Obama failures have officially led the Democrat party into the proverbial dumpster. According to straight statistics, since Obama took office 8 years ago, Democrats have lost over 1000 federal seats. Liberals have been up in arms about the GOP and Trump, saying that America hates them and us.
Well I think that a 1000+ position swing proves otherwise. Next time you hear someone saying that America hates Republicans, show them this and prove them dead wrong.
While Obama’s tireless campaigning, broad demographic appeal and message of “hope” and “change” helped propel him to two terms in the White House, his skills on the stump haven’t translated down the ballot.
The Democratic Party suffered huge losses at every level during Obama’s West Wing tenure. The grand total: a net loss of 1,042 state and federal Democratic posts, including congressional and state legislative seats, governorships and the presidency. The latter was perhaps the most profound example of Obama’s popularity failing to translate to support for his allies. Hillary Clinton, who served as secretary of state under Obama, brought the first family out for numerous campaign appearances. In September, Obama declared that his “legacy’s on the ballot.”
Less than two months later, Americans voted for Donald Trump. America has spoken. We no longer wand your “hope” and change.” We see through the lie. It’s going to go down in history as “division” and “failure.”
