New York Times: ‘Was Barack Obama Bad for Democrats?’ #FakeNews

President Obama Laughs with Aides on Air Force One

Comedy Gold: Was Barack Obama Bad for Democrats?”, by Stanley B. Greenberg and Anna Greenberg, the New York Times

At NRO Deroy Murdock writes:

…As Obama concludes his reign of error, his party is smaller, weaker, and more rickety than it has been since at least the 1940s. Behold the tremendous power that Democrats have frittered away — from January 2009 through the aftermath of Election Day 2016 — thanks to Obama and his ideas:

Since Franklin Delano Roosevelt, eight U.S. presidents have served at least two terms or bowed to their vice-presidents due to death or resignation. Among them, Obama ranks eighth in total state legislative seats that his party preserved during his tenure.
