Obama & his fans were so insufferable during that 1st term because he would do something petty & stupid and dumb in an obvious way & then it would be denied.
Remember the ‘bow’ to King Fahd that wasn’t a bow?
There were plenty of early signs of Obama’s rampant narcissism, his pettiness.
Like this, for example. Watch him mention John McCain’s name, then extend his middle finger & draw it across his cheek.
Obama and his fans all snickered with it was discussed. “Oh you’re just imagining that!” they laughed. “Just like you guys imagined Obama bowed to the Saudi king! Quit making stuff up, would you!?”
Yes, we’re just making it up, right?
Imagine how petty and childish in his temperament a person would have to be to do this, this subtle finger gesture. His fans, of course LOVED that he did it and they LOVED *denying* that he did it.
And yet what was one of the BIGGEST selling points about Obama, to hear his fans in the media tell it? Why, his cool, always in control TEMPERAMENT.
I knew from the beginning this was bullshit.
I spent 8 years telling people if Obama’s academic records & college papers established his bona fides as an intellectual and the genius he was sold as being, we’d have seen them all long ago.
That’s why they were SEALED and they remain sealed to this day.
Obama? After ramming through huge spending increases, the stimulus bill & then ObamaCare from 2009-2010, Obama & Democrats were checked by the VOTERS who put Congress into the hands of the Republicans.
Obama REFUSED to move from his far Left positions.
Here’s an angle to the 2016 Presidential election people often overlook:
voters did NOT want an Obama 3rd term, which is precisely what Hillary Clinton represented.
Hillary was an awful candidate, true. But she was ALSO tasked with continuing Obama’s legacies.
Obama was not only petty and narcissistic, he was a radicalized Lefty ideologue through and through.
He constantly made the choice: “Well this would be the common sense, practical thing to do, but my IDEOLOGY & philosophical commitments tell me to do the opposite. So I will.”
I left something out of that last tweet:
Obama spent 8 years riling up racial discord in America. That’s another one of his legacies that it will take time to undo, but it’s already being undone.
