Pretty much all, if not all, state Democratic Parties hold an annual fundraising dinner named after Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson. Because democrats hate these great Americans, much like they hate America, these dinners have become a point of contention with the radical leftists who think the two former presidents are evil racists. The democrats in Colorado have decided it’s too intolerable to be associated with white men who help found and shape our nation so they’ve renamed the dinner after the least great American of all time: Barack Obama.
This is not a joke, though The Hill has a punchline anyways:
The dinner was originally called the “Jefferson-Jackson Dinner,” after Presidents Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson.
Democratic parties across the country used to hold annual fundraising dinners under that name, but have begun changing it in recent years.
The Colorado Democratic Party is renaming its annual dinner the “Obama Dinner.”
Yeah, it’s not just Barack, but Michelle too:
The dinner is being named after both former President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama, with the party’s executive director Pilar Chapa saying the move was to recognize the couple’s “historic contributions.”
See, I told you there was a punchline. After you stop laughing and are wondering what the Obamas’ historic contributions are, here they are:
Chapa listed the passage of ObamaCare, economic growth and work on climate change as efforts that “cemented President Obama’s legacy as a transformational leader of our country.”
Chapa also cited Michelle Obama’s work on children’s health programs and for military families.
Let’s see if I have this straight: Obama rammed through a law that forced people to buy a product from a private company that they didn’t want and because of that health care premiums went through the roof and that’s a good thing? And then there’s they slowest economic growth in US history under Obama and the democrats still think that’s an great accomplishment? Well, at least Obama stopped man-made global warming, right? Maybe not.
Even funnier is the line about Michelle’s work on children’s health. She danced with a vegetable and forced all school children to eat terrible tasting small portion lunches. Thankfully the Trump administration just eliminated that nonsense. In reality, all the Obamas’ legacy has been completely undone in the previous 12 months, which kind of indicates that their contributions were weak and unimpressive.
“The Obama legacy embodies the values we hold as Democrats, and we are beyond proud to rename our annual dinner after our former first family,” said Chapa.
Of course they are proud of Obama’s legacy. Democrats are morons who love stupid things and praise failure. They certainly wouldn’t want to be associated with someone who helped form our nation or someone who defended this country against foreign invaders, but they want to be joined at the hip with the laziest most useless bum that ever lived in the White House.
A couple of years ago the Connecticut Democratic Party renamed their Jefferson-Jackson dinner after no one in particular because the NAACP made them. Apparently those two great American Presidents and heroes were a little too racist for the party of slavery, the KKK, and Jim Crow.
I’m actually fine with the democrats running from Jefferson and Jackson. I’m glad they no longer want to lay claim to a couple of the greatest Americans who ever were. For the record, both men were members of the Democratic-Republican Party, which no longer exists. If the dems want to associate their party with a failure like Obama, the guy who lost over 1000 democrats seats nationwide, more power to them. A loser team needs a loser mascot.
