    Keith Ellison says Pres Obama "partly to blame" for Trumps win

    Deputy Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Rep. Keith Ellison is blaming former President Obama, in part, for some of the Democratic party’s losses in 2016.

    The Minnesota Democrat said that Obama “could have been a better party leader” at an event at the University of Minnesota on Wednesday. “The fact that he wasn’t has put his legacy in jeopardy,” Ellison said. Ellison, despite being “a great fan of President Obama” and voting for “many of the things he supported,” criticized Obama, saying that he should have paid closer attention to party politics and engaged more with Democratic leaders to help protect their positions in office, and thus protect his legacy.

    “His legacy is the work he’s done, which I believe is tremendous,” Ellison said. “But given we lost a lot of statehouse seats, governorships, secretary of states, his true legacy is in danger, and I think he can’t say that he wasn’t part of those losses. I mean, who else?” “He’s great at getting himself elected but should’ve worked much more closely with Congress, and I think in 2014 we had record low voter turnout,” Ellison said of Obama.

    His legacy will be that he created the backlash that put Trump in the White House.

    Obama was what he was...wishing for something different is moronic.

    I wish I was taller, kinder to animals, and took better care of my teeth.

    Obama campaigned hard for Hillary. He said numerous times his policies were on the ballot. America rejected his policies.

    Russia loved Obama's policy of letting them annex Crimea with no consequences. They loved how Obama let Russia buy our uranium. In short, Russia loved that Obama was e feckless wimp.

    Don't know why you say that, after a couple of decades of insignificance, Russia really returned to the forefront during Obama's watch.
