I am not now, nor have I ever been, a big fan of our current president. However, let me be among the first to admit that when Barry came into office he did so with the potential to become so much more than what he has. Here was the first black man to be elected president of the United States, imagine, all of the good he could have done. And while those on the left may disagree, Barry would, instead, allow himself to be controlled by what is a twisted ideology and with the net result being that when he finally does leave office he will be leaving our country far worse off than when it was turned over to him.
If nothing else, Barry is, without a doubt, living proof that the level of potential one possess comes with a definite expiration date. And Barry’s potential for greatness expired on his very first day in office. And that he could so badly have squandered so much, and so quickly, makes it all the more apparent that he never really had any intention of working to bring the American people together. So imagine my surprise when, just yesterday, Barry claimed, during a White House joint press conference with the leftist Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, that he has “certainly... not contributed to” dividing the country.
And it was during this very same press conference that Barry would go on to say, “I’ve said at the State of the Union that one of my regrets is the degree to which polarization and the nasty tone of our politics has accelerated rather than waned over the course of the last 7 1/2 years.” While I agree that that is most definitely the case, was Barry not the president during that same span of time? And that to be seen as nothing more than some weird coincidence? And it was then that Barry proceeded to provide us with and explanation of who he sees as being at fault. And I’m sure you can guess who he says is to blame.
Barry said: “I do all kinds of soul searching in terms of, are there things that I can do better to make sure that we are unifying the country. But I also have to say… that objectively it’s fair to say that the Republican political elites and many of the information outlets, social media and news stations, talk radio, television stations have been feeding the Republican base for the last seven years a notion that everything I do is to be opposed, that cooperation or compromise somehow is a betrayal, that maximalist, absolutist positions on issues are politically advantageous, that there is a ‘them’ out there and an ‘us’ and ‘them’ are the folks who are causing whatever the problems you’re experiencing and the tone of that politics, which I certainly have not contributed to.”
Sorry, Mr. President, but "objectively it's fair to say" that it’s you and your very own rabid anti-Americanism and your goal of “fundamentally transforming” this country that are really to blame here. It's not the fault of some mythical vast right-wing conspiracy as you would like everyone to believe. And as is usually the case, and as we have seen play out time and again over the course of the last seven years, Barry once again stubbornly refuses to accept any responsibility this class warfare. Nothing negative can ever be said to be any fault of his. How wonderful it must be to go through life with nothing bad ever being your fault.
And Barry continued by saying, “You know, I don’t think that I was the one to prompt questions about my birth certificate, for example. I don’t remember saying, "Hey, why don’t you ask me about that?" "Why don’t you question whether I’m American or whether I’m loyal or whether I have America’s best interests at heart." Those aren’t things that were prompted by any actions of mine, and so what you’re seeing within the Republican Party is, to some degree, all of those efforts over a course of time creating an environment where somebody like a Donald Trump can thrive.” No, Barry considers himself to be as pure as the wind driven snow.
The sorry and rather tragic result of our first Black President has been his compete inability and total unwillingness to bring various groups together through the Bully Pulpit. Martin Luther King set the table and Barry “Almighty” attempted the magic trick of removing the table cloth, but instead disrupted the settings and destroyed everything as things flew into chaos. Barry could have been so much more. And even many of us who chose not to vote for him hoped that he would be able to live up to all of the promise. But sadly, and in pretty short order, we came to realize that that was simply never going to happen.
Barry wanted to change the country and change it did! Unfortunately, again those on the left will disagree, he has changed it for the worse. Let’s face it, Obamacare is not only a disaster, but it was clearly intended to be nothing but a scam. And race relations in this country have never been worse. And then there’s the fact that over 90 million Americans are out of our workforce, more Americans are on welfare and food stamps than ever before, and his foreign policy is a joke. He continues to focus on the bogus issue of global warming, declaring it to be a more serious threat than terrorism and he has literally thrown open our southern border.
No, the fact that this country has become far more divided then ever over the course if his presidency can be, and rightly should be, blamed on no one other than Barry “Almighty.” If the last seven years have shown us anything it’s that the person we elect as our president has considerable influence on us as a nation. Barry came into office wanting to change the face of America, and when he does finally leave office, America will have come to much more closely resemble a third world nation than the prosperous beacon of freedom that it was on the day when he first stepped foot into the Oval Office. We have fallen so far in such a short period of time.
Oddly enough Barry will be leaving office with exactly the legacy that I think he intended to have. That being a diminished America, and on nearly every front. An America that has been purposely weakened economically, financially, morally, internationally and, of course, militarily. An America that may, in the end, be hopelessly divided. So for Barry it will be mission accomplished, but he must make it appear that it’s others who are to blame for the divisiveness. You see, Democrats need an America that is divided, it’s critical to their success. Because as long as we can be made to fight with each other, we’re not uniting against them.
