What will the next President inherit from Obama?

If we’ve heard it once, we’ve heard it a thousand times since Obama was elected – that every problem he faced as president was inherited from Bush. From Bush’s wars to Bush’s recession, every problem in America, and around the world for that matter, was all Bush’s fault.

Well, what goes around comes around, and as the presidential campaign season heats up, the big question that needs to be answered by the Democratic presidential nominee will be: What problems will they be “inheriting” from Obama?

For the fun of it, let’s assume Hillary wins the Democratic nomination. Just how will she answer the “inheritance” question after eight years of an Obama White House?

Will Hillary say she’s inheriting the “Obama ISIS War,” call Obama a “War Monger,” demand he be stripped of his peace prize,” and say her priority as president is to end “Obama’s Illegitimate War” and bring all the troops home immediately? Will she say she’s inheriting the “Obama Economy,” call it “Obama’s War on the Middle Class,” and promise to fix it before it turns into “Obama’s Depression?” Will she say she’s inheriting “Obama’s Debt,” call Obama “un-patriotic” for running it up to $7 trillion, and promise to cut it in half before the “Obama Bubble” bursts?

Will she say she’s inheriting an “Obama Economy,” that has created the most economically divided America ever, call Obama a “One-Percenter,” and say “Obama’s Redistribution Doctrine” has done nothing but spread the wealth from the middle class into the pockets of his one-percenter buddies? Will she say she’s inheriting “Obama’s Gas Prices” that have more than doubled since Obama’s election, call Obama the “Big Oil President,” and say he cares more about “Big Oil” profits than he does the middle class or the environment?

Will she say she’s inheriting “Obama’s War on Women,” call Obama a sexist and misogynist who is grabbing women by their hair and pulling them back by not giving them equal pay with men in the Obama White House? Will she say she’s inheriting “Obama’s War on Minorities,” call Obama an Uncle Tom racist, and promise to close the gap between black and white unemployment that has steadily increased since Obama was elected? Will she say she’s inheriting “Obama’s Foreign Fantasy Doctrine” and promise to fix it before it blows-up into “Obama’s WWIII?”

Seriously, you know there’s not a snowball’s chance that Hillary would ever use any of these “Obama Inheritance” issues during her campaign for president. So how would Hillary really answer those questions after eight years of an Obama presidency that has left such a wake of problems? She’ll simply fall back on the standard Hillary defense she’s used her entire political career:

“With all due respect, the fact is, these issues are real, troubling and ongoing; but are they because of the Obama administration’s policies, or a do-nothing obstructionist Republican Congress - what difference, at this point, does it make?”
