The Obama Legacy: Over 1,000 Democratic Seats Lost to Republicans

In May 2009, after the historic Democratic victories in the 2008 election that saw Democrats win the presidency, the House and a super majority in the Senate, liberal strategist James Carville argued that Democrats could dominate politics for the next four decades.

But that was in 2009.
Since then Obama has destroyed public morale and trust in government with his radical Progressive agenda and anti-American foreign policy.

In 2010 Democrats lost the House to Republicans.
In 2014 Democrats lost the Senate to Republicans.

Since Obama took office Democrats have lost:
** 14 Senate seats
** 69 House seats
** 12 governorships
** 910 state legislature seats

That’s over 1,000 seats lost!
Nice job, Barack.

    What’s the number of appointees and unelected officials Obama has enabled and put into seats that impact citizens daily… probably 30,000… He has nothing to fear from the inadequate power hungry elected wannabe establishment jerks.

    Whenever you want to blame Obama, think it through. Democrats and their media lackeys lied their butts off to get him elected. Blame Democrats!
    Democrats own this debacle lock stock and barrel and they should not get to let it all slide with Obama’s departure.Do not let Democrats get away with that!

    Blame Democrats! They are, after all, responsible.
    (Note – blame the democrats that have a (R) behind their names too)

    What overwhelming majority of those 1,000 “Republican” victories were rinos?

    And what infinitesimally small minority (which is probably so small as to be statistically insignificant) of those are actual conservatives?

    Because there has been a whole lot of deterioration over the same time period as those 1,000 victories, and no sign of an improvement in sight.

  • Mike in Illinois

    Judges especially. Great comment!

  • Stuck_in_Ca

    “Over 1,000 Democratic Seats Lost to Republicans” Yet he continues to get his way. That’s one of those things that makes you say, huh?

  • Goose

    do you like to annoy libby/Leftist dems? do you like watching their nostrils flare and brows furrow? I do.

    RE: this column’s Headline
    I discovered this quite by accident, but O Boy am I ever grateful to the brain-dead libby who taught me:
    call their Party the DEMOCRAT Party, and Never! refer to them as the DEMOCRATIC Party.
    O! they hate that.
    (yes, yes, I know, I call them far worse, but ignore that for now – do this in polite conversation, i.g. work)

    the libby/Leftist heads explode because they’re O! for sure certain that you’re a brainwashed dittohead but as I explain to them, ‘Democratic’ is an adjective, how would you refer to a group? ‘Democratics’? nonsense! that would obviously be grammatically awkward and too stupid to say, ignore their demands.

    the Democrat Party is certainly the most unDemocratic Party since the Kremlin crumbled. case closed.

    Thank Me. my gift to you, free, gratis, am I a Good Guy, o’whaaat?!

  • thefilthybeast

    It did not seem to slow him down one bit. The more Republicans that got elected the faster the liberal agenda got adopted. The Rs and the Ds sure seem to like a lot of the same things.

  • Stuck_in_Ca

    You are correct. We need to discriminate between RINOs and conservatives. “Republican” means nothing.

  • tommy mc donnell

    if anyone has been paying attention conservatives have been purged from both parties

  • LouAnnWatson

    limbaugh stated that long ago

  • oldaarpy

    worst POTUS ever

  • oldeagle145

    Conservatives and RINOs are as different as democrats and republicans once were.

  • jainphx

    He’s done that alright! What the heck does he need seats for when he bypasses congress and the courts at will.

  • American Patriot

    Goose, I decided to start doing that years ago because there’s nothing democratic about the Democrat party. I have always wondered how they decided on that name. Was it because Communist or Fascist was already taken, or was it because Coniving Band of Thieves and Liars doesn’t sound benevolent enough?

  • jainphx

    Wait are you saying that a lot on “our” side didn’t know or want to know? There are a lot of people involved and not all democRATS.

  • drattastic

    obama creating huge numbers on everything he touches. Lost 1000 democrat seats, 94,000,000 million Americans out of work, 19,000,000,000,000 trillion in debt, record welfare, record food stamps. What a guy.

