    This President's hands are always full. I cannot recall over my past 50 years, a president with so much on his plate and constantly attacked, and criticized by a gang of clowns called "the opposition party". Its really difficult to combat stupidity.

    Nor have I Trace, out of 63 years. Well I guess I should at the least say 45 years, since I ONLY started voting and paying personal attention at 18! No previous US President, other than the ones they killed have ever been this beligerently obstructed and disrespected, dismissed as THE PRESIDENT even, sabatoged at every turn, verbally abused, treated with so much vitriol and insubordination, hate and BS from contituents, so-called co-workers and base! This President has put up with pure hell from everybody!
