I’m sorry, do you need a moment to compose yourself? Are you laughing too hard?
President Obama made some outrageous remarks during an address to the African Union in Ethiopia – and even for those who are used to regarding his remarks as somewhat off the wall, or outright untrue, this one really takes the cake.
What could he possibly say that would make us all laugh so hard? Oh, it’s precious.
Well, here’s a hint: It has to do with this last presidential election. And it wasn’t so much about Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton as it was about his favorite topic of conversation: himself.
He said, as Joe For America reported:
“I actually think I’m a pretty good president. I think if I ran again, I could win. But I can’t. The law is the law and no one person is above the law, not even the president.”
That’s a jaw-dropper, all right.
The fact that Obama seriously thinks he acts as if he’s not above the law is beyond belief. Recall: Obama is the “pen and phone” president, a moniker earned because of his penchant for bypassing Congress and the legislative process, not to mention the duly elected, the will of the people and the Constitution, in favor of pushing his own pet projects and policies in a unilateral – read, King – fashion.
But that’s not the worst of what he said.
What’s eye-opening is his belief he could win a third term.
From Joe For America:
“According to the Rasmussen Reports poll, only one-third of Americans would vote for Obama if he ran for a third term, assuming that was constitutionally possible. Perhaps the president needs a refresher course on fractions, because one-third isn’t exactly a majority.”
Yes, indeed. But the results of the poll are even worse for Obama when you go a bit deeper. Only 57 percent of Democrats said they would’ve voted for him, while – and this is the shocking part – 63 percent of all likely voters wouldn’t buy into him being president for a third term.
So where’s Obama come up with the idea he would’ve won a third term?
Here’s a hint: It’s the same place in his mind he visited when he pulled that famous Obamacare-era line, “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”
That’s right; the land of Delusion and Lies.
