Let it be known that Michael Moore is not a fan of President Obama.I have some (admittedly premature) thoughts of my own, but I'd rather hear yours first. Weigh in below.
In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter from the Toronto International Film Festival, the Academy-Award winning director was asked about the current state of Detroit and from there, dissects what the president’s legacy will be. His prognosis? Not great.
“I think Obama…he’s done many, many good things,” he said. “But he’s been a huge disappointment. I really think somebody should say to him, that when the history is written of this era, this is how you’ll be remembered. He was the first black president. That’s it. A hundred years from now, he was the first black American that got elected president. That’s what people will remember.”
Question: How will history view the Obama presidency? How will you personally view it, based on your expectations when he was elected?
