Barack Obama Tries to Add Gravitas to a Tired Biden Candidacy
No one has ever accused former President Barack Obama of modesty. What the media admired most about him was his “I’m the smartest man in the room” attitude that lulled them into believing everything would be ok because he was here to save them now.
Perhaps being overheard telling Joe Biden that “he didn’t have to do this” (this being running for President) and getting caught joking with someone that you can always “rely on Joe to f*ck things up” wasn’t all that smart, but don’t worry because the fawning media covered all that up so Americans didn’t have to know the truth.
In any case, and in the typical run-with-the herd mentality that marked his eight years in office, Barack waited until Democrats finally had to settle for Joe. His grudging endorsement was tepid and unenthusiastic.
Barack Obama has an uncanny ability and the charisma to channel Martin Luther King, Jr. and combine it with the fiery rhetoric of charlatans Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. It was on display during his 20-minute falsehood laced, messianic message to his true believers at the low-energy Democrat National Convention.
His speech actually was more of a self-serving beatification of “Barack’s vision” of America’s failed promises. The upcoming election, according to Barack can mean the difference between the destruction of democracy as we know it or electing Joe to get on with…uh…Barack’s vision.
What is it about Democrats, whose party title is a derivative of the word “democracy”? Why don’t they understand that the United States of America is not—repeat, not, a democracy? If we were a true Democracy, the people in fly-over country, who overwhelmingly voted for the America First candidate Donald Trump, would be the sheep described in Benjamin Franklin’s quip: Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.
Earth to Barack: We are a republic. The best hope for its survival rests nowhere near the vision of Democrat-controlled enclaves like Portland, San Francisco, Chicago, and Milwaukee. It is in the hands of normal people who work for a living. Barack’s vision is totally identity-based and focuses on diversity rather than cooperation and consensus.
Of course, no one expects Joe, after 50 years of doing nothing in Congress, to suddenly morph into and take over Barack’s Moses role. But Barack’s intention isn’t so much to add heft to a feeble- minded candidate who will carry out his wishes. His playbook is from the legacy of another weak Democrat president: Jimmy Carter.
Jimmy Carter’s miserable four years is mostly overlooked and forgotten. Time heals all wounds, especially when you have friendly media photo ops while building free homes for people and you make speeches that Trump haters eat up. Jimmy is our doddering grandparent who never got over the demise of the New Deal.
Barack, who is looking decidedly grayer nowadays, will eventually take over Carter’s role. He will become the crusty scold who tells everyone why failing to sign on to his health plan people had to either pay up or die.
