The Obama Legacy Will Not Soon Be Forgotten

Presidents come and go and, generally, are soon all but forgotten by the public at large. One exception was President Lincoln, who is, in my opinion remembered for all the wrong reasons. It was Lincoln and the Civil War that ended the Founder’s dream of a small federal government with the limited powers enumerated in the Constitution.

Who would have thought at the start of this 21st century that an unknown community organizer in Chicago by the name of Barack Hussein Obama would quickly rise to State Senator, U.S. Senator, and then to President these United States in nine short years? Moreover, who would have thought that; only two years into his second term, he would be capable of establishing a legacy that will not be soon forgotten. Barack Obama not only delivered on his promise to fundamentally change America; he will be credited with fundamentally changing the world.

The Washington Free Beacon reports on the opinion made by Ron Fournier, a writer for the left-leaning National Journal. Mr. Fournier was opining on Obamacare in the aftermath of the Johnathan Gruber revelations. Fournier describes himself as someone who wanted Obamacaere to succeed. Although his comments were concerning Obamacare, he inadvertently captured what will be the Obama Legacy in one sentence:

This president has destroyed the credibility of his administration himself and government itself.”

Actually, Barack Obama superceded his wildest dream. By way of his ineptitude and incompetence, he also was able to destroy the credibility of this great nation on the world stage.

Congratulations, Mr. President! Your legacy has been cast in concrete. You will be long remembered for your incompetence, ineptitude, divisiveness and self-centeredness. Thanks to you about 60% of Americans will never trust government again. That much, at least, is a good thing.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

  1. “You will be long remembered for your incompetence, ineptitude, divisiveness and self-centeredness.” If only. The progressives will make sure that the History is scrubbed. In fact, what History? Precious few of the children today are taught anything like the truth of our founding. They are taught to hate the evil founders who ripped the country away from the savage Indians. Oops. Just Indians.

  2. Realistically, historians will not look back at Obama as much else besides his unique story. His Presidency has been average at best. His greatest accomplishment was a second or third step towards eventual national healthcare of some kind, and that’s about it. The American culture will be more noted, for finally coming of an age when race mattered less enough for a black person to be elected President, and for beginning to show signs of refining in such a way that the current brand of conservatism, which has been around a while, is fading out.

    Two things strike me for now:

    Were it not for gerrymandering, the GOP would already be a national minority at the federal level across the board. At the state level, perhaps not. It would therefore seem to me to be in their interest to resist development of any kind – to maintain the developmental status quo. With domestic development comes domestic change and the GOP would risk losing what power they have.

    The Red States are now mostly net “taker” states, dependent on more federal dollars coming in than going out. Federal spending on the military, the police state, and other over-sized sectors that are hurting our society or just not accomplishing anything, are the life’s blood of Red State coffers. Maintaining the status quo on that spending is definitely in the interest of the GOP.

    These guys are no good for the country.

    1. Finally you’ve written a comment that shows you put some thought in to it. You got everything ass backwards, but that’s all right. If you believe everything you said, then you must arrive at the same conclusion I do. America is and has been for decades in a race to the bottom. It will lose that race to Japan and Europe; but it will cross the finish line. The Democrats have lead the way and the Republicans have followed suit. The 0.1 percenters will end up with all of the wealth.

  3. Obama and the democrat party’s sanctioned influx of the uneducated and poor peppered with their criminal element (yes kids, criminals, first imported by Mr Peanut with his 1980 Mariel Boatlift) flotsam and jetsam from every third world cesspool on the planet, armed with nothing more than instructions on how to work the American government’s giveaway programs along with directions to the nearest free clinic, hospital, Motor vehicle office and school bus stop to get a ride to the polls on election day in order to vote for the Democrat column has most likely eliminated the need for the democrats gerrymandering if indeed they are no longer doing so. But give the man credit; he has done what he can to reinvigorate racial and class warfare on a scale not seen in this country for decades. He will be remembered as the first President to bring down the unemployment rate while joblessness among the middle and lower classes reaches new heights due to his economy now rife with over regulation and over taxation. He truly is the messiah. Let’s leave his brilliance in foreign policy for another day.

  4. Actually, Obama rose from “community organizer/State Senator” to U.S. Senator to President in a mercurial TWO SHORT YEARS from 2006-2008.

    Obama’s 2004 speech at the DNC national convention is what got it all got started. He was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006 and President in 2008. How soon we forget.

    With Obama firing the first salvo on Friday by implementing immigration reform though executive action, I believe it’ll set up another two years of government gridlock that will assure Obama’s legacy as the most divisive president in U.S. history.
