You know Obama's not running again, right?
Thing is, what about Trump has made you think that he's going to show good judgement? He says stupid fucking things, and
he's never demonstrated any particular ability to master complex issues (or even care). How are we going to expect him to know if the US should intervene the next time a nascent terrorist organization pops up in a destabilized country (ie, ISIS taking over Fallujah)? Every President has some mistakes to point at after eight years in office, so pointing at Obama's doesn't really excuse Trump's very real capacity to make catastrophic errors based on what we've seen of him.
