    I watched the Letterman and Obama episodes of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee last night to prepare.

    Pretty sad, when we become nostalgic for a President who is only out of office for a single year.

    Twenty five years from now the only remembrance will be this question on a 4th grade history test.

    Who was the first black American President?

    A) William Jefferson Clinton.

    B) Barack Hussein Obama.

    Half the class will get it wrong when they choose A.

    You can pine for Obama all you want. He's gone.

    And good riddance to him. One of our most ineffectual Presidents, he left the country in much worse shape than he found it. The same is true of his effect on the Democratic Party.

    The Democratic Party has been hollowed out, Paul. Think about where it was when he came into office. These are the facts.

    Maybe you should tell Sky you're going to draw a line in the sand, that will straighten him up.

    It is amazing, these people. They care more about smiles, speeches. manners and palatability than they do about competence, performance and results.

    They deserve Trump. They don't know it, but they chose him just as surely as if they had voted for him.

    Actually, Trump will make Obama famous beyond your imagination as the adult before the child.

    What passes for humor in your posts is another good example of why other postings shine.

    Oh but that means he hit a nerve and is upsetting the apple cart, clearing the cobwebs, massaging the metaphors, tickling your sensibilities.

    Nah, it is very difficult to draw Paul out. Almost anything triggers you, though.

    Gone, but not forgotten. Every day from watching your emperor, we are reminded what a good and decent president Obama was. Love or hate his policies, he was, (and is) a good and decent man. This country has enjoyed many fine presidents and a handful of awful ones. History is harsh and your man will go down as possibly the worst preceded by one of the best.
    As silly as the Oprah thing is, I'd vote for her or anybody over Trump. Trump is the bottom of the barrel. It can't get any worse then this.

    The best statement I've seen from this latest carnage came from a student who lived through it -

    Remember voting age is 18. Read it and weep reds.

    your emperor
    If you're an American, he's your President. If you don't like that, get off your duff and organize. Donate all that you can.

    Please for the love of Pete do something other than whine and moan into the Bilge day after day, month after month.

    Isn't this "whining & moaning"?

    BTW - I think you'll find that many of us do those things.

    I'm an American and he ain't my president because I'm not one of those who enjoy kissing his butt. That's your job apparently SB and bobbys!.

    Grant really wasn't dishonest, some of his cabinet members were. Harding was dishonest, Nixon was dishonest, Trump is dishonest.

    Wait a sec! Do you think maybe (just maybe) mdh thinks the Obama administration was corrupt?

    I know that'd make him sound incredibly foolish, but maybe he does?

    If he has any sense, he's talking about Harding. So, probably you're right.
