Democratic Faithful Walk Out in Middle of Obama Speech

By Robert Paul Reyes

"President Barack Obama made a rare appearance on the campaign trail on Sunday with a rally to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, but early departures of crowd members while he spoke underscored his continuing unpopularity.


With approval levels hovering around record lows, Obama has spent most of his campaign-related efforts this year raising money for struggling Democrats, who risk losing control of the U.S. Senate in the Nov. 4 midterm election."


How the mighty have fallen: Yesterday Barack Obama was a messiah and a rock star; today he is a political hack and a pariah.

Yesterday we equated the words " hope and change" with Obama, today his name conjures up Ebola and ISIS.

The candidates running in the midterm elections are treating their fearless leader as if he were infected with Ebola, they have made it clear that they don`t want him campaigning on their behalf.

Kentucky Democrat and U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes refuses to say if she voted for Obama, she`s like a middle school student who is ashamed to admit that she listens to Barry Manilow.

At a rally to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, people streamed out of the auditorium in the middle of Obama`s speech.

Can you say " buyer`s remorse"? Can you say "dashed hopes and unwelcome change"?
