"If we don't step up, things can get worse", the former president told the audience at the Anaheim Convention Center.

And the other comments Obama made at a Democratic rally in California didn't appear to impress Pirro either.

Speaking to a largely young audience at the University of IL at Urbana-Champaign, Obama urged them to vote if they wanted to make a difference - "In two months we have the chance, not the certainty but the chance, to restore some semblance of sanity to our politics". "You have the power to make sure we seize a brighter future. but to execute that power you have to show up".

In a speech at the University of IL at Urbana-Champaign, Mr Obama said Americans were living in "dangerous times", urging Democrats to vote in November midterm elections to restore "honesty and decency and lawfulness" to government.

Since the speech was in the middle of a workday, it prompted many on social media to ask why the president was snoozing to Obama when he should have been serving the American people.

"The biggest threat to our democracy is indifference", he said. Trump has given Obama a chance to write a new postscript to his own legacy.

There are now 237 seats held by Republicans in the House of Representatives and 193 held by Democrats.

The former president is expected to be a fixture on the campaign trail this fall, notes CBS News.

'It shouldn't be Democratic or Republican to say we don't target groups of people on how they look like. It could very well, as some Democrats acknowledge, energize Republican and conservative voters, of which there are many in this part of the state, who have long opposed Mr. Obama. And who say to themselves. Obama was "a lot lower key than yesterday's speech".

"You happen to be coming of age", Obama told students at the University of IL at Urbana Champaign.

His overarching message in both speeches, however, was the complaining does nothing when people don't vote. "President Trump opens the jar, and he said, I loosened it for you", said Mr. McCarthy on Fox Business Network's "Sunday Morning Futures". "And if you thought elections don't matter, I hope these last two years have corrected the impression".

Obama's office announced his first round of endorsements earlier this year and the official said his second round will be released in coming weeks.

"I'm glad it's continued, but when you hear about this economic miracle that's been going on, when the job numbers come out, monthly job numbers, and, suddenly, Republicans are saying, 'it's a miracle.' I have to kind of remind them, actually, those job numbers are the same as they were in 2015 and 2016", the former president said.
