Tough choice for Progressives: stand with Michael Moore or Obama?
(Hollywood Reporter) Michael Moore sees President Obama’s legacy as set. The progressive documentary filmmaker couldn’t help but express his disappointment with the legislative accomplishments of the politician.
“When the history is written of this era, this is how you’ll be remembered: he was the first black president,” Moore said during a discussion at The Hollywood Reporter’s video lounge at the Toronto Film Festival.
“OK, not a bad accomplishment, but that’s it,” the director said. “That’s it, Mr. Obama. 100 years from now, ‘he was the first black American that got elected president’ and that’s it. Eight years of your life and that’s what people are going to remember. Boy, I got a feeling, knowing you, that — you’d probably wish you were remembered for a few other things, a few other things you could’ve done.”×

“So, it is, on that level, a big disappointment,” Moore said.
Is Moore correct? Possibly? There are many things Obama might be remembered for. Increasing the national debt by over 7 trillion dollars (so far). Hyper-partisanship. Doing all he can to avoid doing the job he campaigned for twice. Golfing. Golfing immediately after giving a statement about an American beheaded by ISIS. Presiding over an economy in the doldrums. Leading from behind. Refusing to get behind rising democracy in the Middle East. Yammering on about income inequality while enriching the 1%. The list of Bad Things goes on and on.
It will be interesting to see how history remembers Obama.
