I'll take a crazy idiot over a cool genius

Three days before he left office, the Mirror published an editorial, "Goodbye Obama: 20 reasons Barack Obama is the coolest US President of ALL time and why we miss him already. The 44th US president has been outspoken, generous, humble -- and he can even dribble a basketball, own the dance floor and drop the mic."

Yes, I remember that mic drop. It was in response to Donald John Trump saying Obama would go down as possibly the worst president in history.

Obama sniffed, "At least I'll go down as a president."

Mic drop.

Applause from Jimmy Kimmel's audience.

Two weeks later, tears.

But he was cool.

President Trump is crazy. Everybody tells me so.

And an idiot.

New York magazine tells me so: "Report: Everybody in the White House Considers Trump an Idiot."

But he is not running things.

The Washington Post tells me so: "Trump isn't really running things."

For a crazy idiot who really doesn't run things, President Trump accomplished more than the last four presidents combined.

Just today, new claims for unemployment fell to a 49-year low. The population increased 61% in that time.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 256 points the day after the election, which was supposed to go to Hillary.

The average is up 40% in less than two years.

Employment is at record highs for black people, Hispanics, and women.

The unemployment rate ties an 18-year low, and you have to go back 45 years to find a lower rate.

North Korea is denuclearizing. Kim Jong Un's nuclear test and missile sites are gone. Kaput. History.

The Islamic State lost 95% of its territory within a year of President Trump's election.

NATO allies are grudgingly living up to their promises to fund their militaries.

Taxes are cut. Foreign investors have returned. Companies are repatriating the money they had stashed overseas to avoid taxes.

Here's his long list of accomplishments.

All by a crazy idiot who really doesn't run things.

The cool, smart, hip guy failed. Bigly. He was the hare.

I voted for the tortoise.

    2. I recall a Readers Digest advert of the era for some article about Carter’s administration.

      The Politburo were showing home movies of him, and laughing their heads off.

    3. But has anyone been able to determine if Obama even had an above average I.Q.? I think Obama's "genius" is part of the Democrats "if you tell a like often enough people will believe it" strategy.

  2. Well then, our thanks go out to President Anonymous, writer of note, for Making America Great Again in spite of the Fake President, Trump.
    I mean, who else could it have been? Now I understand why the flop-ed was written. It must be awful to work so hard and not receive the recognition you deserve.
    Thank you, President Anon.

  3. Obama isn't cool and he most likely isn't a genius. He was a lazy puppet who was happy doing what he was told to do and in return he and his wife got to enjoy their tenure as if they were royalty.

  5. Zippy was never that cool. He worked too hard trying to look like it.

    A ten year old beat him at hoops, he's hardly generous or humble, and I doubt he's any better on the dance floor.

    And nobody drops the mic as well or as often as The Donald.

  7. It’s not Trump’s style to drop the mic.

    He hefts it, and says “Come a little closer. There’s something I want to bounce off you.”

  10. Obama really had a great, great voice. Much better than Hillary, or even Sarah Pallin; and I liked his voice better than Trump, Romney, McCain, Kerry; even better than Bush.

    Policies, terrible; results bad. Voice great.

  11. If Obama was so brilliant, why didn't some big law firm hire him right out of law school? He had been head of the Harvard Law Review and would have boosted any company's minority hiring program.

    1. That is false. He was not the head of the Harvard Law Review. That prestigious role is the editor. Obama was the "president" of the law review. Basically, it was the equivalent of Miss Congeniality.

      Delete
    2. That’s right -- essentially a popularity contest (although it baffles me that he even achieved that, since he doesn’t seem to have had any real friends -- no doubt an affirmative action vote so the Harvard lefties could feel good about themselves). And, he never published a single word.

  12. Wrt basketball, obozo is challenged to make a layup, we saw the vid of him shooting bricks and airballs from 12'. As far as his golf game goes hes not even a hacker, its laughingly embarassing esp for all his time on the course. What are his main post pres activities? Watching espn 8 hours a day? What a loser slacker load.

    1. But his misses were very pretty. Fine form, good follow through. The problem was: The guy has absolutely no feel in his hands. Applied to his golf game as well. Just rotten, numb, total absence of athletic skill in his hands. Sports wise, The Black Jesus was a poseur.

  13. Beautiful article and very well done. Personally, I think you took it easy on Obama but no worries. His day in the sun is over. He failed and his crimes are being displayed daily now. Thanks for writing it.

  14. A lot of previously uncommitted people are warming to Trump same way they warmed to Ronnie.

    Not just on beliefs. Not just on policy.

    They listen to him on the set for a while, then they just kinda lean back and go ... “I LIKE the guy.”

    And that is how second terms are won.

  15. Kind of reminds me of Lincoln when he was told Grant was a drunk. I believe he said then get me more drunks because he is the best general that I have or words to that effect. Now you may not like Trump's style but if you read the criticisms in the op ed they are strange. The writer says Trump invites people of differing opinions and then actually changes his mind. Oh my, who would have thought that a wannabe dictator would be willing to change his mind after a lively discussion around a table of knowledgeable people. I thought that was the way it was supposed to work. I didn't know that John Kasich never changed his mind when given more info on a given topic but apparently John in his interview on CNN seems to think peace in the valley is much more important than getting dissenting opinions. Well, I don't think so and I think a really great leader will have a lot of voices around him that disagree with each other, a leader is not a dictator a leader is one who can sift through the BS and come out with the pony.

    3. The hallmark of a truly open mind is the willingness to modify one’s thinking based on new information. That simply doesn‘t register with the left-wing hive mind.

  16. If Obama was really a genius, we'd have had his IQ and SAT test scores and school grades and academic and intellectual accomplishments shoved down our throats for 8 years...

    But not a peep about them (except to wonder why they're not revealed). Gee Wally why is that?

  17. Designating Barry as 'cool' merely underlines their own lack of sophistication.

  18. The unsung hero in Obama's life was the woman who pressed his trousers.

    Without that knife-edge crease, he'd have remained a nobody. David Brooks wouldn't even remember his name!
