Biggest loser yesterday: Barack Obama. The four candidates he campaigned the hardest for, in the process totally abandoning the tradition of ex-presidents staying out of politics, were Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Bill Nelson of Florida, Andrew Gillum of Florida, and Stacey Abrams of Georgia. They all lost.

Taylor not-so-Swift and the rest of the entertainment industry didn’t have much sway either, at least in the red states.

This happened while he was still in office too. I used to say he had The Manure Touch, everything he touched turned to cr@p. I bet Vegas got to the point that when he decided to campaign someplace they improved the odds on that pol’s opponent winning.

My district in Indiana stupidly elected Donnelly to the House and then the Senate. So happy to see that BS supposed “Blue Dawg” demorat go away.

I was in a bar when the returns started coming in and laughed when they called it against him. He probably would have lost by a wider margin if not for some Libertarian running too.

Yeah, and I forgot about the governorship of Ohio. The Democrat candidate was an ex-Obama administration official, he was expected to win, Kasich was all over the state trashing Trump… and the Republican still won. One other blessing will be that (hopefully) we never have to listen to Kasich again. Although the way things work nowadays he’ll probably end up on some news channel as an “expert.”

Right, people liked him, & they didn’t like his politics. Over 1,200 Dems were voted out during Obama’s time at the federal, state, county, & local levels. He did well for himself, but those he was with, not so much. Kinda like the community he “organized” back home in Chicago.

Wish he’d just put on his mom jeans and hop on his widdle bike with the streamers on the handle bars and peddle into forgotten history.

If you watched him at all prior to the election, he was a mess, and drew small crowds…Soon Barry will be down to standing on a soap box next to an ice cream truck handing out “Soros” bucks tio kids..and just for fun he can bring along Anthony Weiner to scope out the 16 year old girls and boys for Himself, Barry and Bill Clinton.

Obama like Hitlery is no longer relevant to anything..

But they won’t go away, & they can’t. These are people who cannot live without politics because they would be homeless if they couldn’t be in politics. That is why these types of people are relevant. They don’t have a way to be relevant outside of the political world, & they don’t have the decency to leave us alone.

Sounds like disparate impact to me; the ACLU should file suit to overturn these four elections on the basis of voter discrimination against a minority politician.

Do NOT give them any ideas. They can already come up with many off the wall bull shit reasons.
