THAT’S THE FOCUS OF TONIGHT’S ANGLE, PART TWO. IT SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY WHEN THE OBAMA GLOW APPEARED WOULD LAST FOREVER.>>♪♪ I ♪ ♪ AM SO IN LOVE WITH YOU ♪♪>>Laura: I LOVE HOW HE MILKS THE APPLAUSE AND LOOKS AROUND. HE AND MICHELLE BECAME GLOBAL SUPERSTARS, INSPIRED MILLIONS OF AMERICANS AND OF COURSE THE OTHER GLOBAL SUPERSTARS.>>I WAS AT THE U.N. AND I HEARD OUR PRESIDENT SAY CLIMATE CHANGE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE FACING NOT ONLY THIS GENERATION BUT TO FUTURE GENERATIONS.>>IT MADE ME FEEL HOPEFUL AND PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN. ♪♪ BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA ♪♪>>Laura: LAST NIGHT THE 2020 CANDIDATES WERE SINGING A DIFFERENT TUNE. WITH OUR SIGHTS TRAINED ON JOE BIDEN, THEY DECIDED TO PICK UP KEY ASPECTS OF THE OBAMA-BIDEN LEGACY.>>THIS MYTHOLOGY THAT ALL THESE FOLKS ARE IN LOVE WITH THE INSURANCE.>>I’M GOING TO GO BACK TO PRESIDENT BIDEN BECAUSE YOUR PLAN DOES NOT COVER EVERYONE IN AMERICA.>>EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE, IT’S A HUMAN RIGHT.>>MY RESPONSE IS OBAMACARE IS WORKING.>>I ASKED THE VICE PRESIDENT DID HE USE HIS POWER TO STOP THOSE DEPORTATIONS.>>OPEN BORDERS AS A RIGHT WING TALKING POINT AND I’M FRANKLY DISAPPOINTED THAT SOME FOLKS INCLUDING SOME FOLKS ON THIS STAGE HAVE TAKEN THE BAIT.>>WE SAT TOGETHER IN MANY MEETINGS, I NEVER HEARD HIM TALK ABOUT ANY OF THIS WHEN HE WAS SECRETARY.>>Laura: THE CANDIDATES TRY TO BACK OFF A LITTLE OF THAT CRITICISM BUT THE MARKER HAD ALREADY BEEN LAID DOWN.>>I MISS OBAMA. I MISS HER HUSBAND TOO. [LAUGHTER] HE IS OUR STATESMAN AND ANYBODY WHO WAS AN EXECUTIVE, HE ISN’T PERFECT. I HOPE HE’S SITTING HERE HE WOULD TELL YOU I MADE SOME MISTAKES. WE ARE HAVING AN HONEST CONVERSATION ABOUT AN ADMINISTRATION THAT WAS INCREDIBLE.>>Laura: NICE TRY, BAD JOKE. YOU CAN’T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS. EVEN THOUGH ELIZABETH WARREN THEN BERNIE SANDERS WEREN’T AS EXPLICIT DURING THAT FIRST DEBATE, THEY FEEL THE SAME WAY. AS TALENTED A POLITICIAN AS HE WAS, AS ATTRACTIVE A CANDIDATE AS HE WAS, BARACK OBAMA DIDN’T DELIVER IN CRITICAL AREAS FOR THE PROGRESSIVES. REMEMBER WHEN HE SAID THIS ABOUT NAFTA?>>DO YOU SCRAP NAFTA FIX-IT?>>I WOULD IMMEDIATELY CALL THE PRESIDENT OF MEXICO AND THE PRESIDENT OF CANADA TO TRY TO AMEND NAFTA.>>IT IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE THAT NAFTA WAS A MISTAKE.>>Laura: HE NEVER DID ANYTHING ABOUT IT BUT TRUMP DID. AND WHAT ABOUT THIS GOLDEN OLDI OLDIE?>>NEVER AGAIN WILL THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER BE HELD HOSTAGE BY A BANK THAT IS TOO BIG TO FAIL.