    History will be kind to President Obama

    ​ “[​President ​Obama] has amassed a record of policy accomplishment far deeper than even many of his supporters give him credit for. He has also survived a dismal, and frequently terrifying, 72 months when at every moment, to go by the day-to-day media, a crisis has threatened to rock his presidency to its core … the BP oil spill, swine flu, the Christmas underwear bomber, the IRS scandal, the healthcare.org launch, the border crisis, Benghazi. …”He has a legendarily, almost fanatically placid temperament. He has now spent eight years, counting from the start of his first presidential campaign, keeping his head while others were losing theirs.”​

      Too bad about the complete abrogation of responsibility of the Obama Administration in regulating, breaking up and cleaning up Wall Street & the banks after 9/15/2008.

    Who makes GOPers say the stupidest things as if they were true?
    Rupert Murdoch, that’s who.

    This is what you end up with as your vetted, filtered political nut that will say the “right” things.

    Rupert Murdoch: “…Muslims Must Be Held Responsible’

    https://twitter.com/rupertmurdoch

    ​​Just as white people must be held responsible for all white crime.​ Catholics for all priest molesters, etc.

    GOP voter,

    ​You keep listening to this guy, reading his editorials. watching his infotainment.​ The chief pipes operator for the GOP media machine. THAT’S why when you face someone who has the data they make of fool out of the bias, incompetent blather that comes out of your pie hole.

    Hey Republican. YOU are this clown.

    I have difficulty with the Bush/Clinton dynasty meme that appears to be building in the media.

    Bush I’m okay with since there have been two of them as president and a third one is now trying to get elected president. But with the Clinton’s, only one them has been president.

    I wouldn’t mind seeing Elizabeth Warren as president but unsure that she has the necessary experience.

      yeah, America has always had problems with oligarchy, those founding fathers (the original right wingers, libertarians who didn’t want to pay taxes), and clans like the Roosevelts and Kennedy. I hope that Hillary wins just for the political theater. Remember people not wanting those polarizing Clintons on 2008, we needed the uniter Obama, and the politics of compromise. kumbaya
