For all those Republicans who voted for Obama, how are you feeling now?

Do you regret voting for Obama? Would you go for the McCain/Palin ticket, or are you happy with your choice?

As an American who exercised their right not to vote, I can answer with a resounding, “meh”.

Would Palin have quit that job too?

I don’t regret voting for Obama..

Oh wait, I’m not republican.

I’d have done it all again. Give it a rest. He’s only been in office 7 months!

Blondesjon's avatar

With my hands, same as always, why?

sorry AstroChuck

the question should be ” for all those republicans who voted for Bush, how are you feeling now?

mzdesigns's avatar

oh wait they are still in denial (LOL)

Fabulous! Thank you for asking!

I’m a Republican who voted for McCain and I’m happy, so far, with the job that Obama is doing. I didn’t regret voting for McCain but Obama was probably the better choice for president and he’s doing the best he can so far. I’m pretty sure no one on Fluther could do a better job as president (given the opportunity) than Obama is already doing.

lol typical rebublican answer

@mzdesigns: Huhbuwha?!

@Bluefreedom, a republican just said Obama was doing a decent job thus far and was probably the best man for the job.

How was that a “typical” Republican response?

Seemed rather thoughtful to me.

it was this ‘I’m pretty sure no one on Fluther could do a better job as president (given the opportunity) than Obama is already doing.” *wink

mzdesigns's avatar

try reading :)

juwhite1's avatar

@mzdesigns – I somehow doubt anyone on Fluther could do a better job if they had the opportunity as well. I’m not following your train of thought.

mzdesigns's avatar

its called sarcasm

cookieman's avatar

@mzdesigns: Correct. He was defending Obama from the critics here on Fluther. Again, not a typical Republican response.

Try being polite. :|

Bluefreedom's avatar

Didn’t mean to ruffle feathers or anything like that. Sorry everyone.

mzdesigns's avatar

nothing to be sorry for, I just hate when people take things out of context and post partial statements IMO this is the case to often with politics, but it is “typical” from narrow minded people.

BBSDTfamily's avatar

Didn’t vote for him, and sure as %&#@ won’t vote for him next term either.

mzdesigns's avatar

being polite is what got America into this problem ;)

augustlan's avatar

My husband is a Republican who voted for Obama. He says it’s too soon to tell if he made the right choice.

mzdesigns's avatar

I wish we had this much discretion about GWB back when he first started his terms.

Jeruba's avatar

@Bluefreedom, you’ve said nothing that requires an apology. I think it’s mzdesigns who missed the mark with sarcasm that fell flat.

mzdesigns's avatar

sarcasm that got 4 great answers lol so i think you must be a typical republican who skips the reading requirement :)

mzdesigns's avatar

btw it starts from the top, and he was the one being sarcastic.

Jeruba's avatar

Me? a typical Republican?? Hah!

I’ve been around here with Bluefreedom for some time now and seen his views before. He has actually helped me recover a little respect for Americans of the red-state persuasion. I did not detect any sarcasm. I took his remarks as sincere. He was certainly not being sassy and fresh.

Judi's avatar

@mzdesigns ; Being polite is what got us INTO this problem? I think it was the fact that Bush was so completely arrogant and IMPOLITE!

mzdesigns's avatar

maybe he was but the way he phrased it wasnt. iit was sarcasm judi that was the point :)

cookieman's avatar

Sorry @mzdesigns, gotta disagree.

Perhaps if you stick around long enough, you’ll get to know people well enough before you start labeling them (incorrectly, I might add).

Meaning, you are very far off-base about @Jeruba and @Bluefreedom.

mzdesigns's avatar

i think you all need to learn how to read. perhaps that is the problem. just READ. ARROGANCE is bliss.

Bluefreedom's avatar

During the times when I’ve posted responses that are sarcastic and pointed, I feel that they are readily noticeable for the most part. My answer for the purposes of this question didn’t contain sarcasm but was instead my honest thoughts just as @Jeruba and @cprevite both stated. (And thank you both for your good responses)

mzdesigns's avatar

thats good, i think sometimes its needed.

mzdesigns's avatar

and btw basing someone/thoughts by “labeling” (hence looking at the Lurve # or when they joined is exactly that- labeling”)I happened to look at this site before i “joined” hence you fall yourself into this catergory.

chyna's avatar

@cprevite I thought it was just me not getting it.

mzdesigns's avatar

should i try ebonics?

mzdesigns's avatar

Perhaps if you stick around long enough, you’ll get to know people well enough before you start labeling them (incorrectly, I might add).

hence you labeled me as being “new” based on a lurve point number or when i joined this site.

chyna's avatar

@mzdesigns Only if that’s your first language. It’s not my first language, which would be English.
