Obama Obliterates Progressives Ahead of 2022 Midterms

Linkedin Share

The Democratic Party has been in some form of civil war for years now, as the radical left continues to weaponize the youth of the party against the moderate, centrist “old guard”.

The conflict has certainly taken its toll on the left, as evidenced by the trouncing of Hillary Clinton in 2016 after Bernie Sanders was again stymied by the DNC and the far-left simply refused to vote for the former First Lady.

Now, with the midterm elections just around the corner, one of the Democrats’ most powerful forces is taking a swipe at the progressive posse, in a statement that has shocked the party to its core.

Former President Barack Obama took some shots at his fellow Democrats, calling them ‘buzzkills’ and says their rhetoric forces people to ‘walk on eggshells.’

Obama, speaking to four of his former employees on the Pod Save America podcast, said that some people within his party need to cool down the temperature and understand that everyone makes mistakes.

He said: ‘Sometimes Democrats are [buzzkills]. Sometimes people just want to not feel as if they are walking on eggshells, and they want some acknowledgment that life is messy and that all of us, at any given moment, can say things the wrong way, make mistakes.’

And that wasn’t all…

Obama added that his fellow Dems should learn from what he felt were his mistakes as president, saying: ‘I used to get into trouble whenever, as you guys know well, whenever I got a little too professorial and, you know, started … when I was behind the podium as opposed to when I was in a crowd, there were times where I’d get, you know, sound like I was giving a bunch of policy gobbledygook.’

He noted: ‘That’s not how people think about these issues. They think about them in terms of the life I’m leading day to day. How does politics, how is it even relevant to the things that I care the most deeply about?’

The sentiment isn’t exactly what the Democratic Party needs at the moment, as President Joe Biden continues to consider running again in 2024 – a race that certainly will not be won by a centrist on either side of the aisle.
