I'm really curious, since our current educational system teaches revisionist history, do you think we'll ever see an accurate accounting of what Obama has done to the U.S.? I'm thinking it will be done by historians from other countries.

Well, it will have to be written by others as we will not exist.
The Roman Empire, Egypt, Incas, Myans, etc. have their histories, and specifically their demise, examined from abroad.

Ya, I agree, but I'm thinking more in terms of during our kids or grand kids time. More like the studies of Russian Czars, Nazi Germany, Communist China, or even Castro's Cuba or Chavez's Venezuela.
There's just so much white washing of what's going on right now, I wonder how it will be recorded 15, 25, 50 years down the road. Will Obama be portrayed as the great Satan or or will he be revered like Lincoln, LBJ, or Kennedy?

Not even as wonderful as Carter, who "USED TO BE" the worst American president in the last century. Definitely no Lincoln since this separates them 180 degrees.

Probably depends on how much he gets away with, and for how long?
coupled with my observation above, it also depends on if we are an intact Nation when and if the smoke clears?
