“‘Be rooted in reality’: Barack Obama urges moderation to 2020 Democratic presidential contenders.”
So reads a recent headline from USA Today’s Nicholas Wu.
Wow! Is Barack Obama moving toward the center?
He’s starting to sound reasonable lately. What gives?
“The average American doesn’t think we have to completely tear down the system and remake it. And I think it’s important for us not to lose sight of that,” Obama said to the audience, the Associated Press reported.
Could it be that Obama was fully intending this get leaked so that he can “secretly” yet publicly talk directly to the 2020 Democratic field?
I think that’s rather obvious…
But it’s what he’s saying that may not be as straightforward as it seems.
Let’s unpack this, shall we?
Barry has a pretty long track record of saying one thing and meaning another. For example:
“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor…”
“We can’t drill our way to lower gas prices…”
“I reduced the deficits in half and grew our economy…”
“There’s not a smidgeon of corruption in my administration…”
“George Bush created ISIS with his wars…”
And of course, who can forget that old-time classic as told to Russian President Medvedev “After my election, I’ll have more flexibility.” (We still don’t know what he meant by that – only that it’s a masterful way of weaving Russian Collusion and Quid Pro Quo into one whispered sentence).
Fool Me Once, Shame on Me. Fool Me Twice?
So, is Obama really moderating?
Has Global Warming just delivered the final nail in Hell’s coffin?
Not so fast…
What Obama is really doing is trying to show the Democrat field how to get elected. It’s not that he himself has suddenly become a moderate… or that he wants or expects the 2020 field to.
Not even a little.
He knows full well you can’t go around promising to give people universal income… completely open the borders… provide health insurance for everyone, especially illegals… shut down the coal industry… ban cars, planes, air conditioning, plastic straws, steel buildings, billionaires & offensive language…
“Too much too soon,” thinks Barack.
It’s not that Barry doesn’t want all this (at least for the serfdom). It’s that he knows you can’t say it out loud!
It sounds KOOKY…
You might get the safe-space college snowflakes and 60s retread hippies on-board – but the rest of America?
The ones that elect Presidents?
No, that’s a dumb strategy.
Instead, you lie to them and pursue these goals behind closed doors ONCE YOU GET ELECTED.
Can you sprinkle in some socialism here and there on the campaign trail? Sure.
A little “the rich don’t pay their fair share” here… some “right to a living wage” there is all good. Fifty years of Americans being force-fed this crap has made it more that palatable to the more vulnerable amongst us.
But no more cars or planes? That’s a bridge too far.
That frog needs to get warmed up a bit before you boil him.
For instance, instead of saying, we need to get rid cars, planes, boats, coal, oil etc., you say we need to “Fundamentally Transform America”
Same thing, but a slightly different, more effective method of delivery.
To sum it up, here’s how to translate what Obama is trying to tell the 2020 field (in my best Adam Schiff)
What the hell are you idiots doing? Shut up! You’re not supposed to tell them our plans – you’re supposed to lie to them, tell them what they want to hear, and sound reasonable doing it. THEN you can get in there and topple this colonialist s**thole from the inside.
Perhaps that’s why he just sent in Deval Patrick.
I don’t know about you, but I’m not buying it.
That’s my take.
PS – Have a look-see at this story: The Cult of Liberalism. We published this last month on Halloween. Eerily similar to what the Deep State has begun accusing us of this week. Looks like we may have a Democrat operative or two in the audience. Stay tuned… Happy Thanksgiving!
