Obama “Rethinking” His Plans to Withdraw from Politics After Trump Victory

No one really thought Jackass Obama was going to step off the stage, did they, Trump victory or not. And he’s “cooking up all kinds of great stuff to do.”

Seriously, he needs to crawl back under the rock he came out from under.

From The New York Times:

President Obama is rethinking his plans to withdraw from the political arena after he leaves office next year, hinting to friends and supporters that he wants to add his voice to the shellshocked Democratic activists and elected officials who are now angrily vowing to oppose Donald J. Trump’s presidency.

White House aides say they expect the president to try to refrain from criticism during the transition because of his belief in the importance of a courteous and dignified transfer of power. But while the president holds out hope that he might influence Mr. Trump, he has made it clear that once out of office he will not remain silent if Mr. Trump goes too far in undoing his legacy.

“I’m going to be constrained in what I do with all of you until I am again a private citizen,” Mr. Obama, who will be living a few miles from the White House next year, told a meeting this past week of Organizing for Action, the group that maintains his political movement. “But that’s not so far off.” …

The mobilization against Mr. Trump began even before his victory was official. At just after midnight on Election Day, panicked immigration rights activists gathered for a conference call to strategize. A few days later, more than 80 representatives of 57 progressive groups convened in the offices of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights in Washington.…

The mood was intense, angry and unforgiving, according to people who attended the confidential organizing session, which included representatives from labor, environmental groups, immigration activists, gay rights and civil rights organizations. Jim Messina, who managed Mr. Obama’s re-election campaign, offered brief remarks at the meeting, cautioning against any attempts to compromise and work with Mr. Trump.

“Push back at every level,” Mr. Messina urged. No one in the room objected, one attendee said.

Gee, it almost sounds like they started scheming to obstruct the newly-elected president without giving him a chance, but that can’t be true. These were the very same people who have spent the last 8 years whining about Republicans getting together on the very day of Obama’s inauguration to figure out how to stop him from getting his policies enacted, so there’s no way they would do that to Donald Trump, is there?

Wait, there’s more:

For Mr. Obama, a return to the partisan fray was never the intention. His library and foundation will serve as a platform for him to travel around the world, confront systemic issues of race relations, and push for technological change aimed at improving society.

But that vision assumed that his presidential legacy would be protected and nurtured by Mrs. Clinton in the Oval Office.

In his remarks to activists, Mr. Obama urged them to stop moping and to ratchet up their opposition to Mr. Trump by Thanksgiving. He promised to join their cause soon after, telling them: “You’re going to see me early next year, and we’re going to be in a position where we can start cooking up all kinds of great stuff to do.”

He has echoed that message in private conversations, making it clear that he may not completely pattern himself after George W. Bush, who almost never criticized his successor. (emphasis mine)

 Right. And I might not completely pattern myself after Kim Kardashian. C’mon, Liberal Death Star. Who do you guys think you are kidding with this crap?

Like me, I’m sure that you can’t wait to see the thin-skinned, petulant, jug-eared Obama summoning his acolytes in the legacy media to lecture them (and us) on how terrible it is to see all the “progress” we made while he was occupying the Oval Office destroyed by Donald Trump and his administration.

We will never be rid of this braying jackass.
