A Republican majority in Congress would mean “hand-to-hand combat” on Capitol Hill for the next two years, threatening policies Democrats have enacted to stabilize the economy, President Obama warned Wednesday.
Speaking on Michael Baisden’s syndicated radio show, Obama also made a direct appeal to African Americans about the importance of the November vote, even though he’s not on the ballot himself.
“The reason we won [in 2008] is because young people, African Americans, Latinos — people who traditionally don’t vote in high numbers — voted in record numbers. We’ve got to have that same kind of turnout in this election,” he said. “If we think that we can just vote one time, then we have a nice party at Obama’s inauguration, and then we can kind of sit back and suddenly everything’s going to change – that’s just not how it works.”
Obama called into Baisden’s show, syndicated to 71 radio stations in 21 states, as part of his effort to rally core Democratic constituencies with less than four weeks before the election. Although his campaign itinerary is limited by sagging approval ratings in key states, Obama is making a more-targeted effort focused on supportive venues like Baisden’s show.
“Everybody in the barbershops, the beauty shops, and at work — everybody’s got to understand: This is a huge election,” he said. “If we turn out in strong numbers, then we will do fine. If we do not, if we are and decide, well, you know, Barack’s not running right now, so I’m just going to stay home, then I’m going to have my hands full up here on Capitol Hill.”
Days before the release of a key jobs report, Obama said most of the job losses his administration gets blamed for occurred before “any of my economic plans were put into place,” and that the country is still “experiencing the hangover from the misguided policies” of the last decade.
Excellent post HG
Soros's 'Open Society' is just one of many such organizations undercutting our economy and culture... Soros's organizations are generally SEDITIOUS in their nature and it is time for George Soros to be declared a persona non-grata. He needs to be arrested for sedition and treason. We can not let him continue to undermine our national institutions of government and society.
Trump would be advised to have the DOJ and FBI focus on Soros's seditious activities, to include his influence in the MSM, Education, and Government leadership... with an eye on determining if he has engaged in sedition and or treason. George Soros is a clear and present danger to the United States and the institutions of Western Culture, as we know them. His model for social change more clearly mimics the historical patterns of despotic governments and is antithetical to our Constitution and Republican form of government.
It is indeed time to speak truth to power... too, no longer remain silent in the face of evil. We must demand our institutions reject the Soros models of government and his money... we must support and DEMAND CHRISTIAN ETHICS BE REINSTATED AS OUR MORAL COMPASS IN GOVERNMENT AND SOCIETY.
Ron, I couldn't agree more. soros is a spawn of satan, a very evil and dangerous man. he should have been executed after WWII for selling fellow Jews to the Nazis!!!!!
The Usurper-in-Chief has aggregated all the ignorant, all the free-loaders, all the terrorists and malcontents in the George Soros led Ruling Elite Cabal's attempt to become the world's first 'Whole World Dictatorship'!
It will not succeed. Dear Pentagon, dear FBI, dear all anti-humanity military forces.
We will not bow the knee to your demands. We will not worship the Beast that you serve. We have tasted true freedom and absolutely NOTHING else will suffice. Neither your $Trillions, neither your perversions, neither your temptations to live forever or become super-beings. You have been a liar and a murderer from the beginning and it's time you returned to the pit from whence you came.
We Will Be Victorious! You should have known this from the beginning, the Very Beginning!
J C, very true. Jesus has already defeated satan, the one leftists worship, and Jesus defeated satan at the Cross and I will oppose his minions at every turn. I am old and partially disabled from a stroke but I will fight them with every bit of strength and ability I can muster, knowing that Jesus is on my side!!!!! I pray daily for the nation and its leaders. God has begun answering my prayers with the election of Trump over the satanic minion hitlery clintonista!!!!
