    Future history

    Well one thing is certain: Trump will be more than a paragraph in future history books. However this crisis turns out, whether he is eventually seen as a hero or an idiot, he will be more famous than most presidents.

    Obama will be remembered as the first black president, not for anything he did. G.W.Bush will be remembered for the stupid Iraq war. Clinton for his cigars.

    But Trump will be gigantic, all because of the coronavirus.

    It is best that you are not writing our history books.

    It's okay with me if he shares the history books with the likes of John Wilkes Booth, Mark David Chapman, John Hinckley and Timothy McVeigh. He'll be compared for all eternity to Adolph Hitler, Benito Mussolini and Josef Mengele.

    Just something to keep in mind: the last four years has been a week-by-week royal rumble and nobody should figure be trying to figure out how it will end, even on January 19, 2021 with a Biden Presidency. For all we know, Donald could erupt during Joe's swearing in ceremony or just walk out right in the middle of the address.

    So just hold on to the "this is what people will remember Trump for" takes, because the man is trying really hard for us to not come away with anything resembling a coherent thought or memory other than it seeming like a bad acid trip.

    "To be sure, there is always a danger we will turn our opposition to deficiency into a rejection of those who bear it. [..] So just as the loathing of imperfection fuels the search for perfection, so the search for perfection makes imperfection all the more intolerable.-Leon Kass, President George W Bush's Head of Bioethics Commission, Lecture 2006

    FFS, concentrate on staying alive rather than deflecting for the precious.

    Obama as a president was more of a gimmick. He conducted beer summits, did cash for clunkers and a lot of other things that amounted to a big fat nothingburger. He was the president that had to do the walk of shame. America was not satisfied with his performance. It left us wanting more.
    Is it just me or is it getting crazier out there?

    Personally I felt greatly dissatisfied with Obama. Now I know how Michelle feels on a nightly basis.

    It wasn't Obama's fault. He didn't have a crisis.

    He did have a crisis and failed miserably. Just put a giant band-aid on the economy. The problems are resurfacing today.
