Obama is not going to be President past his term. Point of fact, I would guess that given his druthers he'd probably happily walk away today. Like or
hate Obama, there is no denying the fact that he has faced obstruction on an unprecedented level. The opposition laid waste to the previous filibuster
record under his administration. They are set to nearly triple the record for the longest SCOTUS conformation block ( and while not even going through
the motions of hearings, which is totally unprecedented ).
Personally, if I were Obama I think I'd have already said "Screw you guys, I'm going home... Have at it."
In a rational world I would agree that Hillary would be, at the very least, disqualified before the election. But it will not happen. Wall St and the
lobbyists have her back. She is an insider, just as nearly every other candidate is. For all of the hyperbole, her legal situation is somewhat less
problematic than the one Patreus faced... and he was charged with a misdemeanor in the end... and he was not somebody who has gotten somewhere
in the neighborhood of ten million dollars of "investment" paid into. Hillary has been bought for about that amount.
Hillary will be the Democratic nominee. I hate it, but it is what will come to pass.
Trump is harder to pin down ATM. He is playing the role of the ultimate outsider... however the revelation that the Koch brothers are not going to
spend money to try and take him down in favor of an establishment candidate ( They own several states and a sizable portion of Congress... the White
House is well within their grasp ) is a massive red flag. We're used to lap dogs running for office. Petty politicians who want to snuggle up to
billionaires. Trump is not a lap dog, but he is a billionaire. Is he an "outsider" or is he really just way more insider than anyone we've previously
seen? Have the masters gotten tired of sending in their pets and chipping away at the system to the point where they're just going to send in one of
their own to bring it all crashing down in a single act?
I think it's entirely possible.
The GOP establishment may seek to try and play dirty tricks come RNC time... but I'm of the opinion that they will not work. The groundswell
underneath Trump is too powerful. There are too many Americans who want to watch it all burn and who are not thinking about what comes afterward. The
irony here, of course, is that the people who have screamed the most about fear of dictatorship seem Hell bent upon enabling exactly that.
Sanders has the best of intentions. Sadly the machine is chewing him up and will soon spit him out. Hillary and the DNC are already trying to brush
him away like so much dandruff. The media is happy to be more than complicit in this regard. They will bury Bernie no matter what happens.
It will be Trump V Clinton, barring something totally unforeseeable, like an assassination... Which means we're basically screwed. I don't think it
will be the death of our Republic. But I do think that time will look back upon the next several years as our darkest.
