Yep, Obama infatuation is alive and well, in the Republican Party. Notice how you don't see many Democrats even mention the Obamas or the Clintons, but Republicans can't make a statement without slinging an Obama or Clintion in there.
I think we are talking about two forms of infatuation. I’m referring to it as a positive thing ... as in Democrats wishing Michelle Obama would run feeling an Obama would be their best chance to beat Trump, and she might be. You however, I believe, are using it from a negative point of view using it to refer to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and the perceived negatives surrounding them.
Republicans aren’t the only political group that have difficulty letting go of something they perceive as an unpunished evil. Democrats and some Never Trump Republicans can’t let go of Russian Collusion when there is absolutely no evidence of such ever existing. The Dossier that has been proven to be fictitious and riddled with inaccuracies and being more political opposition research than anything else has been the catalyst for the Muller investigation along with various warrants against other Americans yet again after all this time the Muller investigation which was to target Trump and collusion found no collusion and has had to go after various Trump supporters rather than Trump himself.
So, it isn’t just Republicans that have difficulty in letting go of things. One reason Republicans continue to resurrect Benghazi and the Russian Uranium One deal is that Hillary still may inject herself into the 2020 race so she is still relevant in many minds. As for Obama and say resurrecting things such as the hostage payoff to Iran on an air tarmac, Republicans are using such examples to counter criticism of Trump and the current administration. Mind you the latter is just my own opinion and impression.
Regarding Obama I believed, and still believe, he was elected more due to his race and speaking abilities rather than experience or capabilities and I believe his administration was more an embarrassment to America than anything else as he spent far too much time apologizing for what he perceived as errors and mistakes of America as a Nation. I believe he may have had some good intentions but he stumbled his way through his terms and never really accomplished anything other than enabling our healthcare insurance cost to rise dramatically only exceeded by the rise In deductibles.
I fully believe that much of Obama’s mistakes and his eventual legacy is one of inadequacy from someone ill equipped being elected to the office. He was not a business person, nor savvy in economics, nor was he a seasoned politician but rather he was a community organizer and dreamer more than anything else. Like every president we’ve had his administration is characterized by those he puts and instills around him rather than things he does himself. Again just personal opinions, all subject to be as wrong as they are right.
With respect to Obama infatuation though that I meant more as a positive than a negative. Meaning to say so many Democrats are seeing her as their greatest advantage or chance to unseat and beat Trump in 2020. I too believe she would be their best chance. Like one of Fox New’s “The Five” host said an overwhelming winning Democratic Ticket would be Joe Biden / Michelle Obama as President / VP ticket and that would almost insure 12 years of Democratic control of the executive branch.
