Republicans will always fault Obama for something. What really burned my butt is when Paul Ryan who put terms on his being speaker of the house; he wanted to be with his family every weekend or something like that. Who the blank does he think he is, when there are people who work two to three jobs just to pay the bills and put food on the table for their family, and struggle everyday to make ends meet.
Living where we do we here about The Donald all the time and he sounds like a jerk. Could I get in trouble for calling a president a jerk? Nah.

Ok so, Lynx. I always like to analyze in case you haven't noticed. I suspect your local area, being a university town, would have less support for a comb over big mouth like Trump & more for a legitimate, although right wing candidate like Rubio. Correct me if I'm wrong.
I don't think your average Republican is happy with their choices.
Talking to a brother last night by phone, I see him voting for some Republican based on his one-issue anti-abortion stance. What I so wish is that pro-lifers would look at the big picture. Once they force a birth, it's hands off and you're on your own (pulling support for people who can't afford it). I read something written by a nun months ago who felt the Republican party did not have Christian values (my fuzzy memory - but this is the gist). Republicans NOT having Christian values is so true.
This is not the nun I was thinking of (I believe) but is an example of what I meant:
I'm old enough to know that 99.9% of the badmouthing of presidents is party talk, so I tend to ignore it after a little research in my memory banks. I was 21 when I badmouthed Reagan without voting and got a good reaming from a coworker. I absolute deserved it and was absolutely wrong regarding my comment. I learned my lesson then. Kind of, hahaha. I've voted for people who've won and I've voted for people who've lost. I can tell you this:
I am flat terrified that Trump will somehow win the Presidency. I so do not want to be on this earth if that happens. Of course, I'm of the opinion that not many will be left on this earth by the time that term ends if he's not impeached. Providing we get a chance to do that. All that man knows how to do is work his mouth and fire others for doing exactly what he's done in the past, then denied. Putting him that close to the red button will mean a Third World War, even if he doesn't fire first. His mouth is enough to set it off and he's arrogant enough to believe it's his right. I'm incredulous he made it this far, but not really surprised. Kind of reinforces my opinion of a lot of American people. I need to spend a bit more time on FB to see how my cousins, some of whom are radical Republicans, are talking.
That said, Clinton may not be wonderful a president, but as my husband says, she's all we have between us and Trump. Go Hilary (said with lots of hope).

Along with the article itself, I also read quite a few of the comments on this one and found them very, very interesting. Lots of conservatives see through him.
Also this one.
Of course, it's really Hillary, almost certainly the next POTUS, whom we need to fear. She's not ignorant and impulsive, but she is very comfortable wielding US power in ways that appall me. And I wouldn't be surprised if her enemies in Congress slap her with impeachment the instant she takes her hand off the Bible.

But why do you say she's "comfortable wielding US power in ways that appall me?" The Secretary of State doesn't have a whole lot of power, and I'm curious as to what you mean.
