Obama's Legacy: "being black, and being able to convincingly read a teleprompter."

There was nothing worthwhile for the US in Obama's presidency. Even his radical race agenda made black race relations their worst since 1968. m/r

The Rotten Obama Record -- and Legacy

By David Prentice April 10, 2017

There is an excellent cartoon showing a circle of people surrounding Barack Obama, guarding him, preventing anyone from bringing him harm.  An observer asks if those people are the Secret Service.  The answer:  No, that’s the media.
I don’t think there is a better portrayal of the Obama legacy.  This cartoon succinctly communicates how this man gained office, kept it, and remained popular.  The Obama phenomenon had a complex side, but the most complex and nefarious part was the unwillingness of the mainstream media to criticize, or bring up any hint of wrongdoing on his part.  From the beginning, our media created an image for him, never actually delving into his background, his beliefs, or his life in any way.  Unlike the quest to find out Trump’s tax returns, the media never sought to reveal who or what Obama was.
After Obama’s election, it was Chris Matthews who infamously said, “My Job Is to Make the Obama Presidency a Success” continuing with, “This country needs a successful presidency.”  The entire left-leaning media clearly took that construct as its main job for Obama.  They reported everything as positive.  If there was something negative, or heaven forbid WRONG, it often was ignored, lied about or spun hard to make it look like nothing was there.  Great examples are the horror of Obamacare, the lies about Benghazi, and the falsehoods about the “wonderful” Iran deal.
There is a very dark underbelly to this fawning:  Obama himself.  Here was a radical leftist who had accomplished nothing in his entire life.
