During a recent Democratic National Committee fundraiser in California, Obama warned Democrats that they are at serious risk of losing to Republicans during the midterm elections because they don’t have someone like him to inspire them anymore.
“Do not wait for the perfect message, don’t wait to feel a tingle in your spine because you’re expecting politicians to be so inspiring and poetic and moving that somehow, ‘OK, I’ll get off my couch after all and go spend the 15-20 minutes it takes for me to vote.’ Because that’s part of what happened in the last election. I heard that too much,” said Obama.
“I’ll be honest with you, if I have a regret during my presidency, it is that people were so focused on me and the battles we were having, particularly after we lost the House, that folks stopped paying attention up and down the ballot,” said Obama.
He went on to lecture about the power of fear. He demonized Republicans by claiming they try to make their voters fearful. And he says this all while trying to make Democrats fear Republicans.
“Fear is powerful. Telling people that somebody’s out to get you, or somebody took your job, or somebody has it out for you, or is going to change you, or your community, or your way of life — that’s an old story and it has shown itself to be powerful in societies all around the world. It is a deliberate, systematic effort to tap into that part of our brain that carries fear in it,” said Obama.
