Barack Obama’s disastrous presidency is finally over.
But leftists are determined to keep him relevant, almost begging him to come back and “save” the country.
Now one basketball great is trying to bring Obama back for one ridiculous job.
Leftists believe the state is their savior, so they deify politicians.
Suggesting that Franklin Roosevelt’s policies extended the Great Depression and expanded the role of the executive to a dangerous level is considered heresy on the left.
Leftists are almost cultish in their blind support of their chosen leaders.
They look at Obama as a rock star.
A saintly figure who can do no wrong.
Never mind his interventionist policies that led to the slowest economic recovery since the Great Depression, his lying about the Affordable Care Act, Operation Fast & Furious, and other blunders.
The left can’t get enough of Obama.
And that goes for basketball legend Bill Walton.
Walton won multiple championships for the great John Wooden at UCLA and won a title for Dr. Jack Ramsay as a member of the Portland Trail Blazers.
Injuries cut Walton’s career short, and he transitioned into broadcasting.
Walton is a huge Grateful Dead fan, and apparently, years of being a devoted “Deadhead” has impaired his judgment.
Walton’s alma mater recently fired head coach Steve Alford, and Walton made an inane suggestion for his replacement.
What type of characteristics does Bill Walton think UCLA should look for in their next coach?

Walton is obviously joking, but it speaks to the mentality of the left.
They just can’t get enough of Obama.
It feeds into their reckless hero worship of such a flawed administration.
And the left continues to give Obama cultural relevance to shape future generations.
The late Andrew Breitbart once remarked that politics is downstream from culture, so it should concern people on the right that Obama continues to hang around.
Perhaps most troubling is his big Hollywood deal.
The Obamas signed a lucrative contract with Netflix to produce content, which proves they’re desperate to remain in the public eye.
Originally they said the content wouldn’t be politically biased, then it was announced they were producing a project critical of Trump’s transition team.
Presidents are supposed to fade into the background and give future administrations the oxygen to do what’s necessary.
But Obama is doing the opposite.
He undercut Trump’s decision to pull out of the feckless Paris Climate Accord, then took credits for Trump’s economy while stumping during the midterms.
The left needs to let Obama go.
It’s not cute when they suggest he come back for a third team.
And it’s not funny when they recommend him for every single job opening.
He didn’t even do well in his last job.
But the left doesn’t let facts get in the way of a good narrative.
