The Barrack Obama has been such a dissapointing Presidency. Apart from taking out Bin Laden what is the other significant achievement has the Obama presidency registered that will define is legacy? He is left Africa the way he found it, he has not helped the black communities in America's inter-cities, he has not fixed the problems in Iraq , Lybia, Syria ,Grecee etc; he has not fixed the un-employement problem in America which largely cost his party the presidency, the obamacare is in a shambles. He has left America more divided than he found it and remember he was elected by majority Americans irrespective of race and colour.So generally ,apart from being the first black USA president ,Obama was generally a no show!

Idont beleive in polls .there are all cooked up to manipulate voters. But Trump's resounding win has a lot to do with the Obama presidency .Many Americans felt betrayed by the obama adminstration and perhaps that expalins why they didnt get out the black and latino vote as expected . Obama , throughout his presidency tried to please so many by playing safe and ended up eroding the democratic party base which has ultimately cost his party the presidency and both houses of representatives -the congeress and the senate . lessons for our local party strategists and campaign managers- ,never, ever ignore your traditional base or take your supporters for granted the way the clinton campain did by not campaigning in hitherto traditional blue states. For one to win you must always consolidate your base and play to your strength .
