Our friend and provocateur Joe “the Plumber” Wurzelbacher has written an excellent and thoughtful piece at his site – Joe for America – about how historians will judge President Barack Obama. Here’s a hint, it won’t be with a kind eye and a soft heart. Obama’s done enough damage in 6 years that he’s softened our perspective on Jimmy Carter and even President George W. Bush has seen his approval ratings skyrocket. Obama’s real legacy will be reminding us that things can always be worse…
Seriously, When historians take a step back and review the time of President Barack Obama with an unbiased eye – they will say, “Damn Americans were really stupid back then!”
Will historians lament; “How did it happen? It couldn’t be because he was black? Please tell me that Americans were smart enough to look at man/character instead of his skin color. Tell me that they didn’t vote this guy in because of this “white guilt” stuff I hear…”
How can Americans vote a leader in to the highest, most honorable of positions based on skin color. Why didn’t they learn his history? Why didn’t they.. well, there’s been more than one leader voted in lawfully whose past should have had some giant red flags.
Yes, way back in the year 2008, the education system in America was corrupt. They rewrote history with political agendas forced on the children from age four and carried all the way through to finish in college. BUT that is still not a good enough reason to vote:
Yes, the media was ridiculous. The news you received was slanted with whatever talking head was reporting it. News was made up for hits and ratings. They had an opinion and fed it to you. BUT that was still not a good enough reason to vote:
Yes, Money was spent by big corporations through lobbyists in a revolving door with politicians going out one way and bribery going in the other. Tons of money from Wall Street to the Unions, with K Street buying politicians to make sure laws were made that favored them. The Unions raped their membership for dues in the pretense of working for them when in reality leadership made damn good money and lived the high life while the workers did the work. BUT that was still not a good enough reason to vote:
