‘Exhausted Middle Class American’ Asks Obama If He’s Really Giving His Voters The Change They Believed In

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Bolitics, News

President Obama was at the center of a serious grill session Monday at a Town Hall meeting in Washington. Obama took the hot seat as supporters informed Obama about their growing disappointment in him and his administration.

One “exhausted” supporter told Obama that she feels her family is swiftly approaching the “hot dog and beans era.” The woman, Velma Hart, a Black women, veteran of the Army Reserve, wife and mother of two kids in private school, spoke very sternly to President Obama. Hart stated:

I’m one of your middle-class Americans. And, quite frankly, I’m exhausted. I’m exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for, and deeply disappointed with where we are right now.

I’ve been told that I voted for a man who said he’s going to change things in a meaningful way for the middle class. I’m one of those people, and I’m waiting, sir. I’m waiting. I don’t feel it yet… 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?

The President responded by saying he understood the woman’s frustration, and listed a number of policies he has put in place that he said will help the middle class, including an expansion of student loans and new consumer protections for credit card users.

“My goal here is not to try to convince you that everything’s where it needs to be,” Obama said. “It’s not. That’s why I ran for president. But what I am saying is, is that we’re moving in the right direction.”

We feel where she’s coming from but …everyone is strapped for cash these days!

If you’re a supporter of Obama be a supporter, when sh*t gets hard don’t look at Obama as the problem.

Obama has been doing his damnedest to create the change that he campaigned about: passing healthcare, pulling the troops out of Iraq, creating jobs, and trying to fix this economy.

Do people really expect one man to fix 8 years worth of mess in a year and some change?!? GTFOH!

    This country is in debt because America decided to go on multiple wars in countries ,I bet they almost spent like 1 million a day on this war, I mean every single tax payers money is going to a war worth nothing. Obama is trying his best to stop this war but if America don’t get what they looking for in those countries the war is never ending.

  • Iyan

    I know this comment is not true, but it can take a day to create a bad habit, and can take up to a lifetime to fix it. We really need to be patient and have faith that our president will make a significant change for the better of our country.

  • Ms_Ukraine

    Change? W-H-E-N??????????????

  • Nicolai

    I don’t know how you call someone out for voicing their frustration, I agree its not all Obama’s fault. but the buck stops with the commander in chief every time. banking de-regulation began before Bush Jr took power, the american decline started long before that. If you don’t voice your position how are you going to convince the people in power to do what you need them to do ?

    • S. Smith

      I agree 100%.

  • Msvlicious

    Ummm Hellooo Ma’am Stop Living Above Ur Means And Take Your Kids Out Of Private School And Put Them In Public School, That Right There Will Save U Plenty Of Money, So You Want Have To Eat Beanie Weenies. Also Stop Blaming The President For Everything I Mean He Is Not God Nor A Miracle Worker …..When Bush Was In Office Didn’t Nobody Say Sh!t People Just Took It
    Like It Was. A Person Can Only Do So Much In A
    Certain Amount Of Time. So Back-Up Off The Man Nuts.

      Exactly! =)

    People please. Obama has not put one policy in place that encourages companies to hire people or for people to put their entrepreneur hat on and create jobs for themselves or anyone else. And even if someone did start a business will they have any customers? It’s not govt’s responsibility to create jobs but it is it’s responsibility to create an atmosphere that encourages its citizens to do so. From healthcare to the financial reform bill to taking over the student loan industry–this man’s agenda is not to prosper this country. If it was, job creation would be happening–IT SHOULD BE #1 ON HIS AGENDA!!!! You people say he’s only been in office for two years–with an overwhelming democratic congress he could have moved legislation that helped job creation and instead he wasting 14 months on healthcare. This man cares nothing for how people are suffering. He only wants government to take over more and more lives. To continue to give him the benefit of the doubt because he is black will be to our detriment.

    • Kim

      Exactly how many #1 agendas do you think this man looks @ every day. Yes employment is extremely important, but we failed to realize that America is VERY young country in compatrison to other Nations and he took office when this we were literally onthe verge of imploding from the inside out. He inhereted one of the worse economies this country has seen in 70 years and we expect there to be harmony in 2??? Come on people if were going to speak on subjects lets be informed. How about we stop complaining, turn off Ocho Cinco and Dancing with the Stars and get involved with our for the people by the people government and then perhaps we as the people can HELP create the change we’re looking for.

