He was able to get away with one of the most blatantly.... unfocused president campaign messages in american history. "change". Mind you I voted for obama. I like obama. But people took one look at him, saw he's black, and added change to the equation and voted for him because they figured the black president had to be vastly different from all the other white presidents we've had. how can you have any more "change" than having a black president? Even people who I would not consider "racist" still voted for him on the thought that he had to be different because he was in fact black..
When in reality he's more conservative than Clinton will ever be. He's no different than the last 3 democrat presidents that we'e had. He's more conservative on drugs in american then the war on drugs president was lol. He's spent more on the war on drugs every year that he's been in office.
The irony being that, a lot of conservatives will vote for trump not realizing that in a lot of ways, he's more liberal, a lot more liberal than Obama could ever dream of different. Trump, rather you like him or don't like you , you have to agree on this.. if he is elected president,, some real shit will be changed. For better or for worse.
I'm not really big on politics until election time but i would watch MSNBC/CNN nightly if trump was elected president becuase it would be anything but boring and stuff will actually be happening.
One of the biggest criticism I have for Obama is something that's under the radar media coverage wise, and that's his "war" on journalists and whistleblowers. He puts on this facade of being a democrat and somewhat progressive, but behind the scenes he's been going after journalists and their sources via the federal courts. He's not very keen on a more transparent government, which is something that was popular with the previous republican admin.
