    A subjective view on the past and present US Presidents

    I'm not an American citizen but I am interested.
    I recently watched this video of ex President Obama.
    I couldn't avoid comparing his humour, demeanor and presence to the present holder of the position.
    Regardless of their political positions, ideology or demeanor I know who I'd prefer to be stranded on a desert island with.
    Or sit in a bar for a few hours with, or rely upon to help me out of a difficult situation.

    Cry havoc and let loose the dogs of war.

    That's a purely subjective preference regarding American presidents.

    Not an objective view on American politics at all.

    No, it's an objective preference of people.
    Nothing to do with politics.
    Something of which I'm pretty ambivalent.

    Apologies. I must have misread the thread title.

    Fair comment, I should have avoided the word "politics" and used the word "people".

    If a kind, sympathetic and friendly Mod could change it I'd be obliged.
    Thank you.

    From my world it is objective as hell. Unfortunately we have Boon Mee's and Repeaters who would disagree as they live in another world.

    So its not objective but correct....

    Obama has a sense of humor, I'll give him that.
    Not sure about trusting him though.. I mean he is still a politician and all that (was going to say a black politician, but that would be racist).

    Do you actually think Glenda, or do you just do the Trumpesque simple innate mindless response.

    It's hard to believe you actually think before you post, or are you just drunk?

    Please tell me I'm wrong.

    I do hope so.
    I wouldn't want to think you've completely lost it, as it so seems to be the case.\
    Fingers crossed you'll end up all right.

    Got a link to an interesting thread you've started lately? Perhaps an example would be in order.

    It is a bit strange that the only POTUS I can name in recent history that was vaguely Presidential, was a Blackman according to most Americans.
