Last week Barack Obama made a speech in Elkhart, Indiana, that was supposed to be a renunciation of Donald Trump and his announced policies should he become president, but it turned into a stammering fest as Obama got stuck on his words and repeated them so many times that he sounded like an old 45 RPM record that got stuck in a defective groove. It would appear that Donald Trump has the liberal establishment so shook up and fearful that their Hate America First effort is crumbling and coming down on their heads.
Obama was, of course, preaching to the faithful (whether he was addressing the Islamic faithful or the liberal Democrat faithful I’m not sure) and vaguely denounced Trump for his future plans. But the problem with all of Obama’s complaints about Trump is that the subjects Obama selects to criticize are the very things that Obama himself has actually concentrated on and undermined or destroyed as president: social and racial division; elevated national unemployment rate; illegal immigration; illegal punishment of his political opponents; increased poverty levels; over-regulation that causes businesses to either shut down or have to lay employees off; increased welfare roles; illegal and unconstitutional acts from the Oval Office, etc.
As Obama just kept repeating the same word, “If, If, If, If…” for such a long time I was concerned that the man had gone mental (well, he is mental, but this was different).
