Barack Obama spends so much time looking into mirrors. You might think that he would occasionally see his own reflection in one of them.
Without naming names, former President Barack Obama railed against “demagogues,” “bigots,” and “fear mongers” during a fiery campaign speech Thursday night in Ohio.
Is one of them named Barry?
Speaking at a rally in Cleveland in support of Ohio Democratic candidate for governor Richard Cordray, the former president slammed politicians who are trying to stoke division and play off of people’s fears.
Cordray was Obama’s CFPB boss.
“People are stressed,” Obama said. “And they’re anxious. And it seems that all the chatter and anger on television doesn’t match up to their lives. And it frays our civic trust. And it makes people feel that the game is rigged, and nobody’s looking out for them. And historically, in those kinds of conditions, that’s ripe for opportunists to try to exploit America’s history of division. Racial, ethnic, religious.”
The president went on to mention “bigots” and “fear mongers” attempting to exploit the political divide.
Would that be the sort of bigots who encourage racial minority voters to punish their enemies? The types of bigots who pose with Louis Farrakhan and Al Sharpton, whose people treat every criticism as racist, who claim that the country is rigged against them for racial reasons, and that the only people looking out for them are members of their own group?
Also, race relations poll numbers went into the toilet under Obama.
“In a healthy democracy, when everybody’s participating, and paying attention, and listening, voting, people of good will in both parties, they call out bigots and fear mongers,” Obama said. “And then they work to compromise. They work to get things done.”
Or they unilaterally implement amnesty for illegal aliens and rely on its corrupt political allies the judiciary to keep it going despite the results of a new election.
Anyway, we’re all waiting for the Democrats to call out Obama for meeting with Louis Farrakhan, who praised Hitler and cursed the Jews.
“Demagogues get out there. They promise simple fixes to complicated problems.”
Like ObamaCare or illegal alien amnesty?
Again, no names were mentioned. But Obama did, at one point, make reference to “the person in the White House.”
The one on stage?
