Dr Alf is right to flag this NYT editorial but there’s another view.
President Obama is a lame duck President who did nothing to reduce the prison population in the first 4 years of his presidency, nothing to close down Guantanamo Bay, and nothing during the 3 years of this presidency in this regard.
As Dr Alf may know, President Obama has spent a fortune of American taxpayers money on stopping lawyers and others who dispute the authenticity of his birth certificate from impeaching him and removing him from office.
He dithers on Foreign affairs and refuses to take effective action against ISIS against the advice of his own generals. He is at best a disappointment and matters he failed to address will have to be dealt with by others.
He and those who support him need to weigh the future consequences when considering his so called “legacy” and people will need to choose a leader of the “Free World” to succeed him who is actually up to the job.
