Totally did not see the sacrificing of the Obama Years before the alter of woker-than-thou coming last night. Amazing that the failure of the Mueller investigation and the way Trump has rattled the Democratic Party has led so many on the left to succumb to the same Obama Derangement Syndrom they lampooned others about.

A foolish consistency is the hobgoblins of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

On Laura Ingraham tonight, one of the panelists (I think Dana Perrino) said that Obama ran as a centrist in 2008 and 2012 as a moderate, although widely perceived as a radical outside the Democrat base.

And now, less than 4 years after leaving office in Jan 2017, Obama is perceived by Democrats as too centrist, and the positions that got Obama elected would now disqualify him from being onstage with the 25 crazies in the current 2020 primary.

Delaney and Tulsi Gabbard were the two closest to sanity in the last round of debates. And they still support open borders and de-criminalizing illegal border crossings.
It's like Rome in 380 A.D., just before the Vandals and Visigoths flood in to pillage the Empire.

I have to admit, it is very satisfying to watch Democrats who for years have slandered Republicans unfairly as racists, misogynists and Nazis and so forth, now turn those same invectives on each other in a primary campaign.
It was inevitable that steadily utilizing tactics this vicious on Republicans, at some point they couldn't resist unleashing the same venom on their own.

Also interesting that all the things the Democrats for over 10 years assured everyone was "right wing paranoia" :

* a single-payer healthcare system,
* the complete abolishment of private health insurance,
* open borders,
* uncontrolled illegal immigration,
* pushing for outright banning of guns, except for the guns that rptect them of course,
* a suicidal plan to outlaw use of fossil feuls when there is no alternative currently available)

...all these things that they swore were just right-wing talking points and distoritions, the Democrats, every last one of 25 insane candidates, now openly endorse. Every last one.
