12-30-16-apd52016 was arguably one of the worst years for the Democratic Party in modern history.

Between their disastrous Presidential campaigns and choice of Hillary Clinton as their candidate, to losing their footing with the election of Trump and a Republican majority in the Senate, 2016 has left the Democratic Party scrambling to get back on their feet.

Some are even claiming that 2016 is leading to the “death” of the Democratic Party altogether.

The Daily Caller reports:

Huffington Post senior politics editor Sam Stein said on Wednesday’s broadcast of “Morning Joe” that President Obama is responsible for the death of the Democratic party.

President Barack Obama is receiving the majority of the blame for the destruction of the left. Between his failed political projects and his general inactiveness in executive policy which was supposed to be beneficial for the country, he simply fell very short of expectations.

Not only did the Democratic Party lose control of the senate in recent years, but governorships of states were largely Republican as well.

Sam Stein claimed that the Democratic political landscape was decimated under Obama.

The Daily Caller reports:

“He leaves them in a much worse position,” he continued. “The states are decimated. they lost control of the House and Senate. The governorships are decimated.”

Furthermore, Stein went on to argue that Hillary Clinton’s loss was not due to electoral votes; rather the loss was caused by Obama’s lack of contribution to the Democratic Party over the eight years he was President.

The Daily Caller reports:

“It was 80,000 votes in three states that really cost her, but then on the other hand you look at the destruction of the Democratic Party under Barack Obama’s leadership and you have to wonder, you know, what was the political — what were the electoral benefits that he gave to the party?”

Overall, Obama has much to answer for.

America was certainly challenged under his two terms as President.

Not only did the national debt increase by almost $8 trillion dollars, but hundreds of thousands of potentially dangerous refugees and immigrants were encouraged to cross our borders by Obama.

For the first time since September 11th, 2001, major terrorist attacks occurred on American soil, with Obama to be held responsible as they were conducted by Islamic refugees with ties to the horrific Islamic State. The Orlando Nightclub attack alone left 49 dead, and many more injured.

The Democratic Party tried to salvage itself with the nomination of Hillary Clinton as their Presidential candidate in 2016, but her lack of political integrity and poor health conditions easily led to her defeat by Donald Trump.

Moreover, the American people are simply distraught with the corruption caused by and within the Democratic Party. Donald Trump ran on a campaign to “drain the swamp” in Washington DC, and many Democratic politicians will certainly have something to answer for after Trump is inaugurated.

What are your thoughts?

Do you believe Obama is to blame for the inevitable fall of the Democratic Party?

Or was it a group effort by many corrupt politicians who need to answer to the “Forgotten Man” whom they have forgotten to serve?
