Recently I was in a hospital radiology waiting room with two other persons, an elderly self-proclaimed native Floridian red-necked male and a Hispanic person employed in the home health field.
This loquacious 80-something WWII Air Force veteran was sharing with the other room occupant that “Obama” was in a “no-win ” situation and doesn’t blaming him for doing the best he could under the circumstances. He also shared “scuttlebutt” on two US Senators currently in Washington who want us to “rule the World”.
This gentleman made us aware that he had recently received a fund-raising letter from Gov. Rick Scott whose greeting said “Dear Friend”. He was truly incensed to have received this letter and let Scott’s people know in no uncertain terms to take him off their list, and he certainly wasn’t “their friend”.
The Hispanic lady was excited as she was getting extra training to start her own “home Health venture”, and wouldn’t have been able to do it without “Obamacare”.
President Obama and company, forget those polls. A number of persons of all races and genders I speak to in Florida “have your back”. Also, I’ve stopped answering pollsters telephone calls for a year, and don’t intend to resume anytime soon.
People I speak with in Florida and around the country haven’t forgotten Romney and the 47 percent, as well as The Republican Party regarding women’s right’s; reproductive rights; voting rights; LBGT; equal pay for women; unemployment insurance, food stamps, and the list is endless.
President Obama, “don’t let the clowns get you down”.
Your list of accomplishments will live on into perpetuity regardless of murkiness” employed by the Republicans to make you look less than “legitimate”.
Remember, we are dealing with small minds of bigioted and biased people.
“Keep the faith”, and “keep on pushing”.
I’ll say it for you Mr. President — Republican’s and some pundits were never going to make it easy for a bi-racial male in the White House. Remember, some of them purportedly on the night of your first inauguration met to plot your downfall. Does the name Eric Cantor come to mind?
Let’s face it, a majority of American people that they poll don’t remember history, and will always want revisionist history as far as you’re concerned. For these folks, “white privilege, male privilege” is alive and well”. They are freaking out about “people of color” eventually becoming the majority in America.
I know you will continue to “do the right thing”.
