Why Do Liberals Worship Obama?


I remember 2008. I remember the swelling surge of hope and optimism that captivated a generation of people, when they witnessed for the first time a black man being elected president.

It was a pretty big deal. And although I’m a staunch conservative, I’m not so much of a troglodyte that I can’t recognize the historical significance of that moment.

At the time, it was obvious how much people—particularly young people—were enamored with Barack Obama. He was young. He was charismatic. He seemed intelligent, knowledgeable, and above all inspiring. Translation: he was the perfect politician for a new, modern Democratic Party. A new America.

I can understand why many young adults got excited over him for those reasons. I can also understand why many African Americans—of all ages—supported him.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see why the liberal media and the entertainment industry loved Obama. Not only was he a liberal, but he had everything vapid, superficial, surface people loved. He said all the right things, had a winning smile, and even knew how to behave around the right people.

I mean, come on! He was so cool, it was painful!

But reality has a way of setting in. And while many people glamourized the man to Messiah-levels, the fact was Barry O’ was just another Democrat.

I know conservatives like to paint him as the devil. But if we looked at his decisions, it was clear he was simply a company man, someone whose goal was to push the liberal agenda while in office. Even if that agenda hurt Americans and damaged our country for years to come.

Because that’s what liberal policy does.

Yet today, liberals still consider Obama to have been a scandal-free, winning president. They refuse to acknowledge the shocking decisions he made that—by any standard—hurt the United States, its citizens, and its sovereignty.

My question is why? Why are liberals still so charmed by the man? Why do liberals tend to put their leaders on pedestals, to the point where they are worshiped as gods? Even when his time in office was coming to a close, there were people lamenting the fact—even Barry himself—as if he should stay president forever.

I have a theory, but we’ll get to that. First, let’s do a quick rundown on some of the bad things that came from the Obama administration.

First up: illegal immigration. I have a feeling that, outside the exploitative politicians on the left, few honest Americans want illegal immigration. Sure, those East/West coastal elitists will tell you it’s cruel to deny people illegal entry into our country. They will say it’s good to force women and children to hide in trunks and sneak over the border, through the aid of drug cartels. But they’re not the ones who suffer.

Under Barack Obama, we saw a massive spike in illegal immigration. This was thanks largely to policies he set into motion that protected illegals, even when they were caught by law enforcement.

It was so bad, back in 2015 then Senator Jeff Sessions released a lengthy document covering every time Obama violated the law in favor of illegals.

In a lengthy timeline released Monday, Sessions — the chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest — lists every instance of the Obama administration ignoring, rewriting, delaying and breaking the nation’s immigration laws…

The timeline begins in January 2009 with the administration ending worksite enforcement actions and, 50 pages later, ends on February 13, 2015 with the House Judiciary Committee’s revelation that the administration included a “sneaky” avenue for illegal immigrants granted deferred status to be placed on a pathway to citizenship. (Breitbart)

The document can be read here. For those wondering, it goes far beyond “catch and release.” It details a concerted effort by Obama and his people to suppress efforts to crack down on illegal immigration, at almost every level, to help ensure illegals aren’t punished. That includes breaking laws, delaying the implementation of rules, and outright defying law enforcement.

This, by the way, is why Democrats were so terrified of Sessions becoming Attorney General. It had nothing to do with Russia and everything to do with the fact he defied their precious golden boy Barry.

I’m guessing the many black voters that supported Obama in ’08 and ’12 would be upset to find he was helping illegals take their jobs and drive down wages. African Americans, after all, suffer more from unemployment than everyone else (although, it’s improved significantly under Trump).

But I doubt many black Americans today realize that Obama was working against their best interests. They still think he was their hero.

I can go on, like listing how Obama violated nun’s religious rights, or the many ways he violated our Bill of Rights, the many real scandals under his presidency (that cost people their lives), and the still-imploding ship that is Obamacare. Not to mention his decisions in the Middle East leading to ISIS and the Syrian civil war. You know, little stuff.

But we only have to look at recent events to show that Obama is still confounding people with his behavior. After leaving office, he and his family went on a vacation. Because he worked so hard during his presidency, you know. That’s fine, most ex-POTUS’s do get some R&R. The thing is, Obama hasn’t stopped vacationing.

The Democratic base is growing increasingly frustrated with former President Barack Obama’s actions after leaving office, including a seemingly endless tour of millionaire and billionaire luxury retreats, according to Democrats and activists contacted by Fox News…

Since leaving office in late January, Obama has visited late actor Marlon Brando’s private island; the Four Seasons in Bali -- where rooms cost upward of $2,000 per night; a Palm Springs estate; Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island; the exclusive Mid Pacific Country Club in Oahu; the 13th-century Borgo Finocchieto in Tuscany; and the Rising Sun, Hollywood studio mogul David Geffen’s private yacht…

“These trips are like the lifestyles of the rich and famous,” said Democratic strategist Pat Caddell. The former adviser to ex-President Jimmy Carter believes that President Obama’s vacations are unprecedented, and a far cry from how Carter spent his first few months out of office. (Fox News)

At a time when the Democratic Party is falling apart, their last great leader is living the high life. Rome is burning, but Nero isn’t playing the fiddle, he’s out partying in Spain!
