Something like this: "Barack Obama broke the race barrier by being the first African-American (or whatever PC term is acceptable then) president of the United States. Obama faced many challenges as president: an American war in the Middle East, a collapsed housing market, and a sluggish economy. Obama's great triumphs were the passage of his health care plan, euphemistically referred to as "Obamacare." However, this victory was a Pyrrhic one in that it failed to increase the quality of care, and raised the cost of healthcare and health insurance.
In foreign policy, Obama's great political victory was the killing of Osama bin Laden, the mastermind and financial power behind Al Qaeda and the attack on America on September 11, 2001. However, Obama's policy of "leading from behind" was perceived by belligerent states like Iran and North Korea as weakness. In the end, these states were a menace to peace and stability throughout Asia. Obama's weak foreign policy also resulted in China's increased hegemony in the region.
Culturally, America revisited Jimmy Carter's "malaise" as Obama continued to promote the culture of death by advocating abortion-on-demand, declining quality in state healthcare, and the promotion of gun-control which had the effect of diminishing both the quality and the sanctity of life.
For those that voted for President Obama for racial reasons, there was little dissuading them that he was one of America's great presidents. Given that for most of these people, their IQ was lower than the average SPF number on a bottle of sunblock, this was understandable. However, for the most part, President Obama's policies never allowed him to surmount the challenges presented to him by the previous administration. His approach of regularly apologizing for America made many wonder why he ever wanted to be its chief executive in the first place."
