RE: He's Not MY President
History will note that, like 2001-2008, the office was for all practical purposes vacant.

And you've made your point much more clearly here......

Saying "He's not MY President" makes you sound just like the stupid bigots that refused to accept President Obama, simply due to his middle name and skin coloration......

It just seems to me a really dumb thing to go about spouting.

Not true.

It was occupied.

By a drunken, coke sniffing party boy who couldn't show up for his Air Reserve drills....

I wish that were the case. This "administration" isn't a zero though, it's a huge negative. When they get done with education and the environment and consumer protection and everything else they have targeted this country will need decades to recover.

The office is vacant, leaving the Vandals to pillage as they wish.

But, you see, it's sarcasm, and should be seen as that. It seemed extremely obvious to me and I understood exactly what others meant when they said/wrote it.

You keep omitting the fact that Obama was intelligent whereas Trump is a fucking idiot and a fucking embarrassment.

It comes from the Greek Polis. The city where they first had their semi democracy.

Aww, bud, did you think I didn't actually know the root of the word?

The arachnid is spelled "ticks", too.

It's. A. Joke. Tongue

RE: He's Not MY President
Not until the Obama presidency did I ever hear the phrase, “not my president”. On the flip side I never heard the phrase, “my president” either.

It has always been the president, or the president of the United States, the Commander in Chief, always alluding to the collective. Now it sounds more like everyone used to have a personal relationship with the president, sort of like with Jeebus, your personal lord and savior. Rolleyes

I blame hero worship and the belief that the president can magically fix everything.
