Aside from ObamaCare, most of President Obama’s legacy was achieved through executive fiat.
Except for the Nobel Peace Prize. And even the guy responsible for that has had second thoughts
The Iran Nuclear deal would have had staying power as a treaty with two thirds U.S. Senate approval. But Obama couldn’t get that. So he settled for the authority of a narrative by aspiring novelist Ben Rhodes.
Here’s Dan Henninger in the WSJ
The Iran nuclear deal is just that—a deal Mr. Obama did with the mullahs, Russia, Germany, France, the U.K. and China, with no formal instrument of ratification.
And the same goes for the Paris Climate Accord:
The Paris climate agreement is an “accord” with so little domestic support that even some Democrats would have voted “no” if Mr. Obama had submitted it to the Senate for approval.

Not that Trump has any better luck getting the approval of Congress. But then, he doesn’t need it. He’s unraveling the Obama Legacy with the same pen and phone
Obama used to create it.
