Truth of Obama's legacy
To the Editor:
While the media continue to champion the legacy of Barack Obama, President Donald J. Trump is rapidly trying to end or overturn a few of his more significant disasters, such as heath care and illegal immigration.
And what exactly was his legacy? Could it be described as the decline of his own party, a lackluster economy and the appeasement of dictators, and a world in chaos and disarray? A nation and a world where hate seems to be the watchword of the day.
Obama claims his economic policies created the longest streak of job growth in our history, and today nearly every American has access to the Affordable Care Act. He claims to have reestablished U.S. leadership, leading with diplomacy and partnering with nations to meet global problems.
Truth be told, Obama’s economy has left millions of Americans behind. A recent Gallup study found that there was no economic recovery under his leadership. And his many regulations, including those of Obamacare, have simply helped to make the economy more anemic due to the massive economic cost to the American taxpayer.
Perhaps the media should tell the truth and shame the devil by actually attempting to write the truth about this legacy of ineptness that normal thinking Americans were forced to contend with for eight long years. And even today the two who had the most to lose, Obama and Clinton, are still behind the scenes trying to pull strings to embarrass President Trump. Have they no shame?
