Michael Goodwin sums up the Obama years:


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.

It was supposed to sit atop the national power pyramid for decades, a new paradigm of liberals, progressives, the young, the old, the unions and blacks, Latinos, Muslims and Asians.

The torch would be passed from Obama to Clinton, a liberal Supreme Court would vastly expand executive power and the regulatory state would enforce climate-change orthodoxy on all industry and elitist dictates on every American. Globalism would be the new patriotism.

But a funny thing happened on the way to one-party dominance: The people who work for a living said no, hell no. Their revolt brings Donald Trump to the White House amid hopes of a revival of the economy and of the American spirit.

Thoroughly beaten, the Dems are at their lowest point in nearly a century. From the White House to Congress to statehouses, they are on the outside looking in.

Go here to read the rest.  Of course all the Democrats need to come roaring back is for Trump to fail as badly as Obama did.

  1. Outstanding! Let’s hear it for schadenfreude. Next target, Pope Francis.

    Most so called liberals will go along with the Trump agenda because if nothing else it’s a winning combination and there’s money in it. Only the die-hards will resist the Trump agenda. What Liberals have for sale is disunity, distrust, and dis-ingenuousness. The dogs don’t want it, won’t eat it.

  2. Cenk Uygur has the worst traits of a partisan combined with the worst traits of a lawyer. He will argue any position if it protects his side. He’d stop mid-sentence and switch positions, Ministry of Truth style, if it were required of him. And since he doesn’t have a point to make, he’s always attacking his enemies.
