Everyone’s been asking why Obama hasn’t spoken out lately but he’s got a great gig with $90 million for a book deal, $100 million for the Netflix deal and a huge Chicago library with his name on it. He’s all fat and happy with full pockets but he did make an exception by attending a high-end event in California:
He attended a Beverly Hills fundraiser that was $2,700 a person up to a $100,00 table. Many Democrats attended the Hollywood gig in support of the former president. He spoke in veiled tones about President Trump and Republicans:
“Fear is powerful. Telling people that somebody’s out to get you, or somebody took your job, or somebody has it out for you, or is going to change you, or your community, or your way of life — that’s an old story and it has shown itself to be powerful in societies all around the world. It is a deliberate, systematic effort to tap into that part of our brain that carries fear in it.”
Obama continued by telling Democrats just to get out and vote:
“Do not wait for the perfect message, don’t wait to feel a tingle in your spine because you’re expecting politicians to be so inspiring and poetic and moving that somehow, ‘OK, I’ll get off my couch after all and go spend the 15-20 minutes it takes for me to vote,’” he added. “If we don’t vote, then this democracy doesn’t work.”
ANGRY? THE ONLY ANGRY PEOPLE ARE DEMOCRATS!
“The majority of the American people prefer a story of hope. A majority of the American people prefer a country that comes together rather than being divided. The majority of the country doesn’t want to see a dog-eat-dog world where everybody is angry all the time.”
“They’re mad even when they win.”
“I am not surprised that instead of replacing what we had done with something better, they just have done their best to undermine and erode what’s already in place. Of course people are going to be angry about that, because if you had health care and suddenly somebody who says they’re going to make it better comes in and makes it worse, you’ll be pissed. You should go out and vote.”
“Reality has an interesting way of coming up and biting you, and the other side has been peddling a lot of stuff that is so patently untrue that you can get away with it for a while, but at a certain point, you confront reality. The Democrats’ job is not to exaggerate; the Democrats’ job is not to simply mimic the tactics of the other side. All we have to do is work hard on behalf of that truth. And if we do, we’ll get better outcomes.”
Obama forgets all of the “patently untrue” things he told the American people while in office. “You can keep your doctor” is a big lie…There are so many other lies that it’s hard to pick from them.
There’s a huge difference between getting a statistic wrong in a speech and outright lying over and over to the American people about HUGE things like their healthcare!
The best part of this ridiculous speech by Obama is that he told the audience he so desperately wanted to keep Obamacare that he even told Trump he could rename it after himself….LOL!