  • GeorgiaBoy

    RMEs. You so right!
    The rich are going to stay rich, people! The rich are the jobs creators. Place more tax burdens on them and guess what…they will just have lay-offs. Who is benefitting at this point. No one, except maybe the government. Consumer spending will stimulate the economy, not BIGGER government. I have Million Dollar dreams and I’m now beginning to make them a reality, only to see that when they become realty, I will be forced to give the government atleast 40% of my earnings (blood, sweat, and tears earnings, btw). There are no incentives on taking risks, anymore! The country was built by people taking risks. Recognize, the risk takers are now the owners of the big and small businesses that hire each of us. THINK, people!!! Its deeper than color!

    WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! Obama is no different from any president that came before him. They are all puppets and their financial backers are the puppeteers. By the way America has been in debt with the federal reserve for DECADES!!!! Most people don’t even know that the federal reserve is a PRIVATELY OWNED organization, there is nothing federal about it Do some research please people!!! All they did was put a black face in front of us and we completely fell for it. Half of the black people I asked why they voted for Obama couldn’t name one of his policies, all they know is he’s black.

    • RMEs

      People don’t care that the gov’t is in debt when they have jobs!!! People do care that the gov’t is spending money when they have none in their pockets (or bank accounts). If jobs were being had, nobody would care what Obama is spending.

    Democrat, Republican, whateva. We Need To Wake Up! Its not about color.

    The rich are going to stay rich, people! The rich are the jobs creators. Place more tax burdens on them and guess what…they will just have lay-offs. Who is benefitting at this point. No one, except maybe the government. Consumer spending will stimulate the economy, not BIGGER government (President Obama’s entire seems to be for BIG government). This is where I disagree with him at. I have Million Dollar dreams and I’m now beginning to make them a reality, only to see that when they become realty, I will be forced to give the government atleast 40% of my earnings (blood, sweat, and tears earnings, btw).

  • YO MOMMA

    excuse after excuse as to why our president has not done ANYTHING that he said he has. 8 trillion dollars. F HIM and you aholes following.

  • domitian

    I didn’t vote for him and I don’t vote at all. This is not a democracy. The commenter who mentioned the federal reserve is correct. The laws and government really don’t matter when a private central bank has the power to print money. Money printing has made everyone’s lives a hoax, an illusion. Remember, in the beginning, the money printer has only his pretty pieces of paper. He gets you to pledge your goods (actual wealth)in excahnge for his worthless paper. It works for awhile. Until it doesn’t. And then it’s terminal.

    • Starr B*tch

      OMG! There are educated ppl out there! That’s the only hope I need, not from a scheming businessman in a suite trying to sell this democracy BULLSH*T!

      F*CK our GOVERNMENT!

    @ CUtieReppinNY

    Thats what happens when the psychology of a people are broken!! We don’t realize that along with fighting for civil rights including the right to vote, we also fought for a right to educate ourselves on the very same government that oppressed us. Alot of us now just follow the hype. Its always harder to go against the grain and to have your own views. It’s sad!!

  • Marmar

    President Obama only been in the office for over a year and people expect the economy to turn around that quickly. Nobody wasn’t protesting like the tea party complainers when Bush was ruining the economy, foreign affairs, education, etc. After reading some of the comments it’s obvious the education system let some of you down. Times are hard but I still support President Obama. Would you rather have that idiot Sarah Palin and the racist McCain running the country. If you don’t think President Obama support black people imagine how the Republicans would treat you.

    • Ms Bossi3

      God bless you because as much sense as your making right now, its falling upon deaf ears or at least ears with low comprehension skills.

    • Umeant2saythat

      YOU’RE SOOOO RIGHT!!!!!

  • CUtieReppinNY

    @ The know

    You said it better than I ever could. Look at the responses… I must be a Republican because I speak the truth, which most of these ignorant people know and care to know nothing about. I am not a republican, nor have I ever been. I’m sorry your parents didn’t teach you how to formulate your own opinion and educate yourself, but mine did. I’m not going to blindly follow someone just because we share skin color.
