Mr. Obama has been an incredibly ineffective leader. That’s not necessarily a negative. Actually, in once sense, it’s a sigh of relief. Given his agenda, we can be thankful that many of his plans miscarried or otherwise fizzled out. Could you imagine the state of the nation with 100 Obamacare-like programs going full bore? Perhaps the republic would have never been able to recover. So his bungling has had its positive benefits.
Donald Trump, on the other hand, is already getting results a month and a half before he takes office. And the results he’s getting don’t just benefit the rich, an accusation regularly leveled against conservatives by those on the left. He’s already on the job supporting the working men and women in this country.
Unlike Mr. Obama who appears to like sitting in the White House issuing decrees, “First, President-elect Donald Trump and soon to be, Vice-President Mike Pence made a trip to Pence’ home state of Indiana and personally intervened with Carrier. In one day, they convinced Carrier to keep over 1,000 jobs that had been destined for Mexico in Indiana. In addition, Carrier committed to spending $50 billion in Indiana and hiring more people to sell American jobs.”
Now this is real leadership. Something we’ve not seen in way too many years.
And the results at Carrier are not a fluke or a one-off effort, either. “Ford announced that a plant that they had expected to close in Kentucky was going to remain open and those jobs were going to stay in Kentucky and not go to Mexico.”
Thousands of middle-class Americans who work in businesses and factories in America can already be grateful to Mr. Trump that their paychecks will keep coming. And he has not even taken office yet. Wait until he is actually the president – you haven’t seen anything yet.
One more example of what we can expect with Trump in charge: “This week the Chief Executive Officer of IBM announced that, over the next four years, IBM would invest $1 billion on employee training and development and hire 25,000 American workers.”
Mr. Obama? Well, devoted, misguided liberal that he is, he believes that the real jobs in America – the ones that really count – are government jobs. And with the stroke of a pen, he can call those into existence so much easier than it is for Mr. Trump to work to get businesses to stay in America and expand.
Then again, like his liberal friends, Mr. Obama has a faulty understanding of economics. Without going into the details of his erroneous assumptions, we’ll just cite Margaret Thatcher’s dictum that socialism only works until you run out of other people’s money to spend.
But back to the story at hand. What is Mr. Obama’s reaction to Mr. Trump’s successes in helping the working men and women of America? Silence.
It’s probably for the best.
