Skip to comments.Obama Discusses 2018 Election Results [semi-satire]
Posted on 11/25/2018 9:49:13 AM PST by John Semmens
Disappointed that Democrats didnt win every contested election in the 2018 mid-terms, former President Barack Obama charged that too many voters are still confused, blind, filled with hate and racist. Given a clear choice between the progressive socialist values represented by Democrats in every state and district, a distressingly large number of voters persisted in pulling the lever for Republicans.
Obama laid some of the blame on himself for not seeking a third term as president. Im confident that I wouldve won, he boasted. I wouldve gotten billions of dollars of in-kind publicity from a loyal press corps. The people love me. But I let myself be dissuaded by a constitutional quirk limiting presidents to two terms. In retrospect, Im pretty sure that I couldve gotten a friendly judge to put a temporary restraining order on that constitutional provision. Once I was reelected who wouldve had the nerve to argue for overturning the will of the voters? My unthinking submission to a piece of paper denied voters their democratic right to freely choose their own government.
According to the ex-president, a silver lining from the 2018 election results was the emergence of Texas Senate candidate Beto ORourke as a 2020 Democratic presidential contender. He is, for all intents and purposes, a white version of me, Obama asserted. He is smooth, articulate, and a good looking guy. Like me, he had no significant accomplishments as a member of Congress and can define himself as whoever he wants to be. Even better, since he lost his senate race against Ted Cruz he is free to work full-time on a 2020 presidential campaign. This should give him a valuable head start in fund raising vs. other Democratic contenders who will be bogged down with attending to legislative duties over the next two years.

no too far from the truth ping
Now the entire CA Republican party gets wiped out (by late vote counting)? Plus a dozen other races?
Sound like a conspiracy rather than a political plot to overthrow the gov’t.
the senate and the wh live
The first day of the new session, the senate should announce investigations of a coup against the president era day Obama and Hillary, Maxine waters inciting violence, adman stiff leaking intelligence committee information, elijah cumming speaking hearing information on benghazi, Pelosy for adding riders to bills that benefit her husband’s stock holdings, Diane Feinstein should be removed from the judicial committee for withholding evidence, and John Lewis for being senile.
It’s time to get down and dirty, if they want to play get trump, then it’s time to fire back.
"With me, the beloved president, campaigning for you, you'll slaughter those Republicans."
