OK, then take away most of the positives that you have said about Obama, if you want.
Why don't YOU tell ME what you think the President actually has the ability to strongly influence.
My answer? Really only whether we go to war or not. I do not like going to war. I think the last justifiable war the US was in, was WW2.
SO you tell me who I should like better, ...,
1.) Someone who says really smart things and is never putting his foot in his mouth with comment that could be construed as racist. BUT kept us in a war and got us into another...
2.) Someone who frequently says stupid things, some of which could be construed as racist... BUT has not gotten us into another war and has attempted to get us out of conflicts.
Now you likely recognize the first as Obama and the second as Trump...
But not so fast.... OH NO.... Obama has put his foot in his mouth multiple times and said and wrote things that could easily be construed as racist.
You tell me your measure and let's measure them up.
From Obama's book:
"There was something about her that made me wary, a little too sure of herself, maybe and white."
You see, where I am standing, it is not like we were given the best choices possible to choose from. WE were given VERY bad choices and had to decide. You seem to think that all who choose different from you are what??? WE are not choosing between whether you like Superman versus Batman. More like Lex Luther or Thanos.
