Put A Sock In It, Whiners September 22, 2010

So the other day, President Barack “Brother Can’t Catch A Break” Obama held a town hall for CNBC and took questions from the audience. Here’s the first question the poor guy got:

Fig. 1: I was promised a flying car, Mr. President! Where are the flying cars?

Here’s the transcript of what this “exhausted” person said:

I’m one of your middle class Americans. And quite frankly, I’m exhausted. Exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for, and deeply disappointed with where we are right now. I have been told that I voted for a man who said he was going to change things in a meaningful way for the middle class. I’m one of those people. And I’m waiting, sir. I’m waiting. I don’t feel it yet… My husband and I have joked for years that we thought we were well beyond the hot dogs and beans era of our lives, but, quite frankly, it’s starting to knock on our door and ring true that that might be where we’re headed again, and, quite frankly, Mr. President, I need you to answer this honestly. Is this my new reality?

Ok, children, rant time. I am so fucking sick and damn tired of people whining about how the “change” they voted for isn’t coming fast enough. I am fucking sick and damn tired of people who think that this President—or any President for that matter—will wave a wand and sprinkle some fairy dust and then life will automagically be better. From the Congressional Black Caucus to all those LGBT organizations, it seems every constituency that supported Obama is mad as all get out that they don’t have life their way, right away, now.

Basically, shut the fuck up and get to work. Stop waiting for Barack the Magic Negro to save your asses from your own stupidity. This frakked up economy was decades in the making and it’s not going to be fixed overnight, no matter what the Republicans or the Tea Party or the Democrats or Glenn Beck or Sarah Palin or whatever jackalope wearing a $2000 suit and damn American flag pin tells you.

Oh, and to the “exhausted” lady: REALLY? You’re “exhausted”? Well, aren’t you precious? Having conversations that might require you keep up with arguments pro and con exhausts you? How is it, pray tell, that you’re in the position of always having to defend Obama’s policies? Where do you work, Fox News?

And what was your “old reality”? Did you really buy into the foolish fiction that you’d reach your golden years and be able to sit back and be fed grapes and honey by the caring staff of Old People’s Resort and Luxury Spa of Luxury? And sitting on your ass and “waiting”—waiting for what? Are you waiting for Barack Obama to become Captain Save-A-Fool? Did ANY of you impatient whiners out there pay any attention to Obama at all when he said that change would require each of us actually becoming engage and involved citizens? That he couldn’t effect change all by his damn self, no matter how magical his blackness is? Oh, that’s right—too many of you were busy congratulating yourself for being able to hit the right button on a Diebold voting machine and thinking you’d done all that was required of you.

Well, here’s some news you can use, Exhausted Lady: democracy takes work. So get to work and quit whining!
