Well, he already took MLK Day off and skipped doing a community service/volunteer project.

Does meeting with a member of MLK's family make up for? NAH. The damage has already been inflicted. Now we're up to around 24 representatives refusing to go to the inauguration for various reasons.

Don't forget Solyndra and the green energy/clean tech revolution not exactly taking off as planned in the US.

Wait what? Those examples don't make sense, and even if they did, wouldn't be in the same universe as what Jenks mentioned.

Renewables had astronomical growth under Obama. And Solyndra is just a terrible Republican talking point. Republicans used Solyndra to argue the loan program was terrible...but 98% of the loans administered through that program were repaid. Solyndra was one of the few failures. It'd be like arguing that Reagan did terribly in the '84 election because he lost Minnesota.

I was just joking.

Republicans ALWAYS bring up Solyndra, school choice/labor unions, e-mails, Benghazi, birth certificates....the same talking points.

Now, all things considered, we're not really close to going electric with automobiles in mass production, but that's largely attributable to much cheaper gasoline prices, and partially related to the fracking argument, where the US is now a net exporter of energy.

It's not like Obama could force everyone to put up solar panels, anyway...like in the late 70's when Carter was president. And the budgetary resources (and customer demand) for high speed rail and magnetic levitation trains just isn't there. At least not YET.

Trump national security spokeswoman Monica Crowley to forgo post amid plagiarism charges

QUOTE
Monica Crowley, recently appointed by President-elect Donald Trump to a key national security communications job, said Monday that she would relinquish the post amid multiple allegations of plagiarism.

Crowley, who has been named senior director of strategic communications at the National Security Council, said in a statement that “after much reflection,” she had decided to remain in New York and “will not be taking a position in the incoming administration.”


Crowley was found to have heavily plagiarized her PhD dissertation.

Some people are really following President p****-graber's lead

(autoplay video at the link, why on earth does anyone still do that?)
Politician Arrested for Pinching Woman’s Genitals ‘Said He No Longer Had to Be Politically Correct’

QUOTE
von Keyserling “reached in from behind to place his hand between her legs and pinch her in the groin area,” according to the police arrest warrant. She threatened to hit him if he tried to pinch her again, and he replied, “It would be your word against mine and nobody will believe you,” according to the warrant.

Police say that the incident was caught on security camera and that the footage is consistent with the events the woman described.

Bill Clinton was treated the same way by his opponents. As was Bush. As is every President.

And frankly, Obama has been given serious passes for major f*** ups too, like the VA scandal (still ongoing!), Fast and Furious, Libya, the continuation of Gitmo and the drone program, etc. etc. Yeah, he had to deal with the birther nosense, and that's fair, but I think that's about the only race/religion specific crap he had to deal with.
