The New Year

I'm looking forward to it, I really am.  This year promises to be a great one, for a variety of reasons. personal and public, and I'm looking forward to the challenge and frustration that this new year is sure to bring.

Our President, of course, couldn't help himself.  He had to insert is meaningless opinion into the conversation.  As Hot Air catalogs.
“As I prepare to take on the even more important role of citizen, know that I will be there with you every step of the way to ensure that this country forever strives to live up to the incredible promise of our founding — that all of us are created equal, and all of us deserve every chance to live out our dreams,” Obama said.
Oh, please, Barry.  Your biggest challenge will be transitioning from the most powerful office in the world, to just another fellow who is totally irrelevant.  It will take historians several decades to judge your legacy, but I suspect you'll be known as the most divisive president in modern history, the guy who destroyed the Democratic Party, the guy who set racial progress back by a decade, and the guy who turned American prestige across the world into a laughing-stock.

If Barry Obama really wants t help us realize our dreams, the best he can do is go home, shut up, and leave us alone as we try to rebuild what he tried to destroy.   The adults are in charge now, and it's time that you reverted to insignificance.

Learn a trade, perhaps.  Waiting tables is a good place to start.  You might make a good maitre D in a few years..  But, as a statesman, you suck.  Just fade into the background while we Make America Great Again.   Please, Mr. President, just go away.

Amen, but sadly, I don't think he has the common sense to actually do that... Dammit... Best wishes for 2017 to you and yours Paw!

Hi PawPaw,
You express it very well, but I fear that Obama won't gracefully go away. He wants to continue destroying America, as part of his community organizing background.


The Obama superpac "Obama For America" was morphed into "Organizing For Action" (OFA) after his final election. OFA has been training up an army of community organizers to create chaos across the land. It was this army that helped grow BlackLIvesMatter and the accompanying claims of racism at college campuses across the country. BO does not view BLM as a blemish on his Presidency, he considers them as a positive group helping to create an atmosphere for the change he wants. Knowing he helped create this ugliness during his own tenure, imagine what he will encourage when he is not is charge.
OFA

Racial progress back by a decade? You judge him more kindly than I do.

What do you think the odds of him avoiding the spotlight once out of office to allow his successor a free hand? Or even limit himself to the Jimmy Carter like volunteer work coupled with occasional posturing that was (largely)ignored by the press? Nope, I can't see it either . . . the only thing that might limit him is that it might interfere with his golf game.

18 more days to go.
