I had high hopes for President Obama when he was first elected. I am a conservative democrat in that I believe in fiscal responsibility, operating on a balanced budget cause that’s reality for most of us. There are no easy answers on social justice issues like immigration and others, and the ‘Trumpers’ may make matters worse. I like Barack Obama the man and feel certain he would be a cool guy to have a couple of brews with and shoot the breeze about basketball, or other common topics of interest. As a president and a leader I have been disappointed in his performance. However, I thought the ceremony where he gave VP Joe Biden the award was a classy thing to do. I hope he continues that trend in the years to come and the incoming administration learns to show more class and less ass.
