The liberal press is all a-twitter about the allegation that our glorious and wise President Obama warned the new guy in town, Donald Trump, against retaining General Flynn on his presidential staff, and then, after Obama was seemingly proven right, Flynn was fired by Trump. The impression given is that Obama tried to steer Trump right but Trump wouldn’t accept the wise council of Obama.
Let’s look at some of Obama’s decisions and see if President Trump should have listened to him:
Obama forced Obamacare on Americans as a national healthcare policy.
Obama promised we could keep our doctor, period.
Obama promised we could keep our plan, period.
Obama promised that we would save at least $2500 annually on insurance, period.
Obama negotiated a worthless, dangerous nuclear deal with Iran.
Obama believed in strategic patience with North Korea.
Obama originated and defended Fast and furious.
Obama imposed harsh combat limits via strict military rules of engagement.
Obama illegally campaigned against our allies in Israel.
Obama prematurely withdrew from Iraq, causing chaos and suffering in the area.
Obama illegally and unconstitutionally ignored immigration laws and opened our borders.
Obama nationalized many local police forces under control of his Justice Department.
Obama thought ISIS was JV status and easily controlled.
Every decision and every policy initiative of Barack Obama was and is defective and deficient and any person of at least average intelligence would reject advice from such a person. I would think less of President Trump if he had accepted Obama’s suggestion about General Flynn and not done the exact opposite. And when one includes into this equation what we now know, that Susan Rice illegally monitored and outed General Flynn via national security tools, we know that Obama and his staff were operating outside the law, again, and that’s the only reason they could have any knowledge of a down-side to General Flynn being part of President Trump’s administration.
And are we to really believe that Barack Obama gave a damn about President Trump staffing his administration with only the best people? Who in their right mind thinks that Obama was really interested in Trump avoiding embarrassment in the future by offering his sage advice about Flynn?
The lying press will take the word of a radical leftist like Obama over the word of a more pro-American, traditional thinker like Donald Trump, and they will pump up Obama’s advice to appear to be supreme knowledge, like word handed down from above.
