The Hill
Obama to re-emerge in ‘delicate dance’ with Dems

Former President Obama will re-emerge on the national scene this fall, though Democrats expect him to do so with caution.

One aide describes the beginning of a “delicate dance” that aims to put Obama in the Democratic fray, but prevent him from remaining the face of the party. ...

“President Obama has amongst the highest Q rating in the world — exceeding LaBron [James], [Lionel] Messi and George Clooney — and is most certainly the most popular active political figure in the U.S.,” said Democratic strategist Chris Lehane. “[He] s incredibly popular with base Democratic voters who are critical cohorts in the midterms from a turnout perspective.

Unlike many of his recent predecessors, he left office without scandal and with high approval ratings,” Wade said. “And with the incumbent president in the White House bogged down by investigation and deep unpopularity, the contrast is helpful.

“Pundits are always going to overthink and overanalyze the pros and cons of having a former president on the campaign trail, but the truth is, there’s little downside. He has unique convening powers to draw a crowd, energize Democrats, make a closing argument, and then it is up to candidates to close the deal.”

The Hill
Dems say Obama return from sidelines is overdue

When former President Obama left the White House, he pledged to take a back seat to make room for other Democrats in the party to shine.

Nearly 17 months later, that’s proving to be an impossible task.

Obama drew headlines this week after a Politico report revealed that he is consulting a long line of would-be 2020 candidates and offering advice to party leadership. And he drew another round of headlines when it was announced that his political committee, Organizing for Action, is revving up to help Democrats in the midterm elections. ...

The desire among Democrats for Obama to take a more leading role in the midterm fight and party building in general is just getting stronger, particularly with the lack of alternatives. ...

The vacuum at the top of the party has been created by the fall of the Clintons; Obama’s disappearance, for the most part, from the public stage; and the fact that other Democrats with national voices are getting ready for 2020.

Obama readies fall campaign push, but some Dems say no thanks

Former President Obama is set to dive into the midterm elections next week with a speech in Illinois where he is expected to urge Democrats across the country to vote — addressing a problem that plagued the party in 2016. ...

The former president will kick off his push by delivering a speech at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on Friday. In the weeks ahead, Obama will also campaign in California, Illinois, Ohio and Pennsylvania, a person familiar with his schedule said. Not all Democrats want Obama’s help.

Democratic candidates running in states that President Trump won by double digits in 2016 would prefer that the former president stay far away.

Some Democrats in pro-Trump states, such as Sens. Bob Casey (Pa.), Debbie Stabenow (Mich.) and Sherrod Brown (Ohio), say they hope Obama will campaign for them.

Others, such as Sens. Jon Tester (Mont.) and Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), want to keep the race locked on the battle between themselves and their state rivals, fearing a high-profile surrogate like Obama could distract from the strategy.

:snippity:
I remember how the strategy of running away from Obama worked so well for the Democrats in 2010. :brickwallsmall:

Dammit sometimes I think they just want to lose. Obama is a master campaigner. He would help anywhere he went.

Obama to hit campaign trail in Ohio, California

Former President Obama will make his first campaign appearances of the 2018 midterm cycle in the coming weeks as he travels to Ohio and California to back Democratic candidates attempting to unseat Republican incumbents.

The New York Times reports that Obama will appear alongside seven Orange County, Calif., Democrats who are challenging Republicans in districts where Hillary Clinton successfully topped President Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

The former president will also appear alongside Ohio gubernatorial nominee Richard Cordray, the former head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, as Cordray seeks the seat currently held by term-limited Gov. John Kasich (R).

A spokeswoman for Obama's office told the Times that Obama would be active “in local, down-ballot races to build the Democratic Party’s bench.” ...

The spokeswoman added in an email to The Hill that Obama is scheduled to appear in Orange County on Saturday and added that the former president plans to campaign in four states including California, Illinois, Ohio and Pennsylvania ahead of the midterms.

2010 should be a lesson for Democrats,but seemingly some do not want to learn. There is no better campaigner in America. Sometimes I fear that his skin color is a part of the Democratic resistance to him.

Associated Press
Michelle Obama Will Host Voter Registration Rallies In Las Vegas And Miami

WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama will headline voter registration rallies in Las Vegas and Miami later this month during a week of action to encourage voting for the November elections by a nonpartisan organization she co-chairs, organizers said Wednesday.

