Watching the left make fools of themselves used to be funny. I don’t think it is anymore. Partly because I think that they are so far out in left field, they not only have left the stadium, they’ve left the parking lot, and the city the stadium is in. It’s not funny because most of these people actually are starting to believe the garbage they are spewing.
There are some funny things left to chuckle about, however.
Rachel Maddow, the host on the little-watched MSNBC, and the only reason that network can still pay its electric bill, came out two days before the June job numbers and said, “It’s going to be terrible!” It wasn’t. In fact, more jobs were added in June 2020 than any other month in the history of our country. She didn’t smirk when that came out.
But the one that got me, the one that almost made me vomit was Don Lemon of CNN. His idea to “keep” Mount Rushmore, and make it acceptable to blacks, though I doubt it would matter much to the Native American population in the Black Hills, is to add the face of one Bobo Obama to the mix. So, you’d have George Washington, the father of our country; Abraham Lincoln, the great emancipator, Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence, Theodore Roosevelt, who happened to be president when the OK was given to build the monument, and Bobo Obama who….who….who…who served two terms? I mean, other than making pre-existing conditions illegal in Obamacare, can anyone name one accomplishment that is universally hailed during his administration? No, I’m not counting giving an otherwise unemployable Hillary Clinton a job. I don’t want to count the 38 scandals his administration was embroiled in. I can’t count the Trans-Pacific Partnership since that never really took hold. His Supreme Court nominees have been a bust. Obamacare (other than the pre-existing condition which actually was a good idea) was an abortion. Renaming Mt. McKinley, as Mt. Denali wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t called for. No, I can’t recall anything good that Obama did that still exists today! It’s like he never existed as president.
So, why does Don Lemon want to put his mug on a mountain? Is it because Lemon realizes that if you take Obama out of the picture, the last Democrat president that actually did something that meant something was Lyndon Johnson? I mean, he did the whole civil rights thing, and that was OK. He did the “war on poverty”, and that was an expensive boondoggle that’s wasted over $20 TRILLION. You can go back to JFK and you get the whole Bay of Pigs thing, which wasn’t very good. You got the Russian missile crisis, which turned out alright.
Don Lemon HAD to include Obama, not because he’s black, but because frankly, he’s the only Democrat in about the last 50 years that managed to do one thing that was positive. And he did do ONE thing. The rest of the time he was out playing golf or shooting hoops. Nothing else from his presidency really stands. OK, I guess you’ve still got DACA, but that’s being torn down as soon as John Roberts wakes up from hitting his head last month.
Sorry, Don. We reserve Mount Rushmore for either the creme de la creme of presidents or the guy that actually approved the project. Your guy fits neither category. In fact, he probably ranks with Jimmy Carter and Millard Filmore at the bottom of the list. Nice try though!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
