President Obama raised a few eyebrows last night, as he spoke to Democratic donors in New York City.
He focused on a new “project” that he will be working on after he leaves the White House.
The president reportedly said, “Now, I intend to get as much done in the next 22 months as possible. As you’ve noticed, I’ve been pretty busy — (laughter) — and I will continue to be. And I’m hopeful that we may find some opportunities for collaboration with the Republican Congress — for example, on trade. Hopefully, on infrastructure. There may be some things where there’s some convergence. But if we’re going to deliver on the promise that’s there for all of us, then we’re still going to need to realign our budgets to our values, and we’re going to have to fight for priorities like immigration reform,” Obama said, according a transcript provided by the White House.”
He continued, “And those battles are going to depend, in large part, on the continuing effort in the political arena. And we’ve got to have strong candidates. But more importantly, we’ve got to have an engaged citizenry. And that’s why, despite the fact, as Michelle helpfully reminds me, I don’t have another race to run — (laughter) — and she’s pretty happy about that — that’s why I’m here this evening. And I know that’s why you’re here. Because this is not a project that stops after a certain term in office, and it’s not a project that stops after an election. This is something that we have to sustain over the long term.”
The remarks were made at a private home, where a Democratic National Committee fundraiser was being held.
Given that Obama has expanded the size of federal government more than any president in U.S. history, it is frightening to even imagine what his new “project” may be. He continues to incite racial tensions, make it harder for U.S. businesses to operate, and increase the size of the welfare state…
Once he’s out of office, we hope to never hear from him again.
