Did You "Suffer" Under The Obama Administration?

Post by Lurker on Thu Feb 23, 2017 12:30 am

One of many, many infuriating parts of having Trump as the President is the insufferable smugness of conservatives. When they’re not telling you to “suck it up, snowflake” or trying to sell you fake news, they’re gloating: “We suffered for eight years under that tyrant Obummer. Now it’s your turn.”

One man, Scott Mednick had enough with his Republican acquaintances and penned this powerful response:

“I am surprised you would wish suffering upon me. That, of course, is your right, I suppose. I do not wish harm on anyone. Your statement seems to continue the ‘US v THEM’ mentality. The election is over. It is important to get past campaigning and campaign rhetoric and get down to what is uniting, not dividing and what is best for ALL Americans.

There will never be a President who does everything to everyone’s liking. There are things President Obama (and President Clinton) did that I do not like and conversely there are things I can point to that the Presidents Bush did that I agree with. So I am not 100% in lock step with the outgoing President but have supported him and the overall job he did.

And, if you recall, during the Presidential Campaign back in 2008 the campaign was halted because of the “historic crisis in our financial system.” Wall Street bailout negotiations intervened in the election process. The very sobering reality was that there likely could be a Depression and the world financial markets could collapse. The United States was losing 800,000 jobs a month and was poised to lose at least 10 million jobs the first year once the new President took office. We were in an economic freefall. So let us recall that ALL of America was suffering terribly at the beginning of Obama’s Presidency.

But I wanted to look back over the last 8 years and ask you a few questions. Since much of the rhetoric before Obama was elected was that he would impose Sharia Law, Take Away Your Guns, Create Death Panels, Destroy the Economy, Impose Socialism and, since you will agree that NONE of this came to pass, I was wondering: Why have you suffered so?

With the start of the Iraq War in 2003, Republicans started the whole idea that politics is lies.  This normalized the notion of politics as lies.

Now they can say anything, because truth doesn't matter.  For the past 14-years Republicans have invented lie after lie...WMD's in Iraq, Benghazi, emails, death panels in the Affordable Care Act...and the Obama presidency wasn't good.

The Obama presidency was one of the best administrations that the US has ever had...from Washington to today.  Obama got the country out of Iraq, saved America from the next Depression, brought unemployment down from 10.5% to 5.1%, oversaw the creation of 6-million jobs, saved the American automobile industry, oversaw the American stock market soar to over $20,000 average, Dow Jones, and finally, created a highly successful medical care system.  Oh and um...he got bin Laden when the Republican administration was completely inept at finding him.  But truth and facts don't matter to Republicans.

It's their loss.  Look what they have as their legacy...a Russian agent who takes golden showers and grabs the occasional pussy.

I would weigh in but I would prefer to see some of our right-wingers' opinions on this thread.

That's the problem, though, they just ignore facts like these.

Idea

Only have to wait for Comrade NITrollsky to discover this thread on his next swing-by...

Then he can rehash his propaganda puff-pieces from a couple of weeks ago --  where he posted his bald-faced lies about how apparently over the last eight years :

Unemployment has doubled
The  stock market has tanked
Poverty has increased
More people are homeless
"Obamacare" failed
Obama invaded more countries than the Bushes
And the US economy is in a shambles


--  all his claims  the complete opposite of the real world situation..

Supposedly,  all of the genuine facts and statistics are really "fake news"  --  and only NIT and his Teabagger/Trumpster/alt.right bosses really know what is happening in the world  !        Rolling Eyes

He is rather silent since these town hall gatherings have been kicking the Republican ass. Truth is in the votes.
