    I was watching Obama give a speech the other day. It was after I had listened to Devin Nunes read the transcript of Trump's first call to Zelensky, where Trump sounded like an adolescent boy calling up a girl and not knowing what to say.

    When Obama gives a speech, he is thoughtful and insightful. As he talks, his words appeal to the intellect, inspire introspection.

    Trump, on the other hand speaks like a thug. In his speeches his words appeal to emotions, much as a comedian appeals to emotions. It is just another indication of the validity of recent brain studies that have shown that amoung strong conservatives, they process incoming information through the emotional part of the brain whereas strong liberals process incoming information in a cerebral part of the brain.


    Nonetheless, there is one characteristic that is quite profound, the stark difference between Obama and Trump's intelligence. I'm sure Obama has at least a 20 point advantage over Trump's intelligence quotient.

    Then there is the matter of manners and morals, of which Obama's character is unassailable, while Trump is quite crude and dishonest.

    Obama heavily depends on the teleprompter, Trump connects with americans when there is no teleprompter.

    You folks forgot what a moron Obama is without a teleprompter. If you heard him speak it was with lots of preparation. Not sure why'd even want to bring up that failure Obama at all. Everything Obama touched turned to ****...

    This is the same faulty logic that people used to incentivize people who vote for Clinton over Trump, and we all knew how that turned out. It doesn't really matter if Obama is articulate when it speaks if nothing he says is truthful. Voters have decided that it no longer matters it doesn't matter how polite you are if nothing you say is genuine.

    Wow, do the leftists know how to fawn over a politician or what? Will they ever learn that politics isn't about personality and polish, but about political direction?

    I guess I could be wrong... maybe it is the "tingle up the leg" that is really important?

    Trump speaks extemporaneously, Obama read a script written for him.

    I suppose you agreed with Obama not to help Ukranians defend themselves against the Russians.

    Good spin..

    Obama spoke softly but acted like a thug.

    Trump talks like a thug but does nothing.

    Trump connects with his base. The rest of us don't matter.

    If you just want to compare speeches -- Trump is entertaining while Obama will put you to sleep.

    True, by your own choosing. You chose to be the enemy of Trump and the people that elected him.

    Obama is an egotistical narcissist who hated the police, the military, and America in general. Trump is an egotistical narcissist who loves the police, the military, and America in general.

    of course trump connects with his base, the never-trumpers will never accept anything he has to say. as for whether the rest don't matter, that's just more regressive nonsense. a rising tide lifts all boats and that's just what he has attempted to do. black americans voted overwhelmingly against him, but their employment numbers are at historic highs. hispanic americans were told he was determined to eradicate them from the american landscape, but their wealth potential has increased as well. despite a media that is determined to paint this administration in the worst possible light, consumer and business confidence reached highs not seen in decades after trump's election and have only lowered after several years of ever increasing anti-trump propaganda. real tax payers, regardless of their political affiliation, saw a substantial increase in their post-tax wealth and only the progressive insistence on governmental waste caused our debt to increase. were trump to be given another four years and the ability to eliminate some of that waste we could see that debt steadily decreasing and america's ability to aid the rest of the world steadily increase. of course, the useful idiots will do everything in their power to see that this doesn't happen. three years of judiciary obstruction, manufactured scandal and faux outrage have shown us that the agents of progressivism will stop at nothing to hobble their opposition and convince the population that only by giving up freedom can americans find a positive future.

    About as quickly as I can come up with something that Trumptard did for America and Americans. Maybe you should base your political positions on more than cultish hero worship?

    And yet none of that is a good reason to remove an elected president from office.

    Plus, actual intelligence means very little for a president. Who were probably the two most intelligent presidents of the 20th century?

    Carter and Hoover.

    Case closed.

    You nailed it. But those who hate the man will still argue with you and want him removed from office. Some folks can't stand prosperity.

    Trump believes, as stated in the Declaration of Independence that, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
    A video produced for Obama's 2012 Democratic Convention gives us Obama's view, The government is the one thing we all belong to.

    [​IMG]

    As Lincoln implied, even after defeating the Democrat Plantation owners and freeing their slaves, Democrats would find a way to reinstitute the Plantations they lost in the Civil War. Sure enough, Democrats created urban plantations in every city in the country. Obama went a long way toward making us all slaves to the Government. Massa is now the Bureaucratic State and Massa's House is the DC area comprised of 4 of the 6 wealthiest counties in the country. Obama's legacy was the transformation of the US to the moral equivalent of a antebellum Democrat plantation.

    Obama has the quality needed to sell used cars.
