Not a scam, to my way of thinking.
Perhaps an attempt to bamboozle, hornswoggle, or hoodwink. But not scam. No one's getting cheated out of anything.
And I LIKE that the president is intelligent and calculating. Just wish civil rights were more important to him.
Bamboozle, hornswoggle, or hoodwink. Ok. I can live with that.
I question how intelligent he is. Not smart enough to admit mistakes. Not smart enough to know how to speak without a prompter (he of the "57 states"). Not smart enough to even tell a good lie.
What he is really good at is fooling enough people to vote for him.
