New Book Sinks Obama, Calls Barack A ‘Parasite’ On Dem Party Who Thought He Could Beat Trump In 2016

Sharing is caring!

A new book that is shooting up the charts called Barack Obama a “parasite” on the Democratic Party. That is how Edward Isaac Dovere describes former President Obama in his new tell-all book about the Dems trying to take down Trump “Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats’ Campaign to Defeat Trump.”

In a chapter entitled “Benign Neglect,” Dovere writes about the shocking lack of leadership at the DNC under Obama where the Dems got their clocks cleaned in local election after local election. The final numbers do not lie according to Dovere: “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 wrote.

It gets worse for the hapless Dems. While The Dems are back in power nationally by a couple of votes, on the local level they lost big in redistricting which translates to more national power for the GOP.

Obama is the gift that keeps on giving for the GOP and then there is this stunner from the book – Obama thought he could have beat Trump in 2016.

“Ultimately Obama’s math comes down to a simple calculation: he has suggested in conversations with people close to him that he thinks he would have won had he been able to be a candidate in 2016. The economy, the Democratic debris, Russia – if he could have run for a third term, even confronted with all these issues, he believes, he would have figured out how to pull a victory off anyway,” Dovere wrote.

From Fox News:

“Obama never built a Democratic bench and never cared to, aside from a few scattered candidates who interested him,” according to the book. 

Dovere writes that “defenders” of Obama have argued he didn’t want to “taint” his presidency by ” mucking about in fundraising,” or that he didn’t want to spoil the image voters had of him as an independent politician, or that faced with the choice to campaign or govern, he would always choose govern. 

Dovere writes that during his first term, Obama used the party structure as a “host” for his next campaign. 

In 2009, Obama hired his friend Tim Kaine to head the DNC, even though Kaine was also serving as governor for the first year on the job.

In a scathing passage Dovere claims Kaine was at the time “commuting two days a week to oversee the pilfering of talent, money, resources, and purpose for the Obama reelection effort that was already under way.” 

“In his second term, he cared about what happened to the husk as much as any parasite does,” Dovere says.
