Holding back to Win the Race

Timothy Birdnow

Jeff Rendall takes on Obama's plea for moderation to his own party at Conservative HQ.

Jeff's take on this is:

If Sanders or Warren ever managed to win the presidency and push through their healthcare hallucinations, it would send Obamacare down to the depths of policy hades forever. Assuming his fans fondly remember Obama for enacting the first big government takeover of the health industry, Sanders-care or Warren-care ("Pocahontas”-care?) would be on the lips of everyone from that point on. Who would bother crediting (blaming?) Obama for the ensuing mess when the first black president was so yesterday in Americans’ remembrances?

I don't necessarily disagree, but I don't agree either. Is it just hubris, just Obama's desire to maintain glory?

That element is there, but if it were the sole determinant Obama would have been much more vocal since leaving office. I am fairly sure Obama has a strategic reason for this.

I left the following comment:

Obama's policies are now the status quo and what Trump is doing is the radical realigning. Obama understands that HE'S now the "conservative" side of this equation. He is in a pickle, because he supports radical change but not the kind Mr. Trump is promoting. So he has to caution patience, to get the Democrats to consolidate the gains he made as opposed to biting off more than is chewable.

Revolution is easy; holding on is the hard part. Obama is learning that now. Fortunately for us the Democrats aren't.

Keep in mind that it has been 11 years since the Anointed One was elected. 21 year olds were only ten when he came to power. 30 year olds were just 19, and so the norm is Obamunism, or close to it. BHO understand that.

Trump is a radical departure, an attempt to realign the world order. Bush I, Clinton, Bush II, and Obama all followed a policy of Deep State control, internationalism, environmentalism, extreme government regulations and taxation of businesses, etc. Trump is moving us away from this. HE is the radical.

In short, Mr. Obama has always been a suit-and-tie radical. He understand the need to not overplay his hand.

As Saul Alinsky said, a tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Obama knows the ropes; he knows the see-saw Fabian tactic of presenting a thesis, facing an antithesis, then coming to a synthesis. Obamacare was precisely that; there was a demand by his party for socialized medicine, and the Republicans (and the public) pushed back. Obama then offered his "compromise" which was government taking over but not actually owning it. The plan was for this to fail and then pushing further. But it first has to fail. Obama knew that, and he realizes now is the time to appeal to the moderate middle as the voice of small c conservative policy. Attack on other fronts. Let the radical groups push on the social front. Weather the tide of Trumpist populism and then come back for more. That is how the Left has won, both here and abroad.

The radicals are a useful tool and have their place in the drive for the socialist utopia, but they need to be reined in for the moment. Obama understands this.

In a race the frontrunner is frequently not the winner. The BHO knows this.

This medication is used to help relieve severe ongoing pain (such as due to cancer). Oxycodone belongs to a class of drugs known as opioid (narcotic) analgesics. It works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain.

The higher strengths of this drug (more than 40 milligrams per tablet) should be used only if you have been regularly taking moderate to large amounts of opioid pain medication. These strengths may cause overdose (even death) if taken by a person who has not been regularly taking opioids.

Do not use the extended-release form of oxycodone to relieve pain that is mild or that will go away in a few days. This medication is not for occasional ("as needed”) use.
