If You Like Your Legacy, You Can Keep Your Legacy?

The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer’s Iran deal was an agreement struck by presidential fiat.  Yesterday, it was rescinded by presidential fiat.
President Trump’s decision to torpedo the flawed deal keeps faith with his campaign promise and has infuriated the usual critics.  “Leading from behind” and “strategic patience” are not part of President Trump’s lexicon.
Ben Shapiro noted, “Obama left the Middle East a smoking wreckage heap ─ a situation so grim that even Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan have been forced to ally with Israel to allay fears of an Iranian regional takeover. Obama and his staff lied repeatedly to the American people about the Iran deal ─ and they continue to lie. When [former Secretary of State John] Kerry says that the deal will ‘empower Iran's hardliners,’ he is repeating an outright fabrication: The hardliners are in charge of the government and the deal strengthened them. When [Samantha] Power speaks as though Obama alleviated the possibility of Iran's nuclear program, she's lying, too: The deal explicitly paved the way for an Iranian nuclear program free and clear of consequences from the international order. When Obama speaks as though our Middle East allies were pleased by the deal, he's lying: They all opposed it, and they're all celebrating its end.”
An Op-Ed published in The Washington Examiner declared, “Since the deal was struck, [Iran] has built up its military, imprisoned Americans, tested ballistic missiles, continued to finance terrorism and increased its interference in Syria. In Yemen, Iran violated an arms embargo and is believed to have allowed Houthi rebels to obtain missiles, one of which was fired into Saudi Arabia.” 
“Ever since a desperate Obama started negotiating the deal, Washington has been held hostage by fear that Iran could withdraw, thus limiting the options of policymakers. So, a deal that was supposed to constrain Iran instead hobbled America.”
“We’re still learning all of the ways that Obama myopically subverted our national interests in first seeking and then propping up his deal. Last year, a detailed report found that ‘in its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States.’”
“Despite all of these concessions, the deal would only limit Iranian nuclear activities for a little over a decade. Even if Iran were to follow every letter of the deal, it could use the next decade to build its conventional military and develop ballistic missiles and then ramp back up its nuclear program, giving it both nuclear material and the means to deliver it. The bombshell Israeli intelligence find announced last week demonstrated that Iran not only lied to the international community about its past nuclear weapons development, but also kept all its research, presumably, for use at a later date. The deal relies on self-inspection of Iranian military sites such as Parchin, despite evidence of past nuclear activity.”
“In his speech, one of the best made about and to Iran by an American president, Trump put the world on notice that the U.S. would no longer be hamstrung by a bad deal. 'America will not be held hostage to nuclear blackmail.'” 
An obviously distraught worshipper of the “messiah”, CNN’s Jim Acosta, tweeted:
The White House Communications Office is now responsible for insuring there is an ample supply of Kleenex® for Obama’s fanboy at each press briefing.
