Sorry, but using Johnny Carson’s stage entry line as a metaphor in an essay may be a bit churlish but damn it, it fits. That cheap schmuck Barak Obama simply couldn’t stand it anymore and had to come clambering back onto the political stage like he was really wanted.
Trumps robust America, almost out of the starting gate, is more that any marxist should have to endure. Barak’s brand of economic and social Obamaism that we endured for eight long miserable years, produced nothing meaningful for American except to apologize for Americas needed role of world leadership, import Islam, throw open our borders to the worlds peasants (voters), destroy American culture and kill American production and freedom by high taxes and over regulation. In the end, all he created was a “Deep State” that is struggling for its very survival under Trumps incessant pounding. After all, the State must be preserved at all costs.
So here comes Barak, the slick tongued, greasy used car salesman and community organizer, trying to claim credit for Trumps instinctive economic triumphs. He no longer apologizes for Americans supposed failures, but denigrates Trumps robust economy as actually the result of his policies of onerous regulation and oppressive taxation. They would have come to full bloom if only he had had a few more months. He trashes Trumps foreign policy as dangerous and war-mongering but his own policies, leading from behind, proved more dangerous to a stable world.
Comparisons in leadership, which he promotes, cannot stand comparison.
So, as expected, Obama slithered out of his dark hole to protect his legacy. Yes, he has one but its a legacy of failure in social, economic, political and foreign policy. According to Obama’s calculations, Trumps robust economy, the low unemployment numbers, higher incomes and jobs for all, wasn’t really the product of that awful Donald Trump, but was an economy he had primed and ready to spring upon the world if he had had just one more term. Oh, really?
Obama still draws a crowd of college students, but they don’t scream and holler like Trumps crowds do. His admirers cling to the hope that only Obama’s brand of Socialism can possibly succeed for America. Yet, the democrat party is morphing right before our eyes into something potentially dangerous if Conservatives don’t take to the stage as well to kill the dragon.
The Democrat Party is caught between a rock and a hard spot because the old socialists that made up the party for decades and have run the party into the ground, still retain leadership despite the dementia we see creeping in. They are now being challenged by an even more radical left-wing brand of Marxists in the guise of ignorant young millennials heartened by Bernie Sanders near success at achieving the 2016 Democrat nomination. They bought into the ‘entitlement for all’ notions, are not taking kindly to the current elderly democrat leadership.
Their disappointment was when it was revealed that Sanders was beaten out of the nomination by the skullduggery of Hillary’s Democrat machine, and that will not be forgiven. The new Marxist even have their own “shock troops” in the guise of Antifa’s and BLM’s for street deployment. And their politicians, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, et. al, are there to stir the pudding of what was once gentlemanly political debate.
America faces a crisis. The Marxists can still count enough voters, even dead ones, to change the character of local politics if conservatives don’t stay prepared. We must get out and vote. We cannot drop our guard or our America can be snatched back into the jaws of growing tyranny. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get’m! (09Sep18)
