    I mentioned after the election that one of the best things was that I would no longer have to listen to Obama bashing. Far as I can tell, all previous presidents cash in on their old office and notoriety with books and speaking tours.

    Be careful what you wish for. As awful as Trump has been, he still hasn't lied the country into a war that killed hundreds of thousands of innocent people, turned millions into refugees, and destabilized an entire global region while wasting enough money to rebuild every road and bridge in the entire US.

    Of course, it's early days.

    wow naked corruption is ok and to point it out is "bashing". Wow, just wow.

    I understand extreme cynicism about our politicians and political system (yes they mostly suck badly), but still ... it's really not ok for them to be so corrupt.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    I'm not really sure who you are referring to about naked corruption and what events might have transpired to evoke the comment. I'm more concerned about obstruction of justice and other present transgressions.

    Trump is an idiot.....but to the deplorables.....a very useful idiot. I was offended by the deplorable comment during the campaign and so were many in the Rust Belt so if you want to look for a place to lay the blame.....put it right at the feet of Hillary Rodham Clinton. The condescending attitude toward Trump just makes them support him more. There is nothing he could do to lose that support. The fact that so many like minded folks have their panties in a wad over his unfitness for the office, is confirmation of the reason he was elected in the first place. To just get under your hackles. For the most part Trumpeters think, “It sucks to be you.” Don’t kill the messenger, please.

    He goes around giving speeches to Wall Street collecting hundreds of thousands a pop for the very industries he was supposed to regulate (wall street, healthcare etc.) and that he instead bailed out. If he just retired quietly to a life of golf, one could say "let Obama go already". Or if he choose purely to be an elder spokesperson or whatever for the Dem party one may or may not agree with his influence (I think it's kind of good it turns out he doesn't really care about politics, as it let's younger factions there have a chance.), but at least it's a natural role. But to just go around cashing in by the very industries he made decisions in favor of. On the sleaze scale I'd have to give it a 10.

    I don't focus on Obama that much really, yea he's really not president, so if Trump passes horrible policies that Obama somewhat supported too well then it's good to know history but not all that interesting otherwise. But despite that periodically news like this slips through, that just reminds one, ugh that guy has no shame.

    I admit my memory isnít the best, mostly because I chose to forget many things but I donít think I ever disclosed who I voted for. For the record, I rooted for Rand Paul. But I did not have the chance to vote for him. And I am fond of you as well.
