True to his character (or lack thereof?), President Obama promised that he won’t leave the world stage after PEOTUS Donald Trump is sworn in at noon on Jan. 20,2017. This isn’t even slightly surprising.

President Obama’s legacy requires tons of spin because it’s such a pathetic legacy on multiple fronts. The ABACA (Anything But Affordable Care Act) isn’t affordable. President Obama’s record in the Middle East is a profile in stabbing our allies (Israel) in the back while propping up the biggest state sponsor of terrorism (Iran) and the biggest genocidal maniac (Syria) in the region. Economically, Obamanomics was a total failure. President Obama’s administration became the first administration in history to never achieve a year of 3% economic growth.

During his weekly radio address, President Obama said “As I prepare to take on the even more important role of citizen, know that I will be there with you every step of the way to ensure that this country forever strives to live up to the incredible promise of our founding — that all of us are created equal, and all of us deserve every chance to live out our dreams.”

In late November, President Obama said this:

I promise you that next year Michelle and I are going to be right there with you, and the clouds are going to start parting and the sun is going to come back out, and we’re going to be busy, involved in the amazing stuff that we’ve been doing all these years before.

Early in his administration, President Obama display a tin ear. It’s now apparent that he’s got a tin ear.

Since President Obama took office, there are 12 fewer Democratic governors, 63 fewer Democrats in the US House of Representatives, 12 fewer Democrats in the US Senate and almost 1,000 fewer Democrat state legislators. History is clear. When President Obama isn’t on the ballot, Americans sharply reject his ideas.

For instance, there’s broad bipartisan rejection of his stabbing Israel in the back. There’s broad bipartisan support here in Minnesota (with Gov. Dayton seemingly being the only holdout) to return to Minnesota’s health insurance and health care system that Obamacare destroyed. Who can blame them? Health insurance premiums are skyrocketing and deductibles are totally unaffordable. Networks are tiny and access to care in rural Minnesota is difficult.

That’s what President Obama, MIT ‘economist’ Jonathan Gruber, Ezekiel Emanuel and media lapdogs like Paul Krugman will attempt to spin into the greatest health care system in the history of western civilization. Useful idiots like Thomas Friedman and Ben Rhodes are already spinning the stabbing of Israel in the back as proof that President Obama loves Israel more than any other American president.

With a disgraceful record like that, President Obama doesn’t need more spinmeisters. He needs divine intervention, which won’t be forthcoming. This is the most likely outcome:
