Obama less combative in California speech

Students waiting

"He's just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years".

"I think Democrats, no party preference and moderate Republicans long for the day of 'no drama Obama, ' instead of the current president", Rouda said. Obama asked, "Its central organizing principle in foreign policy was the fight against Communism, and now they're cozying up to the former head of the KGB, actively blocking legislation that would defend our elections from Russian attack".

In his speech at the event, Obama is expected to give a call to action ahead of the midterms, emphasizing the importance of Americans' voting and how they can engage during this unique time in American politics.

Earlier this week, an unnamed White House official penned a New York Times opinion piece, claiming the president's worst impulses were tempered by "adults in the room", who ensured he did not act to the detriment of the U.S. on issues such as foreign policy.

The most interesting argument in Obama's speech in IL today was that both these conclusions are wrong.

Although Obama didn't reference President Trump by name, he didn't need to.

"It shouldn't be Democratic or Republican to say that we don't target groups of people because of what they look like or how they pray", Obama said.

He also issued a critique of his successor, President Donald Trump, attacking his policies and calling attention to Trump's tendency of pressuring the Justice Department.

Firmino is being a great guy, his family has given a good support to me and Alisson. The pre-season was very good, we had nine friendlies and I played nine", he said.


"Sending Obama out on the campaign trail forces every single red state Democrat to defend the failures of the Obama presidency", noted national GOP spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany in an opinion piece for Fox News.

"Obama should look at himself and what he got wrong, rather than put all the blame on Trump".

Obama's return is not without some downsides for Democrats, as a Republican senator pointed out.

Obama also delivered a message via a NowThis video released Saturday urging young people to get out and vote.

The speech was "something different", said Esther Castaneda, 34, a small business owner from Orange, California. "That unfortunately has been a spiral that we have been on for the last couple of years". He said immigrants are "much more moderate in their views", he said, leading them to register Democratic.

Obama told the students in the audience that they were coming of age during a pivotal moment, one in which the "powerful and the privileged" were fighting hard to maintain the status quo that keeps them comfortable. "It works for me", Whitaker said. After a particularly brutal loss in the 2010 midterms - 63 House seats and six Senate seats - Obama said the party had received a "shellacking".

Obama also accused Republicans of giving tax cuts to the rich, taking away healthcare from millions, and rejecting scientific facts behind climate change.

Obama is expected to deliver the same message in Cleveland on Thursday where he will campaign for Richard Cordray, the Democratic nominee for OH governor, and other Democrats.
