Obama’s legacy a nightmare
After grinding America into the dirt, stabbing Israel in the back (and front), and ceding world influence to Russia, President Barack Obama bragged he would have been a better candidate than Hillary.
And his royal highness brayed he could have beaten President-elect Donald J. Trump.
Looks like Obama really believed Barbara Walters who said he was “the Messiah” and his staff who obsequiously dubbed him “Black Jesus.”
The arrogance and denial overflowing from Obama never ceases to amaze.
Obama’s acknowledgment, finally, that Hillary ran an awful, over-confident campaign, was right.
“If you think you’re winning, then you have a tendency, just like in sports, maybe to play it safer,” Obama said in his interview with former White House adviser David Axelrod.
And the same goes for a president who’s delusional about his legacy.
Gloating as he often does — even in the face of defeat — Obama said:
“I am 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 told Axelrod.
Obama’s “vision” over the past eight years is exactly what Americans rejected. First and foremost, is his no-growth economy where unemployment has gone down only because adults have given up looking for work.
Then there’s the culture war Obama waged on America, mandating public colleges give transgender students bathroom choices, along with forcing Christians (in the private sector) to bake cakes for gay weddings. And of course, we can’t forget Obama’s praising the bogus Black Lives Matter movement, while demonizing police.
Let’s not forget Obama’s absence from the world stage and his do-nothing foreign policy which gave rise to ISIS in Syria and elevated Russian President Vladimir Putin to be the defining voice in the Middle East. Because Obama kept dithering, President Bashar Assad — with the help of Putin and Iran and China — has committed genocide on his people.
Of course, Obama’s destabilization of the Middle East wouldn’t have been complete without his Iran overture. After 35 years of U.S., Obama gave the terrorist regime that vows to wipe Israel off the face of the earth, a nuclear bomb and $400 million in cash.
Of course Obama’s love of Muslim terrorists and contempt for American greatness wouldn’t be complete without his parting gift to Israel. Last week, he refused to veto the United Nations Security Council resolution condemning the construction of Israeli settlements in the West Bank. His contempt is predictable, considering Obama urged Israel to return to the pre-1967 war territory lines as a start of peace talks with Palestinians.
Yet against the backdrop of Obama’s eight-year nightmare, he thinks he could have beaten Trump.
“President Obama said that he thinks he would have won against me. He should say that but I say NO WAY!” Trump tweeted.
Exactly right! Obama was a failure for the country and the Democrat Party. Thanks to Obama’s vision, Republicans won the presidency, control of Congress, and in 25 states — Republicans control both the state legislatures and governorships.
But Obama didn’t stop waxing prosaic on his formidable candidacy and faux legacy.
“See, I think the issue was less that Democrats have somehow abandoned the white working class, I think that’s nonsense. Look, the Affordable Care Act benefits a huge number of Trump voters. There are a lot of folks in places like West Virginia or Kentucky who didn’t vote for Hillary, didn’t vote for me, but are being helped by this … The problem is, is that we’re not there on the ground communicating not only the dry policy aspects of this, but that we care about these communities, that we’re bleeding for these communities.”
What? Working-class union voters in coal-producing states like West Virginia, Kentucky watched their jobs evaporate under Obama, who declared a war on coal. Those same blue-collar workers are now choosing between paying their mortgage or their UNAffordable Obamacare premiums. The problem wasn’t that Democrats didn’t communicate their message well, it’s that voters didn’t want Hillary’s four more years of Obama’s failed, crushing policies.
From the start of his campaign, Trump vowed to go after the blue-collar white voters in Democrat stronghold states like Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania that Hillary took for granted.
Not only did Trump beat Hillary among white men without a college education (by more than Ronald Reagan beat Walter Mondale in his historic 1984 landslide), but he also equaled Reagan’s margin among non-college-educated white women. According to exit polls conducted by CNN, Trump won white union members without a college degree by 58%, to Hillary’s 32%.
It may have taken eight years for Americans to see Obama’s vision wasn’t filled with sunshine and lollipops. But in 2016, voters saw through Obama’s transformational lies and there is no way they would have rallied behind “Black Jesus” a third time!
