Trump is the "Chosen One". Right. Chosen by Vladimir Putin.

I've been to 8 presidential libraries. All had their faults, but all were presidents who knew they only temporarily were in that office and tried to their best. I didn't agree with all anyone of them did but recognize they tried to the best for the citizens of the USA.

Trump doesn't understand the concept.
the left called Bush a war criminal Hitler for 8 years.

now you pretend like you think he was a pretty swell guy.

who is a phony?

When Bush left his office, his poll numbers were horrible, Trump's are much higher right now.

What Obama and CLinton supported went against my own interests.

What liberals mean is that Trump should be the president of liberals even though liberals didn't vote for him.

Liberals believe they should retain power even when they lose elections.
A politician should absolutely serve his or her entire constituency. Of course no politician will support every single thing I think is right or that serves my interests above others. It simply isn't possible. But a politicians should serve all those he or she has been elected to represent, not just those that voted for him or her.

I disagreeds with a lot of what Bush did. I disagreed with a lot that Obama did. And so on back through the presidents to when I was born. You can serve the entire country without agreeing with every individual within it. Saying that a president should only serve those who voted for him or her is dangerous and divisive.

This line from the column in that link is great:

Not only is Obama not a deity who controls the earthly waters, he's not a good forecaster, either.

Conservatives referred to Obama as 'The One' because of his grandiose statements like this and his groupie fans. Obama is aloof and humorless so he wasn't joking. Trump's bragging and overstating things is supposed to be humorous.

I think Trump serves the nation better than your socialist Democrats would.

Again, he was elected by conservatives, not socialists. He was not elected to advocate and implement your socialist ideals. Elections have consequences.

Leftwingers can't explain how their open border preference makes us a more prosperous and safer nation yet you act like what's best for this country is your policy.

And conservatives love to assume that the liberals want open borders, that’s Trump doing the thinking for you.
Again.

In other words, your assertion was hyperbole. Thanks for admitting it, although I don't think that was your intent.

No need to assume it, just look at who you guys vote for.

Your politicians have been calling Trump racist for trying to secure the border and build a wall.

I provided the quote that you said didn't exist and you predictably dismiss it.

You are Baghdad Bob.

Us guys? I think not. Trumps comments have been racist but no one REALLY wants fully open borders.
