The article hits it in the end, the strategy might be wise if indeed Trump does substantive things in his Presidency that better Americans lives, but if in the end, if he fails in this, he may simply bolster Obama's legacy, at the expense of his own.

It's muscle memory. Obama has been the boogieman for 8 yrs. They don't have anything to replace him so they need to get some more milage out of him.

Bashing Obama serves two purposes:

1) Red meat for the base, who have been conditioned over the last 30 years to equate any & every major Democratic politician with the great Communist Satan. So every time you hear "Obama bad!" out of Trump's semi-literate mouth, he can count on his voters getting at least a half-chub.

2) Deflecting from whatever scandal of the day plagues Trump's White House. Anytime you can stop talking about shady Russia connections for 5 minutes & instead blame the previous resident for current ills, that's a win for Trump. God knows Obama did his share of blaming Bush in the early years.

Obama should start making comments about Trumpcare on twitter to try and goad Trump into saying more stupid shit.

I have this theory that the origin point of the Trump presidency was the WH correspondence dinner where his ass-hatery was brought full circle and he was publicly shamed for being a shit-stick. So far this holds to the facts 100% of the time. IF BHO renamed a post office DJT will have it re-renamed even if it destroys the whole country in the process.
