Regret is a terrible feeling because there is nothing you can really do to alleviate a sadness or disappointment felt by something that has already happened. Such is the case for many Americans with their vote to reelect Barack Obama.
According to a new poll by The Economist/YouGov.com, “Given a chance to do it all over again, only 79 percent of those who voted for President Obama would vote for him again and 71 percent of Obama voters now inclined to vote for somebody else 'regret' their vote to reelect the president.”
If the election were held today, based on these figures, Mitt Romney would be president. You can read more of the specifics here in the Washington Examiner but one that stuck out is that 100 percent of Hispanics who voted for Obama say they would vote for someone else if the election were held again.
ObamaCare hits another note of regret for the American people. According to recent Fox News polling, “Over half of American voters regret that the Affordable Care Act passed, and nearly two-thirds say it never would have -- if we knew then what we know now … Overall, 64 percent of voters don’t think the law would have passed if we knew back in 2009 what we know today. Majorities of Republicans (74 percent), independents (68 percent) and even Democrats (54 percent) say it wouldn’t have passed.”
Barack Obama's promises and rhetoric and not living up to reality and failing to improve our American way of life. It seems he will leave us with a legacy of stubborn radicalism, rather than a better, stronger America.
