Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Former President Barack Obama, who once could do no wrong, recently called out far-left Democrats running for president. He warned these contenders that pushing an extreme agenda will not convince voters. In response, they turn on him.
Once upon a time, Barack Obama was the golden child of liberal America. Every news outlet, Hollywood celebrity, and college professor loved him. They forced America to accept Obama as our modern-day savior. Photos of him from the White House practically had a hallo around his head.
Some liberals loved Obama so much, they looked the other way when his administration caused one scandal after another (like the Fast and Furious disaster, Benghazi, or the rise of ISIS). They pretty much wept when he left office. In fact, some have even pushed for his wife, former first lady Michelle Obama, to jump into politics.
But signs have shown that the far-left segment of the Democratic Party is quickly losing love for the former president. This group is increasingly taking over the party, dominating mainstream media and politics.
Not long ago, Obama warned college students against the dangers of safe-spaces and trigger warnings. They ignored him. More recently, he warned leftists against “woke culture” and the dangers of “canceling” someone you disagree with. Once again, they ignored him.
Third time’s a charm, right Barry? Obama recently warned far-left 2020 candidates that pushing a “bold” agenda won’t win them voters. Not only have leftists ignored the president’s warning, but they turned on him, big time.
“Even as we push the envelope and we are bold in our vision, we also have to be rooted in reality,” Obama told a group of Democrat donors at a dinner event on Friday evening. “The average American doesn’t think we have to completely tear down the system and remake it.”
But if Obama speaks the truth, Democrats — particularly far-left Democrats — aren’t interested in hearing it. In response to Obama’s comments, “#TooFarLeft” started trending on Twitter, as progressives attempted to prove Obama wrong. [Source: Daily Wire]
Wow. I can’t believe liberals are turning on Barack Obama. Except, that’s what they do best.
God forbid they take advice from him. He only won the presidency, twice!
But this is the Democratic Party in 2020: a group of out-of-touch communists that want to ram their toxic agenda down our throats. They don’t even care that a former president is warning them that this approach will lose.
The facts are on Obama’s side, though, at least this one time.
His theories are borne out by poll numbers. A recent New York Times/Siena College poll that shook the Democratic slate to the core showed the “moderate” former Vice President Joe Biden as the only candidate challenging President Donald Trump in “battleground” states, not “progressives” like Warren and Sanders. More recent polls in Iowa show Biden and the recently moderate South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg leading the field. Buttigieg jumped more than 10 points in the poll, leapfrogging Sanders and Warren.

Wow. Mayor Pete, who has a terrible track record back home, is now beating Warren. Simply because he’s not a socialist.
Numbskulls like Ilhan Omar are ignoring these facts and joining in on the Obama bashing.
I never thought there would come a day when, as a conservative, I’d be defending Barack Obama. But that’s how far the left has fallen.
I’m no fan of Obama’s policies or his “legacy” as president. But at least he’s smart enough to warn Democrats of their impending doom. He actually wants them to succeed and is giving them the harsh truth. For that, they are turning on him.
So much for loyalty.
The amazing reality is, few Democrats will take his advice. And the liberal media will continue to support the most-radical, most-unlikeable candidates. Meanwhile, Democrats in D.C. continue to push a baseless impeachment, outraging Americans.
All of it will amount to disaster for the Dems in 2020.
Sorry Barry, it’s not your party anymore.
