I find trump and obama to be very similar, with the primary difference being that trump is vulgar, whereas obama is polished. Both made asinine promises and were/are beloved by those that don’t bother thinking about whether the promises work.
[…]our guy [50+ low-middle-class majority voter-ETat] isn’t a fool. He’s been watching for 40 years as slick, eloquent people promise him whatever it is they can convince him he wants. He was there when lbj promised “guns and butter”, and a “great society”, and delivered dependency and crime instead. He was there when carter promised to curb unemployment and inflation, and delivered stagflation. He was there when nixon said “trust me”, when bush said “read my lips”, when W talked about “wmds”, and when obama talked about “change”. He has seen too many slick smooth talkers promising unicorn farts to him to trust another, and he’s under attack right out loud by people that say, in plain language that his day is over. … except that he never had a day, he worked hard for everything he ever got.
