Hopefully, and with any luck, right about the time that President Trump is finishing up his eighth year in office it will be as if Barry ‘O’ had never been president. And I think that’s the one thing that terrifies Democrats most of all about President Trump, and why there has been such a concerted effort by those on the left to do all that they can in their attempt to remove him from office. But as has been mentioned more than a few times, of late, it’s in spite of ‘news’ coverage that has been over 90 percent negative practically since he took office that his approval rating continues to tick upward and is now higher than Barry’s was at the same point in his first term.
And might I say that never has there been a president who was more deserving of having his ‘legacy’ erased, and to make it appear as if his presidency never even happened, than Barry ‘O’. The ONLY positive thing that resulted from his having been in office is that we ended up with President Trump. Because, as I have said on any number of previous occasions, had Barry not been elected president I am very firmly convinced there would have never been a President Trump. Barry set out to “fundamentally change America.” And now Trump is fundamentally changing Barry’s legacy. Barry is now being fundamentally erased, as if he was never elected.
And the decision by President Trump to withdraw from the nuclear deal with Iran is the biggest blow, but it’s only the latest. The elimination of the individual mandate and canceling the yearly bailout of insurance companies has left Obamacare in a precarious condition. Young immigrants whose parents brought them to the United States unlawfully, the so-called dreamers, are losing their legal status. This is historic. Presidents often vow to wipe out big chunks of their predecessor’s legacies. President Eisenhower was going to take on the ‘New Deal’, Ronald Reagan targeted ‘The Great Society.’ Both backed down. President Trump, so far, has not.
But Barry and Democrats made President Trump’s task a relatively easy one. Barry, as you’ll recall, succeeded brilliantly in the first two years of his presidency when Democrats controlled Congress. But once Republicans held the House, Senate, or both over the next six years, he ignored Capitol Hill whenever he thought he could get away with it. He spared himself the unpleasantness of having to compromise with Republicans and instead governed by executive orders and regulations. And as he is now finding out, actions taken by the president alone prove vulnerable to being erased by subsequent presidents. And that’s what happened to the pact with Iran.
Democrats went so far as to use the filibuster to block even a nonbinding vote on it. President Trump killed the deal with his pen. That was also all it took to quit the Paris accord on global warming. There were two factors behind Barry’s decision to shun a treaty, which requires a two-thirds vote in the Senate. Winning that lopsided a vote appeared to be impossible. On the other hand, Barry had a backup, Hitlery. She was expected to win the presidency in 2016 and could then be relied upon to protect the nuclear agreement. But a funny thing happened on the way to the inauguration, Hitlery lost the election. And Barry’s legacy is now going up in smoke.
On immigration, Barry might well have prevailed had he sought congressional approval of legal status for young illegals, the dreamers. Again, Republican votes would have been needed. He rejected that. And since Barry said he couldn’t legally act on his own, it looked like nothing would be done. Then he changed his mind and simply announced the approach known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Neither a regulation nor a law, it’s simply a policy. With Barry gone, it lacks a presidential defender. Trump abandoned it, though he’s offered a pact to keep the dreamers here: They’d be legalized and Trump would get his wall on the southwest border.
Which would seem to be a pretty straightforward exchange, except for one thing. Democrats remain stubbornly opposed to the wall. It’s more important to them than even the fate of hundreds of thousands of dreamers, so Democrats declined. Which leads to another problem they’ve created for themselves, one that further jeopardizes Barry’s legacy while making political life less of a struggle for President Trump and Republicans. Democrats have adopted a strategy of resisting President Trump across the board. It’s blind resistance, all anger and ideology with absolutely no amount of commonsense thrown in. And there haven’t been any exceptions.
As much as Barry and Democrats are to blame, Barry’s incredible shrinking legacy isn’t entirely their fault. A good bit is the result of Trump’s success and canny choice of issues. On foreign policy, does anyone want to return to the days of appeasing North Korea? Should the American embassy in Israel be moved back to Tel Aviv at the earliest opportunity? Should we go back to insisting that concessions by Israel provide a path to peace in the Middle East? On domestic issues, Barry’s legacy has better prospects for survival, or at least for being revived by some future Democrat majority in Congress. That’s because the Democrat mindset on taxes is locked in place.
Finally, Barry ‘O’ set out to fundamentally degrade America, internally and externally, and he was largely successful because our cadre of RINOs in Congress simply rolled over and essentially funded him 100 percent for eight years. And what about the social fabric of our nation? Look where the promotion of homosexual marriage/ adoption and transgender “rights” has lead us. Look at the black racism in the BLM movement and in racial alliance with violent black thugs that Barry openly promoted. President Trump needs to continue the dismantling of Barry’s legacy and to root out the pernicious residue left behind by this anti-America traitor!
