LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Obama did not have a successful administration

For two years, we heard about President Trump working with the Russians.

When that did not work out, we heard about obstruction, then it turned into we’re racist. Now we have impeachment. With all this going on, I started to think about what kind was Obama’s administration.

To begin, his administration was not for personal responsibility. Quoting the speaker of the house, “If you’re unhappy with your job, you can quit. We can help you get food stamps.” The Obama administration gutted President Clinton’s welfare reform rules to get as many depending on the government as possible.

Before the virus, thank God, we had an opportunity economy, not an entitlement economy.

Next, he turned the IRS into a partisan and crooked agency, and the FBI was found to be crooked at the top. Everyone knew the DOJ was crooked, with the director meeting with President Clinton on the plane at midnight two weeks before the election.

Race relations deteriorated during his administration. Police relations got worse during his administration. Then, we got the Affordable Care Act, with deliberate lies and bribes, and it did not work.

Four diplomats were killed during his time in office. They had more computers burning up, phones being destroyed and emails erased during his administration.

Obama was so consumed with legacy that he let Iran dictate his Syrian policy, which created ISIS.

In the end, his legacy will be only that he was the first black president, and he killed Osama Bin Laden. Not a very successful administration.
