Barack Obama hit the campaign trail hard for Democrats in the closing stretch of the midterm elections.
It ended up being the biggest mistake of his life.
Now Barack Obama can never show his face again after what happened on Election Day.
Barack Obama Makes Historic Decision to Campaign against Donald Trump
Normally past Presidents do not campaign against the current President.
It gives the impression America does not have one Commander-in-Chief.
But Barack Obama never cared about norms or American tradition.
He threw himself into the midterm election like no former President had before.
Not only did he campaign for Democrats, but he also attacked Republicans and Trump in hysterical terms.
During a campaign swing through Florida, Obama mocked Trump and GOP for ‘making things up.’
“We all try to put a positive spin on things, but what we have not seen the way we are seeing right now is politicians just blatantly, repeatedly, baldly, shamelessly lie. Just making stuff up. That’s what they’re doing now all the time. By the way, it’s not the first time. They do this every election cycle. Try to terrify folks and then the election comes and problem suddenly magically vanishes,” Obama ranted.
Obama then made a huge mistake when he told a lie about the migrant caravan.
“…Now in 2018m they’re telling you the existential threat to America is a bunch of poor refugees a thousand miles away. They’re even taking our brave troops away from their families for a political stunt at the border,” he added.
Barack Obama’s Campaigning Backfires
Democrats would have been better off if Obama stayed home and never appeared in public.
Most of the candidates he campaigned for lost.
In Florida, Republicans held on to the Governor’s mansion and ousted Senator Bill Nelson.
Pre-election polls showed both Democrats winning easily.
But two factors turbocharged the GOP base turnout.
First, Donald Trump campaigned hard in the state.
He held two rallies there the last week of the campaign.
Republican voters responded to Trump’s appeals to support his candidates.
Secondly, Barack Obama motivates Republicans to turn out.
Rank-and-file Republicans view Obama as one of the worst Presidents in American history,
He spent eight years weakening America and attacking the nation’s cultural fabric.
If Obama says he needs someone in Washington, Republicans will turn out to make sure that does not happen.
In addition, Obama campaigned for Stacey Abrams in Georgia.
Abrams fought to become the nation’s first black female governor.
Obama and national Democrats poured resources into her race because they believe Georgia is a swing state in 2020.
But Obama turned out to deliver another political kiss of death.
Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp led Abrams by 75,000 votes.
Abrams refused to concede and Democrats tried to cheat by keeping polling places open all night in order to drag Kemp below 50 percent of the vote and force a runoff.
Even if there is a runoff Kemp is favored to win.
Obama campaigned for candidates across the country in 2018.
But like in 2010, 2014 and 2016, the American people rejected Democrats supported by Barack Obama.
