Democrats from Obama on down are ranting how Trump and the American people are harming the electoral process because we aren’t shy about telling telling the world that we fully expect it to be a rigged election, installing Hillary as POTUS irrespective of the actual will of we, the People.
Funny thing that, since the Democrats did it to a much greater extent and to greater, lasting harm to America’s electoral process back in 2000 when George W. Bush defeated Al Gore. It reeks of hypocrisy but is to be expected. Democrats and the sort that vote for them have always maintained a double standard, with Americans being held to a higher and stricter standard than those who tend to vote for Democrats.
All Presidents are concerned about their legacies. Having essentially reach both the pinnacle and end of public meaningfulness, the tend to worry about how history will remember them. In this it is logical to conclude that Obama is more concerned with this than most of predecessors.
Presidential Legacies – Bush vs. Obama
Of course, Obama is also in the lamentable position of having his legacy tied tightly with that of his immediate predecessor, President George W. Bush Jr.. This will cause the boy’s legacy to be compared to Bush’s.
There’s little point in denying that American politics is a mess and is, more often than not, about various messes. Indeed, a large part of the rhetoric flowing from the maws of politicians, especially those of Liberal bent, can be boiled down to attempting to pin down the blame for whatever mess is the currently popularized one.
Whose Mess Is It?
Of course, if Hillary Clinton manages to secure her installment into the White House as POTUS, she would, as Mr. Dixon so poetically predicts, continue blaming President Bush Jr. for the mess rather than Obama. Such blamecasting would be even prolific if Obama’s seeming preference, the Waba Squaw, Elizabeth Warren gained the Presidency.
Mr. Dixon is also completely right in his prediction that any mess in existence will be the current POTUS’ mess the moment – hopefully for America as a result of 2016 elections – a Republican president takes office. Both the GOP’s disdain for blaming past leaders and the lamestream media’s antipathy for the GOP will ensure that.
Education in America’s lamentable public school system has gone a long way over the last six decades. Sadly, it’s gone a long way away from America and basic, right-thinking morality. Most certainly it is now little more than poorly, if at all, disguised anti-American, Liberal indoctrination of our children.

A current and most egregious case in point is that McKinley Middle School in Washington D.C.’s Northeast curriculum includes some “interesting” homework assignments, especially in what they purport to be their English department.
Directions: Now that we have read about two men of power who abused their power in various ways, we will compare and contrast them and their actions. Please refer to your texts, â€˜Fighting Hitler â€” A Holocaust Storyâ€™ and â€˜Bush: Iraq War Justified Despite No WMDâ€™ to compare and contrast former President George W. Bush and Hitler. We will use this in class tomorrow for an activity!
Bear in mind that this was a 6th grade English class’ homework assignment. It was neither a class filled with more mature students nor was it a class on Social Studies. Yet the class’ teacher, who McKinley Middle School and the school district refuse to identify, felt that was both needful and appropriate to have the class compare and contrast President George W. Bush with Hitler, all the while tacitly and implicitly comparing the Iraq War with The Holocaust.
Yeah, education in America’s lamentable public school system has gone a long way over the last six decades. 🙁
