  1. Tone deaf.

    Corralling a bunch of celebrities in gushing support of a Dem leader is part of what sank Mrs. Clinton.

    I liked the extrajudicial drone killings best.

  3. The coolest, most elegant extrajudicial presidential killings ever.

  4. The fact that so many Americans hate Obama so vociferously is why I think this country is pretty much screwed for another few generations. I can understand how liberals might be pissed at him for not being liberal enough, but when I hear from conservatives how he was a dictator, or how Obamacare is communism, or how he divided this country by promoting anti-white racism, I don't even know how to respond. My only reply is to ask for examples, and they invariably bring up stuff that was promoted on Fox News that maybe can be called opinion, but is really just willful misrepresentation, including stuff you find debunked on snopes.com or fact-check.org.

    Even if you hate his politics I don't see how you can hate the man, he seems genuinely honest and intelligent and sometimes even witty.

  5. To me (and speaking as a Canadian with a view clearly different than someone living in the US), Obama demonstrated, more than anything, that right now it seems like it doesn't matter WHO ends up in the position of President, they are, despite their best intentions, or who they are as a person, nearly guaranteed to be vilified by half the country. Talk about a thankless job at the moment!
