Confidence or arrogance? Obama says he could've beaten Trump. President Obama claims he could have won a third term if he had been allowed to run but even if he's right, his coattails havent done much for the rest of his party. While Obamas 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 havent translated down the ballot.
The Democratic Party suffered huge losses at every level... The grand total: a net loss of 1,042 state and federal Democratic posts, including congressional and state legislative seats, governorships and the presidency.... Hillary Clinton, ... brought the first family out for numerous campaign appearances.... Obama declared that his legacys on the ballot. Less than two months later, Americans voted for Donald Trump.
... Democratic U.S. Senate seats fell from 55 to 46. Their share of the House plummeted from 256 seats to 194. Republicans still control both chambers going into the next session. Democratic governerships also became a rarity during this eight-year period, slipping from 28 to 16....
The Obama years, which saw the rise...of a new movement form around Trump ... coincided with a loss of 958 state legislative seats for Democrats. Still, Obama said in an interview which aired Monday that, if he were allowed to run for a third term, he would have been victorious....

Hillary's campaign cost $1.2 Billion and she has nothing to show for it. Imagine what she would have cost tax payers if she had won and how the 'pay for play' schemes of the Clinton Global Initiative would have come to fruition.
B.O.’s greatest accomplishments.
a net loss of 1,042 state and federal Democratic posts,
Were on a Roll!! I wonder if they are making odds in vegas on this??
“Obama declared that his legacys on the ballot. Less than two months later, Americans voted for Donald Trump.”
SO MUCH FOR THE LEGACY OBAMA...
Democrats lost over 1,000 seats under Obama...
They can go to IKEA. They’re cheap.
...I should get kicked off the board for comments like that. :)
2016, Dems did good at the federal level.
a net pickup of six positions
It’s Russia’s fault.
Obama’s legacy was rejected 100%.
All his plans for America flushed.
He’s done such a great job screwing over Democrats, you’d almost think he was a Republican plant, if he weren’t in fact the ‘Manchurian candidate’.
Obama was not supposed to be in the position he occupies and the damage he’s done is massive. Is it irreversible? Oddly enough, we can only hope and wasn’t that the moniker of his very own campaign? Hope!
America needs hope now like they’ve never needed it before, thanks in large part to the blunders and damage caused by the most inexperienced and ill informed President to ever occupy the post and the free world has been without a leader for 8 years due to Obama’s incompetence. In the meantime, mad men like Putin have stepped in to fill the void he left in his wake.
Trump must re-establish the United States as the leader of freedom and democracy.
[a net loss of 1,042 state and federal Democratic posts,]
Good; excellent. The lying Democrats should feel the heat for lying for the liar Obama all these years.
They worshiped him, they adored him, they made excuses for him at every turn.
Now, enjoy the Obama economy you built with your fraud.
Too harsh? Reality bites, especially the one your guy built.
I wonder how many thousands of democrats (men and women) are going to be kicked out of their govt. offices on Jan 20th. I take delight in all of these slimy liberals quickly lining up to get food stamps to feed themselves and their little monsters. (perhaps the men can get hired on as garbage collectors and the women liberals working as escorts. roflmao)
I hope their loss will be permanent.
Amen. Their loss must last forever.
“Obama and Kerry working hard to lose Jewish voters!”
Bill Clinton working hard to kill off the Cracker voters!
start checking democrats home closets. /s
Which partly explains the extent of the Democrat losses. She vacuumed up all the money, leaving nothing for the down ballot candidates to run with.
....Obama declared that his legacys on the ballot...
Conveniently forgotten by Obama. Conveniently ignored by the Democrat tail wagging, slobbering, worshipful lackey media.
