Until recently, Jimmy Carter was widely acknowledged as the most incompetent US president in living memory. So it must have pricked Obama’s overinflated ego like a needle when Carter said this of his presidency:
“His major accomplishment was Obamacare, and the implementation of it now is questionable at best.”
That is, Obama has been an unmitigated disaster, as predicted by patriots from the beginning.
Peter Wehner thought that, especially coming from Carter, this may have been too cruel a blow. But then he reflected,
What exactly are the impressive achievements of President Obama? The revival of the American economy? Surging job growth? The success of the stimulus package and the number of “shovel ready jobs”? Moving us toward energy independence? Reducing the debt? Reducing poverty and the number of Americans on food stamps? His oversight of agencies like the IRS? The Fast and Furious program? Ending America’s political divisions and unifying his countrymen? Perhaps his skillful handling before, during, and after the terrorist assault on the American diplomatic outpost in Benghazi? His successes in Syria? Egypt? Iraq? Iran? Peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis? And don’t forget his signature domestic achievement, the Affordable Care Act, which may rank among the worst major government programs in modern American history, a failure in both conception and implementation.
But don’t go away thinking the voters didn’t get what they asked for. At the surface level, Obama pretended he would be a competent and responsible steward, and voters pretended to believe him. But his real promise was to punish America for its supposed white guilt by bringing it down off its exceptionalist pedestal to the level of a second-rate nation. In this regard, he has been succeeding beyond the wildest dreams of the country’s worst enemies.
