America’s fantasy president

Obama must truly think there are people who actually respect anything he says or does. Here we have Obama Already Out of Retirement: Ex-president gives successor exactly 10 days before making public criticism. You can read the vapid nonsense that is coming from Obama at the link. Here is some commentary on how dull-witted all of it is.

Michael Johns, who served as a speechwriter in the administration of George H.W. Bush, said it is unseemly for Obama to criticize his successor.

“This is entirely unprecedented in modern presidential politics and violates the unstated decorum that generally has governed the conduct of presidents after leaving office,” said Johns, who president and executive director of Tea Party Community. “Everything Trump has done in the first week is truly consistent with what he promised he would do.”

Mark Krikorian, executive director of the of the Center for Immigration Studies, said he figured Obama would be “psychologically incapable” of staying quiet during the Trump administration.

“It doesn’t surprise me at all,” he said. “I’m surprised it took him so long.”

Krikorian said Obama seems poised to be the “fantasy president” for people who supported Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Johns said he was taken aback the ferocity of the response to what amounts to a short-term pause in travel from some of the most dangerous countries on earth.

The response is so ferocious because the left understands that if Trump succeeds, Republicans will be the natural party of government as far as the eye can see. The stakes are high, and while Trump remains ahead, it is still early days. But it remains as true now as it was at the start that no one on the right side of the ledger could have withstood all of this, done so much and still have remained viable.
