Yeah, let's talk about Obama. He hid his birth certificate, and then blamed Trump for wanting proof that he was eligible to be president.
one of the more pathetic attempts to have a go at Obama. Birfers are birfers I guess. Gee, why do the rest of the world and most of the US see Deplorables as dumbfucks. I can't think of a reason why...hhmmm..

Not credit for - he does that all the time, but RESPONSIBILITY for something?

Ronald Reagan:
Ronald Reagan’s acceptance of responsibility in the Iran-Contra Affair in April 1987 when Trump was about to turn 40. Reagan took to the airwaves and revealed his role in the deal that used Nicaragua as the conduit for U.S. arms that were traded for Iranian-held hostages, something Reagan previously had denied. “There are reasons why it happened, but no excuses,” Reagan said. “It was a mistake. I undertook the original Iran initiative in order to develop relations with those who might assume leadership in a post-Khomeini government.” As with Kennedy, the public who genuinely liked Reagan accepted his apology and a potential impeachment was averted. His popularity also returned, scoring him a 64% approval by the time he left office two years later.

John F Kennedy:
John Kennedy’s acceptance of his role in the failed Bay of Pigs Invasion in April 1961 when Donald was nearly 15. The CIA-run operation, begun under the Eisenhower Administration, resulted in the capture of over 1,200 insurgents and ultimately the strengthening of the nascent Castro regime. Kennedy blamed himself for approving the operation and in public held himself solely accountable. "There's an old saying that victory has a hundred fathers and defeat is an orphan ... Further statements, detailed discussions, are not to conceal responsibility because I'm the responsible officer of the Government.” The public liked what they saw from the young president and gave him a pass. Later Kennedy joked that if he had known how his poll numbers would have soared – into the 80s – he might have called for the invasion to occur sooner.

Barak Obama:
President Obama, by his own admission, failed badly during the rollout of Obamacare in fall 2013, more grievously due to the failures of HealthCare.gov. But he took responsibility and fixed it, launching an unprecedented number of outside programmers and tech specialists to overhaul the site and get it in working order. "I take full responsibility for making sure it gets fixed ASAP,” Obama said at the time. And so he did.

Here are a few other things Obama took responsibility for while in office:

No, he said he looked like a special Olympic kid bowling. Making fun of those poor kids. He is an asshole.
You said 'a' special Olympic kid. Made it sound like a specific kid.
Meh, we've all made those jokes. Should he have made it? Nope.
Tell you what though!!!! He apologised for it. And took responsibility. Unlike somebody else....

Don't know. Don't care. He apologised. Don't care if he did it off is own accord, was told to by Michelle, or chief of staff waved a stick at him. He apologised.

Trump is a narcissistic glory hunter whose ego could not possibly ever consider being wrong.

Please tell me I haven't landed in another forum controlled by the fringes. I did medical school and practiced psychiatry for a while in Europe, I thought I might bring some sanity to the Hydroxychloroquine thread. It's been closed. Hydroxychloroquine is NOT a political subject, it is a scientific subject. It is a medical subject, It is a pharmacology subject. It is most decidedly not a political subject.

This thread appears to be yet one more about Trump being evil incarnate. I didn't vote for him; then again, I didn't vote for Obama, either. I decided against both because their decision-making processes were compromised. Both made decisions based on personal or tribal short-term advantage. I don't bother with most policy differences in presidential elections, because the most important issues of their presidency is never on the radar screen on election day. What were Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump's positions in November 2016 on COVID-19? Exactly.

When he raised his right hand with his left hand on the Bible on January 20, 2017, he accepted responsibility, for better or for worse. So far he's done a great job.
That is straight up crazy.

All you do on the Bible is swear oath of office (all Trump does is use it as a prop), it has nothing to do with taking responsibility for poor decisions.

This is a political forum. In politics, logic and sense are always debated depending on one's political POV. Injecting logic and common sense into any political discussion is subject to attack. Much of the MSM puts a political spin on what they call 'journalism.' No matter how Hydroxychloroquine helps, if Trump touts it, political hacks will try to lie about it. Remember, they already tried blaming Trump for some woman and her husband who took aquarium cleaner because hydroxychoroquine was one of the ingredients. BTW only her husband died.........No one questioned that.

Stop. You are making a total fool of yourself if you want to take up a position that Trump made no bad descisions.

Still want me to give you one or two? Ok -Trump made a really bad descision to become a coronovirus-denier-in-chief for a month. That was after he made a bunch of bad descisions that led to his impeachment and trial.

The closest thing to the subject would be Hillary saying that Obamacare should be fixed, and Trump saying it should be scrapped. I don't believe they ever debated or spoke on a subject about a pandemic.

What the fuck does him accepting or not accepting something have to do with what you-and-I were talking about???

Do you actually have a brain of your own or is that something that has to be checked out when you become a Trump fan?

John Kennedy’s acceptance of his role in the failed Bay of Pigs Invasion in April 1961 when Donald was nearly 15. The CIA-run operation, begun under the Eisenhower Administration, resulted in the capture of over 1,200 insurgents and ultimately the strengthening of the nascent Castro regime. Kennedy blamed himself for approving the operation and in public held himself solely accountable. "There's an old saying that victory has a hundred fathers and defeat is an orphan ... Further statements, detailed discussions, are not to conceal responsibility because I'm the responsible officer of the Government.” The public liked what they saw from the young president and gave him a pass. Later Kennedy joked that if he had known how his poll numbers would have soared – into the 80s – he might have called for the invasion to occur sooner.

Barak Obama:
President Obama, by his own admission, failed badly during the rollout of Obamacare in fall 2013, more grievously due to the failures of HealthCare.gov. But he took responsibility and fixed it, launching an unprecedented number of outside programmers and tech specialists to overhaul the site and get it in working order. "I take full responsibility for making sure it gets fixed ASAP,” Obama said at the time. And so he did.

Here are a few other things Obama took responsibility for while in office:

Can anyone provide some examples?
When he raised his right hand with his left hand on the Bible on January 20, 2017, he accepted responsibility, for better or for worse. So far he's done a great job.
That is straight up crazy.

All you do on the Bible is swear oath of office (all Trump does is use it as a prop), it has nothing to do with taking responsibility for poor decisions.
Which poor decisions?
Stop. You are making a total fool of yourself if you want to take up a position that Trump made no bad descisions.

Want me to give you relavant one or two? Ok -Trump made a really bad descision to become a coronovirus-denier-in-chief for a month. That was after he made a bunch of bad descisions that led to his impeachment and trial.
Have you expressed your concern to @DonaldTrump on Twitter?
.....wtf?
He will accept your tweets. It's a social media program just like USMB. Have at it.
What the fuck does him accepting or not accepting something have to do with what you-and-I were talking about???

Do you actually have a brain of your own or is that something that has to be checked out when you become a Trump fan?
I can't solve the problem. Ask Trump.
