Barack Obama should go down in history as the worst president the United States has ever seen, but the liberal mainstream media will never allow that to happen.
The thing is, numbers don’t lie. More people were unemployed and on food stamps under Obama than any other president. Lest we forget the numerous scandals and constant race-baiting.
Now, 44 is set to hit the campaign trail for Dems in 2018.
From Daily Caller:
Former President Barack Obama is planning to hit the campaign trail and fundraise for Democrats for the 2018 election cycle, giving the party access to the Obama’s sprawling political network.
The former president will mobilize his network of roughly 15,000 campaign alumni around the nation to help get out the vote and campaign for Democratic candidates as the party looks to regain control of the House in 2018.
Obama has reportedly already met with Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez and former Attorney General Eric Holder.
Obama won’t hit the campaign trail until the fall, when he will begin headlining fundraisers for down the ballot candidates. The former president is also expected to make campaign stops in states where competitive gubernatorial and senatorial races are happening in conjunction with competitive House races.
Politico has more:
“He’s going to be out there for candidates, he’ll be out there helping us in meaningful ways, not just in fundraising,” Perez said. “The guy was a state senator in ’04, and he was president of the United States four years later. He knows something about winning elections and building a brand.”
From the morning after Trump’s election, Obama has insisted that there would be a direct relation between how active he was and whether the next generation of Democrats would step up. He feels vindicated by how that played out over 2017.
“He’s keenly aware that injecting himself into day-to-day politics can make it more difficult for other Democratic voices to rise to prominence,” said Katie Hill, a spokeswoman for the former president. “You can expect him to continue weighing in strategically and staying above the fray while helping cultivate the next generation of Democratic leadership.”
This could be great news for Republicans. Obama did nothing beneficial for the country for eight full years.
However, midterm elections don’t generally favor the party controlling all three branches of government.
We’ll have to wait and see how Obama’s influence will benefit the midterms in November.
