them mothers.

I was simply remarking that I found it interesting that Dr Brad said "I work with two women who have children with no health insurance" rather than the more accurate "I employ two women for whom I choose not to provide health insurance."

The first version makes it sound like these women are somehow at fault for not being able to afford insurance on what Dr Brad pays them. The second version puts the onus on him, not them. Do you suppose THAT'S the reason he stated it that way?

Mr Blogworthy:Than... (Below threshold)
Bruce Henry:

Mr Blogworthy:

Thank you for a reasonable response. Perhaps "Obamacare" is not the solution. But we have been trying to fix healthcare in the US since 1946. It has gotten steadily worse.

Since the last time the GOP and Big Insurance shot down reform, in 1993, premiums, deductibles, and co-pays have tripled and quadrupled. And now Congressional Republicans are saying NO to single-payer, NO to a public option, NO to co-ops, NO to any and every idea put forth. They are not interested in solutions, simply in protecting their corporate sponsors.

If we have to wait another 16 years, my premiums will be the equivalent of $2,000/mo., my co-pays will be $200, and my deductible will be $20,000.

No, come to think of it, I'll be on that eeevil Socialist program "Medicare" by then. Thank God.

No sarcasm intended, Mr Blogworthy, but avoid phrases like "total Socialist takeover of our country" if you want to have a reasonable debate. It sounds paranoid and kinda Palinesque. Just a suggestion.

hyperbolist:

maggie, for what reason do you assert that people do not have a right to healthcare? That the Constitution does not guarantee every citizen healthcare is not reason to say that every person is thereby not entitled to it. Human rights are a hell of a lot more complicated than the Founding Fathers could have possibly understood over 200 years ago. If you base your opinion on something other than the Constitution--selfishness, or a presumably Lockean conception of human rights--then good. Note, however, that people who are paid to write about human rights, by universities or governments or think tanks, mostly do not share your view.

Bruce Henry:

Hyper, some people's idea of "conservatism" is really "social darwinism." You know, survival of the fittest and all that. Are there no workhouses?

In other words, "I got mine, so screw you, motherf***ers!"

BH, I don't assume ... (Below threshold)

BH,
I don't assume to know what anyone thinks,
especially in a post. Which is why I formed mine
to you as a question.
As to the single mothers, they could do such as you and hold down two jobs. There's been plenty of single mothers who have done this. My oldest step daughter did it, and is now financially successful. And the onus is not on the doctor, it's not his responsibility to manage the personal life of other individuals whether they work for him or with him.

Hyper, Be ware of ju... (Below threshold)

Hyper,
Be ware of judging that which you do not know.
You don't know anything about me personally, other than the few posts I've made on Wizbang.

Inherent rights and entitlements are not of the same value or equivalent.
Your sneer about what the Founding Fathers
created out of originality is just that a sneer.
They were far and above far beyond their time
in the development of our Bill Of Rights, and
Constitution.
Which may be why this country is so generous in her works of charity on the private level.
It's a shame that people have to be paid to write about human rights, instead of standing up and doing it own their own dime.
How much to you figure they're paid per word?

A word of advise, human rights are about people, individuals,not about governments,think tanks, or universities, who are all paid for their words or services. I've yet to see how they've influenced places such as Darfur.

Bruce Henry:

I don't see how, Miss Maggie.

Your pal marc calls everyone who disagrees with him an "asswipe." I don't hear a peep out of you. Michael calls me a "moronic lib." Does he get scolded, or warned of "consequences?" I've been called every name in the book on these boards, but I don't take offense. I know words get heated when people discuss politics.

The only time I ever lost it here is when that one guy kept telling me "SCREW YOU" over and over again. Again I was the one who was told to watch what I said, even though it went on for weeks.

So, a little snark about social darwinism and workhouses? Is that "going too far?" Well, you're the editor, but I don't see it.

BH, It doesn't matte... (Below threshold)

BH,
It doesn't matter about your tit for tat, he did this so I did that. Your privilege of posting
here is not an inherent or non-inherent right.
As to what others post, you are not privy to what goes on behind the scenes.

Bruce Henry:

Like I said, Miss Maggie, you're the editor. I'll try to keep it civil.
