When the Democratic presidential candidates met for the rounds of debates, they attacked President Trump. They attacked one another with equal gusto. However, one surprising target became the recipient of their ire as well. The New York Post explains:

“President Barack Obama wasn’t on the debate stage with the 10 Democratic presidential hopefuls Wednesday night — but his legacy was, and it was trashed by many of the candidates, leaving some Democrats scratching their heads in disbelief.

“Obama’s record on immigration was widely criticized by the participants and his signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act, became a casualty of the discussion around ‘Medicare for All,’ as his former Vice President Joe Biden attempted to defend the administration’s work.”

As most pundits noted, Biden was the sole exception to the pile on the former president. The current front runner has been running as the heir of Obama, a Democratic president who won election and reelection easily. He was hailed as the purveyor of hope and change and as the first African American to ascend to the Oval Office. Now, incredibly, the man who has been derided by conservatives as being an extreme leftist is considered too much of a moderate for modern Democrats who are now seeking the presidency.

Obama, shrewdly, knew that universal, government-run health care did not poll very well. Obamacare, a ramshackle policy that most analysts regard as comprising the worst of both worlds of the free market and government control. The plan barely passed the Congress and its rollout proved to be chaotic and more harmful than good. The 2020 Democrats, except for Biden, want it scrapped as enthusiastically as any free-market conservative. The difference is that unlike President Trump or Sen. Ted Cruz, most of the candidates running for the Democratic nomination want to go full-bore toward a Canadian-style government system.

The dirty little secret on immigration is that Obama was as enthusiastic a deporter of illegal; immigrants as Trump has been. Kids in cages and family separations were pioneered under his administration.

As for climate change, don’t get the modern Democratic candidates started. Obama gave lip service to the problem, offered subsidies to renewable energy companies (remember Solyndra?) and talked about bankrupting coal. But fracking started to take off under Obama’s watch and sent natural gas prices plunging. The former president did not support anything like the Green New Deal.

Still, the question arises, why does Barack Obama get all of this disrespect? President Ronald Reagan is still revered by Republicans 30 plus years after he left office.

The National Review takes a stab at an explanation. The real reason is that the number of Democratic officeholders who lost their seats in 2010 and again in 2014 were moderates, leaving behind the hard-core leftists.

“The ranks of moderate and conservative Democrats were disproportionately hollowed out under Obama, while Democrats in deep-blue liberal areas were emboldened to move even further left. (Trump has had a similar effect on the right, decimating the moderate wing of the GOP while intensifying the partisanship of conservatives in safe red areas.)

“The big-name Democrats who survived Obama are more concerned by primary challenges to their left than by general-election threats from their right. As a result, they have a hard time talking to audiences that don’t already agree with them on the big questions.“Those ultra-liberal politicians — Warren, Sanders, et al. — now drive the party to such a degree that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is seen as a moderating force on the Democrats. The moderates in the debates are like refugees of a wing of a party that has shrunk to a feather. Only Biden stands as a formidable figure, because of his time at Obama’s side.”

The sure sign of what ill regard Obama is regarded with occurred recently when Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, accused the former president of being a “pretty face” who “got away with murder.” What she said was the sort of invective that had a Republican said it would have fetched accusations of racism.

The Democratic Party has gone a long way in the last almost thirty years. It has morphed from the Clinton “the era of big government is over” to Obama hope and change leftism to what it has become today. Obama, who is still personally popular among rank and file Democrats, has been left behind, his legacy lasting only a few months after he left the White House. As the National Review notes, his is the “incredibly shrinking presidency.”

  1. President Obama was the President of divisiveness in this country for Two terms, eight long years. Never ever told the truth. Could not understand why people could not see him for what he was, and probably for what he still is. So sorry I feel that way, but what happened to our country during that time was the same as a sell-out to the Left-Wingers of this nation.

