After eight years in the White House, the only problem when Obama leaves will be that he can still do damage to the country — or even the world — after he’s ceased residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
After all, some on the liberal side have put Obama forward as a possible secretary general of the United Nations or (even worse) a Supreme Court justice.
Either one of those thoughts are the kind of nightmares that have me waking up in the middle of the night.
It’s an unusual occurrence that we get some good news from Valerie Jarrett, but the top Obama adviser said in an interview with “60 Minutes” (via The Hill) that will be aired Sunday that Obama will keep a low profile after leaving office.
“President Obama will be the former president, and he will be a citizen just like everybody else, and he will behave accordingly, of that I’m sure,” Jarrett said.
“One of the things I would compliment President Bush for — and not just President Bush, but several members of his team as well, who have said to me, ‘We had our eight years and now we owe you silence,’” Jarrett added.
“And I think that’s the way the president will behave in terms of Washington. But does that mean that he has a platform on which he can do great good around our country and around the world? Sure. But he will leave being the president to the new president.”
Excuse me for a sec, I’m just going to go play the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s “Messiah” about two or three or 20 times in a row on iTunes.
The thought of the most unconstitutional president in history presiding over the Constitution — a document he doesn’t even care about — on the Supreme Court was too much to bear. The idea of a president who constantly apologizes for our country being the secretary general of the U.N. is worse.
A private citizen? That I could get used to — so long as it’s a very quiet private citizen.