>>Laura: AS NOTED IN BLOOMBERG “BUSINESSWEEK,” TWO YEARS AFTER PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA VOWED TO ELIMINATE THE DANGER OF FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS THAT ARE TOO BIG TO FAIL, AND THE NATION’S LARGEST BANKS ARE BIGGER THAN THEY WERE BEFORE THE FINANCIAL MELTDOWN. THANK GOD FOR THOSE BAILOUTS. THEN THERE WAS THIS CLASSIC.>>IF YOU LIKE YOUR DOCTOR, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO KEEP YOUR DOCTOR, PERIOD. IF YOU LIKE YOUR HEALTH CARE PLAN, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO KEEP YOUR HEALTH CARE PLAN, PERIOD. NO ONE WILL TAKE IT AWAY, NO MATTER WHAT.>>Laura: WE ALL SAW WHAT HAPPENED AND WE ALL FELT IT. MORE DOCTORS RETIRED, HIGHER OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS, HIGHER DEDUCTIBLES AND MANY AMERICANS RECEIVED POLICY CANCELLATION NOTICES. THEN THERE WAS A TIME OBAMA PROMISED AMERICA SHOVEL-READY JOBS LOBBYING FOR THAT $830 BILLION STIMULUS BILL AND A FEW YEARS LATER, HE SAID THIS.>>SHOVEL READY WAS NOT AS SHOVEL READY AS WE EXPECTED.>>Laura: I LOVE HOW THEY ARE LAUGHING, WHAT’S A FEW BILLION DOLLARS AMONG FRIENDS? BIG DEAL. FROM THE OUTSET, PRESIDENT OBAMA PROMISED HOPE AND CHANGE AND DEMOCRATS WERE MEMBERS SUMMARIZED MS SUMMARIZED ME SUMMARIZED MI SUMMARIZED ME SUMMARIZED M. FOR ALL THE NOBEL PRIZE IN APPEARANCE ON ELLEN, WHAT HE DELIVERED WAS PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP. THE LIBERAL’S WORST NIGHTMARE. EVER SINCE, THE PARTY HAS BEEN RISING AND VENTING, BUOYED BY THE 2018 MIDTERMS BUT STILL VEXED BY THE MAN WHO ROBERT MUELLER COULDN’T TAKE DOWN. NOW THEY ARE FINGER-POINTING AND ITS UGLY. BARACK OBAMA SHOULDN’T BE SURPRISED AT THE PARTY HAS MOVED TO THE EXTREMES ON ISSUES LIKE THE GREEN NEW DEAL AND REPARATIONS — HE TALKED A GOOD GAME BUT REMEMBER WHEN THIS WENT DOWN? OR HOW ABOUT THIS? WHEN ACTIVISTS BLAMED POLICE AND RACISM AND IS TRAGIC DEATHS, THE WHITE HOUSE FANNED THE VICTIMHOOD NARRATIVES.>>A DEEP DISTRUST EXISTS BETWEEN LAW ENFORCEMENT AND COMMUNITIES OF COLOR. SOME OF THIS IS THE RESULT OF THE LEGACY OF RACIAL DISCRIMINATION IN THIS COUNTRY.>>Laura: SPEAKING OF TROUBLING, THERE WAS THIS PUNISHING LINE FROM OBAMA URGING HISPANICS TO VOTE IN 2012.>>IF LATINOS SIT OUT THE ELECTION INSTEAD OF SAYING WE ARE GOING TO PUNISH OUR ENEMIES, THEN IT’S GOING TO BE HARDER.>>Laura: THAT REMINDS ME OF THIS.>>YOU SEE ANYBODY IN A DEPARTMENT STORE, AT A GASOLINE STATION, YOU GET OUT AND YOU TELL THEM THEY ARE NOT WELCOME.>>Laura: OBAMA SHOULDN’T BE SURPRISED, NO ONE SHOULD BE SURPRISED THAT THE LEFT IS REALLY ANGRY AND WHIPPED UP. OBAMA HIMSELF PLANTED THE SEEDS OF THEIR DISCONTENT. BY THE TIME HE LEFT OFFICE, THIS WAS A CNN HEADLINE. TAKE IT IN. DEMOCRATS SHOULD NOT BE SURPRISED THAT OBAMA HIMSELF ISN’T LIBERAL ENOUGH ANYMORE FOR TODAY’S DEMOCRATIC PARTY. PRESIDENT OBAMA APPEARED TO BE A DREAM CANDIDATE BUT MANY FEEL ON
