…He thinks Obama should enter a bidding war against Putin to “save” Greece from domination by the bear after EU backs out. I wonder if the writer, and, or, Obama really think(s) the U.S. voters will allow Obama to give away even more of our hard earned dollars to entitlement-minded Greeks, after having given most of our hard earned dollars away already to the illegal immigrants crossing our southern border and poorly administered ACA, VA, City of Baltimore, etc., etc., etc. Don’t think of going there.

Obama’s main hope for a legacy would be the health care law, in that ACA could lead to something better over time. Pretty much everyone knows that ACA itself, however, is unsustainable and will need to be either fixed or replaced. On foreign policy, he could end up being remembered as the president that started the United States’ disastrous retreat from world leadership, depending on whether the next president can fix his mistakes. Will future historians forget how he looked away while Assad created millions of refugees and gassed his own people? Will they forget how he stood there, befuddled and confused, while Putin menaced Ukraine, threatened the American people with nuclear incineration and intimidated Europe?

He is more committed to doing what he wants, then listening to the rest of the world that looks on his deal with Iran with horror.

For example, in this statement, “Obama is entering into a massively important period of his presidency, with several major potential foreign policy objectives that will help to define his legacy,” I would say that Obama’s important period has passed. Many Americans believe his massively important period happened in 2009-2014 when he overlooked jobs growth and let the Federal Reserve pour Trillions of bogus dollars into the cash flow of the U.S. His failures in domestic policy will be remembered by all of the WWII baby boomers who had our retirement plans punctured by the 2008 crisis, then flat-lined by the neglect of the Obama administration.

Another example of my skepticism of this writer resides in his statement that, “If Greece defaults on its international debts and decides to leave the eurozone, the White House may have to play a greater diplomatic role in the continent to manage the political and economic fallout.” What idiot would want this administration to intrude into the Greek/Euro debate? This administration is the most divisive administration in a century. Does this writer want division? Forget the U.S. for at least 18 months. You’d be better off with the Icelandic government weighing in–if you can get them to step outside their comfort zone of success.

What would you know about the American worker. You GOP hillbilly tweakers and lard-asses have been on unemployment for 7 years.
