Looks like Obama is going to be in charge of rebuilding the Democrat Party !!

The decimated Democrats have suffered major losses steadily since Obama's election in 2008.

So now he himself will finish them off.

They certainly do need some rebuilding.

Is he the one to do it? Or will he make it worse like he already has?

Obama reveals his post-presidency plan to rebuild the Democratic party and mold 'the next Barack and Michelle'

Barack Obama has revealed his plan to rebuild the Democratic party and mold its new leader after he leaves the White House.

In an in-depth interview with The New Yorker on Thursday, the President told how he would help his successor Donald Trump settle in to the role before vacating it.

Once out of office, he hopes to dedicate himself to training and advising a new wave of politicians, the next 'Michelle and Barack... who right now is sitting out there'.

The leader that destroyed the party is going to lead the rebuilding proccess?

Those are the kind of decisions that destroyed it in the first place.

You and the rest of the posters in this thread are crazy. Obama is WELL loved among the left and is literally the best hope for rebuilding the Democratic party.

It's funny, democrats talk about being inclusive all the time, but one of the reasons they've been losing is that their policies are not inclusive to a lot of people that aren't big city residents. They need to reel in the extreme socialist end of the party, and also not vote for career criminals.

Probably 75% of Americans are socially liberal. That's not where they are losing. It's the hard socialism, it's the derogatory way they talk about country folks, it's the annoying sjw nonsense, it's the adopted neocon foreign policy. They make it really difficult for middle of the road people to vote for them. The only thing keeping them from losing worse is that republicans push religion and authoritarianism too much, and haven't figured out how to be less abrasive in their image.

Middle America is libertarian even though they don't realize it and won't vote for a third party.

He still doesn't get the fact that his policies which Hillary ran on were part of why she lost, does he? LOL!

Isn't the rebuilding process going to be hampered by the fact that American parties don't have a formal leader between elections? It must mean that every proposed attempt to define the party gets caught up in an unremitting power struggle.

He made all the destruction to the party possible so far, why not let him finish it off?

Please cite examples on how he "destroyed the USA"

AFAICT we are still undestroyed.

Though if we are going to talk about who can be blamed for our current situation.
There are some other 500 crooks and liars in the capital building who are responsible for the laws written up in this country.

People still like Obama.
Is he the guy to rebuild the Dems. hmm.

He has come out often against the rising SJW element within the left (+1)
He has been absolutely tone deaf on the Islamic concerns..not just terrorism, but just a incompatable culture (-1)
He is fantastically loved in how he speaks and his ideals of a peaceful world(+5)
He has been ineffectual as a peace president and has stirred up (perhaps unintentionally, but still) a concerning cold war stance with Russia, and has nearly lost the Philippines as our ally (-5)

I could go on. its really becoming a wash. If he himself learns where his failings are, then yes..but if he simply demands he has reached his final form and none of his positions triggers some review upon reflection, then he will only remake it into the same sliding side of pettiness, pushing a warhawk authoritan stance, and ultimately will not grow much. Yeah, people love Obama..but not the party he is standing with anymore. People may love the burger king, but they will still eat at McDonalds

Obama may be well liked, to a degree, but most of his policies aren't. If the Democrats need someone to speak to their base, yeah, sure, he's your guy. But if you need someone to build a national strategy and set of policies that appeal to a much broader audience than the far-left and left-leaners...probably not. We only need to take a look at the heavy Democrat losses across the country since 2010 for strong evidence of that.

The Democrats need to find someone who can relate to the average American from suburbia to rural America and everywhere in between. They need someone who can develop a national strategy and set of policies that appeals to people outside the urban areas on the coasts. Right now, they don't seem to have anyone that can do that. Worse, I don't think they even have anyone that wants to do that. That Obama may be their best hope says a great deal of the sad state of the Democratic party at this point.

I don't disagree with you that he is well loved among a certain segment. The problem is that he has almost single-handedly presided over the most disastrous time politically for his party.

Any fondness people bear for him does not translate to others with the same political label.

This was always my worry. He was such a relatively young President, how would he choose to use the remainder of his days? Apparently, he needs the adoring masses so he won't fade away into respectable oblivion with charitable works and good deeds. He should go to Africa or Central America and champion the cause of third world countries and their people. Teach other leaders how to lead more effectively, get clean water, etc.

He requires both an external enemy and a scapegoat to pass himself off as effective and competent. The DNC already has both setup... the GOP will continue to be their external enemy and he past failures will be scapegoated to Obama's already existing list of scapegoats as well as the newly dubbed "fake media" and, of course, Hillary Clinton's failure to be "far enough to the left."

So far every prediction/worry the media and the left placed on Trump leading up to the election:
-social unrest after he loses
-he'll tear the GOP apart
-the conservative base will flee the party
-he'll call for the electoral college to be torn down
are ironically coming to pass within the DNC, not within Trump's supporters and the GOP.

Really makes you wonder, doesn't it?

With his charisma, he ought to go take his enlightened brand of leadership to a poor benighted third world nation. Then he would be occupied for the rest of his life.

Obama has a condition called chronic diarrhea of the mouth . He has shown symptoms for over 8 years now.The condition seems to be contagious as it spread to his wife , Michelle , shortly thereafter.The strange thing is , it appears to be able to be spread over various forms of media as well as close contact .The symptoms have been long term explosive spewing forth of some form of feces from the mouth . Most likely related to bull**** or possibly horse**** . The condition has steadily worsened over the years , as now it has become a near constant occurrence.

This disease later morphs into the need for writing books containing the above mentioned bio-hazardous contagious material. Seems as if the only reasoning behind writing these books is for pure monetary gain and a show of power. This has been shown by previous political officials to various extent

The best defense from this disease is an extended bout of rollicking laughter. This method appears to be the best preventative as the contagion starts as an acceptance of the words as logical and reasonable. At later levels of those that have been affected , another affliction sets in. This affliction is named "mindless zombie" syndrome . At this point , it is neither curable nor treatable
Peace Out Y'all
