Ace it's funny to see how blinded you are by your ideology.

If you were right he would have been gone after the first term.
The Obamas brought class and respect from around the globe.  Trump is turning the presidency into a Jerry Springer show.  Instead of greeting foreign diplomats with a handshake he is going to what to grab their crotch.  I think he is gay.
That ain't exactly true.  Obama got his second term because the republicans screwed up their chance.  At the time, his approval ratings weren't so swell.   The Romney/Palin ticket was the dream team for the conservatives, but for the centrists and swing voters, not so much.  It was that middle group that got Obama elected again.

Now, as for your final aspersion, you have heard why in Chicago Obama is known as "Bathhouse Barry" haven't you?
Winter is coming.

I can't say I hate the government, but I am proudly distrustful of them.

I voted for obama over romney.  I am glad that he was not successful with the gun regulation he was trying to pass but over all I don't think that vote was a mistake.  I don't mind supporting trump on the issues he takes that I like and I don't mind being against him on the issues he takes that I don't like.  I am never sure that a devided nation is bad.  It is the utimate checks and balances.  Now with the republicans haveing a majority every where, I am betting that in two years there will be a major correction in the voting to get back to that devided state. 

As far as actors takeing positions on things other then acting.  I don't mind.  If they are taking a position on something I agree with, my respect for that actor goes up a bit.  If he supports something I don't like, then my respect goes down.  One thing for sure, I have a little respect for those who don't hide but put themselve out for what they believe.  Not so much respect that it makes me change the things I believe in.

cheers

What we believe or someone else believes shouldn't carry any weight over the constitution. Our country has gotten so far from it, it's no wonder opinion matters so much.

Oh yeah, Palin and Trump have the same IQ.  I'm surprised he doesn't claim he is going to keep an eye on the Russians by looking at them out his dining room window at the top of the Trump Tower.

I don't know what a bathhouse Barry is.

I am so glad I swallowed my tea before I read that!!   :grin:
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
