Obama tries to rally jittery Dems; chides ‘buzzkills’ in party ahead of limited stumping to salvage midterms

With their one-party rule over the federal government in serious jeopardy, Democrat candidates in key races can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that help is on the way and it won’t be coming in the form of the enormously unpopular Joe Biden.

Former President Barack Obama, the shining sun at the center of the liberal galaxy will be hitting the campaign trail to stump for Dems including a stop in Atlanta where he will do the heavy lifting to salvage Stacey Abrams’ troubled gubernatorial bid and stump for pro-abortion preacher Sen. Raphael Warnock who is fighting for his political life against former NFL star Herschel Walker.

Obama sought to downplay the gloomy mood among Democrats and rally the troops during an appearance on the progressive “Pod Save America” podcast on Friday, with the liberal rock star delivering soothing words to the nervous Nellie’s among the party faithful by suggesting that Dems can at times be “buzzkills.”

“I think we do get into trouble,” he said. “Look, I used to get into trouble whenever, as you guys know well, whenever I got a little too professorial and you know started when I was behind a podium as opposed to when I was in a crowd.”

“There were times when I’d get, you know, sound like I was giving a bunch of policy gobbledygook, and that’s not how people think about these issues,” he continued his pep talk. “They think about them in terms of, you know, the life I’m leading day to day. How does politics even, how is it even relevant to, you know, the things that I care most deeply about.”

“My family, my kids, work that gives me satisfaction, you know having fun,” said the nation’s 44th president. “You know, not being a buzzkill.”

“His remarks were greeted by laughter by the hosts who chimed in, “That’s a lesson for the Democratic party.”

Obama continued, “Yeah, and sometimes Democrats are. It’s like, you know, sometimes people just want to not feel as if they are walking on eggshells, and they want some acknowledgment that life is messy and that all of us, at any given moment, can say things the wrong way, you know, make mistakes,” gently jabbing the intolerant cancel culture warriors.

With his former boss Biden’s presence being treated like the kiss of death by jittery Dems in fear of being dislodged from the gravy train, Obama take to the hustings to make the case to voters on behalf of the candidates.

“First, on Oct. 28, he heads to Atlanta, where Stacey Abrams is making another gubernatorial run against incumbent rival Gov. Brian Kemp, and Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock is facing off against former football star Herschel Walker, Fox News reported. “Obama will also join Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers, Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes, Attorney General Josh Kaul, Sen. Tammy Baldwin, Rep. Gwen Moore and Democrats up and down the ballot in Milwaukee.”
