The Barack Obama Legacy Deserves To Be Destroyed

It’s strange that a president who had such a transformative effect on our national discourse will leave such a negligible policy legacy. But Barack Obama, whose imperial term changed the way Americans interact and in some ways paved the way for the Trump presidency, is now watching his much-celebrated and mythologized two-term legacy be systematically demolished. This, in many ways, tells us that American governance still works.

Now, now gentlemen, no snickering or cheering, please.

We say "sniggering" but I can well see why Americans don't dare. Anyhoo, Obama: "a president who had such a transformative effect on our national discourse". He certainly stimulated debate on whether he had any talent other than reading a teleprompter. But he was the Trump of his day - better the absurd Obama than the appalling McCain.
