Sorry, but I smell a scam. What reason would a former president, who has shown he cares about no one but himself, start a foundation other than to make millions for himself the way the Clintons did with their scam foundation?
Maybe the Obama Foundation won’t scam millions in the same way the Clintons did by selling the influence of Hillary’s position as Secretary of State and the future President (which thankfully didn’t work out so well), but I smell a scam.
I think under the auspices of getting young people involved in politics Obama will take donations from the usual George Soros types, up-to-no-good, types of the world to train community organizers who will scam the government and the American taxpayer Saul Alinsky style.
I do not believe anything this man is involved in is what he says it is. Obama is a man who has lied so many times as president, it would be foolish to take him at his word for anything. So I say, use caution when dealing with any foundation Barack Obama creates.

As they leave the White House, President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama implored Americans to contribute ideas to the Obama Foundation, a “startup for citizenship” that will be located in the South Side of Chicago.
“More than a library or museum, it will be a living, working center for citizenship,” the outgoing president said in a video message. “That’s why we want to hear from you. Tell us what you want this project to be.”
The Obama Foundation will “focus on developing the next generation of citizens — and what it means to be a good citizen in the 21st century,” according to the foundation’s website, obama.org.
The Obamas asked Americans to submit recommendations to the website for what the foundation can do. While based in Chicago, the projects created by the foundation will take place “all over the city, country and world,” Obama said.
“True democracy is a project that’s much bigger than any one of us,” Obama said. “It’s bigger than any one person, any one president, any one government. It’s a job for all of us.”
The video came just hours before President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration. Obama met with Trump in the White House Friday morning, and they will travel together to the inauguration ceremony at the Capitol.
Before the Obamas start work on their foundation, they are going to “take a break,” the first lady said. The Obamas will jet off to Palm Springs, Calif., for their final flight on Air Force One just after inauguration ceremonies conclude on Friday.
The foundation will be run by longtime friend Marty Nesbitt and former White House political director David Simas. The foundation will also raise funds to create Obama’s presidential library.
