Wow. Perhaps the kool aid is wearing off for some who voted for hope and change. Evidently hope-n-change isn’t cutting through middle class angst. A questioner at a CNBC Townhall asked President Obama a very pointed question (click image to watch).
"…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.
Jim Geraghty suspects, and I agree, that she is as tired of the “we’re moving in the right direction” rhetoric as we are. Jim Hoft wonders how she snuck past the Obama town hall stagers, remember the party crashers Jim?
