Outgoing US President Barack Obama has claimed he would have won the elections if he was able to contend again.

“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,” Obama said in an interview posted on the podcast “The Axe Files” on Monday, produced by CNN and the University of Chicago.

“I know that in conversations that I’ve had with people around the country, even some people who disagreed with me, they would say the vision, the direction that you point towards is the right one,” he added.

“Losing’s never fun,” Obama said, speaking philosophically.

“I’m proud that I have tried to conduct myself in office to do what I think is right rather than what is popular, I always tell people don’t underestimate the public humiliation of losing in politics,” he added.

“It’s unlike what most people experience as adults, this sense of rejection,” he stated.

That is a very sick and dangerous man. As for who you voted for, the fact that you did provides evidence you are suffering from delusions.

Almost anyone but Clinton would have won.

Trump defeated how many Republican candidates to be the nominee? I think people like you underestimate the extent of the people’s frustration with the establishment.

Without having rigged the DNC, Killary wouldn’t have ran for POTUS. DEMs feel exactly the same about the establishment. And, BTW, I’m sure that there were huge frauds to rig the election in favour of the old bitch but too many voted against her.

Bernie Sanders would have won for sure.
I’m dubious about Obama. Maybe maybe not.

Of course you’d support the socialist. Socialism has and will never work!! Spending more than you have just creates debt until the nation buckles, happens with every socialist state!

Sanders ain’t a socialist. Just the less evil of those pro-capitalism who were running for POTUS. I’m not at all for socialism. Socialism can be seen as a step forward but will NEVER be enough. Funny fact, US are in ultra-liberalism (which is so very near fascism as the definition of fascism is capitalism pushed to the extreme) and have more debt than ANY other country on Earth. You’ll have to explain me why Sanders considers the example of i.e. Sweden that has one of the healthiest economies you can find… Thus, I actually favour NONE of the political parties… Read more »

He is, he proposed spending multiple trillions over the course of 5 years that he didn’t have, which would’ve plunged the nation into further debt, causing them to eventually buckle, that’s textbook socialism. Sweden isn’t socialist, it’s capitalist with some socialist policies. Scandinavia as a whole tried socialism in the 70s, and their economies were so badly wrecked that they reverted back to capitalism before they collapsed completely. Much of the damage from back then is yet to be fixed. But I’m not surprised that a leftie is ignorant about facts, it’s an unfortunate trend. Socialism entails entertaining fantasies, ones… Read more »

Same goals for Sanders as he patterned highly on Swede model. You may not know the Star Trek universe as it perfectly explains how the world went out of capitalism. Thus, when did it began? Before it, there was already no economy, it didn’t prevented humanity to exist for what? near a hundred thousand years? Was there any political party? Centralized state? Nope. Now, komrads during the Spanish war suppressed money… In one year, the doubled agricultural production and quadrupled the industrial production. What stopped the experience? Right wingers, socialist, fascists and commies teamed together to destroy us… This simply… Read more »

We had never a true capitalisme system in Europe.
May France and England in the 19 century, but it is an old story.

Hopefully, although UK has always been more hardcore capitalist, thus, as soon as the empire was gone, UK began to collapse and soon is likely to not exist anymore. Thus, Maggie and some of her allies have drived the EU too much on crappy privatisation path and well, richs are now richers, poors are poorer and the middle class is getting poor so let’s be clear : ultra liberalism SUCKS! Everything worked much better when states were holding all public services and strategic assets as the state is here to work for the people, not for the bourgeoisie!

This is the definition of fascism by its inventor, Benito Mussolini! Nothing French in it!
X-finger it won’t happen here : Pétain was a catastrophe and not even speaking of his friends Benito and Adolf.
High time we solve the FN problem. Nobody dared to forbid this party, it’s considered impossible but hey, Impossible : not French 😉

Why do you hate the FN? They’re anti-EU, anti-Islam, they’re a bit left like you, I have no idea why you hate them so much, considering that their biggest policies look to solve France’s greatest problems, ones perpetuated by your other political parties.

Capitalism is freedom for richs, all others being slaves… Not better!
Fuck all that we’ve got to get on with!
Now what you see as socialism might be the USSR, well, this wasn’t socialism or communism but the Canada-Dry of it and as all know, Canada-Dry looks like alcohol, tastes like alcohol but isn’t alcohol!
As soon as Stalin came into power, all hope was lost! It’d had been exactly the same if Jesse James had became POTUS! Well, US weren’t far with Killary, hehe!

Now wait the SyriaGate is investigated : it’s gonna fucking butt-hurt! Just think about it : this is how US taxpayers money went to al-Qaeda gangs on the US terror list… Well, we also can call it the AfghanGate, the IraqGate, the LibyaGate, the 911Gate, the WTC-Gate or why not, as it’s very extended, the QaedaGate? We’re far from only, as Kit says, “frustration with the establishment”, this is just a case of high treason and a bipartisan one… Now, let’s see if Trump has the balls to really drain the swamp and BTW, let’s see if he pushes the… Read more »

Well he’d have a better chance than Hillary. It’s not like he had a crooked past like her. This helped Trump, alongside promising to “bring back jobs”, as well as change foreign policy. Something Hillary dared not touch.
