Skip to comments.Obama's Legacy: 5 Failures The Media Won't Tell You About
Posted on 01/22/2017 5:54:00 AM PST by RPMack
Even though Obama’s presidency comes to an end Friday, The Great Revision has long been underway. Obama and the mainstream media have been spreading falsehoods and fantasies about his record. Last year, I co-wrote and published a comprehensive takedown of Obama’s presidency so that America wouldn’t be so easily fooled. Here are five failures that stand in stark contrast to the fictions Obama has been spreading about his legacy:
1. Job growth was actually bad
Obama fancies himself a great president for the economy, citing “record job growth” and a low unemployment rate as proof. What he won’t tell you is that while roughly 15 million jobs were created since 2010, the working-age population grew by nearly 18 million. In fact, the jobs gap got wider during the “recovery”, and most of those jobs were actually part-time. Not only has job growth not kept up with population growth, and the labor force participation rate is at a 38-year low, but wage growth has also been stagnant. Hardly a record to be proud of.

The media does more damage by refusing to report stories which are horrible for Democrats than they do by ginning up fake or trivial stories about Republicans.
The media is the primary means by which Democrats manipulate the electorate into supporting their insane policies and agenda, and the existing media monopoly on the broadcast airwaves needs to be smashed.
Nothing new in this....
President Donald Trump, our 45th Potus!
Nah, I’m done with Obama. Why beat a dead horse?
Good article but he didn’t even mention Obama’s failed foreign policy, injustice department, immigration, etc. I can only hope future historians will take an unbiased look at the last 8 years and accurately record what happened.
The lack of hope has driven many to despair and suicide and Betsy Mcchaughey spoke about it here:
“4. Race relations are worse ... much worse.”
Really, that is the most egregious sin of this administration. A black president COULD have 1) asked Blacks to look at the mote in their own eye - they are indeed more racist than whites today, & 2) asked his fellow Blacks to forgive the abuses of the past so that the country could move forward. Dwelling on what happened years ago, instead of acknowledging how much progress has been made is foolish. Yes, there are still racists & people still deal with prejudice. But whites are not the only racists & we all deal with the unjustified prejudices of others in our daily lives.