  • jainphx

    So very true!!!!!!!!

  • LibertasDux

    These numbers mean only something if you only care about keeping score between the parties:
    1. Has the usurpation of the Constitution and the laws of the land of the United States been stopped?
    2. Has the illegal alien invasion of the country been stopped?
    3. Has the bloated bureaucracy and government been rolled backed including Obamacare?
    4. Have the deficits and the debt been reduced?
    5. Has the overly intrusive Federal Reserve been redacted?

    The only reason Obama has not been impeached is the fact that he is African-American. The only reason that none of his atrocious anti-American anti-prosperity policies been repealed or rolled back is the Republicans are equally as corrupted plutocrats as he is.

  • Mike in Illinois

    Some who claim to be on “our side” place a (R) behind their names when they have absolutely zero belief in the government of republican form. They are all about “democracy”…..

    One could think of them as “refugees” when we both know they are really “invaders”. Same kind of thing.

  • jainphx

    That revelation makes you want to puke. Nothing Obama did could not have been stopped with just a minimal amount of effort.

  • belle

    Yeah and a lot of good it’s done us. Between executive orders, vetoes and the spineless republicans we have gained nothing.

  • jainphx

    I spit at the party that I have called mine since 1963, the year I switch from the dark side. Time for a new fresh start, stat!!!!

  • Patty

    Then why the H is Obama getting by with all he has? Spineless leaders who just don’t understand the People of this nation. We wanted change BEFORE Obama was elected, the GOOD KIND and then we were slapped across the face. And he was elected twice. Our candidates in 2008 and 2012 were to nice. We now, see Trump and he is the opposite from that.

    Liberals saying if you don’t do what Obama wants, You’re a racist, sounds silly but I for the life of me cannot understand why when republicans won both houses, things didn’t change. Obama said I have a pen and phone, those were threats? No, spineless Republicans, they suddenly became the real threat, no spine. Riots in the streets if they tried to impeach Obama. Could it be that easy, the color of his skin? Yes, I do think so.

    And now, America IS going to change, in a very BIG WAY, that is why Trump is surging in the polls, this is now, his time and we are going to see what he can do for America, I my guess is, A WHOLE LOT better than what we have now.

    Houston Voters Put the Smack Down on Mayor and Perverted HERO Bathroom Bill

  • SAR2012

    Add to that the international allies offended & betrayed, as nations, governments, parties & individuals, and the number is arguably in the 9 to 11 figure range. This feckless, prissy, fraud is the greatest disaster to ever befall our Republic – including both the Civil War & The Great Depression. In the years to come an ‘obama’ will be a colloquial term for a bowel movement and / or a colossal ****-up. I already use it in the first sense and, really, think it unkindly derogatory for even the vilest dung. But, hey, what could be worse than an obama?

  • sbark

    ….and he moves strongly toward “transforming the USA” via doubling our National Debt to 20 trillion, weakening us dramatically in the worlds eyes, handing Iran Nuc capability, expanding entitlement mentality with 92 million not working, food stamps, and a Ferguson mentality toward working americans.

  • sbark

    Good stuff

  • Goose

    that’s why I referenced, “dittohead”

  • Guest

    This is the only good thing he’s done for the country!

  • MumuBobby

    What’s weird is that the Ds and the left don’t act worried. Still say the economy is great (Clinton giving Obama an ‘A’ was absurd). Still say the only thing wrong in the Middle East is Bush invaded Iraq over 12 years ago. I think the bureaucracy is why. It’s now bullet proof and the Presidency doesn’t matter anymore than the Congress does.

  • O’Brien’s Math Facts

    Obama has been the best friend the gun industry has ever had also.

    Gun sales set new records month after month and year after year thanks to Obama and his bumbling, incompetent, and impotent threats about gun control/registration in the form of a universal background check.

    There is one truism that Obama can hang his hat on, one thing that will always be remembered about Barrack Obama– he completely screwed up EVERYTHING that he turned his attention to.

