Democrat Candidates Make Obama Very Nervous
Barack Obama has been watching the clown car of Democrat candidates careen down the highway towards 2020. And this crop of fools is making him very nervous.
Meanwhile, they’re making me snicker.
At a town hall in Berlin, speaking for the Obama Foundation in Berlin, the former president is worried that progressives are taking things a bit too far:
“One of the things I do worry about sometimes among progressives in the United States . . . is a certain kind of rigidity where we say, ‘Uh, I’m sorry, this is how it’s going to be,’ and then we start sometimes creating what’s called a ‘circular firing squad,’ where you start shooting at your allies because one of them has strayed from purity on the issues. And when that happens, typically the overall effort and movement weakens.”
However, Democrat candidates didn’t get that memo, since it seems they’re all trying to out-progressive each other. As a result they look like idiots.
For example, this past weekend Iowans got to watch the Beto-Bernie showdown. Mayor Pete Buttigieg showed up in New Hampshire, Sen. Elizabeth Warren in Reno, and Gov. John Hickenlooper went to South Carolina. There were, of course, variations of the free-stuff-for-everyone routine. Oh, and Orange Man is Bad was another popular meme.
Bernie, however, did try to tone down his Commie schtick, so he told crowds that he doesn’t really support Soviet-style socialism, but “Denmark and Sweden do very well.”
“If we mean socialism is what the old Soviet Union was, that’s not my thing. If you think of socialism as what China is, that’s not my view.”
Oh really? Huh, then can Bernie explain why he’s praising the Soviets here?
Bernie Sanders was lucky to be able to get to the Soviet Union in 1988 and praise all its stunning socialist achievements before the entire system and empire collapsed under the weight of its own spectacular failures. pic.twitter.com/bENmwVKi0g

Beto O’Rourke spent his time in Iowa lying about President Trump, and even pulling the Nazi card, since he has nothing substantial to say:
Democrat Beto O'Rourke lies a lot right here:
-Trump said “we have an 'infestation' of MS-13 gangs in certain parts of our country”
-The travel ban is not a Muslim ban
-Trump never said neo-Nazis and KKK members were "very fine people"
-The remaining comments need more context pic.twitter.com/vwhSlw2IlG

While Pete Buttigieg resurrected a year-old comment from the President in which Trump called the MS-13 gang “animals.” Thus, Mayor Pete wants you to know that he’s morally superior to the Orange Man:
You do not refer to human beings as animals. You just don’t.

Although folks at Twitter quickly schooled him:
“I mean, personally, I kind of think members of a death cartel who chop off women and children’s heads and hang their bodies off highway overpasses are kind of animals but that’s just me.”
“Yesterday – I apologize for saying all lives matter.”
“Today – Yes, even MS-13 death cartel members lives matter.”
But it’s not just the Democrat candidates who are making complete jackasses of themselves. There’s also those kooks who still have butthurt over the Mueller report. Like Sen. Ron Wyden, who said this on Saturday:
“Every day that goes by without the American people getting the actual report… is indicative of a cover-up.”
Can someone explain that logic? Oh, wait — Attorney General Bob Barr is probably feverishly altering it or something.
There are not enough facepalms to cover that nonsense.
Finally, witness how Trump Derangement Syndrome has hijacked the brains of “Move On” and “Rise and Resist” protestors in New York. Here, these alleged adults warble lyrics about Trump “blowing Vladimir” and a “pee-pee tape” to the tune of “I Will Survive.” They even included a kazoo accompaniment, because a kazoo is a sophisticated musical instrument which requires true talent.
Check this out:
Now to be fair, I remember singing this little ditty. . .
“Happy Birthday to you; you belong in a zoo; you look like a monkey and you smell like one too.”
. . . but I was in 3rd grade at the time. However, these lunatics dancing and singing a bastardized version of a Gloria Gaynor song are supposed to be adults. Actually, they need therapy.
It appears that Obama’s instincts are correct on this crop of Democrat candidates, as well as the other nuts who inhabit his party. They’re all shooting each other, as well as themselves. And the more they carry on like this, the easier President Trump will have in getting re-elected in 2020. As the saying goes, “This is how you get more Trump.”
