Barack Obama’s Long Game

Barack Obama’s Long Game – Politico Story

A story featured both at Politico and Huffington Post making the case for Barack Obama as a transformative president.  The last few months have been an extremely interesting to say the least.  Cuba, Iran, marriage equality, healthcare victory in the Supreme Court, and commuting the sentences of non-violent offenders, are just a few of the things I think will be looked fondly upon.  I am highly skeptical of his trade deal.  I also have always been critical of other aspects of his foreign policy since the beginning, especially what this country has done with drones in recent history.   I think he could have done more on Climate Change early on, though I think he has done what is possible this term, especially considering the Congress he is dealing with.  However, although I think one can be both pleased with and critical of something at the same time, I think the good outweighs the bad when it is all stacked together at this point, especially considering where we were when we started.
