obozo's netflix narcissism

Oh jeepers, aren't we ever going to get rid of this creep?  Now he's making monuments to himself !!  Well, he has to do it himself because no one else would, that's for damned sure. 

Quote from article:

"The man is seeking to rewrite history, his own history, [history in HIS words] the better to influence the public to think he wasn't such a bad president after all, through a television series about himself where he controls all the content.  It shows how reluctant he is to let go of the reins of power and act the graceful role of retired president.

Up until now, presidents have written their memoirs and then let history decide.  Obama never liked America or its traditions much, so it's natural for him to shun its presidential traditions – from his presidential portrait to his presidential library to his presidential memoirs to his refusal to go away.  Through this Netflix project, Obama seeks an immediate propaganda platform for continuously preaching to the public in real time that his presidency was greatness itself, and thus influencing public perceptions just through coming into our living rooms each night.  Netflix has 118 million subscribers.

Apparently, it wasn't enough to take taxpayer funds (and some were taken) to build a monument to himself in his non-library presidential library to loom big over the south side of Chicago, expropriating a historic Frederick Law Olmsted-designed park for this purpose.  He needs to be on television all the time, the better to keep stirring the pot as President Trump sweeps out all of his bad executive orders, high taxes, massive regulations, vast expansions of the bureaucracy, bows to dictators, and nightmare of Obamacare.  And while undoubtedly making millions (at what point has he made enough?), he wants to build an electronic monument to himself, in the same pharaonic tradition."

But just because netflix has 118 million people who use it, doesn't mean that 118 million people will see his drivel or should I say it doesn't mean they will choose to watch his drivel.

pay Paul can always depend on
