Democrats are turning away Barack Obama for this embarrassing reason

Barack Obama has tried to keep a low profile since he left the White House.

He has only crawled out of hiding to take an occasional potshot at President Trump.

But the midterms are around the corner and these Democrats are avoiding him like the plague.

Traditionally past presidents have used their star power to raise money and rally voters for their party during election years like 2018.

But Barack Obama’s phone isn’t ringing.

Democrats in Montana, North Dakota, Missouri and elsewhere are afraid to host Obama on the campaign trail because President Trump won their states in the 2016 election by a great margin.

Even associating with Obama would be damaging to their campaigns.

The Hill reports:

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

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.

“We’re not going to use any surrogates. Surrogates are fine but we don’t need them. The race is myself and Matt Rosendale and that’s the way we want to keep it,” Tester told The Hill, referring to his GOP challenger.

Asked if she thought Obama might show up in North Dakota, Heitkamp said: “Nope, no.”

Trotting out Obama on the campaign trail would lead to sure defeat for Sens. Tester and Heitkamp.

Obama’s regulatory policies crushed the energy boom in their states.

These races will come down to the wire and will likely decide control of the Senate.

    TWO reasons why the Democrats LOST again in 2016 were
    1) Clinton’s choice was a Terrible Choice
    2) Obama 8 years of INCOMPETENCE …..but the kNUCKLE DRAGGING DEMS cannot GET OVER IT

  2. The Texan says:

    We still want to see his education records!! And get an explanation about his Social Security card.

    • PatrioTEA says:

      And, a whole lot more of just who he was/is! Talk about Manchurian Candidates!

    • Richard Knoch says:

      Could this have anything about losing 1,000, or so, local, state and Federal elected seats during the obamba Regime?

      Or, maybe, it’s that obamba was a world class guns salesman during his Regime?

      Or, maybe, that obamba did the gun salesman gig for free . . . . no commission?

    • If I was a democrat running for any office , Obama would be no where near my campaign . He is the very reason Trump beat the crap out of Hillary . It has become a fact , Obama had the dirtiness bunch of people working for him ever assembled . They are still finding the traders of the government and getting them out two years later , and more to come .

    • russell remmert says:

      he was a illegal for sure

    • Deena says:

      A few months ago he confessed that he was muslim n born in kenya, but the Left news didnt cover it did it. Trump knew all along but too many ppl wouldnt believe it would they. Instead they voted in an 8 yr term muslim that gave 800 billion to iran. Stupid stupid America

    • russell remmert says:

      yes not the phony birth certificate

    • Sallyann says:

      I voted he’d help their chance in the poll and wish everyone else does the same. If they’re foolish enough to believe and then act on it, any potential problems on election day will be solved. ;o)

  3. it is clear that the present strategy of the party of Marx, Mohammed and Mexico is entirely the work of the miscegenated coke-snorting pothead African muslim communist usurper who got so close to being dictator between 2009 and 2017 that he could smell it. The Obammunists will vote every cuck, campesino and cadaver they can get their hands on in November, top that up with the sort of creative vote counting that is standard procedure on the Dear Leader’s native continent, and then impeach the legitimately-elected President. Negotiations are already underway between Antifa and the Black Muslims as to who will assassinate the Vice President; perhaps some of the “shootings” orchestrated over the last year or two by the FBI were test runs for putting newly-installed Speaker Pelosi in the Mulatto House. Pelosi will then appoint The Drunken Lesbian Witch as Vice President, resign and the 2016 election will be reversed, this time with a Congress dominated by the party of Hillary, Hodgkinson and Hogg. That creaky old “charter of negative liberties” written by the slave-owners in Philadelphia will be done away with, and The Mongrel will return on the shoulders of the mestizos and the mohammedans as president-for-life like his boyhood heroes Mobutu and Mugabe. The only way to stop this is to put the party of Farrakhan, Franken and Fabianism where free people have previously put the Jacobins, the Nazis, the Communist Party of the USSR and the Khmer Rouge.

