Another thread got me thinking about our opinions of the presidents. Everything seems to be either totally right or left and completely visceral in nature.

Now of course some things will invoke a highly emotional response but not everything.

This emotional response syndrome started with bush junior in my opinion. Then is snowballed with obama and now trump.

But I want to know, is any president all bad?
Doesnt every president do some good?
What has trump done that's bad and good in your opinion?
This is not about debating, it's about opinions.
Thus it's not in the mud pit.

Tell us what you hate about a president.
Then tell us what he did right.

I'll start with the last two presidents.

Obama was in my opinion not qualified to be president and that lack of practical experience showed in his running of the economy.

What I did like was the way he carried himself in the public eye. A happy family man that served without sexual scandals. He generally felt like a good guy that you would like to drink a beer with.

Now trump.
I want to break his Twitter fingers.
The wall is a fricken stupid idea and will be a total waste of money. Stop acting like a jackass!

But he has the economy booming and I love his America first policy. I also like how he pisses off the leaders of foreign countries by telling it like it is.


Now those are my opinions and I'm not here to change anyone's mind or debate the validity of those opinions. Questions to clarify are fine though.

Tell us what you hate about a president, but you gotta tell us what you like too.

And I dont want to hear trump has a hot wife.

What say you?

The economy last quarter grew at the same rate as Obamas in 2014,(trump said, no other president had accomplished his rate of growth, another lie also Clinton achieved the same #s REPEATEDLY during his time in office) . Unemployment was double digits when Obama took office, when he left it was what around 5% or 6%. How do you possibly say that he did nothing but look like a family man.

I can easily back up everything I am saying, as I did on a thread a week or so ago. You do your homework

well first off, Trump has a hot wife. But other than that, he seems to really want to do things to help the country. And the things he's doing seem to be helping. I'm not sure about the trade tariffs, I am not smart enough to understand the bigger picture on that, so I'll have to wait and see in order to form an opinion.

I cringe at the way he isn't presidential, he ins't PC, and he doesn't do things how I would like to see. Obama did act presidential and had all the support largely because of that. (IMHO) I didn't like his decimation of our health insurance because it cost me money and made it difficult to get to the doctor based on my income. And his policies and decisions kept our economy stagnant.

I'd like to see Trump do at least one big thing that would solidify his mark on things, just to make the left angry that he didn't fail. I wasn't even political before this election, but the treatment given by the left and the pompous arrogant attitude drove me to dislike their side of things and embrace the right, just to spite them. I realize that's wrong, but it's factually accurate to me. You aren't better than me because you don like Trump. And you aren't smarter because you went to four year college and not the two I did.

the economy is up, unemployment is down, trump tells it like it is....that was the good I could think of....

when I think of leadership qualities, trump -the man, essentially the president- doesn't fit the traditional leader ideal.

what with the bias, paying for "it" , the bankruptcies , the shady school that as closed, not showing his tax returns, dodging the draft, odd statements about his daughter, "locker room talks", struggles with the English language, egotism, bullying, trash talking to disabled people etc...
