All That Noise About Obama

In 2008 the US elected a black man, a Dem, and the noise about socialism and Marxian economics were everywhere especially on the Right and their official news source, FOX News……

As an aged socialist I tried to tamp down the BS and set the record straight but the mental midgets like a slogan and an insult over facts……I tried to point out that the way Obama let the corporations run rampant and make the laws…….. makes Obama a lot of things but a socialist is just wishful thinking by the mentally slow.

Then in one fell swoop Obama opens his mouth and craps on the stupidity spread by the Right…..(he made my point for me….thanx)……

Barack Obama is very unlikely to give his official endorsement to one of the Democratic candidates running for president until the primary is over, but he is offering words of advice that seem aimed at the more left-leaning ones. On Friday, the former president offered what the New York Times calls an “unusual warning” before the Democracy Alliance, a group of wealthy liberal donors, cautioning candidates against pushing progressive ideas that may still be a hard sell for many citizens, like mandatory firearm buybacks, erasure of student debt, and decriminalizing border crossings, per the Washington Post. “This is still a country that is less revolutionary than it is interested in improvement,” Obama said. “[Americans] like seeing things improved. But the average American doesn’t think that we have to completely tear down the system and remake it. And I think it’s important for us not to lose sight of that.”

While he didn’t name names, both papers point out he’s likely referring to Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, who’ve called for “political revolution” and “big, structural change.” The recent late entry into the race by Deval Patrick, and an apparent run by Mike Bloomberg, both of whom are considered more centrist, is a sign that some Dems are wary of their chances against Trump with increasingly left-leaning ideas. Not that No. 44 is against innovating—he just appears to want to move incrementally and strike a balance. “Even as we push the envelope and we are bold in our vision, we also have to be rooted in reality and the fact that voters, including Democratic voters and certainly persuadable independents or even moderate Republicans, are not driven by the same views that are reflected on certain, you know, left-leaning Twitter feeds or the activist wing of our party,” he told the crowd.

With this one statement Obama proves everything I said when he was elected….change was NOT coming….he is a Centrist…..he is just a black big business Dem like Clinton the only difference is Obama is truly black and Clinton was just wishful thinking……

Obama A Progressive….. my ass!

All I can say now is….I TOLD YOU SO!

  1. I always saw Obama as a centrist myself. Please don’t hate me, but I agree with what he’s said. Much as I’d love to see a progressive revolution, I don’t think this country is ready for one. I like both Bernie and Elizabeth, but there’s little doubt in my mind that if either of them clinches the Democratic nomination (especially Elizabeth who is more polarizing), Trump will win.

  2. I didn’t see Obama as that liberal. One of the candidates (Mayor Pete, I think) was correct in saying that the Republicans will label whoever the Democrats put up as a socialist.

  3. Obama definitely kept his promise to change America. America will never recover! Obama led the way for Trump, by the way .. in case nobody noticed that little detail …Trump is Obama’s legacy — his only legacy!

    1. I have never bought into the idea that Obama changed the country…..made tribalism easier for the country to accept but fundamental change was not there…..chuq

      1. Tribalism is an exact proper designation … headhunter-style tribalism. Yes. Hooray for you! Very insightful!

      2. Exactly .. and the manure pile is getting heaped up daily by the Left and their ilk.
