Citing fact-based articles on the Obama legacy by the Big News Media is like citing the time the boy cried “Wolf!” when there actually was one. For every citizen-reporter news story critically and factually exposing the wiles of Obama, there must be a hundred or more Big News Media propaganda sheets singing his legacy praises. Which is why the mainstreams have zero credibility. But then again, I can’t remember a time over the past 30-odd years beginning with the Clinton Cabal, when they had any credibility at all on anyone’s legacy.
Obama is without any doubt at all, the worst president in our nation’s history by any stretch of the imagination or legacy. His domestic agenda has shackled the economy and forced millions of people to work two and three jobs a week just to keep food on the table. Millions more have given up looking for work and suck on the government teat. His administration’s foreign policy agenda has resulted in the wholesale slaughter of hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of people, with a refugee crisis of biblical proportions developing along the nation’s southern border and into the towns and cities of Texas, where illegals are simply dumped by ICE at bus terminals. An Osama Obama legacy alright.
At the same time, let’s not forget that much of the damage wrought by Obama and his minions regarding his legacy, could have been prevented or at least ameliorated if the Republican House and Senate had fought back. Their spinelessness in the face of Obama’s serial Constitutional usurpations is unforgivable and should never be forgotten. The legacy that never was. Never.
There’s a list coming up of Obama’s dismal failure following eight years of White House occupancy. Myriad vacations, thousands of golf rounds, failed interjections and policy, and general non-involvement in programs and initiatives that were absolutely essential in the governance of the highest office on the planet, failed miserably to insure the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” to every single United States citizen. And that’s a fact.
As James Arlandson expresses it in the opener to his piece in American Thinker:
Obama is proud of himself. He and his devoted followers believe he has left America in better shape than when he found it.
To avoid the accusation of bias and (fake) “fake news,” let’s use the mainstream news media and government websites, in almost every case, to prove that Obama and his core followers are misjudging their own country and the world.
1. His Benghazi policy was deadly for four Americans.
These deaths happened in September 2012, before his re-election, so the DNC had to adopt a false narrative about a video because terrorist groups were supposedly in retreat.
2. Obama withdrew the troops from Iraq prematurely.
We should have kept a military base there for as long as we have in Germany, Japan, and Korea. But Obama believes the standard leftist lie that America around the globe causes problems, not solves them.
3. The rise of ISIS “took me by surprise.”
It did not surprise all of U.S. intelligence. The generals told him trouble was brewing.
4. Syria and northern Iraq are disaster zones.
Refugees are streaming out of the area.
Complicit in so many impeachable offenses regarding Obama’s legacy are Cryin’ Johnny? (the feckless Boehner); Paulie? (the once-rising-star Ryan); Congress and Senate of Corrupt Cowards? (too numerous to mention, but you know who they are); Cue the crickets.
On the other hand, the erstwhile ‘Lion of the Senate’ Ted Kennedy, once called him ‘Osama Obama’ (an oblation which stuck) and he has been proved correct except that Osama Bin Laden was a piker compared to Obama.
Finally, this from one of the smartest commenters on my various threads:
It is even much worse than Gangster Government defying the Rule of Law. Osama Obama undermined what was left of the Constitutional processes in our Nation. While Congress has systematically surrendered their powers to an Imperial Presidency and a Bureaucratic, Administrative State, Osama Obama forced them to abandon the Power of the Purse and the Budget Process with Congress Passing CR’s for much of his dictatorship.
The Bureaucratic State was perverted to tyrannize a large portion of ‘We the People.’ He destroyed the credibility of the Supreme Court with two communist Appointees and arguing ObamaCare is a Tax like Social Security resulting in the Supreme Court Ruling we must buy products against our will in the name of ‘Commerce.’
He also tyrannized the States especially Jan Brewer in AZ on illegal immigration and Judge Feldman in LA with the Gulf Drilling Moratorium. And he has pitted the one-third of Americans who are conservative against one-quarter who are progressives, as well as black and brown against white.
The Nation will not recover unless and until the constitutional Separation of Powers and Federalism are restored. [end] (VonMises)
