On Thursday, President Obama released an “exit memo” reviewing his eight years in office. Shockingly, he thought his presidential tenure was pretty much the best thing ever. I wrote about the brag sheet today for the New York Post:
Apparently, in 2008, America was a smoldering hellscape ravaged by bloodthirsty neocons, greedy banksters, and intolerance lurking behind every Bush. But then the clouds parted, a rainbow framed the warming sun, and the smartest, kindest, boldest leader ever rode into our imperial capital on a white gender-indeterminate unicorn.
In less than a decade, he fixed the economy, delivered health care, united Americans, granted peace to the world, and healed the planet itself. My name is Obamandias, President of Presidents; Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
You gotta hand it to the guy: He’s not encumbered with excess humility.
…For nearly 2,000 words and more than a dozen graphs, Obama presents a Potemkin America that stands astride the globe, citizens dance arm in arm, and paychecks fall from the sky. But this is a standard tactic of the progressive left — insisting that politicians can fix all ills and how horrible things were before their guiding hand.
Hopefully, the next four to eight years can reverse all the damage he has done.
