OK, that's the spleen vented. I would be genuinely interested in why you hold such an opinion, preferably supported by examples rather than more spleen. Done carefully you might even change my mind about him.

See OP.

I asked for examples. If you have some valid reason for you apparent total contempt of the man then it couldn't be to difficult to explain for a man of letters such as you. OTOH if you just can't cope with his personality and you allow that to override his policies and achievements, fine, but it would me more honest to say so.
