Obama Warns Georgia Voters if Republicans Control the Senate They ‘Can Block Just About Anything’

Former President Barack Obama (D) is reminding voters to get out and participate in the Georgia runoff elections that will determine the Senate majority.

During a virtual get out the vote rally for Georgia Senate candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, Obama stressed the Senate still matters even with President-elect Joe Biden in the White House.

“The Senate is a place where even with a big majority, it’s tough to get legislation through, and if you don’t have a majority, if the Senate is controlled by Republicans who are interested in obstruction and gridlock rather than progress and helping people, they can block just about anything,” Obama said.

He mentioned while he was in the White House, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) made it more difficult for him to get things done.

“Once McConnell was controlling that gavel and controlling the agenda in the Senate, we saw a lot of progress halt,” Obama said.

Watch the video below:

Obama noted while he was president some of his supporters did not show up to vote during midterm elections and Democrats ultimately lost majorities in the House and Senate.

“The promise of the Biden presidency and the Harris vice presidency rests in part on their ability to have a cooperative posture with Congress,” Obama added.

President Donald Trump urged his supporters to vote in Georgia’s runoff elections after they considered boycotting them, as IJR previously reported.

“No, the 2020 Election was a total scam, we won by a lot (and will hopefully turn over the fraudulent result), but we must get out and help David and Kelly, two GREAT people. Otherwise we are playing right into the hands of some very sick people. I will be in Georgia on Saturday!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Trump’s eldest son Donald Trump Jr. criticized those who were telling voters not to support the Georgia Republicans.

“I’m seeing a lot of talk from people that are supposed to be on our side telling GOP voters not to go out and vote for [Kelly Loeffler] and [David Perdue]. That is NONSENSE. IGNORE those people. We need ALL of our people coming out to vote for Kelly and David,” he tweeted.

Trump’s allegations of widespread voter fraud are unsubstantiated.

  1. Why is this a$$hole even on tv? He had his day for eight years. Obama aka the former potus that wouldnt shutup.

  2. He doesn’t own nor has he ever lived in the mansion you’re speaking of Cherl. It’s another internet fake news piece.

  3. “First president to never fade into a private life” Sharal

    Come on, Sharal. Do you really, REALLY think that King Donald The Loser is going to be a Shrinking Violet starting in January? You can’t honestly believe that.

    Jimmy Carter has his hobby. Bill Clinton did his tours and books. Bush 2 has his paints, Obama kept quiet until Joke Biden decided to run and even then tried to talk him out of it and wouldn’t endorse him until it became silly not to.

    His Majesty is already thinking (HA!) of starting an on-line career and you can bet that he will have at least one or two books written FOR him. I would NOT be surprised, either, if Stephen Miller writes a manifesto for him.

    If His Majesty decides to run again before his royal cholesterol kills him, do you honestly think that he will be quiet doing it?

  4. That’s why we must win the two republican senate seats in Georgia . Screw odumbo !!!

  5. So Obama the brain trust gets it. Yes that’s the point. First president to never fade into a private life in his multi million dollars mansions.

  6. Linda the bigot has children. Hopefully they will not turn out like that ugly hearted excuse for a human!!

  7. I noticed that you have a cross on your profile Robbie Boy. I’m pretty sure Jesus wouldn’t lie, steal and commit adultery and put children in pens for years, crying for their parents. But they are not white children so that’s okay right?? You do know Jesus was a brown skinned, Jewish man right?? Hypocrite and you WILL be judged at the pearly gates.

  8. Oh, not a scintilla of evidence of any impropriety in my administration Obama…..just go away. It is my dying wish.

  9. “No, what Georgia voters (real ones not lying cheats) would be doing is protecting the nation against the leftist radical socialist agenda.” John Edwards

    I am confused, 68 year old Rob.

    What “leftist radical socialist agenda” are you talking about. I haven’t seen any evidence of one, and Joke Biden can in no way be honestly accused of being socialist, so WTF are you talking about?

    “Also we are trying to keep this country on the right track.” Rob

    And what track would THAT be, Rob? Judging by what you post on IJR, you are on the wrong track.

    “Many of us remember the Obama travesty of insurance, his failed economy, his inexperience and ineptness as a leader.” Rob

    What? Failed economy? Do I have to remind you that he pulled this country out of a HUGE economic mess handed to him by ANOTHER Republican president? Do I? We wouldn’t have a health care insurance travesty if the corrupt Republican Congress didn’t make sure that we never got something better, not even something better around the edges.

    “Vote Loeffler and Perdue for senate!” Rob

    No, please don’t vote for corrupt Congress members who willingly flaunt our laws and participate in insider trading.

    Come on, Rob. You are definitely on the wrong side of the issues that you post about here. Linda is just racist. You need to think more clearly.

  10. Dear Buckwheat,
    You are no longer relevant!
    Have forgotten that you are no longer a president? Just
    go away and stay gone!

  11. No, what Georgia voters (real ones not lying cheats) would be doing is protecting the nation against the leftist radical socialist agenda. Also we are trying to keep this country on the right track. Many of us remember the Obama travesty of insurance, his failed economy, his inexperience and ineptness as a leader. Folks the Biden administration will be the exact footprint as his former boss and in many cases even worse. We have to STOP this band of evildoers and keep their wicked agenda static. Vote Loeffler and Perdue for senate! <
