As you may recall, yesterday was to be our last posting for the season, so we could get out of Dodge early this year, enjoy the summer and set a fresh course for life moving forward.
But just as all systems were being shut down and lights turned off, a news alert of President Obama’s planned visit to Spain this July popped up. According to White House press secretary Josh Earnest, the President will arrive shortly after Spain holds its nation’s critical election on June 26. The news ticked us off. Please, allow us to explain.
We also wanted to know about Spain’s criminal justice system, its drug laws and policies related thereto. We wanted to understand how Spain provided quality healthcare and university level education at less than a fraction of what it costs in the United States. We wanted to know if Spain was a tech savvy nation with a competitive and promising future. We wanted to assess the strength and durability of Spain’s political structure. But all these things aside, we wanted to know if the people of Spain were happy, healthy and forward thinking. We wanted to learn everything we could in our visit and that’s just what we did.
Bottom line: If President Barack Obama’s visit to Spain is anything like ours was and he still returns to the United States willing to enthusiastically embrace, endorse and campaign for Hillary Clinton, there can be only two explanations for his actions. A) President Obama is as corrupt as everyone else in Washington D.C. is or B) President Obama isn’t nearly as bright as he’s been credited to be. Either way, we’re really ticked off and we’re not giving up on Bernie Sanders until the last card is played.
