Panic is setting in for former President Barack Obama.
Obama senses that everything he worked for is in massive danger.
And Barack Obama just revealed this one huge fear that keeps him up at night.
Former President Obama recently spoke at a town hall event in Iowa for the Obama Foundation.
During his remarks, Obama alluded to the fact that Democrats have moved even farther to the left than during his left-wing Presidency.
And he warned Democrat voters not to get into an ideological purity struggle when choosing candidates.
“One of the things I do worry about sometimes among progressives in the United States —maybe it’s true here as well — is a certain kind of rigidity where we say, ‘Uh, I’m sorry, this is how it’s going to be,’ and then we start sometimes creating what’s called a ‘circular firing squad,’ where you start shooting at your allies because one of them has strayed from purity on the issues,” Obama declared.
“And when that happens, typically the overall effort and movement weakens.”
“So I think whether you are speaking as a citizen or as a political leader or as an organizer, you have to recognize that the way we structure democracy requires you to take into account people who don’t agree with you, and that by definition means you’re not going to get 100 percent of what you want.”
Even Barack Obama, who ran and won in 2008 because he campaigned as the purist liberal against Hillary Clinton – who voted for the Iraq War and the Patriot Act – senses that the Democrats are wading into dangerous territory in 2020.
And Obama has everything riding on this election.
If Donald Trump wins re-election, his administration will continue to dismantle the disastrous Obama legacy.
A Democrat in the White House means the new administration will drop any appeals to Obama judges issuing temporary restraining orders thwarting Trump’s immigration agenda.
These appeals are likely to win at the Supreme Court so Democrats can enact an open border agenda through a policy of mere inaction by refusing to hear cases that would strengthen the government’s hand in dealing with illegal immigration.
The current Democrat Presidential primary’s defining feature is candidates racing to the far-left.
Every top-tier Democrat running for President endorsed the 93 trillion dollar communist “Green New Deal” program.
Democrat contenders paraded in front of notorious race-baiter Al Sharpton and pledged their support for reparations for slavery.
Democrats also endorsed other extreme positions like packing the Supreme Court with six new liberal justices, eliminating the Electoral College, and ending the filibuster.
These moves please the activist left.
But even Barack Obama knows it’s a bridge too far for American voters.
So he is trying to pull his party back from the brink of political disaster.
Do you agree with Barack Obama that Donald Trump will defeat a radical left nominee?
