Former President Barack Obama has a new book that is set to come out on November 17 called ‘A Promised Land’. The book details childhood events and his first four years of office and will be the first of a two-volume set. CNN is publishing the book and has released a few excerpts which is compelling conservatives to call Obama out.
One of the excerpts states, “I’m not yet ready to abandon the possibility of America. I wrote my book for young people — as an invitation to bring about through hard work, determination, and a big dose of imagination, an America that finally aligns with all that is best in us.”
This prompted a fiery response from South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem on Twitter where she slammed him and his leadership while in the Oval Office. She called it a ridiculous message and said that he had 8 years to make America prosper and instead sold American workers out to China.
Kristi Noem believes Obama to be a hypocrite for believing that America has not been realized. He doesn’t really think that America is a real thing and that Americans still face the test to see if she can be successful, like she has been for the last 200+ years. He says the world is watching America to see if she’ll survive and live up to her “creed” attributing that creed to the ideals of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
“And so the world watches America — the only great power in history made up of people from every corner of the planet, comprising every race and faith and cultural practice — to see if our experiment in democracy can work. To see if we can do what no other nation has ever done. To see if we can actually live up to the meaning of our creed.
“The jury’s still out. I’m encouraged by the record-setting number of Americans who turned out to vote in last week’s election, and have an abiding trust in Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, in their character and capacity to do what is right. But I also know that no single election will settle the matter. Our divisions run deep; our challenges are daunting.”
Obama thinks that America’s values line up with a Biden-Harris administration. An administration that certainly would move to limit or revoke every right and freedom that Americans have had for decades. They want to defund the police, censor speech, criminalize hate speech but allow for rapists and drug deals to live free. They want a nationwide lockdown and mandatory mask-wearing. They want to control American life in every possible way. They do not prioritize individual liberty and freedom of thought; two of the founding reason behind America’s creation.
Kristi Noem, however, does line up with American principles. She believes that Americans are capable and should be allowed to live their lives without government interference and that the job of the government is to protect our freedoms, not grant them. Noem was criticized for her handling of the coronavirus, but she stood her ground and said,
“Our constitution ensures that the citizen’s right is protected. I agree with the role of our government as set forth in our state and in our national constitution. I took an oath to uphold these constitutions. My role with respect to public safety is something I take very seriously. The people themselves are primarily responsible for their safety. They are the ones that are entrusted with expansive freedoms – they are free to exercise their rights to work, worship, and play – or to stay at home, or to conduct social distancing. The calls to apply a one-size-fits all approach to this problem in South Dakota is herd mentality, not leadership.”Kristi Noem, South Dakota Governor
