He's youthful, attractive to some and well spoken when prepared. He seems personable. So why do I feel a sense of foreboding whenever I see or hear this man?
My 87 year old mother jokingly refers to him as the Anti-Christ. Others have met him and shaken his hand and felt the same sense of something "wrong". I know it just chills me sometimes picturing this man at the helm of the most powerful corporate/government on the planet.
Something took a peek at us when he calmly and coldly remarked "You're likable enough". The unblinking story of his never having heard his preachers make hate filled statements about his country and race baiting gave us another look. His carefully worded condemnation of his grandmother and indeed all typical white people made me sigh instinctively. The soulless backstabbing eradication of all the competition during his early political outings while pretending regret at the process all stated clearly, calmly "above the fray". His personal associations with known terrorists and criminals all dismissed with the same innocence and coolness. His unreported desire to rid our country of an electocracy; his complete reversal on FISA; his denial of pandering to each and every group while asking us to disbelieve our lying eyes and ears, coolly maintaining his positions don't waver. Routinely taking credit for other's work without apology. His "I'll leave it to others to think about that" and in the next breath " but I would like to point out" as if that absolved him of playing dirty politics. There is something not real about him and even pointing out what I wrote above, I cannot put my finger on it. Things don't add up and at the level of power he seeks, that is frightening and gives me the chills.
Maybe it's nothing more than his breathtaking arrogance which writes itself on the chalkboard of my sensibilities with a hair raising screech. I need to read more. Maybe history will have the answer.
