Yes, Michael, I already said that you are probably correct.

America today (whether left or right, progressive or reactionary) disagrees with any fact that does not support their pre-conceived notions.   Thus, much of America will disagree with the indisputable facts I have listed abut Obama below.

Hillary lost because most Americans cannot stand her as a person.
The Democrats knew this from their own polls, but ran her anyway.
That was not mere arrogance, it was hubris.

Trump won because, no matter how disgusting a pig he is, he was not Hillary.   Millions did not care that he is a nigger-hating, Muslim-baiting, Mexican–bashing, pussy-grabbing, lying blow-hard bankrupt without a sensible policy to his name – as long as he was not Hillary.

Millions more were willing to take a chance on his lack of sensible policies because they knew that Hillary was offering the same old policies that got us nowhere for the past 40 consecutive years.  If Trump’s stated policies were stupid or impossible or just plain lies, voters reasoned, they couldn’t be any worse than the Democratic policies, which they knew were mostly lies already.

Obama could not help Hillary because 8 years of his presidency did little to change the source of malaise in our country: the fact that the rich are getting richer while the middle and working classes are getting poorer.    The feeling of “left behind” does not stem from inequality of wealth, it stems from inequality of opportunity and from resentment of a system that is set up to transfer wealth and opportunity from the less well off to the rich. 

Why the left-behind felt that they might be helped by someone who is on the receiving end of those transfers is difficult to fathom.  But, hey, Hillary is also one of those on the receiving end, so perhaps that did not figure very strongly in the equation.

Finally, there is foreign policy:  voters can see that America no longer has the power to shape world events that it once had. Small nations no longer quake at our gun-boats and larger ones no longer clamber to get onto the bandwagon of whatever we are selling.  Although the rational mind may know that speaking loudly and shaking a big stick is unlikely to change this, they have seen that neither the voice of reason nor the surgical application of force have changed it either.   The emotional mind may grasp at straws of hope that the rational mind knows are unlikely to help.

Anyway: it is what it is and we are where we are.  Now we can only hope that the next four years will not be the catastrophic disaster I predicted they would be regardless of who won the election.

how did the Democrat party under Obama?  America disagrees with your assessment.  

i.e.  maybe exports increased, but imports increased even more.   you need to compare exports to imports.   the trade deficit increased to 800 Billion (5% of GDP).   that is a 5% leakage to our economy.   

America disagrees with your assessment.  Hillary lost even with all that Obama did to help her.

You are probably right, Michael.
Obama certainly will NOT be remembered for things such as
  1.       A stock market rise of over 240% (DJI from 7,850 to 19000 and change)
  2.       Cutting the deficit by 2/3rds (from 1.4T to 0.44T) and by more than 2/3 as % of GDP
  3.      Cutting unemployment roles in half (from 10m to less than 5m)
  4.       Increasing US exports by a third
  5.       Increasing domestic oil production by 85%
  6.     Increasing manufacturing jobs (largest sustained increase since 1998)
  7.      Increasing new car sales from 13.2m to 17.4m (an all-time high)
  8.     Improving Fuel Efficiency Standards
  9.      Getting health coverage for 17 million uninsured Americans, including 4 million children
  10.     Reducing the number of illegal immigrants entering the US
  11.     Increasing the number of illegal immigrants being deported.
  12.     Eliminating Osama Bin Laden
  13.     Stopping US torturing of prisoners 
  14.    Increasing support for US veterans
  15.     Signing a new START treaty to reduce US & Russian nuclear weapons
  16.    Helping to stop (or at least delay) Iran’s nuclear weapons program
And that’s just a few.   You can see some 400 accomplishments he will not be remembered for at

Title:  How will Obama be Remembered?             December 3, 2016 
By Michael Master (author of Save America Now, Rules for Conservatives, The Birth Famine)  

So how will Obama be remembered?  Certainly as the first black president.  But was that a good thing or a bad thing?  Will he be remembered as all that is wrong with affirmative action or as a failed president who happened to be black?  

Liberals claimed that opposition to Obama was because of race… that only bigots and racists opposed Obama.   The truth is that Obama is the only president to not have any executive experience prior to being elected president (no military, no government, and no business).   Lawyer is not executive experience.  Legislator is not executive experience.  Community organizer is not executive experience.  Professor is not executive experience.  While being president is an executive position.   

My opinion is that Obama failed because he is the only president to lack executive experience.  His race was not the issue.   His experience was.  

“Bigot” is a word used nowadays by bigots for everyone who disagrees with them. --  Sir Roger Scruton           

When Obama assumed office on January 21, 2008, Democrats controlled the House and the Senate.   Obama toured the world to apologize for the actions of the USA.  Obama did whatever he wanted.  Democrats passed Obamacare without one Republican voting for it, without any compromises with Republicans.   Obama was not inclusive.  He did not compromise.  He represented the “alt left.”  Since then, Democrats lost more than 900 state legislative seats, 14 governors, 13 US senate seats, and 67 US House seats ... more losses to the Democrat party than at any other time in history.   

As the head of the Democrat Party, Obama was a failure.    

Since Obama took office, the wealth gap between the rich and poor grew to its largest since 1930, the stock market increased more than 100% while net wages for working people decreased, unemployed black men in inner cities grew to 40%, job participation is at its lowest level of 62% since the Great Depression, 94 million Americans are out of work (more than any time in history),  home ownership is at the lowest percent in 70 years, crime increased dramatically in inner cities, 75% of children born in inner cities are born out of wedlock (a 500% increase in 40 years), the GDP only grew 14% in 8 years (the least amount over any 8 year presidential term, including during the Great Depression) while the national debt increased 100% (debt increased 7 times faster than GDP revenue) and inflation was 20% (14 - 20 = - 6% loss in purchasing power for the average American), healthcare costs and insurance doubled, the annual trade deficit increased to $800 billion per year (5% of GDP), the military became sorely depleted, ISIS,  Benghazi, Afghanistan, US withdrawal from Iraq, Iran deal, DACA, TPP, WTO,  manufacturing left America and took 20 million high paying manufacturing jobs with it, the USA replaced high paying manufacturing jobs with low paying service jobs, abortion, late term abortion, black lives matter vs blue lives and/or all lives, persecution/killings of Christians in Muslim countries and Africa without any tangible reactions from Obama, and America is more divided now than at any time since the Civil War.  Obama put globalization ahead of America.  

As president of the USA, not the world, Obama was a failure.  

In departure form generations of presidents, Barack and Michelle campaigned vigorously for Clinton to maintain his policies, executive orders, and legislation.  

Clinton offered more of the same Obama policies while Trump offered to make America great again.  Trump beat Clinton by 306 electoral votes to 232.   The states where Trump beat Clinton represent about 57% of the population of the USA.   While Clinton won the popular vote, Trump won the actual population 57 to 43.   The popular vote was spiked for Clinton by huge differences in NY and California and Massachusetts.  Trump chose to not campaign in those states and was able to win the presidency by spending less than a $100 million on his campaign while Clinton spent a billion dollars (10 to one).   Trump did what good businessmen do.   He focused on the markets that mattered.  He maximized his investment.  He demonstrated what he will do to make America great again… be a great executive… maximize USA investments for the USA.    

Now, how will Obama be remembered?   As all that is wrong with affirmative action or as a failed president who happened to be black?  You be the judge.
