A blithering idiot recently said, “Last I checked, Obama did not bankrupt our country… We are not in a recession… We have strong job growth… and we have lower oil prices…. but yeah we have to constantly hear racist remarks, hes muslim, hes a terrorist… We are a LOT BETTER than we were in January 20 2009.”
Doubling the national debt from $9 trillion to more than $19 trillion constitutes bankruptcy. That happened THROUGHOUT Obama’s administration. That IS Obama’s legacy, along with countless other political and social gaffs that have resurrected racial tensions throughout America from their 1970s ashes, hobbled economic growth, and greatly harmed our nation as a whole. Those of you who believe otherwise are living in a dream world, one measured not by facts, rational thought, sound reasoning and good judgement, but by how sweet-sounding you can make your idiotic rhetoric sound to one another. You are, in every Biblical sense of the definition, fools. You cannot save Obama’s sinking legacy with the same rhetoric that doomed you from the start.
We are NOT better than we were back in January 20,2009. In fact, we were poised to exit a relatively minor recession very quickly. Obama’s blitheringly idiotic and rather Keynesian economic policies GREATLY prolonged our recovery by filtering the people’s money via taxes through the highly inefficient and grossly sub-par rate of return (about 70% below the break-even point of 1.0) instead of allowing the people to keep those funds and use them as they saw fit, rebuilding their businesses, paying rent – whatever was needed. Those funds, injected directly into the economy by millions of consumers making good, economic choices right for them has always had a FAR greater and more positive effect on the nation’s economy as a whole than ANY government funded program, much less a government-funded “recovery.”
In fact, your comment underscores the primary problem of Demoncraps and Libtards: You always claim every positive thing as a victory for your cause without having the SLIGHTEST freaking clue as to its source, much less the nature of cause an effect. I’ll bet if you found a penny in the street, you’d say, “Thanks, Obama!” but if you stepped in poo you’d blame it on Bush and Trump.” It’s idiots like you that got us into our current and horrific brink of disaster mess by voting for other idiots like Obama and the Demoncrap half of Congress who haven’t the slightest clue about economics, much less how to turn a nation a strong world competitor-partner.
I don’t know of a nicer way to put it than to say, “You Demoncraps and libtards suck. You don’t have slightest clue as to what you’re talking about or what you’re doing. You’ve made a horrible mess of things, and anything positive that’s happened over the last eight years has occurred IN SPITE OF your idiotic gyrations, not because of them. It’s time for you to SHUT UP and use the next eight years to study REALITY for a change. You tried idealism, and look where it got us? Yeah. So shut up, already.”
Meanwhile, the economy — including both the stock market as well as a huge influx of new jobs — surged away from Obama’s sinking legacy immediately AFTER Trump won. Obama’s fudged low unemployment FAILS to count any of the unprecedented number (>50%) of non-employed workers throughout the United States. Read up on the BLS website for U1-U6. None of them count workers who have given up working for jobs, often moving in with friends or family, because there are no jobs or other options. NOW we have jobs. NOW they have options. AFTER Obama, in the TRUMP era.
No, Trump is no God. He’s certainly not perfect, either. But as a highly successful multi-corporate Chief Executive Officer, Trump has repeatedly demonstrated he has what it takes — including the smarts — to lead the Chief Executive Office of these United States by hiring the right collection of experts who are not cronies and who stand the greatest probability of actually fixing many of America’s many problems.
You had your chance with Obama. He blew it.
It’s our turn, and if you would please, children, get and keep your God-damned fingers out of the pie.
In the meantime, here’s a little history lesson for the blithering idiots:
“Back in the 1960s and 1970s, Milton Friedman challenged the Keynesians over how monetary policy works. (John Maynard Keynes was dead, so did not directly argue the point.) Keynesians viewed stimulative monetary policy as helping the economy through lower interest rates, which increased spending by consumers and businesses.
“Friedman’s masterpiece study A Monetary History of the United States, 1867-1960 convinced him that they driver was money supply growth rather than interest rates.
“Friedman won the battle, and monetary policy was accepted by most economists as a money supply matter. During the recent recession, however some younger members of the profession [including Obama and his advisors] rediscovered old-fashioned Keynesianism.”
