In the case of Barack Obama, four years after his tour in the Oval Office concluded, author and journalist Edward Isaac Dovere is using those exact terms to describe the forty-fourth person to lead the United States.
A “parasite” on the Democratic Party is how journalist Edward Isaac Dovere describes former President Obama in his forthcoming tell-all book “Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats Campaign to Defeat Trump.”
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.
The severe hemorrhaging of Democrat control and influence in the Obama years is one of the least reported stories of the two terms. Despite having control of Congress at the beginning of his tenure, Obama led the loss of control of the nation for what turned out to be almost a decade.
Obama also neglected to fill the seats of hundreds of federal judges in his time, and President Donald Trump systematically filled them so that the federal bench is now loaded with constitutionally minded men and women rather than Democrat hacks who rewrite American law according to their whims.
“Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats’ Campaign to Defeat Trump“ should be an interesting read as a Democrat takes apart one of their own.
