During an interview, Obama said the Democratic Party (Marxist/Progressive Party) faces a “challenge” because many of the same white working-class voters who supported him in 2008 and 2012 did not vote for Democrats during midterm elections and supported President-elect Donald Trump in 2016.
“And I think that part of it has to do with our inability, our failure, to reach those voters effectively,” Obama said. “Part of it is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country, but part of it is also Democrats not working at a grassroots level, being in there, showing up, making arguments.”
“That part of the critique of the Democratic Party is accurate,” he added. “We spend a lot of time focused on international policy and national policy and less time being on the ground. And when we’re on the ground, we do well. This is why I won Iowa.”
Obama said another component of the “challenge” is that “people are getting a hundred different visions of the world from a hundred different outlets or a thousand different outlets, and that is ramping up divisions,” adding:
It’s making people exaggerate or say what’s most controversial or peddling in the most vicious of insults or lies, because that attracts eyeballs. And if we are gonna solve that, it’s not going to be simply an issue of subsidizing or propping up traditional media; it’s going to be figuring out how do we organize in a virtual world the same way we organize in the physical world. We have to come up with new models.
Asked if he believes the United States is a “progressive country,” Obama replied, “I think that nothing is determined.”
“But that the number of people who have a strong belief in a fair, just, equal, inclusive America is the majority and is growing,” he added.
The Marxist/Progressives will blame anything they can for the election results, but refuse to understand that many Americans understand that because of the Marxist/Progressive policies of Obama and others, the United States is a less free nation and is less safe. Obama and his Marxist comrades do not understand that Americans do not believe the United States is the most evil imperialist empire in the world and should apologize for its success.
Americans do not agree that they should feel guilty because they have achieved success while others have not. Americans understand that results are not the responsibility of the government. Americans understand that sharing wealth is a myth that only makes everybody less prosperous. Americans are not jealous of the success of others, they just ask for an opportunity to achieve their dreams. Americans understand that government is the single biggest threat to their ability to strive for their dreams.
Americans do not believe that the United States is a racist nation, in fact, the vast majority of Americans are blind to color and religion. Americans are the most forgiving of all peoples because we are a conglomeration of nationalities, races, and religion, both as a nation and individually. Americans resent being total that they hate other people, when in fact we do not.
Americans do not respect nor do they believe in political correctness. Americans believe in speaking openly and honestly. Americans are a kind and caring people, but abhor dishonesty and manipulation.
Obama and his Marxist/Progressives are everything Americans dislike and disrespect. This is why the Democrats (Marxist/Progressives) have lost so badly over the last several years. Many more Americans voted in this election than did Marxist/Progressives. Despite the indoctrination of our youth, the love of freedom and the belief in hard work as opposed to tyranny and government dependence, the values of our founders championed over the values of Marx and the Marxist/Progressives.
And this Obama is why the election turned out the way it did. It had nothing to do with Fox News.