    • If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place. CLAPPER’S OWN CONFESSION
      AMERICANS WE HAVE TO TAKE BACK OUR AMERICA FROM THE EVIL CRIMINAL ACTS OF DEMOCRATS………………………..TO SOLVE AMERICAS PROBLEMS MAKE THIS CHOICE WE THE PEOPLE’ HAVE THE POWER OF OUR VOICES AND OUR VOTES, TO VOTE OUT THE ENTIRE LYING,CORRUPT, TREASONOUS DEMOCRAT PARTY COME NOV 2018, VOTE TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND TO END ALL CORRUPTIONS IN WASHINGTON GOVERNMENT

    • Deena says:

He is frickin crooked as well as Rosenstein n they are totally working against our Great President TRUMP right now n i wish he cld fire them asap. And, McCain was another turncoat, liar, crooked n corrupt that became a true Dem towards the end of his life. Period

  5. W FLATT says:

    Obama, his staff of Muslims, Hilary and her staff, plus all the top leaders in Obama’s adminstration should be arrested as traitors.

    • David says:

      Obama can’t be arrested for treason because he is not an American.

  6. Cyn says:

    A LOW profile??? Give me a break! I’m ROFLMAO at THAT statement. If he was keeping low profile this foreigner, illegal, would NOT have remained in DC. I certainly hope that all of obummer’s records are unsealed and the REAL truth about him revealed.

  7. Emma says:

    I saw that.
    Not the first time either.
    He gave a speech to some college students that only in America could a Kenyan born black man become the POTUS
    He said that shows them Anything is possible

    • W FLATT says:

      He also said on World Wide TV that he was not born in Hawaii, but was born in Kenyon and that he was a MUSLIM., His Grandmother and the Ambassador from Kenyon also said he was born in Kenyon, if fact they show a sign that said HOME OF OBAMA. Like it or not, you idiots that voted for Obama, voted for a Muslim, a race trying to destroy America. He has proven such, when he gave Billions of tax payers money to people trying to kill us, his comrads.

    • M says:

      Hey Emma, I wonder if that speech is on video. Can you give us details such as what university, when, etc. Thank you.

  8. bagster53 says:

    it’s a good thing liberals have a short memory , remember how democrats lost over a thousand seats while the kenyan freak was president , asking for the kenyan freaks help is like having a death wish

  9. john hull says:

    It’s obvious that you wouldn’t recognize the truth if you tripped over it
    TROLL! I’m not wasting any more of my time on such a worthless POS as you! Truth Truth!!!!

  10. Gabriella says:

    I like so many comments about OBOZO, or Obrumma brumma ASS . Which name you like . .Barbara Cook is right! Sid A. Raymond Martuci,and Bill , all of them wrote the truth. Obozo not just “-one big awful mistake America” Obrumma ass became president with a big political fraud with George Soros’s help .Soros dream destroy Europe and America. He is a SATAN. Obozo an evil, Soros a satan, their are one match. This explain everything.

    • Roberta Hill says:

      Exactly spot on! Gabriella.
      He’s a OLama, Afaggo, yes Obozo.
      Democrats are users, liars & when they run from another user, liar it doesn’t make a difference they are all the same.
      “PARASITES” 🐍🐍🐍🐍

  11. Diane says:

    First of all barry soetoro (aka barack hussein obama) has done ANYTHING but “keep a low profile” since we pried him out of our White House!!! He has created two organizations one called Organizing for Action that has more than 30,000 people he has trained to be street fighters like atifa – their mission being to cause terror and violence in the streets of America! Second – he is like the PLAGUE when it comes to campaigning!!! EVERYONE he STUMPED for in 2016 LOST!!!!! We have NEVER had a former “president” acting as a CRIMINAL! WHEN IS SOMEONE GOING TO DO A PROPER INVESTIGATION OF HIM?!!!!!

    • Fr Tom Martin says:

      I do not think he is lying low. Like all crooks he is just trying to keep the light from shining on what he is doing. What he is doing is not good for the USA

  12. steven jacobs says:

    they were kissing his behind when he was President

  13. Johnny says:

    There are so many embarrassing reasons to be turning away from Obama.

