|Problem is, Obama is most definitely not a nice guy. He's just learned over the course of his lifetime how to put on a non-threatening happy face that masks the real man underneath. He's a ruthless, angry, vindictive man out to push his agenda, and it's worked for him. |
About six months ago, I brought up one of Obama's policies (don't recall which one) to a girlfriend who doesn't much follow politics or current events, and I told her about what I perceived to be the toxic long-term repercussions of that policy.
Her response? 'You can't really hold that against him. He may be getting bad advice. I'm sure he always does what he thinks is best for the country.'
I never know where to begin to respond to such an ignorant (in terms of knowledge of the subject) comment.
And ... I suppose this is a personal fault ... I cannot look at a friend in the same way again, once she has exhibited such cluelessness, because, in many ways, she is every bit as much a part of what is causing the demise of America's foundations as those who are purposefully choreographing it.
