    Barack to the Rescue: Republican voters just found their motivation to vote in November

    Barack to the Rescue: Republican voters just found their motivation to vote in November

    This may be the moment when the rise of the big blue wave began to slow

    By almost every measure, Democrats have the enthusiasm heading towards November.

    While Republicans won most of the congressional special elections, Democrats outperformed relative to 2016 in those districts.

    The energy, fed by Trump Derangement Syndrome, makes it possible, perhaps likely, Democrats will take back the House.

    There didn’t seem to be anything that could make Republicans and Independents willing to vote Republican, get out of their slumber.


    Obama is back big league, and Republicans should be celebrating.

    In his speech at U. Illinois, Obama was Obama, arrogant and dismissive, even derisive towards Trump and Republicans. USA Today reports:

    Previewing his midterm elections campaign message, former President Barack Obama on Friday launched a direct and blistering attack on President Donald Trump and Republicans, and called on Americans to get to the ballot box in November to “restore some semblance of sanity to our politics.”

    At one point referencing the “crazy stuff that’s coming out of this White House,” Obama told students and others gathered at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign that even if they don’t agree with Democrats on certain issues, they should still be “concerned with our current course” and want to see a “restoration of honesty and decency and lawfulness in government.” …

    Obama’s scathing attack on Trump comes during a tumultuous week for the White House and represents a departure for Obama, who has kept a low profile since leaving office. He has typically avoided even mentioning Trump by name in previous speeches.

    This is a big mistake for Democrats. They didn’t need the Obama magic back, they have the momentum and motivation. “Just don’t blow it” should be Democrats’ strategy.

    Obama may be blowing it for them by motivating Republican voters.

    This may be the moment when the rise of the big blue wave began to slow, and vulnerable Republican candidates began to heal.

    Although Obama sounded just the same as his old obnoxious self, I have to step back and remember he’s talking to what Limbaugh calls young minds full of mush. College kids just don’t remember how he accomplished little but lied a lot during his presidency.

    Didn’t take me long to remember. However, the legacy media will never challenge him on what he said. The divider in chief is still the champ. As abusive as Trump can be at times, he has a long way to go to reach Obama level.

    What was the bipartisan norm on presidents criticizing their replacements? Obama began this within weeks of leaving office. The speech seems to cross the line of how an ex-president is supposed to act. I truly hope that the polling is off and the Dems don’t win the house.

    In spite of all of the Establishment efforts to protect the criminal activities of the Obama Administrations, especially those involving the DOJ and FBI, all of these things are floating to the surface of the swamp. And, as more of them are uncovered, it becomes more and more difficult to believe that the 44th POTUS had no knowledge of them.

    If the Dems do not secure the House, then it is very likely that these coverups will continue to fall apart. And, if they do, the possibility of criminal charges being filed increases. In that case, someone is going to sing and implicate everyone up to and including the former POTUS in criminal acts. And, that is one reason why Herr Obama is campaigning so strongly. He does not wish his legacy to put him behind bars.