The former first lady is hosting the Las Vegas event on Sept. 23 and the Miami rally on Sept. 28, said Stephanie Young, communications director for When We All Vote.

Mrs. Obama announced last month that When We All Vote will mark the 53rd anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, which prohibits racial discrimination in voting, by urging Americans to hold events Sept. 22-29 to sign people up to vote in the Nov. 6 midterm elections and beyond — regardless of political affiliation. She planned to address volunteers during a conference call Wednesday evening.

“Voting is the only way to ensure that our values and priorities are represented in the halls of power. And it’s not enough to just vote for president every four years,” Mrs. Obama said in July when she announced When We All Vote. She said it’s just as important to vote for mayor, governor, school board members, state lawmakers and members of Congress.

The Guardian
'He still has the ability to inspire': Barack Obama returns to campaign for Democrats

In contrast to Trump’s rallies, the former president’s message to American voters will focus on the health of the country’s democracy


Barack Obama plans to hit the campaign trail this week to stump for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections in a move that will mark his most public return to the political arena since departing the White House.

The former president, who has kept a relatively low profile since leaving office and handing the White House over to Donald Trump in January, 2017, is set to appear at a rally in California on Saturday.

He aims to storm the stump on behalf of several Democratic candidates competing in races that are critical to the party’s prospects of retaking control of the House of Representatives in November. Obama will subsequently campaign on behalf of Richard Cordray, the Democratic candidate for governor in Ohio, bringing his political star power to one of the most closely watched contests of the 2018 election cycle.

Obama’s presence and style on the campaign trail will almost certainly draw a sharp contrast to Donald Trump, who has held rallies across the country for Republicans that unfold in characteristically raucous fashion. Obama is not expected to directly take on his successor, aides close to the former president said, but to instead tackle a pivotal moment for the health of American democracy.

Obama will kick off the series of public appearances at the University of Illinois on Friday, where he is accepting an award for ethics in government and expected to unveil some of the themes that will define his message to American voters this fall.

New York Times
Obama Takes on Trump in Debut Speech of 2018 Campaign Role

URBANA, Ill. — Former President Barack Obama assailed President Trump on Friday as a “threat to democracy” as he emerged from a period of political silence to kick off a campaign blitz intended to help Democrats take control of Congress in the November midterm elections.

In a speech meant to frame his message on the campaign trail over the next two months, Mr. Obama offered a stinging indictment of his successor, sometimes by name, sometimes by inference, accusing him and his Republican supporters of practicing a “politics of fear and resentment,” cozying up to Russia, emboldening white supremacists and politicizing law enforcement agencies.

“None of this is conservative,” Mr. Obama told an auditorium of students from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. “I don’t mean to pretend I’m channeling Abraham Lincoln now but that’s not what he had in mind, I think, when he helped form the Republican Party. It’s not conservative. It sure isn’t normal. It’s radical. It’s a vision that says the protection of our power and those who back us is all that matters even when it hurts the country.”

Mr. Obama said the headlines of the last few days alone demonstrated that the country had gone off course under his successor’s leadership. He cited the essay by an anonymous administration official in The New York Times saying that a “quiet resistance” of “unsung heroes” on Mr. Trump’s team was secretly working to prevent him from making rash decisions that would harm the country.

“The claim that everything will turn out O.K. because there are people inside the White House who secretly aren’t following the president’s orders, this is not a check” on Mr. Trump, he said. “I’m serious here. That’s not how our democracy is supposed to work. They’re not doing us a service by actively promoting 90 percent of the crazy stuff that’s coming out of this White House and then saying don’t worry we’re preventing the other 10 percent.” ...

Mr. Trump lost no time in responding to his predecessor. Speaking to supporters in Fargo, N.D., he joked about Mr. Obama’s speech, “I’m sorry, I watched it, but I fell asleep.” :roll:

What they are doing is like responding to blown fuses by putting pennies in instead. It works to keep the power on, but is a horrible idea— dangerous and contrary to standard, accepted practice.

LA Times
Obama's rally for Democratic House candidates set for Anaheim on Saturday

Former President Obama will appear in Anaheim on Saturday morning to rally support for seven congressional candidates running for key House seats in California.

