More than at any time in memory, the United States faces a choice this fall between unpopular presidential candidates. Most voters view Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump with disdain.

Yet one popular politician looms over the contest. That’s President Obama, who this spring has seen his approval rating again creep past 50 percent. For Democrats hoping to hold the White House, that has come at just the right time.

NYT thinks Obama is popular and will help Clinton.

Clinton can run on Obama's record all she wants. It won't help.

The propaganda is getting thick. I’m going to self-impose a media blackout pretty soon. This is getting unbearable.

Obama was Hillary’s boss while using her server and peddling infuence. The smartest man in the world claims he knew nothing?

Don't confuse liberal white guilt for political commitment.

Liberals just want the Obama presidency to end and go away quietly. I think even they give it a C-minus. After the affirmative action legacy grading curve, that's a B+. When it comes to enthusiasm to vote, it's still a C-.

In a world of reality, the only way BO'B could be riding high is if he'd just overindulged in a snort, or a few extra puffs.

They moved heaven and earth to prop up the Apex Token and he repaid them by ignoring them, mocking them and holding them in contempt.

Still, they can't give up their once-in-a-lifetime chance to virtue signal so he's still excused.

Among Dem politicos, Obama has committed the most serious offense: he hogs the spotlight. This is why they have all but forgotten about him.
