    No, he doesn't care about diminishing the office of the Presidency. Again, he's too arrogant for that. It's all about him. No chance that he will fade into the sunset like Reagan & GWB did, and to some degree, GHWB too.
    Do you think we will see Michelle rise from the ashes of his presidency?

    Cherry picking only in the sense that the right track/wrong track in your quote appeared to be attributed to Obama only (you didn't mention the whole question or that it included congress). If that wasn't your intent intentionally I withdraw the cherry picking comment.

    I agree its not good. It hasn't been good for going on 14 years now which includes the presidents and congresses along with that. I'm not on the "blame Bush" waggon, there is PLENTY of blame to go around for both the Reps and Dems.

    Both sides have done it. When Bush was in office, many on the right were blaming Clinton or that the Left wasn't patriotically support Bush in Iraq. With Obama it is the same thing with the left, they blamed Bush for many things even 6 years into it.

    However, what I still find most damaging is that people STILL don't realize that the Dem/Reps have let us down and they continue to support them.
    You know I will give you a lot of respect. You are probably one of the most unbiased posters I've encountered on DP. You will give both sides s*** when they deserve it.

    Before Obama became President Michelle was an outspoken strong woman and for the past 6 years she has been made to keep her mouth shut, which is out of character for her.

    I think after he is out she is going to explode onto the scene in one way or another.

    But according to the right that shouldn't be a problem if race is not a factor anymore right ????

    Recent history would say that a Republican will win. Just over the last 100 years, a party hanging on after 8 years only happened twice if you throw out the FDR years as an aberration. Hoover and Bush I are the only ones to pull that off. Nixon couldn't do it in 1960, not Humphrey in '68, Ford in '76, Gore in '00 or McCain in '08.

And he's carried that over to Obama's Presidency, refusing to make any comments on the job Obama is doing.

    I can't guarantee it, but I'm hopeful the next President in 2017 will be in the Bush mold, not the Clinton/Obama mold.
    Maybe not the man himself, but I'm fairly certain that his apologists on this board will.

    I also know now how the Libs felt at the end of the Bush era. I can't wait to see Obama go.
    Bush left in shame and ruins at 22%, it wasn't just "libs" that couldn't wait to see his departure, much like many of Obama's original base support have grown weary with him. Exiting the Oval Office as Clinton did in the 60's isn't an easy task. Technological advances have made it more difficult for the government to keep dirty deeds secret and Americans are increasingly wary. Also there is exhaustion from holding ones nose so to speak, and voting for the lesser of two evils. Many on the right felt there vote for Romney was just that, as did many on the left with Obama.

    So Dr. Carson has no chance then?

    Why would Obama's Presidency have any effect on black candidates going forward? Did Jimmy Carter ruin it for white guys?

    Well, that's what apologists do - it's in their job description.
