Former president Obama loved to blame George Bush for all the woes he supposedly inherited, but the facts have just been revealed…and it isn’t pretty, Barack.
Not only does he have to suffer through the scandal over government surveillance of President Trump’s transition team, which has has also engulfed former security adviser Susan Rice, but now, another MASSIVE blow.
A new report has just broken, and it ranks him as the worst president in the past 70 years in one hugely important category.
This legacy he’s trying to build is going backwards. Trump continues to eliminate key elements of that so-called “legacy” and America is cheering every wrecking ball our president throws in Obama’s face.
This time, another wrecking ball, but this one was thrown by the Commerce Department.
“Last week the Commerce Department released its third revision for fourth-quarter 2016 gross domestic product.
The number came in at a paltry 2.1 percent, meaning that growth during President Obama’s final year in office — the end of an ‘Error of Hope’ — landed with a big thud at just 1.6 percent.
That low-water mark puts the Obama presidency in last place among all the post-World War II presidents when it comes to economic growth.”
Do you think Mr. Obama is aware that this subpar growth rate really hurt low-wage earners, especially as they try to climb out of poverty and reach the middle class?
As long as they were willing to get in line to vote for him for his second term, he probably could not have cared less.

The interesting part is that Obama’s failure might have hurt Hillary in her quest for the White House, an unforgivable sin if there ever was one:
“President Trump often cited this fact on the campaign trail, saying ‘Obama is the first president in modern history not to have a single year of 3 percent growth.’ The highest average growth in any calendar year under Obama was 2.6 percent in 2015.
Trump rode a wave of anxiety caused by the Obama economy to victory in this past November’s election.”
Mr. Obama may not have cared about those who suffered under the anemic growth that plagued the economy during his tenure, but if Hillary figures out this helped Trump defeat her…
Well, Obama best not expect any legacy-building help from his former secretary of state.
