In a December interview, Michelle Obama bemoaned the upcoming Trump presidency, and, as she saw it, the end of hope. She said: “Hope is necessary. It’s a necessary concept and Barack didn’t just talk about hope because he thought it was just a nice slogan to get votes. He and I and so many believe that.”
And then she asked, rhetorically: “What else do you have if you don’t have hope.”
Well, change maybe? Wasn’t that really what Obama was supposed to be about; “change that you can believe in”?
There was change all right. Libya has become a failed state thanks to the Obama/Clinton State Department; an emboldened Vladimir Putin threatens former Soviet satellites in Eastern Europe; “Junior Varsity” ISIS – as characterized by Obama – spreads terror around the world; hundreds of thousands have died in Syria, and Europe is overwhelmed with refugees. That’s the international scene.
There was change at home as well. Millions more now have healthcare, but they’re offset by the millions losing their health care; murderous mayhem rages in the cities with the tightest gun control regulations; race relations have worsened, and there’s a cool 10 trillion in new US federal debt. You’re welcome Millennial’s. You’ll be paying that off for the rest of your lives.
I doubt if that’s change you can believe in but it’s change that happened. Of course Ms. Obama was actually bemoaning the death of her hopes for an uninterrupted left wing agenda. I suspect that for the next four years at least, that is indeed a forlorn hope.
But for the millions of Deplorables who voted for Donald Trump, it appears that hope has been rekindled, and is very much alive. It’s a fool’s game to analyze the Trump Administration five days in, but I’d say it’s quite sane to predict that there will be “yuge” change. Let’s hope that the change this time is positive; commonsensical and sustainable. Everyone should believe in that!
