Obama to the Rescue?

The former president is getting nervous about Joe Biden’s prospects for reelection.

If you’re shocked that Barack Obama has reentered the political fray lately, then you’ve forgotten just who he is.

Here’s a refresher: As recounted in a 2008 New Yorker article, Obama’s future political director, Patrick Gaspard, was interviewing for a position on the campaign in 2007 when Obama told him, matter-of-factly: “I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director.”

It’s hard to imagine a more insufferable pol than Barack Obama. Despite believing that Austrian is a language and that “corpsman” is pronounced corpse man, he still thinks he’s the smartest guy in the room.

And if you’re the smartest guy in the room, you’ll be damned if you’re going sit idly by while Joe Biden blows your fourth term in office and further tarnishes your legacy. Instead, you’re going to do whatever it takes to drag his carcass across the finish line on November 5. Indeed, as The New York Times put it recently: “This level of engagement illustrates Mr. Obama’s support for Mr. Biden, but also what one of his senior aides characterized as Mr. Obama’s grave concern that Mr. Biden could lose to former President Donald J. Trump. The aide, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said that Mr. Obama has ‘always’ been worried about a Biden loss. And so, the aide added, he is prepared to ‘eke it out’ alongside his former vice president in an election that could come down to slim margins in a handful of states.”

Things aren’t trending in Biden’s favor, though. The latest Fox News poll has him 17 points underwater in his approval rating, 41-58, and has Donald Trump leading him 50-45 in a two-man race. Further, Trump maintains the same five-point margin in a five-person race that includes Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Jill Stein, and Cornel West. As for the all-important battleground states — Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin — Trump leads Biden in every one of them according to the RealClearPolitics average.

“Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f*ck things up,” Obama is purported to have said of his former running mate. And we can imagine him saying that same thing again these days.

But what the Biden campaign lacks in polling strength it appears to be making up for in cash and organizational infrastructure. According to The Wall Street Journal: “In February, Biden’s campaign apparatus said it brought in more than $53 million, leaving it with more than $155 million on hand at the end of the month. Trump’s operation by comparison reported raising $39.3 million — with $74.4 million in the bank — across his campaign committee, the Republican National Committee, a supportive super PAC and a leadership PAC, which has been drained by shelling out more than $53 million in legal-related expenses since early last year.”

That $53 million in legal fees could’ve gone toward campaign infrastructure and a good get-out-the-vote apparatus. Instead, the Democrats’ abominable lawfare strategy has continually sicced the legal system on Trump in an attempt to either imprison him or bankrupt him or both.

And speaking of infrastructure: “Just six months before the first early votes are cast in the general election between Trump and Biden,” the AP reports, “Trump’s Republican Party has little general election infrastructure to speak of. Officials on the ground in top swing states are not panicking, but the disparity with the Biden campaign is stark. This month alone, Biden opened 100 new offices and added more than 350 new staffers in swing states from Arizona to Georgia to Pennsylvania. … That’s in addition to the Democratic president’s existing battleground-state staff of 100 that was already in place.”

Barack Obama knows all this, which is why he and Epstein Air frequent flyer Bill Clinton checked their considerable egos, buried their past disagreements, and joined Joe Biden at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan on Friday, where they whored themselves out at a star-studded gala that’s already being called the most lucrative fundraiser in American political history. The attendance exceeded 5,000, and the take was reportedly $26 million. Which makes sense. After all, the Democrats are the Party of the Rich.

And get this: Biden called it a “grassroots fundraiser.” That’s right — a grassroots fundraiser whose ticket prices ranged from $225 to $500,000, and whose organizers arranged for famed photographer Annie Leibovitz to take pictures of the attendees with the three presidents for a mere $100,000.

The event didn’t go off without a hitch, though. A handful of pro-Hamas protesters crashed the event, holding up a “War pig” sign and shouting assorted obscenities at Biden. “Shame on you, Joe Biden,” one of the Jew-haters shouted. “Blood on your hands,” yelled others.

While all this was going on, there was a far more important event taking place in nearby Massapequa: the funeral service for a fallen cop named Jonathan Diller, a husband and father who was gunned down in Queens last week during a routine vehicle check. The murderer was a vile recidivist with 21 priors to his name, and he’d have been behind bars were it not for the soft-on-crime policies of New York’s Democrats.

As Miranda Devine writes: “It was Donald Trump who was welcomed with open arms by the family of Detective Jonathan Diller. … It was Trump who said the right things, who had the empathy to know that at a time like this, you show up, you acknowledge the sacrifice and what it means in the wider world.”

And when you have a choice between honoring a fallen cop and grubbing for money at a partisan fundraiser, you honor the fallen cop.
