The Obama years are almost over, and he knows that his legacy is screwed (thank God).
It’s not necessarily a legacy worth preserving anyway. What do we have to show for the past eight years? Stagnant wages? A record low labor force participation rate? Record levels of government dependency? Skyrocketing health premiums? The rise of ISIS? When you rack up $20 trillion in debt, you’d think there would at least be something positive to show for it. Not in Obama’s case.
Before Trump can take office and undo his legacy, he’s been making some controversial moves. Obama has been on a clemency roll as he heads out the door. On Tuesday he commuted the sentences of 79 drug offenders bringing the total number of federal inmates who’ve had their sentences reduced by the soon to be exiting president to 1,023. He has now granted clemency to more inmates than the past 11 presidents combined.
That’s not all. Democrat U.S. Reps. Zoe Lofgren, Lucille Roybal-Allard, andLuis Gutierrez, recently sent a letter to Obama imploring him to use his pardon authority to forgive the past and future civil immigration offenses of the estimated 750,000 impossible to verify so-called “DREAMers.” If Obama were to do that, it wouldn’t be because he cares about those poor illegal aliens – it’s because he wants them to become Democrat voters.
How is Obama behaving? In the words of Sheriff Clarke, like a tenant whose been evicted and is now trashing the place before leaving.
Is that a perfect description or what?
Obama has already left one hell of a mess for his successor during the past eight years, so why is he making things even worse?
Thank God we at least have Donald Trump to undo his legacy. If Hillary Clinton were elected, the next eight years would be no different than the last eight.
