<p>Following their humiliating defeat in the 2016 election, the Democratic Party found themselves in a terrible place where they were down <a href="http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/12/27/democrats-lost-over-1000-sea…; target="_blank">over 1000 seats</a> through all levels of government since 2008. And according to one high-ranking Party official, one person held the blame. &ldquo;The number two official for the Democrats says former President Obama is to blame for the Party&#39;s recent electoral failures,&rdquo; Fox News&rsquo; Bret Baier reported on <em>Special Report</em> on Thursday, while the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) ignored the figure pointing. &nbsp;</p>

<p>Baier played two clips of Democratic Party Vice Chair Keith Ellison where he ripped into the former President during a forum in Minnesota:</p>

<blockquote>
<p>Barack Obama could have been a better Party leader, And I think that the fact that he wasn&#39;t has put his legacy in jeopardy &hellip; We lost a lot of statehouse seats, governorships, secretaries of states. His true legacy is in danger, and I think that he can&#39;t say that he wasn&#39;t&mdash;he wasn&rsquo;t part of those losses. I mean, who else?</p>
</blockquote>

<p>According to a report by <em><a href="http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/329673-ellison-obama-deserves-blam…; target="_blank">The Hill</a></em>, Ellison may have gotten a little personal in his criticism. &ldquo;Ellison added that Obama was &lsquo;great at getting himself elected&rsquo; but said he should have worked closer with party leaders to ensure the Democrats were in power to protect his accomplishments,&rdquo; they reported.&nbsp;</p>
