Political pollster and analyst Pat Caddell told Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Monday that, concerning the Obamas leaving the White House, “We are watching this ending here. It’s not quite as bad as the Clintons … but the lack of grace, that’s what’s missing here.”
Caddell’s remarks came after hearing Michelle Obama’s now infamous comments to Oprah Winfrey:
The First Lady was asked by Oprah Winfrey whether she thinks that her husband’s administration had achieved his promise of hope for America.
“Yes. I do,” she said. “Because we feel the difference now. See, now, we are feeling what not having hope feels like. You know. Hope is necessary. It’s a necessary concept and Barack didn’t just talk about hope because he thought it was just a nice slogan to get votes. He and I and so many believe, what else do you have when you do not have hope?”
Caddell continued, “The Bush people, they had a certain conduct. … George W. Bush kept his mouth shut about Obama forever. What’s Obama doing saying, ‘I’m going to be back here right after vacation. … I need to be in Washington. I need to comment’? Where’s the part where you gracefully leave the stage?”
Additionally, pointing out that, post-election, no one in major media was fired or demoted for getting the election so wrong. “None of them have been fired. Are you kidding?” he said.
“The pollsters who are bad,” he continued, “what are they doing? They’re back with new polls this week.”
Said Caddell, “The media has forgotten that the election even happened. They are giving no ground on anything.”
“It is clear to me now,” added Caddell, “that this war … and it’s going to be a war. President Trump is going to find himself in a constant war with the mainstream media over the issue of who rules America.”
Asked Caddell, rhetorically, “Do the American people have a right to the sovereignty of their own country, or does the political class have a God-given, inherent right to reign over the rest of us, I suppose?”
