One year from now, it will be as if President Obama never existed. Okay, that may be overstating things, but not by much. Because he neglected the sober work of a statesman, which would have involved convincing Congress to enact his ideas through legislation, Obama will watch over the next year as many of his deeds fades into nothing. From The Hill:
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said President Obama’s legacy will disappear within a year of him leaves office.
In an appearance on Fox News on Wednesday, Gingrich criticized Obama for telling President-elect Donald Trump to push his policies through Congress, rather than by executive orders.
“What you’re watching is a man who realizes all of a sudden 90 percent of his legacy is going to disappear because he didn’t do the hard work of passing legislation,” Gingrich said.
