My job has me interviewing Vets, today I met one (74 y/o) and we started talking about the shutdown
Vet - Obama Care must go, it is the only way to save the government.
Me - Obama Care was approved in the House and Senate, the legislative Branch of the government, signed by the President, The Executive Branch and confirmed by the SCOTUS the Judicial Branch, that is how our government works. We should try Obama Care and fix it if need be, or if it doesn't work, get rid of it. If people don't want Obama Care they need to win the next election and have it removed
Vet - Well, Obama is ruining this country
Me - What has he done to ruin the country?
Vet - He is sending it down the drain.
Me - What exactly has he done to cause the country to go down the drain?
Vet - He has other people do his dirty work.
Me - What dirty stuff have they done?
Vet - The stuff that is ruining this country and making it go down the drain.
Me - I see, well I have to help the next Veteran now, good to meet you and take care of yourself
This conversation is almost exact, I can't believe the simple non understanding people possess.
I have convinced myself there are some powerful (and not so powerful people) who do not want to see this (black) President have anything positive in his legacy. They know when future generations discuss this, they will say, since he was President when it happened (the shutdown), he is responsible.
I am not very happy with Obama, but he is the President. Does anybody remember what happened to people who questioned Bush's policies?
I wouldn't piss on any burning teabagger. Now if had some lighter fluid...........
