Obama TRASHES Progressive Democrats Ahead of Midterm Elections

For years now, it has been rather obvious that the Democratic Party is tearing itself apart.

This intra-party civil war has largely been drawn down lines of radicalism, with the far-left progressives consistently using their social media prowess and power over the party’s youth to drag the centrists of the organization ever further toward their bold agenda.

But now, as the all-important midterm elections continue to loom over the horizon, one of the party’s most powerful figures is taking direct aim at the radical left, and it’s not sitting well with many within the Democratic sphere.

Former President Barack Obama took some shots at his fellow Democrats, calling them ‘buzzkills’ and says their rhetoric forces people to ‘walk on eggshells.’

Obama, speaking to four of his former employees on the Pod Save America podcast, said that some people within his party need to cool down the temperature and understand that everyone makes mistakes.

He said: ‘Sometimes Democrats are [buzzkills]. Sometimes people just want to not feel as if they are walking on eggshells, and they want some acknowledgment that life is messy and that all of us, at any given moment, can say things the wrong way, make mistakes.’

And then…

Obama added that his fellow Dems should learn from what he felt were his mistakes as president, saying: ‘I used to get into trouble whenever, as you guys know well, whenever I got a little too professorial and, you know, started … when I was behind the podium as opposed to when I was in a crowd, there were times where I’d get, you know, sound like I was giving a bunch of policy gobbledygook.’

He noted: ‘That’s not how people think about these issues. They think about them in terms of the life I’m leading day to day. How does politics, how is it even relevant to the things that I care the most deeply about?’

This new angst is not a good sign for the Democrats heading into the final stretch of this already chaotic midterm cycle, and without unity in the party, they’ll have no shot at maintaining their hold on both, (or either), chamber of Congress.
