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Actually, Barack Obama superceded his wildest dream.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?
