The Obama Legacy

He’s gone!

There’s a new sheriff in town!  Donald John Trump now runs the show.  Barack Hussein Obama is gone and we can now take a fresh, objective look at what America’s first African American President left behind as his:

LEGACY

Of which he was deeply, almost neurotically concerned.

In fact, just before November 2016 elections, Obama made the statement:

MY LEGACY’S ON THE BALLOT

The very same thing he said before Election 2014 (midterms).  And, said writer Deroy Murdock, an astute political pundit:

 

THE DEMOCRATS HAVE PAID THE ULTIMATE PRICE.
THE POLITICAL CADAVERS OF MORE THAN 1,000 DEMOCRATIC INCUMBENTS AND NOMINEES FROM HILLARY CLINTON ON DOWN CONFIRM THAT OBAMA IS:

POISON AT THE POLLS (DEROY MURDOCK!)

So, what is the political legacy of Mr. Obama?  An article in the Wall Street Journal noted that President Obama, “obsessed with his legacy” left behind the following.

First, says the Wall Street Journal article, a Republican President.  Not Clinton, not a Democrat to inherit his policies.  A Republican.

And, of course, a Republican Vice President, one Mike Pence.

And, Republican Senatorial Elections 2016 which gives the Republicans control of the Senate.  And, Republican control, dominating control, of the House of Representatives.

And, Republican control of 31 state Houses of our 50 states, the governors of 31 of those states are REPUBLICAN.

And, Republican control of 31 state Houses of Representatives.

And, 34 of our 50 states with Republican Governors, a loss for the Democrats of 24%.

And, Republican control of a majority of county governments.

And, Republican control of a majority of city governments.

For this progressive, some say radical out-going Democratic President, that is quite a legacy, don’t you think?

Further, hear the following information from the Federal Reserve Bank in St. Louis.  First, student loans skyrocketed and now become one of the most difficult financial situations and largest debts of the federal government.

Food stamps as a result of skyrocketing welfare increased dramatically in the Obama eight years.

Health insurance costs under ObamaCare have also dramatically increased and are scheduled to increase even more this year if the Republicans don’t act.

The workers and the Middle Class share of our economy, of our wealth plummeted as did median family income.

Obama who promised to end the Mid-East wars saw the continuation of eight more years of warfare.

Since the Great Recession 2008, America has experienced the lowest economic growth in American history, the lowest recovery record from a recession.

There were record numbers of terrorist attacks in America.  There were record numbers of mass shootings.

America now has the highest national debt in its history and ever-growing.

And that, say hosts of political analysts, is the real legacy of Barack Hussein Obama.

Maureen Dowd is a very liberal progressive writer for the New York Times, creative, bombastic and no friend of conservatives or Republicans.  Her brother, Kevin Dowd is also a writer with, ironically, conservative persuasions.  Kevin Dowd following the election and poking fun at sister Maureen Dowd of the New York Times wrote the following:

THE ELECTION WAS A COMPLETE REPUDIATION OF BARACK OBAMA: HIS FANTASY WORLD OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS, THE POLITICIZATION OF THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT AND THE IRS, AND OUT OF CONTROL EPA, HIS NEUTERING OF THE MILITARY, HIS NONSUPPORT OF THE POLICE AND HIS FIXATION ON THINGS LIKE TRANSGENDER BATHROOMS.  SINCE HE BECAME PRESIDENT, HIS PARTY HAS LOST 63 HOUSE SEATS, 10 SENATE SEATS AND 14 GOVERNORSHIPS.

More fact about Obama’s real legacy.

Kevin Dowd goes onto write as follows:

PREACHING AND PANDERING WITH A MESSAGE OF INCLUSION,
THE DEMOCRATS HAVE INSTEAD BECOME A PARTY WHERE INCIVILITY AND BAD MANNERS ARE TAKEN FOR GRANTED,
RUDENESS IS ROUTINE, RELIGION IS MOCKED AND THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO RESPECT FOR A DIFFERERING OPINION.

Small wonder that Clinton was outvoted by Trump in three blue states which, if those states had voted Democrat as they typically do, Clinton would have been our 45th President.  I wonder if Mr. Obama, whose LEGACY WAS ON THE BALLOT would have loved to have seen another, any other name on the Democratic ballot than Clinton.  In many ways because of Obama, writer Deroy Murdock further states that Obama’s party is smaller, weaker and ricketier, more so than it has been since the early 1940s.

