Republicans should not be wary of former President Barack Obama campaigning openly for the Democrats in the midterm elections, but should “take him head-on,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said on Fox News's “Ingraham Angle.”

“This is the guy who told us, you get to keep your doctor, you get to keep your health insurance. This is the guy who said there was a red line in Syria, and exactly one year later, said he’d never said there was a red line in Syria," Gingrich said.

“Barack Obama is a left-winger who has spent his entire career denying reality. One simple example, we lost 200,000 manufacturing jobs under Obama. We’ve already gained over 400,000 under Trump.

"I like that choice. I think you want to go back to Obama - higher unemployment, fewer jobs, more food stamps - let’s have that debate. But we need to have the courage to take head-on the real Obama, not The New York Times fantasy version.”

Gingrich said this should be part of the strategy of arguing the issues and clarifying as clearly as possible the stark contrast between the two parties on a wide range of subjects.

He said that the base and those who care about President Donald Trump’s agenda have to come out to vote or the Republicans lose, but at the same time there are issues that can actually win this election and broaden the GOP base.
