Two headlines that perfectly embody Obama’s legacy

Two headlines that perfectly embody Obama’s legacy

We couldn’t help but notice that there are certain things that President Obama defines as critical to his legacy, while others he brushes off. Those things he defines as important are seemingly absurd to the rest of America, while by contrast, the things he ignores are of monumental importance.

Nowhere is this more evident than in two headlines, which capture the Obama years better than any lengthy analysis might:

“Military experts agree Obama’s ISIS strategy not aggressive enough” — Breitbart, Nov. 20, 2015

“Obama appointee to activists: White House ‘aggressively engaged’ in transgender fight” — Daily Caller, Apr. 25, 2016

That’s right: The commander-in-chief of the United States of America isn’t being aggressive when it comes to terrorists trying to kill Americans but is uber-aggressive when it comes to allowing men access to women’s bathrooms.

To further drive home the point, here are dueling ledes for each of the articles:

Breibart: Friday, Politico magazine published the views of eight military experts, ranging from retired generals to think tank experts. Notably, not one of the experts seems to think Obama’s current approach to defeating ISIS is sufficient. [Emphasis added]

Daily Caller: A top Obama appointee in the Department of Education personally assured a group of LGBT activists that the White House is “aggressively engaged” in the fight to allow transgender students use whichever bathroom they please at school. [Emphasis added]

Our president is fighting the wrong war.
