Did Obama EMBARRASS you?

That is the subject of this thread. But we have one poster that continues to try to make this thread about Trump...like he/she can change what Obama did.

Whats next? The Bush's?

The two men have totally different styles. I personally like the "cool" style of Obama. I'd love to attend a "beer summit" with him.

 

But, we are talking about the President of the United States and there is much more to consider than personality. The political ideology of each is a very big factor in any discussion of the two Presidents. 

 

First, I think that each is quite capable of being very effective with their differing styles. It is said that Obama had obstruction from the Republicans and that is true with regard to the Congress. The same is true for Trump. However, Trump also has to deal with the Dems mobs in the street creating obstructions.

 

So, to me, it is not a case of ability but ability to do what. Obama was leading us down the path of neoMarxism - more government control over more aspects of our lives, more control over the economy, and more dependency of the people on the government. As you well know, that is not my vision of America.

 

So, embarrassed? - no but happy that we are now going in a different direction.

 

Our politics are different, so personally, I'm more embarrassed by trump.  But, I must say, that was one heck`ava post, "rk".  Nice work.  Kudo worthy.....

Obama embarrassed not just me but our country when he went overseas on his apology tour.

Your probably in the minority and that's fine.....obviously.

I'm more "embarrassed" that some adults think putting a sheet over a statute is defacing it.  There'll be a LOT of "defaced" kids next month come halloween.....

I see things very differently than one of our forum members, who supports a President, who among other things, never admits he made a mistake, blames everyone else for his failures, and is a public bully. 

 

Unlike Trump, President Obama was a class act who garnered respect around the world. One of the reasons he was so respected was his ability to acknowledge that America, just like people, made numerous mistakes in the past and to say we're sorry about them. Unlike our other forum member, I see the ability to acknowledge your mistakes and apologize for them as a sign of strength. 

 

America's reputation around the world with the President he supports is at an all time low. Of course he won't admit that. One of many reasons our reputation is so low is Trump's inability to accept responsiblity and acknowledge his mistakes.

Yes I have a problem with it. America's done horrible things in the past which were never acknowledged by our leaders. Admitting to the world that we made mistakes and we're sorry about that is a sign of strength. As a result of those apologies, respect for America around the world went up during the Obama Administration.

President Barack Obama has finished the second leg of his international confession tour. In less than 100 days, he has apologized on three continents for what he views as the sins of America and his predecessors.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////


I do not want our President to apologize for what our country might have done wrong I want our President to emphasize what a great country we are and the great things we have done for other countries. Do you have a problem with that? .. if so why???

This is mind boggling and it has nothing to do with politics.

 

President Obama is a man of class, integrity, and intellect. He has the utmost respect for women and he's a fabulous role model for our children.

 

Trump is ignorant, a pathological liar, and a loud mouthed bully who insults everyone who disagrees with him. And he has no respect for women. Is this the kind of role model we want for our children?

 

And you're embarrassed by President Obama?