  2. Too little too late. He was a glorified fundraising puppet of the Chicago political machine, who was propped up by the corrupt government officials of the liberal Democrat Party, who was elected to Congress to further the corruption in The Swamp in Washington DC, who was put on the Liberal DNC ballot for the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections,because of a corrupt racially biased agenda being pushed down the Americans throat , so as not to be considered prejudice because of racism, who was still unqualified to address America’s important issues;(ie unemployment,economic concerns , rising medical costs, etc…). He was elected to corrupt government and the American way of life by destroying as much of the America’s economy as possible, which he attempted to do for 8 years. Some legacy huh? Now the liberals running against President Trump and his successful undoing of the Obama regime policies , are trying to outdo Obama’s ultra far left Bullsh’t! That’s not going to fly with me and the American voters the like what President Trump is continuous doing regardless of the liberals constant obstruction of him governing our Great USA. God Bless President Trump and America!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  3. Oh, what utter nonsense! President Obama is as popular and respected as ever, and by the vast majority considered the only real president we have had in quite a while, – thoughtful, informed, caring, and honest! Quite different from the current occupant of the WH, a lying, cheater, self-serving moron!

  4. obama did his best to ruin our country behind closed doors and congress let him get away with it. he committed 3 acts of treason and
    nobody does anything. the worst set of circumstances i have ever seen. the present group is worse with no idea what they are talking
    about and nobody does anything, so what has changed.

  5. He was an awful President he used the upper FBI and DOJ to do his dirty work! He had the most corrupt administration thank God he’ gone. He and Kerry need to put a cork in it they’re still opening their mouths is not smart. Kerry has broken the Logan act shut up about politics both of u! I pray to see justice on Obama and all he’s corrupt minions!! 🙏🇺🇸

  6. It makes too much sense. To be moderate or conservative in either major party and work together is what I pray we see.

  7. HE WAS THE WORST PRES. IN MY LIFE TIME. HE DIVIDED THIS COUNTRY SO BAD THAT IT WILL TAKE YEARS TO GET BACK. MY MED INS WAS GREAT NOW SINCE HE PUT THE SHIT IN YOU KNOW THE SHIT THAT HE FORCED ON US HE CAN STICK IT UP HIS ASS. WE HAD A GREAT COUNTRY TILL THE DEM O CRAFTERS TOOK IT OVER. THE DEBT HAS BEEN DOUBLED IN HIS 8 YEARS OF THROWING US UNDER THE BUS. IF YOU NEED MORE I CAN TELL YOU A HELL OF A LOT MORE. HE IS ONE OF THE REASONS I LEFT THAT ASS PARTY AFTER MORE THAN 50 YEARS.

  8. You misfits and liars, who are attempting to cast some sort of beef between President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party. Well, it’s not going to happen, since, President Obama has a 97 per cent approval in the Democratic party. And, world wide approval rating in the 70 per cent range. Now, who in their right minds would try and rid themselves of such popular member of the Democratic Party? President Obama is heavens above Trump as a man, a good person, a great Father, a magnificent husband, a world wide leader or respect, a great President, a special Orator, a country first Patriot, a constitutional scholar, a popular American, a man of intelligence and eloquence, a community organizer, a genuine scholar, a Nobel Prize recipient and more. Try and compare any those facts to Trump, Trump could not be in the game of consideration. That’s who President Obama is, and well respected man in many area’s of consideration, that is a fact.

  9. I do not blame President Trump for bombarding us with crazy Twitters insulting everybody. After all, since day one of his Presidency most Democrats, if not all, decided not to accept him as a legitimately elected President of the US. Big mistake. Now, seeing all these Candidates for the Presidency and their leftists ideas, I am scared. I did not vote for Trump but if one of the leftists to the left gets nominated, I will vote for Trump. Conservative Democrats like Biden, Klobuchar and Bennett are more moderate. Klobuchar is very intelligent. I would not mind voting for her if she is the nominee.

