Obama, stressing the need for the Dem Senate, says he has “been most successful since Lyndon” in his first two years in office.


President Obama joined Georgian Democrats Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock in a virtual rally on Friday, stressing the need for democratic scrutiny of the Senate.

“My first two years have been the most productive since Lyndon Johnson,” Obama said. “After Mitch McConnell checked this gavel and managed the Senate agenda, we saw a lot of progress stop.”

In 2008, Obama won the presidency, and Democrats increased their majority in the House and Senate. But in 2010, Republicans occupied 63 seats in the house, taking control of the chamber.

“The Senate really matters. When we got to the middle stages, it got even worse, a lot of people stopped voting, ”the former president explained.

Obama called Georgia “the center of our civilian universe because Georgia’s special elections will ultimately determine the course of the Biden presidency and whether Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are able to legally fulfill all their commitments.

Obama then hit Republicans in office, David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.

“In one of the biggest public health crises, we know, they were primarily worried about their stock portfolio.” Ossoff agreed, and Loeffler and Perdue were called “Bonnie and Clyde, America’s political corruption”.

Perdue and Loeffler were all set on fire for stock trading on their behalf after senators received coronavirus information at a closed-door Senate briefing. According to Perdue’s campaign, the senator did not attend the briefing and the transactions were carried out by a third-party consultant. Loeffler also said he was not part of the trade. Both were clarified by federal investigations.

According to Obama, Republican senators “have drawn the line of a president who responds to a pandemic, even though my administration has given them a game book on how to deal with the epidemic”.

Meanwhile, he said Ossoff and Warnock will be able to work with “slightly more independent” Republicans.

He continued, “Jon and Raphael are big tents, accommodating people who can talk through the hallway.”

The power of the next Senate in last month’s elections was 50 Republicans and 48 Democrats. This means Democrats must win both Georgian national teams to become 50-50-50 senates. If that happens, the elected vice president, Kamala Harris, will have a tie vote.

In Georgia, where state law requires a vote if no candidate reaches 50% of the vote, David Perdue, the GOP Senate, barely missed the avoidance and won 49.75% of the vote in the November election. . Jon Ossoff, the Democratic Challenger, fell short by roughly 87,000 votes.

Ossoff and Warnock also predicted that a vote on Friday would lead to youth participation. Warnock has called for registration for those celebrating their 18th birthday between the November and January elections. According to Ossoff’s campaign, that could result in 23,000 teenager votes.
