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.
