Obama left the White House the same way he got into it – lying to his teeth. He came with a promise of change, but all he offered was the Status Quo. He came into office in a time, when the country was in ashes and he didn’t leave it in a better place.
After 8 years of being in office he expressed how happy he was that he would leave this administration without a major scandal. But is this really the case?
In the beginning of his campaign he opposed the Patriot Act, which made spying on American citizens legal. However, after he entered the White House he increased NSA’s budget and under his leadership the organisation created dozens of new programs to spy on people. It was all exposed by whistleblowers like Edward Snowden. The increase in the capabilities of the NSA were of course accepted in the name of fighting terrorism. That’s what all dictators do. They hide behind fear tactics.
Moreover this is the slowest recovery from a financial crisis in US history, since the Great Depression. This is mainly because Obama’s administration got the Dodd-Frank Act passed, which made getting credit for the small business owners almost impossible.
Let’s talk about former president Obama’s foreign policy, after all he is a Nobel Peace Prize winner. Yes, you heard correctly – the man that helped in the creation of ISIS is a Nobel Peace Prize winner. He bombed and destabilized 7 countries in total – Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan. The former secretary of state – Hilary Clinton, who was appointed by president Obama, was caught saying in an interview for CBS about Muamar Kadafi’s death: “We came, we saw, he died”. This pretty much sums up the foreign policy of Obama.
Don’t you think it’s time to wake up from this dream already? Isn’t time to stop believing politicians, that would say and do anything just to get in office so they could spend OUR money. During Barak Obama’s presidency a whopping 35,4% of the US citizens were on welfare. That’s over 100,000,000 people. That’s the legacy of Obama – one of ashes.
