Review Tuesday: The Worst President in History: The Legacy of Barack Obama by Matt Margolis & Mark Noonan

 The Worst President in History: The Legacy of Barack Obama by [Margolis, Matt, Noonan, Mark]

The Worst President in History: 
The Legacy of Barack Obama 
by Matt Margolis & Mark Noonan 
Margolis and Noonan explore TWO HUNDRED REASONS why Barack Obama is the worst president in American history.
I just finished this book this morning and HAD to share it with my readers ASAP!  

When the USA elected Barack Obama to the presidency I sincerely hoped he would accomplish even half of the amazing things he promised to bring to the country that, was then, dealing with the effects of the financial meltdown. During his years as president he made it clear that he had no intentions of following through with most of his promises except for the threat of the Affordable Care Act. From my point of view I have only seen disaster. Despite the misleading unemployment numbers, more than one third of the population is either unemployed or underemployed. We currently have the lowest participating workforce since the 1970s. The average family income has decreased. Average family wealth has decreased. Welfare, food stamps, medicaid, and general poverty levels are at the highest levels since it started being recorded. 

That's only one portion of Obama's vast failure as President of the USA. This book goes into detail and cites sources for TWO HUNDRED reasons why Obama should be considered the worst president this country has ever had to endure. Granted, there are some reasons given that even the authors say are fairly petty and some that are seen through partisan eyes, but the majority of the book is based on law, interviews, and articles. With over 1,000 footnotes, the citations are pretty heavy and take up 40% of the book. 

I HIGHLY recommend this book to all readers BEFORE the election. If you like what Obama has done (after what the authors unearthed after the media buried it all) then you should vote for Hillary because she was complicit in many of his misdeeds and can count on four more terrible years under another Clinton Administration. However, if the words on the pages enrage you like they should, then you need to vote against the Democratic Party that has abused Americans and America and her allies for the last eight years. 

Excellent book! Infuriating!
