Was Obama's Presidency Actually A Failure?

Closing arguments for the Obama years. 

With the final days of Obama's presidency coming to an end this week, his years in office are inevitably being placed under scrutiny, and it's not at all looking rosy for the outgoing president. In fact, a new book published this week, claims that "Obama’s supporters have experienced (his presidency) as a continuous disappointment.” 

Those supporters, the book states, can't fail to have noticed that “for most of Obama’s term, wage gains were largely confined to the rich.” Or that “The administration’s planning in Libya clearly failed” or “It is certain that the actual outcome (of Obama’s Syria policy) was disastrous.”
