As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Video || Obama’s Back and Pretending to be High-Minded About Redistricting

All of a sudden, Democrats have become very noble about redistricting, seeking to take the politics out of it.

But of course, the true reason is not good citizenship, but that the politics are bad for them. According to the Washington Post:

Republicans are in complete control of the offices in charge of redistricting in 21 states, meaning they either A) control the governor’s mansion and both chambers of the state legislature or B) they have veto-proof majorities in both legislative chambers regardless of the governor’s party. Democrats maintain a similar advantage in just five states.

In the overwhelming majority of states, redistricting is handled just like any other piece of legislation. Lawmakers in legislative chambers work together to draw maps and submit them to the governor for approval. The party in control of the government also controls the redistricting process.

So the Democrats have trotted out Barack Obama, the leftist Chicago machine-politics veteran who is doing his usual “above politics” and “I’m a moderate” schtick.

The man who steamrollered Obamacare through Congress with only Democratic votes – and the bipartisan opposition of Republicans and 34 Democrats – wants to lecture us that gerrymandering makes Congress too partisan and not “reasonable.”

Of course, by reasonable, he means policies he supports.

  1. Dumbocrats not only steam rolled re districting in Calif, they passed a law on voting to make it possible to have the primary vote 2 Dems as finalists in the general election!

  2. Go away. I’m tired of the high minded ppl like Obama. His “better” way only plays well on the coasts and the wasteland that is Chicago.

  3. Well, here’s Obama back “organizing” and still trying to “fundamentally transform America” into a Venezuela type of corrupt state. Is it true he still has an autographed picture of Hugo Chavez on his wall with the words, “My Hero” at the bottom?

  4. Republicans are in complete control of the offices in charge of redistricting in 21 states …

    What’s funny is the left is trotting out the guy who’s largely responsible for the current mess they’re in.

    • The Left have been trained in high schools, colleges and universities to be useful lefty idiots. It’s at the core of the curriculum. Obama represents the perfect model they aspire to. So they trot him out when needed to motivate their lost souls. Of course, they do not see what normal people see when they observe Obama. Therein lies the problem.

      • Subversion: the core curricula, church doctrine, & ‘popular culture’ since 1955 AD. From the boomers to the boomerettes to the grand boomer kiddies- from prenatal to postmortem. Subversion is the status quo & middle class value for now. It will take an extraordinary human type to break its grip on the general mentality.

  5. You had your chance Obama, and you took this country down to its knees. STOP MEDDLING! To use your own words; “Elections have consequences. We won, you lost. Get over it.”
