Donald Trump and President Obama

President Obama has more grace, dignity and class than Donald Trump will ever possess.

This man will NEVER get my vote.

First, read this post: http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/04/27/trump-takes-credit-for-release-of-obamas-long-form-birth-certificate/

Then view this video:

Now, my thoughts:

The utter audacity it took to not only stake his claim in this mess, but to be proud of it and then state he still is not satisfied… it boggles the mind. You don’t have to be an African-America to feel anger, embarrassment, and hurt. You just have to be an AMERICAN who can see beyond the Republican “Birthers” idiotic pettiness and understand the price that has been paid in the civil rights movement for us to get to the point in time where Barack Obama would not just be considered a candidate for but actually become the President of the United States.
Donald Trump may be proud of himself, and he may say he still isn’t content until the document is analyzed to his satisfaction, and the Republicans may all declare him as some kind of hero for their cause, which has been more about avoiding doing their jobs than any noble historic achievement on the behalf of the American people, but even if he were running completely unopposed for President, not only would I not vote for him, but it would be the final straw and I would move to Canada or Mexico, or anywhere else on this earth and give up my citizenship for good.
I am not proud of what Donald Trump has done. I am not proud of the Republican Party that agreed with him and backed our President into a corner he felt he had no other way out of. I am not proud of myself, because I like millions of other Americans, just sat by and let it happen… though I am not sure what I could have done personally to prevent it.
No, I’m not proud. None of us should be. Not even Donald Trump. But, then again, he has an oversized ego that constantly needs to be fed and put in the spotlight. I pray to God he doesn’t actually run for President. He’s really NOT that great a businessman (he’s filed for bankruptcy how many times?) and he’s a pretty sorry excuse for a human being.

May God bless the United States and may He bless our President, who has handled this completely unnecessary bit of nastiness with far more grace, dignity and class than Mr. Trump will ever possess.
