The contrast between the 44th and 45th presidents in a single day could not have been more cinematic now.
How, you ask? Well, former US president Barack Obama on Monday published an essay, an article, per se.
It was about the entire police violence and vandalism wherein he advised his fellow Americans to restore peace.
On the other hand, the current president Donald Trump kept on being cranky about the authorities and urged them to use military force to dominate the protesters.
Comparing these two presidents would be a matter of utter foolishness now.
They don’t even stand on the same level. And no, I’m not the slightest bit exaggerating.
If you condemn Trump, it’s because you see what wreckage he has created and how wilful he is of maintaining that calamity.
While if you condemn Obama, you are literally asking coronavirus to vanish on its own.
Although, I’d very much accept the part that Obama did increase my expectations back in 2008 and ‘t quite meet it.
He had pledged to stay within the public financing system for the general election but then took a step back and relied on private contributions.
Nonetheless, when Barack Obama had taken up office, his full attention was drawn to the economic stimulus package that would purportedly support “shovel-ready projects.”
However, after the results didn’t reap as much benefit as he had initially perceived, he mildly agreed that there’s pretty much nothing like shovel-ready projects.
He had also promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow every American to keep the doctors and insurance plans that they cherished.
Again, it didn’t quite work out that way. And there were a few other fault-finding areas in his reign.
But Obama was hardly the first politician to over-promise and under-deliver. His policies did not amount to a revolution, but they were not a horror show, either.
He was just as fine, even better than some of the Presidents I’ve known.
Now, looking at the chaos that reigns in America, I’d choose Obama over Trump in a nanosecond.
