President Obama has reportedly had to admit that he can no longer laugh off the candidacy of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who has a very strong chance to win the November election and deal a serious blow to Obama’s legacy — one that is already marked by failure.
Politico reported that Obama campaign staffers have acknowledged that they are now taking Trump’s campaign seriously.
Ben LaBolt, a former White House aide and press secretary for Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign, told Politico: “I’m trying to think of a series to compare it to, which was a series that started as a comedy and became a high stakes drama.”
He added, “I feel like we’re maybe in the fifth season of ‘Breaking Bad’ here. We’re way beyond the laughs, and just sitting on the edge of our seats in terror.”
A senior Obama campaign staffer told Politico: “There’s not a lot of mirth in the circles I run in about him.”
According to Politico, sources close to the president have acknowledged that he has thought about “what he might have done differently to break through in a way that would make people who’ve benefited from his policies—like those enjoying added health benefits courtesy of Obamacare—support Democrats.”
Well, the only people who have benefited from his policies would be the politically well-connected on the left, and I’m sure he made that plenty clear to them.
Jim Papa, a former special assistant for legislative affairs in the White House, showed the delusion of the Democrats in these quotes that read as if he’s speaking about Obama’s presidency:
We are still the country that elected Barack Obama in 2008, and we are capable of that and more. But we’re also capable of making bad choices and being seduced by someone who plays to fears and anxieties and racial differences.
And there’s why the Democrats lose; they don’t see the irony in what they just said. Papa is attempting to criticize Trump but he ends up illustrating the legacy of Obama.
Many people have woken up to the fact that they made a major mistake by voting for Obama in 2008 and again in 2012. There has been plenty of “change” but not much “hope” in the “fundamental transformation” of America the Obama administration has worked to achieve, as the president played round after round on the golf course.
Sadly, much of Obama’s support was wrapped up in identity politics. The left is also notorious for hate-mongering and scaring their electorate into voting for Democrats by making whoever the Republican challenger is out to be every “-ist” and “-ism” in the book, along with the obligatory Hitler comparison that crops up on the campaign trail and Oprahesque promises of free stuff.
Obama’s presidency has been a massive failure from top to bottom, so people are flocking to Trump in the hope that we can “Make America Great Again.”
