Reporting from Washington A Republican majority in Congress would mean "hand-to-hand combat" on Capitol Hill for the next two years, threatening policies Democrats have enacted to stabilize the economy, President Obama warned Thursday.
Speaking on Michael Baisden's syndicated radio show, Obama also made a direct appeal to African Americans about the importance of the November vote, even though he's not on the ballot himself.
"The reason we won [in 2008] is because young people, African Americans, Latinos -- people who traditionally don't vote in high numbers -- voted in record numbers. We've got to have that same kind of turnout in this election," he said. "If we think that we can just vote one time, then we have a nice party at Obama's inauguration, and then we can kind of sit back and suddenly everything's going to change that's just not how it works."

And this is a problem because, girly man?
“...policies Democrats have established to stabilize the economy”? Is he kidding?
Bring it on.
I’ll pitch in for a bayonet.
The Democrats have stabilized the economy alright - the same way that somebody in a coma is stable.
It’s all about race for him, isn’t it??
I truly HATE this man.
What happened to the man who saw the country not as red and blue states, but as the United States?
He and his fellow Democrats are scared chitless about November.
Bring it on, dental-floss arms!
It saddens me that I cannot even see the person who counters my vote, because that person either never existed or is dead.
This is unheard of. An American President advocating actual war between Parties. Ad you KNOW his evil minions will take this literally.
He needs to be Impeached ASAP. Hope the IRS thing pans out.
That was one of the issues the Dums used against NIXON.
Did he have the ghetto LILT to his voice too?
Obama is really telling people to GET VIOLENT so the GOP voters are intimidated. THAT is his real message. He's setting the tone for it.
Imagine anyone encouraging the “white vote”. The press would drop everything to get that person lynched.
Bring it on. Maybe they will have the guts to ask him for his BC. ALL of TV support Obama, the Dems and Islam.
