Democrats will attack absolutely anybody that they believe is interfering with the upcoming election. But being the hypocrites that they are, they don’t hold themselves to the same standard. In this regard, they feel that they are above the law.
Even former President Barack Obama has threatened to intervene to stop a particular candidate if they win the nomination. That candidate would be Bernie Sanders.
Obama recently cautioned Democrats not to go too hard to the left in their party because they’re not going to be as attractive to those on the left who are more moderate.
But maybe it wasn’t just helpful advice, after all, maybe it was a threat that Obama would step in if he didn’t like the candidate. Isn’t this interfering in an election, the very same thing they’re accusing President Trump of doing?
According to The Daily Wire,
“Back when Sanders seemed like more of a threat than he does now, Obama said privately that if Bernie were running away with the nomination, Obama would speak up to stop him,” Politico reports.
Sources close to Obama confirmed for Lizza that the former president, who campaigned on a far-left platform but governed further towards the middle (though, still, substantially left of center), doesn’t view Sanders as a Democrat, and that, were Sanders to come close to snagging the all-important Democratic nod, Obama, who views himself as a “guardrail” and conscience for the party, would use his influence to reroute the nomination.
“He hasn’t said that directly to me,” an unidentified advisor told Lizza. “The only reason I’m hesitating at all is because, yeah, if Bernie were running away with it, I think maybe we would all have to say something. But I don’t think that’s likely. It’s not happening.”
Really though, what is Obama going to do if Bernie wins the nomination for the Democrats? There’s nothing he can do.