  10. The lying king ( DONALD TRUMP) is only doing every thing he can to try to tear down the good things that Obama tried to do for our country. Then you have the stupid idiots that follow trump like he was some kind of a god. They like trump do not care about the common person in America.

  11. Obama has no legacy and left the Country with nothing good long term. Trump’s economy is the exact opposite of Obama’s and far more successful because he reversed most of the major bad things Obama did to the Country. What’s funniest of all is that you defend his stance on immigration while saying it is the same as Trump’s and yet you berate Trump for being even more aggressive than Obama but doing the same types of things. Typical liberal hypocrites, whatever suits your agenda at the moment is OK. You folks are disgraceful.

  12. No matter what Dems are spewing about Obama, I have never and will forever think of Obama as the worst example of any President…he did and or allowed so much irreparable damage to our country it will be a long time before recovery…

  13. In fact he might have been a charismatic president but was in fact the worst President the United States ever had.

  14. I think Obama did a lot of lip service, but didn’t really follow through!! He was a “place holder president” allowing all the Muslims to get into our country and into office!! He was a black president, talk about racist, he never liked our country anyway! He wanted to change the Natioal Anthem for God’s sake!!

  15. THERE MORE BLAME ON HUSSEIN OBAMA, HIS THE MOST RACIST OF ALL.
    USING HIS COLOR OF HIS FACE A ND TO HIDE HIS %50 WHITE. BLOOD.
    MEDIA WAS HANDLING OBAMA AS A GLASS PERSON.
    DON’T BUMP HIM OR HE WILL CRACK TO PIECES .IRAN NUKE WAS A CON JOB.
    SO WAS THE EXCHANGE FOR A TURN COAT AND TREAD FOR 5 GITMO PRISONERS .
    COVER UP .
    SOME DAY IT WILL ALL COME OUT.
    OH ! HE SAID TO GO OUT AND PROTEST , WELL YOU SEE IT NOW, MORE COPS KILLING, AND ALL THIS KILLING GOING ON, IT’S THERE WAY OF PROTESTING WITH OBAMA ,GO OUT AND PROTEST.
    IT WILL NOT STOP TILL SOME DEMOCRAT HEADS GET’S KILLED.
    THE MORE YOU GO OUT TO PROTEST THE MORE ANGER THERE BE.

  16. well the obomas did more for illegals , muslims and terrorist , and did nothing for americans , so he has no legacy to begin with , they want to talk about a liar , fraud and a con man , well oboma was good at it , to this day no one knows where the kenyan freak was really born

  17. Glad to see obama gone! He never did offer anything good!
    Hope he will soon be out of our lives and never heard from again!
    What a loser he was and is!

  18. Obama did more to harm our nation than any modern president. He trounced the constitution, encouraged legislation from the bench and spearheaded a greater divide along political,racial, religious and economic lines. Then there was Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal, Benghazi murders, Israeli election meddling, destroyed free market healthcare and personal freedoms. His presidency culminated in denying ISIS as a threat to our nation and stabbed us in the back by supporting terrorist regimes with a 1.5 billion donation to Iran. How exactly did he help?

  19. The Obama Presidency should be left in the dust of failure. I only happened due to lies, deception, and race and to its roots a crime ridden, foul, racist, and socialist administration at best.
    Even today Barrack and Michele spew their hate for America and racist rants around the nation.

  20. Obama amplified racism in this country. He actually accomplished very little. He hurt our country on foreign affairs. He hurt our military. He was the worst President of my lifetime. Disgusting. How he was elected to a second term had to be illegal.

  21. He sent billions in cash to Iran supporting their terrorism…He sent our uranium to Russia with his Secretary of State receiving a $500,000,000 donation then from the Russians…His medical system has become so expensive that many can no longer afford it…He Supported other groups that have ties to terrorists…Name something he did that was positive…There is nothing???

