Former President Barack Obama has been making the rounds lately in order to get Democrat voters fired up to vote against the GOP in November, with hopes of taking back the House or Senate.
While in Illinois, Obama refused to refer to Donald Trump as “president.”
He also labeled Benghazi, in which four Americans lost their lives during an attack by Islamic extremists, a “wild conspiracy theory.”
During a speech in Anaheim, California, Barack claimed he promoted politics of hope while Trump exploits politics of fear.
Talk about blood-curdling.
From Gateway Pundit:
Obama told the crowd he promoted politics of hope and Trump exploits politics of fear.
More from OC Register:
Former President Barack Obama plunged headfirst into the fight for the midterm election on Saturday in Anaheim, lending his political might to seven Democratic congressional candidates running in key GOP-held districts, while warning voters of the risks of keeping Republicans in power.
“If we don’t step up, things can get worse,” Obama told a crowd of 900 Democrat faithful at the Anaheim Convention Center. “We have a chance to flip the House of Representatives; to say ‘enough is enough.’”
Get worse how? And for whom, exactly?
Isn’t unemployment down dramatically across the board? Isn’t the stock market thriving?
BREAKING President Obama, speaking at an election rally in Anaheim, California, says the US mid-term elections present “a chance to restore some sanity in our politics” by instituting “real checks and balances in Washington.”

Obama’s Southern California appearance came a day after he appeared at the University of Illinois to issue a searing indictment of his successor – a rarity for a former American president – criticizing Trump and the GOP for practicing “a politics of fear and resentment” and calling their actions a “threat to democracy.”
But on Saturday, Obama offered a more unifying message, reminiscent of his own campaign speeches. He told the supportive audience that Democrats have a chance to win over independents and Republicans who are disenchanted with the current GOP brand of politics, and called on attendees to rally turnout by making phone calls and knocking on doors. He said political indifference is “the biggest threat to our democracy right now.”
