Despite his current fulminations and prevarications, author Donald Trump didn’t stint on his admiration and respect for Barack Obama a scant two years ago. He began his book with fulsome praise of the president:
What he has done is amazing. The fact that he accomplished what he has—in one year and against great odds—is truly phenomenal…. Barack Obama proved that determination combined with opportunity and intelligence can make things happen—and in an exceptional way. … he understands how the economy works on a comprehensive level. He … has the mark of a strong leader.
Shifting political winds can wreak as much havoc as tornadoes in the South.
