Report card on the Obama years and the arrogance of it all

Have you noticed when a Democrat and a Conservative are introduced by a news host via a split screen, the liberal usually has a smirk?

Why Did Trump Win? Obama  "Donald Trump's upset victory is being attributed to many factors, from Hillary Clinton being a corrupt and flawed candidate to the rise of the angry white male.  Never mind that Trump secured more white women support than did Clinton.  Maybe it was due to the FBI investigations and Director Comey's schizophrenic opening and closing the investigations.  Maybe it was Anthony Weiner entering the race with State Department emails on his laptop.  Or the endless WikiLeaks revelations.
"What really gave Trump his victory is one person: Barack Obama.  This election was nothing less than a complete and total repudiation of his presidency, his policies, his "fundamental transformation of America" that he promised and delivered." . . .
Remember this? President Obama to Republicans: I won. Deal with it.

Next: Arrogance and condescension made manifest:

An Arrogant and Lazy Presidency  "It's safe to say that there has rarely, if ever, been a president more absolutely sure of the utter and total correctness of his positions than Barack Obama.  While outward humility and the intentional display of human hesitation have long been staple behavioral facets of virtually every first-rate high-level communicator as he tries to connect with (and win the support of) his constituency when making difficult decisions, words such as "I've really struggled with this" or "I've thought long and hard about this one" seldom seem to emanate from President Obama's lips.  Instead, complete self-assuredness bordering on smug, condescending arrogance has been the hallmark of his demeanor." . . .  As shown in the clip above.

But O will continue to be a thorn in the side of Republicans
I have little doubt that Ex-President Obama will be able to command the nation’s airwaves in retirement.  He will be angry, and when he gets angry, sometimes he loses his cool just a little bit and gets downright mean and snarky.  He loves put-downs.
But he will be facing President Trump, who has not shown himself shy about responding to critics, especially those who get under his skin.
