The Obama Era is Over

Via John

Image result for Obama once thought that he belonged to the ages. Now he belongs in the rubbish bin.

Obama and his supporters loved talking about history. His victory was historic. They were on the right side of history. History was an inevitable arc that bent their way.

The tidal force of demographics had made the old America irrelevant. Any progressive policy agenda was now possible because we were no longer America. We Were Obamerica. A hip, happening place full of smiling gay couples, Muslim women in hijabs and transgender actors. We were all going to live in a New York City coffee house and work at Green Jobs and live in the post-national future.

The past was gone. We were falling into the gorgeous wonderful future of dot com instant deliveries and outsourced everything. We would become more tolerant and guilty. The future was Amazon and Disney. It was hot and cold running social justice. The Bill of Rights was done. Ending the First and Second Amendments was just a clever campaign away. Narratives on news sites drove everything.

  1. Obama is not going for the Supreme Court. I think given his track record, he is a shoe in for applying for a position for the U.N. (just like Daddy Obama). Pushing Green energy - Climate Change - Gun Control - its all there in his application. He is ready to move from U.S., I'd bet the farm on it.
