No, the headline is not a joke. This is what the Narcissist-in-Chief actually said. In an interview on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” Obama said that he was proud of his accomplishments while in office, and though he mentioned ridiculous statements like “saving the American economy,” noticeably absent was his signature unconstitutional legislation, Obamacare.
When asked what he thought his one line would be in history, Obama said he thought he would allow others to answer that question. However, he went on to basically give some ideas from his own head.
“I’m proud of saving the American economy,” he said in response to what he was most proud of. “We still have a long way to go. Essentially what we did was stabilize it, lay a new foundation to move forward. As I said in the State of the Union address, that gives us, now the capacity to tackle what was an overriding theme of my campaign way back in 2008. And that is to restore middle class economics and the capacity for people to get into the middle class and start seeing higher wages and a broader shared prosperity inside the United States.”
He failed to mention how Obamacare is affecting the middle class and the immense tax burden that will fall on the middle class this year and in the coming years. This is in addition to the hundreds of thousands of jobs that will be lost and the billions that will be added to insurance premiums.
