If Obama had said this, conservatives would have gone ballistic 5

Donald Trump is everything I expected him to be as president.

Is that good or bad? Yes.

He’s following through on many of his campaign promises. Good. And he’s as mercurial as ever. Bad. I had hoped he be a little more presidential, but that is evidently not in the cards for Mr. Trump.

He was interviewed by Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly and said something that about made me come out of my chair. O’Reilly labeled Vladimir Putin “a killer.” Trump quickly sprung to Putin’s address:

“We’ve got a lot of killers. What do you think? Our country’s so innocent?”

In my wildest imagination, dear readers, I can’t imagine even a leftist like Barack Obama ever saying something that denigrating about the United States of America. He took plenty of shots at our country on his ‘apology tour’ in his first term, making it clear that he didn’t consider America all that exceptional.

But Donald Trump’s put-down of American exceptionalism was Obama on steroids. Wall Street Journal columnist, Bret Stephens, characterized Trump’s remarks this way:

“This time, Mr. Trump didn’t apologize for America. He indicted it. He did so in language unprecedented for any sitting or former president. He did it in a manner guaranteed, and perhaps calculated, to vindicate every hard-left slander of “Amerika.” If you are the sort who believes the CIA assassinated JFK, masterminded the crack-cocaine epidemic, and deliberately lied us into the war in Iraq—conspiracy theories on a moral par with the way the Putin regime behaves in actual fact—then this president is for you.”

Be very careful with this president, conservatives.

  1. Let’s not forget Obama’s equally outrageous slam to Christianity when he suggested we get off our “high-horse” when it comes to judging Islam as a religion of violence. No, Trump will have a long way to go catch up with Obama.

  2. The president isnt lying. I can tell when politicians are lying to me…their lips are moving. American drones have killed a lot of kids at weddings. It’s planned so the bad guy will be at a location & time. If its needed to stop terrorism, why hadn’t the previous white house told us what’s happening and it’s just the price of the battle? If not, why’s it happening? His point is we can’t pretend to be morally superior and do these things and wonder why jihadis want to come here and blow us up. We will never convince them that they started it on 9-11. They feel we started it w/ our policies before it. Since they have felt justified from the start, we cant expect them to be ok w/ the whole drone thing. We’re either guilty of something akin to war crimes against humanity or it’s the only way to deal the radical Islamist. I’ve had pretty talk from politicians forever. It’s gotten us terrorism on the loose w/o much being done. Obama was polite & presidential. We’re worse off for his presidency. Leftists are the problem..not Trump.
