President's Day Musings

It's Presidents Day.  When I was a kid in grade school, it was a time to think about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.  Pretty simple, non-descript stuff.  You would never compare modern day Presidents with them.

But by the end of 2011, President Obama had characterized himself as one of the top four Presidents in history... behind FDR, Johnson, and Lincoln.  Not a little hubris and ego going on with our current Prez, whose jetsetting ways and ostentatious family vacations paid by the Feds seem to border on that of an entitled Emperor rather than the leader of a democratic republic.

I believe that Obama will go down in history as a scheming ideological opportunist, who squandered the chance to improve race relations in this country by widening the gap and sharpening class divisions through unthinking and non-inclusive policies.  His use of Federal agencies to punish conservative groups will be classified as Nixonian, and his incompetent foreign policy will be compared to Carter.  The ObamaCare debacle will implode under its own weight of bureaucratic incompetence, and whenever people think of FDR, BHO will be the antithesis.

It's too bad.  Not sure what went wrong with him, but he has generated a surge of Black conservative politicians, anxious to correct the legacy of our first Black President.

Maybe that is a good thing.
Happy President's Day.
