Anyone tired of "Defending Obama"?

Anyone shocked to see Obama on CNBC? What did you think of this?

Women at his Town Hall: I'm one of your middle class Americans. And quite frankly, I'm exhausted. Exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for," a woman told President Obama at a town hall.

"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?," she added.

  • I've never like him personally, nor have I ever defended him. He's doing exactly what I figured he'd do and worse.

  • The Dems are a less scary group of people
    How the heck Nancy and Specter don't scare the party empty is beyond me.

  • I'm tired of listening to people constantly bitch about him, ignoring the fact that he's not the one that got us into this mess into the first place.

  • I'm not tired of defending him but that was a good question. Apparently she has money problems and is looking to blame rather than take responsibility for her lack of financial planning.

    How did he respond? That's what I'm interested in...
