Brock O'Bama waltzed in2 the Ovular Office with the dumb idea that he was gonna make common cause with "our friends across the aisle," & obstinately refused 2 see that viper's brood of racists and lackeys of the .1% for who they truly R,
& that lasted 6 yrs. Eventually he woke up.
Another aspect of the problem was narcissism. He really believed he could get that "grand bargain," which is 2 say, he beleived in himself way 2 much.
When dealing with the huge forces of history, it don't mean nothing who we are or even who he is.
The election of B Obama 2 that office was a huge, earth-shaking clusterschnazzle
-- I kind of knew that at the time. I don't know if he was aware of the full fury of the wild raspberries of rustics.
