I used to be an Obama fan but I can be one no longer
It has had some effect but not really
No effect on me at all
I've never held a high opinion of Obama, nor was I overly enthusiastic about his victory, but if I didn't support him I was ultimately going against my best interest.
As for the scandals, I have a rule of thumb to wait for the dust to clear before making my opinion known. Too often I've tried to hop in and found myself surrounded by nothing but bull****.
"Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough."
No effect-- I already held his administration in contempt.
I voted for Obama in 2008 and was cautiously optimistic. I lost confidence in him well before the scandals, though. He is just another politician beholden to the corporatocracy. I love what he says. But I hate what he does.
Obama: I have no idea what's going on.
It doesn't hold much water with me because I think it's really a curse of the second term (poor word choice but bear with me), these "scandales" are similar to the issues that Clinton and Bush 1&2 faced. I think at this point these are serious issues that need to be dealt with, but I would be more worried if Obama was constantly worried about them instead of focusing on re-building our economy, or the international issues of today.
If you took the time to educate yourself about Obama and and his history prior to being elected senator you would have known he was unfit to be President mainly due to experience. That being said I thought he would be bad for the country and these scandals just confirmed my thoughts.
