What legacy? I will admit that he was handed a crappy deck when he got into office, and that the reinvestment act did help. However, what he needed to do is stop the giant sucking sound and stop businesses from moving manufacturing to China and knowledge work to India, leaving nothing but McJobs behind in most of the country.
And exactly how would any such regulation/restriction/taxation plane he would have come up with get past a Congress who was openly hostile? They would have nailed his ass to the proverbial cross and screamed "SOCIALISM!" and you know it.
Instead, Obama presided over more gun control laws passed in three years that ever were passed in the history of the nation (which has caused crime to rise.)
No, it hasn't. And what gun control laws? I can walk into a gun show and walk out with an arsenal with bags of ammo. Anybody can, from your mother to that crazy wild-eyed freak who lives at the end of road and occasionally gets into arguments with clouds. That's why psychos can walk into bar a gun down 50 people, or why some road-raged asshole can shoot a 3 year old in the neck because the grandma was driving "too slow".
a healthcare plan that insurance companies used to their advantage (I know people who are single paying $500 more a month than in 2010),
And that's Obama's fault because? The compromised healthcare bill is a far cry from the original (and simple) one it started from, but it's the only way that the health insurance lobbied republicans would allow to pass.
The insurance companies have for decades said that they would come up with a way to make health insurance affordable to everyone, all the while making sure measures were lobbied into place to ensure that only the well off can actually afford it. When Obamacare was originally put forth with a single payer plan, the insurance companies did an epic freakout. $DIETY forbid we actually have universal healthcare.
a Chamberlain-esque foreign policy which caused a power vacuum and gave us Daesh (with enemy attacks on US soil every month or two in their name)
Try going back a few more years. Obama didn't create a power vacuum. Obama didn't destabilize what little stabilization there was.
and allies, for the first time since WWII, have been left to their own devices to fend for themselves, with broken promises of protection or help.
What are you talking about? Which allies have been "left on their own"?
Of course, the Dems point at Wall Street and cheer. Those numbers mean jack shit for the average person because that wealth flies overseas never to be seen in the US again.
Nooo, they mean jack shit because that money flies into the pockets of the wealthy never to be seen again. Wages are stagnating because the so-called "job-creators" are creating new bank accounts for themselves with the gobs of cash that keeps getting funneled to them. One look at the wealth inequality in this country is all you need to figure out where the money is going.
Companies care about profit. It doesn't matter if it's coming from America or someplace else.
In reality, unemployment is still high.
Even the tech sector jobs are tenous at best. You have to completely reinvent yourself every 6-12 months or you are on your ass. Don't know what kubernates, terraform, or the platform of the hour is? Better learn now before you have to learn while unemployed.
You're working in the wrong place if your swapping technologies every few months.
As it stands now, there is arguments on who gets the share of the pie, but Obama's policies have caused the pie to shrink for everyone involved with the biggest disparity between rich and poor in the nation's history.
And how would Obama, by himself, manage to fix that? You honestly think the republicans would ever pass any measure that dare threaten the bank accounts of the saints of Wall Street?
The wealth disparity has been a problem since the 80's and has only gotten worse. The republican trickle down garbage and corporate cronyism has down a remarkable job of consistently funneling ever larger amounts of money from the middle class and poor up to the wealthy. Democrats don't have spines so they never do anything about it either.
You can't run a country on service jobs and expect it to survive. You also can't contract out a military's items to foreign companies and expect it to work (like US planes to India.)
No shit. And what makes you think someone who has basically come out and said his campaign was a bunch of feel good bullshit lies is going to do anything address your "concerns"?
