Jackie Kucinich, the Washington bureau chief for the Daily Beast and an analyst for CNN, on Sunday said that President Obama for the last eight years has hung the Democratic Party "out to dry."

"He is someone who hasn’t really made Congress a priority … or the party in general over his last eight years," Kucinich said, reports The Washington Free Beacon. "Just at the end there did he start kicking in and, you know, trying to make up for lost time. So that will be really interesting in addition to him trying to save Obamacare."

Kucinich was on a CNN political panel led by Nia-Malika Henderson. The topic was Obama’s meeting this Wednesday with congressional Democrats regarding saving Obamacare.

"It will be interesting to see how Democrats in that room receive a man who led them the last eight years but kind of, in a lot of ways, led them out to dry," Kucinich said.

Kucinich’s comments come days after Politico senior politics editor Sam Stein told Fox that Obama had "overseen" the destruction of the Democratic Party.

"He leaves them in a much worse position," Stein said. "The states are decimated, they've lost control of the House and Senate. The governorships are decimated. So, yeah, maybe he — he is obviously a gifted candidate. He did win the election twice by substantial margins, but, you know, his legacy as a politician is a bit muddied by all that."
