Thursday night, former President Barack Obama made a dig at Georgia’s GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker by comparing him to an all-too-familiar “Uncle Joe” who says “crazy stuff” and is given no “serious responsibilities.”
This author’s knee-jerk conclusion was that Obama made a Freudian slip and was unwittingly describing the possibly-senile President Joe Biden. That was a naive conclusion for several reasons.
For context, here is the relevant portion of the quote:
“We all know some folks in our lives, who we don’t wish them ill will. They say crazy stuff and we’re all like, ‘Well, Uncle Joe, you know what happened to him.’ They’re part of the family, but you don’t give them serious responsibilities.”

Upon further review, there is no way that Obama’s “crazy” “Uncle Joe” comment was an accident in Georgia.
Well, to start off, Obama is the greatest fraud ever foisted onto the American public. Biden is a close second, albeit for different reasons.
If media reports are to be believed, the American public knows that Biden wasn’t Obama’s first choice in either 2016 or 2020. He reportedly told fellow Democrats to never underestimate Biden’s ability to “f*** things up.”
As others have said, Biden’s time in office has been Obama’s third term. If the 44th president isn’t calling the shots directly, Biden’s staff is certainly littered with allies of the Left-wing president who are implementing the radical agenda that he started back in 2008.
Obama, for his part, likely feels comfortable enjoying his millions in Martha’s Vineyard because he knows the presidency is in good hands — just not “crazy” Uncle Joe’s.
Obama, of course, also campaigned on making sure the rich pay their fair share and that those taxes trickle down to the common man, but now he seems content to keep the progressive base at bay to avoid implementing said socialist plans — again, he’s a major huckster.
So while the “Dreams From My Father” author might smack the back of Biden and call him a dear old friend, that isn’t really the case. Anybody who has been paying attention understands that those in charge of the Democrat Party view Biden as a useful idiot.
To steal a phrase from Obama, Biden has been given no “serious responsibilities” in office.
He has no real vision for the country — beyond spouting off about the “soul of America.” Yet the current president has proven to be remarkably effective, chiefly by using executive orders.
As you read this, there is currently a massive redistribution of wealth via Biden-mandated racial equity initiatives designed to unleash a “total transformation of government.”
Does anybody seriously believe that Biden thought of that plan himself or even conceived the idea?
As many Daily Wire commenters pointed out, Obama is the same guy who infamously said during the 2008 presidential race, “You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig” while discussing his Republican opponents. The then-Democratic nominee made his comments roughly a week after GOP nominee Senator John McCain (R-AZ) had announced Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK) as his running mate.
Many people took it as a sexist attack, but the Obama campaign completely denied it was about Palin. Nonetheless, the reaction from the crowd at the time seemed to indicate that they were all in on the joke. Palin is a pig with lipstick, haha!
Meanwhile, Obama pretended he was too classy to ever say such a thing.
That brings us to the final reason why Obama could not possibly have slipped up while discussing “crazy” “Uncle Joe.”
He is a remarkably good politician who doesn’t make mistakes while revving up a crowd. That is one of the reasons why he, not Biden, is out on the campaign trail for Warnock.
Obama is a smooth operator and understands the power of language. Thus, his comments Thursday night served as a message to independent voters.
Warnock doesn’t really agree with Biden 96% of the time because Biden isn’t in charge. Warnock and the Democratic Party are in control. The president is just along for the ride so he can enjoy his golden years gallivanting around and eating all the ice cream he wants. The con that the Dems are pulling on the American people is all one big laugh, it appears.
Listeners get the sense that Obama’s real closing message in Georgia is if you don’t like Uncle Joe in the White House, don’t worry. He’s like those crazy uncles who are “part of the family, but you don’t give them serious responsibilities.” He just didn’t have to say that explicitly because everybody is in on the joke.
What a calculating phony.
