First of all, this is rather a hoot considering how far Obama went Left, and tried to take Democrats with him. But, hey, perhaps he learned something from watching Democrats lose well over a 1,000 federal, state, county, and local seats during his presidency, much like he learned that it’s easy to make Pronouncements on the campaign trail about the War on Terror and very different when in office
Former President Barack Obama on Friday warned the Democratic field of White House hopefuls not to veer too far to the left, a move he said would alienate many who would otherwise be open to voting for the party’s nominee next year.
Though Obama did not mention anyone by name, the message delivered before a room of Democratic donors in Washington was a clear word of caution about the candidacies of Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. The two have called for massive structural changes — and in Sanders’ case “revolution” — that would dramatically alter the role of government in people’s lives.
The centrist wing of the party has warned for months that a far-left nominee could alienate moderate Republicans and independent voters needed to oust President Donald Trump.
“The average American doesn’t think we have to completely tear down the system and remake it. And I think it’s important for us not to lose sight of that,” Obama said. “There are a lot of persuadable voters and there are a lot of Democrats out there who just want to see things make sense. They just don’t want to see crazy stuff. They want to see things a little more fair, they want to see things a little more just. And how we approach that I think will be important.”
How big is the centrist wing of the Democratic Party? No one really knows, since we mostly only hear from the extremists, and it seems that most who are elected are rather out there. Obama does have a point, but, A) it’s too late, and B) he’s surely telling them to simply lie. Candidates certainly have to appeal to the base to get the nomination in the primaries, and pivot during the general, but, what does one do when the campaign is so extreme during the primaries? Any pivot will be seen as disingenuous. It was one of the appeals of Trump. You saw who he was and that he meant what he said. He didn’t have to pivot, much like Reagan didn’t pivot (no, I’m not saying Trump is Reagan, but, Trump has done some excellent Conservative things, he talks about freedom, and he does fight back).
Still and all, it’s too late, they’ve all been exposed as being too far left. And you know Trump will not hold back on pointing this out.
