Obama: Being Uninformed And Not Caring About Politics Is No ‘Excuse’ Not to Vote

Former President Obama released a video Wednesday saying that being “uninformed” and not “car[ing] about politics” should not be an “excuse” for not voting.

From Axios:

Obama named seven excuses he didn’t want to hear from voters: “I don’t care about politics”; “I can’t relate to the candidates”; “My vote doesn’t matter”; “Midterms are boring”; “I am uninformed”; “I don’t know where I’m supposed to vote”; “I don’t have time to vote.”

Translation: it doesn’t matter if you’re a complete ignoramus who knows nothing about politics, just get out and vote for Democrats.

No one can say he doesn’t know his target market!

Michelle Obama said similar in a speech last month, saying people who “know nothing about nothing” like she did when she was 18 should still vote.

“Voting does not require any kind of special expertise,” Obama told the crowd. “You know, you don’t need to be have some fancy degree to be qualified to vote. You don’t have to read every news article to be qualified to vote.”

“Don’t be intimidated, don’t let somebody intimidate you from being a part of this process,” Obama said.

“I’ve been voting since I was 18 years old — and trust me I didn’t know nothing about nothing at 18 years old — right?” she said, throwing her hands up.

Comedian Daniel Tosh, on the other hand, had a slightly different take:

If you’re Republican, you need to make sure everyone you know is voting in this election to keep the movie Idiocracy from becoming our reality.
