As those on the right generally have a hard time listing even one of Barack Obama’s “great” accomplishments, FOX News recently took to the streets to gain some insight on what we may be missing. Sadly, as it turns out, the issue isn’t partisan, as Americans across the board struggled when it came to the question.
The issue was brought up on a segment of Watters’ World during The O’Reilly Factor, when Jesse Watters hit the streets of Baltimore to ask a simple question: Can you name a single accomplishment from President Barack Obama?
As one would imagine, the results were less that satisfying, portraying a disconnected and ignorant population. Rather than admit they didn’t know, some tried to piece an answer together – but failed miserably to do so.
“Can I get back to you?” one man sarcastically said.
“Having [an] in-shape wife, I guess?,” another chimed in.
One woman, clearly not in touch with reality, decided to evade the question entirely by going on the offensive and asking, “Are you asking me this because I have blonde hair?” Sadly, that wasn’t the most bizarre of responses.
After being asked, some said things like Obamacare, taking out Osama Bin Laden, and “we haven’t really heard too much about terrorism.”
When the individual that responded with the latter was asked about ISIS, he simple responded, “What’s ISIS?”
One tattooed man suggested that Obama’s greatest accomplishment was that he brought “our troops home,” to which a quick-witted Watters replied, “I think the terrorists are pretty happy about that.”
Our Founding Fathers would be rolling over in their graves if they saw the American people this complacent and oblivious. Those men put the power in the hands of the American people, yet the “people” are so self-centered, they can’t see what’s going on around them, as they willingly and carelessly relinquish that control. What sad times we live in.
