The difference between Trump and Obama’s New Years Eve tweets says it all


It’s only been a year, but a year makes all the difference.

A year ago the U.S. was still led by a classy, intelligent President, the kind of man who sends this kind of tweet as a New Year’s greeting to the country and the world.

Obama remains an inspiration with his vision of a future of civic responsibility, mutual respect and understanding, and commonality engendered by personal action. His picture of an engaged populace looking outward echoes the famous quote from President John F. Kennedy’s inaugural address:  “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

In today’s gloomy winter, a new president’s tweets show just how far we’ve fallen, leading to a mental reaction far worse than any seasonal affect disorder could possibly produce on its own.


The egocentric nature of everything Trump does bleeds into even his holiday greetings with the focus always firmly on himself and everything and everyone else in the world defined by their relation to him. He can’t even wish the nation a Happy New Year without insulting the free press and undermining our nation’s values rather than supporting and promulgating the best aspects of our culture as Obama so eloquently did in his New Year’s message.

This study in contrasts should inform our struggle during the year ahead and help motivate those of us looking forward to turning the country back towards the right direction to work as hard as we can as we approach the 2018 mid-term elections.

We’ve seen the options. Now we must choose to fight with all of our collective might or lose any hope that we have of stopping an agenda that will destroy America as we have known it, only to return the country to the dark ages of oligarchs, racism, and even more extreme income disparity.
