The Democrats  have finally rolled out their big gun, ex-President Obama, clearly hoping to  counteract President Trump’s  influence on right leaning voters.

Frankly, that may not be as advantageous as they hope.

Mr. Obama’s two speeches to date may only serve to remind 2016 Trump voters why they voted for the sitting President.

The familiar neck-extended, down-his-nose-looking speech delivery, combined with his disparaging and anti-conservative  attitude is all too familiar.

Number 44 never bothered to hide his disdain for half the people of the country, and he still doesn’t, saying “The politics of division and resentment and paranoia has unfortunately found a home in the Republican Party.”

This from a man who went tribal almost from the first day of his first term, often injecting racial and class intolerance into events of the time.

Then there is his claim that all of the current economic growth is due to hm.

True enough, things did get marginally better during his presidency. Still, there was always the feeling that he didn’t want things to get too good, as though he was doing just enough to keep the country limping along. It sort of felt like watching someone driving with his foot on the brake.

Having said all that, really who else can the Democrats trot out?  It’s either Barack Obama or the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes.

With less than 60 days to go, voters can now reflect on which philosophies have produced the most growth and prosperity over the past two years.

Maybe having the original Obama on stage again is a good thing for both sides.
