Republican Columnist Releases Op-Ed Begging For Obama – Donald On Verge Of Freakout

-

Many people long to return to the eight-year presidency of Barack Obama these days, to say the least. Since Mr. Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday, much of the world continues to watch in horror as the United States stands by and allows its president to hand over the country to Russia.

Even many conservatives are starting to wise up and realize that Trump should be anywhere but in the White House right now – prison might be appropriate. On Friday, Conservative columnist Max Boot wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post lamenting Obama’s presidency. Boot wrote:

‘Now I would take Obama back in a nanosecond.’

He went on to say:

‘His presidency appears to be a lost golden age when reason and morality reigned. All of his faults, real as they were, fade into insignificance compared with the crippling defects of his successor. And his strengths — seriousness, dignity, intellect, probity, dedication to ideals larger than self — shine all the more clearly in retrospect.’

Not only did he say that, but he continued to say that he was moved to tears on Tuesday while watching former President Obama’s speech in South Africa on the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s birth. He wrote:

‘I was moved nearly to tears by his eloquent defense of a liberal world order that President Trump appears bent on destroying.’

In his speech, Obama said:

‘I believe in Nelson Mandela’s vision. I believe in a vision shared by Gandhi and King and Abraham Lincoln. I believe in a vision of equality and justice and freedom and multiracial democracy, built on the premise that all people are created equal, and they’re endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights. And I believe that a world governed by such principles is possible and that it can achieve more peace and more cooperation in pursuit of a common good.’

Boot was a foreign policy adviser in both of the GOP presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2012. In light of Trump’s scandalous presidency, Boot asked:

‘Can you believe that an Obama-era scandal was that the president wore a tan suit or put his feet up on the desk?’

He wrote:

‘Oh, to have those days back again — before we had a president who was involved in indecent relationships with a Russian despot and (allegedly) a porn star.’

In his Tuesday speech, Obama widely criticized the Trump administration, saying:

‘Those in power seek to undermine every institution or norm that gives democracy meaning.’

Boot wrote:

‘What was supposedly the worst abuse of power committed by the Obama administration — the IRS investigations of conservative organizations — has been revealed as “fake news”: It turns out that the IRS was also investigating liberal organizations. By contrast, evidence continues to accumulate about Trump scandals, from alleged campaign collusion with Russia to violations of the emoluments clause. Obama may have told a few fibs, like any politician, but he was not a pathological liar.’

In closing, Boot said:

‘He reminds me that just 18 months ago — can you believe it was so recently? — we had a president with whom I could disagree without ever doubting his fitness to lead. We can have one again.’
