Not true because History already exists.....and, in the end, he moved the needle on health care which is really the #1 problem in the USA. We might go backwards now under Trump, but eventually this country will have universal health care and Obama will be credited for getting the ball rolling.

Here are the most accurate scholar and historian rankings...one cannot use "public polls" because most people don't know history and they obviously are partisan in whatever way...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histor...survey_results

Obama is bouncing around from 8 to 17, which in general puts him in the top 40%. I've always figured he will end up in the top 1/3rd, which he is on average there.

Trump is, of course, either last or among them.

Obama will be credited with a lot of human rights stuff, slowly pulling the US...with a steady hand...from the GWB Great Recession and the Health Care stuff.

Historians use actual facts...not your or my feelings....it's not The Apprentice or The Voice.

Obama will only be remembered for his socialist policies, healthcare in particular when he shoved a mandated and very flawed healthcare reform down the throats of Americans and congress acted on it without even getting the full details of it. It resulted in most Americans paying higher insurance premiums and getting less coverage.

Obama is his superior in every way. He knows it.

I thought Obama was a Christian? Oh, the Reverand Wright kind of Christian

Yeah, like the fact that he secretly meets with Anti-White and Anti Jewish Biggots. Bravo, to your heroes Obama and Farrakhan

And now you know the REST of the story (which isn't really a story, at all).

Liberal clowns are so amusing!

When we see a man, like Donald Trump, who does that, coupled with his very negative disposition, it tells me he has some mental issues that rule his life. No one can have a normal conversation with Trump, he either goes off on a tangent, bragging about himself, or, he takes offense and goes into attack mode.


In any event, he is not someone I would want to know or have anything to do with. I find him to be a downer....not a quality you want in someone who is supposed to be a leader and uniter.
And since Trump doesn't drink you couldn't even have a beer with him. To paraphrase Will Rogers--I never liked a man that doesn't drink. Now with Obama you could sit down and knock back a couple of cold ones.

The OP is ridiculous, citing an article written by a leftie WaPo columnist whose OPINION it is that Trump is worried about his legacy lol.

All that reflects, is that all things Trump are living 24/7/365 in his mind, too, just like every other crazed liberal.

If a man has fake magazine covers printed up about himself, his character is pretty much laid bare.

Obama is living in Trump's mind 24/7/365. At the G7 Trump blamed Obama for the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Of course Putin had nothing to do with it.