  14. Will says:

    He’s tried to keep a low profile, but he hasn’t done too good a job at that. He should’ve been like Bush and been out of the public light completely and not do things like sign a deal with Netflix.

  15. Rodger Shull says:

    But I hope he shows up to endorse them and PUTS THE BIG JINKS on them, he is a loser and FAKE 44th potus, nothing more than a paid by soros iraning communitst spy.

  16. Jondarmes says:

    Bring on the Kenyan, you democrats are missing the boat by not having him campaign for you. You should at least get him to do robocalls. Trust me. BUILD THE WALL, DEPORT THEM ALL, MAGA, OR ELSE!!!

  17. Steve says:

    There are polls on some of these sites that ask if Obama was a great president? Well I think these candidates just answered that question for all of us but we true patriots knew the answer many years ago. If he was,then they would be marching him out and throwing him in our face,but I guess they realize the gig is up and others have finally realized how they got played for 8 years. We don’t want or need any more of that kind of leadership and we sure don’t want anyone ho would endorse. Vote Republican and hope for a red wave to keep Pelosi and Shumer out of power. If they get it, all they will do is reverse all the good that has been done for the last 20 months, and gum up immigration and be against anything that benefits hard working Americans no matter what party you are in or what race you are are what gender you are. They are against the common folks especially the deplorables. So don’t let these elitist regain a foothold in either chamber. Make sure we get a majority even if you have to vote for a Rhino,is still better than a Pelosi, Watters, or Shumer clone that loves the Big O agenda of tearing down America and selling us out and making us slaves to the new world order. They could have done some of the things Trump has done but they were getting rich while millions of law abiding Americans suffered, so in reality they don’t give 2 cents about any of us so vote their sorry asses out an MAGA! Still a deplorable cultist vet that supports traditional values and the constitution!

  18. Brat says:

    At least President Trump stands for America!

  19. dlmstl says:

    While they are at it, drag out the Hunchback of Chappaqua, San Fran Nan, Wakanda Waters and the MA Cherokee. Reminding the voters of Barry and Moochie’s $60M book deal, that 10M manse in DC and $$$$$ hustling on the speaking circuit won’t ‘play’ in fly-over country.

  20. I hope he campaigns for all of them, Hillary should join him on the campaign trail, I’m sure they can help Republicans win.

    • john hull says:

      I hope Oblowzo A/K/a Bathhouse Barry campaigns for the Demoncraps also. That satanic SOB will be Poison to their worthless cause. Along with cry’n Chuck, Nasty Piglousy and Lieawatha. I think those three should be made Honorary Republicans! What think you!

  21. George says:

    I hope all the dumborats ask the commie liar for help . That will definitely help the Republican (AMERICAN) candidates win!!

  22. Don Lehmer says:

    I’m hoping Obama, and the politicians who promoted him by lying about his birth/religion/views of America/etc., get their just due.

  23. Barbara Cook says:

    I am hoping and praying that former Obama will show up for the Democrats to show his support for them, and then, when it comes time to vote, I am praying that every Democrat looses their States election, that way, President Trump will be able to have more Republicans elected to the House and the Senate to help with getting his agenda processed and pushed through.

    Once that happens, ” Maybe, just Maybe, President Trump will be able to get the funding that he fully deserves for his Border Wall to get built, and then every illegal immigrant will get deported back to their home country!”

    Former Obama is nothing but trouble for every American citizen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He didn’t do any good for America and Americas citizens. He was for destroying everything about America!!!!!!!

    • I wholeheartedly agree ! There are more evil things he did against taxpayers dollars.

      • Vicki says:

        Examples please.

