I have a very close Democrat friend. We have heated conversations about Obama and she has vigorously defended him.
However, today we were discussing the bank bailout and how they were working to help people who were in trouble with their mortgages get better interest rates.
I unleashed on her. I said look at his cabinet picks - many have dropped out because of questionable ethics - this is what I said about Obama and his associations with Wright and Ayers. You can judge a man by his friends.
I went on to rail about redistribution of wealth and she responded it isn't Obama. I responded by pointing out that his is pick that is bailing out people who made poor choices while the rest of us have to deal with whatever interest rate we might have.
They are taking our money and giving it to others. That is redistribution of wealth and that is one of the many reasons I opposed Obama.
My friend hung her head and said stop poking - I am very close to becoming a Republican, but your poking is not helping.
I shut up.
