Obama: I could have won if I ran again

Posted by | December 26, 2016 09:31 | Filed under: Politics

President Obama believes his message of hope and change would still win the day.

“I am confident in this vision because I’m confident that if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it,” Obama told his former senior adviser David Axelrod in an interview for the “The Axe Files” podcast, produced by the University of Chicago Institute of Politics and CNN.

“I know that in conversations that I’ve had with people around the country, even some people who disagreed with me, they would say the vision, the direction that you point towards is the right one,” Obama said in the interview, which aired Monday.

    Oh boy, now all of the tin foil-clad loons from Donnie’s support base are going to convince themselves that Obama had been conspiring to do just that … but somehow Trump managed to save the day.

      I think that President Obama is just yanking trump’s chain. A little boxing day gift to us, if you will.

    Yea, just about anyone not named Hillary Clinton could have beat Trump. So what. The Democratic party decided they wanted a President Trump, so we have one. Whoopie!

      No, the Democratic party did not decide they wanted a President Trump. Don’t know why you feel the urge to post such misinformation even as satire.

      Regardless of motivation, it has no basis in fact, which even good satire is supposed to have.

        They pushed the least electable candidate possible for the nomination. Though I suppose they would have been happy with any republican, not just Trump specifically.

      This is what you wanted you low info. fox
      watching rural dummies, now we’re stuck
      with this embarassment for at least 4 years,
      he’s already gone back on most of his
      promises to you deplorables.

        LOL _I_ didn’t want Trump to win. I’m not a (spit) Democrat, and certainly not a (barf) Republican. Those two groups are the ones who worked hard for a Republican win of the white house.

    Obama conducted himself with dignity and grace
    and lent great stature to the office of the presidency,
    I’m proud to have had him as my president and wish
    we could keep him for eight more years!
