Hat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network.
We all remember the soundbite that Peggy Joseph uttered after Obama’s euphoric election back in 2008.
“I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage,” a worshipful Ms. Joseph said after attending a 2008 Obama rally at the height of his messianic euphoria stage.
As with almost everything associated with Barack Obama, when the image meets reality, there’s a harsh slap in the face of realization that he’s not the Messiah. Documentary film maker, Joel Gilbert looked up Ms. Joesph and sat down with her to talk about her famous quote and how she looks back on it now.
Joel Gilbert caught up with Peggy Joseph for the filming of his new full-length documentary film, “There’s No Place Like Utopia,” six years after Joseph thought that Barack Obama would pay for her gas and her mortgage.
Ms. Joseph told Gilbert, after viewing the 2008 segment together that gave her notoriety, that not only has Obama not been paying her gas or mortgage, but both have gotten progressively harder to pay.
“During that time, we needed a change, but change for the better, not for the worse,” an awakened Peggy Joseph told Gilbert.
“He had a very big voice, just like the Wizard of Oz,” Joseph said, comparing Obama to the famous phony wizard. “The wizard was this little teeny-teeny tiny man, and I think it’s the same thing with Obama, the man behind the curtain,” Ms. Joseph said in a reflective, disappointing tone.
Ms. Joseph looks back at the time of her 2008 interview, saying, “I was Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. That’s how I feel.”
“What I learned is never trust the Wizard,” Joseph now says. “It’s within ourselves to have the determination, the courage, and the brains, to bring us to our destiny.”
And oddly enough, we find out that Peggy Joseph is the daughter of Haitian immigrant, works very hard as a nurse, and has never accepted government assistance of any kind.
It is good to see that Ms. Joseph is able to admit her mistake and also that she’s now let this lead her to being more informed on the issues. So maybe, in this one case, we can say that when it comes to this enlightened voter; “Obama, you did build that.”
