When you don’t have many domestic policy accomplishments to note, and your foreign policy largely involves ignoring anything important, a year-end review of your “best moments” will be slim, indeed.
Which, of course, explains why this year, in the White House’s 2015 retrospective, they listed “joining Twitter” as one of President Obama’s top events. Now, as the President’s social media reach has expanded, and at least a chunk of his free time dedicated to spouting his every thought in 140 characters or less, the White House knows it has achieved at least something: simply avoiding the President’s speeches and press conferences in traditional media will not completely erase him from your daily life.
“Americans also shared in some more personal moments with the President, like when he walked across the Edmund Pettus Bridge 50 years after the first marches from Selma to Montgomery,” the blog post said. “Or when he sang ‘Amazing Grace’ in honor of those who lost their lives to gun violence in Charleston, South Carolina.”
“Or when he launched his own Twitter and Facebook accounts to share personal messages on stories that touched millions across the country and reflected who we are as a people,” it said.
“Whether it’s the best posts on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube or unforgettable moments with the First Lady or the Vice President, you’ll find all of the best ways to remember 2015 right here,” the post continued. “So take a look back at some of the most memorable moments of the year that meant so much for the American people, for President Obama, and for all of us here at the White House.”
Obama’s historic Iran nuclear weapons deal, which has since been acknowledged as “unbinding,” and his role in ending global climate change went curiously unmentioned. Maybe they’re saving those accomplishments for his biopic.
