Outgoing President Barack Obama: Assessing and Saying Goodbye

US & World News

[Obama] stumbled badly overseas. He botched attempts to thwart Syria’s Bashar Assad and failed to anticipate the rise of Islamic State, forcing the U.S. right back into a Middle Eastern war that reignited terrorism. The president failed to establish a working relationship with Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu and looked virtually powerless against Vladimir Putin’s assertions of power in Ukraine and Syria.

Obama can claim other notable achievements, at least in our book. He pushed through the Affordable Care Act, legislation that arguably has saved thousands of lives by now. His administration negotiated the Iran nuclear deal, which beat starting yet another war. He made civil rights a priority for the Department of Justice, and he gave younger undocumented immigrants a reprieve from the threat of deportation.
