So riddle me this: How much of a lying piece of sh!t MUST one be, and how desperate for proof that one really wasn’t an incompetent, self-serving ideologue as president, than to try to take credit for something that one had virtually nothing whatsoever to do with? Now of course he of whom I am speaking is none other than, gone but not for forgotten, ex-president Barry ‘O’ who on Monday suggested that he, and NOT President Trump, is solely responsible for our current booming economy. Go figure!
You see it was on Monday that Barry took to Twitter and said, “Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history,” while also sharing a picture of his $787 billion stimulus spending package that didn’t do squat other than to waste nearly $800 billion. Don’t you remember all of those “shovel ready” jobs? Nope, me neither!
Barry’s message on Twitter was not some a nostalgic look back on his presidency, as he specified it was his spending package that was responsible for “more than a decade” of growth, this despite his only being president for eight years. Actually the ONLY thing that resulted from his bogus ‘stimulus’ package was the fact that the bank accounts of many of his political cronies were significantly ‘stimulated.’ There was nothing that came about that had any positive impact on stimulating the economy.
While Barry’s stimulus ‘may’ have, in some small way, helped the economy recover from a major recession, economic growth had slumped to rather anemic 1.6 percent by the time he finally left office. It was a combination of President Trump’s tax cuts and a huge cut in regulations that proved to be the rocket fuel that prompted the American economy to take off and for record high stock markets gains, wage gains, historic unemployment rates, and an expansion that is now the longest on record.
And remember how Barry had famously said after he left the White House that he would refrain from criticizing President Trump, but that was just one more promise on what turned out to be very long list of many broken by Barry after he hit the campaign trail in 2018 to boost Democrats. It was during a speech in Nevada back in 2018 that Barry complained, “When you hear all this talk about economic miracles right now. Remember who started it. Remember who started it! C’mon!” Right!!
I suppose the true irony here, in Barry’s patently dishonest claim, is how minorities were made to suffer more than anyone during his reign, forced to put up with low wages, high unemployment, and an overall decreasing household wealth. President Trump succeeded in reversing that trend, and in pretty short order. He’s gotten us to the point where we now have historically low unemployment rates for Blacks and Hispanics. Yet, liberals still refer to President Trump as being a racist.
Democrats are indeed desperate to claim credit for themselves when they know they deserve none. Democrats don’t create, they only know how to destroy. Barry said it was a magic wand that would be needed to bring manufacturing jobs back. It turned out that that magic wand was killing TPP, ending NAFTA, cutting regulations, enacting tax cuts, re-negotiating trade deals and making the business environment competitive again. Barry, too, could have done any of those things, but he simply CHOSE not to!
And it was Barry who gave us just a taste of the Socialism the full brunt of which Bernie now seeks to inflict on America. And not until President Trump reversed all of his idiotic policies did our economy take off. Not to mention how Barry did nothing for the black community other than stir the pot of racial tensions. He made us all a laughing stock of the world and under his failed strategy of ‘leading from behind’ the world descended into chaos. Barry could have been so much more than what he was.
And history, at least the honest version of it, will also show how it was that America’s first black president played a very prominent role in what was nothing other than a blatant coup attempt made against his successor. Yet it was Barry ‘O’ who proved to be nothing less than a one man national catastrophe. He damaged this nation more than any foreign enemy could have ever dreamt of and can easily be said to be the worst President in our history. Somewhere Jimmy Carter is breathing a sigh of relief.
The best thing that Barry ‘O’ did was to create an environment that made it possible for Donald Trump to become president. Because I have absolutely NO doubt that had Barry ‘O’ not been elected that we would not today have one of the greatest presidents ever to be elected. And it was the election of Donald Trump that drove those on the left to reveal their true selves, drawing them out of the shadows from which they were far more comfortable doing their dirty work to destroy our country.
And so as we all now know, it was President Trump who was left to clean up the rather sizable mess that was left behind after the very destructive eight year reign of Barry & Co. and in so doing, in what was a very short span of time, politically speaking, restored to America her rightful place in the world. President Trump has continued to make very clear his love for America as well as for patriotic Americans everywhere who want nothing more than to save their nation from the radicals.
So let me see if I have this right, Barry ‘O’ and his bunch of less than impressive economic advisors actually predicted that the economy would remain anemic, with continued loss of manufacturing jobs. They also predicted that President Trump would tank the economy and also went so far as to predict that the markets would crash. So if we fast-forward to a time after President Trump moved ahead with his policies, it would appear that Barry & Co. were, and remain, pretty much full of it.
Now had President Trump decided to keep the idiotic policies dreamt up by Barry & Co. then I suppose a case could be made that would then allow Barry ‘O’ to take some level of credit for our current booming economy. But President Trump chose to scrap the policies that Barry ‘O’ had put in place because they weren’t working, so why keep them? After all, those policies were created by a bunch of academics who were totally clueless about what all it actually takes to make possible a booming economy.
The fact that President Trump was able to do in three years what Barry & Co. couldn’t manage to do in eight really tells you all that you really need to know. For eight years we had a man in the White House who came into office on a mission, a man who so hated America that he wanted nothing more than to destroy it. And still he attempts to convince us that that was not his intent at all. But in looking back at the time he spent in office, how is it that you can come to any other conclusion?
The debacle that was the Obama Presidency was something this country was fortunate to have survived. But just because we managed to survive it does not mean that irreparable damage was not done. President Trump has accomplished much, but he is just one man and his time is limited. And Democrats continue to resist his every effort to not only “Make America Great Again,” but to “Keep America Great.” And it’s every Democrat now in the running for president who wants America destroyed.
