Honest Opinions of Obama Supporters on His Policies


***ATTENTION: This video is NOT in support of Mitt Romney, in any way, nor is this organization.***

Luke Rudkowski hits the streets of NYC to find out where Obama supporters really stand on his policies. Now he did this in an underhanded way where the policies where presented to be Romney’s, but this was only done to get an honest opinion. The reactions when the truth was uncovered varied but they were very telling to say the least.

Here are some of the sources that were mentioned throughout the interviews:

    The only thing that can save America is ending the two party system.

  • alizardx

    Opinions based on “left”centrist v right-centrist marketing. Proper, since that is the primary difference between the two parties which share a common neoliberal upwards transfer of wealth doctrine. GOP marketing designed to get the WHITE!!! male vote.

  • Simiantongue

    It is very interesting to see people condemn some policies in one breath then make excuses why it doesn’t matter, or that the person they support has the best of intentions despite those concerns, in the next breath. Something very disheartening about that. Lacks a certain intellectual integrity.

    I’ve often heard it said that people need to “wake up” but I don’t think that’s true at all. Most people are willfully ignorant and work hard to stay that way. I mean, how could you vote for evil otherwise? Even the supposed lesser of two.

  • kowalityjesus

    Howard Stern did something like this in 2008 to oust race favoritism among African-descended Obama supporters. Needless to say, he got 90% of their vote, but I don’t blame them I would probably do the same.

    The general perception is that Mitt Romney could be a sociopath, and Obama would never be willfully malicious. Both of those perceptions are equally untrue. Obama generally does a better job obscuring the impending trainwreck though, so he will probably win the job again.

    • Captain Obvious

      Black people voted 92% Democrat long before Obama which is why the biggest part of Bush rigging the 2000 election was making sure thousands of blacks didn’t vote. Just saying.

  • Liam_McGonagle

    Thanks for the disclaimers.

    It’s unfortunate that our current media models go so little challenged that topics of this kind seldom get raised, let alone serious attention devoted to them. It must have been a long planning session to decide on how to go about this. You know one way or the other, no matter how you broached the topic or disclosed it after the fact, you would have gotten reamed for the non-standard practice.

    It may not have been the intention of the journalism schools to enable this kind of waffling, but it has to be said that the conventional norms do lend themselves to cooption by amoral campaigns more interested in obfuscation than information.

    I’m really tired of these “We aren’t doing this in support of Romney” articles about these handful of policies that people continually criticize Obama for, without taking our situation into context or having maybe an understanding of how twisted America and the world is after decades of Imperialism.
    The reality is that we are on the other side of two illegal invasions of two middle eastern countries in which thousands of our people are dead and maybe a half-millions of their people are dead. Obama is reversing this and is getting heat from the GOP for “dismantling” the military (it’s one of Romney’s running points) and having a general policy of appeasement regarding Iran and terrorism. anti-Obama bumper stickers show his flag being a white one. The whole drone thing and the NDAA thing, etc. is under the circumstances in which we still have a significant number of the populace that are war-mad.
    If you want Iran to be illegally invaded and these policies look like a kid’s gloves, then please continue to harp on these few holdovers from a dark era in American history, then you can make vids about all the truly evil things Romney is doing. If you want it to get better, then you should fight fight fight to have Obama re-elected.
    Because the protesting of these few Obama policies, as if they were all he has done in the past four years, without the understanding of the political climate they are under and without the political support from his own party and/or the American people…I can only conclude that this sort of anti-Obama campaign has to fall under “Accusing him of being everything except a black man” category.
    Yes, he’s black. If you don’t like him because of that, then have the nuts to say so. Otherwise lay off of the one man who can fix our problems, if he could get any real support.
    Fiat lux

      Thanks. I needed a laugh.

    • Andrew

      > holdovers

      Obama has extended and enlarged Bush’s civil liberties and human rights infringements, not just held them over, waiting to get rid of them in his second term.

      Regarding the accusation of racism, I voted for Obama the first time.

    • Borgar

      That’s a pretty obscurantist comment from someone who’s maxim is “Fiat Lux”.

    • WTFMFWOMG

      “Yes, he’s black. If you don’t like him because of that, then have the nuts to say so.” No, he ain’t. He’s half white, and that’s the half the powers-that-be like. Don’t worry, the Oreo-In-Chief will get four more years, because he gets away with shit no 100% white president could. Remember, it isn’t who votes that counts, it’s who counts the votes. The bashit insane “opposition” was put in place by the Bipartisan Party specifically to lose. You people really think you have a choice. ROFLMAO!

      • chromatius

        “Yes, he’s black. If you don’t like him because of that, then have the nuts to say so.”

        Actually, what about the reverse, the real dirty question. How many people support him, and/or refuse to criticise, simply because he’s black?

        Fabulous marketing by the 1%.

        • Godozo

          I’ve heard from both the black-haters and the black-only types of voters.

          I’ve also heard from folks who would make those types of voters look logical and reasonable. Yes, it’s that type of election.

  • WTFMFWOMG

    Questioning Obama’s policies is racist.
    Don’t forget to vote for the lesser of two evils.
