What he leaves behind

Barack Obama became president because of the color of his skin. From the start, observant people were unconcerned about his race but suspect of his intentions, because of his background.
The tipoff was when he announced that he intended to “fundamentally transform” the United States. Why, people asked immediately, would anyone seek to fundamentally transform the greatest nation in history, one that has done more good for more people than any other, ever?
Dinesh D’Souza provided in the answer in his best selling book The Roots of Obama’s Rage, which was made into a movie. As in the Soviet Union, D’Souza’s actions put him in prison.
Obama, D'Souza explained, was the product of Obama’s communist parents, stepfather and mentors.
They believed, as did Obama, that the United States was too powerful and too prosperous.
In his two books, Obama made his intentions clear. (What kind of a narcissistic egomaniac writes two autobiographies before he reaches middle age and before he has accomplished anything in his life beyond being a “community organizer” (professional agitator)?
Other clues were that he sat in his church nodding while his pastor thundered “God damn America!” Another was when his wife revealed that she never had any regard for this nation until it elected her husband.
Although he spoke of lofty goals like world peace and stopping the alleged rise of the oceans, Obama clearly set out to make the United States less prosperous and less powerful.
While he did nothing toward his stated goals, he did make progress during his eight years toward his true goals.
By putting back from the world stage he allowed other interests to assume the power he relinquished. He kowtowed to those interests and made deals that were not in the best interests of this nation.
He constantly belittled the Christian and Jewish religions and praised the barbaric religion of islam, which is continuing a 1,400 year quest for domination of the world.
On the economic front, he seized control of a large segment of the economy – health care, vastly increasing its cost and the government’s control of it. He pursued policies, such as minimum wage increases and tremendous increases in regulations, that destroy jobs.
At the end of his stay in office, growth was at a record low pace and the national debt had doubled since the time he criticized his predecessor for the size of the debt. Although he pledged to right the economy during his first term, and stated that he should not be re-elected if he failed, he failed and ran again.
In short, he was a complete failure. Yet, he endorsed someone who pledged to continue his course and said the election would be a referendum on his policies.
They were repudiated.
As a practicing narcissist, Obama constantly obsesses over his legacy. Here it is: he will be what Charles Krauthammer called a “historical parenthesis” – the first person ever elected president who hated the country he governed and sought to lower its status in the world.
