barack obama, the narcissist without limits, declared the other day that he could have won a third term as President.
“You know, I’m confident in this vision because I’m confident that if I – if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it,” Obama said in an interview with David Axelrod, his former senior adviser.
Never mind that he has largely destroyed the democrat party.
While Obama’s tireless campaigning, broad demographic appeal and message of “hope” and “change” helped propel him to two terms in the White House, his skills on the stump haven’t translated down the ballot.
The Democratic Party suffered huge losses at every level during Obama’s West Wing tenure.
The grand total: a net loss of 1,042 state and federal Democratic posts, including congressional and state legislative seats, governorships and the presidency.
obama confuses the American people agreeing with his “progressive vision of change” with his popularity for simply handing out goodies willy nilly, rewarding sloth and punishing individual achievement- the whole social justice warrior thing. Now normally upon leaving office Presidents do the respectful thing and leave town, allowing the new President to act.
Not this jerk.
obama is not leaving town. He’s rented a home in the Kalorama neighborhood in Washington DC. The cover story is that he rented the home so his daughter Sasha can finish high school (at the very tony Sidwell- shunning public schools that liberals tout so highly). Sasha must be very particular about where she does her homework- the house obama is renting boasts of 8,200 square feet of living space and sold for over $5 million 2 1/2 years ago.
obama made clear his intention to “weigh in” on issues:
He went on to say, “Now that doesn’t mean that if a year from now or year and a half from now or two years from now there is an issue of such a moment–such import that isn’t just a debate about a particular tax bill or a particular policy but it goes to some foundational issues about our democracy I might just weigh in. I’m still a citizen. And that carries with it duties and obligations.”
Because he’s such a great guy and is never wrong:
“I know that in conversations that I’ve had with people around the country, even some people who disagreed with me, they would say the vision, the direction that you point towards is the right one,” Obama said in the interview, which aired Monday.
This is the thing with barack obama. He says what he wants you to believe is true, no matter how detached from reality it is. The RCP average indicates that 32.1% say the country is on the right track under obama while 56.4% say we’re going in the wrong direction.
Back when he was sure hillary clinton would win the election, obama said
“I’m not on the ballot this fall. Michelle’s pretty happy about that, but make no mistake: These policies are on the ballot, every single one of them.”
And the people spoke.
Those “duties” obama spoke of apparently include grooming disruptors who would continue to steer the country toward a Leninist ideal:
He said part of his post-presidential strategy would be developing young Democratic leaders — including organizers, journalists and politicians — who could galvanize voters behind a progressive agenda. He won’t hesitate to weigh in on important political debates after he leaves office, he told Axelrod.
obama’s intimated that he would wait a year or two before publicly opining but he is is a liar of galactic proportions- whether on health care, Iran or red lines. You can bet that he will be injecting himself into the political conversation on a non-stop basis and there will be a purpose to it. It will be to disrupt the Trump administration. It will be to force his progessive utopia on America.
Ed Klein suggested that obama is setting up a shadow government. He might just be right.
Thought you were going to be rid of barack obama? Think again.
