Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has failed to drum up enthusiasm from her supporters throughout this election cycle, so she is having to rely on President Barack Obama to make her case to the American people — which is just really sad.
Obama has been more than willing to attend various fundraisers and campaign rallies for Clinton (after all, it’s not like he has an actual job or anything) and has proclaimed to the highest heavens that she is the most qualified person ever to run for president.
The Make America Number 1 super PAC, however, has released a series of ads showing just how much of a hypocrite Obama is. Even though Obama says that Clinton is the perfect candidate now, back in 2008 when he was running against her he couldn’t stop criticizing her.
“I expected this out of (Arizona Sen.) John McCain, but I’ve gotta say, I’m a little disappointed when I hear the exact same talking points coming out of my Democratic colleague, Hillary Clinton,” said Obama during a campaign stop in 2008.
“She knows better. She knows better. Shame on her,” he said.
So the same person that Obama publicly chastised for making similar points as a Republican presidential candidate in 2008 is the same person that he is championing as the fighter for liberal causes in 2016.
Clinton hasn’t had much of a problem repeating things that Republican rival Donald Trump has said during this election, but she has been forced to play Trump’s game — to follow his lead and to respond to his comments.
Perhaps Obama should focus more on running the country and spend less time trying to defend a candidate that he so passionately fought against a little less than eight years ago.
