I remember the only thing I didn’t like about Obama initially was that he began dodging votes in the senate, so no one could hold his votes against him in the election. I thought it was dishonest and showed a lack of character.
I really disliked McCain, though, so I didn’t vote. I considered it a wash. I sorta took a powder from voting in presidential elections while Obama was in office, but I showed up to vote against Republican senators and congressmen.
I was glad there was a black president — for my students— but that’s not a good reason to vote.
In retrospect, he got away with a lot of crap because the media covered for him.
I remember ‘hope’ was his big thing. What were people supposed to be hoping for?
That he would reverse Bushes screwed up policies, which he did. And the last 6 years with a congress that tried to thwart him at every turn. Anti American republicans most of whom are still in office.
too bad Trump turned out to be the Great White Dope...
Trump wasn’t a hope, I don’t think, white, great or otherwise. Just another dildo place-holding for a statesman.
Vote Bernie. Vote often.
how many times are you hoping to vote?
me, just the once.
hopefully we get it right this time...
But they are missing a must-read article, in my view.
has no place in history other then 1st black president he changed nothing. Free cell phones for lower income thats all that came out of his time even when he controlled both houses of congress in 2010
With a democratic congress for the first two years of his presidency he cured the Bush abuses of the business and turned the economy around. The fact is he tried to get out of the middle east but big business with the help of a republican congress prevented it. War is profitable and makes jobs. The fact that making stuff that every day citizens can buy doesn't seem to be recognized by. big business.
