During the 2008 election, in comments distressingly similar to Hillary’s “Deplorables” speech, then candidate Obama maligned large numbers of Americans opposing his election as those bitter as a result of unwelcome changes to America, and as clinging to their guns and religion as a result. Known as the “Bitter Clingers” statement, the condescension and antipathy inherent in his remarks then, and Hillary’s Deplorables speech more recently, reflect the extent to which the increasingly dogmatic, intolerant, elitist Left truly despises large number of Americans, including those who just elected Trump.
Obama’s reaction to Trump’s election has been marked by considerable bitterness directed against those who he blames for the election loss, rather than trying to understand the reasons why fully two thirds of the public thought that the country was on the wrong track on the eve of the election. Obama’s reaction to the election has also been marked by his clinging to the prerogatives of the Presidency, through the increasingly frenetic – and excessive – exercise of power in the waning days of his Presidency. In a clear case of becoming what you hate, Obama’s conduct since the election has revealed him to be a true Bitter Clinger.
Obama’s recent exercise of power has been largely directed towards two goals: The de-legitimization of President Elect Trump, and the safeguarding of what he believes is “his” legacy through the use – and abuse – of the power to enact last minute administrative regulations, issue executive orders, file lawsuits, and allow the UN to take action contrary to the best interests of America and its allies. That none of this is in the best interests of America appears to be acceptable collateral damage to Obama, since his main goal appears avoiding responsibility for his failures (and with it the results of the election), and of securing “his” legacy. Or, perhaps it is simply part of the continuing and more straightforward political goal of delegitimizing President Elect Trump, which if successful, will make it more difficult for a President Trump to correct the mistakes of the last eight years. Either way, it is a lose – lose proposition for America.
Amen, Hillary/Joseph, exactly how we feel. We are so indebted to his tyrannical tenure for providing 1030 elections where Repubs replaced Demonazis including state governments, governorships, etc.. As my father used to say, there are none so blind as those who will not see. Describes OWEbama, KILLary and the Demonazis to a T.
BARACK HUSSEIN O"BOWELMOVEMNT..........IS DEFINITELY A "BITTER CLINGER" !!!!.........THE SAME TYPE OF "BITTER CLINGER" THAT STICKS TO MY HEMORRHOIDS, AFTER I TAKE A "BARACK O'BOWELMOVEMENT" IN THE MORNING !!!!!
THE SAME HAPPENS TO ME..............
OBAMA IS A FRAUD AND SHOULD BE PROSECUTED......!! AND DEPORTED WITH NO PRESIDENTIAL BENEFITS....!! OR BETTER YET..., IMPRISONED FOR LIFE....!!
Lynn, what's the penalty for high treason in which US diplomats and soldiers are killed, foreign leaders murdered, governments overthrown in favor of radical Islamists, and terrorist organizations funded and armed?
Yes.., DEATH would be fitting punishment for Mr. Obama....!! High Treason....!!
"BECOME????" HAS ALWAYS BEEN!
I have total Faith in the man we elected, he's so damn much smarter, doesn't buy into the idea of laying on your ass, and doing as little as possible. He has a "Work Ethic" something almost forgotten by the Swamp Dwellers, who simply get themselves into place, then start raking in the "Goodies". New Day coming, people are going to have to go to work, Congress's Hey Day is over. With Leadership, this Country will rise like the Phoenix, and we all going to rise with it, out of the Gutter Obama wanted us in. January 20tth is going to be another "Independence Day", Praise the Lord!!!
He is bitter seeing his entire legacy blow up before his eyes. I love this.
Truer words have never been spoken. You would need very large calculator to tract the number of sore losers there are out there and everyone of them blame somebody else, except Obama, of course. Befitting the true definition of a narcissist but it seems like they only recognize that fact if it's a republican. All of this at least in my book comes down to the fact that; "It takes a good man/woman to make a mistake and an even better one to admit them.". Obama following the orders and money of George Solos wanted to direct America to a "One World Order". They would not admit it and few people have even given thought to what that means to our great country. Obama's diffination of what America should be was never really looked at in depth my most citizens. The book Obama's America went a long way in clarifying that. It really went deeper than Democrat vs Republican. The next thing we need to correct is to establish term limits. We actually serve to limit ourselves and our development by having people in congress for 20 or 30 years.
