OBAMA FABLED LEGACY, WHAT LEGACY ARE THEY ANYWAY?
Icheoku says for a man so obsessed with himself and who sees everything through the Obama lens, many were not surprised watching him mouth off about preserving his legacy. The president was at a Congressional Black Caucus event, touting his steeped legacy and how he wants black people to troop out en-masse and vote for Crooked Hillary Clinton as that is the only way to ensure the preservation of his legacy. According to the president, it will be a personal insult to him if black people do not vote in this election and thereby make Donald Trump's victory an easier one.
Icheoku says what exactly gave the president the impetus to say this and how does he know that blacks who are voting in this election are so satisfied with his government that they would want to continue with it through Hillary Clinton? How does the president even know to second-guess that black people have forgiven Crooked Hillary Clinton for disparagingly branding them Super Predators to want to vote for her? Why did the president not insist that Crooked Hillary Clinton chose a black vice presidential candidate Cory Booker as many had anticipated and expected; to ensure that black people will feel they have a dog in the fight to want to give it their all to vote to elect Crooked Hillary Clinton.
But nope, he would rather come down with a marching order, do as you are told and vote for the Queen of the plantation, Crooked Hillary Clinton. Icheoku says what is in it for black people that they should once again vote because Barack Obama said so. What did they benefit from the 99.9% vote and feverish support they gave to Obama through out the past eight years to motivate another such a-la-carte plunge into obvious failed policies.
The president who spoke as guest of honor at the Congressional Black Caucus dinner said: ""If I hear anybody saying their vote does not matter, that it doesn't matter who we elect -- read up on your history. It matters. We've got to get people to vote. I will consider it a personal insult -- an insult to my legacy -- if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election. You want to give me a good sendoff? Go vote."
Icheoku says which history is the president talking about and which elected president ever took the black cause fervently, including the first black president himself, to warrant this appeal to communal herd block voting. Why did the president not drum a similar message right into the ear of Crooked Hillary Clinton that if she wants black peoples vote, she must chose a black vice presidential candidate? Why did the president not insist it was going to be Cory Booker or no deal at all in black support of Hillary Clinton? Icheoku says no one is in chains anymore in America, therefore the president has no right whatsoever to give out marching orders to black people to vote as instructed. Crooked Hillary Clinton is not anybody's Queen that must be obeyed and plantations no longer exist in America except in the minds of those who have not mentally freed themselves from herded bondage.
What personal insult is the president talking about and who cares anyway how he feels about how black people vote. A president who disappointed so many black people with so many unfulfilled expectations and under whose watch many black people have been killed in America both by the police and gangs, is here talking about personal insult? Was it not a personal insult on black people that the mayhem in Chicago is continuing under his watch without a far-reaching intervention by the government to reign it in? How about millions of black people who have been forced out of their job places by policies of the president which is more interested in pleasing other races and pandering to other interests than the black people.
Was it not a personal insult to black people that so many black people have lost their homes under a black president? How about the increased dysfunctionality among black families with continued high incarceration and longer prison sentences? What exactly does the president think is the incentive here for black people to go out and vote as instructed and not boycott the election since they have no dog in the fight. Icheoku says a President Barack Hussein Obama, desirous of preserving his legacy would have set out initially establishing some legacy to be preserved. But nope, he hightailed and is now coming back to shamelessly mouth off preserving his legacy. Icheoku says which legacy are we talking about anyway that need to be preserved Mr President?
Possibly the legacy of red lines that was drawn without consequences following their breach? Possibly the legacy of Arab Spring and the attendant mayhem that is still consuming the entire Middle East and some parts of North Africa? Perhaps the legacy of murdering a repentant Muommar Gaddafi who ponied up his nuclear development; paid restitution for the Lockerbie plane disaster; handed over two of the intelligence officers implicated in the planing and carrying out of the bombing, who were convicted and sentenced. May be the legacy of not visiting the country with the highest population of black people on earth, Nigeria, and think that black people will not remember that slight?
Possibly the legacy of refusing to come to the aid of Nigeria under attack by Boko Haram Islamist terrorists including refusing to sell weapons to them with which to fight off the menace and discouraged other would be alternative weapons sellers from so doing? May be the legacy of not granting Africa any special free trade status with America like he pursued with other geographical regions of the world? May be the legacy of not helping solve any African economic and political problems? Possibly the legacy of trying to force sodomy on African countries and possibly the legacy of bathroom laws in America?
Icheoku says should black people be excited about the legacy of a black president who never lighted the White House in black or other African colors during Kwanza weeks while the same black president have lighted the White House green for Irish Saint Patrick's day; rainbow colors for Gay Pride weeks etc? A president who readily goes to commiserate with other races whenever they are killed but who has ever visited the blacks killing field that is Chicago. What exactly is the legacy the black president wants black people to be so enamored with preserving that they should care about helping the president preserve it?
Icheoku bemoans that President Barack Hussein Obama has never surprised himself before as he did at the Congressional Black Caucus, thinking that he still holds any special place in the hearts of millions of black people. The greatest nightmare facing the president is barreling down the pike and on November 8, he will be shocked at the percentage of black people who will telling him to take a hike as they vote to elect Donald Trump. Icheoku says President Barack Hussein Obama has no legacy with black people to preserve. Further, black people are not buying into the nonsense that they have any inheritance in the presidency of Crooked Hillary Clinton and will not vote for her either. The president is rather afraid that his government will be investigated and is trying to protect and shield himself from possible long prison sentence with the election of Hillary Clinton; and is masquerading it as a need to preserve a non existent legacy. Who is fooling who, Mr President?
