Obama is doing everything he can to make things hard for Trump

The most telling hot-mic moment of Barack Obama’s presidency came in March 2012 when he told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev: “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”

The topic then was missile defense, but America and the world now see the full ramifications. Whether it’s dusting off an obscure provision to block oil drilling or using the United Nations to betray Israel, this is what maximum flexibility looks like. This is Obama being Obama.

Liberated from the pretense of respecting public consent and no longer forced to calculate the impact on Hillary Clinton’s campaign, Obama is rushing to settle scores and tie Donald Trump’s hands. It is an infuriating exit.

It is also a revealing one. The last-ditch actions help explain not only why Trump won, but also why a course correction was absolutely necessary for the nation. Obama’s cynical schemes are variations of “you can keep your doctor,” and Americans were right to show Democrats the door.

It’s also worth remembering that Obama promised to have Israel’s back, and that’s where he put the knife.

Great article. This is the number one reason I voted for Trump: he was the outsider who promised to shake things up. The liberal elites almost pulled it off, taking over our country for good. Just think how many new voters they would have added to their electorate by NOT building a wall or vetting Syrians and keeping people on government assistance. It was all one big socialist plot, designed by Giorgy Soros.
I am going to Pennsylvania Avenue Jan 20 just to see Marine One take off with the Obama's in it one last f**ing time. It will be the beginning of the rise of our country again that has been decimated over the last 8 years.

He's been doing that for 8 years now! But, as hard as he has worked to get his way Trump will work harder to undo all of it!

Why should Obama leave on Marine one? His new digs are only 20 blocks away.
