Barack “Baby Black Jesus” Obama got much wrong, and is undoubtedly one of the worst presidents in American history. However he nailed one thing.
Recall that Obama warned, “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f*ck things up.”
Obama made that statement to a fellow Democrat and candidate during the 2020 presidential primary. Obama kicked his VP of 8 years to the curb.
Then, Obama added, “And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden.”
Prior to this Obama practically begged Biden not to run for president.
“You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t,” he reportedly told Biden in 2019.
Why would Obama so vehemently oppose a Biden presidency? Because he worked with the clown for 8 years. How long would you need to work with Biden to know the guy was a Moron First Class.
According to journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, authors of Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency, Obama “worried that his former vice president would embarrass himself on the campaign trail.”
Democrats avoided most of that by sidelining the old befuddled buffoon for most of the campaign.
Recall that Biden was passed over in 2016, when Obama sided with Hillary Clinton over his demented #2.
Allen and Parnes noted, “It had stung Biden badly in 2015 when Obama made clear his preference for Hillary Clinton.” Allen and Parnes wrote. “Adding insult to injury, Obama’s advisers told Biden aides back then that they didn’t think he could beat Clinton. They pressured him to get out of the way.”
Biden obliged. And not because he was a shoe-in in 2020. Far from it.
Obama’s premonitions about Biden stood firm. He wanted Biden nowhere near the White House. Sadly for Obama and other Democrats, the elites ruled them all out.
Obama still passively aggressively undermined Biden. He did this by being conspicuous by his absence.
After winning the South Carolina primary in March 2020, Biden reportedly told aides that Obama hadn’t “lifted a finger” to help him. And though the Obamas were rolling in cash in 2020, neither Obama nor his wife, Michelle, donated a single dollar to Biden. Not during the primary or the general election.
Clearly the Obamas knew the stench that came with the Biden name. And coming from the fairly smelly Obamas, that’s says a lot.
Obama is no sage in picking candidates to back. He picked Hillary Clinton and couldn’t carry her fat ass over the finish line. And Obama has endorsed many losers, including the non-Mexican Beto O’Rourke.
But in the case of Biden, I stand with Obama. Afghanistan offers proof not to “underestimate Joe’s ability to f*ck things up.”
