  2. No, I think they're deliberately choosing the most destructive person possible for each job, the candidate whose intentions are counter to the office's duties, to destroy and erase as much of what Obama's done as they can, no matter what. I genuinely believe that's their single goal.

    A Secretary of Education who hates public education and wants to transform it into a voucher-based private Christian school system? A Secretary of the Treasury who's a Goldman-Sachs exec? An EPA Secretary who is currently suing the EPA?

  3. Not just what Obama's done, but in a quest to basically dismantle the government except the military. They are throwing shoes into the system. Most Republicans believe all the governing should be done at the state level.

  5. Of course not! He loves America, and wants to make it great again!

    He just hates its constitution, its traditions, and 99% of its population.
