Yea well you can make an argument that Obama was a clown too in his own way, paving the way to nationalist populism by catering to and empowering the far left

 

How about we get someone moderate and non ideological next time

This is nonsense babble real politician doesn't mean anything. Yes Obama had more integrity and good intentions but he ended up digging the country into the same nationalist ditch as the rest of the West, and got played by Putin like a fiddle. 

 

I don't like Obama so I'm a white trash racist? Fuck outta here with that 5th grade logic

so much truth. no drivel added. exactly what's happening and it's sad anyone that doesn't see all sides of it. 

 

GOP are proposing another tax swivel btw in the amounts of 3.4 TRILLION to the wealthy.  lmfao.  When it's so fucking clear who the bad guy is, I don't see HOW the public hasn't figured out how to vote yet.

 

Ooooh. I don't want to be a stinky liberal.  Brand name suicide.  :D
