Greg Smith, 46 from New York, has supported Barack Obama since the now-president announced his bid for the White House in 2007. But three years later the diehard Obamaniac has a sober admission: he’s losing hope.

In 2007, the New York Post featured Smith’s story — he was a converted Clinton supporter that left his work as a hotel doorman to campaign for Obama. Obama read the story and asked Smith to introduce him at a campaign event and also tell his story. He did, began campaigning for Obama full-time, and even was present backstage during the Democratic National Convention speech in Denver.

Obama won the election. Life was great — hope and change were alive. But now, reality has set in, and Smith — back at his old job – wonders aloud to the Post what happened:



Two years later, I’m living a more sober reality.

My life is not better. I‘m a college graduate and I still can’t get a good job.

I’m back working as a doorman at a Manhattan hotel earning peanuts because my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and I need the health insurance again.

I share the same sentiments of Velma Hart, the woman who confronted Obama at a town hall last week, saying she was tired of defending him. The idea of leaving New York is even on the table.

Obama has let professional politicians take over the White House — and our dream of change.

I know it’s childish to expect solutions to happen overnight. Obama inherited a big old mess, and I don’t expect him to have everything figured out after 18 months.

But we’re only human and we want to see some visible change.

I’m trying to keep up my hope — but I’m afraid that instead of being that guy who knocked on doors in Denver, I’m now the person who needs convincing.

The reason people are losing hope is quite simple: Liberals & progressives were hoping to have a REAL progressive in the White House in charge of things for ONCE!

But no. The old saying that Richard Nixon was the last liberal President of the United States holds true even until today!

Ever since Ronald Reagan, every prominent Democrat politician has tried to somehow concede to the idea that the Supply Side Neoliberal Economic theoreticals embraced by Reagan were actually a GOOD thing.

Barack Obama is no different.

President Obama is just another post-Reagan Democrat whose actions resemble those of a moderate or even a conservative politician.

Just look at his health care plan: Normally slammed by conservative political opposition as “socialism,” the Obama health care plan is just the Mitt Romney plan, which was vetted by the Heritage Foundation.

There’s really NOTHING progressive about the health care plan.

Look at gay rights: NOTHING has been done on that issue.

Look at the war: Iraq is not even done. Afghanistan has been ESCALATED. We’re bombing Pakistan. We’re supporting terrorist opposition in Iran through the CIA called Jundullah.

Obama is MORE pro-war in ACTION than George W. Bush !



Man O Man ... :laughing:

The point is, he IS a progressive. Proof that the progressive policies do nothing except destroy everything they seek to fix.

Explain every slum and inner city...
They are all run by progressives, democrats and liberals and thier programs. That's why the poor stay there. They've been doing it for over 100 years in some places, no matter what party has been living in the WH.

Yet, the slums never get better and in some cases get worse and are spilling out into the surrounding areas.

On top of it the progs seek to keep everything in those areas staus quo so they can skim off the programs as a way of life at the expense of the people they are supposedly trying to help.

In light of those facts, what makes you think progressive policies are anything but a waste of time, money, energy, and lives?

You guys talk a good game but all you manage to do is eff up a wet dream.

You can verify it a few miles from where you live. Go in any direction, to a large city.
Serious ... you don't see what's wrong this statement ...
