Barack Obama Is Finally Honest About What Obamacare Was

Former president Barack Obama

In an uncharacteristic move, Obama directly named Trump, saying the current president was a "symptom, not the cause" of broader ailments in the nation's politics.

Casting aside the traditional low profile of a former president, Obama returned to the campaign trail on Friday in IL in an effort to help Democrats running in the upcoming midterm elections. "Your lies, your policies, and your divisiveness. More often it's manufactured by the powerful and the privileged, who want to keep us divided, keep is angry and keep us cynical, because it helps them maintain the status quo and keep their power and keep their privilege". "He is just capitalizing on resentment that politicians have been fanning for years", the former President said.

"You can't stand it that every metric under the Trump administration is better off than when you were in office".

Had he watched the speech, Trump would have known his gaggle boast perfectly illustrated the "dangerous times" Obama was referencing.

"I wish he had gone a little harder on Trump", said Lee Rice, 73, an electrician from Oakdale in California's central valley.

"We are Americans, we're supposed to stand up to bullies".

Barack Obama's post-presidential retreat into the private world seems to be over. "I found he's very good - very good for sleeping!" However according to journalist Bob Woodward's new book, he later told aides that clarification "was the biggest fucking mistake I've made" and the "worst speech I've ever given".

Carlos Barria/ReutersFormer President Barack Obama warned people not to be comforted by the controversial anonymous New York Times op-ed that claims there's a resistance in the Trump administration.

Republicans say voters will not find Mr Obama's argument appealing.

Obama unloaded on Trump for a litany of supposed misdeeds: his response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico last fall; his failure to thoroughly condemn the far-right after last year's deadly rally in Charlottesville; and his bashing of the press.

"Some of you may think I am exaggerating when I say this election is more important than any I can remember in my lifetime", Obama said in a speech at the University of IL. "Barack Obama wasn't ready for America", said Bongino.

The Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee organized Saturday's event, which did not include Obama-endorsed candidate Ammar Campa-Najjar who is running against Republican incumbent Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA).

Obama will share the billing with seven Democratic candidates in competitive U.S. House districts across California. "You've got to vote".

Time will tell whether a so-called Democratic "blue wave" happens in the midterms as some Democrats hope.
