    As democracy is perfected, the office of the president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On that great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the white house will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.

    Mencken also wrote: "I admit freely enough that, by careful breeding, supervision of environment and education, extending over many generations, it might be possible to make an appreciable improvement in the stock of the American Negro, for example, but I must maintain that this enterprise would be a ridiculous waste of energy, for there is a high-caste white stock ready at hand, and it is inconceivable that the Negro stock, however carefully it might be nurtured, could ever even remotely approach it. The educated Negro of today is a failure, not because he meets insuperable difficulties in life, but because he is a Negro. He is, in brief, a low-caste man, to the manner born, and he will remain inert and inefficient until fifty generations of him have lived in civilization. And even then, the superior white race will be fifty generations ahead of him."

    A people deserve the leaders they elect.

    With hindsight it is clear that after electing GWB twice in a row that Obama was merely a postive outlier on a rapidly decending trend.

    After reading dozens of quotes I can only conclude that the man was decidedly unAmerican as well.

    I'll go on record here at RHP that another idiot will be elected as the next President.

    I know it's a long shot. 😛

    Me? I got Trump elected?

    Let me guess, it had nothing to do with Hillary.

    Thanks for that.

    You're not an American divegeester. Your opinion is of no consequence.
