21. I want to make sure I understand what you're saying.
Did you just say that President Obama, when he was candidate Obama, was not aware of the "30 years of Republican rule" and was caught off guard by what he faced after taking office?

Are you saying that he was unaware that the previous (mis)administration left behind a shit-load of land mines?

Are you saying he raised something like $700million in campaign funds to get into an office for which he was unprepared?

Are you saying he didn't know that racism would be a huge issue in this country were he to become the President?

Are you saying that he wasn't ready to take all this on when he was elected to office?

Are you really saying he was that ignorant/naive or, pick an adjective?

Please tell me this isn't how you "defend" the President of the United States.
