The "left" was never in power. All the hysteria about Obama fueled The Tea Party then Trump, yet he was never a progressive beacon. Obama is a true Democrat - an even-keeled centrist that would be barely "liberal" in most of the rest of the Western world. (Remember: NSA, drone strikes, was against gay marriage originally)
It's garbage. It was always garbage, and the only logical explanation i can find why the American right found so much to get excited about Obama is his race.
And now, it's a bully telling their victim that it's all their fault.
