President Obama’s last to-do list

Barack Obama is now in his final days as president but, as he made clear on his visit to Asia last week, there are goals he still hopes to achieve before leaving office.

Closing the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay was among the promises he made when first campaigning for the White House. He continues to insist that Gitmo is a “recruitment tool that clouds and sours” America’s image in the world.

    Trump needs to roll back the most corrosive policies that Obama implemented. First ones should be any that we’re done outside of constitutional authority. E.g. the iran deal, co-ed bathroom rulings, blocking the victims of 911 from suing Saudi Arabia etc. etc. etc.

    That guy’s been a serious arsehole about a lot of things and someone has to show the American people that the constitution is still the basis for all law in the US.

    • Trump will decidedly give as much attention to the Korean Peninsula as Bush and Obama did – none at all.

      Things will get hairy.

    Kate at SmallDeadAnimals has a recurring title she uses for her posts: “Pleasing your enemies does not turn them into friends.” Obama might want to reconsider his whole foreign policy in light of this knowledge.

      What makes you think the inmates of Guantanamo, and their supporters, are Obama’s enemies?

    Totally ending immigration enforcement and importing 100K unscreenable Syrians are also on that list of special Obama things to screw Americans.

    He’s bitter and racist cause he’s black….he hates whitey….he knows he’s inferior in really important ways…he’s like a Muslim that deep down is labouring under a massive inferiority complex.
    So fuck ’em…..we’re learning our lesson.

    Go Trump go!!!!

    Soon we’ll be back to no more mr nice guy with these grifters and bullshit artists.

    I think he has his eye on Banky Moon’s gig at the U.N.

    • Clausewitz

      That’s the reason why he’s trying to shift from American sovereignty to UN control over many important issues. To quote James Cameron he want’s to be “King of the World”.

    On the last day of Obama’s presidency, what’s to stop Obama issuing a Presidential Pardon for every African American convicted under Federal Law? What’s to stop him issuing a Presidential Pardon for every illegal alien as well?

    I can only imagine what extreme things he might want to do in the name of the people of the United States of America in his last weeks in office.
