Brazile Declares Obama Was a Leech, Continues Scorching Old Democrat Friends

Former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile has been on a roll recently. She’s ripped into the DNC’s former leadership, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and now former President Barack Obama.

In her new book, “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House,” Brazile outlined how Obama leeched off the Democratic Party to further his own causes, even if it meant bankrupting the entire party, The Daily Caller reported.

“We had three Democratic parties: The party of Barack Obama, the party of Hillary Clinton, and this weak little vestige of a party led by (Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz) that was doing a very poor job getting people who were not president elected,” Brazile wrote.

Brazile noted that Obama never needed the DNC because he rose up outside of the DNC fold, and thus didn’t need its help in raising money — but he wasn’t shy about using its money to further his political pursuits.

“This was not working to strengthen the party. He left it in debt. Hillary bailed it out so that she could control it, and Debbie went along with all of this because she liked the power and perks of being a chair but not the responsibilities,” Brazile wrote.

This truly is a scathing indictment of Obama and Clinton — one that isn’t going to go away overnight.

“(Obama) used the party to provide for political expenses like gifts to donors, and political travel,” Brazile wrote.

Brazile wrote that even during Obama’s second term, he used party money to fund pollsters and focus groups — even though he would never have to worry about running for re-election again.

Brazile tried to soften the criticisms somewhat, but the essential bitterness came through nonetheless.

“I knew that these three did not do this with malice,” she wrote.

“I knew if you woke any of them up in the middle of the night to ask them how they felt about the Democratic Party they would answer with sincerity that they loved this party and all it had done for the country and for them.”

“Yet they had leeched it of its vitality and were continuing to do so,” she added.

This is becoming quite a sight to see. Brazile has ripped into the Democratic party like few others have — and she’s been quite effective because she’s an insider.
