Obama accused of sucking the Democratic Party dry and it only gets worse from there:New book claims Obama was a ‘parasite’ who sucked the Democratic Party dry to get reelected
‘Obama never built a Democratic bench and never cared to.’
In a chapter entitled “Benign Neglect,” Dovere writes that the section’s namesake is how Obama aides privately described his abandonment of the Democratic Party once in the White House. “‘Negligence’ might be more accurate,” Dovere, writer for The Atlantic and former chief Washington correspondent for Politico, writes. “The numbers are hard to ignore: during his eight years in office, Obama oversaw a net loss of 947 state legislative seats, 63 House seats, 11 senators, and 13 governors,” he continues.
