On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Morning Joe panel was very critical of several comments that President Obama made during an exit interview with longtime aide David Axelrod.
A particular comment that drew some wows from the panel was when Obama said he would weigh in on the issues of the day.
OBAMA: Now, that doesn’t mean that if a year from now or a year and a half from now or two years from now, there is an issue of such moment, such import, that — that isn’t just a debate about a particular tax bill or, you know, a particular policy but goes to some foundational issues about our democracy that I might not weigh in. You know, I’m still a citizen and — and that carries with it duties and obligations.
“I would be surprised if he did not get a phone call from George W. Bush, however, about those comments, about how he might intervene,” The Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson said of Obama’s remarks.
The panel also found Obama’s comments about Hillary Clinton playing it safe to be, as NBC’s Willie Geist put it, “a pretty clear broadside against Hillary Clinton.”
Robinson went on to criticize Obama for not developing a farm team within the Democratic Party during his tenure. Willie Geist added: “It’s just a statement of fact that the Democratic Party nationally is worse off than when President Obama took office.”
