Current administration divided country

Our current president remains delusional on the outcome of the recent elections and steadfastly believes that it had nothing to do with him or his policies of the last eight years. But, facts as they say, are stubborn things and the repudiation of the Obama administration is deep and specific:

• Since becoming president in 2008, the Democratic Party has lost 11 seats in the U.S. Senate

• 60 seats in the U.S. House

• Relinquished control of both House and Senate

• 14 governorships

• 900 state legislative seats all across the country

• Numerous mayoral and city council seats

• Democrat control of governorships and state legislatures are down to four out of the 50 states

This is not a blanket endorsement of the president-elect or the Republican Party. They have a lot of work to do and an enormous mess to deal with.

The country realized this and collectively voted to change direction. The jury is out and the people are watching to see if the “swamp” will indeed be drained in Washington, D.C., or will it be business as usual.

Meanwhile, the Obama legacy will be one of deep division, big government, illegal executive orders, attacks on religious freedom, the exploding of the national debt, the rise of ISIS and the failure of Obamacare, just to name a few.
