The first one wasn't great shakes either

Jim Geraghty: "Obama’s Second Term Was a Complete Failure."  And poor Hillary couldn't distance herself from it.

What a bum. Imagine if he'd been any good at all. His outgoing approval rating might be 80%.

In about 18 months, look for Obama (sitting pretty in that historical Bush-Trump sandwich) to hit 115%.

Obama? Who's that?

"President Four-Putt," apparently. No relation to his successor, President Four Daily Briefings Per Month.

And thank heaven that Four-Putt attended those briefings so he could do nothing:

"Mr. Obama was briefed regularly on all this, but he made a decision that many in the White House now regret: He did not name Russians publicly, or issue sanctions. There was always a reason: fear of escalating a cyberwar, and concern that the United States needed Russia's cooperation in negotiations over Syria.

"We'd have all these circular meetings," one senior State Department official said, "in which everyone agreed you had to push back at the Russians and push back hard. But it didn't happen."

He was probably meeting with LeBron or GloZell that day.
