OK now we have President Obama placing the "blame" (i.e. "reason") for Trump's rise in popularity along with some other "Conservative" organizations on a former Republican candidate for VP.

Yes folks, Obama says none other than Sarah Palin is the culprit !!!

Obama is a heavy Clinton supporter and is obviously out of gas when it comes to original thinking.


Obama sees origins of Trump's rise in Sarah Palin


The path that brought the Republican Party to nominating Donald Trump as its candidate for the White House began in 2008, President Barack Obama said in an interview published Monday, when Sarah Palin joined John McCain’s GOP ticket.

“I see a straight line from the announcement of Sarah Palin as the vice-presidential nominee to what we see today in Donald Trump, the emergence of the Freedom Caucus, the tea party, and the shift in the center of gravity for the Republican Party,” the president told New York Magazine. “Whether that changes, I think, will depend in part on the outcome of this election, but it’s also going to depend on the degree of self-reflection inside the Republican Party. There have been at least a couple of other times that I’ve said confidently that the fever is going to have to break, but it just seems to get worse.”

Speaking of Self Reflection , Barry tried it Once , and what he saw within himself Scared the Holy Crap out of him . The Leader of the Free World was a Slave unto his Own Beliefs .

There is a common pattern here and it's that anytime a prominent Republican begins to attract large swaths of the country, Democrats and the media demonize them with the exact same talking points and narratives. It's literally the same, every time.

I will let you all in on a secret. I know who is primarily to blame for the rise of Donald Trump.

Its Barack Obama and other progressives.

Normal people are constantly called racist, misogynists, and other "ists"; they are told they are reliant of the government for their success; they are constantly reminded of how bad the United States is (Imperialism and slavery etc.); they are tired of working harder and getting less and less; they are tired of politicians lying to them with fantastic rhetoric and then going to Washington and only working for themselves and their wealthy doners; they are tired of borders laws not mattering; they are tired of the globalist agenda.

And so they voted for a loud mouth that seemed to be the opposite of the politically correct elite that holds these people in so much contempt.

And so what was the progressives response? Did they say "We understand that many people being angry, and we will work with Trump supporters" No. They called them racist, they called Trump worse than Hitler, their media did everything they could to make Trump look as evil as possible, and they ignored everyone of the criticisms that this group of people had, instead opting to attack these people.

Here is another secret. If Trump loses, these people are going to get angrier and angrier. The Washington elite has set these people up as morally repugnant people that must be stopped, and they are to blame for the worlds ills. They are the patriarchy, and must be destroyed.

And so, big surprise, these people are voting for people that they see as fighting for them. And the more they are demonized, the more extreme these leaders will be.

Obama and his ilk created the environment for someone like Trump to fill.

Talk about moronic.

Of ALL the asinine things the potus has said. THIS ranks right up there at the top.

The REASON for Trumps' rise.

Is because A LOT of people didn't like the Hope and change they have gotten for the last eight years.

Gross incompetence.

Gross ineptitude.

Gross Corruption.

And Sarah Palin is about close to Trump ideologically as the pope is to an atheist.

Agree he is the apex of the reason. The main things he ran on, getting us out of these wars never materialized. Still there. Totally screwed up healthcare with no plan to fix it. Then a big bag of lies like lowered costs. Nope. They skyrocketed up, about to go up again. Then saying he was unaware of Hillary's email yet traffic to her under an alias.

He is the main reason. He failed the American people and continues to lie just like her. People are frustrated and angry.

The government has become a racket. It is the problem, but tries to sell itself as the solution. No one person is responsible for the rise of Trump, but the lack of leadership, transparency, accountability, and principle within the government is.

And who gets to define what is racist and misogynistic? You? Hillary? Academia or the media?

Incompetent politicians like bush and obama are the reason for the rise of a non politician.

Trumps challenger is married to one of those types.

FYI.

He's not blaming it on her because that's stupid. Instead he sees the fall of the Repubicans back when he was running in 08 and for him Palin was the start of the end. But I disagree, the end for the Republcians began long ago when they began the Southern Strategy.

What were the republicans before 2008? Like really, except for of course ron paul what did they stand for?

All I remembered about pre-2008 republicans is they loved government growth and war. and before that the moral majority of the 80's with Reagan.

. 2008-2016 the party voters were for much smaller government and lower taxes, hence origins of the name tea party, over time some fundies hijacked it with some lame issues like fighting gay marriage.

The republican party is less fundamentalist now than in a long time thanks to trump. Fighting gay marriage has died off. Because of trump the party has turned against globalism, perhaps that is what he is referring too.
And I thought buying local was a good thing.

The Obama Legacy: Over 1,000 Democratic Seats Lost to Republicans


Since Obama took office Democrats have lost:
** 14 Senate seats
** 69 House seats
** 12 governorships

That's the thing with Democrats. They don't get that nobody has all the power. Yeah, you got the president you wanted but can't control the house or the senate. They get motivated to vote for one office then float away.

" the end for the Republcans began long ago when they began the Southern Strategy. "

Now in the Year 2016 , the Salvation of the Republican Party will come from a Political Outsider that Manages to Speak for , and Represent the American Peoples Deepest Feelings towards Government Rule . Truth , Justice , and the American Way are Ingrained in All of Us since Birth .The Current Federal Government has Lost that Ideology , and it is up to the People to Remind them that America Only Exists as long as those Principles remain Intact . Today they are in Danger of becoming Extinct because of the Failed Liberal Experiment that has Hijacked the Democratic Party . God Help US All ..........

FYI Obama would be saying the same exact thing had Cruz gotten the nomination.

Who the RIGHT WING wanted.

The ballot come November should be changed to Clinton/Cain/Obama since all three are running and campaigning.

Did you read Obama's speech? He's 100% right. The moment that began with the Tea Party and resulted in politicians like Sarah Palin and the rest of the TP are what caused the big division in the Republican lines. The party was absolutely shattered with 16 candidates in the primary, some TP, some fiscal, some social, and some others. That's the type of situation that can allow one person with even just 15 or 20% of the vote to take it all, and that's precisely what happened.

Historically Trump is a liberal, and stands for nothing the people he's representing stand for. He's for high taxes, removing the constitution, stripping gun rights, and large social programs.... that's not what he's running on right now, but that's what he's believed for the past 40 years.

Whether Trump wins or not the Republican party is basically fractured.
