Consider the First Campaign of Obama for President. His theme almost a mantra was "I want to fundamentally change America" (or something similar. What did he accomplish in his eight years?
1. Obama Care (still active
2 Decreased standing of America in the World,
3. Economy in tatters,
4. More people on some form of government assistance tha ever before,
5. A drastically weakened military
6. infrastructure crumbling (Not necessarily his fault entirely),
7. DOJ and FBI leadership corrupted and ,
8. Intelligence community weaponized and used against opposition political party and it’s presidential candidate.

I would say that this is a fundamental change in America. It is not what most expected when he uttered the phrase, but it is what he intended. Look at the writings of Saul Alinsky and others like him. Obama was following the socialist playbook almost line for line.

    He may also have succeeded in waking up America against federal government socialism. Let's hear a song for backlash.

      He did wake up america which resulted in the election of Trump. He also exposed the entitled black culture and set the equality of the blacks back many years. He also made the whole idea of PC much more mainstream.

      As to anything GOOD he did, I am completely unable to find anything.

    No one seemed to want to know what he truly was. It was so apparent to anyone who looked into his past, what he was about. Sadly, most people took him as the first Black Potus, and let it go at that. Laziness, guilt, but no responsible behavior by he voters. The media and FBI gave him a pass. However, it was aasy enought to dig out the truth, if you suspected issues. Even FOX refused to touch it, until he was elected and in office. Only then did they question. Sad commentary, in the age of the Internet and so much information, how a Marxist, Muslim-loving, gay man could so dupe the willing public. He was never really Black, he was raised out of the country, then turned over to the tutoring of commie Charles Marshall Davis. He never lived in "the hood" and his fake ghetto jive talk made it apparent. He was an entitled little brat who was handed his education, or the certificates there of, and ushered into the White House.

      He was the icon for the 'entitled black", which set the cause of acceptance of blacks by a LOT. He saved his own ass by being black because of the guilt a lot of white people had for what their distant ancestors sis with slavery. Personally, I feel ZERO guilt for slavery, since I wasnt even around anywhere close to that time, and I didnt bring anyone's great grandaddy over by "tight pack".

      Blacks should just get over it and move on. Today's black people are not fundamentally better or worse than any other person in my view.

        I find it hard to havr slave guilt when my ancestors were marched on the Trail of Tears I find it disgusting that too many blacks do not even know the name Frederick Douglas and today Thomas Sowell. Blacks were treated like victims by a half white half black POTUS, because he could use them, and they let it happen. I paid my way through college myself, Michelle Obama got help for her skin color. It is time to say, enough, and let blacks be free, free of political manipulation by the likes of Obama.

          In s way the leftists are enslaving the black people AGAIN by bribing them with welfare crumbs that they never seem to escape from. The leftists are doing the same thing to whites and Hispanics too. No wonder they want open borders- the refugees are easier to dnslave

              But Mexico just elected a socialist president. They will be birds of a feather with California people and they will become a Venezuela 2.0. Other than the loss of pacific ports, the country would be better off without tgem

                Calif. will fall into the ocean, so they won't get much. In any case, the Snowflake US socialists may find they do not really lke their place under a real socialist regime, and will be calling foul.

                  I don’t think the socialists will give up the dream of how socialism will eliminate hardship, pain, unhappiness- if only done right!!

                    Somehow, when Obama salivates over a socialist utopia, I don't think he is thinking of those things, I think he is seeing his role as a more dictator type leader in power for life. Hillary can't even understand those with less money she says, so I don't think he really is thinking about making everyone's life utopian.

    Obama was very clear in his book and earlier speeches that the fundamental evil in the world was “white man” and his culture. He set out to correct that, and he did. I think that he brought the country to the brink of a civil war. It was discharged by the Trump election; Hillary’s may have sparked it. So, yes, Obama did accomplish his goals.

      YEAH. Its independence from PC, and the chains of modern socialistic slavery. I am sure that half of the country will see things differently, of course.

        In America, political correctness protects brutal, primitive, evil people and their behavior.
        And……as a result……political correctness has become the bane of sanity in our nation.
        Lest we offend somebody………….
        We have the “F” word, the “N” word, the “I” word and the “B” word.
        Instead of “Americans”, we have “African Americans” and “Arab Americans”. (but no “Polish-Americans” or "Irish Americans"))
        Instead of “black thugs”, we have “ Urban Center African Americans” victimized by White Privilege.
        Instead of “illegal aliens”, we have “undocumented immigrants”.
        Instead of “terrorists” we have, “unprivileged belligerents” (according to the Pentagon).
        Instead of “Islamic terrorism” we have “workplace violence”.
        Instead of “homosexuals”, we have “gays” and “lesbians” and combinations thereof.
        Instead of “aberrant sexual lifestyle”, we have “same sex marriage” and “gay pride week”…and NAMBLA.
        Instead of “devout religious belief”, we have litigated “bigot hate crime”.
        Instead of “global warming critics”, we have “deniers” who some want to prosecute.
        Instead of “arbitrary murder of unborn humans” we have “Pro-choice” and “women’s reproductive rights”.
        *Instead of “criminals” we have “justice involved individuals” (according to AG Loretta Lynch).

        UC Berkley wants to ban professors from using terms like “melting pot”, “the most qualified should get the job”, and “illegal alien”.
        The reason???? Such notions are racist….and speaking of racist….
        Thomas Sowell said: " If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have got you labelled as a radical 60 years ago, a liberal 30 years ago, and a racist today."

