Anyone that says they're proud of Obama's presidency is lying. They don't want to admit that they voted for the worst president since WWII.

Pretty much sums it up. His presidency has failed working Americans and emboldened the enemies of this country. But hey, he is probably getting pretty good at sinking a 10-foot putt.
