Are you ready to hear some pretty arrogant news?
We have spent the past eight years hearing Obama tout his “accomplishments,” such as Obamacare, economic recovery, foreign relations. And none of them proved true. Instead, we were granted higher premiums, higher taxes, and serious problems in the Mid-East. And then we heard Mrs. Obama explain to Oprah and all of America that hope rises and sets only with anyone with the last name “Obama.”
So now, with a month to go, Obama still believes he could have won a third term on his hope and change message! Could president Obama have won a third term if the constitution had allowed him to run again? Maybe, but we also know that the evidence suggests his second term was won by voter registration fraud and we also know they tried the same shenanigans again in the 2016 election with Hillary. It didn’t work this time.
As Hot Air stated:
He might be right but not for the reasons Barack Obama gives David Axelrod. In a podcast published yesterday, Obama tells his former campaign manager that his vision of “hope and change” still resonates with the American electorate, so much so that he could have beaten Donald Trump with it had Obama not faced term limits.
The following Youtube video with David Axelrod interviewing Barack Obama has the president stating it was term limits that prevented him from running and winning a third term.
Here is part of his statement as recounted by Hot Air:
“I am confident in this vision because I’m confident that if I — if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it,” Obama told his former senior adviser, David Axelrod, on the “Axe Files” podcast published Monday. “I know that in conversations that I’ve had with people around the country, even some people who disagreed with me, they would say the vision, the direction that you point towards is the right one.”
According to Hot Air:
Obama was hardly a bystander to this campaign. Both he and Michelle Obama campaigned hard for Hillary in support of her diversity platform. Obama even went so far as to give Hillary lifts to her campaign events on Air Force One, which raised a few eyebrows at the time. The grand result of all this was a humiliating defeat, not just for Hillary but for Obama’s attempts to push his “hope and change” slogan for one more win. Voters clearly rejected Hillary’s Diversity Or Else campaign, especially in key Blue Wall states, and in doing so voters rejected Obama’s agenda.
So Hillary lost the election because she was simply too obnoxious to the former Obama voters but if Obama had been able to run for a third term, things may have turned out very differently.
Thank goodness for the wisdom of Congress to have passed the 22nd Amendment!
