Obama in the Mirror

The Obamas must surely be forgiven their emotions as they pack up to leave the White House after eight years of living there.

But Barack Obama is not prepared to go quietly into that sweet night.

Aware that his legacy is in the toilet, as confirmed by the results of the 2016 election not to mention the facts, BO has engaged in some truly remarkable last-gasp moves. Most remarkable is his commutation of the sentence of admitted traitor Chelsea Manning, about which I have blogged elsewhere.

When I think of Obama it brings to mind a homely woman who carries around her photophone as a growth, clicking away more or less continually in the hope that, if only because of the law of averages, a flattering picture will emerge. It’s really quite sad, but thankfully, as of Friday of no consequence.

Barack and Michelle Obama served faithfully and brought dignity and joy to the White House.  IF he could have run for a third term, I expect that he would have been re-elected.  BTW: General Petraeus leaked far more secret documents to his journalist mistress and didn't serve a day in jail: Petraeus plea deal shows bizarre double standard

"IF he could have run for a third term, I expect that he would have been re-elected."

"That is clearly a metaphysical speculation, and like all metaphysical speculations, has very little to do with the facts of life as we know them."  Oscar Wilde in The Importance of Being Earnest

The comparison between Man (sic) ning and Petraeus is ludicrous.

I see no harm in in releasing the oddity back to society. Do you, really?

And how about Snowden ... do you think we should bring him home? The NSA debacle/scandal is definitely a black mark on Obama. Snowden, I see as a patriot if ever there was one. Carry on G.
