The Obama's Last Days....I guess

Image result for obama's presidency cartoons

Obama grants 153 commutations, 78 pardons  . . . "The president has now commuted the sentences of 1,176 individuals, including 395 life sentences. 
"White House counsel Neil Eggleston said the move signifies Obama's "continued commitment to exercising his clemency authority through the remainder of his time in office.". . . 
. . . "Of the 153 individuals granted a shorter prison sentence, most were sentenced for non-violent drug-related crimes. However, 42 had a firearm-related offense as well, such as "use of a firearm in relation to a drug trafficking offense.' " . . .
When it’s not President Barack Obama showing that he’s a sore loser with his snide remarks, it’s his wife Michelle.  . . . "With Barack and Michelle Obama tearing this country to shreds to serve their own personal agendas, there’s really no questioning how the sore losers would handle a Donald Trump win. However, to pretend that you want hope immediately after stomping on it by saying something like this election was “painful” isn’t really fooling anyone. Now, we can officially say that the Obamas have gone out just the way they governed – in a sad and pathetically petty manner." . . .Michelle Obama Looking Forward to Getting Her Anonymity Back.

Political Cartoons by Mike Lester
. . . "A friend of mine once observed that humility is so light a grace that once you think you have attained it, you’ve lost it. Humility is the polar opposite of what Michelle Obama displayed to Oprah and what the president has mirrored during his eight years in office. Throughout his presidency, you might have thought the pronoun “I” was his first initial for all the times he referred to himself.
"The Obamas could have offered real hope, especially in the hearts of African-American children, by leading the poor among them out of failing inner-city schools and giving their parents a choice of where to send them for a better education, which would have led to a better life. They rightly sent their daughters to elite private schools, rather than bad D.C. Public Schools, but denied that choice to those less affluent, thus perpetuating a spirit of hopelessness in those voters who had hoped for something beyond a “let’s move” exercise program and a vegetable garden on the White House lawn."

Time to face reality, Obama — Trump is going to be president  . . . "So this is how it ends — in a whimper wrapped in self-pity and recriminations. With President Obama on the defensive at his final press conference and Hillary Clinton’s last campaign event resembling a wake, the Democratic Party is limping off the stage and into the political winter" . . .

Report: Obama intends to transfer more Gitmo detainees before leaving office
"The Obama administration intends to transfer 17 or 18 of the remaining 59 Guantanamo Bay detainees before the president leaves office, the New York Times reported Monday night. " . . .
. . . "If the proposal goes through, Donald Trump would be left to deal with 10 men who were charged or convicted in military commissions, and 27 who were not charged but are deemed to dangerous to release. 
"It is not clear if Trump will refuse to transfer detainees once he takes office. " . . .
