Sam Stein: Obama Oversaw The Destruction Of The Democratic Party


Huffington Post senior politics editor Sam Stein made the case that President Obama oversaw the "destruction" of the Democratic Party on Wednesday's edition of 'Morning Joe' on MSNBC.

SAM STEIN, HUFFINGTON POST: 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? He leaves them in a much worse position. He -- the states are decimated, they've lost control of the House and Senate. The Governorships are decimated. So, yeah, maybe he -- he is obviously a gifted candidate. He didn't won -- he didn't won election twice by substantial margins, but, you know, his legacy as a politician is a bit muddied by all that.
