Federal Reserve figures for 4th quarter 2016, Obama's last, show Americans deeper in debt, back where they were during the great recession, especially students whose debt has set another record.
But the "Obama Legacy" isn't that during his tenure Americans' economic situation worsened in terms of rising debt, declining living standards and wealth and income inequality that are at record highs. It's not that Americans were thrown out of their homes at rates that topped 1 million per month sometimes while Wall Street got bailed out and was lavished with years of quantitative easing that went straight into the pockets of the tiny minority who own the vast majority of stocks. Obama's legacy isn't his seven wars, the hundreds of thousands he killed, the extrajudicial assassinations by drone, the massive increase in domestic spying, the vastly expanded new powers he added to the imperial presidency. The Obama legacy is that liberals sat on their asses and said nothing. It's that they wanted more of it under Hillary Clinton.
But Trump, they say. Trump. Trump.
What about Trump? He's hit a stone wall everywhere he's turned because people
we the people are angry, and Democrats and Republicans and even judges are frightened by the peoples' ire and have pushed back against Trump, and unlike it was during the Obama years the media has become one giant fact checker and is finally doing its job. So Trump is on the run, because liberals and all kinds of people who
sat idly by all those years are finally awake and in the
streets and in airports and picking up their phones and sending emails.
But Trump. Trump. American democracy. That's all a liberal can say because they've done nothing about the family debt and student debt Americans ran up under Obama, or his wars, his Cold War escalations, the living
standards that declined, the utter abandonment of workers by Democrats. Liberals have nothing to say because they've never even thought about any of it, and they won't. They're a
broken record repeating Trump, Bernie Sanders, Comey, Russia, Trump, Trump, Trump.
