As many have likely heard, last Friday ex-resident Barry ‘O’ spoke for about an hour to a rather large audience at a major sports analytics conference at MIT. His remarks were to be off-the-record and also to be kept completely secret by virtually all of those in attendance, who had to agree that they would not record, photograph, tweet, or report on the event before being granted a seat in the audience. The most newsworthy thing about the speech is that the public was never supposed to hear it. But in this day of modern electronics it’s no surprise that word managed to leak out.
And so, were it not for some enterprising attendee, secrecy would have been maintained. Had that not been the case we would never know how it was that Barry made the rather bold, yet blatantly untrue, claim regarding how it was that his administration suffered not one scandal that embarrassed him or his team. It remains unclear why Barry might have thrown in the little caveat by saying that there were no scandals “that embarrassed his team,” but for whatever the reason, he did. Just as newsworthy is the fact he was able to make such a statement with a straight face.
Now our ex-president did admit, “There were mistakes.” And he went on to further admit, “We’d screw up, but there wasn’t anything venal during eight years. I know that seems like a low bar, but you look at the presidency; that’s no small thing.” However, conservatives remember the Obummer years a bit differently, citing the Fast and Furious scandal, the IRS scandal, wiretapping journalists, the terror attacks in Benghazi, delivering pallets of cash to Iran, and Hitlery’s illegal use of a private email server for government emails to name but a few of the many ‘scandals.’
The ex-president also insisted there was not much drama during his years in the White House either, all thanks to his superior leadership and organizational skills. He said, “Typically speaking, you didn’t hear about a whole lot of drama inside our White House, and that was also rare.” But Barry failed to mention reports of his press secretary Robert Gibbs’s cursing at Valerie Jarrett and first lady Moochelle. Gibbs left the administration soon after. He did admit that there were arguments among his “team of rivals” but said it was more about people trying to solve tough issues.
Barry said, “I did have a strong bias towards people who just wanted to get things right, get things done, as opposed to people who were obsessed with ‘I want to be right. I want to prominent. I want to have my name in the headlines.’” He went on to say, “And if you can create that culture, then you are more likely to be successful.” Funny, but as someone on the outside looking in, what it looked like to me was that Barry had more of a bias toward people who were interested only in enriching themselves. And the only ‘culture’ that was created was one of blatant corruption.
But let’s face it, scandals are made and reported on by the media. And Barry was the media’s ideal politician, an anti-white socialist black man. They were pushing him for president even before he even became a senator. Barry could be roasting babies alive on the White House lawn and no mainstream media would report it, or even find a problem with it. THAT’S why there were “no scandals.” Even a live broadcast of him devouring said roasted babies would cause a flood of media adoration, gushing over his cooking skills and demanding that a Barry Roast cookbook be published!
Barry remains nothing more than a hypocrite. He talks about gun violence yet releases thousands of inmate felons from prison, many who will likely commit more crimes including murder using guns. He supports sanctuary cities where illegal aliens run wild, many using firearms to commit crimes (it is a felony for an illegal alien to possess a firearm). He releases illegal alien criminals (many used guns to commit murder and other crimes) from prisons instead of deporting them and many have committed additional murders and other crimes with illegally obtained guns.
His was the most corrupt administration in history, with far more scandals than any other president in American history. And the media ran interference for him each time. And because of his lack of conscience, the absence of a moral compass, and being a pathological liar, he was patently incapable of being embarrassed. He worked as diligently as he could to destroy this Republic without the benefit of having any regret except for the fact that he could not fully complete the task. God intervened and prevented Hitlery from picking up where Barry left off to finish the job.
He is literally bragging about being a sociopath! Lacking the ability to feel shame or embarrassment is sociopathic. Lying about the Benghazi video, making impossible claims about Obamacare, calling 2009 the Summer of Recovery, the killing of Qaddafi and the Arab Spring debacle, trying to use executive privilege to shield Holder from charges, going around Congress and setting up DACA, bowing to foreign leaders every single time, calling America racist over and over, I could go on. An ordinary, mentally healthy mature adult would have blanched at any of these. But NOT Barry, no way!
Barry’s ego is so huge that he still believes he can do no wrong. People treated him like a God. They praised him no matter what sort of political shenanigans he pulled. He’s the consummate liar, he likes to deceive, he blames everyone but himself for his own screw ups and was one of the worst presidents this country has ever managed to elect. His entire eight years in office were a very dark time for us. He’s simply too much of a narcissist to see it. His mission was not to make America stronger and more prosperous, it was to “fundamentally transform” it into something else.
In the end, do you want to know what will be the most enduring legacy of the Barry ‘O’ years? It’s not the scandals or the corruption committed by him and others in his administration or even his unlawful executive orders. Barry’s presidency was a moment, an opportunity, that the American people provided to the Democrats, and the media, to prove that their way, their race-focused politicking, would work, and finally lift up this generation of Americans and this country to the ultimate ideals she stands for, and at last unite all us, which is what all Americans are hungry for.
And what did the Democrats, and all of their allies in the state-controlled media do? Yep, they behaved badly. To prove themselves right, and being totally invested in their race-based President, they not only aimed to protect him at all costs, they aimed to slander anyone questioning any of his misdeeds, as “racists”, “bigots”, “Nazis”, “Fascists” and every other name they can think of. And sensing the reluctance of his side to ever criticize him, Barry chose to take full advantage of it and to behave just as badly, boldly badly, audaciously badly, as only he could.
Barry screwed up everything that he came into contact with, not just for the country, but for African Americans and other minorities. And I believe, in looking back at how the first African American President’s term in the White House turned out, at how he behaved AND how much he got away with impunity, as well as at the behavior of the Democrats, and the media, both towards their President and against his critics, that Americans will be reluctant to go down that road again for a very long time to come. This is the ultimate ruinous tragedy of Barry and is his true legacy.
Barry can make all the claims that he wishes about his administration being the most scandal free and transparent in recent political history. And there are many in the state-controlled media who will echo such claims, and many Americans who will, for whatever reason, believe them. But the vast majority of Americans, whether they’re willing to admit it or not, know in their heart that this man devoted his entire time in office to doing all that he could to make this country weaker and less prosperous. And sadly it is from this man’s presidency that this country may never fully recover.
