In the midst of a visit to Africa, including Kenya, where Republican front-runner Donald Trump has insisted Obama was born, the president seems to have been liberated by events and circumstances to speak his true mind.Circumstances stem from the Republican presidential race, in which some candidates appear to be vying to out-Trump Trump.In sum, Obama doesn't think much of Trump – or of Trump's Republican critics. Neither does he think much of Republican leaders and wannabe presidents, whose apocalyptic rhetoric has reduced political debate to a crypto-Armageddon-ish clash of cliches.My guess is that Obama would go with the second choice."Ridiculous" and "sad" were the words Obama chose to describe recent comments by Republican presidential contenders and others. Pointedly, he singled out former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton.Contrary to Cruz's remark, Obama is the terrorist-killer in chief.Cotton's reference to Pontius Pilate was simply spectacular.
