bye-bye, Barry

A collection of reflections on Obama's presidency that articulate, better than I can, what I think of the past eight years:

Victor Davis Hanson

Stephen Hayes

"The Obama Legacy in One Chart"

Bre Payton

Peter Berkowitz


If you prefer to filter your reality through distorting organs like The Huffington Post, please be my guest, but I think the above assessments—which admittedly contain some contradictions when paired up with each other—present a more accurate picture of the reality of the past near-decade. And now, on January 20, we embark on uncharted waters. I think Obama was disastrous for the nation—easily as bad as Dubya had been, and I agree with the current wisdom that Obama's track record, now seen in retrospect, paved the way for Trump's rise (note that article's source). Are we in for worse, or for better? We'll soon find out. My hope is that the next 4-8 years will be more interesting than depressing.
