Obama's long, long goodbye with dirty looks over his shoulder

Ever notice Obama has a "tell" when he is irritated by an interviewer's question? His reply begins with "Look. . .  "


J. Marsolo: Obama: Limbaugh and Fox News ruined my presidency
. . . "Thus, Hillary would have won but for Putin, and Obama would have been successful but for Limbaugh and Hannity.  It is never the fault of Obama.
"In addition to lying, Obama believes that his way is the only correct way.  If you disagree with him, then you must have been influenced by Limbaugh and Hannity, who should not have criticized Obama.  This view is an implicit attack on the First Amendment, which protects our right to disagree and criticize the government and the right of a free press to criticize the president.
"Obama is essentially saying that Limbaugh and Hannity should not criticize him because he knows what is best for our country.  This is the mentality of a totalitarian."

Obama's cheap shot against Cubans  . . . "President Trump needs to take a hard look at this Cuba deal and demand change on the island.  We are not calling for another round of "sí se puede" speeches or "hope and change." We are talking about the kind of change that recognizes that the Castro regime is the reason these Cubans want to get out."

Barack Obama’s Deplorable Race Relations Legacy  . . . "The time has also come for rest of the nation to stop being cowed by the likes of Obama, the race hustlers and social justice warriors out to foment discontent and upheaval.  That they need to ostracize and publicly denigrate those who would use their fellow citizens as hostages in their cynical games.  And, that the white population must join with African-Americans of good will to stamp out the last remaining vestiges of institutionalized racism and discrimination."


Obama Must Have His Applause — Please (Don’t) Clap  . . . "President Obama must have his applause. He got plenty during his recent speech in Chicago, clearly basking in it even as he joked about his lame-duck inability to command an end to the public adulation of his semi-divine person. . . .  a group of self-abasing would-be subjects — there may end up being thousands of them — plan to gather down the street from the White House and applaud. Obama will not be there, but mere mention of his name, even in his absence, will trigger fanatical applause.

Newsweek’s Thomas: ‘Slightly Creepy Cult of Personality’ Around Obama  From 2008: . . . "[H]ave you ever seen a victory speech where there was no one else on stage? No adoring wife, no cute kid. . . "There is a slightly creepy cult of personality about all of this." Rose confronted him on his use of this phrase, and he explained that it made him "a little uneasy that he's so singular. He's clearly managing his own spectacle. He knows how to do it. He's a -- I think, a deeply manipulative guy..." Later, all three marveled about how it was "amazing" that Obama "watches us watching him."
