With His Legacy At Risk And Democrats In Disarray Obama Vows To Fight Trump As Private Citizen
It's something that we get a change by the people of this Country and the Disgusting Liberals are the ones doing the protest and Riots courtesy of Soros and Obama and Hillary
In 2008, with Republicans having been handed a massive defeat that resulted in Democrat control of all three branches of government in Washington D.C., George W. Bush decided to do the honorable thing by bowing to the will of the people and vowing not to publicly criticize the new President-elect. Now, 8 years later, President Obama finds himself in the exact same position as the American people have dealt his "legacy" a massive blow by handing Republicans total control of Congress and the White House.
But, unlike Bush, who had the humility to accept the will of the electorate, according to the New York Times, Obama has every intention of sticking around Washington D.C. in his retirement to fight the newly elected president. While White House aides say they expect Obama to try to refrain from criticizing Trump during the transition, Obama himself has indicated that all bets are off once he becomes a "private citizen."
“I’m going to be constrained in what I do with all of you until I am again a private citizen,” Mr. Obama, who will be living a few miles from the White House next year, told a meeting this past week of Organizing for Action, the group that maintains his political movement. “But that’s not so far off.”
For Mr. Obama, a return to the partisan fray was never the intention. His library and foundation will serve as a platform for him to travel around the world, confront systemic issues of race relations, and push for technological change aimed at improving society.
But that vision assumed that his presidential legacy would be protected and nurtured by Mrs. Clinton in the Oval Office.
In his remarks to activists, Mr. Obama urged them to stop moping and to ratchet up their opposition to Mr. Trump by Thanksgiving. He promised to join their cause soon after, telling them: “You’re going to see me early next year, and we’re going to be in a position where we can start cooking up all kinds of great stuff to do.”
He has echoed that message in private conversations, making it clear that he may not completely pattern himself after George W. Bush, who almost never criticized his successor.
One friend of Mr. Obama’s, who requested anonymity to discuss private discussions with the president, said the election results seemed to have made him more willing to remain part of the political debate.
“Everyone he talks to walks away with this impression,” the friend said.
In an interview with The New Yorker this week, Mr. Obama said that if Mrs. Clinton had won the election, he might have just turned over the keys and walked away on Inauguration Day. With Mr. Trump’s victory, he said he felt “some responsibility to at least offer my counsel” to the Democratic Party’s political warriors he leaves behind in Washington.
Why is it just so hard for Democrats to accept the fact that there is an unspoken majority of the American electorate that is unhappy with their leftist policies and Obama's "Hope & Change" farce.
