Obama Looking for Hope in All the Wrong Places
Last month, at a CNBC-sponsored town hall meeting in Washington, President Barack Obama was forcefully questioned by Velma Hart, one of his supporters from the 2008 campaign. An African-American and the chief financial officer of AMVETS, a veterans’ group, she made clear her disappointment with his performance as president.
“I’m a wife, I’m an American veteran, and I’m one of your middle-class Americans. And, quite frankly, I’m exhausted,” she exclaimed. “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.”
Exhausted and disappointed.
Many Americans feel this way right now. I know I do.
