The Bushes, by all accounts, were extremely magnanimous and generous with the Obamas. I always figured they would be, because while George appears to be a dimwit, he was raised by people who place a high premium on comporting oneself properly in public. I also think that Laura Bush has always come across very well and if I'm not mistaken had universally high approval ratings. The Bush daughters themselves partied in college, this was their "sin", that they drank underage like all the rest of us, but their father got in bed with the crazy evangelicals so it kind of all didn't pass the smell test. They certainly seem like they are great young women.

Unlike the tackiness of the entire Trump family, who just stink of that nouveau riche lack of class. Tiffany may well be the only one who escapes it in the end, she lived with her mother in California and clearly has nothing to do with Donald, which will probably be a great blessing to her in the long run.

Yet they've conned a minority of people into thinking that they understand their struggle, that they are this caring Christian family; it just proves how dangerous the info bubble can be.

i don't think anyone -- including evangelicals, or even the most fervent beetle-eating Trump supporters -- think he's remotely Christian or lives his life in a remotely Christ-like way.

which tells us a lot about these people.

No, I see it every day. It blows my mind, but I've seen comments like "now we'll have a real Christian back in the White House". The mindwarp of these people is far beyond our grasp.

This is a good summary. Whenever I see the Trumps, I think of the Queen of Versailles documentary.

I don't think BVS is far off.

I remember seeing somebody Tweet a photo of the Duggars (that crazy ass family with 19 children on TLC) hosting a Trump victory party the night of the election for their like-minded friends.

But that's just because it's reality TV in common, not religious values right?

President Obama has deployed 3,000 troops in Poland near the Russian border. Russia also has troops in the area.

Should President Obama inform the American public on this or try to resolve it before twelve noon Friday?

Any thoughts?

The Pentagon made a statement about it. Is that not informing the public?

US sends troops to Germany, message to Putin - CNNPolitics.com

Excuse me, that's not the talking point that Iron Horse is blindly repeating.

My thought is that you should actually do the homework yourself to check whether the information has been made public before asking whether it's been made public in a question that strongly insinuates shady government secrecy. This was covered (albeit briefly) by pretty much all major news sources, so it's not exactly a secret.

If it wasn't said on Breitbart it doesn't count.

This is the world we live in now, this is how Trump got elected.

President Obama said in his final press conference he will “STEP IN" IF TRUMP "SILENCES DISSENT." Does he mean like how his IRS silenced dissent by denying tax status to Tea Party and pro-Israel groups, terrorizing their leaders with audits based on their politics alone, harrassing them with demands for U-hauls worth of paperwork and ultimately denying them their right to legally organize?

Very inappropriate for "the Obama Thread," the Obama Admin's record

And remember James Rosen, journalist under govt surveillance?
https://www.yahoo.com/news/blogs/tic...99.html?ref=gs

And the State Dept video editing of public briefings?
James Rosen talks about State Department video scandal - Business Insider

Most transparent administration in modern times.

Deflect, because we all know you won't be able to defend.
