Why should Trump clear up the fact that democrats didn't care about resumes when Obama, a wholly unqualified inept buffoon got elected to the most powerful position on the planet.

I know what you're referring to - I'm just saying your distinction is kind of silly, are you really trying to say it's ok that an unqualified person got elected POTUS but it's somehow a travesty that a 24 year gets appointed to what appears to be a pretty minor bureaucratic position? If you are, that's dumb.

Trump will likely become the worst POTUS in my lifetime, if he doesn't pass away first from a poor diet, or is impeached. Reagan was the worst domestically, Bush junior/Cheney (who actually was the real POTUS, especially during the former's first term) are the worst globally.

Trump has no redeeming character traits whatsoever, his only skill is in speaking the grade-school braggart language of poorly educated simpletons, and boasting like the malignant narcissist megalomaniac that he is. His abysmal approval ratings, which were pathetically awful from the get-go, and which now continue to worsen are proof.

Obama was unqualified in your opinion, which doesn't make it factual.

Promoting a wet behind the ears colllege grad, with zero experience, training, or skillset, (who also lied on his resumes according to his school), into that position of greater responsibility, which happens to be involve an agency that must deal with an extremely serious nationwide epidemic of Rx and illegal drug abuse, is the height of stupidity.


They could have hired one of Pax Prentiss (@PaxPrentiss). CEO of @PassagesMalibu's newer "consultants" and even that would have made more sense.

Oops

Bush number 2 was in way over his head and poor Obama and the Democrats had to clean up the mess of a disaster the Republicans caused under Cheney erhhh I mean Bush... and BTW. It's not even close how much better Obama was over Bush lol..
Obama qualifications dwarf Trump and Bush.. it's hard to get worse then Nixon, Ronnie and the Bushes but the Gop has a real bad one in KFC eating fat boy Trump.
He probably needs another round of golf lol!!!!

Yeah...if this was the late 60s-early 70s, and the heydaze of SDS, John Sinclair, John Lennon, and his wife Yoko Ono.

Ever watch the '84 movie "The Big Chill"?

It chronicled the changing times from punkish MC5 anti-establishment/war rebellion to family/career-minded "Reagan Democrat " Yuppies. (the SF Haight-Asbury hippie/flower power era not as well represented in SE MI, save the brief Plum Street era in downtown Detroit)

he's really gonna have to f some stuff up because right now, he's way ahead of Carter and Obama. He's probably ahead of Bush II.

that's true, what makes it a fact is the 8 years he spent in office.

6 of which were spent with a Republican-majority HoR Congress, whose only "accomplishments" were to filibuster and obstruct, and a GOP Senate, whose sole stated goal was to make Obama a "one-term" POTUS.

Trump wiil be facing the same situation in '19, if past history is any indication.

I know, I shudder to imagine how bad it would have been if Congress wasn't able to stop him the few times they didn't cave into him. I dislike John Boehner about as much as I dislike Obama, but they're both still way behind the Clintons.

Hard to say, as much as people crank it up to 11 about Trump and the Republicans, the Democrats are as if not more dysfunctional right now.
