'He's Over': Ingraham Says Obama Struggling With Ego and Insecurity
President Obama told Al Sharpton's radio show that Democrats who are avoiding him before the midterm elections actually do support his agenda.
“The bottom line though is, these are all folks who vote with me, they have supported my agenda in Congress. ... This isn’t about my feelings being hurt, these are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me,” said Obama, citing agreements with these candidates on issues like the minimum wage, fair pay, infrastructure spending and early childhood education.
"I tell them, I said you know what, you do what you need to win. I will be responsible for making sure that our voters turn out."
The comments come after the president said that his policies are on the ballot on Election Day.
Laura Ingraham rejected Obama's comment about his feelings, arguing "it is all about his feelings being hurt."
She said the president can't get over the fact that he's "finished" and that his policies have failed.
"In the end, Obama-ism didn't work. And all the candidates across the country know it. ... The country is leaving him," she said, pointing to the crowd in Maryland that left one of his speeches early.
Ingraham said the president's remarks to Sharpton are a "gift" to Republicans to use in campaign ads over the next few weeks.
"This is a lot about Obama's ego. I think he struggles with that. We all do, but he struggles with that. It's insecurity and ego combined and they're all at war with each other inside the president," said Ingraham.
