Obama Plans To "Train A Million Baracks and Michelles" To Lead Country
During a speech on Monday, former President Barack Obama said that even though we are currently living through some "challenging times" he is hopeful that he can fix all of this.
His plan is to train a new generation of leaders. He describes this as his "third act".
According to the Washington Examiner,
Former President Barack Obama said Monday these are "challenging times" but he remains hopeful because of the next generation of leaders that he aims to guide.
Touching on his "third act," the 44th president spoke of programs that have become a central pillar of his Obama Foundation and its $500 million presidential center project in Chicago.
He told a packed arena at Bell MTS Place how he plans to create a "university for social change" that will serve as a hub for young people in the U.S. and around the world who are skeptical of the "old institutions."
"If we train them — if we give them skills, support, financing, media training, spotlights, then they're the ones that are going to carry forward the solutions that we so desperately need," Obama said.
He then continued to speak on how the new leaders should be just like them.
"If we could form a network of those young leaders, not just in the United States, but around the world, then we got something," he said, adding, "if we can train a million Baracks and Michelles who are running around thinking they can change the world" hope is achievable.
How arrogant do you have to be to think that you were the best leader the world has ever seen and that every leader going forward should be just like you?
We're talking about a president who was behind Operation Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS targeting conservative organizations, the massive NSA surveillance, paying ransom for Iranian hostages, exchanging terrorists for Bowe Bergdahl who is an American traitor, and the list goes on.
Please...we do not need or want any more Baracks of Michelles in the future.
