It’s clear that President Obama is bitter. After eight years of holding the highest office in the land, he was unable to turn America into Europe.
His radical, progressive, social justice policies only worked in turning most Americans against him. It was his terrible plan for America that motivated so many people to vote for Trump, giving him an electoral landslide against Hillary Clinton.
Yet now that his time in office is almost over and he is forced to hand over the reins to a bitter rival, he is digging in his heels and refusing to budge.
From Washington Examiner:
When Obama expected, and most polls indicated, that Hillary Clinton was going to win the White House, the president suggested that he looked forward to a quiet retirement. But now he says his plans have changed. The unmistakable suggestion is that Obama claims he needs to stay active to guard the nation against Trump’s predations.
“I promise you that next year Michelle and I are going to be right there with you, and the clouds are going to start parting and the sun is going to come back out…”
Oh, NOW you’re actually going to do something for America? Didn’t you have eight years in office, with the power to pass legislation and make real change for the country? You failed then, Barry. What makes you think that once you have zero power, you can actually do anything?
Don’t expect Obama to make good on his word. He’s been making promises for eight years and doing nothing to back them up. Once he leaves office, he will have even less power to make change or sway the public.
He will have no influence in Washington, because he will not be able to work with Congress or have voting power. He will have no influence with the media; they will be too busy covering Trump and deciding how to distort his presidency.
So what will he have left? His supporters, largely African Americans, won’t have anything to do with him. He won’t be president anymore, so he won’t have any right to speak into their lives or make decisions that will affect them one way or another.
Sorry, Obama, you had your chance to change America. And you did, for the worst. Now it’s time to retire, move back to Hawaii, and let the grownups fix your mistakes.
