Quote of the Day: ‘The fate of the republic — of the world — rests on your shoulders’

Quote of the Day: ‘The fate of the republic — of the world — rests on your shoulders’

That’s pretty strong language, but ironic, too when you consider the source — i.e., the man who was going to fundamentally change the United States of America (and might have succeeded had he not proved to be such a bungler and a neophyte).

Now that his time in office is nearly up, his chief interest is preserving his “legacy,” whatever he imagines that to be, by passing the torch on to his onetime secretary of state (who is currently under investigation by the FBI for possible crimes and misdemeanors).

Obama was in North Carolina yesterday, where he demonstrated his propensity for hyperbole, admonishing those assumbled:

We won’t win this election, potentially, if we don’t win North Carolina. I hate to put a little pressure on you, but the fate of the republic rests on your shoulders. The fate of the world is teetering.

Continuing his them-vs.-us rhetoric, which has been the real hallmark of his presidency, Obama went on to warn:

They’re [the Republicans are] promising years of investigations years of hearings, more shutdowns, more obstruction.

You’d think to listen to him that the current head of the FBI, whose agency has opened probes on numerous fronts into the Clintons and their pay-to-play schemes, hadn’t been appointed by him.
