President Obama admitted he cried at a recent senior staff send-off dinner and is now claiming that hed be able to get re-elected if he had run for president again.
I am confident in this vision because Im confident that if I had run again and articulated it, I think I couldve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it, Obama said in a The Axe Files podcast interview by former aide David Axelrod.
I know that in conversations that Ive 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,' the outgoing president said.

But, you know. I think Trump would have campaigned differently. I still think he would have won. No telling what he would have come up with.
I’m certain he and his ilk are loaded with vast overseas accounts.
Even the most deluded of fools could not have mucked up foreign policy as much as this. They were no doubt just making deals for themselves and working for the highest bidder at every turn

EXCERPT-----As President Obama concludes his reign of error, his party is smaller, weaker and ricketier than it has been since at least the 1940s. Behold the tremendous power that Democrats have frittered away from January 2009 through the aftermath of Election Day thanks to Obama and his ideas:
Democrats surrendered the White House to political neophyte Donald J. Trump.
US Senate seats slipped from 55 to 46, down 16 percent.
US House seats fell from 256 to 194, down 24 percent.
Democrats ran the Senate and House in 2009. Next year, they will control neither.
Governorships slid from 28 to 16, down 43 percent.
State legislatures (both chambers) plunged from 27 to 14, down 48 percent.
Trifectas (states with Democrat governors and both legislative chambers) cratered from 17 to 6, down 65 percent.
Obama. What a pussy.
Great Info Liz. Thank You for posting!
This dangerous megalomaniac clearly got into American politics under false pretenses.
His disgusting European apology tour certainly proved his rank hatred of America. His capabilities in office demonstrated a remarkable proclivity for looting the US Treasury.
In it only for the money, you say? You betcha. The Washington Times says he leaves office as a billionaire.....and plans to shake the money tree bigtime (coached by those practiced grifting experts....the Clintons).
The clock is ticking, his time in the White House is fading....but Obama is not going quietly. Boobamba left Americans a divided nation, trillions in debt, and a cartload of parasitic freeloaders sucking up our tax dollars, many of whom plan to kill us.
If that wasnt enough Boobamba says he intends to stay active....to take years and years to transform America even more. He's proud he fundamentally transformed the nation we loved into a violent, hate-filled place.
All of this is fodder for his foundations. The reality is the Boob and the missus got rich in office and intend to get even richer via an endless presidency......ala the crooked Clintons.
The Obamas are only interested in accumulating tons of money---and creating ways to loot and pillage the US Treasury. These two Chicago crime kingpins got plenty of tricks up their sleeves.
What a self centered baby.
Had he been running the RAT fraud machine would have been running at flank speed instead of all ahead full!
delusional deadbeat, shameless degenerate, egotistical @sshole
Obama gave Mrs O $100 million tax dollars from the State Dept's Millennium Challenge Corporation (chaired by Hillary) on her recent visit to Morocco, to "teach Muslim girls".
The 100 million tax dollars are to be held by, and doled out by, the post-presidency tax-exempt Obama Foundation.
LOOK AT THAT SMILE Michele, her daughters and her mother in
Morocco's palace. 100 million dollars to spend when she and Mr O
get back to Chicago
That is true. Trump might have adapted, but I think the headwinds would have been stronger. Hillary was not a good candidate, which is why Obama was about to steal away “her” coronation in 2008.
And quite frankly, we are profoundly lucky that happened. If it had been two terms of Hillary (starting in 2008), Obama might have a shoe-in in 2016. I think Hillary would have easily dispatched any other Republican save Trump. Why? Because Trump fights without apology.
Probably starting with his college a applications, he got ahead by saying and doing what "the man" wanted. His wisdom seems to consistently have been an ability to read that. He learned well from his white background, playing the black card. Heck, he's so light-skinned it's a choice to be black. He's the son of privilege, not a descendent of slaves with a real claim to be part of the heritage of the US. Someone among the global puppetmaster elite early in his career recognized that with a US mother they could move him up the political ladder in the US, in spite of probably being an Indonesian citizen at that time.
That's my purely speculative take on him, anyway. In my adventures in urban substituting (ended over three years ago), I came to recognize that type personality. They were the ones who could get a person in a tough situation through the day, just don't be hostile to their leadership.
Is that too unkind?
“I couldve mobilized a majority of the American people”
As Hillary found, the rule don’t bestow a win based on popular vote.
Reelecting Obama would have been unconstitutional, but that doesn’t matter since most of what Obama did in power was unconstitutional.
It's unseemly that he's not around for the transition, for so many reason, not the least beginning to move out. My dream is that some situation makes it impossible for him to return to DC before the Inauguration.
You are right about the headwinds. But guess what we WON so who cares now. Let’s enjoy. Can’t wait till Trump is sworn in by Justice Clarence Thomas on January 20, 2017.
The Founders' vision was that of citizen-patriots who, for a limited time, left private life to serve in government. They never anticipated today's career politicians who spend their entire adult lives feeding at the public trough. The Amendment process is the way to correct this oversight.
