President Obama warned his fellow Democrats that they could run into trouble later this year because midterm elections just aren’t that sexy. Seriously, he said that.
President Obama warned that Democrats often get into trouble during the midterm elections because state-level races aren’t as “sexy” as national presidential elections during a meeting with Democratic governors and party donors Thursday night.
“We know how to win national elections,” Obama said. “But all too often it’s during these midterms where we end up getting ourselves into trouble because, I guess we don’t think it’s sexy enough.” (Read More)
I guess his comments shouldn’t come as a surprise, considering that he’s the social media president who is much more interested in his image and having a leisurely good time. In his mind, politics is only sexy if he’s the one in the spotlight. For him, everything is awesome.
Barack Obama is the first President optimized for SEO and therein lies the problem. When #Venezuela and #Kiev are the top trends on Twitter for two days straight and not #HouseOfCards or #TrueDetective, the online persona machine that elected Barack Obama goes dark and resorts to a spam account selling us crappy insurance.
At the height of violence that erupted with both protests this past weekend, where was he? Hosting a Hollywood premiere style party for #GeorgeClooney and cast of his film #TheMonumentsMen, in private at the White House, simply because he could. Right now in Kiev, historical statues and art are being burned in front of the world. He was content to remain silent and watch a movie about it happening instead. The real world does not interest this President. The set design does.
If you only have time to read one more article today finish reading this one. It perfectly sums up this presidency. Every place in the world is worse off after 5 years of Obama’s “leadership.” He’s not interested in foreign policy. He’s busy with other things. He only takes time off from his fun and games to sign some executive orders and deliver tired old campaign speeches. Oh, and to delay major parts of Obamacare, which he probably thinks is sexy.
