Image result for bitter obamaDuring 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.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
