Obama Takes The Gloves Off, Unloads On Republicans Who Made His Presidency Hell


Obama Takes The Gloves Off, Unloads On Republicans Who Made His Presidency Hell

As president Obama approaches returning to life as a normal citizen, his approval rating is the highest it has been in 45 months. Now, some of his most vocal Republican detractors who for years made his presidency a hell, are trying to portray themselves as allies of his administration.

In California, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who once called Obama “one of the most corrupt presidents in modern times”, is sending out mailers featuring an Obama photo, touting his cooperation with the president.


There is a problem with that strategy, though, which is that Obama seems determined to spend the last two weeks of the election laying waste to every Republican who ever crossed him.

With little reason left to hold his tongue on Republican dysfunction, Obama is instead swinging for the party as a whole, almost a decade’s worth of pent-up frustrations emerging for a fiery comeuppance.

During a political swing through California, Obama expanded his ire beyond the GOP presidential nominee in a cutting and specific fashion, savaging his longtime political opponents as craven, hypocritical and ultimately responsible for their own demise.

On Sunday, Obama blasted Issa’s move as “shameless” and “the definition of chutzpah.”

“This is now a guy who, because poll numbers are bad, has sent out brochures with my picture on them touting his cooperation on issues with me.” Now, that is the definition of chutzpah,” the president said.

“His primary contribution to the US Congress has been to obstruct and to waste taxpayer dollars on trumped up investigations that have led nowhere,” Obama said.

“Here’s a guy who called my administration perhaps the most corrupt in history, that, when Trump was suggesting that I wasn’t even born here, said, well, I don’t know, was not sure. We can pull up the quotes.”

And he’s only warming up.

For a president known for complex oratory and rhetoric, the ease of using Heck’s last name seemed too good for Obama to pass up; he deployed some variation of “what the heck?” or “heck no!” at least eight times.

Obama is unloading now on a party he says was Trump long before the real estate mogul descended his escalator as a presidential contender.

And it’s not only the President who has sharpened his arrows in the final stretch of an ugly campaign. The first lady, Michelle Obama, has rebutted and responded to the attacks against her husband more personally this year than she’s ever been willing to previously, unleashing the hurt and anger in a way political spouses are rarely willing to do.
