The Left will eat itself, so says Obama (via Timcast)

Tim Pool (aka Timcast) recently posted a video about the Left's circular firing squad of ideological purity.  It's a 14 minute video worth watching despite a couple of issues.  What issues?  Two immediately come to attention.

1. He let's Obama off easy - Obama famed on the right for telling us "You gotta sit in the back seat", was actually part of the group he's now warning about.  I'm willing to give Obama a pass because he's yesteryear's news now. I frankly don't care much about what he has to say.  He may be correct here, and he may have been given a pass, but he was complicit in the progressive puritanical purging when he mattered.

2. Tim Pool shortchanges conservatives by relegating their offering to 'beer' (aka being nicer).  He downplays the legitimate and very sound arguments that conservatives have on issues, by simply ignoring them. He does not talk about what the right offers other than that it's a salve to many many Americans. Well, if that's what it is, why is it so?  Maybe because it's grounded in common sense  things and it actually does work. I get it, he's a liberal and he is coming at it from a liberal viewpoint.  What he is perhaps failing to recognize that conservatism, is actually classical liberalism.  I'll give Tim a pass too - he's young and has not been exposed to a lot of conservative thinking.  Additionally he's done a lot of good for conservatives by standing on classical liberal principles that are at the core of modern conservatism.  To be honest, I don't care what a person calls themselves if they are are approaching things soundly and with common sense.

All that aside, here's what Tim has to say about Obama's recent foray into the left eating itself.
