Sad Truth About Obama Presidency Revealed by former Staffer
Barack Obama was the worst president in American history.
That is a cold hard fact the Left spends almost all their time denying. I understand why, as they invested heavily in Obama.
On my radio show and here as well I commented that when Obama realized that he would likely win the election, he panicked. I recall about a week or so before the actual vote, Obama began to level-set expectations. He essentially said to his constituents, “Don’t put all your faith in me, as I’m not perfect.”.
Up to that point, Obama’s mantra was “Change we can believe in!” and he had his idiot followers foaming at the mouth for “change”. They all expected a Swengali-like presidency, where their bills would all be paid, and all their maladies cured.
Obama was elected, and people lived on the afterglow of electing the first black president, feckless though he was. Obama toured the world, continuing rock star status. America’s first president of color only proved how racist the world was to believe this was an impossibility.
But when Obama returned to America, he needed to work. The fear set in, because Obama never learned how to work. He was a “show” leader, not a “do” leader.
His minions did the work, and Obama dutifully followed. As I said many times, Obama loved the perks of the presidency, but not the actual work. He would leave that for his handlers. They rigged the game, so even if Obama broke promises, he was covered.
If you like you plan, you can keep your plan…period!
Things got tough for Obama, despite a fawning media, and a public living on muscle-memory of the historical election.
Massive debt, massive budget, massive unemployment, even with the printing of worthless money.
Imagine if Trump had done what Obama did? The media and public outcry would have been deafening. So when I learned that a former Obama staffer said that Obama was relieved to not be president, I wasn’t surprised in the least.
According to the Washington Examiner,
Former President Barack Obama is reportedly feeling “relieved” that he isn’t saddled with the “burden” of being commander in chief anymore, according to one of his ex-White House press secretaries.
“It’s obvious to most people who are watching that he is relieved to no longer be bearing the burden of the presidency,” Josh Earnest told the Hill in an article published Monday.
“I think there’s no doubt that he is more relaxed and more at ease and more unburdened than he’s been in a decade, and it shows,” Earnest, who started as Obama’s Iowa communications director during the then-candidate’s first presidential campaign, continued.
Dinesh D’Souza perhaps represented the sentiment of the majority of Americans, when he tweeted of the comment:
Not half as relieved as we are

While Earnest said that Obama was relieved to not have the responsibility of being president, you can bet President Trump is honored to have the role.
Obama wanted the “history” of being president, but Trump wanted the job. And the results show. I wrote not long ago of Trump’s Year One prowess:
Nobody thought besting Reagan was even possible. But it just happened.
This news may send people like Bill Kristol into therapy. Nevertheless, the Heritage Foundation rates President Trump’s first year better than Reagan’s.
“The Trump administration has pursued policies that have hewed remarkably close to the recommendations of a leading conservative think tank, the Heritage Foundation, which found in a new review that nearly two-thirds of its ideas had been carried out or embraced by the White House over the past year.
Not one to dwell on the details of governing, President Trump has shown a considerable degree of deference to groups within the conservative movement like Heritage, leading to a rightward shift in social, environmental, immigration and foreign policy.
The results, Heritage found in its review, exceeded even the first year of Ronald Reagan’s presidency, whose tenure has long been the conservative gold standard.”
Certainly Reagan had big issues to overcome, like a fully Democratic legislature. But for those paying attention, so did Trump. Trump went up against not only the Democrats who had the media and celebrities on their side, but also against establishment Republicans and conservative “Never Trumpers.”
Earnest revealed the ugly truth of Obama. Mission accomplished.
Obama was the first black president. And incompetence be damned. Because for Obama, being the first is all that mattered.
