What a contrast, right?
At the same time President Trump was stumbling through his post-game presser with Putin which necessitated a next-day contraction retraction, former President Obama was in South Africa treating the world to his soaring rhetoric thereby reminding us how good we had it.
That’s the DC press corps’ version of events.
Unfortunately for Democrats, Obama’s tawdry sentimentality and Life’s Little Instruction Book maxims hold up about as well over time as do his policies.
Obama got away with congenial disdain for the Bible-and-gun clingers but his political progeny—not to mention his administration’s apparatchiks—are not nearly as adroit.
Obama’s veiled invective is weak tea compared to his former CIA Director’s call for a firing squad.
Obama’s cliché-ridden claptrap lacks the appeal of Adam Schiff’s Manchurian Candidate conspiracy theories or a Business Insider deep dive on bugging soccer balls.
Obama served as a veneer for the Left’s ugliness.
Trump has unleashed it and marginalized Obama as a political asset in the process.
Now Trump leads the Left’s parade of horribles around by their P-hats in full public view.
It’s messy. And Trump is sloppy. But, like the 1983 Chicago White Sox, Trump is Winning Ugly.
