I have never heard that the next president will define what his predecessor has done. But in the world of liberal garbage talk anything is possible.

The story says that Trump would not exist if not for the backlash against Obama. It continues to say that Trump will be busy undoing the "key" initiatives like immigration, climate and race relations.


For Obama and his supporters, a stubborn fact will linger long into the Trump era. Donald Trump would not exist as a political entity if not for Barack Obama. His elevation to the presidency would not have been possible without a backlash against the president whose time is coming to a close.

That means, for a good stretch of the Trump presidency if not longer, Trump’s success will be defined by his ability to undo what Obama did. The Trump whirlwind is already overtaking Obama, and January 20 will begin a countdown toward the unraveling of key initiatives regarding immigration, the climate, and race relations.


In a farewell speech Obama said that "we" need to create opportunity for all, or there will be an elevation in political discourse.
They list Obama's achievements in health care?, social justice?, the economy?, the environment, and efforts to disentangle the nation from all the war?

In response to the new reality, Obama is seeking to leave office with reminders of what got him there. With his calls to accept diversity and elevate political discourse, he set that up as a veiled warning of what his successor might bring.

“If we don’t create opportunity for all people,” he said Tuesday night, “the disaffection and division that has stalled our progress will only sharpen in years to come.”

Obama leaves office with an array of achievements –- in health care, social justice, the economy, the environment, and efforts to disentangle the nation from a long period of wars. Yet the list of unfinished business is always and inarguably longer.

What the article sights as "achievements" i view as utter failures. Amazing. He taxed everyone earning under 250k in direct contradiction to his base platform just for starters. Freedom is opportunity...you cannot legislate how someone excecises that...that is why he failed in lasting change, particularly change for the better.

Agreed, I find it dubious that they claim social justice as an achievement. Sad really.

The Obama related scandals outweigh the "achievements" 10:1

The impact of the failures were more damaging to the majority of Citizens.

Yeah, dubious is being too nice. Killing cops, and reverse racism, complete lack of social moral, ethics etc...patently ridiculous.

He succeeded in what he really wanted and that was to "get back at whitey"

It sure seemed like Obama had a problem with law enforcement. Kicked off with the classic "I don't have all the facts---but the police acted stupidly".

Firstly, no one uses the word stupidly, second if you don't have the facts and you are president, one call and you will have can get every fact and the DNA of everyone involved. Inexcusable.
