The Obama Presidency in a nutshell

An organization that nobody wants or likes screws up horribly and then walks away telling ordinary, non-politically connected citizens to go fuck themselves while making sure the people who screwed up get paid bonuses.

The Obama administration exits with an ugly environmental blot on its record after failing to hold itself financially accountable for the Gold KingMine spill, but Republicans are hoping President-elect Donald Trump will clean up the mess. 
In one of its final moves before President Obama leaves office, the Environmental Protection Agency refused to pay 73 claims totaling $1.2 billion filed by tribes, farmers, river-rafters and local governments from the August 2015 wastewater spill, citing sovereign immunity under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA). 
Western lawmakers were floored by Friday’s decision, pointing to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy’s numerous assurances that the agency would take responsibility for the damage caused by the EPA-led crew, which unleashed 3 million gallons of mustard-colored contamination into the Animas and San Juan rivers and three states.

I think that's just about the perfect metaphor for Obama and his administration.  Screw up everything, refuse to take responsibility, shit all over the citizens and then walk away.

I cannot tell you how happy I am that Obama is finally leaving.  Even though the damage he's done will never be repaired, and may actually lead to a civil war, I don't have to put up with being insulted by a moronic Marxist shitwad every day anymore.
