Yesterday, we began to look at what former President Barack Obama was doing now that he is not in office. This kind of piece would normally be a boring look at a man who had reached the pinnacle of political life in America. We all remember the reports that showed Reagan on his ranch, living a permanent vacation at the tax payers expense.
This is far from what we see the Obamas doing. This is not something that I would hope we would be paying for, but what he is actually doing is worse than getting paid for nothing. But, who would have believed that a former president would be inciting sedition?
The NY Post reports
[Obama’s] working behind the scenes to set up what will effectively be a shadow government to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular “America First” agenda.
He’s doing it through a network of leftist nonprofits led by Organizing for Action. Normally you’d expect an organization set up to support a politician and his agenda to close up shop after that candidate leaves office, but not Obama’s OFA. Rather, it’s gearing up for battle, with a growing war chest and more than 250 offices across the country.
Since Donald Trump’s election, this little-known but well-funded protesting arm has beefed up staff and ramped up recruitment of young liberal activists, declaring on its website, “We’re not backing down.” Determined to salvage Obama’s legacy, it’s drawing battle lines on immigration, ObamaCare, race relations and climate change.
All of this would be the most important parts of Obama’s legacy. This legacy is the socialist underpinnings of the “Fundamental Transformation,” which Obama had promised eight years ago. The very things which Trump promised to get rid of are the things Obama is seeking to preserve.
Once again, Obama shows that he either thinks he knows better than you and is an elitist or he just does not care about the voice of the people he was supposed to be serving for eight years.
