OBAMA: I could have won again

buzzz worthy. . .

Could Pres. Obama have secured a third victory if he was allowed to run again?

According to a Washington Post reporter on assignment in Hawaii where the first family spends their Winter vacation, when POTUS was leaving a game of golf, as the motorcade traveled along S. Kalaheo Ave., two women standing along the road hoisted a large cardboard sign above their heads. Scribbled with marker, the sign read: "4 more Obama!"

Like these citizens, POTUS is confident that he would have won again, which he has stated publicly.

“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.” 

His confidence is based on his ability to go directly to people and bring them together as a former community organizer, an effort that helped him develop coalitions of support around the nation that he said the Clinton campaign failed to tap into. This not so subtle indictment of Hillary Clinton's campaign strategy comes after Obama campaigned for Mrs. Clinton, the woman he had hope would continue his legacy.   Obama said the Democratic party needed to improve their ground game in the last election, (NOTE: Despite losing to Donald Trump based on the electoral college vote tally, Clinton won the popular vote by over 2 million.)

In an interview on David Axelrod's "The Axe Files," Obama said, “See, I think the issue was less that Democrats have somehow abandoned the white working class, I think that's nonsense,” Obama said. “Look, the Affordable Care Act benefits a huge number of Trump voters. There are a lot of folks in places like West Virginia or Kentucky who didn't vote for Hillary, didn't vote for me, but are being helped by this . . . The problem is, is that we're not there on the ground communicating not only the dry policy aspects of this, but that we care about these communities, that we're bleeding for these communities.”

Trump disagreed on Twitter, saying "No way."
