The Democratic party’s determination to foist mentally unfit Senate candidate John Fetterman off on voters as a man who can stand up to the rigors of office got a late boost from Barack Obama with the former president and liberal superstar rallying the faithful in Pennsylvania.
On Saturday, Mr. Obama delivered a rousing address at Philadelphia’s Temple University where he stressed the grave importance of turning out to vote Democrat in an election year when the White House isn’t up for grabs, bemoaning the 2014 shellacking that congressional Democrats had inflicted on him in his second term and how the loss of the Senate altered the course of history by not allowing him to put his stamp on the Supreme Court.
“I can tell you from experience that midterms matter, a lot,” Obama told the crowd. “Some of you are too young but let me refresh your memories or give you a history lesson. When I was president, I got my butt whooped in midterm elections.”

“If we had kept the Senate in 2014, we’d have a very different Supreme Court making decisions about our most basic rights. So, midterms are no joke,” an animated Obama shouted.

Obama, who stopped off for a cup of coffee in the Senate before his 2008 presidential run, stressed the importance of the upper chamber to Democrats.
“Sometimes we get so focused on the presidency, but I am here to tell you that our democracy works as a team sport,” he said. “A president can’t do stuff alone, that’s not how our system is set up so what happens in the House, what happens in the Senate is vitally critical and the good news is, you have an outstanding president right now in the White House,” despite polls that show a majority of Americans aren’t buying that malarkey, as the crowd erupted with cheers.
The 2014 midterms were of enormous consequence as Republicans, after taking control of the Senate were able to prevent Obama’s nominee to replace conservative Justice Antonin Scalia from being seated on the nation’s highest court, a man named Merrick Garland, a vicious partisan who has abused his powers as Joe Biden’s attorney general.
After Scalia unexpectedly passed away in early 2016, Obama tabbed Garland as his replacement only to be thwarted when Senate Republicans stuck together to keep the open spot on the bench from being filled in an election year, instead it was former President Donald J. Trump’s opportunity to pick Scalia’s successor which he did with Justice Neil Gorsuch, the first of this historic three appointments that shifted the balance of the SCOTUS in a conservative direction.
Trump’s court picks would go on to vote to overturn abortion rights landmark Roe v. Wade, sending the decision on the controversial procedure back to the the states where it was until 1973.
There is far more at stake in this year’s midterms than the Supreme Court, the entire extremist agenda of the Democratic party is in danger of being derailed if control of the Senate shifts and that’s why Obama is expending the amount of effort that he has in the final days to prevent their transformational policies from being rolled back.
