The Left and former President Obama - Trump Era

Guardian: Reports on President Obama's speaking fees after the White House, " 

Barack Obama's $400,000 speaking fees reveal what few want to admit...The high-paid speeches were a sign that Obama’s post-presidency will, like his presidency was, be Democratic business as usual. And that means not radically altering the racial injustices of American economics. "

Lets Get Real:

The US/UK left want President Obama to be a Saint, they should recall that he was a Chicago Pol who go lucky in 2008, the banking Industry went off a cliff, and that was the wise view of VP Biden, at least he was honest about the election victory, it was nothing more or less.  A former President like anyone elses has to buy his bills, and Obama has been wiser that President Carter, after leaving office in 1980 Carter stated that he would not serve on boards as former Presidents had done, thus Carter has written numerous books, some that have gotten him to trouble in Israel.   President Obama served his nation with honour and was a symbol for African - Americans as to what they could achieve.   After those years he should be allowed to earn what he wants, the left are looking for a Saint, no man is that, even President Obama never reached those heights. 

Hillary Clinton and that LOSING feeling - Trump Era

Lets Get Real:

It was the most shocking ending to a Presidential election since 2000, the candidate that was suppose to win for the 2nd time had lost the election to a businessman who was loathed by half of the Country, just not as loathed as Hillary Clinton was 2016.  The experts the bloggers ALL had HRC winning, the polls had her winning every time.   In the end the US voter decided to shock the press, political elite and elected President Trump.  Of course there was the rumour that HRC would try for Mayor of New York, that would have been 100% election win, but after you lose the Presidency twice, once to Obama now Trump it must be hard to think that Mayor of New York would be the solution, you would be held by New Yorkers to make sure their bins were emptied, it hardly having the nuclear suitcase by you at all time.   The question is what now for HRC, could she run again in 2020, it would be tall order, and there is saying in US politics that there are no third acts in a political career. This blog would not count HRC out, after all we have a Trump Presidency.

POTUS could meet Kim Jong - un - Trump Era

Lets Get Real:

The above sends out the WRONG message, a meeting between a President of the United States and a blood stained Regime of Kim Jong - un would carry the same weight as when Neville Chamberlain meet Hitler to appease him at Munich in 1938, it should be noted that President Obama said when he was a candidate that he would meet the worse Dictators, on the whole when in Office, Obama avoided such encounters, even if he did go to Cuba and set up a US Embassy.   One can only hope that State and Defence have the influence to prevent such foolish meetings, the only way it could happen is if North Korea gave up ALL of its nuclear ambitions and nuclear material, also its ICBM's.    Then it could be argued that it should only be considered.
