There’s never been a presidential family that has committed itself so totally and unequivocally in favor of their party’s presidential contender and, in Donald Trump’s case, against the rival party’s candidate. Such unequivocal intervention used to be considered unseemly and unpresidential, but like many other things that have changed since Trump appeared on the scene, the rules of presidential etiquette have been thrown out the window as well. Two weeks before his successor is chosen, less than three months before he finally leaves the White House, Obama is pulling out all the stops and going for broke. He doesn’t look or sound like a president whose time has come but like an ambitious politician who’s fighting for his own future.
Yes, I do believe that Obama is enjoying a measure of revenge against Republicans. Even though Obama ran hard against Hillary during his own election, now he seems to be enjoying campaigning on her behalf to help the Democrats win the White House once again. He seems to be spending what is left of his Presidency working on her behalf.
Yes, Barack Obama is enjoying a measure of revenge against Republicans and rightfully so. Throughout his time in office, Obama has constantly been targeted by Republicans. They simply do not like his ideas because they come from him. They have blocked his legislation, and now it is time for him to sit back and watch the party implode.
The Republicans have made it very difficult for Barack Obama to get anything done while he has been in office. The downfall of their party is Donald Trump. I do not think Obama is enjoying any revenge against Republicans. I think he is embarrassed for our country. He has handled himself with great poise, even while Trump has been slinging mud at him. He is far too classy to be reveling in the downfall of the Republican Party.
