The Shameless Survivor

Obama - The Shameless Survivor
Obama – The Shameless Survivor

I was just going to allow Obama to shuffle off into the sunset, as most ex-POTUS’s are both allowed to- and encouraged to fade into obscurity. I can’t quite do that yet though. One last thing needs to be brought up about Obama and his “legacy.” That is the fact the he could almost be considered the sole survivor of the Democrat party and he seem utterly unconcerned by that fact or the fact that he is a large part of why the Democrats are effectively an endangered species in elected office today.

Politically speaking, the legacy of Obama is that, largely as a reaction to Obama and the Dems’ slavish devotion to him, the Democrat party has lost between 1,100 and 1,200 seats in local, county, state, and federal governments. It can at this point be argued that they’re done, over, kaput.

But hey! Obama got elected and got reelected. He wasn’t a One-Term failure and that’s all that matters, right?

Ooh You Almost Had It

Oooh You Almost Had It, Hillary
Ooh You Almost Had It

OK, I’m not going to gloat for too long or too much over Trump’s triumph over Hillary. That being said, this meme was just too funny not to use. 😆
