Slowik: Obama’s return sure to fire up voters from both political parties

People are generally reacting to former President Barack Obama’s return to the political stage in one of two ways.

Some welcome the return of Obama because he tends to excite audiences with motivational remarks. Some are as enthusiastic as Bears fans during the first half of Sunday’s game in Green Bay.

“We are Americans,” Obama said Friday during a speech at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. “We’re supposed to stand up to bullies — not follow them.

“We’re supposed to stand up to discrimination, and we’re sure as heck supposed to stand up clearly and unequivocally to Nazi sympathizers. How hard can that be? Saying that Nazis are bad?”
