There appear to be no boundaries at all to the Obama Derangement Syndrome on the right in this country. A few weeks ago President Obama said in an interview that his family might live in Washington DC for a couple years after he leaves the White House so his daughter could graduate from the school she’s been at for many years:
In an interview this week with Barbara Walters of ABC News, Obama and the first lady, Michelle, said they may live in Washington beyond their time in the White House to allow their younger daughter, Sasha, to graduate from Sidwell Friends School.
Sasha would be a high school sophomore at the end of the president’s second term, giving the family a couple years to enjoy, or endure, Washington as private citizens.
“We gotta make sure that she’s doing well . . . until she goes off to college,” Obama told Walters, according to an advance transcript of the interview, which aired Friday night. “Sasha will have a big say in where we are.”
If anyone else said this, it would be lauded as an example of family values (real ones, not the anti-gay variety). But since it’s Obama, it’s all part of a conspiracy:
Will President Obama be treated as if he’s still running America even after his term expires?
The answer is a guaranteed yes, according to Rush Limbaugh, the nation’s most-listened-to radio broadcaster…
“But Obama says he is going to stay in Washington. Can you guess why that might be?”
Limbaugh speculated Obama wants to “stay in town to make sure that whatever he accomplishes is not unwound.”
As an example, Limbaugh said if a Republican is elected in 2016 and says certain aspects of Obamacare were sought to be dismantled, “Obama is going to call the media, and he’s going to go on TV as though he’s still president, and the media will treat him that way.
“He is going to stay there to make sure that whatever he’s done to remake this country is not changed, is not unwound,” Limbaugh added…
Limbaugh warned his audience to “prepare” for this eventuality, which will pose a particular challenge on the new president, no matter what party he or she belongs to.
“Do not doubt me on this,” Limbaugh concluded. “I know these people. I know how they think. … [Obama will] have a satellite administration in exile.”
There simply is no end to how ridiculous they can be. None whatsoever.
