Time and again we see that Barack Obama just can’t help his ego.
What do you expect? He was the first black President of the United States. And while that may be a victory for Civil Rights, it seems to have given him a sense of importance that he simply has not earned.
After eight years of running this country into the ground, Obama seems hell-bent on forcing himself in the limelight.
Usually former presidents retreat to private life, helping found a library, maybe writing a book or two. They have to find contentment with the time they served the country and continue to help America is small, less public ways.
Yet Barry O’ still hungers for the attention. We’ve heard about his and Michelle’s major book deals and his new Obama Foundation. It’s obvious that Obama wants to continue to milk his popularity with liberals and black Americans, hoping that the fuel that propelled him into office will keep his lavish lifestyle going.
Now it seems he is extending that gravy train from the 50 state, to the entire world.
From Conservative Tribune:
According to the website of the German Protestant Kirchentag, a conference held by the Evangelical Church in Germany, the former president will be appearing May 25 with the German leader in a conversation called “Being Involved in Democracy: Taking on Responsibility Locally and Globally.”
“President Barack Obama’s attending the Kirchentag in Berlin, which will ring in the Reformation Summer, underlines the international character of our 500th anniversary celebrations,” Bishop Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bavaria, said in the article. (German monk Martin Luther launched the Protestant Reformation in 1517.)…
The meeting sounds harmless enough until you consider the fractious relationship between Merkel and the Trump administration, as well as the general turn away from the globalism espoused by Obama, both in the United States and abroad.
While most presidents have made public appearances after their presidency, few have couched them so nakedly in the rubric of campaigning. This is a man who comes across as wanting to extend his legacy by meddling in the affairs of the executive office long after he’s left.
There have been rumors that Obama would be getting involved in activist organizations in America, in sad efforts to resist Trump and the new administration. If that’s true, then he is showing a kind of desperation to protect his legacy that not even George W. Bush showed.
His appearance at Germany is another sign that he wants to milk the popularity he enjoyed overseas. Often it seemed like he was more popular in Europe than he was in America. Why not? It’s not as if his terrible policies would actually affect them.
As Europe continues to burn thanks to the left-wing, politically correct agenda of its governments, I find it fitting that Obama will show up to talk about being a “global citizen.” Whatever that means.
As if everyday people–concerned with the problems in their own neck of the woods–have a responsibility to issues on the other side of the planet.
But it’s that kind of empty rhetoric we’ve come to know from Obama. And it looks like he will continue to spew it for many years to come.
