These Are the 6 Reasons Obama Was America’s Worst President, Ever

By

A lot of what Barack Obama did while in the White House is glossed over as everyone focuses on his status as the first black president in our nation’s history.

But the historic achievement of a black man becoming president aside, Obama should ultimately be judged by his performance as commander-in-chief.

And when one starts to really look at the things Obama and his administration did, a troubling picture emerges.

What’s really ironic is that many of the following six reasons why Obama was America’s worst president sound like precisely the kinds of things liberals typically try to pin on conservatives and Republicans. From invasion of privacy to refusing to work with the other side of the aisle to abuse of power, Obama’s guilty of it all.

From PJ Media:

  1. Weaponizing the government against his enemies
    Perhaps the most well-known example of the Obama administration abusing its power to target Obama’s political enemies is the infamous IRS scandal. There are also examples of conservative individuals being targeted as the result of gross abuse of power by the Obama administration. Obama’s pièce de résistance when it came to abuse of power is perhaps his spying on the Trump campaign.
  2. Obama’s surveillance state
    According to the ACLU there was a 64 percent growth in electronic spying by the United States government during Obama’s first term.
  3. Purging Gitmo
    As a candidate in 2007, Obama promised he would close the terrorist detention facility at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba (Gitmo), as soon as he was elected. He signed an executive order on January 22, 2009, requiring Gitmo to close within one year. Congress refused to go along, so instead of closing it, he systematically purged the prison of its terrorist inmates, as a sort of end-run around congressional opposition to closure.
  4. Obamacare
    Despite his campaign promise to bring Democrats and Republicans together to reform healthcare, Obama signed a trillion-dollar government takeover of one-sixth of the United States economy with zero Republican votes in the Senate and only one Republican vote in the House. Despite a promise of transparency, Obama and then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made sure that the final negotiations were held behind closed doors.
  5. The worst economic recovery
    There have been eleven recessions since World War II, each of which was followed by a recovery. Even Obama experienced an economic recovery… it just happens to be the worst one.
  6. The largest deficits in history
    When adjusted for inflation, Obama owns the seven highest deficits in history—surpassing the deficits incurred during World War II. Obama’s smallest deficit was still higher than the last deficit before he took office.
