You probably won’t be surprised to know that former President Obama remains as self-unaware as ever:
“Next week, President Obama will offer new thoughts on this moment and what it requires from the American people. He will expand upon several of the themes from his summer address, including that America is at its best when our democracy is inclusive and our citizens are engaged,” Katie Hill, the communications director for Obama, said in a statement.
“He will echo his call to reject the rising strain of authoritarian politics and policies,” she continued. “And he will preview arguments he’ll make this fall, specifically that Americans must not fall victim to our own apathy by refusing to do the most fundamental thing demanded of us as citizens: vote.”
Hilarious stuff coming from the Godfather of the Obamacare mandate who loved his unilateral “pen and phone” as well as EPA regulations aplenty.
Bonus laugh: Here’s what Obama’s getting an award for:
Obama will receive the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s Paul H. Douglas Award for Ethics in Government during a ceremony on Sept. 7, the school and Obama’s office announced Thursday.
Will former IRS conservative hunter Lois Lerner and the first AG ever found in contempt of Congress Eric Holder be there to accept it with him?
