Speaking at a town hall event on Saturday for the Obama Foundation in Berlin, he spoke about the need for compromise in politics, using his Obamacare boondoggle as a work in progress. He called it a significant achievement, and probably in Merkel’s seedy world of Socialist Politik, it might pass for that.
Obama opines that he thinks that the far-left progressive wing, while it is an outstanding wing of the Dems, that they may be alienating allies that are either centrist in the party and even some Republicans that normally side with them. He’s afraid they may be driving a wedge in between them.
Let’s hope that he’s correct. That would be the best thing to happen to America since Donald Trump was elected to office. And we say that not because we totally love Trump and everything he does, we certainly do not. It’s because the alternative was so insidious, nasty, corrupt, and anti-American that Trump was manna from heaven. A non-politician!
Obama stated, “One of the things I do worry about sometimes among progressives in the United States —maybe it’s true here as well — is a certain kind of rigidity where we say, ‘Uh, I’m sorry, this is how it’s going to be,’ and then we start sometimes creating what’s called a ‘circular firing squad,’ where you start shooting at your allies because one of them has strayed from purity on the issues. And when that happens, typically the overall effort and movement weakens,” he said.
“So I think whether you are speaking as a citizen or as a political leader or as an organizer … you have to recognize that the way we structure democracy requires you to take into account people who don’t agree with
So he’s admitting that the Left is basically unhinged, although he said in a way that the party faithful (the voters) couldn’t decipher what he was actually saying. He is the master of obfuscation.
What does Obama really stand for?
Q: What comes to mind when you hear Barack Obama? Honest? Pro-American? ½ white and ½ black? Intellectually honest? Trustworthy? Had America’s interests at heart? Racially sensitive? Pro Israel? Anti-Iran and Russia? Savior of America’s healthcare system? Lowered taxes, unemployment
A: NONE OF THE ABOVE
Obama was a pathological liar. Dishonest as the day is long. Anti-American. Claims to be black, forgetting his white heritage. Is one of the most intellectually dishonest humans on the planet Earth. I wouldn’t trust him to take out the garbage. Worked against America’s interests in every single deal/treaty he negotiated.
Is a black activist, with a great disdain for white people (Hint: READ HIS BOOKS!), is an anti-Semite He is pro-Iran (gave them $150 BILLION in cash), is pro-Russian, (tell Vlad after the election…), He destroyed America’s fragile healthcare system w/ Socialized care.
He raised taxes on individuals and businesses. Unemployment went up to nearly 8% during his regime. 6-7 million people more went on food stamps. Millions of jobs were lost. Thousands of small businesses closed. Companies moved out of the country in record numbers due to high taxes and massive regulations.
He refused to allow America to drill or otherwise attempt to gain energy independence and stalled the pipeline. He spent HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS on “green energy” projects, and not a single one paid a dividend. All went bankrupt soon after receiving taxpayers billions to stay afloat.
And now Obama is saying that maybe the Democrat party is a little to Left?
