What the U.S. needs is...little future Obamas?

Barack Obama legacy speechPresident Barack Obama has left office after attempting to fundamentally transform America but he has a plan for that change to keep going.

During his eight years in office Barack Obama got the government into the healthcare business, lead the charge to redefine marriage, gave your tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, dismantled America's military, and all but gave up American leadership abroad.

According to what he said to a Japanese audience recently, he is only getting started.

"The Obama Foundation could potentially create a platform for young up-and-coming leaders," he told a crowd. "And if I could do that effectively, then I would create a hundred or a thousand or a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas."  

"If one Barack Obama can do that in eight years," observes longtime conservative activist Gary Bauer, "I shudder to think what a million of them could do."

Bauer, Gary (American Values)Bauer, of American Values, says the Left is still angry at coming so close to the political brass ring but coming up short, when the election of Donald Trump kept Obama from a third term under Hillary Clinton.

"No matter how gently we do it, no matter how much we try to reach out to those who don't agree with us," he says, "you're likely to be hit with a barrage of hate and anger."

Asked if conservatives are training young leaders in that worldview of government, politics, and morality, Bauer tells OneNewsNow there are a number of organizations doing just that.

"The big problem in this area," he says, "is that for decades the Left has step by step gotten control of a lot of our institutions of higher learning."

Left-wing ideology has also seeped into our high schools and even to lower grades as well, he adds.
