These ‘I regret my 2008 vote’ pieces are going to be excruciating…
…entertainingly common, but excruciating. Anyway, my takeaway from the Jill Dorson piece (via Hot Air Headlines) in which she regrets her Obama vote:
- Not to be unkind, but I really don’t care if you’re just sorry for you, not me. I have to live with the consequences of your vote, too. As does my family. And the country, for that matter.
- You admit that your first impression of George W Bush was incorrect. You admit that your first impression of Barack Obama was incorrect. You admit that your first impression of what an Obama administration would entail is incorrect. And then you spend an amazing amount of precious apology time revisiting your unfavorable first impression of THAT WOMAN. Have you considered following the trend line, there?
- While we’re on the subject: you are aware that THAT WOMAN made many of the same objections about Obama’s experience and future plans, yes? I mean, really: there was no reason for anybody to be surprised at what happened.
- I’d like to quote your closing:
Like many others, my view is narrow. I vote for the candidate I think will be best for me. I often define myself as a fiscal conservative and a social liberal. But above all, I want to feel safe and I don’t want to feel that I am being ripped off. I want a president who inspires me and cares about my contribution to the fabric of the country. I want a president with experience and savvy, a Commander in Chief who puts our country and its citizens first.
I only hope the Republicans can find him the next time around.
If your outrage isn’t enough to make you actively want to work to find that supposedly better candidate, by all means: stay with the Democratic party. You’d just get in our way anyway.
