Once, We Had A President
The contrast with Trump makes me weep. As does Barack Obama's description of people with courage, compared to the Congressional Rs who, out of weakness, out of greed, out of simple nastiness, voted for Trumpcare. Likewise his point that it takes no courage to help those not in need of it; but, especially nowadays, it takes major political courage to help those in need.
Barack seems a lot more optimistic than I am. I guess I should defer to his judgment. I would if I could.
