NOT VERY PRESIDENTIAL TO WEIGH IN ON CANDIDATES FOR POTUS

President Barack Obama surprised me this week, weighing in on Donald Trump’s candidacy and other GOP candidates without mentioning their names.

I think this creates more division, and more verbal warfare.

I understand Obama’s need to say something.

However, I also see that GOPers are now quoting Cabinet members as using words such as “hate Donald Trump” or “Marco Rubio – are you kidding”

The bag of tricks available in this arena is huge – there is no need for the President of the United States to lower him or herself to realpolitik levels.

I hope the President – who I admire without reserve – will argue that point with whomever is advising him on this issue.
