When Is A Legacy Not a Legacy? (Hint: when Obama Claims It)
A legacy is normally thought of as a positive thing handed down from one generation to the next, or in the example of a presidency, from one administration to future administrations, that will be looked upon favorably by successive administrations as beneficial to society in general. But occasionally the big-shot, arrogant posturing of one generation, in this case the “peace in our time” agreement between Neville Chamberlain and Adolph Hitler, is scorned by successive administrations for its thoughtless, destructive nature, and in the case of Chamberlain, the man is considered a numbskull idiot for making an agreement with Hitler that led directly to World War II. So what Chamberlain thought was his legacy turned out to be the document that will mock his name forever.
In the last year, our Barry Obama has not only assured war and destruction with his presumed “legacy” Iran nuke deal, he has assured the rapid development of a nuclear weapon that will be shared with tyrants around the world as soon as the terrorist capitol of the world, Iran and its war-mongering Mullahs, have developed it sufficiently to be shipped and used efficiently and with stealth.
Obama’s “legacy” will be death and destruction on a scale that even Chamberlain’s WWII could not match, and everyone in America with a brain warned him of this exact outcome to his signing the deal. But Obama was too smart and arrogant to listen, and has only lately, after the sanctions have been lifted, after he has praised Iran for following the agreement faithfully, and after he gave Iran $1.4 Billion in order to show the Mullahs that he was not the bad, embarrassing things that they have been publicly calling him, he suddenly admits that the deal was a bad one and, perhaps, should not have happened.
When politically motivated rush jobs are accomplished for the purpose of establishing a “legacy” the outcome is often not quite as planned. Obama rushed to sign the deal with Iran and now the resulting nuclear development by that terrorist nation and its nuclear spread can’t be stopped. He opened our southern border and now the chaos of disease, crime and homelessness can’t be reversed as thousands of family units freely cross our border. He pushed Obamacare through congress and now the entire nation’s health care is threatened with increased costs and deteriorating service.
Obama’s legacy will be that of a laughed-at fool, and Neville Chamberlain is glad to cede the top spot of foolishness to him. But that’s the price Obama must pay for trying to “fundamentally transform America”.
