The democrats suffered massive loses after the 2016 election.
Republicans and conservatism aim to undo decades of toxic policies. Under President Trump, radical liberal politics will have no place in American government.
So the liberals are desperate. So much so, they are pulling Obama out of retirement in one showstopping move.
From Washington Post:
Former president Barack Obama will formally reenter the political fray this week less than six months after leaving office, headlining a fundraiser for a group that could prove critical to the Democratic Party’s rebuilding efforts.
Obama’s appearance Thursday before a few dozen people at a closed-door event in the District on behalf of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC) highlights the balance he is trying to strike as his party seeks to regain its footing at both the state and national levels…
Perez said in an interview Sunday that while some Democrats have urged Obama recently, “You’ve got to get out front on issue X or issue Y,” the former president wants instead to “build the bench” for the party.
Democrats suffered a greater loss of power during Obama’s tenure than under any other two-term president since World War II.
Not a very long time off for old Barry. Only six months out of office and he has to come back to clean up their mess.
Considering this was a mess he made, I guess it makes sense. His radical, toxic policy ruined America. His poor leadership turned a once respected party into a den of bullies and babies.
Although this also shows what bad shape his party is in that they need him only months later. It was as if all his partying and hobnobbing with billionaires was a quick vacation before he got back to work.

But the truth is there is little Obama can do to right the ship. He had eight years to do good. What can he do now, outside of public office, with no executive power? All he can do is lend a little bit of his fading star power to raise some cash.
But as we’ve seen in the election and recent special elections, cash ain’t enough.
