    As BO finds himself needing to turn his farewell foreign victory tour into a save face campaign it's a good time to reflect on his actual legacy.
    Race relations as bad as I can recall in 50 years.
    He lost Congress in dramatic fashion.
    His wreckless and illegal refusal to enforce immigration law has forced an equally aggressive response to clean that mess up.
    His idiotic environment polices cost jobs, escalated energy costs which hurt the poor and accomplished nothing but to enrich his friends.
    His childlike foreign policy has rendered us an international bad joke, made a terrible situation in the middle east dramatically worse, enabled PRC to rival us as an economy and force in geopolitics. To name a few things.
    His relentless pursuit of antibusiness regulation has made for the worst recovery in memory.
    And his namesake accomplishment will be repealed immediately after he returns to private life.
    But he does get to be a black president. I hope it was worth it to those who voted for him. Pretty huge price tag for it. tem trillion or more that we know of.
    I suppose you could say it took that to make the people realize they had to take the country back from a corrupt establishment and that is importent.
    It's been a costly lesson to learn that eternal vigilance is the cost of freedom.

    So now what for the left ?

    Some want to go farther left by coalescing around the muslim socialist Ellison. Others want to kill white pepole just because (thank Soros for buying those goons). And the rest are totally at sea.

    And there is no clear leadership to pick up the pieces. Sucks to be them.

    Let me rephrase, publicly stating we will not only will we not enforce immigration laws but specifically encourage and abet this criminal behavior.
    That was invented by BO.

    What criminal behaviour? Your hatred is an example of why the country has failed in so many different ways over the past 30 years. If there was anything decent about the country your kind have made sure to destroy it. Bush never enforced immigration laws. In fact, have you heard of DACA, or the Wilbetforce Trafficking Laws? Someday you might even grow a brain which with you might learn something:

    Trump does nothing big. He sells his name to others, and they do the "big". Trump is run by his children as evidenced of how they took away his twitter the last e=weeks of the campaign. I remember when Clinton was elected and the rallying cry for the right was "two for the price of one". Now you have 4 for the price of one.

    As to the protestors, he gave them nothing. Hell, the coward barely speaks of it. And he sure as hell ain't going to go out into the midst of them with, or without, a gun.


    Then too, I wonder how many millions he is going to make for his "blind trust" while President. Cheney made billions for Halliburton, Gore made billions for Occidental Oil,

    No your wrong again, people with nothing to fear sleep that way.. people who aren't angry at the world sleep that way, people who are at peace sleep that way. people who look for the best in others sleep that way, and I sleep that way.. But if your right.. there are more than a few politicians who sleep that way..

    Where the Democrats aren't quite getting it right now is they believe that they are going to get a typical "bounce-back" in congressional seats in 2018. They will not, in fact, it will get worse for them as Trump continues to do a magnificent job for all Americans.

    I'm predicting the Republicans will gain seats in the Senate and the House in the 2018 mid-terms, and it's an easy call. The 2020 elections could turn out to be an absolute massacre for the Democratic Party if they don't change their far leftist ways, which they don't appear to wish to do. The Democratic Party may get to the point in American politics down the road, whereby the Libertarian Party has more power than them.

    They have consistant list ground and had many of their pols retire in the process. Doing more of the same and expecting a different outcome is a losing proposition.

    We just elected a Democrat posing as a Republican, and now we expect him to fix everything and make America great again. For some reason, his supporters expect a big shift to the "right", whatever that means.

    America is already great.

    Let's just hope he doesn't mess things up too badly. I'm beginning to be more optimistic as he backs off of most of his agenda.

    Hillary won't be prosecuted.
    The wall won't be build (he hasn't said that yet, but it's coming)
    11 million people won't be deported.
    The ACA won't be repealed.

    America will continue to be great, but its president will be seen as a buffoon by most of the rest of the world.

    Consumer confidence soaring, Dow setting records, world leaders beating a path to his door and he's not even been sworn in.
    Hrc ? Too early to say. Remember it's not his decision.
    Wall ? Too early to say.
    11 shown the door ? Never was that. Criminals about 2m. Well see who else.
    ACA ? It's going away. Some aspects may survive.
