Disappointed Supporters Question Obama on Live TV

Tuesday, 21 Sep 2010 08:27 AM

“Investing in America,” a televised dialogue last night between President Barack Obama and American workers, featured many disillusioned Obama supporters anxiously adrift from the proverbial American dream. Also in the mix were Wall Street folks tired of being the whipping boys of the administration, according to a New York Times report.

Obama, tv, DISSAPPOINTED, questioners“I’m exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for,” said one questioner. “I’ve been told that I voted for a man who was going to change things in a meaningful way for the middle class and I’m waiting sir, I’m waiting. I still don’t feel it yet.”

Another questioner appealed: “I was really inspired by you and your campaign and the message you brought, and that inspiration is dying away,” he said, adding, “And I really want to know, is the American dream dead for me?”

For his part, the president defended that he was not antibusiness. As to the disgruntled middle class, he noted, “There are a whole host of things we’ve put in place to make your life better,” highlighting the healthcare legislation, a financial regulatory overhaul, and a bill that increased the availability of student loans.
