Obama 2.0 in 2020?

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - BERNARD L. MORN­INGSTAR Ijamsville, Mary­land

I am giddy over the prospect of Michelle Obama be­com­ing the Demo­cratic Party’s nom­i­nee for pres­i­dent in 2020. In all my 80 years of life, never be­fore has there been a more qual­i­fied in­di­vid­ual for that role — if the aim is to com­pound the dam­age done by Pres­i­dent Barack Obama.

As the party’s nom­i­nee, I’m sure Mrs. Obama could once again be “proud of” her coun­try (be­cause, ac­cord­ing to her, she wasn’t proud of it un­til her hus­band be­came pres­i­dent). And as far as qual­i­fi­ca­tions are con­cerned, she learned much as first lady. She learned, for ex­am­ple, that the Amer­i­can peo­ple should “get off their high horse,” bow to Is­lamic po­ten­tates, apol­o­gize for their coun­try’s past trans­gres­sions and prom­ise never to do them again. She also learned that Is­lam was a ma­jor con­trib­u­tor to the laws and cul­ture of the United States, and with­out them we would likely have never ad­vanced sci­en­tif­i­cally, morally or cul­tur­ally.

Thanks to Mrs. Obama’s hus­band, we know that if you have a suc­cess­ful business, “you didn’t build that” — some­one else did. And also re­mem­ber, it’s bet­ter to “lead from be­hind” (though what he did seemed more like lead­ing from his be­hind). Also un­der the tute­lage of her hus­band, Mrs. Obama also learned the im­por­tance of thwart­ing de­vel­op­ment of Amer­i­can en­ergy in­de­pen­dence, rais­ing taxes and in­creas­ing reg­u­la­tion so as to shut down and drive Amer­i­can busi­nesses to other coun­tries. She learned putting peo­ple out of work and mak­ing them de­pen­dent on wel­fare is good for her party. And don’t for­get that arm­ing the Mex­i­can drug car­tels, sup­ply­ing Rus­sia with ura­nium and keep­ing U.S. bor­ders wide open are good things.
