Former President Barack Obama appeared to take a veiled shot at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) during a speech on Friday, warning that the party was moving too far to the left and that the average American does not agree with their views.
Obama, who made the remarks to some of the party’s top donors at the annual meeting of the Democracy Alliance, said that Democrats, independents, and moderate Republicans do not align with the same beliefs that are found on “certain left-leaning Twitter feeds” or “the activist wing of our party.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Obama’s remark about “the activist wing of our party” appears to be a direct shot at Ocasio-Cortez, who is widely viewed as the face of the far-Left in the Democrat Party.
The New York Times reported:
“Even as we push the envelope and we are bold in our vision we also have to be rooted in reality,” Mr. Obama said. “The average American doesn’t think we have to completely tear down the system and remake it.”
“I don’t think we should be deluded into thinking that the resistance to certain approaches to things is simply because voters haven’t heard a bold enough proposal and if they hear something as bold as possible then immediately that’s going to activate them,” he said.
The fact that Mr. Obama offered his reassurances at the annual meeting of the Democracy Alliance, a club of wealthy liberals who donate hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to recommended political organizations, only underscored the intended audience of his message. In recent weeks, establishment-aligned Democrats, top donors and some strategists have expressed fears that the party lacks a strong enough candidate to defeat President Trump.
The Times reported that Obama’s comments marked an “extraordinary entrance into the primary contest” as Obama has previously avoided “even the appearance of influencing the direction of the race.”
