Propagandists Declare Obama's Legacy Will Be Fine

It is time for King Obama to exit the stage.  The Anointed One will deliver his farewell speech in Chicago and it will be an elaborate affair, unlike his farewell speech to the military.  We can expect all sorts of lies and embellishments about his record.  Unfortunately for us, this will not be the last we’ll hear from this narcissist.  He has a legacy to burnish.

Apologists in academia and print will crawl out of the woodwork and proclaim the brilliance of Barack Hussein Obama.  Progressives are already peddling this nonsense that he was the right man, in the right place, at the right time for the job.  Why we couldn’t have survived without the steady hand and calm demeanor of this captain.  The only reason Obama’s legacy is perceived as a failure is because of those rascally republicans.

I remember my sixth grade, history class –yes they taught history back then – and I still cannot forget the hagiographic tripe about FDR’s New Deal.  Roosevelt was lauded as a savior of the nation.  The country wouldn’t have survived without bailouts and all those alphabet agencies dictating wage and price controls, not to mention all of those infrastructure projects.  Why, the United States would’ve been a footnote in history if it weren’t for the federal government.

I didn’t question those assertions until I got older and began to wonder why it was called The Great Depression and the reasons this calamity came about and lasted as long as it did.  After all, wasn’t FDR a great leader?  Wasn’t he a genius?  Why, he was the right man, in the right place, at the right time for the job, so we were told.  Come to find out, this great leader’s policies were an impediment to a recovery.

Barack Obama’s legacy will be protected.  Today’s academia and the mainstream media will make sure tomorrow’s sixth graders will be spoon fed the same kind of crap I was forced to memorize when I was a kid.  After all, we are beneficiaries of FDR’s New Deal and progressives made damn sure we knew it.
