The truth is, he inherited a deeply divided country. And from the very start, almost every thing he did that the Right disagreed with (which was almost everything) was characterized not as “wrong” but as “unAmerican” or “Islamist” or “socialistic” or “Marxist”. The political Right is 90% responsible for the division we have today.
