Does Barack Obama Think That He’s Still the President?

In all fairness, things must be kind of hard for former President Barack Obama. Every candidate he endorsed in battleground states during the midterms lost, and Democratic Party leaders are starting to distance themselves from their once universally adored leader.

It’s not easy going from the most loved person on Earth (according to the media) to someone almost no one cares about anymore, so on that point we sympathize with the former commander-in-chief.

But here’s the thing, and Bill Clinton might want to listen as well: when your time is up, your time is up. The Democratic Party was handed its own backside in the immediate aftermath of Obama’s presidency. In many ways, Donald Trump rose to power because working class Americans were so disillusioned with the former president’s brand of politics. Think about it: Trump and Obama could not be more opposite in terms of both policy and personality if they tried — and they certainly do.

The Democratic Party did pick up significant ground in the 2018 midterm elections, but its rebranding effort isn’t finished yet. Outside of deep blue districts, hard-left progressives were routed in every single election. If they want a repeat of 2016 in 2020, they’ll let the former president remain the face of their party. Perhaps that’s what Republican voters should be hoping for…
