“You are just a vote” is right. Sadly, and they’ll say anything for it. For years we’ve been trying to make the Dems own Barack Obama and his policies.
But the reality is Barack Obama owns them, lock and stock. They were bought in the “change you can believe in” auction. He’s their master whether they admit it or not.
See the Democrats run away from him? But he arrogantly says the Dems are his voters, too. And he’s right, lockstep they are his along with the Democrats in Congress.
[Roll Call] “I am not on the ballot this fall. Michelle’s pretty happy about that. But make no mistake: These policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them,” Obama said in prepared remarks at Northwestern University.
“This isn’t a political speech, and I’m not going to tell you who to vote for — even though I suppose it is kind of implied,” Obama said, in a sentence that became an immediate head-scratcher as the president launched into a litany of attacks on the GOP.
Obama said these are the folks who voted with him, and he is going to get that vote out.
“The bottom line is, though, these are all folks who vote with me. They have supported my agenda in Congress,” Obama said on Al Sharpton’s radio show….
“So, this isn’t about my feelings being hurt,” he said. “These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me. And I tell them, I said, ‘You know what, you do what you need to win. I will be responsible for making sure that our voters turn up.'” — CNN
Josh Earnest explained:
“Here’s the other thing: the Democrats are going to be counting on Hispanics, African-Americans, young people, young women in particular to turn out [in the midterm] elections. The president got them to turn out in 2008 and 2012.“
Why not tell Obama, ‘you didn’t build that’…nor did Democrats, the overseers?
