That stunning question came just days after Donald Trump captured the White House. It was perhaps the first time the self-aggrandizing Obama came face-to-face with reality… and it wasn’t pretty.
The “Seismic event” within the wee hours of November 9th shell-shocked the progressive establishment down to its core. In fact, the “after-shocks” of the 2016 election are still reverberating throughout the political landscape, even to this today.
The astonishing revelation of Obama’s self-doubt, as he struggled to make sense of Clinton’s unimaginable lose, has been penned by former adviser Ben Rhodes in his new book scheduled for release in June
The memoir titled “The World as It Is,” attempts to put a positives spin by those minions close to Obama, reassuring the former president that if he were allowed to run for a third term, he would have won re-election, which perhaps illustrates just how delusional the left has become, along with the irrational conclusion among his loyalists.
Rhodes attempts to chronicle the wide mood swings exhibited by the former president, alternating between optimism and dejection. An excerpt from the book captured a dispirited Obama lamenting to an aid, “Sometimes I wonder whether I was 10 or 20 years too early.”
Adding, “Maybe we pushed too far. … Maybe people just want to fall back into their tribe.”
That line perhaps best reveals Obama’s utter contempt for America’s sovereignty as a nation and his desire for open and unsecured borders.
Rhodes chronicles Obama coming to terms the day after the election by a message he received from the former president, “There are more stars in the sky than grains of sand on the earth,” the book then quotes Obama saying, “Maybe this is what people want.”
Obama aware that his legacy would perhaps end-up in tatters, after Trump took the oath-of-office, promising to end ObamaCare, which had driven the economy into the tank with the worst GDP rate recorded by any president in recent history, attempts to take credit for the economy exclaiming to Rhodes, “Maybe this is what people want. I’ve got the economy set up well for him. No facts. No consequences. They can just have a cartoon.”
“I feel like Michael Corleone,” Obama reportedly said, referencing “The Godfather” character as he prepared to hand over the White House to Trump. “I almost got out.”
The book also clearly chronicles the shifting geopolitical climate and the fundamental differences between the two diametrically opposed ideologies, between Obama vision of a one world government and Trump’s call for patriotic nationalism.
According to Rhodes the German Chancellor Angela Merkel had a “single tear in her eye” when her progressive soul mate met for the last time as president. Obama lamented upon reflection that “she’s all alone” to defend his liberal principles.
However perhaps the most revealing aspect of the impending political earthquake and the arrogance of the progressive political class was in their blind embrace of perhaps the worst candidate to ever run for the presidency, and the stunning HBO documentary that night of what was about to happen.
The video chronicles a shell-shocked Rhodes who was at Clinton’s campaign headquarters when the incredible news flashed across the world that Donald J. Trump did the impossible becoming the 45th President of the United States.
“I couldn’t shake the feeling that I should have seen it coming,” he writes. “Because when you distilled it, stripped out the racism and misogyny, we’d run against Hillary eight years ago with the same message Trump had used: She’s part of a corrupt establishment that can’t be trusted to bring change.”
Rhodes’ memoir sounds more like a work of fiction, attempting to give credence to Obama’s shattered presidency. The irony, of course, is without Obama there probably wouldn’t have been a Trump Presidency.
