A newly revised book detailing more than 200 reasons former President Obama was “the worst president in history” is being promoted among conservative circles.
The historical analysis of the former administration allows readers to retrospectively look back on the decisions, appointments, and scandals which contributed to the Obama legacy – all of the details, for better or for worse.
Will Obama continue to be remembered among the greats in American history, or does modern media judge him with bias which unfairly inflates his prestige?
“The Worst President In History, the Legacy of Barack Obama” written by Matt Margolis and Mark Noonan, shares “the most comprehensive takedown of the Obama presidency,” according to its description.
Here’s more on the book from the description:
The presumption of Barack Obama’s presidential greatness began before he even won the presidency. Now that he’s out of office, presidential “experts” and historians are ranking Obama as one of our nation’s greatest presidents, placing him amongst Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson, and Truman.
Obama’s presidency was certainly consequential, but it was by no means great.
Did Barack Obama really save America from another Great Depression? Did he really improve America’s image around the world, or unite America? What about the new era of post-partisanship and government transparency? Did he really expand health coverage while lowering costs and cutting taxes? Did he make America safer and stronger than it was when he first took office? According to his supporters in the media, Hollywood, and academia, he did. But, they are wrong. And they are working aggressively to ensure their version of Obama’s legacy is written into the history books.
Matt Margolis and Mark Noonan have compiled everything you need to know about the presidency of Barack Obama into a single source. First published in 2016, this book has now been updated to include the entirety of Obama’s presidency, and the shocking details we’ve learned since.
The Worst President in History: The Legacy of Barack Obama compiles 200 inconvenient truths about Obama’s presidency–the facts that define his legacy: His real record on the economy; the disaster that is Obamacare; his shocking abuses of taxpayer dollars; his bitterly divisive style of governing; his shameless usurping of the Constitution; his many scandals and cover-ups; his policy failures at home and abroad; the unprecedented expansion of government power… and more.
The description goes on to describe an Obama record that “he’d like history to forget” and destroys media claims about his greatness with “an avalanche of facts that simply cannot be ignored by supporters or experts before putting Obama’s presidency into historical context.”
The Washington Examiner reports a sample of the 200 reasons Obama could be historically seen as one of America’s worst presidents:
A sampling of the 200 pulled from the book:
- Blaming Bush and Congress for his woes. “During Obama’s first term, he blamed Bush for the economy, for the botched Operation Fast and Furious, for the massive deficits, for our plummeting national wealth, for our problems in the Middle East — for just about everything that went wrong.
- War on coal and oil. “Obama forced more than 200 coal-fired plants to shut down over a five year period.”
- Cut funding to fight aids. “This inexplicable decision had a devastating effect on Africa, where most AIDS deaths occur.”
- Nominating John Brennan as CIA director. Brennan has gone on to be President Trump’s critic.
- DACA via executive order. Obama went around Congress to give amnesty to some 800,000 younger illegal immigrants.
- Assault on the press. The Committee to Protect Journalists, said of Obama’s media attacks, “In the Obama administration’s Washington, government officials are increasingly afraid to talk to the press. Those suspected of discussing, with reporters, anything that the government has classified as secret are subject to investigation, including lie-detector tests and scrutiny of their telephone and e-mail records.”
