Skip to comments.Obama: Americans "better off" under his presidency
Posted on 05/20/2014 2:59:37 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
President Obama said Americans were better off now than when I came into office, during a fundraiser Monday night outside of Washington.
Obama also slammed congressional Republicans for their focus on the terror attack in Benghazi and the implementation of ObamaCare.
The president told attendees at the high-dollar soiree in Potomac, Maryland that his Republican opposition in Congress had been captured by ideologues whose principal focus was on how to make people sufficiently skeptical, so they can win the next election.
The debate now is about what? Obama asked. Benghazi? ObamaCare? It becomes this endless loop.
Obama told donors that he preferred a robust Republican Party I come from the Land of Lincoln but that the current iteration of the GOP did not believe that government can get anything done.
Obamas remarks came at a fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee at the home of Jeffrey Drenzer, a medical training and technology executive. Tickets to the event, billed as an intimate dinner, ranged from $10,000 per person to $32,400 per couple.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), DCCC Chairman Steve Israel (D-N.Y.), and Maryland Governor Martin OMalley (D) joined a sizable contingent of House Democrats at the event, including Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and fellow Maryland Democrats Elijah Cummings, Chris Van Hollen, Donna Edwards, Dutch Ruppersberger, and John Delaney. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) was also in attendance.
On his way to the fundraiser, Obama stopped to chat with a group of little league teams at a Northwest D.C. baseball field. The president posed for pictures and quizzed the co-ed teams on their drills.
He REALLY means older Americans are better “OFFED” under his administration.
It becomes this endless loop. Obama told donors that... To go with the endless loop of lies!
!!!LIBERAL PROJECTION ALERT!!!
No doubt Hitler would have had no problem saying the same thing about the German people under his chancellorship.
Message to Il Douche: Shove it, jug-eared jackass.
This clown is truly delusional..........
The really sad part is he actually believes it....
“Obama: Americans “better off” under his presidency”
Well, I guess that I would have to agree, as long as one is a government dependent Marxist/Communist.
The America that I grew up in, running my own businesses, was the greatest country on earth.
Obumbo’s reelection really shocked me. I could not believe how far the country had fallen.
“Americans are better off..”
How far up his a^% does his head have to be so say something like that?
Oh, we know government can get ‘things done’. It's just that a large number of those ‘things’ government gets done are bad things that take liberty from people and suppress the population. I'm sure King George ‘got things done’ (e.g. “The Stamp Act” and other levies and tariffs), but we dumped him.
What we don't need are more people who think they're ‘gifted’ because they went to an elite university, who then skip the ‘real job’ route and go straight into political activism and political careers - like Obama, the Clintons, and the vast majority of those selected by Obama into the current administration.
The framers might have done us a service if they mandated that no one could hold political office who didn't spend at least four years in non-political private sector jobs first.
Even Clinton injected some truth into his statements.
This state of affairs is sad and pathetic. It will become very, very dangerous.
“The White House pointed out to Clark that Obama’s visit to the little leaguers came ahead of his planned trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.”
They weren’t so smart to mention that. It’s obvious that he wanted to make mention of his stop to visit little leaguers to impress the people at the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Yes, but a significant segment of the American people do believe they are “better off” now than they were six years ago. Americans as a whole are too uninformed to know better.
But it’s exhilarating to millions of the uninformed in the USA, not “dangerous” at all as they see it.
Dog is terminally ill. Better off with 12 gauge load of double ought pumped into brain than before.
Better off since his presidency? His big mouth and travel agent just said the other day there is still segregation and racism,how can that be?
We have a dead Ambassador,three other dead people and no answers as to why,I know,what difference does it make?
An IRS that target people the President does not like,the same thing an article of impeachment was written against Richard Nixon,thousands of guns that were sent to MEXICAN drug cartels and were used to kill our border agent and hundreds of MEXICAN men women and children,and we supplied guns to Alqueda to try to oust Assad,the same Alqueda that killed our troops.
This country surely has changed and we are so much better off
“Message to Il Douche: Shove it, jug-eared jackass.”
Gee, I wish I’d said that.

But think about it for a minute. If we have figured this out, so has every world leader. They all know the leader of the free world is either delusional or a cannot be trusted to speak a single word of truth.
