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?

@Lash,
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.

@Region Philbis,
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.

But I get your meaning. I think the biggest negative about using it, it causes some of his ardent supporters to reject the piece unread.

True.

@revelette1,
But they are missing a must-read article, in my view.