The event, which was announced this week, will be held in a ballroom in the Anaheim Convention Center. Doors open at 10 a.m. and the event will get underway about 10:15 a.m.

Tickets are being distributed by the candidates’ campaigns to their supporters. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which is organizing the rally, says it anticipates about 750 people will attend.

Obama’s speech, which will last about 20 minutes, is expected to highlight the stakes of this year’s midterm election and argue that “this moment in our country is too perilous for Democratic voters to sit out,” a spokeswoman said. Democrats can take control of the House if they gain 23 seats.

‘We’re going to fight’: Obama hits the campaign trail in California

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Waving a clipboard and calling for more citizen activism, former president Barack Obama returned to the campaign trail Saturday, reprising his role as the Democratic Party’s biggest star at a California rally for seven U.S. House candidates.

The event came nearly 20 months after Obama left the White House and committed himself to withdrawing from the daily political debate in the tradition of presidents past. In recent days, however, he has made clear that he can no longer remain restrained.

“The only way we reverse that cycle of anger and division is when each of us as citizens step up and say we are going to take it upon ourselves to do things differently,” he told a crowd of 900 at the Anaheim Convention Center, his shirt sleeves rolled up his arms. “We’re going to fight for the things that we believe in.”

Unlike the blistering speech he delivered Friday in Illinois, where he compared President Trump to a demagogue and described the current moment as a time of “political darkness,” Obama offered no pointed critiques of his successor — or mention him by name. Instead Obama struck a light note, focused on the biographies of California candidates he was there to help, calling out his love for the crowd three times, and even recounting his childhood visits to nearby Disneyland.

His central message, which he hit repeatedly, was that Americans needed to become more involved in electoral politics. He praised the recent outpouring of Democratic energy in recent special elections, and called for more.

Loved the one two punches of the two speeches. For independents, they have to see how insane Washington is under the GOP and President Obama seems like a voice of reason. The sleaziest of the Trumpers are saying President Obama will juice the base... are they proud the racists are motivated? Anyway the heck with them. Thank you President Obama!

The Hill: Pence: 'Very disappointing' to see Obama 'become so political':
Vice President Pence said it was “very disappointing” to see former President Obama return to the campaign trail and “become so political.”

"The truth is, the American people in 2016 rejected the policy and direction of Barack Obama when they elected President Donald Trump,” Pence told Fox News in a new interview set to air Sunday.

“It was very disappointing to see President Obama break with the tradition of former presidents, and become so political and roll out the same tired argument that he and liberals have made over the last eight years,” Pence added.
I'm guessing Obama was motivated by a few "disappointments" of his own.

Politico
Obama jumps into Dem fight to reclaim Ohio

Richard Cordray's campaign for governor has become a rallying point for Democrats focused on rebuilding the party.


COLUMBUS, Ohio — Barack Obama is diving into Democrats’ campaign to retake the Midwest on Thursday, headlining an Ohio rally for former top appointee Richard Cordray in a bid to rebuild the stricken state Democratic Party.

Cordray, the former attorney general of Ohio appointed by Obama to run the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, is locked in a dead-heat race with Republican state Attorney General Mike DeWine — a sign of Democrats’ resurgence since President Donald Trump swept Ohio and neighboring states on his way to victory in 2016.

The campaign has become a focus for national Democrats intent on rebuilding their party: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a Cordray mentor, has stumped for him, as has Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), another potential 2020 presidential candidate. Former Vice President Joe Biden will also return to Ohio to boost Cordray soon, though the specifics of his next visit have not yet come together. They are hoping to undo years of reversals for the state Democrats, who have been locked out of every statewide constitutional office since 2010 and had no leverage on the last redistricting process, allowing Republicans to cement majorities in the state legislature. ...

While Cordray has had to answer questions about his intensity on the campaign trail, he has benefitted from plenty among the Democratic base, which has flooded his campaign with online donations and has shown eagerness to support the Democratic ticket in November.

“What you're seeing is a changing of the guard," said Democrat Aftab Pureval, the candidate running against GOP Rep. Steve Chabot in Cincinnati. Pureval is set to deliver remarks before Obama's speech at the Thursday rally. "Folks like me and so many other first time candidates making an argument for a new generation of leadership."
