Response to coalition_unwilling (Reply #21)

Sun Aug 26, 2012, 11:43 AM

33. Exactly.

He had a good job as a construction supervisor which evaporated when the housing bubble burst. He then took a life long interest in horses, went to farrier school and became a farrier. And he is damn good for only having been at it for a few years. But even though I tell him over and over again that the housing bubble problem and his subsequent job loss all happened before Obama even came into office, he always replies with some version of "I am doing worse now than I was then."

The details sometimes change, but the tune stays the same.
