The implementation of Obamacare is not “increasingly unpopular,” and Russia is no more our main strategic adversary now than it was during the election. Public support of rights for gays and lesbians is even more solid now than it was when Romney opposed them. Global warming is still a problem for the world, despite Romney’s refusal to admit its existence, and the evidence of that has only increased. The auto industry Obama saved is still saved, and the crash of the entire finance system he helped avert still hasn’t happened to vindicate Republicans’ insistence that everything Obama has ever done has been destructive. And Gwen Ifill is still right, and Romney still wrong, about what Obama said about Benghazi. But if Republicans want to tell themselves this ridiculous man, this denouncer of the 47% who told us “corporations are people, my friend,” this corporate raider with an elevator for his cars, this barefaced liar and long-time bully, was a prophet who shall now be honored in his own country, and are inclined to run him again against Hillary Clinton, I hope they will. Man, do I hope it. I might even put it in my prayers.
