President Obama ripped Democratic voters even as he set off to beg them to save his Congress in November.
“People need to shake off this lethargy. People need to buck up,” Obama told Rolling Stone magazine in an interview published online Wednesday.
“It is inexcusable for any Democrat or progressive right now to stand on the sidelines in this midterm election,” Obama said.
Excerpts from the interview came out as Obama embarked on a four-state campaign swing to campuses and backyards aimed at relighting the progressive fires under young voters who helped propel him to the Oval Office.
