Chill out!

Reader comment on item: What Rex Tillerson Thinks

Submitted by Elspeth R Hunt (Australia), Jan 8, 2017 at 02:31

To my fellow conservatives in the US-chill out! Stop being so touchy about the slightest criticism or doubt over the incoming president. A president is not supposed to be a king! You had a revolution to get rid of kings and queens, remember???? You are acting exactly the same way the left acted when king Obama first got into power. To use a religious term-its called idolatry.

Mr Pipes rightly presents possible flaws and problems with Trumps presidency. Trump may do some good. Only time will tell. If he is half decent, It won't be hard to do better than Obama. That is guaranteed. We have the opposite problem in Australia. We don't keep our leaders long enough for them to do any good or ill these days!
