How Hope And Change became Fear And Loathing

Back in 2008 when Barack Obama was running round the country yelling Hope And Change, Yes We Can and promising he would be the peacemaker and joybringer who parted the seething waters of reality and lead his followers to a promised land of equality and multiculturalism where they would drink from a wellsping of human rights, I warned it was unwise to set expectations too high. A trawl round the dark web (it's not all goat porn and IED making instructions) unearthed stuff mainstream media would never print and Obama supporters would never believe. And yet if Obama had nothing to hide he would not have ordered that all records relating to his past be locked away, would he now?
I was right, far from bringing peace and joy, Obama has pushed the world to the brink of war and irredeemably divided his country.
I have written enough on Obama's failed presidency over the years, the excellent P. J. O'Rourke was absolutely right when he said in December 2007, a month before Obama was sworn in, it was not too early too talk of a failed presidency. Obama's arrogance, hubris and inability to learn from mistakes had doomed both him and the USA to a spiral of decline.

But as I said, I have written enough, some stupid people will continue to say Obama has been a great president, a claim they can only back by pointing to the colour of his skin. Below is an article from the New York Post looks at Obama's domestic failures.

Obama’s ‘hope and change’ has given us ‘fear and loathing’ The New York Post



Obama Has been An Inspirational President?Well He Probably Inspired More Suicides Than Any Other
Obama’s greatest achievement perhaps it to have put Donald Trump in The White House. Whether you think this is a good or bad thing depends on your political stance. This blog is neutral, our view being that Trump can’t be a worse president than any of the three that preceded him.
