I, like so many others, have been writing on the presidential term so far of Mr. Trump and I have been accused of despising the man and that made me take back and immerse myself in thought.
As hard as it is for many of his supporters to believe not everybody wants him to fail as president. I mean I was a critic of Bubba Clinton, GW Bush and Obama…..so I am doing nothing that I have had done to other presidents.
Do I truly despise the man?
There are very few people I actually despise but there are many that I dislike. I admit that I have used words that were not very flattering to the man to describe his administration but it was not from despise that they flowed more like in retaliation for something some mental midget has written or said.
The truth is in the beginning I was not pleased that Trump had won the election but I would have been equally disappointed if Clinton had won….so safe to say that no matter who won the 2016 election I was not going to be happy.
But despised the man….I think not…..I truly was hoping that he would make good on his campaign promises in trade and foreign policy…..so I wished him well as I have done for ever president since I began analyzing politics.
The problem is that he has nothing but the campaign going for him. That is evident if you watch he is still campaigning and only visits regions that voted for him.
He could be going around the country thumping his chest about the markets rise….the low unemployment…..but instead he taunts Clinton and her loss and keeps bringing up the “Russian fake story” to the point that rational people are starting to think….”me thinks he dost protest too much”.
Then there are the Tweets. Tweeting is a great thing but it is NO way to govern or run a White House.
However there is one area where he gets my approval….he truly wants to end Afghanistan but the generals want more troops….generals always want more troops…..if he can figure this aspect of his foreign policy out then there is the possibility of my better feeling about his presidency.
So the question remains…..do I despise the president?
I will admit that what began as a dislike has slowly become a despise for I do not see how he is “Making America Great Again”. He spends most of his time reliving the election win, which was a good win but it is beyond time to move on to the act of governing.
So I guess despise can be said to be accurate….but it is not permanent.
A reset would go a long way to reverse this trend for me.
This person shows no respect for the people of this country and he expects my respect to be shown him…..then he is delusional.
So I guess despise will have to do for now….but there is always tomorrow.
