Divider Obama: “Our Politics Just Seem So Divided and So Angry”

I know, I hate to do this to you. The minute I heard that voice again I nearly made my coffee and Irish coffee. Or maybe just an Irish without the coffee. But the hypocrisy is too much. I just had to address this.

Don’t worry, I’ve done the listening for you. Here are the key lines from Obama’s speech last night in Richmond, Virginia supporting Virginia gubernatorial candidate of Ralph Northam.

Folks don’t feel good right now about what they see. They don’t feel as if our public life reflects our best.

The question now, at a time when our politics just seems so divided and so angry and so nasty, is whether we can recapture that spirit, is whether we support, and embrace someone who wants to bring people together. I’ve always believed in that kind of politics.

That’s a lie. He has never believed in that kind of politics. He has always talked about that kind of politics. But the man who jammed Obamacare through and revamped the American health care system on a party-line vote has never actually practiced bringing anyone together.

Rather, he incessantly demonized his opponents his entire presidency.

Okay, a couple of examples. Here is Obama in 2015 talking about Republicans who wanted to put a temporary hold on taking Syrian refugees following terror attacks in Europe, sentiments he dismissed as “political posturing”:

Apparently, they are scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America. At first, they were too scared of the press being too tough on them in the debates. Now they are scared of three-year-old orphans.

Yes, Republicans are scared of three-year-old orphans. Now that’s what I call bringing people together.

Or how about this one, from January 2013:

But it seems as if what’s motivating and propelling at this point some of the House Republicans is more than simply deficit reduction. They have a particular vision about what government should and should not do. So they are suspicious about government’s commitments, for example, to make sure that seniors have decent health care as they get older. They have suspicions about Social Security. They have suspicions about whether government should make sure that kids in poverty are getting enough to eat or whether we should be spending money on medical research. So they — they got a particular view of what government should do and — and should be.

Republicans are a very suspicious lot, don’t you think? Suspicious enough to starve poor kids.

Barack Obama, who revived racial tensions with his focus on the rare times white police unjustly kill African Americans, severely divided this country. President Trump is also divisive and attacks his enemies. But he’s no worse than Obama. Just less subtle about it.

At least Trump actually meets with Democrats and talks to them on the phone. Meeting with Republicans is something Obama just about never did.

Obama will spend the rest of his life trying to characterize his presidency as a time when higher values reined, even though he proved himself again and again to be a leftist Alinskyite and a product of Chicago machine politics who viewed his opposition as not just of another opinion, but as hateful and motivated by evil. The sad part, of course, is that the press and historians will accept his effort to rewrite history.

  1. Everyone who voted for Obama because they thought having an AfAm President would help America’s racial situation was so tragically dead wrong.

    Obama, like many Progs, says anything that works in the moment for him. He has no shame about being inconsistent, indeed, it seems he has no consistent values except exploitation for his own ego.

  2. Just who is so angry. I’ll tell you it is those who do not want President Trump to be president. They wanted to impeach him before he even took office. Instead of wanting to work together they formed “Resist” groups. They want to shut up anyone who does not agree with them. Obama and followers want to stoke the fires, not help solving problems. Obama never consulted with those who do not hold his point of view. President Trump does.

    Obama needs to call his friend, George Soros, and ask him not to fund the extremest groups.

  3. When he thinks of himself as never being wrong about anything, this is what you get. He’s a self centered narcissistic ass. How the world would be such a better place if we would just have gotten in line. Behind him of course.

  4. I’m not “angry and nasty”. There are a few incidents that shouldn’t have happened, but that’s American life.
    I’m not suspicious of government, don’t want babies to starve (would like to see them leaving the womb alive), and think some government concern is important.
    What I don’t like is when the government minions decide what I want, what I need, what I should do and threaten to put me in jail or take away all my worldly belongings if I don’t approve.
    The government has a base purpose that got lost and forgotten when know-it-alls decided to do what they wanted.
    As for Obama, he is what he is and will always be. He means nothing to me or mine.

  5. Its hard to believe that the Massacre in Las Vegas is all but forgotten now.
    What amazing power some group has behind the scene to pull this off.
    Even the anti gun peeps have gone silent.
    The old crazy lone gunman story again. Even tho the time line as presented makes no sense.
    Guy who did Ellen show as Campos looks only generally like the Campos pictured earlier. How can some one gain 50 to 60 pounds in a week?

  6. “They bring a knife. You bring a gun.”
    “I want you to get in their faces.”
    “Punch back twice as hard.”

    Nope. Nothing divisive about that, Barack.
