Opinion: Barrack Obama, like a bad case of herpes, is once agin inserting himself into DC’s political swamp – a swamp he helped fortify during his presidency. This fund-raiser for ‘redistricting’ is all about creating special election districts for the ignorant, under-educated entitlement parasites who thrive under democrat rule – parasites who without democrats plundering the treasury, would be forced to work and contribute to our republic….WFM
Obama returns to politics with redistricting group fundraiser
Barack Obama will make the first official political move of his post-presidency on Thursday, headlining a private fundraiser for the National Democratic Redistricting Committee at a private home in Washington.
The event, which will also be attended by NDRC chair Eric Holder and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, is to support the group he’s helping back to coordinate Democratic efforts in state races and lawsuits to push back on Republican success
in gerrymandering over many cycles. In many statehouses and Congress, that’s left Democrats at a baked-in disadvantage.
Obama oversaw massive losses for his party in state legislatures and in the House during his presidency, but has said tackling redistricting is a major political priority after leaving the White House. So far since he walked out of the Oval Office in January, he’s been circumspect in his political involvement—and aside from releasing several statements in defense of Obamacare, he’s kept his political activity to making calls to Democratic National Committee members in support of Tom Perez’s chair bid and throwing a steady stream of subtle digs at President Donald Trump in paid and public speeches.
