Special Opinion to the Cape Charles Mirror by Paul Plante
Yes, people, it is true, or at least it appears to be true, from all the rumors in the press, that the second coming of Barack Hussein Obama to American politics is immanent, but then, it would have to be, wouldn’t it?
Afterall, with his superstar appeal to his adoring fans, can anyone imagine Obama staying out of the limelight without a soap box to make his political pronouncements to the masses from?
As to the second coming of Obama, in the Newsweek article “Obama Is Returning to Politics in 2018, and Trump Should Be Worried” by Sam Schwarz on 1/17/18 at 9:29 AM, we are told as follows:
If President Donald Trump and the Republican Party were already worried about defending their majorities in the House and Senate come November, they will now have another major factor to contend with: Barack Obama.
See what I am saying about rumors of Obama’s immanent return in the press?
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of Obama!
He is coming to trample out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored in Trump Tower and Mar-A-Lago!
He will loose the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword and his truth will be marching on, Glory!
Getting back to Newsweek:
The former president enjoyed a busy year since leaving the White House but has largely stayed under the radar.
Actually, that is not true.
We all have seen Obama out there enjoying the “good life,“ after leaving the White House with a net worth of $12.2 million, with First Lady Michelle Obama not far behind with a net worth of $11.8 million, jet-setting around the world, rafting rapids and climbing mountains and hang-gliding and partying, so the dude has hardly been under the radar; he’s just been having himself a real good time, is all, as Newsweek makes clear as follows:
The president spent part of 2017 jet-setting around the globe and making the most of some time off after eight years of nonstop scrutiny and governing, but he always maintained that he would never leave politics behind.
And now, he is coming back.
Let’s see what Newsweek has to say on that subject:
Now, Obama is reportedly planning to return to politics in 2018, setting the stage for a prominent role in the lead-up to the crucial midterm elections.
Ah, “reportedly planning to return.”
See what I am saying about rumors of his immanent return flying around like bats in a feeding frenzy in a church belfry?
But that is so Obama, isn’t people?
The sense of drama, I mean.
Milk that drama for all it is worth; that is the secret of a successful politician in America today, and Obama is a master at that, so we shouldn’t be surprised at the drama build-up here, kind of like the edge-of-the-seat excitement people in America experience this time of the year as they wait to see who is going to be in the Superbowl.
The real question for all of us in America to consider is this: What is this “prominent role” Obama is going to play in the lead-up to the crucial midterm elections.
This is what we have from Newsweek on that subject:
Obama will “continue to be politically active in 2018, with more endorsements and more campaigning,” his spokeswoman Katie Hill told The Chicago Tribune.
Before leaving office, Obama vowed to remain politically relevant and work with and endorse candidates who sought to preserve his legacy and signature accomplishments.
Ah, yes, people, Obama wants to be relevant and have his legacy preserved.
But what on earth does that mean?
What really is Obama’s legacy beyond the $9 trillion in federal debt added during the 8 years Obama was in office and the huge humanitarian crisis he and Hillary Clinton created in the Middle East with their cock-a-mamie scheme to remove Basher Assad of Syria from power using an army of terrorists to do so?
According to Douglas Brinkley of Rice University, among the presidential historians who had met with Obama for dinners, Obama wants to be remembered on the scale of Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson, but isn’t that just wishful thinking on Obama’s part?
As for “legacy,” that can be defined as “money or property given to another by will,” or “something handed down from an ancestor or a predecessor or from the past,” as in “a legacy of religious freedom,” i.e., heritage, or “an individual who is either an applicant to an educational institution or a matriculated student and is the child of an alumna or alumnus.”
So what is Obama talking about with his “legacy,” then?
In an article by Dylan Stableford for Yahoo Politics on September 20, 2015, we had this hint from Hillary Clinton:
“I obviously am running because I think it’s better for the country if a Democrat who has the kind of approaches and values that my husband had and Barack Obama has follows this presidency.”
Does that give us comfort, people?
Should that give us comfort?
As to Obama as the coming Messiah, Newsweek gives us this thought to consider:
In a September poll, 52 percent of respondents to a poll said they wished Obama were still in office.
Is Obama an avenging angel then, a Caesar for our times crossing the Rubicon with his club and pipe-wielding, masked Anti-Fa legions at his back to drive evil from our land, along with everyone in Hillary Clinton’s basket of deplorables?
Or is he simply coming back to do what he does best, which is acting as a pitchman or barker for the Democrats, doing infomercials for them with a Captain America costume on, to pitch the Democrat’s socialist agenda to the American people gullible enough to believe the Democrats are going to provide vital services such as health care, child care, education from pre-K through higher education, shelter and transportation to everyone on demand, free of charge, and further, in order to ensure that the enjoyment of full citizenship was not tied to ups and downs in the labor market, the Democrats are going to ensure that everyone in America would also receive a universal basic income, that is, a base salary for every member of society, regardless of the person’s employment status?
That, people, is the Democrat “Better Deal,” and if there is a pitchman to sell that unrealistic tripe to the gullible people in America to get them to embrace the Democrat’s socialist agenda, it is Barack Hussein Obama, the pitchman’s pitchman, a dude of who make “Devil Bill” Rockefeller proud to make his acquaintance.
So stay tuned for more, America, because this story is just breaking and it has legs, so there is sure to be much more to come, so stay tuned and don’t change that dial!
