Former President Barack Obama hit the campaign trail before the 2018 midterms hoping to push radically progressive candidates across the finish line, but he came up short in races that mattered most.
In September, Obama campaigned for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray of Ohio.
“Rich is someone who has always been committed to solving problems,” Obama said according to Politico, adding that Cordray “represents the kind of leadership we need.”
That was the rally where Obama urged Ohioans to remember where the economic boom “started,” referring to his own presidency. But the fine people of Ohio, always a battleground state, weren’t buying it. They elected Republican Mike DeWine to be their next governor.
More recently, Obama went to bat for radically left socialists Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum who ran for governorships in Georgia and Florida, respectively.
“You know who will fight for you? Stacey Abrams!” said Obama. He added that Tuesday’s midterms were “one of the most important elections of our lives.”
Abrams is a gun-grabber who once burned the Georgia state flag in protest. Her campaign guests included the Black Panther Party and rabid anti-Semite Linda Sarsour, who infamously called for jihad against President Donald J. Trump. Despite Obama’s pleas Georgia voters decided that Abrams wasn’t quite their speed, and instead elected conservative Brian Kemp.
After that failure, Obama headed down to Florida to campaign for Gillum and Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.). Gillum was embroiled in an FBI investigation for accepting gifts in exchange for political favors as the Mayor of Tallahassee. His campaign also had a violence problem, with several staffers physically assaulting non-supporters in multiple instances.
“Why is it that the folks that won the last election are so mad all the time,” Obama said at the rally. “When I won the presidency, at least my side felt pretty good.”
That sales pitch was not strong enough. Gillum lost, and Nelson was unseated by Florida’s Republican governor, Rick Scott.
Obama did have some paltry campaign wins in deep blue states like Illinois and California, which were certain to vote Democrat whether he showed up on the campaign trail or not.
It turns out that radical socialist progressivism is what the American people want, regardless of how much it is shoved down their collective throat by do-nothing former president Obama.
TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
