Barack Obama may be keeping a low profile as of late but there is little doubt that he is one of the hidden hands who is pulling the strings for the Democratic party.
While the flailing Joe Biden continues to await an endorsement from his former boss that would bolster his hopes for the nomination, Dear Leader has yet to divulge which of the woeful field of 2020 candidates who he will be supporting.
But more importantly is who he won’t be supporting and that isn’t going to go over well with a large chunk of the Dems’ rabidly socialist base.
According to a bombshell report just published by Politico, Obama would intervene in order to stop Bernie Sanders from becoming the Democrat nominee.
It is a story that echoes how Hillary’s stooges at the DNC worked behind the scenes to undermine the braying old communist crank in 2016, an act of sabotage that still rankles the Vermont senator’s hardcore supporters.

Via The Daily Wire, “Report: Barack Obama Will ‘Step In’ If The Democrats Nominate Bernie Sanders”:
President Barack Obama sees himself as the “lifeguard” of the Democratic party and will step in to head off a major disaster, like the party nominating an open socialist, according to an extensive report published Tuesday in Politico.
The Daily Wire already reported that Obama has been discussing the slate of potential 2020 Democratic presidential nominees with friends, and that he may have even tried to kneecap his former vice president, Joe Biden, telling advisors that he doesn’t believe Biden has the wherewithal to serve in the nation’s highest office.
But HuffPo caught a second tidbit from journalist Ryan Lizza’s extensive expose on the former president’s mostly covert involvement in the 2020 selection process: Obama will step in and even “raise his voice” if necessary to keep the party from nominating Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
“Back when Sanders seemed like more of a threat than he does now, Obama said privately that if Bernie were running away with the nomination, Obama would speak up to stop him,” Politico reports.
Sources close to Obama confirmed for Lizza that the former president, who campaigned on a far left platform but governed further towards the middle (though, still, substantially left of center), doesn’t view Sanders as a Democrat, and that, were Sanders to come close to snagging the all-important Democratic nod, Obama, who views himself as a “guardrail” and conscience for the party, would use his influence to reroute the nomination.
Despite his own far-left background as well as the desire to radically transform America into something alien and socialist during his rise to power, Mr. Obama isn’t about to give up his lucrative and cushy post-presidential years to true believers like Bernie and his cult who have made it clear that they are coming after the rich if he is elected.
It was only two weeks ago that Obama spoke to Democrat high-rollers where he delivered the warning that Americans aren’t prepared to “tear down the system” which is what Comrade Bernie and his winged monkeys like AOC are vowing to do if they can seize the levers of power in the USA.
"The average American doesn’t think we have to completely tear down the system and remake it. They just don't want to see crazy stuff."

According to Obama:
“The average American doesn’t think we have to completely tear down the system and remake it. And I think it’s important for us not to lose sight of that”
“There are a lot of persuadable voters and there are a lot of Democrats out there who just want to see things make sense. They just don’t want to see crazy stuff.
With Obama having now surfaced with a mission to take out Crazy Bernie is it possible that the 2020 nominee hasn’t even entered the race yet – could it be his wife? If so, look for an ugly civil war to erupt within the Democratic party that could spark a third-party challenge to the establishment.
