Trust is a fragile thing. And once broken, it’s hard to put the pieces back together. If you manage that, there are still likely to be a few tell-tale seams that betray the fact that the thing was once broken.
Why people trust politicians is a mystery. All politicians are human and because of that, they are sinful. Alongside that, some extra sinful politicians believe they can use their political power to thwart the rule of law and do many an evil thing.
Enter Barack Hussien Obama.
It must be a terrible blow to a politician’s ego to be the most powerful person in the world one minute, and then to fade into irrelevance once your successor is inaugurated. Such is the fate of Mr. Obama.
No doubt he’s trying to do things to maintain positive relevance, but it is his past that is finally catching up to him in a most negative way. And the American people have a few choice words to give to the former president.
From Conservative Tribune:
“According to Investor’s Business Daily, the poll taken in the last week of January by IBD/TIPP, showed Americans ‘overwhelmingly believe the Obama administration “improperly surveilled” Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, and a majority say they would like to see a special prosecutor appointed to look into possible misconduct by the FBI and Department of Justice in spying on Trump.'”
Welcome back to the public scene Mr. Obama. Too bad it’s because a majority believe you pulled some crooked stunts to try to help Hillary in her failed bid to succeed you. And your popularity is on the decline. Here’s the bad news, Mr. Obama.
“That means 55 percent — well more than half — believe Trump over the media on a major issue stemming from the campaign and the presidential transition period. Furthermore, when asked whether there should be a special prosecutor to ‘investigate whether the FBI and the Department of Justice improperly surveilled the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election,’ 54 percent said yes.”
Did Mr. Obama already have a penchant for corruption? Or did he just hang out with the wrong friends, Hillary being number one?
After all, no one in his or her right mind would get chummy with Hillary if one’s reputation were a concern.
The Tribune draws this conclusion:
“If anything, this poll proves that Obama’s liberal legacy is ending — only a year after his administration did.
“The American people are finally starting to wake up and do their own research — and the truth is coming out.”
We can hope this conclusion is true. It’s hard to find anything more satisfying politically then seeing goofy liberal ideas being treated with the derision they so richly deserve.
