1. yes

for a short 8 years we did!

President Obama was a great example of what a United States President should be and do... we have had very few of those over the years

Jimmy Carter was another

So sad he was so underrated in his day.

25. Don't think any of his Republican critics can explain how his policies created bad economy

That's what they always criticize him for, but I've never heard anyone explain how, specifically his policies created unemployment or high interest rates. It was an economic cycle, partly driven by increased oil costs/oil embargo. The cycle would have improved in the 80s if he'd been elected, without all the debt that Reagan added.

12. Thank you - I'd be honored if you passed it on.

This was simply my musings after viewing a beautiful photo of PRESIDENT Obama, and was a much needed release of what I was feeling at the time.

I couldn't miss him more. The sight of him brings me peace.

Ancient Orange is the most wretched human being that ever defiled the office. Liberty weeps.

11. We miss him every day, every hour since he left office.


We had a clue what we were getting but no one expected a traitor who would betray us in plain sight. tRump is many, many things but if he lives to be a thousand years old, he will never be a tenth of the man President Obama was/is. It may be the thing that sticks in his craw most and the best part? There is not a damn thing he can do about it. He will always and forever be known as the absolute, rock bottom of human kind. Worst President Ever.

Long live Barack Obama! Jimmy Carter gets a huzzah, too! Both are great gentlemen.

16. Good Presidents

In my lifetime, I have never lived through a President like DJT. We've had some I liked better than others, of course, even Reps, but never one that first of all stole the presidency and is ignorant, self serving, liar, nasty and mean and a con man. He says terrible things about really good people and good things about really bad people and praises people that are just like him!!! President Obama was a class act and I am so proud he was our president for 8 years, wish he still was.

18. BINGO!


tRump in his short time in office has sullied the title he illegitimately stole. I have serious doubts that the office and Country can be repaired in what remains of my life.

19. One of my greatest fears

is that I will pass away while tRump is still president, and that this will remain with me into eternity without an antidote to wash away his stench. I can only hope that when I go to the great beyond, I won't be frozen in this disgusting time.

13. You could have just left it at the title

It would have been just as poignant.

20. We once had a President...

...to whom I could point and tell my son (who was 8 when the President took office) and say that THIS is what being a real man is like.

RESIST!

24. Don't make me cry.

Everyday I think about when we had a real President.
I was appalled and depressed, shocked and disgusted even before the Russian stooge was put into America's White House
