Obama to Court African-Americans for Clinton Concern that key voting block is not turning out prompts president to return to the stump.
President Barack Obama plans to spend the rest of this week campaigning for Hillary Clinton, aiming to generate massive turnout among fellow Democrats and especially among African-Americans whose enthusiasm for Clinton seems to be lagging.
Obama campaigned for Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, in Ohio Tuesday, and he plans to stump for her in North Carolina Wednesday and Florida Thursday. All of these are important battleground states where the race between Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump is close, according to most polls. White House aides say Obama will campaign for Clinton Friday but the details haven't been announced.
Clinton strategists express hope that Obama, the first African-American president, will be particularly helpful in motivating black voters to show up at the polls for Clinton in Tuesday's general election.
It must be the "BHO Final Goodbye Tour!"
It's Barrack's last hurrah in front of an adoring crowd.
Blacks will pack in at his lovefest and not necessarily bother to vote.
Black voters will show up to see him.
Doesn’t mean they love Hillary.
And there are limits to what even Barry can do on her behalf.
“Obama to Court African-Americans for Clinton”
This should be good (Obama + ebonics = hilarity).
He’s BEEN campaigning on her behalf for a WHILE now.
Why would the last few days of the election have any impact if ALL the other ones didn’t.
It should be illegal for his airplane fuel to be paid for by U.S. taxpayers. He is doing this on OUR dime and should be at work trying to figure out a plan to mitigate his stupid Obamacare disaster as the premiums for his failed healthcare plan skyrocket.
Seriously, this ought to be against the law if we are paying for the transportation. Let him pay for travel himself.
Any man of normal character would be so embarrassed by his abysmal performance over the last 8 years he would hide his head in shame.
Yet this narcissist has the nerve to look blacks in the eye and give them another load of BS.
Anything to get his mind off throwing us into WWIII.
Trump supporters need to surround his rallies, with many signs about Hillary’s past misdeeds and lies and racism.
Supposedly when the president travels for strictly political purposes, the Democrat party pays for his travels.
We taxpayers still pay for secret service and security arrangements, but the party is supposed to reimburse the government for political travel.
Whether that actually happens is questionable, but legally that is what is supposed to happen.
Quit whining, now. These are cheap trips.
You pay for him to golf & surf all over the world.
You pay for Mooch and her entourage to globe-trot.
“What difference does it make!”
(.. along with lacking any other redeeming feature)
I think this is obama’s hail-allah pass to get hitlery in, and keep his ass out of jail.
Isn’t it good to know the job of President allows for so much free time to campaign and golf
Obama: “Slaves, get back on the plantation! Freedom? Who needs it? That’s not who we are as a nation!”
How nice: Hussein acting as Hitlery’s overseer, whippin’ those darkies back into line.
I’m not sure black voters will show up to see Obama. Trump has made a point about how the democrats only want anything to do with them every four years. Lots of blacks are starting to see that Obama is the typical democrat politician and electing him got them absolutely nothing.
At least he’s not meddling - Blacks aren’t interested in Hillary....period.
“...Democratic party pays for his travels...’
Thanks for the info. He is wasting the taxpayers time (of course he has for 8 years but this is repugnant).
Gotta get cousin Pookie to the polls...
