Do you regret how you voted?

Do you regret how you voted in the presidential election? If you voted for Obama, do you think he's doing a poor job and wish you had voted the other way? If you voted McCain, do you think Obama is doing a good job and wish you had supported him from the beginning? Just wondering what your thoughts are.
Personally, I rode the fence until the bitter end when I was a McCain supporter and feel like I was right in that. Many of the things that Obama is saying and doing make me cringe.

  • It's not that there are silly questions. This one just gets asked ALL the time.

    Me,. I don't waste time with regret. I have never regretted a single vote I've ever cast. Instead, I look at the consequences and learn to work with them.

  • OP here. I profusely apologize to those of you who I inconvenienced by asking such a silly question. As previously stated, I was just curious. I, personally, don't get on CM everyday and therefore have not seen this question before. (However, you didn't have to take time out of your busy lives to answer.)

    I wondered about this because during our last presidency, I voted for Bush and I DID regret it. I thought he did a sorry job in his second term at least. And now, like I already said, I think Obama isn't doing so great, and I wondered if any of his election supporters now felt the same.

  • OP, most of his supporters are on the 'wait and see' plan. They won't admit to regretting it and only the very honest ones will tell you exactly what they disagree with him on, but they still support him.

  • It's really not silly. In fact Obama is dropping so fast in the ratings that you never know. The smart people have to be rethinking their choice.
