When Ankenbruck voted for Obama in 2008, he said it was because "I liked his rhetoric. I thought he was sincere. Fresh. New. I thought he was going to bring the country forward."
Featured in "The Hope and the Change," a film by conservative advocacy group Citizens United, Ankenbruck added that four years later, he feels disillusioned by what he sees as Obama's inability to end the partisan bickering in Washington and help pass legislation that is palatable to both parties. He's especially put off by a federal mandate requiring religious institutions to offer their employees insurance coverage for contraception.
