Embarrassing Memo About Obama Leaks To The Public, Liberals FRANTIC To Keep It Hidden

The clock is ticking down until the day Obama leaves the White House, and Obama’s legacy is something that will be debated in decades to come.

Trump’s legacy, meanwhile, will likely be undoing Obama’s, which has been disastrous. From the economy to foreign policy, we are not better off than we were eight years ago. His record speaks for itself, and history will undoubtedly view his legacy as one of disaster.

As Hannity reports, here’s Obama’s legacy, by the numbers:

In light of those figures, I personally don’t think there’s much debate as to what Obama’s legacy is (though pundits in the mainstream media will pretend that it is). In fact, that only positive aspect of Obama’s legacy is that it left Republicans with the Presidency, House, and Senate.
