In case the Liberals and Democrats on PRSI haven't yet grasped the magnitude of the disaster that engulfed the Democratic Party last Tuesday, here's a tally of the damage: March 4, 2016 - MARA LIASSON The GOP may be in the midst of an identity crisis, but the Democratic Party is also facing a political crisis that could be made a lot worse if it doesn't win the White House in November. Whoops! Guess we know how that turned out. Here's why: Part of President Obama's legacy is the health of his party. He's had many successes in office — health care reform, climate change regulations, Wall Street reform — but his legacy will also include one huge failure: a diminished Democratic Party. Every president sees his party lose hundreds of positions — it's the price a party holding the White House pays — but no president has come close to Obama. During Obama's eight years in office, the Democrats have lost more House, Senate, state legislative and governors seats than under any other president. When Obama took office, there were 60 Democratic senators; now there are 46. The number of House seats held by Democrats has shrunk from 257 to 188. There are now nine fewer Democratic governors than in 2009. Democrats currently hold fewer elected offices nationwide than at any time since the 1920s. So should the Democrats shut their party down and try creating a new one? One without the taint of Liberalism, smug elitism, and failure?
