Obama’s ‘Zero’ Legacy
Authored by Eric Zuesse via Strategic-Culture.org,
Trump did more than any democrat to deflate the neocon/neoliberal agenda that liberals themselves screamed was fascist when Bush was president. That was a brilliant and profoundly true reader-comment recently posted about Hillary Clinton supporters who are demonstrating against Trump’s winning the Presidency.
Clinton-Obama Democrats who remain loyal to the Democratic Party in the wake of Trump’s victory are world-champion hypocrites, even if they’re too oblivious to know it. The Clinton-Obama political tradition of pro-megacorporate government, actually repudiates, instead of embodies, that of the Democratic Party’s earlier quintessential exemplar: the 1932-1980 FDR-dominated (Franklin Delano Roosevelt) era, the most progressive period in all of U. S. history. Though I voted both times for Barack Obama, he turned out to be one of the worst U. S. Presidents, if not the worst of them all – even if he was (as I thought each time) the best of the bad (in each election).
