Obama's 'Zero' Legacy

«Trump did more than any democrat to deflate the neocon/neoliberal agenda that liberals themselves screamed was fascist when Bush was president».

That was a brilliant and profoundly true reader-comment recently posted about Hillary Clinton supporters who are demonstrating against Trump’s winning the Presidency.

Clinton-Obama Democrats who remain loyal to the Democratic Party in the wake of Trump’s victory are world-champion hypocrites, even if they’re too oblivious to know it. The Clinton-Obama political tradition of pro-megacorporate government, actually repudiates, instead of embodies, that of the Democratic Party’s earlier quintessential exemplar: the 1932-1980 FDR-dominated (Franklin Delano Roosevelt) era, the most progressive period in all of U.S. history.

Though I voted both times for Barack Obama, he turned out to be one of the worst U.S. Presidents, if not the worst of them all — even if he was (as I thought each time) the best of the bad (in each election).

His only real legacy as President turns out to have been disasters, including things far worse than his failed Obamacare, which increased the healthcare inflation-rate in our country, where healthcare already costs twice as much — and twice as high a percentage of GDP — as the international OECD average, but delivers inferior healthcare results. America is becoming internationally even less competitive in our healthcare system than before — which was already at the international bottom.It’s sucking the lifesblood out of the U.S. economy.

Obama does have a legacy , unfortunately it's all bad , he was elected because he was black , his political experience and experience of world issues have been limited to his muslim background. He is , in my opinion , the worse president and the worse individual to have an office of any type. I also believe he should be tried for treason race baiting .He should be tried for aiding our enemies . An firing squad would do him and the country justice.
I was going to say have him castrated but we all know he has no balls.

Okay, we've tried the election of a person based on skin color, this one with an avowed lifelong Socialist history and mindset. History will not be kind to this president. Nor should it be.
