Gingrich: Obama’s Legacy Will Shrink Until It’s The Size Of A Golf Ball | Video | RealClearPolitics

فكرة عمّا هو آت… تخبّوا منيح

Newt Gingrich talks about President Obama’s legacy on Monday night’s edition of Hannity: SEAN HANNITY: Here’s a reality and I want you to tell me if you agree with it. Because he didn’t respect the constitution, separation of powers, co-equal branches of the government, ruled by executive fiat, Donald Trump is going to spend the first few hours of his presidency or at least that first week eliminating I would argue 75% of Obama’s agenda. Then you repeal Obamacare, and you replace Obamacare. That’s enough 10% And the only thing we are stuck with is his doubling the debt or accumulating more debt than every president before him combined and the horrible judicial appointments. Tell me if I’m wrong, it’s going to be like, I think is going to have a very hard time dealing with this, it’ll be like he was never there. Fair? NEWT GINGRICH: There is a very funny interview where somebody talked about, ask him, his advice to President-elect Trump was to do more things through legislation because it’s harder to turn around. And I think it’s kind of like he finally figured out the joke which is all this easy stuff he did with executive orders is easily turned around with executive orders. And you’re right, I described him as an incredible shrinking man, it’s like watching air come out of a balloon. Between now and Easter, his legacy will shrink until it’s about the size of a golf ball.

Readings

Just finished reading a book: “the Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian“, a Novel by Sherman Alexie; Little, Brown and Company, New York, 2009.

the story presents an inside look of the daily life challenges of Native Americans in what is called “rez” or “reservation”, which is a twist of what is in reality closer to a “concentration camp”. A must read definitely.

I will share quotes in a series of posts, and here is the first part:

“…, I draw all the time. I draw cartoons of my mother and father; my sister and grandmother; my best friend, Rowdy; and everybody else on the rez. I draw because words are too unpredictable. \i draw because words are too limited. If you speak and writer in English, or Spanish, or Chinese, or any other language, then only a certain percentage of human beings will get your meaning. but when you draw a picture, everybody can understand it. if I draw a cartoon of a flower, then every man, woman and child in the world can look at it and say, “that’s a flower.”…”
