Obama Says He Would Have Beaten Trump If He’d Been Able To Run Again



From Yahoo: President Obama thinks he could have beaten Donald Trump if he’d run again in 2016. In an interview with his longtime friend and advisor, David Axelrod, the outgoing POTUS said he remains convinced that a majority of Americans share his progressive vision for the country.

“I am confident in this vision because I’m confident that if I, if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it,” he said in the interview, which was released Monday.

Later Monday, Trump responded on Twitter. “President Obama said that he thinks he would have won against me,” he wrote. “He should say that but I say NO WAY! – jobs leaving, ISIS, OCare, etc.”

During the interview, Obama also praised Hillary Clinton and reiterated his belief that she was treated unfairly during her campaign. But he hinted at what could have been one of her campaign’s fatal mistakes. Specifically, he said Clinton focused on her opponent’s shocking statements, treatment of women and stance on immigration rather than on the improving economy.

“If you think you’re winning, then you have a tendency, just like in sports, maybe to play it safer,” Obama said. “And the economy has been improving. There is a sense, obviously, that some communities have been left behind from the recovery and people feeling anxious about that. But if she was looking at the campaign and saying ‘OK, I’m winning right now,’ and her economic agenda was in fact very progressive. But not well understood.”

“But understandably, I think she looked and said well, given my opponent and the things he’s saying and what he’s doing, we should focus on that.”

  1. You have to remember, Obama won because the GOP put up the weakest candidates imaginable.


  2. How in the hell was the witch treated unfairly ? By the m.s.m. , don’t think so!

    To the ” Donald ” , stay above the fray…you don’t need to respond to these jerkoffs every time they make an outlandish statement , ” Tri-angulate “

  3. So Obama has the microphone, and the MSM will spread it around, and the Left wing loonies will ruminate it.
    The only part of Obama’s statement that is getting play is the idea that he is telling us there is a plot an coup in the works.
    Conjecturing that he would have won is the “Big If” that is not worthy of bandwidth.

    Obama is Satan

  4. Obama went on my taxpayer dime to thump for Hillary in Florida and Ohio. Trump won those states. I think the voters repudiated not only HRC, but Obama, as well. So much for the “I would have won a 3rd term.” The man is delusional, as well as evil incarnate. Worst. President. Ever.

  5. Berry, Berry, Berry….you are so in need of therapy! Your delusions of grandeur have continued to grow and defy the logic of any rational thinker. Sigh…..its time now for you to leave the White House and get a job. But remember, don’t come back, ok? The locks will have been changed and all the people on the dole will no longer be there. Now run along Berry and don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out! Good grief.

  6. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ask Obama a really pertinent question, and all he can do is stutter!
    You know, I used to be against term limits, even for the Presidency, but I cannot endure another four years of this alleged human! 23 days to go, and I really have my doubts!

  9. Publically BHO says the blacks got screwed by the whites and are due retribution. The poor got screwed by the rich and needs the wealth distributed.
    He attends a church that prays the chickens will come home to roost.
    He studies the words of domestic terrorists an communists.
    He shoulda woulda coulda won if there were third terms and if he had campaigned, and if you are black or feel financially disadvantaged then connect the dots for your messiah.
    There are lots of guns and angry hoodies in DC planning to attend the inauguration.


  10. Gateway Pundit has a link to a Lib Democrat writing in Politico that the Dems have got to face that they lost because of Obama and his policies are not popular and Hillary is a terrible candidate.

    If the Lib/Progs think Trump is so bad, WHY did he win? Hillary is worse! Many voters said they didn’t like either candidate, but voted for Trump because they knew Hillary was worse. Even Dems.
    Why is trump going to do away with most, maybe all of Obama’s policies, and DEMOCRATs voted for him in droves? Obama was a bad president and just keeps getting worse. He is killing the Democrat Party with the DemonRat Leadership backing his terrible anti-American policies.

    We should keep picking on him, petulant little spoiled boy, because he just keeps doubling down on STUPID stuff most Americans are sick of and the good ones despise.

    Never interfere with your Enemy when he is being stupid! (to paraphrase Sun Tzu)
    The Lib Progs and the Bernie Socialists will probably hang on to the control of The Jackass Party to 2020, but after they lose big in Congress & the Senate in 2018, I think the Dems at the State Party level will start culling the Dinos (The DemonRats & Commies), but won’t have much effect in the 2020 Presidential Race. But some young person that is an “Old Line Democrat” may come out of right field like Trump and run away with the nomination. The Party will probably use their Special Delegates to put another old Party loser in again, but another loss like this one will be the end of the DemonRat control, I hope.
    We need an American “Democrat Party” for balance, and to keep the RINOs and the CFR Globalists from taking over the Republican Party.

  12. Who would have won, Rocky Marciano in his prime or Muhammad Ali in his time? Hypothetical questions will be asked…

    but never answered.

    In Obama’s dream world, he might have won. But my opinion is that he would not. Obama’s failure is too profound.

    • OMG Helene—and I think he could be an “intractable” rash b/c he’s going to stay in the D.C. area “for his children’s HS education to finish.” I keep thinking that we are dragging ourselves over the “finish line” with the January 20 inauguration day….but knowing Obama….he’s going to hang around in the DC area and we’ll hear from him…nagging….harassing… .pontificating…lecturing, finger-wagging….affecting his Southern Drawl…or his Washingtonian accent…or his Harvard/Hawaiian/Chicagoan accent…as needed per his audience….for MANY YEARS….OMG! Someone give me an AlkaZeltzer…. AND another 4 years or so of stamina…..

  16. It’s disturbing that obummer is going to remain in DC. His excuse is they’re staying so the children can finish school there. I’ve read the real reason is he is putting together a coalition to fight Trump and his administration every step of the way.

    • I have also read where he wants to form a shadow government and challenge Trump on each and every thing he disagrees with.
      I would suspect Soros is financing all of this with payment of the homes he has obtain.
      If the country is turning around and things are on the upswing, he may be biting off more than we can chew. One can hope.
      He has proven he is a failure as a leader, what makes him think he could do this? He hates doing business in the White House, he just wants all the perks.
