I'm 62 years old, and only get $731 a month from Social Security. One of the reasons I voted for Obama is was the promise of health care. - 4 years and still no health care. He's a liar... and even worse, a doofus who doesn't have a clue how to run our country.

I am ashamed that I was drawn in by Obama's "Mr. Flash/Rockstar/Superman" persona during his campaign. When he blasted us with "he was gonna do this/he was gonna do that..." I should have taken a closer look. If I had I would have realized he had no idea how he was going to bring his promises to fruition. Just rhetoric - no substance. Now, I know better, and for the first time in my life, I am going to vote Republican.

Lisa, are you living in a cave?
Al Cordova October 08, 2012 at 08:44 AM
Lisa, you are a Republican. Who are you trying to kid?
Lisa Garner October 08, 2012 at 04:35 PM
No, Al. I am not living in a cave, but I may end up doing so if the economy does not improve. I AM a die-hard democrat, and have voted a straight D ticket since I registered at the age of 21 (Yep, that's how old you had to be back then to vote) Having an IQ of 151 and having majored in political science, I thought I was a pretty sharp cookie in a voting booth. Apparently not. Obama had me fooled. By the way - how about some political insight from you instead of throwing personal jabs at bloggers?
