Why Won’t Barack Obama Go Away?

American Thinker

By Rich Logis

 

Why do those who criticize Donald Trump for not being a “traditional” president fawn over President Obama not being a “traditional” post-presidential citizen?

I would say Michelle and Barack Obama are back in the news, but they’ve never left the news since the 22nd Amendment mercifully exiled them from the Oval Office last year.  When President Clinton took the oath of office in 1992, President George H.W. Bush went away.  When President George W. Bush assumed power in 2000, President Clinton went away (until the prospect of being the first gentleman came a-knockin’).  When President Obama placed his hand on President Lincoln’s Bible in 2008, President Bush went away.

When President Trump made his miraculous win constitutionally official last year, President Obama went away, back to Chicago, to administer the death and destruction left in the wake of 30,000 consecutive days of Democrat rule over the Windy City.

Just kidding: Obama moved into a $5-million D.C. mansion – but only after the wall surrounding the 8,000-square-foot mansion was completely erected.  Oh, and Obama’s former senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett, moved in with the Obamas, which is just bizarrely weird.  It’s like House of Cards meets Three’s Company; rumor has it that Val makes a mean Belgian waffle with an Iranian secret touch.

 

Obama the Hollywood star

The Obamas are in talks with Netflix to produce their own show, and let’s face it: that deal is as good as done.  I can already envision the episodes: “Louis Farrakhan: The Misunderstood Bigot,” “How to Community Organize and Eat Deep Dish Pizza at the Same Time,” “The Raúl Castro Interview, Part 2 (Raul Still Thinks America Sucks, and Who Am I to Disagree?).”

One episode I suspect won’t be produced is “Why I Will Remain the de Facto President for the Resistance for the Next Decade.”

There are very few political and policy decisions of Obama’s for which I give two thumbs up, but I will always marvel at how sophisticated his 2008 campaign was.  Obama knew with 100% certainty that he would be elected president after systematically delimbing the Clinton Industrial Complex.  But he didn’t want to merely defeat Arizona senator John McCain; he wanted to render him the Mondale of the Republican Party.  Obama didn’t win 49 states, but he won an election with a record turnout of percentage of registered voters.  A Christ-Gandhi ticket would have lost to Obama.

Obama was on nothing but offense, and his campaign understood well the nuances of the little things about campaigning.  His brain trust split data into micros of microdata – what people ate, when they went to bed and woke up, their voting history (or lack thereof)…seemingly everything.

Activist president, activist post-presidential citizen

Obama was our nation’s first overt activist president.  In fairness, all presidents are activists to some extent, but Obama perfected the art form.  Remember: his political upbringing was as an acolyte of  community organizer Saul Alinsky, rallying roach-smoking, Che Guevera t-shirt-wearing, vanilla chai green tea latte with organic unfiltered raw goat milk with turbinado sugar-drinking occupants of $4,000 monthly gentrified studio apartments while remonstrating against income inequality and too low taxes for wealthy white people (even though the vast majority of wealthy whites vote Democrat).

So are we to believe that Obama will not continue to carry his activist past into his post-presidential life?  Of course not.  Obama has always been smarter than most Democrat politicians; unlike Clinton, whose own husband doesn’t like her, Obama and the DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex) have had quite the love affair.  The love is so strong that it’s a borderline extramarital affair.

Obama knows that the Democrats have no one on deck to challenge President Trump in 2020, and we’ll likely have Trump and Mike Pence as president for 12-16 years.  (Republicans: Don’t you dare stay home on Election Day – red states no longer exist, and we cannot afford to lose the House of Representatives.)  Knowing that Trump and Pence will likely occupy the White House for nearly two decades, Obama has comfortably assumed the role of the face of the “resistance” and will have carte blanche from the DMIC and sycophantic Democrat voters to undermine President Trump ad infinitum.  Never mind the mountain of scandals accumulated in Obama’s 96 months as president, including an alleged spying scandal that’s shaping up to be an all-time Mother of All.

Democrats don’t care, just as they disdain our Constitution and Electoral College.  Democrats believe they have the right to be right, and they will beat you into submitting to their will.  No, Donald Trump isn’t a traditional president, but the American people don’t mind, just so long as President Trump keeps his promises (and kept promises he has).  Too bad Tessio Republicans in Congress can’t seem to support the president for consecutive days.

The “fundamental transformation”

Barack Obama promised a “fundamental transformation” when he took office in 2008, and he was true to his word.  When googly-eyed, Ludovico-induced Obamaites cheered “four more years!” at his farewell speech, Obama smilingly reminded them that our Constitution prohibits that.  Prior presidents always bid adieu to the nation from the Oval Office, but Obama broke tradition and, predictably, was praised by the oh, so devout DMIC.  Hell, even Canadians wanted another Obama term.  Does that qualify as collusion?

When Obama was elected, I did wonder what could be: a president who would take a flamethrower to the final remnants of the myth that America is still a racist nation; a president who would finally pick apart the self-victimization celebrity status culture the way he picked apart his opponents in elections; and a president who, as the West’s first black president, would never apologize for being the coach of the championship team.