    This incompetent POS’s legacy can be summed up in one word “FAILURE”

  • O’Brien’s Math Facts

    I agree Patty. I just hope the American people, the conservative majority, remember these feckless establishment Republicans and how they have let down the people that put them in their positions.

    Once Trump is President, we’re not done. We need to get every establishment Republican “Cantored” starting with the turtle McConnell.

    Trump 2016.

  • talley-ho!

    Why not consider the voting booth to be a big game blind and make November 8, 2016 a one day rino season?

  • Stuck_in_Ca

    And were told he can’t be impeached?

  • Jim

    Somehow I got a feeling, a bad feeling, that the little AH ain’t done mucking up the country.

  • Jim

    You, you, you just hate Obama because he’s (half) black. No, it’s because he’s a socialist and hates America.

  • Aggie95

    O.K. ,.,, to keep this simple never ever believe a liberal they lie ,., its mothers milk to them….. Think about it

  • DrJonnyChepe

    Many of the behaviors Obama’s displays to resolve personal issues or conflicts with congress to “get what I want” and especially his behavioral response to any criticism are indicative of NPD or Narcissistic Personality Disorder although these behaviors may be indicative of a much deeper psychosis.


    Narcissistic Personality Disorder involves arrogant behavior, a lack of empathy for other people, and a need for admiration-all of which must be consistently evident at work and in relationships. People who are narcissistic are frequently described as cocky, self-centered, manipulative, and demanding. Narcissists may concentrate on unlikely personal outcomes (e.g., fame) and may be convinced that they deserve special treatment. Related Personality Disorders: Antisocial, Borderline, Histrionic. Narcissism is a less extreme version of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Narcissism involves cockiness, manipulativeness, selfishness, power motives, and vanity-a love of mirrors. Related personality traits include: Psychopathy, Machiavellianism.

    OK, has anything really changed due to this? At the federal level absolutely nothing. At the state level some changes. At the local level changes do occur.

    The only person in America who has accomplished more than obama, is the snotty little moslem agitator who invented a clock.

    this is the Only thing I can thank obama for.

  • Sam in Texas

    While this is certainly a good thing, vis-a-vis 0bama and the Democrats and the remaking of the US one must wonder if those were the battles won while the war was being lost.

    At the other end of US history, Geo Washington lost almost all his battles, but won the war.

  • Stuck_in_Ca

    Ted is the man.

  • ladyx3

    This is worth watching for anyone who has been wondering what’s been going on… Cruz is the ONLY person on that debate stage who has been CONSISTENT in his support for our constitutional and conservative principles, and the only one who has had the cojones to publicly call out McConnell, Boehner, and the rest of the fraudulent Repubs who haven’t kept their promises that they made to the voters who sent them to D.C. I was hesitant about Cruz and his support for the H1B Visa program, but he’s explained in several interviews how the rules and intentions of that bill have been circumvented by corporations seeking cheap labor, and he assures us that he will have in place a Justice Dept that will ENFORCE OUR LAWS and that our border will be secured and immigration laws followed — “No amnesty!” — if he is elected POTUS. Trump is good at talking, but has supported Democrats for so long that I don’t feel I can trust him to follow through. Cruz has walked the walk, despite condemnation by his own party and demonization by the mainstream media, and he gets my support. Please take the time to watch this video, and pass it on…

  • Stuck_in_Ca

    It actually made me sick to my stomach to watch that. We are doomed.

  • ladyx3

    Well, Boehner was sent packin’, and, hopefully, McConnell got the message loud and clear from Kentucky voters that they’re disgusted with politics as usual… with the right president, I’m remaining hopeful that things can turn around… but it’s gonna require time — and someone with steel cojones the size of bowling balls — to deal with the absolute disasters that are being left behind by this administration. What makes ME sick is that there are still people in this country who believe that Hillary is somehow qualified to be POTUS! … there’s just no fixin’ STUPID, but, hopefully, we can out-vote it, as long as the elections aren’t rigged.
