Sarah Palin is one of our favorite people to mock. For almost a decade she has been giving us the gift of her stupidity and it’s been amazing. The half-term Alaskan governor frequently gets drunk and treats us to long rambling inebriated word salads on Facebook and in the media. She is, really, just such a blast to make fun of and apparently President Obama agrees with us.
On Thursday night, Obama gave a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute and openly mocked Palin for one of her favorite lines:
I said we could create opportunity not just for those at the very top, but for everybody who’s willing to work hard, so they could afford healthcare and college and retirement, and give their kids a better life. What Sarah Palin called that ‘hopey changey stuff.’
When President Obama was running for office in 2007, he promised the country that he was going to change it for the better while John McCain and Palin told their supporters that they were going to continue destroying America with their horrible Republican policies. Thankfully, the electorate decided to give change a chance and nearly eight years after he first sat behind the desk in the Oval Office our country is back on track.
Obama’s policies have produced record stock market gains, low unemployment, given millions of people healthcare. The president saved the automotive industry, reformed Wall Street, entered into historic global climate change agreements, cut the deficit by two-thirds. Obama put the first Hispanic woman on the Supreme Court, nominated another woman to the court, and nominated the first Muslim federal judge. Thanks to him, our country is a much better pace and our government is finally diversifying.
But it doesn’t matter how many successes the president has had during his tenure in office, right-wingers like Palin are still calling him a failure and they deserve to be heavily mocked for that nonsense. It’s awesome that Obama has finally reached a point in his presidency where he is doing that mocking for us and it makes us realize how much we are going to miss him.
