Ok, it’s time to start REALLY listening to what is being said and WHO is saying it. You should have learned from the great Obama blunder that if you don’t listen to what is actually being said, and not just what you want to hear, you are gonna end up in a world of hurt coming from who you put into office with the expectation that they are gonna do what you think is good for restoring constitutional freedom, but really have a different agenda. You can’t just follow every candidate over the cliff who speaks fluent “Yankee Doodle.” Even though Trump started out saying some pretty powerfully intoxicating things to conservatives, he’s started to change his tune and most conservatives are ignoring some pretty important warning signs. Here are just a few…
Presidential candidate Donald Trump, who is polling near the top of the Republican field, has had surprisingly complimentary things to say about Barack Obama in the past.
BuzzFeed reports that the former reality star praised Obama in his 2009 book, Think Like a Champion. Trump wrote that he felt what Obama “has done is amazing” in becoming the first African American president, adding, “the fact that he accomplished what he has—in one year and against great odds—is truly phenomenal.”
Trump said he believed Obama had “the mark of a strong leader” with an understanding of the economy. He wrote:
As of October of 2008, the U.S. government reported a $237 billion deficit. The good news is that Obama seems to be well aware of the situation. His comments have led me to believe that he understands how the economy works on a comprehensive level. He has also surrounded himself with very competent people, and that’s the mark of a strong leader. I have confidence he will do his best, and we have someone who is serious about resolving the problems we have and will be facing in the future.
In April of 2009, Trump was still giving Obama high marks. He said during an interview with CNN’s Larry King that he believed “the world looks at us differently than they used to” because of Obama.
The businessman noted he did not agree with everything Obama was doing, but said, “I do agree with what they’re doing with the banks” and other aspects of the financial crisis.
Trump also gave his assessment of Barack Obama the man, stating, “Well, I think he’s sort of a guy that just has a wonderful personality, a good speaker, somebody that people trust. And I also think that the comparison with his predecessor is so different — it’s so huge that it really has made a great impact on people.”
Overall, “I think he’s doing a really good job… He’s totally a champion,” Trump told King.
The Republican presidential candidate has changed his tune now. In his speech announcing his candidacy last month, Trump stated:
You know, when President Obama was elected, I said, “Well, the one thing, I think he’ll do well, I think he’ll be a great cheerleader for the country. I think he’d be a great spirit.”

He was vibrant. He was young. I really thought that he would be a great cheerleader.
He’s not a leader. That’s true. You’re right about that.
But he wasn’t a cheerleader. He’s actually a negative force. He’s been a negative force. He wasn’t a cheerleader; he was the opposite.
