She adds: "I don't know if I'm a fan of Obamacare."

She hasn't quite figured out what it means for her. All she knows is that she gets all kinds of paperwork if she goes to the hospital now.


Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the "undecided voter."

She's seriously wondering which President would be a better commander-in-chief for her son? Ladies and gentlemen, "undecided voters".

Fair enough, she has some right to question Obama on things undelivered, even though she says she isn't disappointed and understands.

But on what earth does she think Romney would be a better choice?
 
2012-08-10 01:35:08 PM  
Ha. Headline.
 
2012-08-10 01:35:13 PM  
Why is she named after The Daily Keith Olbermann Show?

That was a lot of words to say absolutely nothing, NPR. Also, fark this lady.

I was gonna politinerdrage here and say this was bull because I heard an interview with Markos this morning ripping into Mitt and lovin' on Obama, and then I actually read the article.

If you vote Republican because you're concerned about where Barack Obama is taking this country, you need a new map.

And with that, Kos and her daughter Sofia go back to cleaning the paint out of the garage.

"So that's my life," she says with a laugh. "You guys got me in a nutshell. See I don't think that I need to sit here with you farkin' dildos anymore!"


Rude.

She moves around a lot, but buys her houses and is surprised when they don't always go up in value.

An undecided voter.

She is right, 0bama and Reid's magic underwear has the COUNTRY in a nutshell

That is the problem!

Markos would rip into Mitt and love 0bama even if they completely switched positions on everything. That is what it means to be a fan boy.

Listened to this segment on NPR early this morning. As I was driving, right about when it said she's doesn't have an opinion on Obamacare and just knows she has to do some paperwork at the hospital, I said aloud something to the effect of "Who gives a shiat what this random woman thinks and why is this on NPR?"

The hospitals call it "Sudoku" which sounds Soviet.

From the article, I would venture she is chronically insecure.

Her son is going into the military, she has a precious snowflake doing unspecified child things, and because of that and her privileged suburbanite environment showing signs of actually being part of the rest of the world, she is unnerved that her fantasy of what her life should be like is unraveling - and she needs someone to blame for it.

But that is exactly how NPR and other LSM organizations operate.

Let me tell you an emotional story, complete with a kid and a hard working couple, so I can completely ignore any facts.

They do this all the time with student loan stories - let me find the emotional story about someone who owes $150k and ignore that the average student debt is around 20k.
 
2012-08-10 01:46:09 PM  
I'm just not sure who to vote for. Obama has healthcare, but Football in the Groin has a football in the groin!

As much as we might hate it, there are lots of people who just aren't good with complicated issues. Long term planning might strech to the end of the week. If you put paper in front of them they will sign it. Taxes are scary. They can't plan for retirement. Easy answers are assumed to be correct.
 
2012-08-10 01:47:09 PM  
I have talked to people like this woman who are not happy with Fartbongo but not one has come up with a reason to vote for Rmoney other than he is the only other person running and the country needs "change"

As far as I could tell, she's just confused about what to do with her life in general, which is understandable.

It's interesting that the article called the vote an "emotional decision". Maybe that's what a big part of the country is going off of in terms of deciding who to vote for, or even whether to vote.

Hospitals require paperwork. "Obamacare" is a word she's heard recently, and she's pretty sure it has to do with hospitals. Therefore, Obama is the reason that

You've got to remember that these are just simple farmers suburbanites. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West South. You know... morons undecided voters.

It's funny because Mitt has in fact completely switched positions on everything.

If she's anything like my coworkers, this woman only watches the 10:00 local news, and only goes on the internet once per day to check her email. Trying to have any kind of discusson or debate on actual world events with them is pointless.

Or, is that just where family pics are taken?

The fact you used LSM non-ironically, especially when referring to NPR just makes me want to point and laugh at you.

She doesn't sound very privileged. I mean, some of my friends are chefs and they're not pulling in any more cash than a regular middle class job even at not quite fine dining but $20-$30 entree gigs. She lives in a neighborhood with a lot of foreclosures. At this point, there is more poverty in the suburbs than in the city.

Maybe she has unrealized expectations of what she thought her life would be like, but I wouldn't call her privileged in any way. This sentence tells you a lot about her:

She breaks off, in tears.

"The future is - it's a very scary place."


This doesn't sound like a person who thinks ahead very well. It sounds like she just expected things to work out well without really any planning on her part.

To be fair, there was no paperwork at all at hospitals before health care reform.
 
2012-08-10 01:59:09 PM  
She has a son who just joined the army. Okay.

If McCain were President we would still be in Iraq. He openly advocated also invading Syria and Iran.

Romney flat out stated that he wanted Israel to dictate US foreign policy.

WTF are you on the fence about?
 
2012-08-10 02:02:36 PM  
FTFA "They both decided on Obama in 2008, she says."

Translation: She votes how her husband tells her to vote.

I think the paperwork comment was in reference to her current hospital experience.

The "man on the street" has always been an idiot. CNN just decided to talk to him on Twitter instead.

lennavan: To be fair, there was no paperwork at all at hospitals before health care reform.


Yeah, that's what I don't get.

I'm guessing this lady has very poor memory skills. Sure, every other time She's ever gone to the hospital she's had to fill out paper work, but this time she went and the receptionist said "because of the new affordable care act, we need you to fill out this form." So now in her mind that paperwork is because of Obamacare, when before Obamacare she just would have had to fill out a slightly different form that also perhaps had a different font and margins.

The undecided voter.

Obama did say something about change a lot. I don't know, changes are hard.

And the worst part is... she never learned to read. All N0bama has done since being elected is to keep throwing her one failing in life--truly the responsibility of her absentee father and alcoholic mother--back in her face every chance he gets. I heard she even worked tirelessly on his campaign for free and when the local campaign leaders mentioned her dilligence to the head bongo, he sent her a copy of his own book, signed in illegible scrawl to the illiterate, filled with information she couldn't access. It was the beginning of the end between them. Later, she would be told it said "Kos, keep up the hard work. Thanks for your support, together I know we can change this nation for the better! Jah love, B Hussein Obama" but it was too little too late.

She's on the fence because she doesn't know jack shiat about the candidates. Ergo, she has to rely on alternative means of choosing a candidate. Actually learning about the candidates and their policy positions is hard.
