Obamanation: Crash Course US History #47

In which John Green teaches you about recent history. By which we mean VERY recent history.

John covers the end of George W. Bush’s administration presidency of Barack Obama (so far).

Some people would say, “It’s too soon to try to interpret the historical importance of such recent events!”

To those people we answer, “You’re right.”

Nonetheless, it’s worthwhile to take a look at the American we live in right now as a way of looking back at how far we’ve come.

Anyway, John will teach you about Obama’s election, some of his policies like the Affordable Care Act, the 2009 stimulus, and the continuation of the war on terror.

If you still can’t reconcile a history course teaching such recent stuff, just think of this one as a current events episode.
