Michael Moore: Obama will be remembered as 'first black president,' but 'that's it'

Michael Moore, director of Bowling for Columbine and other documentaries, doesn't think much of President Obama's record. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he said:

When the history is written of this era, this is how you'll be remembered: 'He was the first black president.' Okay, not a bad accomplishment, but that's it. That's it, Mr. Obama. A hundred years from now, 'he was the first black American that got elected president.' And that's it. Eight years of your life and that's what people are going to remember. Boy, I got a feeling, know you, that you'd probably wish you were remembered for a few other things, a few other things you could've done. [BuzzFeed]
