Skip to comments.Obama: 'I Don't Care' Whether You'll Like the Nominee, Just Vote Democrat
Posted on 12/02/2019 7:48:36 AM PST by SeekAndFind
On Thursday, former President Barack Obama was the main guest at a fundraiser in Silicon Valley. When asked a question about the many candidates running, he told those present that he couldn't care less whether they'd like the eventual nominee. They just have to vote for him/her/it.
"Everybody needs to chill out about the candidates, but gin up about the prospect of rallying behind whoever emerges from this process," Obama told the millionaire techies, according to far-left news channel CNN. "There will be differences" between them, he added, "but I want us to make sure that we keep in mind that, relative to the ultimate goal, which is to defeat a president and a party that has ... taken a sharp turn away from a lot of the core traditions and values and institutional commitments that built this country," those differences are "relatively minor."
"The field will narrow and there's going to be one person, and if that is not your perfect candidate and there are certain aspects of what they say that you don't agree with and you don't find them completely inspiring the way you'd like, I don't care," he went on to say. "Because the choice is so stark and the stakes are so high that you cannot afford to be ambivalent in this race."
In other words, shut the heck up and vote for whomever the Democratic Party nominates. You don't have to like him or her, you just have to vote for him/her.
You've got to give it to Obama: he doesn't make a secret of his arrogance and party-first mentality. Principles? Yack, who needs those? Disagreeing with the nominee about "climate change" and "health care"? Who cares? The nominee will have a "D" next to her/his name, and that's the thing that truly matters.

This is why democrats win elections. A democrat will vote vote for someone they greediness with just because they are a democrat.
according to far-left news channel CNN
LOL. Now that is how you fight back.
Why not? they are interchangeable, like car parts on an assembly line..............
IOW, this is Obama’s way of saying, “We don’t give a damn about you, we just want you r votes!”..............
Well to be perfectly frank, of course that’s what a D or R should do.
In 2008 and 2012, we voted for the person that was going to represent the R party.
Anyone here love them or were they anyone here’s first, second or third choice?
obama says LOTS of crazy and dangerous things.
But I would have voted for a chair if it was registered Republican, against obama
This is more like :" You have to pass it, in order to find out what's in it"
I thought we all learned from that valuable lesson ?
Regardng the Dems, they all think alike, and act alike.
The policy and procedure always remains the same.
How is this any different from our side? I wouldn’t want to have a beer with Trump, but I’d vote for him. We don’t have to be buddies with the candidates we vote for.
Dont choose the best candidate for America - vote socialist!
RE: Well to be perfectly frank, of course thats what a D or R should do.
I gather you voted for both McCain and Romney?
Stop thinking people! Thinking is bad. Haven’t we been telling you that, like, forever?
A.) Is it opposite day?
B.) Foreiegners have no idea what built this country.
C.) Osucka DEFINITELY didn't build that.
D.) GFY, Bronco.
RE: I wouldnt want to have a beer with Trump, but Id vote for him. We dont have to be buddies with the candidates we vote for.
I gather you voted for both McCain and Romney?
Sounds like 2020 may be “Romney year” for the Dems
It is not merely that. They win elections and they stay loyal to the party once elected. We hold our noses and vote for RINO POS's like McCain and Romney, only to have them betray us at every opportunity. You'd never the the
GOP RINO party do something like pass Obamacare. A lot of 'Rats knew they'd lose their seats and did; but they stuck together and got the monstrosity passed. RINOs always chicken out because they "don't want to be blamed" for something. The 'Rats either have more courage or they get enough money from slush funds to buy their loyalty. RINOs fold like cheap suits.
Former Usurper, the Constitution says he can’t be President.
No I stayed home and slept because I thought obama would make a great ####ing president.
Next stupid question.
The Democrats got betrayed too, so many they voted for said they would not vote for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker but they did in the end. I doubt it but hopefully they will remember that.
