Obama: 'Sometimes People Forget I'm Not Running for Office Again'

At a stop in San Francisco on a three-day fund raising swing along the West Coast, President Obama said during a speech that "sometimes people forget I'm not running for office again."  The president was talking about Republicans in Congress and the immigration reform that he is trying to get through the House:

Quote
And some of them even forget that I'm -- sometimes people forget I'm not running for office again.  Michelle doesn’t forget.   (Laughter and applause.)  So you don’t have to worry about this somehow being good for me.  This is good for the country.   It's the right thing to do for the American people.


A remark the president made at his first stop on the tour, the Seattle home of Jon Shirley, may give some insight into why some forget the president isn't running again:

Well, first of all, let me just thank Jon for the second time for his incredible hospitality.  And I think it’s fair to say that between Nancy and me and Steve Israel, we do a lot of events.  I will say that this particular space is one of the more spectacular venues for an event.


The president's schedule lists several Democrat party events for Monday alone:

It's not that we want him to work, it's just that we hate paying for him to perpetually campaign.
The only difference between the Democrats and the Republicans is that the Democrats allow the poor to be corrupt, too.

Well, neither was Stalin.

The absolute, utter gall of this man is staggering. His instinctive need to continuously poke his finger in the eyes of his opponents makes him truly insufferable.

All he ever does is campaign, make photo-op speeches and conduct fund-raisers at the homes of the wealthy. He knows that no one needs a reminder that he can't run for office again, but he says it anyway and in his usual "straw man" fashion, "There are some who say: blahblahblah..."

Obama is both dishonest and disingenuous. He demeans and dismisses those with whom he disagrees. He has created a trail of destruction in his wake such as might never be repaired, and blamed the damage on others for good measure. The man is an ambulatory disaster who spins up antagonism and hurls animosity around like a tornado, wherever he goes.

And, sadly, he's still on the ground in search of more things that other people "didn't build", to wreck.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Obama makes me physically ill.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Obama forgets he is not running for office, since he spends all his time campaigning.
