A normal person would look back on 8 years of accomplishing nothing and find at least a few regrets, but not Barack Obama. The former lazy president says he only has one regret about his presidency and it’s pretty insane, even for him. He basically said that he regrets that people were paying too much attention to him while he was in the White House. That of course is a lie because he’s a giant egomaniac who constantly wants to be at the center of attention.
Politico ran a fluff piece on Obama because every story can’t be about how Trump is the second coming of Hitler. Get ready for one of the funniest things you’ll read all summer:
Barack Obama’s message to Democrats: Stop dreaming of him.
He almost accepted some of the blame for the state of the party, though he framed it less as the DNC atrophying from years of benign neglect while he was in the White House and being saddled with his reelection campaign debt and more as people making the mistake of falling too much in love with him.
“I’ll be honest with you, if I have a regret during my presidency, it is that people were so focused on me and the battles we were having, particularly after we lost the House, that folks stopped paying attention up and down the ballot,” Obama said.
That is hilarious. Obama almost took the blame for something and then scolded people for loving him too much? How is he a real person? Then he actually qualified it with an “if” meaning he may not actually regret this at all. It’s possible he is totally content with the kick-ass job he thinks he did as president.
Just for fun, let’s pretend that he actually considers this his one and only regret. As I already pointed out, that’s a lie because “President Selfie” is the vainest most attention-seeking occupant the White House has ever had. It’s also bullshit on another level because Obama has previously said his one regret was not passing any unconstitutional gun control laws while he was in charge.
In fact, Obama told the BBC that he regrets not passing any gun control laws as well as regretting not doing anything to improve race relations in the country. Then there was that time he said he regretted what went down in Libya, though as usual didn’t take any of the responsibility. He has also said he regrets the political divide in the country. Plus, and this is no bullshit, he once said he regrets running for president.
For a guy with maybe one regret, he sure has a lot of regrets, doesn’t he?
The funniest thing is, he doesn’t regret any of the terrible stuff he did. He doesn’t regret ObamaCare, which sent premiums through the roof while reducing coverage for working Americans. He doesn’t regret badmouthing the US to every foreign country he visited. He doesn’t regret wasting taxpayer money on 15 vacations every year as the world was burning and the country coming apart at the seams. He doesn’t regret those mom jeans.
No, Obama’s biggest regret is that he’s so fabulous and awesome that people can’t help but to pay attention to him. That’s like the regret a drag queen on meth would have.
