8 years of "The Greatest Most Popular President EVAH! left the DNC in lousy shape.

You would think that if Obama was as popular and successful a President as we keep being told he was, the Democrats would be in great shape all the way around. Instead, the Dems lost over a thousand elected positions during his time, and the DNC went broke.

An excerpt from Donna Brazile's book as released to Politico: https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/11/02/clinton-brazile-hacks-2016-215774

"So I followed the money. My predecessor, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, had not been the most active chair in fundraising at a time when President Barack Obama’s neglect had left the party in significant debt. As Hillary’s campaign gained momentum, she resolved the party’s debt and put it on a starvation diet. It had become dependent on her campaign for survival, for which she expected to wield control of its operations.

The Saturday morning after the convention in July, I called Gary Gensler, the chief financial officer of Hillary’s campaign. He wasted no words. He told me the Democratic Party was broke and $2 million in debt.

“What?” I screamed. “I am an officer of the party and they’ve been telling us everything is fine and they were raising money with no problems.”

That wasn’t true, he said. Officials from Hillary’s campaign had taken a look at the DNC’s books. Obama left the party $24 million in debt—$15 million in bank debt and more than $8 million owed to vendors after the 2012 campaign—and had been paying that off very slowly. Obama’s campaign was not scheduled to pay it off until 2016. Hillary for America (the campaign) and the Hillary Victory Fund (its joint fundraising vehicle with the DNC) had taken care of 80 percent of the remaining debt in 2016, about $10 million, and had placed the party on an allowance."

So essentially, the Democratic Party was in such crappy shape that Hillary essentially came in and bought it. There wasn't any collusion between the Party and Hillary's campaign, they were the same entity at the top.

3. Not surprised

We saw it from the time when Obama was in the Illinois State legislature.

Don't know about other cities, but here a "Community Organizer" is usually a failed lawyer or gang banger (look up Gator Bradley) that wants in on the take and hustles votes for the Aldermen and other Dems running for office. In return they get patronage jobs to hand out, like leaning on a shovel for $75,000 a year in Streets & Sanitation or 3rd man on a city garbage truck, plus a pension and full healthcare.

He was always all about him and nobody but him.

Never a team player, he did the least amount of work he could get away with, voted "present" most of the time rather than study an issue and take a position.

Always style over substance and he followed the unofficial Chicago Democrat Motto; "Where's Mine?"

No one should be surprised that he pocketed all the "campaign" donation that came in and wouldn't share with the other kids. Now his "Presidential Library" is going to bulldoze one of the few decent parks (Jackson Park) and public golf courses on the South Side.

The residents, all African Americans that supported him, are complaining about losing their park space for the kids to his glorified Library parking lots. He just doesn't give a shit if it's not about him, or what the water buffalo tells him to do.

4. Brazile practically called Obama a "lazy N word " yesterday

She said he was ' negligent "

Obama drained all the money out of the DNC and then abandoned them.
