Staggering losses in state house and gubernatorial elections and recently the race for the White House have left Democrats scrambling for answers.
The one they entrusted the last eight years to help them has turned out to be a self-serving, dismal failure. President Obama promised hope for Democrats while he worked to secure his personal legacy and left the party a liberal, burning mess.
Even those who praised and coddled the president and Democrats are forced to face the reality that Obama has decimated the party.
Pundits tackled Obama’s failures over the air this week with sharp words for the lame-duck president. From Fox News:
Huffington Post senior politics editor Sam Stein had some strong words Wednesday while discussing the legacy of Obama.
Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Stein said Obama has overseen the “destruction” of the Democratic Party.
Watch it here:
Stein said Obama’s leadership was a failure, one that cost Democrats the presidency and leaves the party floundering throughout the country.
He leaves them in a much worse position. The states are decimated, they’ve lost control of the House and Senate. The governorships are decimated.
“He did win the election twice by substantial margins, but, you know, his legacy as a politician is a bit muddied by all that,” Stein said.
It’s surprising that liberals are openly admitting that Obama, not all the excuses, is key to why Democrats are in such bad shape. People don’t want his liberal, no-jobs, globalize the US policies.
His legacy is that of a destructive, divisive, self-serving politician who leaves everyone behind to struggle on their own.
