The end of the Obama presidency is near. In its wake are a string of broken promises, a stagnant economy, growing global threats, and an anxious nation.
Predictably, the president has begun to put his spin on the last eight years. He’s even taken to parroting conservative themes—channeling Reagan, some have suggested—to recast his time in office as somehow centrist. But let’s get real. No one’s being fooled. The real Obama legacy is one of sprawling liberalism, divisive identity politics, bigger government, and America ceding leadership in the world.
