Obama thinks he’s done a great job as president. He patted himself of the back during his final press conference yesterday. Of course, if the American people agreed with him, Hillary Clinton might have won the election.
Here’s what Obama said, via the Washington Free Beacon:
Obama: America Is Stronger and More Respected Today
President Obama claimed at a press conference Friday that America is stronger and more prosperous now than when he first took office in 2009.
While discussing his foreign policy legacy with reporters at the White House, Obama mentioned that troop levels in Iraq are lower than when he entered office, Osama bin Laden is dead, and he obtained a deal with Iran to curtail its nuclear program. He did not address the growth of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria or Iran’s continued support of terrorism in his response.
“Almost every country on Earth sees America as stronger and more respected today than they did eight years ago,” Obama said. “In other words, by so many measures, our country is stronger and more prosperous than it was when we started.”
“It’s a situation that I’m proud to leave for my successor,” Obama continued.

Has he lost his mind?
And notice how the media lets him get away with saying things like this.
