Obama cautions 2020 hopefuls against going too far left

Former President Obama cautioned the Democratic 2020 primary field from moving too far to the left, saying voters could be turned off by calls for massive societal and government transformations. ’The average American doesn’t think we have to completely tear down the system and remake it’, Obama said at a meeting of fundraisers.

Obama is a weak centrist, this is what I can expect from him.

Surprise: Obama only likes to talk about change, he does not actually endorse it.

2008 Obama should have represented a deceleration of progressivism. progressivism should only ever be a short-term necessity when urgent change is needed, otherwise the left should be focused on *liberalism* and not progressivism. but now the left is one hundred percent change-for-the-sake-of-change progressivism and they have abandoned real liberalism.

Obama was basically a Republican so fuck him maybe? Left populism WILL beat Trump. We're already ran a centrist against him and we all see how that worked. A new poll just came out showing Bernie Sanders, self described Democratic Socialist, destroys Trump in GEORGIA he's so shitty Georgia is considering going socialist 🤣

You wanted to “Fundamentally Transform America”, dude. This is the bed you made. This is the cake you baked. YOU fired the starting gun on this race to the bottom, and Epstein didn’t kill himself.

He is the reason we have Trump now since he failed to champion truly progressive policies that would have benefited the vast majority of the population as Bernie is trying to do now. He also failed to hold the Bush administration responsible for their war crimes and failed to hold the banks and other financial institutions for causing the biggest loss of middle class wealth in this country’s history. The least he could do now is be silent.

He's speaking for the DNC, not the American people. I've talked to people from rural Kentucky to metropolitan California and one thing stuck out as consistent. People know the system is broken and they want it massively changed.

Even Obama cant stand the left now, and they think they have a platform to stand against Trump? Impeachment really is their last chance, and even then they wouldnt win.

We need healthcare, not more billionaires who pay less taxes than the middle class.

Obama was a weak president. Too interested in making bipartisan agreements with the insane Republicans. We need a strong left-leaning president who can rescue the country from the precipice right wing extremism has put it on.

Just like Obama, campaign like a moderate, govern like a communist. A wolf in sheep's clothes. The Fabian Society would be so proud.
