It seems like every time Obama opens his mouth as of late, he embarrasses himself. Long gone are the days of 2008, where the golden child won the hearts of millions of Americans with his inspiring rhetoric.
I guess after eight years of failure, even his gilded tongue would falter.
Seeing the end of his time in office draw near, President Obama finds himself in a difficult position. He really has no reason to get involved in this election. His time is up, he has nothing to gain. Yet I’m betting he has more than a few favors owed to the democrats, especially Crooked Hillary.
So, despite the fact that this lame duck has little power left in Washington, the Clinton camp is forcing Obama to come out in support of her. They’re hoping there’s a little magic left in the outgoing president’s words; maybe some of it can rub off on the most corrupt woman in politics.
But instead, he’s dropping more gaffs than Joe Biden on a bender.
Saturday night at the 46th Annual Legislative Conference Phoenix Awards Dinner of the Congressional Black Caucus, President Barack Obama told the audience it would be a “personal insult” to his legacy if they did not vote for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Obama shouted… “There’s no such thing as a vote that doesn’t matter. It all matters, and after we have achieved historic turnout in 2008 and 2012, especially in the African-American community, I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election. You want to give me a good sendoff? Go vote!”
This is a little window into how democrats have been bullying and manipulating black Americans for years. Obama’s not running. He’s got no dog in the fight. In fact, there’s no guarantee that Hillary will do anything similar to Obama as president. Yet he is using whatever sway he has with this contingent of black voters to force them to support Crooked Hillary.
It’s the kind of sickening, underhanded game that has been corrupting politics for years. Forget that Hillary Clinton is a villain, who will sell out Americans for foreign interests. Forget that a businessman like Trump is more qualified to negotiate deals and help mend our economy.
Forget even all the rhetoric Obama made eight years ago against Hillary Clinton.
No, it’s Obama’s legacy that’s at stake, apparently. He is trying to guilt these black Americans into voting for a terrible woman, because it would offend him.
Apparently, that’s why you should vote, so as not to offend an outgoing president.
Every black American should be disgusted by this display. It is an insult to their beliefs and convictions. Obama has finally and completely failed our country, with this speech.
We deserve better than him and Hillary.
