While Obama, family and entourage are on the $3.5 million taxpayer funded vacation in Hawaii, Obama, in an interview with NPR, accused Donald Trump of “exploiting anger and frustration among blue-collar workers who are falling behind in the new economy.”
New economy? Is Obama implying what we have now is what will be? If so, plenty of Americans have something to be angry and frustrated about.
From the Washington Times:
In an interview with NPR, the president said Mr. Trump’s campaign is benefiting from frustration among Republicans, particularly male voters, who are reacting to an increasingly multicultural society. He told reporter Steve Inskeep that “demographic change,” flat wages and the influence of technology have resulted in many blue-collar men being unable to support their families on a single paycheck.
“You combine those things, and it means that there is going to be potential anger, frustration, fear,” Mr. Obama said. “Some of it justified, but just misdirected. I think somebody like Mr. Trump is taking advantage of that. That’s what he’s exploiting during the course of his campaign.”
The president’s analysis was reminiscent of his comments in 2008, when he blamed economically disadvantaged voters who were “bitter” and “cling to guns or religion” for his poor showing among small-town Pennsylvanians in the Democratic primary.
In reviewing this several times, Obama recognized the problems he instigated and promoted to the detriment of this nations’ citizenry, but he doesn’t care. Instead, he blames the public for a bad reaction to his engineered “multicultural society,” flat wages, demographic changes to benefit the Democrat Party. Everything Obama has done is intentional; he knows it. It isn’t just blue-collar workers but they have been hit the hardest. How else would one expect the public to act when your country’s own leader intentionally works to devastate your ability to earn a living and destroy your culture and way of life?
Typical Obama to blame everyone else and anything else for his own shortcomings and failures.
Obama even stated directly, blue-collar workers “have had a lot of trouble in this new economy, where they are no longer getting the same bargain that they were when they were going to a factory and able to support their families on a single paycheck.”
Again, there is the “new economy” mentioned. It is apparent that Obama, with assistance, has engineered the economy this way and made it worse for blue-collar workers. One has to assume this was his intent. Yet, he wants to take a cheap shot at Republican candidate Donald Trump as taking advantage of a situation Obama himself created.
No one realizes that Trump didn’t have to take advantage of the situation. All he had to do was speak his mind, which happens to be the mind of a good many Americans right now.
The interview quickly turned to ISIS and then climate change. Neither of these issues are as important to Americans as the ability to make a living and provide for their family and themselves. Obama and the $1.1 trillion omnibus bill passed by both chambers for the upcoming year will have devastating effects on the middle class and those barely hitting the middle class rung.
As it appears from the actions of Congress and Obama, there is no one truly representing the average American. Many people are beginning to believe they have a government without representation that keeps piling higher and deeper a debt they are powerless to stop. Republicans begged the people for votes on the campaign rhetoric to stop Obama. In the end, Republicans handed Obama everything while stabbing Americans in the back after the people gave them a Senate majority.. The trust factor is gone. Republicans are seen no better than Democrats; which in comparing the two, these parties are like different cheeks of the same butt.
For seven years, the American public listened to iie after lie come out of the mouth of Obama and their representatives in Washington. The founding fathers would never have let things go this far. But, Americans, trying to look on the optimistic side, keep going along hoping things change. Nothing has changed and everything is worse.
Enter Donald Trump. He says what is on his mind, which is the same things most Americans are saying. He is not GOP establishment. He doesn’t apologize for his statements. He declares he will bring issues back to the people if Congress continues its incompetent, negligent, dereliction of duty path. He focuses on the issues Americans find important, instead of poking the farce that is climate change down their throats, as Obama has done.
Trump exhibits a bold, brash, no fear demeanor that while abrasive to some, it encourages all to know there are men who are strong and can be strong leaders in touch with the people. He holds the nation in highest regard, demonstrates respect and refuses to demean the country; unlike Obama, who has taken every opportunity to patronize, demean, disrespect and chastise America and her people.
Americans are tired of two-faced, lying, good for nothing charlatan politicians. Trump’s character is viewed by many of his supporters in a positive light. He presents himself with dignity, stands on integrity, and presents a blunt honesty that has infected the people. He has brought excitement to the GOP and politics in general. One cannot deny that he is entertaining on the media front.
As always, no one should judge a politician by their cover. Unfortunately, America did that with Obama and voted to prove a point — that racism was on the way out. However, it wasn’t as the race pot was stirred by Obama more than one does when making divinity. With Obama, America elected a man who hates America, her people, her values, her principles, her government and her history. Because of his animosity, he has done everything possible to destroy her. And, if we are not careful, he will succeed in his last year in office.
Interestingly enough, the people do not view Trump as a politician, but a businessman, tired of the demeaning of the nation and her people, entering the political arena to try and restore her to her former glory — before men started tearing her down. With their enamoring comes the tendency to overlook missteps, mistakes, and misstatements, along with the brash and brazen nature of a self-made man who rose to his height by being fearless.
As the GOP and Democrats are finding out, Trump has been the wildcard they all now have to out Trump. Obama can continue his patronization, his eluding to developing this “new economy” to kill blue-collar workers with a “couldn’t care less” attitude, and his condescension against Trump and supporters of Trump. All this will do is elevate support for Trump while killing support for Democrats and establishment Republicans.
Obama, along with being the nation’s best gun salesman, might be the nation’s best Trump salesman if he continues his arrogant, narcissistic, self-serving commentary.
