“Feeling What Not Having Hope Feels Like?”

You would think that after eight wonderful years of Barack Obama’s “hope and change,” most Americans would be feeling satisfied about the direction of the country. Not according to Michelle Obama. She admitted to Oprah Winfrey early this week that her husband’s failed policies have left America, “feeling what not having hope feels like.”

I love the analogy she gave in equating Americans to little infants who don’t quite understand how to react when dealing with everyday happenstances. It’s as if we are all infants that need her and her husband’s big government policies to navigate our own lives so we can live a proper existence. This is the problem with liberal socialists. They believe they know what’s better for the average American citizen.

So much for the fundamental transformation of the United States? That’s what Obama’s idea of “hope and change” was all about. It was government mandated collectivism that coerced Americans into conforming to rules and regulations to live their daily lives. With her husband’s presidency winding down, Michelle and her husband need to come to the understanding that a majority of Americans never looked at their government to give them hope. After eight long years this administration has proven that hope is something that government can’t possibly provide.
