Obama Already Out of Retirement: Ex-president gives successor exactly 10 days before making public criticism

Obama Already Out of Retirement: Ex-president gives successor exactly 10 days before making public criticism, by Brendan Kirby.

Well, that didn’t long.

Former President Barack Obama said just before leaving office that he wanted to give the new administration space — unless President Donald Trump took some sort of extreme action. …

It took all of 10 days for Obama to decide that criterion had been met by Trump’s executive order suspending the Syrian refugee programs and temporarily blocking other refugees and freezing travel from seven high-risk countries. …

Michael Johns, who served as a speechwriter in the administration of George H.W. Bush, said it is unseemly for Obama to criticize his successor.

“This is entirely unprecedented in modern presidential politics and violates the unstated decorum that generally has governed the conduct of presidents after leaving office,” said Johns, who president and executive director of Tea Party Community. “Everything Trump has done in the first week is truly consistent with what he promised he would do.”

Again, partisanship being ratcheted up by the new left.
