His legacy may be gone in your mind, but not in reality. If you had a job to go to this week, thank Barack Obama. If you still had your home to sleep in last night, thank Barack Obama. You may prefer to forget what America was like in 2008-09, but we who have better recall do not forget those dark days. Obama did such a good job that Trump is still benefitting from the improving economy he inherited . (Well, as least it WAS good, until Trump started messing it up !)

That is only one example. Millions today have health coverage because of Obama, even though Trump tried unsuccessfully to stomp out that plan and "replace it in his first 90 days". Where is that better plan he promised ?

He also got us out of two protracted, senseless wars, and brought many people to justice (aka Bin Laden)

I know I just wasted 5 minutes , typing this, as you will never admit Obama did anything, but thank God Obama came on the scene when he did, or this country would still be in the toilet.

Obama will not even want to top that.
Anakin Skywalker was the chosen one too. Look how that turned out.

Trump has accomplished very little, he’s mostly just noise. Even with full control for a couple years, was just stuck in the mud. He can’t even keep staff around long.

Trump "terrified" history will remember Obama as a better president than him


If so, that's a problem of his own making. He is entirely responsible for that.

He was a black man with a Muslim-sounding name and stood up to the Christian Right. That's unforgivable to conservatives.

So far, no one but you and a handful of fringe characters actually think so. It is clear Trump doesn't agree with you either, otherwise he wouldn't be obsessed about this.

Trump won't be alive to see most of this - but right now Trump is rated dead last by most scholars and historians and Obama in the top 1/3rd, so the odds of them ever being close are about zero....unless we turn into the Nazi States of America, in which case Trump will likely be in the top 10.

Please then explain what Trump's rationale is for talking about Obama and attempting to denigrate and demean him at every opportunity.

Trumps numbers are brutal...sinking like a stone! He is not 12.5% difference - between approve and disapprove.

Put another way, 30% more people do not approve of him.

Or another way, among the approx. 220 million US adults, about 30 MILLION more don't approve than do......
