Obama Compares Republican Politicians to 'Grumpy Cat'

The White House plans to aggressively deploy President Barack Obama to rally Democrats to the polls for the 2016 election, particularly minority and young voters who are his strongest supporters.

His campaign work could be the difference between Democrats holding or losing the White House in 2016. With the broader electorate closely divided, either Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton or her main challenger, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, will need any extra margin those voters can provide, particularly in crucial battlegrounds such as Ohio, Virginia and Florida.
