Obamas Were Real Thing Versus Fake Cardboard Cutouts and Reality TV

Trumps and Obamas on Inauguration day 2017

This picture of the incoming and outgoing president on Inauguration day 2017 tells you everything you need to know about Trump and Obama. One saw himself as President of the people and the other sees himself unfortunately as a dictator and enforcer of his mandate. Both have many things in common but only Obama has maintained the childlike enthusiasm of a child: Allen L Roland, PhD

 “There are differences between the two presidents, of course. Obama got to the White House despite the lingering racism in American life and politics. Trump stoked that racism and gleefully rode it into Washington.” Andrew Rosenthal, New York Times

Andrew Rosenthal, New York Times,  spells out what Trump and Obama have in common in an Opinion piece on March 28th.

 Excerpt: “Obama was too confident in his own powers of persuasion. Trump’s belief in his powers of persuasion is so inflated that it amounts to narcissism.

Obama was distrusted by American corporate leaders. Trump is one of them.

Obama came to Washington to govern. Trump came to preen.

Obama had a specific agenda with actual legislative proposals. Trump has tweets.

Obama showed a detailed understanding of policy issues. He could talk about them with authority and was thoroughly steeped in history. Trump doesn’t seem to know the first thing about much of anything, past or present.

“Nobody knew health care could be so complicated,” he famously said as people who did know that were hard at work on Capitol Hill coming up with a proposal to replace Obamacare that failed spectacularly last week and left Trump looking like a fool (to everyone except himself).

But as new presidents, Obama and Trump share that debilitating belief in their own public relations. Obama got over it eventually. Will Trump?”

See Times article ~

 I miss the realness and humanness of the Obama’s and I’m sure many other Americans feel the same thing particularly as we witness the ongoing fabrications emerging from the Trump / Bannon Administration.

We all had many expectations about Barack Obama and many of those remain unfulfilled but we must all agree that there was nothing fake about the humanness of the Obama’s ~ this eight minute video illustrates many of the lessons they taught us by just being and sharing  their true selves versus our current reality TV Trump administration.

Must see 8 minute you tube video ~

There is nothing as precious as the human touch or the genuine smile of a child as well as leaders who recognize this ~ thank you Barack and Michelle.

  1. I am sick of hearing about Obama. Obama was a terrible president. Arguably the worst of all time. Second only to Woodrow Wilson, who basically caused all the problems that followed his presidency with a single stroke of his pen, when he gave the Federal Reserve soul authority over the issuance of US currency. After criticizing the illegal and murderous wars of the Bush regime during his campaign, Obama took these illegal and murderous wars to a whole new level. In just 8 years, he managed to match the combined debt of all US presidents who came before him. After running a campaign that praised transparency, Obama charged whistle blowers with the espionage act, insuring they would never get a fair trial. He even threw them in Guantanamo bay, which he promised to close, but didn’t. His administration turned what used to be the most prosperous nation on the African continent, which enjoyed privileges that Americans could only dream of, into a chaotic hotbed of terrorists. His administration is responsible for the chaos in Syria by insisting that the legitimate, duly elected Assad “must go”, and then sponsoring terrorists to do their dirty work under the guise of “fighting terrorism”. Oh, “but he was a good speaker” his ignorant dupes suggest. Sure, he was a good liar, if the listener is completely ignorant of the subjects he speaks of. Obama is fit for a hearing in front of an international war crimes tribunal.

    • Not to mention the mess Obama left the new administration by inventing and propagating the ongoing conspiracy theory of Russian intervention in US elections. This scuttled any hopes for the new administration to normalize relations with Russia. Such normalization of relations with Russia is something all sane people in the world were hoping for. Instead, what we have now is the worst relations that have been seen since the Cold War. Now, with NATO troops amassing along Russia’s borders, based on unsubstantiated and reckless conspiracy theories propagated by Obama and regurgitated perpetually by the MSM, we now move closer to the brink of an all out war which nobody can win. That’s some legacy mr Obama left for the world to deal with. Hopefully, in the end, history will remember Obama as the failure he truly was.

  2. Dear Comrade khalid. you really need to get your head checked. all your nonsense about the origin of problems in mid-east is really about in fighting between sunni and shia. your hands are full of blood of your own brotherhood. go back and worship your own fake god. you dumb idiot.

  3. dear comrade khalid, you need to get your head checked too. both you and roland praise the fake gods and do not know the slight of truth. how sunni and shia are fighting against brothers is totally beyond me. maybe you should call it family feud. with family like that who needs enemy. go pray to your sunni god that all shia will die.

    • “both you and roland praise the fake gods and do not know the slight of truth.”

      “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

      And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.”

    • “how sunni and shia are fighting against brothers is totally beyond me.”

      That’s your own fault. Oded Yinon’s plan for “Eretz Israel” explains how Israel desires to facilitate sectarian divide amongst their Arab neighbours, to make their land easier to subjugate. Divided and fractured smaller states are much easier to conquer than a united, monolithic state. This is engineered chaos and the USG, Israel’s golden calf, has produced documents expressing its willingness to support this goal as well. Instead of making an effort to compromise, or to assimilate into their host community, Israel expects the whole world to adjust to and accept their criminal behaviour. That’s the true cause of what is erroneously referred to as “anti-semitism”. That’s why Jews have been run out of more than 100 different countries over the years. Is it the 99.9% of the world who needs to change their views to accept Israel, or is it Israel, the .01% who needs to change their ways, to get along with the rest of the world. The answer is obvious.

  4. There is definitely a disparity in the racial undertones of Obama verses Trump. A black president walked across the Selma bridge in Alabama to celebrate the anniversary. Obama gave a decent speech at the African Union. The moment for me that will define his history was when the 106 year old woman came to the White House to meet the Obama’s. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=likheQDJXlw Watch: 106-year-old woman’s priceless reaction to meeting the Obamas.

  5. The most objective, unbiased comparison I can make is this:
    Trump wears his personal flaws like a garish necktie, that everyone can see.
    Obama concealed his flaws beneath a carefully constructed veil of charm and sincerity.

  6. Whatever Obama is he is not Presidetial material. Owned by Chicago’s machine, selected to be the 1st black POTUS, before he ran for the Senate. This breaker of every promise he made to American’s s allowed to exit the office 40 x’s wealthier than when he came in. It’s all a charade.

  7. rolland you need to get your head checked. they probably replace half of your brain with alien AI, so you always get confused with the commie craps.
