Or it’s possible Obama knows firsthand that the majority of the country is moderate? A majority of the Democratic party even. So he thinks that getting the votes of a) moderate Democrats, b) independents, and c) Trump voters who voted for him in 2012 (about 13% of Trump voters) will take a more moderate candidate than… Read more
omg, like, THANKS OBAMA!!! amirite? also, shouldn’t this this be crossposted at Breitbart / Stormfront?
People don’t understand what the ACA cost Obama and the Democrats. They had 59 seats (with the Independents) in the Senate and a 79 seat majority in the house.

My guess is that a Sarah Dessen book (or something similar) had been chosen before, prompting this student to join the committee to ensure that something like this didn’t happen again. Same for your AP Lit teacher—I bet someone (or possibly multiple people) wanted to do their paper on Harry Potter or some other… Read more
Yeah, idk, I’m kind of annoyed at everyone in this situation. Like, on the one hand, if you’re a public figure, you’ve got to deal with some criticism. On the other hand, I’m also puzzled as to why that college student was so afraid that one of Sarah Dessen’s books would get picked? Like, I feel like most people would… Read more
