Mr. Obama is clearly an incredibly arrogant man. Perhaps part of that is an attempt to compensate for his dismal leadership skills. His record as president is rather a vacant lot with the exception of some racial tensions, a mess in the Middle-East, illegal immigration, and a failed health care program. He did manage to double the national debt. Perhaps the only thing he’ll be remember for is being the first African-American to serve as president. That might be nice, but on its own, that’s not much of a legacy.
Desirous of radically changing the culture of America in the direction of the left, Mr. Obama surrounded himself with radical Marxists and leftist social agitators. Using funding from sources such as international menace George Soros, non-governmental organizations such as Black Lives Matters and MoveOn.org jumped on the Obama bandwagon. The idea was to pass on the baton to Hillary Clinton in the race to turn America into a third-world dystopia of left-wing ideologies. This grand excursion rammed into an iceberg named Donald Trump on election day. Mr. Obama has been humiliated and infuriated ever since.
After an apparent recovery from Hillary’s defeat at the hands of his nemesis, President Trump, Mr. Obama is ready to pursue his goal of toppling President Trump. This is where his close friend and advisor, Valarie Jarrett comes in.
Barack Obama is turning his new home in the posh Kalorama section of the nation’s capital – just two miles away from the White House – into the nerve center of the mounting insurgency against his successor, President Donald J. Trump.
Obama’s goal, according to a close family friend, is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment.
And Obama is being aided in his political crusade by his longtime consigliere, Valerie Jarrett, who has moved into the 8,200-square-foot, $5.3-million Kaloroma mansion with the former president and Michelle Obama, long time best friends.
Jarrett played a vital – if at times low-key – role in the Obama presidency. She lived in the White House, dined with the Obamas, and help shape his domestic and foreign policies.
Is the next part of the report believable in its entirety? In other words, was Obama prepared to sit back and enjoy retirement as other presidents have done only to be convinced to lead the opposition by Jarrett?
On Tuesday, former Attorney General Eric Holder revealed that Obama is indeed getting closer to making his public reappearance in politics.
‘It’s coming. He’s coming,’ Holder said speaking to reporters. ‘And he’s ready to roll.’
According to the family source, Obama was at first reluctant to assume the role of leader of the opposition.
‘No longer the most powerful man in the world, he was just observing Trump and not liking what he saw,’ said the source.
‘He was weary and burned out after eight years in office. But Valerie convinced him that he didn’t have any choice if he wanted to save his legacy. And, as usual, he bowed to Valerie’s political wisdom and advice.’
No doubt he was weary — eight years of continuous rounds of golf and travel to foreign lands in the luxury of Air Force One can really tire a man out.
Spurred on by Jarrett and Michelle, the ex-president has come to embrace his role as the leader of the opposition against Trump, whose policies he loathes and whose presidency he considers illegitimate.
‘He is going to use his immense popularity with the half of the country that identifies as liberals and progressives,’ said the Obama family source. ‘Millions of Americans are energized and ready to take to the streets to oppose Trump, but they need to be organized and have their anger focused and directed.
‘Obama is dismayed at the way Trump is tearing down his legacy—ObamaCare, the social safety net and the welcome mat for refugees he put in place,’ the source continued.
Sort of makes you wonder if the rest of the Democrats really want Obama has their leader? He did get his man elected as chairman of the DNC, so that’s an opportunity to exert some control of the Democratic Party.
Note the following remark in the light of the ongoing controversy involving Attorney General Sessions.
Trump’s cabinet picks are also problematic for the former president, especially Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, whom Obama regards as too racially insensitive to be in charge of the Civil Rights division at Justice.
It does make you wonder where the impetus for this attack on Sessions came from.
This is all just too bad for Mr. Obama. He was a failed president who accomplished virtually nothing, at least nothing lasting. What will he be remembered for? Obamacare? Wars in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan? Benghazi? Inflaming racial tensions? Doubling the national debt? Bowing before Middle-Eastern tyrants? Restarting the cold war with Russia?
We could go on, but the point has been made: An honest evaluation of Obama’s presidency at best rates a zero in terms of accomplishments. Given many of his policies will need work to eliminate, he was clearly a negative force on this country.
That he has supporters is obvious and to be expected. All leaders do, even genocidal maniacs can inflame the passions of millions to follow them to their own destruction.
It is the height of arrogance and hubris that Mr. Obama allegedly believes he can topple President Trump. Even with his pal Valerie, they have run up against a formidable enemy if they wish to create one out of Donald Trump.
President Trump has played in the big leagues for decades. Mr. Obama was a two-bit, radical community organizer who managed to get through law school, and who later made the connections with powerful interests necessary to become a senator then president.
During his presidency, he was owned by those powerful interests who put him there. Does anyone really believe he was able to defeat the Clinton political machine in 2008 on his own? Nonsense, he’s just a tool. Any plans he might have will be carefully monitored or adjusted by the moneyed interests who put him in power in the first place.
