Co-starring Elizabeth Warren
And Tim Kaine
Guest Starring Hillary Clinton.
Democrats have low expectations for Hillary Clinton's acceptance speech this week: She rates behind President Barack Obama and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren when it comes to the most anticipated Democratic convention speeches.
A survey of The POLITICO Caucus — a panel of activists, strategists and operatives in 11 key battleground states — finds that, despite Clinton’s imminent nomination for president, Democratic insiders think Obama and Warren will make the more effective case for their party in speeches at the Wells Fargo Center this week.
Asked who would deliver the most effective address, nearly half of Democratic insiders, 49 percent, said Obama. Another 26 percent picked Warren.
Just 10 percent chose Clinton — the same percentage that said her husband would make the most effective case for the party.
“This is Obama's party,” said a Florida Democrat, who, like all insiders, completed the survey anonymously. “He'll light the place up and pass the torch of a united party, then we'll all pray she doesn't screw it up between now and November.”
“He will be in legacy-burnishing mode and will be spectacular,” a New Hampshire Democrat said, referring to the president. “Wish he could serve another term.”
Added a Nevada Democrat: “His tenure is almost come to an end, and he has been one of the best presidents in history. There will be tears, joy and a sense of accomplishment. It will be another historic moment.”
At first my initial reaction to reading this was slack jawed astonishment. How the screaming purple monkey fuck do they view Barrack Obama “one of the best presidents in history.”
Let's take a quick look.
After a brief post election honeymoon in 2009 his approval numbers settled down into the low, low fifties and never left there unless he was dipping deeply into the forties.
The entire middle east is in flames due to his (and Hillary's) complete incompetence.
The military is in pieces on the floor, morale is lower than a mole's basement, suicides are through the roof, the equipment is more cannibalized than the main course of a Morok banquet. And Obama's response to all of these problems is to stuff trannys into uniform with the promise of paying for their sex change operations. That will solve morale problems, you betcha!
Domestic terrorism has gone from the thing that never happens to “the thing we may not talk about.”
Cops are being murdered in the streets in impressive numbers.
Racism is completely respectable so long as that race is Caucasian.
The Disney corporation feels free to blackmail an entire state over bathroom policies that they themselves would damn sure never institute at Disney World.
Unemployment statistics are constantly and frantically being redefined to pretend that the numbers aren't catastrophic.
The national debt is teetering on the edge of a cliff and the Kardashians are still on the fucking air!!!
And Barack Hussein Obama has been one of the best presidents in history!?!?!?
How the freaking hell does anyone come to that conclusion?
And then it came to me. Despite everything that has gone wrong with the country since he became president. Despite all of the terrorism. Despite the world going up in flames. Despite the crisis of legitimacy that the United States of America itself is now undergoing…
...President Obama in the face of these unspeakable odds has managed preserve the SJW delusion bubble. They can tell themselves everything is all right.
(*Cataline wipes the tears from his eyes*). Who else could have done it?
UPDATE: Obama refereed to himself 119 times during his speech about Clinton.
