Obama's Legacy of Shame - by Stephen Lendman

He sold out to Wall Street, war profiteers, and other corporate crooks.

Promising change after eight Bush/Republican years, Obama delivered betrayal. 

With congressional Democrats, he exceeded Bush's harshness, lawlessness, belligerency, and public trust betrayal. 

He violating every major domestic and foreign issue promise made. As a result, he's been complicit in:

  • looting the nation's wealth, wrecking the economy, and consigning growing millions to impoverishment without jobs, homes, savings, social services, or futures; 

  • giving Wall Street crooks greater money power, disguised as financial reform;

  • waging multiple imperial wars and occupations, spending more on militarism than the rest of the world combined at a time America has no enemies;

  • belligerently ousting Honduran President Manuel Zelaya and Libya's Gaddafi; 

  • promoting regime change in Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Lebanon, and elsewhere against independent leaders, while continuing support for the world's most ruthless, corrupt tyrants;

  • presiding over a bogus democracy under a homeland police state apparatus;

  • continuing Bush's worst lawless policies; adding more of his own, including indefinite detentions without charge, and deploying Special Forces death squads in over 120 countries to kill targeted suspects, including Americans;

  • targeting whistleblowers, dissenters, Muslims, Latino immigrants, and environmental and animal rights activists called terrorists;

  • illegally spying on Americans more aggressively than Bush;

  • destroying decades of hard won labor rights;

  • waging class war to destroy Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, public and private pensions, as well as other New Deal and Great Society gains;
