Donald Trump is not even in the White House and he is already saving jobs. Within the past few weeks, he has helped secure jobs at an automobile factory in Kentucky and at a Carrier plant in Indiana. In fact, Carrier was threatening to take 2,000 jobs to Mexico, but will now retain 1,100 jobs in Indiana, mostly due to Trump’s deal making abilities.
Don’t expect President Obama to go away as quietly as an Irish mother’s whisper. It’s not going to happen. For starters, he was leader of the Democratic Party for the last eight years. This is good news for a scandal-plagued DNC that’s, essentially, rudderless right now. But, who needs an administrator when you have a shadow President to direct the party’s activities from behind the statuary. There are rumors that his Presidential Library is going to be built on K Street.

The idealism of youth is being replaced by a cynicism towards those in charge, and this includes from the President right down to the local level.
As if we needed another example of how both the Pres. Barack Obama Administration nationally and the Mayor Mitch Landrieu in New Orleans fall prey to ideology over how the world really works, here comes an “Assessment of Fair Housing” document that puts wishful thinking ahead of the realities of human behavior.
