Barack Obama tried to lay the groundwork for not being a complete failure in the War on Terror yesterday by giving a long, winding speech about how his brand of letting other countries fight terror on their own was the way to making America Safe Again.
Obama had no qualms about trashing George W. Bush for years after being elected in order to deflect from his own failures. The chickens have come home to roost. Donald Trump is already working on dismantling the Obama error and he has no problem will calling out a presidential predecessor, specific politicians, world leaders or companies that won’t play ball.
It was obvious to me that Obama was more interested in enacting policy than leaving a legacy. Unfortunately for him, much of his legacy came by one-party legislation and Executive Orders. Donald Trump can dismantle that machine with great speed. All that’s left for Obama is to be a former president who tries to trash the current president.
