Barack Obama’s slavish followers and apologists claim he is creating a legacy for himself with Obamacare and the Iranian nuclear agreement, but those misguided things are as much a legacy for Obama as Neville Chamberlain’s “peace in our time” agreement with Adolph Hitler was a legacy to Mr. Chamberlain’s memory, but instead of providing a favorable memory for Mr. Chamberlain, his “legacy” led to the destruction of Europe and the suffering and deaths of millions of people. A legacy is usually considered to be a large beneficial gift to one’s relatives and countrymen, much like the United States Constitution was a legacy from our nation’s founders to every American to live here in the last 200-plus years. But Chamberlain’s agreement with Hitler assured that a world war would follow the signing, and today Chamberlain’s big success is considered an unbelievably huge failure. And this failure was made by him in spite of advice to the contrary, along with warnings of Hitler’s treachery and dishonesty. But our Neville was wiser than his advisers and moved ahead in search of a legacy, much like our attention-starved president is doing.
Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran so precisely parallels Chamberlain’s agreement with Hitler that the similarities are startling, and only a self-centered, ideological big-shot like Obama would even consider it. His agreement assures that Iran will get a nuclear device in a few years; it assures that no alarms indicating a violation to the agreement will be raised during the development interval and it assures that even if an alarm were to be raised, nothing will be found by the time a team can be assembled to investigate, so the illegal development will continue apace. And we also know that the much advertised “snap-back” will not be applied even if a violation to the agreement is noticed and challenged. Iran’s recent testing and further development of a missile with which to deliver the nuke, coming just weeks after Obama signed the agreement, is proof of their treachery and their total disregard for the agreement, and Obama’s failure to do anything to challenge the Iranians proves that his idiotic desire for a “legacy” will stop at nothing.
On the other hand, if Obama really thinks that his Obamacare legislation assures a positive legacy, then he’s not only crazy, he’s also stupid. We already see many people, suffering after being forced off the healthcare plan they liked and could afford, now having to take less coverage for higher premiums and higher deductibles under Obamacare, and these higher fees must be met before the insurance even kicks in. So just wait a few years, when all of the Obamacare provisions have been fully implemented, (as proof of liberal fears of the general population learning how extensively bad Obamacare is, full implementation has been repeatedly delayed in order to not alienate voters when elections were near) when healthcare under Obama is proven to be a disaster and when the actual working plan is considered by the liberal press without the personality of Obama to intimidate them, we’ll see a great change of heart as to the benefits of government-run healthcare.
If Obamacare and the Iran nuke deal survive a few years beyond the passing of the Obama administration (and intelligent people pray that they will not), Obama’s legacy will change into that of a laughingstock, just like Neville Chamberlain’s memory is that of a fool.
