Lately, one of the most frequent statements I hear is "I vated for Obama and I am so sorry I did."

How many people here feel this way and why. Please participate in poll.

Well, I am sorry that this OP topic comes up every week. But no, I am not sorry I voted for Obama. I mean, who else was anyone going to vote for?

I'd be surprised if any of the moonbats posting here would actually admit it if they were sorry.

In my family we knew better in the beginning, so since we didn't vote for him.. nothing to be sorry for.

I haven't heard of any Obama fan lately other than some on this forum and on tv...but not people i meet on a daily base...on who feel stupid that they ever have voted for him.

Friends of mine, their son voted for Obama and him and his friends feel now that his parents were right not to vote for OBama ...lesson learned at a young age.

I am disappointed that he hasn't accomplished more, but Obama on his worst day, is still way better than McCain/Palin in the WH.

I will be following this with interest, because all my friends who are leftist seem pretty grim about things, but will admit nothing. Granted, we've long ago agreed to disagree and Never mention political issues.

The one time I did.....well, it was not a pleasant situation and I worried that the person might have a stroke or something. Such bitterness & anger! I'll tell you, there's a huge philosophical and intellectual divide in this Republic.

I still support the Democrats because they provide the most stable alternative to any other political party in this nation. The Republicans are in turmoil over their direction: moderate or conservative. Plus I still do not trust that they can govern effectively because they haven't shown me anything in the way of promoting good leadership and governance within their own ranks. The Democrats are still stale with their ideas. They have not promoted good alternative ideas for entitlements; I think there are better ways to provide universal healthcare than what was passed. In fact, I have heard some good ideas from the Republican side.

However, I'll go with stability and wait for new ideas when we are more secure in our economic situation.

Sorry, I completely misread your post. I'm on Vicodin right now.

Why? What do you feel he has done that is so great, or that mccain wouldn't have done?

And you mentioned palin....so I have to ask...why is biden as VP any better than her? Biden has pretty much embarrassed himself and obama non-stop.
