An old video has resurfaced of then-Senator Barack Obama as he ran for president in 2008 making a stunning admission about voter fraud. He said, “I tell you what, it helps in Ohio that we got Democrats in charge of the machines.” He then added, “But look, I come from Chicago so I want to be honest. It’s not as if it’s just Republicans who have monkeyed around with elections in the past, sometimes Democrats have too. Whenever people are in power, they have this tendency to try to, you know, tilt things in their direction.”

For all of the Democrats’ claims that Republicans are “election deniers” (when really, they are), an old video of then-Sen. Barack Obama as he ran for president in 2008 making a stunning admission about who’s in charge of voting machines has resurfaced.

The video featured Obama talking casually to a small crowd on the campus of Kent State University in Ohio, according to C-SPAN, which carried the 2008 event live.

“I tell you what, it helps in Ohio that we got Democrats in charge of the machines,” Obama told the crowd, which clapped at his remark.

“But look, I come from Chicago so I want to be honest. It’s not as if it’s just Republicans who have monkeyed around with elections in the past, sometimes Democrats have too,” he said, likely in reference to all of the cheating that has taken place in his hometown for a century.

“Whenever people are in power, they have this tendency to try to, you know, tilt things in their direction,” he went on — in what could be a premonition about what Democrats did in 2020 and again last week.

Obama won the swing state in 2008 and 2012, but Ohioans have voted for the Republican presidential candidate — in this case, Donald Trump — since then, as the state has become increasingly red.

Interestingly, in the recent past, whoever won Ohio went on to win the election, but that didn’t happen in 2020. Trump also won 18 of 19 bellwether countries but still failed to ‘win’ his reelection.

Needless to say, there have been election shenanigans during last week’s midterms as well, mostly due to excessive days needed to count ballots — and whenever that happens, the Republican never wins.

So it’s apparently good that Democrats control voting machines but bad if Republicans (and even a lot of honest Democrats) make allegations of cheating. Barry Soetoro is just another Machiavellian politician who will try to convince you that an idea is good as long as it’s to his advantage.
