So many Americans have bought into Obama’s rhetoric that he is The One who can bring Hope and Change that even the Obama campaign sees a need to lower expectations — after the election, of course.
But it’s too late for one El Paso, Texas, man who apparently committed suicide this morning by jumping off an elevated highway interchange. Police confirmed he left a note in his car that read, “Obama take care of my family.”
UPDATE 1 — More expectations from an Obama supporter:
“I never thought this day would happen. I won’t have to [work/worry] on puttin’ gas in my car. I won’t have to [work/worry] at payin’ my mortgage.
You know. If I help him [Obama], he’s gonna help me.”
UPDATE 2: Thanks for the Hot Air link and welcome Hot Air patrons.
UPDATE BY PATTERICO: Here’s what I hear:
I never thought this day would ever happen. I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage.
You know. If I help him, he’s gonna help me.
There are a lot of ways to interpret that.
