There will be a very interesting documentary coming out sometime this week, I saw a review of it Friday night on Hannity’s show:
It is by Citzen’s United: The Hope and the Change
This 60 minute documentary follows the daily lives of hard-working Democrats and Independents through unscripted and unrehearsed interviews. Our diverse cast encompasses a broad cross-section of America’s racial and socio-economic spectrum and comes from seven swing states that experts say will decide the 2012 presidential election. Viewers will see how their nation’s economy and society has changed over the past four years under the policies of President Obama.
I have included the information on who Citizen’s United is, and their affiliates, I believe it is important to know who is behind what is being put out in the political world for our review. What I was interested in was why these voters were changing their vote. From what little I saw on Hannity, there was a general feeling of being betrayed or duped; although two voters seemed to be one issue voters. I am guessing here, but what came across to me with these two voters was that they chose the issue with Obama they found most offensive, and leaned on the “I just can’t support that”, excuse. Sorry for being judgemental but it seems that way to me, that a voter will find the excuse reason instead of being able to cope with the real reason; they just see the man we saw four years ago. But did Obama change? Did the mask slip, or did the voter change?
I would suggest that the greatest difference between 4 years ago and today for Obama is one and only one issue, the man himself. I do not believe he has conducted himself as a President, rather it seems he believes himself to be a sovereign ruler, a “King”, that can govern by signature. The reason a voter hangs out in single issue land, IMO is because they still do not know themselves politically, lacking the self understanding of the holistic effect of politics in our everyday lives, over that one singular pet issue they have chained themselves to. To me that is still a narrow view of a sleepy type of voter, who has more interest in one issue, that often is related to a singular bloc of voters. I would also suggest many of these former Obama voters have caused some riffs in their family and friends group of those who did not fall asleep and vote for the cool guy. This is after all the majority group(referring to the party not those specifically in the film), that had no issue at every turn being dirty and nasty to the point they created racial tension as a means of excusing disagreements between voters, on very concrete issues, that their candidate had no experience(and still doesn’t, imo)in resolving. As they were falling into that slumber of political seduction they allowed their candidate to vilify not only his opponent; no he was happy to label the rest of us, including those who wanted Hillary Clinton as some imagined racist enemy to be squashed, threatened, and treat like garbage.
I am happy to see these voters are waking up,but do I believe them? Not necessarily. I find sincerity on the part of obama supporters who have suddenly “turned” and “realize”, too little, and I am not sure if it isn’t too late. They participated in smearing regular everyday people-just like themselves, to elevate an unknown, inexperienced man.I hope from then until now they realize just one thing, and I hope it snaps them into a fully awake mode of functionality when they are considering politics: Was being “Historic” worth it for our country? ….and has your own whatever color guilt you had, less now? It isn’t that I can’t appreciate a mistake when voting, it is just I am still pissed off at the Obama voters to a point for being such rubes, so mesmerized by a show that they missed the real deal, and took pleasure in causing deliberate pain for those of us who remained awake to watch over our country, her constitution and all of our rights. If this is a real change of heart, just know I will be watching with a Missouri attitude. Oh and P.S., if you don’t like how the pundits are represting your opinion NOW,in this nasty-ass second smear campaign against Romney/Ryan, prove yourselves and tell the likes of Kirsten Powers or Chris Matthews to shut the hell up and that they do not represent you properly.
This is who Citizen’s United are:
