As much of the world knows, current U.S. president, Barack Obama, boasted on CNN's The Axe Files" podcast that if he could have run for a third term he would have won. Here is the podcast transcript.
Well, I have a hunch that Michelle Obama might have won had she run. Here are some of the reasons why.
Donald Trump turned to his Twitter account to deliver a smackdown on Barack's contention. Here you can read the Daily Mail coverage the Drudge Report links to.
Among Trump's knockout punches are:
Lack of good jobs. Too many of them have been moved overseas or have been lost to technology. Even The Professional Class has experienced this economic blow. No wonder Trump is keeping Silicon Valley on a short leash.
Growth of ISIS. It seems the U.S. hasn't been able to understand the terrorists' guerrilla mindset. That was obvious on 9/11. It should scare us more even now. Those guys play by different rules.
Out-of-reach costs of Obamacare. Talk to those who don't have employer-funded (even partially) medical insurance and aren't on Medicaid or Medicare. The initial cost and the deductible aren't affordable for the Middle Class, never mind those working and being paid just above the poverty level.
UN resolution against Israel. Obama didn't cast a veto that some lands Israel are settling represents illegal acts. Trump is pushing back, as if he were already U.S. president. That has created the perception of America being headed by 2 presidents. Not a positive development for the current one.
Machiavelli might have said, "Not so fast. This guy with the funny hair wouldn't need me as a consultant."
If Obama wants to preserve his legacy, he should lay low. Turn over the good-byes to Michelle.