        I maintain that “Nobody in America has the right to not be offended”……but alas, the PC idiots disagree.

    Kinda Commie Obamee thought America had been too uppity in the past and needed to be taken down a peg to look like just another country.
    Such was his hope. Such was his change.
    That change would have lasted longer if The Evil Hag had broomed her way into office.
    But now that mean ole Magic Hair Tonic Ride trashes his precious legacy at every turn!

    The "fundamental change" that needed to take place was the abolition of slavery. That took place 150 years ago. Did Obama succeed in making a fundamental change? A very detrimental change, yes. But I don't call it "fundamental". As yet.

      I feel like a slave whenever I have to give in to a stupid regulation and write a check to the government.

      Now that I have to pay sales tax on internet purchases, I will have to cut them back by at least the tax rate here in nevada (8.15%)

    We were in danger of our FBI becoming a Gestapo, used primarily for political suppression. The Deep State has been developing that driving policy for some time, even before Obama, but the elite behind it became cocky and the wraps came off. If Hillary had been elected, you can be sure we would have seen "reeducation" camps being filled by conservatives, and more Waco-like raids on organizations.

    He succeeded too in putting Atlas Shrugged back on bestseller lists. Recent increase in consumer confidence--NOT the community organizer's achievement--is summoning more collectors of Rand's first editions, signed works, and manuscripts. Do contact me if you're interested in collecting. I've been collecting her for some 45 years, since she graciously signed for me after a FHF talk when I was 16. Michael archangels@att.net

    I hold no brief for Obama, but let's stick to what we can prove, or at least support with hard facts. There's no metric for America's standing in the world, so it's purely a matter of opinion that it decreased while Obama was in office.

      "1. Obama Care (still active)"

      Until it has been overturned is unConsitutional (should have been originally) or repealed by Legislature, this one is still true.

      "2 Decreased standing of America in the World,"

      I personally don't care what other nations think of us because none of them are free nations. There is one thing not in doubt, however, no one questions Trump's resolve in geopolitical matters. Obama was constantly backtracking over his own red lines. Our allies could not depend on us to keep our word and that certainly is a problem.

      "3. Economy in tatters,"

      The economy under Obama was one long recession. One can argue that it didn't start on his watch and might be partially correct, but Obama sure drug it out through his high taxes and the ACA. Forbes ran several articles on how businesses were just holding off until regulations stabilized or tax rates came down to expand and hire. That happened under Trump and a Republican Congress.
      One should also look at the underemployment rate under Obama, which skyrocketed and stayed near to 15% for much of his two-term stay.

      "4. More people on some form of government assistance tha ever before,"

      This one is certifiably true. There are more people on food stamps, more on medicare (if you include federal ACA), and more on SS Disability than ever before.

      "5. A drastically weakened military"

      This one can be evaluated in both perception or reputation and in readiness. Readiness as reported by the Joint Chiefs was down significantly under Obama and recruiting had fallen to an all time low. Combine this with Obama's inclusion of destabilizing elements (homosexuals) in combat crews, his retasking of military to "Muslim outreach" and his disastrous combat policies, these all contributed not only to bad morale among the troops, but record numbers refusing to re-enlist after a term and more combat troops in harm's way without clear Rules of Engagement.

      Perception can be evaluated in the number of challenges to our military, and not just from radical Islamic groups. Remember, Russia's invasion of Crimea happened on Obama's watch and I can't help but recall his statements to Medvedev "Tell Vladimir I'll have more flexibility after the election." China also built an airfield out of an atoll in the South China Sea, threatening many other US-friendly nations in the area such as the Philippines.

      "6. infrastructure crumbling (Not necessarily his fault entirely),"

      This one I will challenge. Every politician since Eisenhower's introduction of the federal highway system has been harping on this one, and its garbage. Most of the "crumbling infrastructure" isn't part of the Federal system, but rather the States are responsible - especially those blue States like California who don't perform their inspections (Oroville Dam, anyone?)

      I would also point out that the Deepwater Horizon oil spill can also be indirectly attributed to Obama. Under GW Bush, that rig had been cited several times for dangerous practices - exactly the same kind of practices that led to the spill. Under Obama, those same inspections now turned up glowing reports.

      "7. DOJ and FBI leadership corrupted and ,"

      This one is certainly the case as is now being exposed nearly every day in the non-mainstream news. We know that there was an ongoing conspiracy to try to discredit Trump through bogus accusations all created by the same corrupt FBI officials who intentionally botched the Hillary Clinton email scandal. We also know they abused the FISA warrant process in order to spy on Trump's presidential campaign.

      We could also go into Obama's weaponization of the bureaucracies such as the IRS (denying or slow-rolling tax-exempt status for conservative political organizations), the EPA (the Waters of the US rule), and even Borders and Customs (the Gibson Guitar nonsense) - not to mention the most corrupt Department of Justice (first under Holder of Fast and Furious infamy) and then Loretta Lynch (who's meeting with Bill Clinton during an ongoing investigation into Hillary was clearly a conflict of interest).

      "8. Intelligence community weaponized and used against opposition political party and it’s presidential candidate."

      This one has been happening for decades, but it reached all new levels under Obama.

      PS - I didn't vote you down, but in the future you'd do better to provide some backup for your objections.
