Pallin , Schmidt admits, was a terrible mistake on his part. He had been all for McCain, and it's ludicrous to imagine that choosing her was a purposeful move to knock McCain out of the running.


I didn't. He's just that dumb and corrupt. Supporting McCain is enough to warrant treason. That guy was vermin.

Of course it implies a blind devotion to a dictator or cult leader. Trump's followers rationalize away that he cheated in every one of his multiple marriages, and deny that he had cheated his employees, contractors, and business partners, and had carried on illicit business with organized crime and our Russian and Saudi enemies. Then there's the whole racism matter that many of his devotees find allows them to voice what they've been thinking all along.
This isn't coming from just angry Democrats, but also those Republicans like Steve Schmidt who know Trump has taken their party into the abyss.


Were there any democrat politicians who were against Obama during his time in office? Was Obama accused of being a dictator / cult leader and were his followers accused of worshipping him? I know the answer to those questions is yes.


Only Republicans tried to make Obama out to be a messianic cult leader/dictator, worshiped my millions of the misled. As it turns out, there was zero evidence to support that appraisal as most Americans knew. Whereas with Trump, Republican elected leaders criticize him privately, but would never dream of saying a word against him in public for fear of his fanatical base.


The point I'm trying to make is there were democrat politicians who were against Obama. And Obama was called a dictator / cult leader and that his supporters were brainwashed and worshiped him and all that.

How would you know that republican elected leaders criticize him privately? Do you ever put aside the fervor of your bias and emotions and view things logically?

If Republican elected leaders criticize him privately, but would never dream of saying a word against him in public for fear of his fanatical base, that means you would not know about it. Which means that's a rumor. There are a lot of rumors and suspicions and innuendo that a lot of democrats view as facts. The same as when republicans viewed rumors, suspicion and innuendo against Obama as facts.

But I know you will split hairs and say that's different.

Buttigieg advocates 1 year mandatory indentured servitude for everyone graduating high school. That's a no vote for me.

I'm not a fan of this guy. If he walks like a liberal, talks like a liberal & acts liberal, he's still looking down his nose at basically everybody. There are two ways of getting there, one is being a petulant trust fund baby, the other is called the ivy leagues.

Sound like you are echoing the tweets of the mentally disturbed POTUS who continues posting about Obama 2 years after getting into office.

He calling for young people to do community work to help with climate change and poverty. I am sure that would infuriate the selfish self centred and greedy who support the like minded in charge of the GOP who hate the idea of saving the planet or uplifting the poor.

Buttigeig just seems to be getting better and better! I only wish we had such a visionary a leader like Pete in Australia. Based on what I have read about him I think he's even better than Obama (although Barak did create a marine mark around Hawaii which was a big victory for conservationists).

That might have been a clever remark cyberdad, were it not for the fact that Obama vs Trump is being talked about here because of the article you posted by Noam Shpancer talking about Obama vs Trump.

If that's the case then reference the link + provide the context for your statement....

In any case Trump has a pathological obsession with trying to be more popular than Obama as it's tipping his narcissism out of equilibrium

I don't think the U.S. knows what to do with a real president anyway.

We have to wake up before smelling the coffee so to speak.

What is a real president? one who doesn't make up lies about improving the economy?
