Trump is pretty much Obama's jukebox that gets fist-slapped by the Fonz at the beginning of an episode of Happy Days.  All Obama has to do is just give him a quick pop and he can't stop squealing.

"trump is a know-it-all who is almost impossible to disabuse of boneheaded ideas: Climate change is a hoax; China pays his tariffs; the coronavirus will magically go away. Trump is also racist, and on some level it may be impossible for him to accept that a black man had a successful, scandal-free eight years as president while he has presided over a shambolic mess and faces the likelihood of a humiliating defeat."

Want to keep bringing up one of the more popular presidents of the last century and comparing your dumpster fire of a presidency to him?

motivating black voters to turn out in the fall for Obama's loyal wingman, Biden.

That really is the thing. Biden was a loyal sidekick who in 8 years never tried to steal the limelight from Obama, and it's one of the reasons why he kicked ass among the black voters in the primaries.

Impossible, Trump has never failed at anything in his entire life, just ask him.  This can only be a winning move, he should proceed.

Yeah I forgot if it was posted here or elsewhere, but there was a great article about how to African-American voters Biden was a team player for Obama from day one, never trying to undermine or spar with him, despite being the older white politician to the younger African-American politcian (when a number of people in the position of the former may try to talk down to one of the latter), and African-American voters are not forgetting about that.

The canny id-like ploy is to rouse up his base and keep them in line. He was elected on the back of Hilary's emails and what he needs is for the NYT idiots to bite on a new narrative. I can see the convention speeches as a cavalcade of "lock him up!" chants once again, because conservatives are sort of like diseased goblinoids instead of people.

The problem is every attack on Obama is a low level "are you better off now than you were four years ago?" Even dipshiat moderates sorta have good feelings for Obama. It's hard to latch onto Biden. He's a grinning old white guy; so what? But lashing him onto the magnificent central spire of Obama's manhood, they... wait... what was I saying?

Duh. Obamagate.
It seems pretty obvious that Obama took the Antarctica Stargate and applied his advance knowledge of solar flares to use the gate's time travel capability to, among other things, plant evidence of his supposed birth in Hawaii and obtain a genetically engineered COVID virus from the future to make Trump look bad.

Of course it will backfire.

100% of the people who thing Obama was the dictator Antichrist already will vote for Trump even if he shoots someone on 5th Avenue.

0% of moderates will vote for Trump because he says Obama was bad, they will vote for the guy who thinks has a better shot at improving their lives the next 4 years.

Seriously. An older white guy who had zero problem having a black guy as his boss and was willing to just go "You got this, man. What do you need from me?"  You will never see that from the GOP.
 
2020-05-19 6:13:02 PM  
This is what I took away from that article.  And I'm paraphrasing one small part...

"Democratic voter turnout was lower than expected last time."
This is because people were pretty well convinced that Hillary had already won, so there was no point in wasting the time voting.

"One person is known to bring out Democratic voters in massive numbers.  Obama.  And he is becoming more and more active."
Yeah, man!  That dude is doing what most other former Presidents would never do.  He is vocally, and loudly, saying that the current administration must be beaten to death with no mercy.  But in the true Obama fashion, he is doing it very politely and without being too direct (or insulting).

Get out and vote people!

And by that I mean, vote for Biden!

In the same way most Trump supporters aren't injecting Lysol most Trump supporters know that Trump is an inferior President. So bringing up the comparison just makes his supporters sad.

Have you ever seen an Uno deck?  It's four colors (suits), and numbered, other than the special cards.

Your comment is not funny because you actually CAN play solitaire with an Uno deck.

NSA: We concur and will identify the person.
Obama Admin: Holy shiat! That was Mike Flynn! Isn't he gonna be Trump's National Security Advisor? We better warn them.
Obama to Trump: Don't hire Flynn. He's up to some shady business.
Trump: If you don't like him he must be good. I'm hiring him so NYAA!