In the Obama eight years, our first African American President has witnessed (and supervised) the net loss of 959 key Democratic positions in all areas of government federal, state and local.  Yet, says Deroy Murdock, the Democrats still don’t get it:

 

DEMOCRATS CAN CHANT THE SEETHING LIE THAT THIS WHOLESALE MULTI-LEVEL REJECTION OF THEIR PARTY STEMS FROM STRUCTURAL RACISM,
THE LEGACY OF JIM CROW, THE IMMORTAL TENTACLES OF SLAVERY, OR WHATEVER OTHER ANALGESIC EXCUSE THEY CAN SCROUNGE UP.
THE SAME NATION THAT THEY CLAIM CAN NOT OUTGROW ITS BIGOTRY SOMEHOW ELECTED AND THEN RE-ELECTED OBAMA, QUITE COMFORTABLY.

Democrats continue to use the same jargon, the worn out slogans of racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, chauvinism and so many others of the old ISMS, and really says Deroy Murdock, really DON’T GET IT.  Instead of real growth and reform, Obamaism has fostered economic stagnation, a “morbidly obese and equally dysfunctional government,” racial and identity fetishism and rampant political correctness.

A new paralyzing way of thinking and speech. And that, concludes Murdock, Kevin Dowd and the Wall Street Journal among so many others is the:

REAL LEGACY OF BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA

We the people spent $831 billion in stimulus money in the years 2009 and 2010 with little effect.  We the people had eight consecutive years of economic growth below 3%.  We also had an 88% increase, almost the doubling of:

THE NATIONAL DEBT

We spent as a nation $2.3 trillion to finance widespread insurance policy cancellations.  We witnessed 20 bankruptcies among 24 state co-ops.  We saw the early retirements because of ObamaCare from experienced but exasperated doctors.  We saw the federal government grow to unbelievable sizes and micromanage everything from dishwashers to third grade lunches and become proactive in fostering transgender bathrooms.  All of that Obama took as his legacy to the ballot.

Small wonder the Democrats lost so badly.
The Democrats, says Murdock, have “paid the ultimate price.”

So many Democrats had emotional meltdowns.  Writer Dowd had the following advice for them:

 

IF YOUR PREFERRED CANDIDATE LOSES (CLINTON), THERE IS NO NEED FOR MASS HYSTERIA,
CANCELLED MIDTERMS, SAFE SPACES, CRYING ROOMS OR GROUP PRIMAL SCREAMS.

In short, get over it and get on with your life!  One good thing about this is that the liberal media, both print and electronic, has lost virtually all credibility.  The New York Times was in crisis mode.  They promised a new objectivity and for that, WE ARE STILL WAITING.  Don’t hold your breath.  Including any objective changes in CBS, NBC, ABC and certainly not academia or Hollywood.  The airports are still waiting to transport those good folk out of the country, to live wherever they want, anywhere but here!  And that, my fellow Americans, all of that is the real legacy of Barack Hussein Obama.

Interestingly, Obama plans to hunker down in Washington, D.C. (he has already applied for membership in an exclusive golf club in that area), comment on current events and counsel (can you believe that), counsel the Democratic Party and their candidates with regard to issues, values and elections.  Of that post-Presidency objective, writer Dowd says the following:

DEMOCRATS SHOULD FIND THIS AS APPETIZING AS DINNER COOKED BY TYPHOID MARY!

So now, my fellow Americans, onto the new sheriff in town (Eddie Murphy).  There are dozens and more dozens of promises political, economic, cultural and global from this unique businessman now President.  The legacy of Barack Hussein Obama, once on the ballot and a disastrous failure, will be soon long forgotten and America, according to Trump will engage in a major:

CHANGE BACK

All that America was pre-Obama will be energized, reinvigorated, restored and revived.  It will be for right-thinking conservatives and people of faith a new day and age, of hope, opportunity and progress.

So, Mr. Trump, at or about 12:01 PM Friday, January 20, 2017, you will, good sir:

 

THE NEW SHERRIFF IN TOWN

Now it is time for you, Mr. Trump, as one writer so eloquently stated, to:

STEP UP OR SHUT UP

We the people hope and pray that you will in fact step up, be the DOER-CHANGER you promised to be.  We the people will hold you responsible now, and for the next four years.  Perhaps you will be a President who will in fact do what you say.  For the good of America, you better.  We are watching, Mr. Trump, we are waiting and watching.

MAKE THE THINGS YOU PROMISED HAPPEN!
