Rolling Stone Named President Obama One Of America’s Most Historically Successful Presidents
Writer Paul Krugman beautifully breaks down why all the Obama-bashing is ill-suited and “misguided”. Critics from all angles tear apart the Obama administration but in the Rolling Stone article, Krugman wants to come to the defense of Barack Obama, even crowning him as one of our most successful presidents.
In the article, Krugman breaks down Obama’s presidency into six parts: financial reform, health care, social, economical and environmental changes and national security.
Here’s an excerpt from the Rolling Stone article written by Paul Krugman:
In Defense of Obama
The Nobel Prize-winning economist, once one of the president’s most notable critics, on why Obama is a historic success
Obama faces trash talk left, right and center – literally – and doesn’t deserve it.
Despite bitter opposition, despite having come close to self-inflicted disaster, Obama has emerged as one of the most consequential and, yes, successful presidents in American history. His health reform is imperfect but still a huge step forward – and it’s working better than anyone expected. Financial reform fell far short of what should have happened, but it’s much more effective than you’d think.
