Obama’s Legacy - The Good and (Mostly) Bad
Before Barack Hussein Obama entered the White House on the fateful day of January 20, 2009, he had already begun a legacy of far-reaching implications. Now after eight years in the White House, President Obama has left a legacy that will be debated for decades to come.
I have heard someone mention that at least no one ever could prove a scandal against President Obama. To which I would love to have responded, “What planet have you been living on in the past eight years?”.
Before Obama took office, he vowed, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” But what did that actually mean? It’s much like Nancy Pelosi in her infamous words, "It's going to be very, very exciting," stating that Congress "[has] to pass the bill so you can find out what's in it, away from the fog of controversy." Now that we have the past eight years to reflect, we can now see what Mr. Obama meant about his vision of the transformation.
