Tell us again, why does the left continue to love Obama?





Fred Barnes at Weekly Standard wrote: The Wipeout of Obama’s Legacy
. . . "Decisions taken by the president alone are vulnerable to being erased by subsequent presidents. And that’s what happened to the pact with Iran. It wasn’t a treaty ratified by the Senate. Democrats used the filibuster to block even a nonbinding vote on it. Trump killed the deal with his signature. That was also all it took to quit the Paris accord on global warming.
"There were two factors behind Obama’s decision to shun a treaty, which requires a two-thirds vote in the Senate. Winning that lopsided a vote appeared to be impossible. On the other hand, Obama had a backup—Hillary Clinton. She was expected to win the presidency in 2016 and could be relied on to protect the nuclear agreement." . . .

A Trip Down Memory Lane: In 2015 the Obama Administration Said the Iran Deal Wasn’t Even a ‘Signed Document’ "On November 19, 2015, the State Department sent a letter to then-Representative Mike Pompeo that severely undercuts the notion that the Iran deal represents any form of binding American commitment. It turns out that the Obama administration not only acknowledged that the deal wasn’t a treaty (obvious enough), but it also admitted that it wasn’t “an executive agreement” or even a “signed document.” Here are the key paragraphs:. . .

The Federalist: The Obama Legacy Deserves To Be Destroyed  . . . "None of this even breaches the unprecedented regulatory regime Obama built to circumvent the legislative branch. Even The New York Times characterized his governing as “bureaucratic bulldozing, rather than legislative transparency.
But this writer warns us: . . . "That’s fine, too. It means that if Trump engages in similar legislative efforts through the executive office, his agenda will also be dismantled one day. That’s as it should be."



Noisy Room: Exposing And Dismantling Obama’s Legacy  "Matt Margolis, author of The Scandalous Presidency of Barack Obama, examines Obama’s ransom payment to Iran and other scandals. “We’re still paying the price for the eight years he was in office,” he says. “If we don’t fully understand what happened and what motivated him, and the impact of his policies and decisions, we’re going to be in for trouble.” Margolis believes the next generation should receive the truth about the damage that Obama did to the nation."  Video

Ron Hanforth creates a brilliant timeline that outlines Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. His timeline reminds us why every American should all be grateful to President Trump for his decision to withdraw from this horrible, one-sided deal.
