Barack Obama made a great speech a few days ago….
I can’t seem to stop posting about it….
Because the speech asks questions as to why American politicians has turned to the way it is ?…..
Not America as a unified country…
But America as a ‘them vs us’ place….
America where people from other countries are looked at as suspect…
Where ‘Nazi loving groups are all right to associate with people of influence in the America government…
Where basic ‘Rights’ are attacked….
It goes on….
Barack Obama made his speech pointing out what he thought was wrong 18 months after he handed the ‘leadership’ of the American government to an NYC Real Estate guy who campaigned AGAINST the America MOST on the 300 Million plus of us want it to be…..
The below linked piece points to something most media types DO NOT admit…..
Republicans knocked the former President lightly for making the speech, which format President’s rarely do….
But few if ANY admitted publicly that Obama hadn’t made some damn good points and observations….(Trump went to sleep, he says instead of getting a headache, one would suppose trying to follow it)
Republicans have moved to look at Obama as someone they can run against come 2018 and 2020…..
They figure that won big in Congressional, State and local races while Obama was President, right?
Of course polling numbers and pundits seem to think the 2010.2012/2016/2019 anti-Obama and Democrats days are GONE…..
The problem for us all has been crystallized in the last week?
What does the American government (Republican led) do about a Republican President that appears to be inept, uninformed, and possibly have taken criminal actions in the past?
Answer right now?
Hold on to see how the midterms turn out and prepare for the worst?
Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who has struggled since the 2016 GOP primaries to distance himself from Trump while also knocking Democrats, woke up on Saturday after the speech with seven tweets trying to thread the needle of that argument. According to one of them:
“Pres. Obama is right. It is wrong for a President to use divisive language, such as:
1. Call all opponents of same-sex marriage bigots
2. Call the Pro-Life movement a ‘War on Women’
3. Call all immigration enforcement advocates racists
4. Call the GOP the enemy of Hispanics.”
Trump isn’t right, Rubio appeared to be suggesting, but neither was Obama. He quoted the former president’s making fun of Nancy Reagan and defending his heavy use of executive orders instead of legislation, and pointed to Obama’s dismissive attitude toward critics of his policies on immigration and the Iran deal.
A pox on both their houses and everyone else, according to Rubio.
“We should ALL, the Dems, the GOP, the media, admit our role in turning politics into theatre,” Rubio tweeted. “Being outrageous equals clicks, viewers & therefore ratings & $ for media & fame for politicians. Being normal gets you ignored & a primary challenger for being ‘too weak.’”….
