Barack Obama was left in ruins after a stunning betrayal no could believe
Barack Obama lorded over the Democrat Party since 2008.
But no longer.
That’s because this stunning betrayal left Barack Obama’s legacy in ruins.
Ilhan Omar keeps digging a deeper hole.
In an interview with Politico, the Muslim Congresswoman attacked a drone program to kill suspected terrorists.
She even accused Barack Obama of ‘getting away with murder’ and said he was not better than Trump policy-wise.
As she saw it, the party ostensibly committed to progressive values had become complicit in perpetuating the status quo. Omar says the “hope and change” offered by Barack Obama was a mirage. Recalling the “caging of kids” at the U.S.-Mexico border and the “droning of countries around the world” on Obama’s watch, she argues that the Democratic president operated within the same fundamentally broken framework as his Republican successor.
“We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” Omar says. “And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”
Democrats were stunned to see Omar go after a sacred cow on the left like Obama.
But conservatives were not.
They noted that Omar feels she is invincible.
That’s because the party’s left-wing base pressured leadership to back down on a resolution condemning her anti-Semitic remarks even though it never mentioned her by name.
However, Omar is playing with fire.
Obama is still very popular in the Democrat Party and this could be the excuse the national party needs to recruit a primary challenger to get rid of her.