  22. Many years ago, the Democratic party was a party that tried to represent the down-trodden and the American poor but sadly, they have now evolved into a party of hate mean-spirited and basically have embraced evil to the highest order because now all their energy, hatred, vilification, rejection and anything good that our Pres. Trump is trying to do for the country is not good enough, everything the Pres. tries to do is criticized and rejected. Instead of focusing on making the nation great, all their evil is directed at the Pres. and no matter what happens in the country, he is always blamed for everything. The President doesn’t stand a chance against these hate-mongers who prove over and over, they are not true Americans and their hearts are continually filled with hate for our elected Pres. by the people.

  23. Can the mainstream press conclude from the many critiques of Obama by the socialist wing of his Democratist party – a cadre of blind fools he, himself had inspired…facilitating their rise, like his own, from ignominy to undeserved recognition – that it is now o.k for the press to abandon its decade-long tacit agreement to never publish anything critical of Obama?
    Is this shameful, unabashed “political correctness” (a phrase and an attitude created nearly a century ago by the press) at last no longer to be foisted upon us?
    Can we now demand of the “4th Estate” that its denizens bring to light the many unsavory truths about Obama that they’ve long swept under the rug, thus denying to America the true ‘free press’ we’d always thought we had?

  24. It is about time the Democratic Party realized what a Muslim
    Terroists did to America, he should of been impeached or put in prison as a traditor or to have been deported! All our tax dollars he gave to ISiS and all the weapons he made to help them. And how we paid for his long experience vacations! He was a total disgrace to the USA and your party. Now he follows President Trump around in denial the citizens of the USAdo not want hm, no other EXpresident ever has done this,he thinks he is big stuff, he is a big loser and to get him out of your party can be a big plus for you!

  25. WELL THE OLD LADY NANCY PELOSI SAID ,LET’S PASS IT AND SEE WHAT’S IN IT.
    THEY WHERE LOOKING FOR THERE OWN POWER, SEE HOW RICH OBAMA BECAME IN 8 YEARS IN OFFICE, MULTI MILLIONAIRES SO DID BILL CLINTON AND OLD LADY NANCY PELOSI.

    THERE THERE FOR THERE OWN POWER AND GREED.

  26. My personal opinion is that Biden will be the Democratic party candidate for the presidency, but he will die when discussing with Donald Trump the matters than Obama and Him did not do in 8 years. The American people opened their eyes in spite of they have different opinions, but I consider that Donald Trump will be our President for four more years. 2020 will be for the Republican party again, and not precisely for the politic party that a lot of them in Washington DC looks more like Democrats than Republicans if not for Donald Trump that is working hard for to Make American Great Again and he did that in a lot of matters. Biden doesn’t a good candidate to confront Donald Trump in 2020. More than this, none Democrat candidates to the presidency in 2020 make a “good candidate” to confront to Donald Trump. Wait, and will see the map of united State Red again. God will bless America again.

  27. Gosh, slow much! Obama was always the ineffective and shadow President that is all smoke and mirrors. Talks the talk of you cared to listen and walks underground piling his bags full of cash. He was obviously in it for fame and fortune not to really make a difference because…well, he made no difference.

  28. For eight years this i person took this country down , ,so glad he is gone , , and the country has seen how out of the league of being
    President he was , a he was a pawn and a Manchurian president for the Radical Muslim s , andall his eight years shows how he brought this country down and divided it ,,, he will go down as the big embarrassment to our country !and color has nothing to do with it …

  29. President Obama has been the greatest president this country has had during my life time. He didn’t bring any baggage with him to the WH and his family did him proud. Michelle showed the country what a positive infulence a first lady could have. Not just good window dressing for her husband. Their children are amazing. The National Review is wrong. People like The Don and Turtle Head Mitch, vilify his legacy because they are both racists. What pathetic little men they are. President Obama will go down in history not only as the first president of color, but as a president respected by the majority of people in the USA, and most leaders and people world wide. The Don is an embarrassment to himself, the people of the USA, and most leaders and people world wide. Let’s hope we have a blue wave in 2020.
