When one reflects on the last seven years it is quite impressive how public opinion on all things Obama has shifted from his being thought a be a hero, to everyone now realizing that he is a thoughtless fool with no idea what he’s doing in the Oval Office. Oh, sure, the press still fawns over him, but that’s the job of the leftist press and they will do it regardless of what a failure Obama has been in terms of assuring safe borders and the protection of the constitutional rights of all citizens. He has been extraordinarily successful in the only area he considers important: He has “fundamentally transformed America”, or at least fundamentally pointed America in a direction meant to destroy it.
Several years ago, I believe it was the prolific author Thomas Sowell, who commented on the slow but certain leftward drift of American politics. He was at the time in his sixties and believed he would be dead before America could drift to total destruction. But that was before Obama. Barack Obama pushed the pedal to the metal and has caused so much chaos, confusion and division in our nation in just seven years that the end seems very near indeed.
But Obama’s sudden jolt to the left and to totalitarianism may have been a mistake for those who, like him, hate America and encouraged this redirection. After all, with the coming of Obama, we did get the Tea Parties and their allies suddenly activated and involved in politics; we did get a candidate in Donald Trump to state politically incorrect things that most loyal and patriotic Americans were either afraid to say or felt they would be helpless to stop the intentional destruction of all they held dear. And we have seen the rejection by the public of the old Republican establishment who seemed to compete with leftist Democrats to see who could move the nation left the quickest.
On top of everything else, Obama’s seeming hand-picked candidate to succeed him in the presidency has been a complete and total failure considering her leftist lurch to try to out-do the socialist Bernie Sanders; her email scandal; her lies about the deaths in Benghazi; her terrible record of non-accomplishments as Secretary of State; and the revelations of her and Bill’s past scandals which the left believed were safely buried, but have been unearthed for a new generation to see and consider.
Of course it’s true that there is pressure from all sides to dump Trump and get the Republican party back on track again in order to protect the careers of the professional politicians who, like Harry Reid have become multi-millionaires on a comparatively Spartan Senate salary, and occupy elected positions which many politicians eventually leave to join the influence-buying and peddling pressure groups on Washington’s K Street, where some real money can be made if one will only play the game and serve the corporate and big-government ends of getting the votes that will serve the lobbyists.
Obama made a big mistake by turning his back on the United States constitution and the laws of our nation. He awakened the so-called Sleeping Giant hiding just under the surface of America’s comfortable and contented majority, and they are pissed!
There is no doubt that there are things that have been done by Obama that will plague the nation forever (illegal immigration; healthcare uncertainty; bad schools; racial divide; an influx of terrorist “refugees” who intend us only ill; a debt that’s likely to be unrepayable) but if true patriotic Americans are elected to the House, Senate and the White House this year, the nation will survive once again, and maybe, to borrow from and slightly modify Donald Trump’s slogan, just maybe, we can “Make America, America Again”. At the very least, Obama has made us long for the good ole days prior to his arrival, and that’s a wake-up call and a good start.
