Millions of books about Obama were sold after his election and at the time of inauguration. His departure as president will be as emotion-filled as his taking office, and Legacy documents his transformative accomplishments.
The evidence indicates he has been tremendously successful and effective by objective measures. On economic indicators alone, he is credited with the longest streak of job growth in U.S. history, a two-thirds reduction in the federal budget deficit, and the rebounding of the stock market to record highs following the record lows of the recession under his predecessor.
His victories have come against a backdrop of criticism and sometimes open defiance from conservatives, lack of cooperation in Congress and racially tinged commentary in traditional and social media.
Through it all, the president who campaigned on a slogan of “Yes, We Can!” has persevered in his determination to make a difference and left an indelible mark on American politics and the world, emerging with dignity and poise.
Legacy features short entries listing President Obama’s accomplishments followed by capsule analysis, and quotes from the President’s speeches throughout. Download and start listening now!