      • Fr Tom Martin says:

        Obamacare, released money to Iran, did not defend Embassy Compound in Libya, gave away USA uranium to Russia but that was not colluding was it, weakened USA military, did not support law enforcement encouraging riots, more people had to depend on welfare, violated the Constitution many times and got away with it , did not get prisoners held abroad released as Trump has, released five of our enemy for one of our traitors, spend millions on a computer system that failed, allowed Hillary to continue using private server and said he did not know but had sent emails to that same server, wanted open borders, wanted to allow refugees in without proper venting, pushed for transgenders in the military even if did not come into effect until a Trump was in office, made promised to Gay community that he had no intention of keeping , he was truly wanting a dictator President that is why he issued executive orders, his public bathroom stand caused many parents grief, etc I am tired of talking about his failures

  24. Francisco Machado says:

    Obama is probably too right-wing for some of the current up-and-coming Democrats – Remember: Ocasio-Cortez is the Future of the Democrat Party!

  25. Sid A says:

    He needs to be given a 1 way ticket to Africa with no security and no bank account and no pasport to get back into the USA. He has left his damage. President Trump is doing a fantastic job, but it takes time to drain obama’s swamp.

  26. Ron says:

    OBAMA! One Big Awful Mistake America!

  27. Raymond Martucci says:

    Obama was Americas biggest mistake to have as a president bad enough he was in our government in the first place. Hope the democracts will sink they can’t win elections on fair they have others and the media always on their side.

    • K says:

      Don’t forget, it was OHRAH who tossed him front & center in the limelight of her raving fans. None of us should forget that, especially if she’s foolish enough to run in 2020.

      • Fr Tom Martin says:

        She is another hypocrite. She makes out like she is so charitable. She donates for publicity. Why does anyone need about five homes that each cost millions. She sure was generous with schools in Africa what did she do or have her President do for schools in the USA. I do not care she shacks up with a man, but do not make her a model for our children.

  28. Tommie Walker says:

    I CAN’T TALK ABOUT Obozo…… He makes me sick…

  29. Bill says:

    Nobody running for office would want an anti-American to help them. The butthole did everything he could to bring the USA down to the level of the lowest third world country. He should be deported to Iran where he could help them spend the billions of our dollars he sent to them to help them build nuclear weapons to turn on us.

  30. Earl says:

    The faithful Democratic followers are walking away from the DumboRat Party and it seams like those running as DumboRATS are RUNNING AWAY FROM OBAMASS. ObamASS would hurt the DumboRATS in this election, but OamASS and THE THREE HORSEWOMEN WILL HELP THE CONSERVATIVES.
    YOU MAY CENSOR MY POST, BUT THE SOCIAL MEDIA WIKL NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111

  31. Earl says:

  32. Obozo, has been very active in taking down President Trump and going out of Country talking trash about America.
    But why the DemonRats don’t want him is: He always makes every appearance all about HIM!

  33. Jorge says:

    what a waste of time this Obamer was. Not even those whom are part of his Political party want to associate with him. WOW, WOW.

    I think that the Dems. are going to be out in left field for the next several elections to come.

    • truthistruth says:

      I think you are living in fantasyland and have not been paying attention to the demographics Jorge. Minorities are having more kids, women are growing in power and the young are heavily voting with the Democrats. That is why the Grand ol’ corruption Party is seeking to reduce voters at the polls. The dems hold an advantage in the cities, the GOP in rural areas – – but rural areas are declining as jobs are decreasing. Technology increases will mean more jobs in silicon valley areas. But most of you posters to this site are laughable – – if Barack could have run for a third term, it would have been he THIRD landslide victory. At least Barack kept his cool, whereas Trump is continually nasty, sour and thrown off center by a professional athlete who says something Trump does not like.

      • Fr Tom Martin says:

        Obama. was two face Trump is not. The Republican voters can lose the election if they do not turn out but that in my opinion is not President Trumps fault. I do not like what some professional athletes say either and if I had my way I would cut off their money supply. If you approve you lack loyalty to the country.

      • Christopher D. says:

        I think that there is a sense of hope, that things are turning around. I see a booming stock market and a strong growth in the job market. I remember that Mr. Obama said that “2% was the new normal.” If you haven’t noticed the GDP was a healthy 4%. MAGA!
