10 attacks Obama unleashed on Trump, GOP in midterm speech

"If you don't like what's going on right now, and you shouldn't - do not - complain", Obama said. "Suddenly, deficits don't matter, even though just two years ago, when the deficit was lower, they said, 'I couldn't help working families or seniors because it was, the deficit was, in existential crisis".

"It should not be a partisan issue to say that we do not pressure the attorney general or the Federal Bureau of Investigation to use the criminal justice system as a cudgel to punish our political opponents, or to explicitly call on the attorney general to protect members of our own party from prosecution because an election happens to be coming up", he said. Wilson tweeted, "I see Obama is trying to make Grandpa Ranty angry".

He will spend this Saturday in California stumping for seven congressional candidates at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee event and will head to OH next week to campaign for gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray.

Historically, midterms are lightly attended and Obama made a point of reminding his audience that only one in five young people voted in the 2014 midterm election.

His comments came during a speech at the University of IL at Urbana-Champaign, where he accepted an ethics in government award.

"Democrats need all hands on deck to take back the House, and we could not be more honored to have President Barack Obama's inspirational voice and unifying message on the campaign trail, with his first stop in Southern California", Rep.

Obama is re-entering the public eye two months before voters head to the polls for the midterm elections on November 6.
