Here’s how things could have been in the Obama Presidency. Instead, division and dissension:
Mr. Obama’s near-complete absence from more than 25 percent of the states, from which he is politically estranged, is no surprise, in that it reflects routine cost-benefit calculations of the modern presidency. But in a country splintered by partisanship and race, it may also have consequences.
So says even the liberal Donna Brazile:
“Every president should make an attempt to bridge the divide,” said Donna Brazile, an African-American Democratic strategist. “It’s a tall order. I wouldn’t give him high marks.”
If only Air Force One had landed in Rugby, ND, St. George, Utah, or Sandpoint, Idaho, to name towns in three key states that Obama has inexplicably ignored, our grim dystopian present would have been avoided.
