Should former Presidents "stay out" of American affairs after their term is over?


Former President Barack Obama is meeting with world leaders, spouting rhetoric to foreign reporters, and attacking the policies of President Trump. Most Presidents aside from Taft who went on to be a Supreme Court justice, relax and only play roles when elections come around, such as Bill Clinton did. George W. Bush was silent after leaving office for many years. Where do you stand on this topic?

    Bush II was just a tool for the powers that be at that time. He was probably relieved to go home and pick up a paint brush. And yes, he's proving to be a talented artist.

    I only used Obama as an example - he's not the first ex-Pres to have issues giving up power

    But the former president shouldn't create havoc for the new president.
