THIS.

This is how I want to think about leaders. This is how I want leaders to act.

All I want is for this country to love their leaders, not treat them like sports ball teams. Hell I don't want them to act like sports ball teams. I want them to do the work of government.

I am so tired of the fighting... and I know... the fighting has just begun.

I guess that picture is better than the one trump had of donnie raping that woman or all the nude pictures of ivanka he has on his phone. To each their own.

Maybe I'm already old but telling me something happened 13 years ago like that's an unfathomable amount of time do it for me

That a--hole kid that stole the limelight from Rudi Giuliani is running for Governor of New York

You know what?  He looks a lot like I'm Eric.
 
2022-05-27 2:43:13 PM  
I aged the same as he did. That's freaky.
 
2022-05-27 2:43:44 PM  
I almost always have a wistful smile seeing Obama, remembering the competent (not perfect) leadership we had.

To think a large minority of our country hate him because he is black and then because of that we got TFG.

Damn their shriveled souls.
 
2022-05-27 2:44:38 PM  
Definitely needed. I'm not even American, and I miss that man.
 
2022-05-27 2:46:11 PM  
Thanks subby.

Things have changed.  mainly as a reaction to hope and change.
 
2022-05-27 2:47:01 PM  
There's not a single republican in office that can muster that level of humility and compassion. Biden can as well but half this site will still talk shiat because he's not exactly what they want
 
2022-05-27 2:47:57 PM  
What a loser!  When I talk to my President, I want to hear rambling diatribes about stolen elections, a list of celebrities who have been "not very nice" to him, and stories of big men who cry while thanking him.

I might be looking back with rose colored glasses, but I remember his debates with Romney and thinking "I may not like this Romney fella, but I don't doubt his ability to govern."

It was such a low bar to clear, and yet some leaders now can't even rise to that simple benchmark.
 
2022-05-27 2:48:36 PM  
Thanks, Subby! That was a smile-inducing touchstone, and a pleasant way to start the weekend.

Jacob Philadelphia was five years old when he visited the Oval Office and asked if his hair was like mine. That photo became one of our favorites - a reminder of the power of seeing yourself in your leaders

Sure.  Make it all about yourself, O (JK - I miss you soooo much)

Fark Headline of the Future:
LawnMower Boy FROM TFG is MINING space ROCKS

TFG Truthie TYME:
I remember that KID.  He said, SIRE.  YOU are the GREATEST PRESIDENT in the history OF time.  He wept.  HE said THANK YOU for BEING the GREATEST PRESIDENT all four terms!!!

I was too busy laughing at the old people calling themselves "teabaggers" to ever see the current situation materializing from it. I almost don't like looking at this Obama stuff because it's not our reality, we can't go back so it's more depressing than motivating. Short smile, long frown.

Know what I love about Obama's Twitter account?

You forget, sometimes, that he even has one.

Most users don't know when and how to share.  I don't care about your raisin and mashed potato pot pie, Karen, or your racial takes.  Live Laugh Love up your ass.

No.

Goddammit.


Srsly though, I miss that dude.
I look back on the days when we had decent human beings representing us with wistful nostalia.

No POTUS will ever be perfect, but at least we had a damned good person in there.  Plus, he broke a glass ceiling that can never be put back together, even though the likes of the GQP are trying as hard as they can.

My mother refuses to remove the faded Obama campaign bumper sticker from her car and every time she sees him she says, "That's my president."  He's inspired a lot of people.

From 2016 to 2020, I kept a running mental clock of, "# of days that Trump hasn't made a complete farking fool of himself."

I don't think that number ever got higher than 3.
 
2022-05-27 3:09:48 PM  
But the important thing is that he did graduate, and wasn't shot by an asshole with a gun.
 
2022-05-27 3:12:19 PM  
I'm sure it was a Republican scandal.

You can say all you want about Obama being a centrist in progressive disguise, but the dignity and intellectual honesty of the Obama years is something I miss daily.

This.

The vast majority or right-wing butthurt is because we are asking them to act like grown adults who are part of a civilization.

I'm rewatching "The Newsroom" and 3 episodes into the first season, they accurately predicted Mike Lee would help overthrow the government

POTUS or not, you have to have an incredible amount of faith and trust in someone to allow them to hold your twin infants like that. I barely let anyone hold any one of my kids when they were those ages. One mistimed squirm could spell tragedy.

And on his face I see a look of "I promise to work tirelessly to give you and your generation the best life they can have."

Mine are 21, 20, and 16
21 yo in a long term relationships
The two boys didn't take my advice not to stick your dick in crazy, and are really not in the mood to date right now,

So they don't hold anybody

For me it was always the moment I would wake up in the morning. I would think, "maybe it's all been just a bad dream". Then during the morning commute NPR would remind me that the circus was still in town.

Kids can see the joy on Obama's face compared to the "Why the f*** am I here?" look on the walking anus' face.

Should have said "Thank you" to Tax Boy for posting those pictures too, and not just a yuppers. I can't tell you how many times people posting those images on Fark helped me get through the last six years.

So thanks to Tax Boy all those unnamed posters and submiters too.
