For some reason, Joe Scarborough decided to start “Morning Joe” today by playing Obama’s now infamous “heal the world” speech. What makes it funny is that Scarborough only seems to have played the speech just to mock Obama supporters and call them suckers. Hey, that’s as good of a reason as any!
“Oh yes, praise Obama. All praise the mighty Obama,” he said.
“You believed that. Everybody believed that,” Scarborough said. “That was insane.”
“You’ve got one guy … reality TV show guy, and the other guy who thinks he’s Moses, that he’s a Messiah,” Scarborough said of Trump and Obama.
Deutsch charged that Scarborough was trying to compare “the gravitas, the intelligence” of the two.
“I’m not suggesting that at all,” Scarborough said, going into an imitation of Trump’s promises about his southern border wall. “He has every bit as much of a chance of doing that as Barack Obama’s Jesus routine there, where he’s going to be Moses and generations were going to look back at the election of Barack Obama as the day the world healed.”
Scarborough called Obama voters “suckers” for buying his lofty rhetoric.
Suckers born every minute.
Yes, he’s right. People bought into Obama’s messiah complex, his Greek pillars, all of it hook, line and sinker. They made him into a hero. They worshiped at his feet. Obama’s supporters believed the sea levels would fall. His followers believed the world would be a better place. They were fooled by the persona, and projected their greatest national desires onto a man who said nothing better than anyone.
8 years later we know the hype was just that. Obama molded himself into a hero, a healer, but has been anything but. He hoodwinked a great number of Americans into thinking he was the solution to whatever problem ailed them.
Now we have Hillary Clinton making similar promises. As if everyone is supposed to forget the Great Hero Obama was president for the last 8 years. What has happened under the “esteemed” leadership of Obama? Well sea levels haven’t lessened. Terrorism? That’s been on the uptick. ObamaCare? The costs of healthcare are rising. The economy? Hasn’t really rebounded as much as some gullible twerps once hoped.
Lesson? Voters should never put their unwavering trust in a political leader. I don’t care what letter comes after his or her name.
