 Oh yeah, dewy will be back to refine and hone his marching orders from the bloody pantsuit, crooked hilLIARry brigade.

taco Tuesday sounds pretty good, actually.  I haven't had tacos in awhile.

Democrats had 29 governorships on the day Obama was sworn in. Today there are 18 Democratic governors, and as the sun rose the day after Election Day, that number looked likely to shrink.

When Obama came into office, Democrats controlled legislatures in 27 states. Today, it is 12 states.

In 2010, Democrats lost a startling 63 House seats and control of the House.

Republicans took full control of Congress in 2014, picking up the Senate and expanding their House majority.

Obama said he wanted to be a transformative leader like Ronald Reagan. Reagan won himself a third term, in the person of George H. W. Bush in 1988. Bill Clinton helped reduce the GOP congressional majorities to near-zero in 1998. George W. Bush fought and won his party a Senate majority in 2002.

The Liberal agenda was rejected by everyday working Americans. Those people don't want government holding their hands. They don't want their HC and insurance screwed with. They don't need protected from micro aggressions. They are sick of being told they are racist and a number of other things just because they don't agree with liberal ideology. They despise the GOP and Dem establishment that sold out their country's jobs for corporate donations they disagree that allowing floods of illegal aliens into our country to steal their jobs, schools and community services. In short, the people had enough of being told to be good subjects and bend to the liberal and establishment orders and edicts. Done with that.

Damn right. Seemed that Dem voters were passionate about micro aggressions and free stuff. GOP voters were more worried about the survival of their families and our Republic.

NYT columnist has harsh criticism of Obama - http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/13/opinion/sunday/obama-lobbies-against-obliteration-by-trump.html.

Out of a hailstorm of unfathomable things during the week, one sticks out to me: How can it be that in the end, Barack Obama did not understand the Obama revolution?

He came away from that elated whoosh in 2008 not comprehending that many voters viewed him as the escape hatch from Clinton Inc. It never would have occurred to anyone then — even the Clintons — that President Obama would be the one to brush away any aversions and objections, take us by the elbow, and firmly steer us back to Clinton Inc.

Voters waited in line for hours at those early Obama rallies because they wanted thunderous change. They wanted a newcomer who didn’t look like the old dudes on our money, someone who would bust up the incestuous system and give us, as the poster said, hope.

But Obama lost touch with his revolutionary side and settled comfortably into being an Ivy League East Coast cerebral elitist who hung out with celebrities, lectured Congress and scorned the art of political persuasion.

He was cozy with Silicon Valley and dismissive of working-class voters anxious about globalization, shrugging that “We’re part of an interconnected global economy now, and there’s no going back from that.” He was dismissive of Americans anxious about terrorism after the Paris attacks, noting that you’d be more likely to die from a bathtub fall.

He was dismissive of Bernie Sanders and his voters, treating Sanders as a fairy tale, just as Bill Clinton treated him in 2008 when he was a senator with little record but with an army of passionate supporters who wanted to upend moldy politics.

Nudging Sanders and Joe Biden toward the exit, Obama was the ultimate establishmentarian. As he told the Rutgers student paper in May, “We have to make incremental changes where we can, and every once in a while you’ll get a breakthrough and make the kind of big changes that are necessary.”

The man who swept into the White House in a boisterous rebellion was dismissive of the boisterous rebellions in both the Democratic and Republican Parties. He insisted that an incrementalist and fellow Ivy League East Coast cerebral elitist who hangs out with celebrities would be best to save his legacy.

And now adding to the embarrassment at the polls, it seems President Obama will not honor the GWB legacy of going away quietly:

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/11/15/fight-looms-between-fired-up-obama-and-trump-over-reg-roll-back.html

The outgoing president did not specify what his post-presidency role will be, but hinted he’d be involved and said he’d be “working shoulder to shoulder” with Democrats for “many years.”

Obama said he’d be in a position to make the case for why policies like ObamaCare should be preserved and said, “I’m still fired up,” referencing his 2008 campaign catch phrase.

Which statement from Obama should we believe?

http://nypost.com/2016/11/21/obama-cant-promise-he-wont-be-critical-of-trump-presidency/

“I want to be respectful of the office and give the president-elect an opportunity to put forward his platform and his arguments without somebody popping off in every instance,” Obama told the press in Lima, the last leg of his final foreign trip as president.

But he warned Trump: “As an American citizen who cares deeply about our country, if there are issues that have less to do with the specifics of some legislative proposal or battle, but go to core questions about our values and our ideals, and if I think that it’s necessary or helpful for me to defend those ideals, then I’ll examine it when it comes.


http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/20/us/politics/obama-may-jump-into-fray-as-democrats-counter-trump.html

In his remarks to activists, Mr. Obama urged them to stop moping and to ratchet up their opposition to Mr. Trump by Thanksgiving. He promised to join their cause soon after, telling them: “You’re going to see me early next year, and we’re going to be in a position where we can start cooking up all kinds of great stuff to do.”

Roger that. Obama never did seem to grasp the idea that it is NOT smart to announce to your enemies what you intend to do.

FTFY. Obama has pardoned less felons than at least the past 19 presidents, including the ones serving 4 years or less (e.g. McKinley, Kennedy, Ford, Bush 41).

 As the recovery from the Great Recession continues, job growth is solid and the labor force is growing at close to its fastest pace since 2000 because more unemployed workers are coming off the sidelines. 

Still, the percentage of working-age Americans in the labor force remains stuck near its lowest level since the late 1970s. Although retiring baby boomers are the main reason, there’s another troubling factor that experts predict won’t be solved by stronger economic growth

Too many men in their prime don’t have a job and aren’t even looking for one. Experts trying to figure out the reasons are probing the roles of criminal background checks, painkillers and even video games.

In all, about 7 million men ages 25 to 54 are neither employed nor “available for work,” putting them outside the labor force. Their growing numbers worry and puzzle economists.

Academia is worried and puzzled and we are supposed to believe they are the smart ones. The laugh at the common man and, in their eyes, his lack of understanding of the world.

You will not need some vast college study, no think tanks, to understand what happened.   2008 rocked the world.  One of our responses was to create this concept of Unemployment Extensions.  

While Obama claimed he was going to find shovel ready jobs and put Americans back to work rebuilding our infrastructure during the tough times.  That would have been smart as labor would have been cheap, and we could have gotten a lot of infrastructure for less investment.  Plus we would have carried skills forward.  Skills like concrete, iron work, machine operators.  
Instead he decided to fund a never ending cycle of Unemployment Extensions.  Unemployment is normally limited to 26 weeks.  With Emergency Unemployment Compensation unemployment benefits were offered to millions of workers.  The law was really piecemeal and is complex.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unemployment_extension.   But really it seems some workers were scheduled for about 26 weeks (1/2 a year) of unemployment benefits basically from 2008 to 2014.  Some with a concept of reachbacks could have gone back as far as 2006.  

Now those benefits are running out, and those workers are finding their skills woefully behind.  All of that unemployment taught a lot of workers how to not work.
