There’s been some talk about King Barry I, once his kingship ends later this week, becoming the “face of the anti-Trump opposition in Washington.”
You see, after taking Jimmy Carter’s crown as “Worst President in Modern History,” The One wishes to also have Mr. Jimmah’s crown of “Worst Ex-President Evuh!”
Otard and Michelle plan to stay in Washington after Jan. 20 — after all, where else have they to go? Chicago? Yeah, I doubt they want him back — it’s already enough of a Hellhole without having him around to create mischief.
New York? They never really dug the Obamas (They actually don’t even dig the Clintons either). Hawaii? Too far out of the limelight — something Barry will never be able to do without ever again.
But I’m getting ahead of myself. Suffice to say, the Obamas will not voluntarily leave the stage and no one would dare try to kick them off of it.
Obama being the face of anti-Trump opposition, while something highly gauche for an ex-president, will likely be a natural evolution. Obama will love it and Democrats really have no one else to turn to.
King Barry’s narcissism and demands forced the whole party to devote itself to his survival and accrual of power and nothing else. It lost hundreds of offices at city, county and state levels and its bench is depleted at the national level. The party is headed by tired old failures like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer with dimwitted celebrities like Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham and Rosie O’Donnell acting as public auxiliaries. They are openly helped by the mainstream news media (as it seems intent upon mass suicide).
So Obama, with his seeming golden aura, he’s the only Democrat to have one, is a natural to lead the party’s public face.
And that will actually help the Republicans, conservatives and Trump.
Obama sucks the air out of every room he enters. And he does not tolerate competition for attention (adoration). He will do the Republicans dirty work for them by preventing new Democratic leaders from coming forth or becoming powerful. Short of the never-ending, self-generating frisson on the far left Obama will act as a halon gas for everything else.
And as the face, he will, and everyone will, find that golden aura becoming increasingly tarnished — as the foolishness of the Obama regnancy becomes more obvious as time goes by.
Sure our MSM and Entertainment-Industrial Complex will endlessly sings the praises of the pre-Trump “Good Times,” no matter how well Trump does (or doesn’t do), but that silliness will fall on greater numbers of deaf ears as the partisanship of those people becomes clearer; and they become more irrelevant.
