Yes, it’s an old cartoon – but it’s never been truer.
Although Barack Obama has only days left in office, he’s doing his best to make every one of them count…in the worst possible ways. As a case in point, witness his almost unbelievable betrayal of Israel by failing to prevent the passage of a U.N. resolution which will do grave damage to our (ahem) former ally for years to come.
Even worse, Israel claims to have evidence that the Obama administration actually helped draft this sneak attack on Israel – clearly missing any moral insight from the recent visit of Japan’s prime minister to Pearl Harbor.
Also in his busy, busy schedule, the president has been releasing prisoners from jail faster than Henry Ford churned out model-T’s, recently setting a new record by granting 231 pardons in a single day – which is perhaps only a warm-up for setting more felons free in the coming weeks. But at least he’s not dumping dangerous prisoners from Guantanamo on the world, right? Wrong! He’s taking steps to transfer up to 18 more detainees before Trump takes office (only 4.5 of whom will return to battlefield mayhem and active terrorism, according to the government’s own statistics).
But wait – there’s more! To help assure that US relations with Russia are as bad as possible on his way out, Obama is about to announce plans to “punish” Russia for their alleged (yet entirely unsubstantiated) role in telling voters the truth about Hillary Clinton, thereby upsetting our precious national system of basing elections on catchphrases, lies, and genitalia. The president’s retaliatory arsenal is said to include various harsh sanctions and “cyber-operations,” including forcing Russians to use the Healthcare.gov website to get medical treatment.
Besides all of this active sabotage of the incoming Trump administration, Barry is also spending the waning days of his presidency ingesting large quantities of hallucinogens (perhaps with buddies from his Hawaiian “choom gang”). How else to explain his recent declaration that, had be been allowed to run again, he would have won a third term by beating Donald Trump.
Not because of any actual accomplishments, of course, but because “in conversations that I’ve had with people around the country – even some people who disagreed with me – they would say, ‘The vision, the direction that you point towards is the right one.'”
That direction, by the way, remains unchanged after 8 years…although we’re still unsure if it points to Mecca or Hell.
