Obama warns against ‘a crude sort of nationalism’ taking root in the U.S.



Washington Post: “President Obama warned Tuesday that Americans and people around the world “are going to have to guard against a rise in a crude sort of nationalism, or ethnic identity, or tribalism” taking root amid the populist movements that are gaining currency around the world.”

Opinion: It began with this:

“The journey will be difficult. The road will be long. I face this challenge with profound humility, and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people. Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment – this was the time – when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals. Thank you, God Bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America.”

The so-called messiah would make grown-ups weep, women faint, and children stare in amazement.

I feel no sympathy for his failed legacy. No pity that if Donald Trump does what he said he would do that the Obama presidency will be remembered as the one that started monumental racial strife, part-time jobs, men in women’s bathrooms, and an economy so poor that the government had to change the way GDP growth is calculated.

Obama should be remembered as the president that took extravagant vacations while crippling middle-class families with exploding costs of healthcare, killing job growth with tens of thousands of burdensome regulations on small businesses, bringing the Muslim Brotherhood (Hamas) into the White House, ISIS in to Iraq, and treating Israel’s prime minister as an enemy.

A presidency of zero accomplishment in American history.

Go home now, Barry.
