There’s an old story about a rabbit crying out not to be thrown into the briar patch as punishment.
It’s a trick, because he actually lives there and such punishment would actually mean freedom.
President Obama announced that he plans to hang around Washington, DC, and recruit talent for the Democrats to rebuild the party.
In a reverse of the briar patch story, Republicans are screaming for him to – for once – live up to his promise. Obama in the Washington swampy, briar patch would mean further freedom for right-thinking Americans. Obama’s “safe zone” will surely spell the end of Democrats in power for decades.
In an interview with NPR broadcast Monday morning, Obama spelled out what he plans to do after he leaves office:

And after all that’s happened to the Democratic Party during Obama’s tenure, why not?
Please do! He's been the greatest gift to the Republican Party. https://t.co/0kV2ISF48P

Over 900 Democrats lost their elections while you were president, so you have your work cut out for you. https://t.co/57XNGM1PNg

Bipartisan support for Obama’s post-POTUS plans has been resounding encouragement.

He certainly failed at doing that for the duration of his presidency https://t.co/fJ1T9xN1f4

Unlike other former POTUSs he'll dedicate his post-presidential years to partisan activity. But he wasn't partisan in office. Or something. https://t.co/0M5FDCBMXI

The briar patch analogy may not be correct, but Republicans would love to see Obama exercise certain failure with his plans.
Briar patch, bottomless pit, lion’s den, they all apply to Obama further destroying his legacy and the future of Democrats.
