Maybe because Hillary Clinton was part of Obama’s cabinet, many consider her as his successor. In fact, she has expressed openly her support for the current administration.
However, Hillary recently Tweeted about unemployed and complained about the lack of jobs for young minorities criticizing her ally Obama.
When you dig deeper, you see that young people of color have faced even greater challenges. That has to change. pic.twitter.com/8mpMkHn2sH

Citizens took the opportunity to critique her and the current administration.
victims of Obama's failed economic policies. Expect those numbers to increase under HRC.

You mean after nearly 8 years of your buddy Obama, things haven't gotten better? How strange. https://t.co/etBvzgYXV7

Sadly, those complaints are not baseless.
An article in The Wall Street Journal mentioned that:
Yet not once in the last seven years has annual economic growth ever reached 3%. Average real per capita income grew … seven times faster during the Reagan recovery and 10 times faster during the Kennedy/Johnson recovery than during the Obama recovery.
Another article published in the National Review stated that:
During Obama’s tenure, the percentage of black Americans struggling below the poverty line has advanced, according to the most recent Census Bureau data, from 25.8 in 2009 to 26.2 in 2014 — up 1.6 percent.
Hopefully, voters realize that things are not great as she claimed with Obama, that improvements are necessary and a “third term” with more of the same (which is what she’s promising!) won’t cut it.
