Democrats stuck Biden on the shelf this midterm season. The very unpopular president has not been to many rallies or campaign events. He is even taking a long weekend off, just before early voting begins.
It doesn’t seem the left has many stars that can help them. Celebrities no longer bring in voters like they used to. And plenty of entertainers are avoiding politics, knowing it can hurt their careers.
But what about Obama? The former president is popping up, trying to muster the troops. But his party has turned on him, saying it’s way too late to help.
From The Hill:
For weeks, Democrats had been wondering where Obama was ahead of a midterm fight where the party is clinging to the slimmest of majorities in the House and Senate…
Obama did attend four fundraisers in August and September to raise money for candidates, but some Democrats say that’s not enough given his standing and ability to draw a crowd.
Oh, boo-hoo! Democrats are complaining that a man who carried them for six years did come out, again, and save their bacon this year.
Democrats are apparently upset that Obama has been largely absent this year. He’s only showed up recently, just a few weeks before the elections.
It seems the left wanted Obama to use his fading star power once more, to bring out people and help win the election cycle.
Hey, if Democrats can’t win elections without Obama’s help, they aren’t much of a party.
Obama is hardly the golden boy he used to be. He might help get some folks excited.
But it’s a long time since 2008. And many Americans no longer look to him as a source of inspiration.
For Democrats to think Obama can save their skins, after failing for over two years, is pretty laughable.
Obama has very few achievements himself. And showing up could be a reminder to many voters of the dark days of the Obama years–when his health care plan failed to live up to expectations.
Voters, in the end, are going to the polls based on what Democrats currently in power have done. That means Joe Biden and his rabble of idiots in Congress.
Obama can break dance on the moon, but it won’t change how horribly the Democrats have treated America.
- Obama is starting to pop up before the midterms, but Democrats aren’t happy.
- Some claim he is coming out too late to change their fortunes.
- This comes as many polls reveal Democrats will lose big this November.
