(PatrioticPost.com)- In 2012, scientists discovered a new parasite in Kenya. And in what was supposed to be a compliment, they decided to name this new parasite the Paragordius obamai after then-President Barack Obama.
Apparently naming a parasite after Barack Obama was more appropriate than those scientists even realized.
In his new book, “Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats’ Campaign to Defeat Trump”, journalist Edward Isaac Dovere describes the former President as a parasite on the Democratic Party.
Though the book is clearly about the 2020 election, Dovere takes Obama to task for the utter electoral devastation the Democrats experienced during his eight years in office.
Dovere has a point. Obama’s tenure saw Democrats lose historic numbers of state and federal legislative seats, not to mention 13 governors.
According to Dovere, even Obama’s own aides believed that the former President completely abandoned the Democrats after securing the White House for himself in 2008.
The 2008 election was a Democrat wave – building on their 2006 majority in the House, and bolstering their position in the Senate by eight seats. But post-election, Obama’s focus wasn’t on building on that majority. Instead, his focus was entirely on his own reelection four years later.
In his book, Dovere says Obama didn’t build a Democrat bench, nor did he care to. Instead, Dovere writes, Obama used the party structure the way a parasite uses a host.
He sucked it dry in order to win reelection.
By Obama’s second term, Dovere writes, “he cared about what happened to the husk as much as any parasite does.”
Dovere describes Obama as carrying himself with a “self-assured self-regard,” but says in hindsight it is “hard not to see delusion in the self-assurance.”
This isn’t the first time Obama has been criticized for exploiting the Democrat Party for his own advancement to the detriment of the party as a whole.
But this criticism from Dovere is unique in that, unlike most Obama critics, Dovere is not a conservative, but a leftist.
Other nuggets from Dovere’s book include Jill Biden’s anger Kamala Harris’ attack on her husband as a racist during the first debate. Dovere’s book alleges that after the debate, Mrs. Biden told supporters Harris “could go f**k herself.”
