The Drone King opines and whines
Michelle: The presidency doesn't have a marketing budget.
ME: The presidency has the bully pulpit.
Obama: The only time young folks know what the government does is when it doesn't work.
ME: That was the problem with your tenure, Barak, you did not work for us or put any thoughts into making our lives better.
Michelle: If people are paying attention they understand what is missing.
ME: YEAH you nailed it Michelle. We were paying attention and we did notice what was missing during your husband's crime spree. More wars. More transfer of wealth. More increased wealth inequality. More removal of our civil rights. More killing of innocent civilians abroad. The rescission of due process for Americans which led to Obama killing 3 Americans without trial.
Krystal: Yeah young people are cynical after Obama's failure to do what he said that he would.
ME: Probably the most honest thing Obama said that he was a Reagan Republican.
Rachel: They have this whole million dollar podcast telling people how dumb they are.
Krystal: Obama was a Rorschach's test that people just saw and heard what they wanted when Obama spoke. They squandered the opportunity they had to turn the country around.
ME: Damn right he did. But hey he is still held in high esteem and loved and missed by the sycophants that cannot see who and what Obama actually was. His presidency was the 3rd and 4th terms of Bush. This is why Trump is Obama's legacy and why Obama made sure that Bernie didn't win because it would have highlighted the fact that Obama was an Empty Suit president that wasted 8 years in office on so many important issues. Yay we got the Paris accords for climate change. Yippy huh? Then Obama opened the country up to drilling and fracking including drilling in the arctic. F both of you Obamas!!!! Good grief will no one rid of this meddlesome couple.
This needs repeating:
In the US, the victory of Reagan was when Bill Clinton helped create the “Third Way,” which was an adoption of neoliberal principle. Again, it would not matter if Republicans or Democrats were in power, the rich would get richer and the social state would be defunded.
This is from the Ian Welsh article in my essay. I hope people took the time to read the whole thing as well as watch the video on how the 2008 economic crash was a huge crime spree that is still happening. Obama knew that banks were still fraudulently throwing people out of their homes and turned a blind eye to it.
