1 day ago - If Malia Obama's first week as a former first daughter is anything to go by, the 18-year-old's re-entry into civilian life appears to be going ...


"Malia’s was a hard cry to watch — for me and I am sure for many — because it was a cry that we know intimately: the public-private kind of breakdown that one usually has for the first time in the late teens or early 20s (Malia is 18.) The kind of cry you might have on a bus, listening to music, looking out the window and letting your mind wander, only to realize, after the tears have already

在8年任內,他努力兌現他的政治支票,通過平價健保法案,經濟振興計劃,金融監督,同性戀權益,降低汽車廢氣排放,氣候變遷協議,設法關閉關達那摩灣監獄,與伊朗達成核協議,與古巴和解,並自阿富汗和伊拉克撤軍,他言而有信,經濟情況也還不錯,任內沒有發生什麼醜聞,直到他卸任前夕,仍然保有不錯的民調。
然而,這些他引以為榮的遺產,卻是民主黨的票房毒藥,現在共和黨控制了白宮,參院眾院、大法官,許多州長和很大比例的州議會,民主黨被流放到政治荒野。在川普上台後,他大部分政績都會像氣球一樣,一個一個消了氣。
這是怎麼回事呢?有人說,他是詩人,一心凝視遠方的星光,不知道腳底踏的什麼土地。支持他的人,分享他的夢想,反對他的人,卻掩蓋不住滿肚子的怒火。社會分歧日趨嚴重,族群認同政治更為惡化。但是歐巴馬有菁英的傲慢,把這些不滿當作黨派偏見,充耳不聞。 
他無力處理國會的關係,遇到國會阻礙立法,就以行政命令取代。他用這個方式,給400萬無文件移民合法化,給數百萬聯邦僱員調薪,批准巴黎氣候協議,他推出清潔能源法,也以取巧方式繞過國會這一關。---江春男
成於行政命令,敗於行政命令,川普一上台,就以行政命令取消,既有法理支撐,也有不少民意基礎,難道歐巴馬8年,是在為川普鋪路嗎?

Excellent

Michelle Obama’s speech to the Democratic National Conventionreceived plaudits from everyone. The 15 minute address -inspiring, defiant, celebratory - triggered tears in the convention hall and goose bumps across the country.
The First Lady spoke of her support for Hillary Clinton and creating an environment in which “my daughters take for granted that a woman can be president of the United States”.
“I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves. And I watch my daughters - two beautiful intelligent black young women - play on the White House lawn,” she said.
Among those quick to praise the speech was her husband, Barack Obama, who is due to address the convention on Wednesday. His tweet was apparently the most retweeted post of the night.
“Incredible speech by an incredible woman,” he said.
“Couldn't be more proud & our country has been blessed to have her as FLOTUS. I love you, Michelle.”
By lunchtime on Wednesday, the tweet had been shared more than 140,00 times and 380,000 people had liked it.
