As Barack Obama prepares to leave the presidency, his party in disarray and his 11th Hour actions looking like a mad scramble to retain his hipster image while disguising his ineptness, his “legacy” is looking like a train wreck.
He leaves in his wake scandals without closure, including Operation Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting of conservative groups and Benghazi. His first attorney general was held in contempt of Congress. The court scrapped his executive privilege argument on Fast & Furious documents. His not-so-Affordable Health Care Act is about to be ripped to shreds, and on top of it all, the abstention on Israel the other day at the United Nations has infuriated America’s strongest ally in the Middle East.
How long will it take for people to stop joking about “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor?”
An article in the Wall Street Journal tells readers to “Notice the growing and many ugly ways the Obama administration is actively working to undermine a Donald Trump presidency.”
Another piece, at Fox News, observes, “The Democratic Party suffered huge losses at every level during Obama’s West Wing tenure. The grand total: a net loss of 1,042 state and federal Democratic posts, including congressional and state legislative seats, governorships and the presidency.”
Months ago, when he declared that the Nov. 8 election was actually a referendum on his legacy, he never expected that his successor would be Donald J. Trump. As with so much else in Obama’s presidency, he didn’t see that coming. Maybe he found out about it by watching television.
The New York Post suggested on Christmas that Obama’s legacy is a “devastated Democratic Party.”
He made a career of blaming others for his failures. His favorite whipping boys were Fox News, the National Rifle Association and Rush Limbaugh, according to a piece at iPatriot.com.
Perhaps Obama’s true legacy is that he was so bad that the nation did a full 180. Republicans will control Congress. Trump will be in the White House.
And Obama will be a memory.