But though I wondered what could be, I knew, deep down, that it wouldn’t be.  An activist never changes his act.

Obama couldn’t be president for life.  But he’ll never let you forget him.  No matter where you turn, in whatever direction, he’ll be there.

As Invasion Escalates, Obama Cuts Border Patrol

Moonbattery

For progressives like Obama, growing government is an end in itself. But Obama has actually shrunk the Leviathan in some areas. Those are the rare areas in which the federal government has legitimate responsibilities, like national defense:

[T]he Department of Homeland Security … is budgeting for 300 fewer [Border Patrol] agents in 2017 than they did for this fiscal year.

It isn’t because the agents are no longer needed. On the contrary, they are needed more than ever.

Since September, Border Patrol agents have been catching more unaccompanied children and families at the border.

“One, we have people turning themselves in at unprecedented rates. Then we have the people that are always coming in illegally,” National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 Vice President Chris Cabrera said. “Then we have the drug flow that’s coming north and the money that’s going south and guns that are going south. And to cut jobs at a time like this is a recipe for disaster.”

But one person’s disaster is another person’s glorious fundamental transformation of America.

Meanwhile, federal revenues are higher than ever before, and the crippling debt continues to skyrocket due to massive spending in areas unrelated to the duties of the federal government or even its constitutionally permissible purview.

Obama Revealed His True Intentions for Our Constitution Today

Obama1

Independent Sentinel

Obama spoke of our inspiring Constitution Tuesday and said it is “a work in progress” that “can evolve for the good of all Americans…” It was only meant to inspire according to him. That’s what makes America great according to him.

“‘She said the joy of being an American is the joy of freedom and opportunity. We’ve been handed a work in progress, one that can evolve for the good of all Americans. I couldn’t have said it better. That is what makes America great. Not just the words on these founding documents, as precious and valuable as they are, but the progress they’ve inspired,’” Obama said.

This is what Obama thinks is his job – to “evolve” our Constitution into his far-left document that ignores the rule of law in favor of some feel-good piece of paper. He’s turning the Constitution into a socialist manifesto.

This is the same reason he calls our Republic a constitutional democracy. It’s why Michelle Obama calls it a constitutional democracy. Words matter!

Family Security Matters

Barack Hussein Obama is fond of telling Americans, “that’s not who we are,” when admonishing us about not agreeing with his policies.

It is Obama and his fellow travelers, who are, in fact, “not who we are.”

Choosing national suicide

Family Security Matters

As Winston Churchill noted in his indictment of appeasement of Nazi Germany in the 1930s, “there is a great danger in refusing to believe things you do not like.”

Barack Hussein Obama is succeeding in his fundamental transformation; that is, dismantling the United States as a capitalist republic, based on Judeo-Christian democratic principles.

Obama is dangerous as a President because his ideologies, Marxism and sympathy for Islam, drive him to pursue policies that run counter to the national interest, the well-being of the American people and, quite frankly, the survival of the country. His mendacity is compounded by his arrogance and narcissism that prevent him from accepting responsibility and learning from his mistakes. He is not on our side.

People ask – How can this be happening to our country? What can we do to stop it?

Obama’s war on white America is here

Flopping Aces

I told you so.

Part of Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America is to not only marginalize the white race, but now it’s clear that he means to make whitey pay.

I wrote about it here

The Tea Party is a threat to national security, the GOP is a threat, the NRA is a threat, returning vets are a threat. And every one of them is racist. Just ask Eric Holder and Barack Obama. Thus it is critical to be sure they lose their voices in the electoral process in this country. Barack Obama will have then made good on his promise to fundamentally change the US.

and here.

Tom Perez is a liar. His view is that whites are not entitled to the same Constitutional protections as other races. His goals are to import millions of latinos, share your prosperity with them and marginalize the white race in this country. This is all part of the Obama Fundamental Transformation of the United States of America.

Obama is flooding the country with illegal aliens and blocking their deportation. Since 9-11, Muslim immigration has exploded. The FBI can’t keep up. Illegals are killing Americans routinely and we can’t get rid of them.

Now Obama plots to make the lives of Caucasians in America miserable.

The President is ‘The Other’

For those who drank the hope and change Kool-Aid, here’s some bad news: the ‘fundamental transformation of America’ is in full swing and as they used to say in show biz, “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!”

That’s because the last 18 months of this corrupt narcissist’s rule will make the first six-and-a-half years look like a high school civics lesson in good governance. I have always found it ironic that the son of a Kenyan Muslim Marxist and disaffected white liberal woman should grow up to become President of the United States. What’s more, the way in which he arrived at the presidency is shall we say, unusual.

Here’s a guy who was elected on the basis of being a good-looking black man who could speak well. We’ve never read anything that he wrote during his law school years, don’t know what his grades were, in fact, that entire chapter of his life is securely under seal. Why would that be?

And for those of us who believed that Constitutional Government entailed a series of checks and balances between the three branches of government, the Obama years have permanently disabused us of that notion.
