Yes, it sounds like one of the Star Wars movie title but in my opinion, is a similar event. The “empire” of the Obama Administration is making its limited return to clear the way for Joe Biden to gain the imperial Democratic throne from Barak Obama. By going on the campaign trail over the next few weeks to help his crown prince, the former leader is trying to use his political “magic,” to remind voters of better times.
Sorry, but the Obama years make me cringe. With memories of economic chaos, a failed health care system that was too expensive for the working poor to afford, giving money to Iran so they would sign a deal, a growing racial divide, and ignoring China as they build airstrips and other military fortifications in the contested Spratly Islands (Philippines). Yes, I was in Asia during these times and the absence of US intervention or concern over the illegal escapades of China by the democratic “monarch” and his crown prince (Joe Biden) is almost unforgettable.
How can Barak Obama, a man who did little to help minorities, our economy, the sick, working Americans, or the environment (China, under the Paris Accord, had little regulations). Try living in South Korea or Macau, with terrible yellow sand or heavy air pollution. Thanks to mainland Communist China, people had to wear masks to go outside or risked suffering respiratory illness. One Macau physician told me that most people had breathing difficulties, due to pollution from China. That’s right Barak Obama, your cherished Paris Accords did not hold China as accountable as other nations, ones who polluted far less than the Communist nation.
So, when the former “Emperor” goes about spreading his message of the better times under his and Joe Biden’s years in the White House, remember that those times were not so good domestically or overseas. Oh yes President Barak, thanks for ignoring Isis!
Just my two cents.
