    Obama makes rare campaign trail appearance, people leave early

    BY JEFF MASON
    UPPER MARLBORO Md. Sun Oct 19, 2014 6:22pm EDT

    (Reuters) - 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.

    So it appears that Obama is so unpopular that even in states where dems are ahead people leave early when Obama appears. No wonder dems are jumping ship.

    They can read a teleprompter "I....I.....I....I and Republicans are bad." What else does he ever say?

    Did they wear the same thing? It looks like they made a small clone of him.

    Obama made his appearance in a blue state with a candidate sporting a hefty lead. He can't do much damage. Maryland is the Massachusetts of the mid-Atlantic states. By the time the left is done with it, Maryland will have extraordinarily high taxes and nobody left but the too poor to leave, and the affluent left. Everybody else will have long since left the place.

    I thought my eyes must have been crossed when I first saw the picture. Looks like a mini-me.

    Maryland is a safe Democratic state, one of the bluest. No big deal. As for the senate, it is far from a done deal. The Republicans could very easily lose Kansas and Georgia and their expected pickup in North Carolina is not going to happen. The odds are slightly in the GOP's favor, but one miss step could have it all come tumbling down. Remember Aiken and Mourdock from 2012, they turned sure Republicans gains into loses.

    As Yogi Berra said, "It ain't over until its over."
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    It looks like the genes were spliced with OJ Simpson.