Additionally, he is a coward. He would not commit forces to save his own operatives in Benghazi. The words he utters have NO MEANING WHATSOEVER.
All the dictators, Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, AQ and the rest have been given a blank cheque. They can grab all the real estate they want, and they are doing it.
The Ukraine is a side show. The real show is in Asia, in the South China Sea. China is on the move. The US response is....crickets.
You can repeat it as often as you wish.;-)
Case in point, when he referred to himself as one of the 4 best Presidents... he wasn't lying, he was simply looking through that prism. The 4 he named were Lincoln, FDR, LBJ, and himself. Each one had a massive benefit for black Americans at great expense for white Americans. That is their only point in common. Try it and you'll see. It works.
Hell, I'd even go to Disney World to celebrate... If I wasn't unemployed... /s
What an arrogant SOB. I’m on my 2nd layoff since he took office and have seen my annual pay drop almost 20%. And the cost of practically everything has doubled under his watch.
And people still believe the lies he tells?
The even sadder part is that his faithful followers believe it.
Everything Obama says follows that model.
PROJECTION PROJECTION PROJECTION!!!!
A very large segment of the population of the United States of America worship the son of a bitch as their god. They believe every word that comes from his lips. So, yes they believe his lies and will continue to do so.
The crony capitalist are doing well.
Obama is a mental case and needs medical help.
Obama's speech on the glories of self-absorption shows, once again, that the political ploys Dummycrats have elevated to an art form is pretending it didn't happen when their cockamamie policies collapse before their very eyes. Or, as Hillary would say: "What difference does it make?"
Lordy, so many Democrat fund-raisers---so few Obama stops on the Democrats' campaign trail (snicker).
Obama seems unusually toxic this election season because his approach to governing has been to shove as much left-wing nonsense down the throats of the American public as he could, then make excuses and try to blame Republicans when the policies dont work out as he and his Democrat rubber stampers claimed they would.
Certainly all his cronies are better off. The rest of us are much poorer.
Bingo! Liar in chief strikes again. Either he is lying (which is a safe bet, he lies literally every time he utters more than a few sentences on any topic) or he is wildly, painfully delusional or perhaps he is just mind bogglingly out of touch - like Marie Antoinette “let them eat cake” out of touch. I prefer the simple explanation - he is lying, again, still.
Yes, but a significant segment of the American people do believe they are better off now than they were six years ago. Americans as a whole are too uninformed to know better.”
True. The American people had the opportunity to change the leadership of the nation in 2012 and chose to keep the same leader and the same policies. He had a record, as did his challenger. The people who voted consciously made a choice. It speaks to the desire for the people of the current generation for big government. Unfortunately, those who desire individual liberty, and are willing to be accountable for themselves, are in the minority.
But they, (black Americans) are NOT better off! His policies have done Absolutely Nothing to help them to improve their quality of life, or to become self sufficient - And more, they have made darn near Every American’s life Worse.
When the economy tanks, Every American feels it on some level, FRiend.
May God share His strength.
I know: It is the Star Trek Mirror universe, where the Federation is evil, and in Earth's history, America had a noble, competent, humble black President who set safeguards to protect the Constitution, always told the truth, and made the economy roar back to life after George Bush.
The people who believe in Islam and Communism/socialism are better off because of Obama and their common beliefs.
You cannot tell me he won fairly. I estimate the normal voter fraud of 10% favoring Democrats was all the way to 15% on that election.
You can’t make this crap up. Obama is obviously living in a different universe.
My business is down... my family is suffering... my health costs are more than 200% higher than 2007... gasoline and diesel are at an all time high since this A$$ Hat took office which equates to EVERYHING costs a ton more... more jobs have gone overseas... more jobs have gone down the tubes from his EPA goon squads... the national debt is a nightmarish reality...My family and I are living in a fascist regime no better than a Banana Republic...The media for the most part is a propaganda machine for this idiot’s agenda...WHAT ELSE DID I FORGET?
And I’m supposed to be better off? I’ll be better off when this jerk wad leaves office.
If Obama were Hitler, he'd be saying the Jews were better off under his Chancellorship.
The Inner Circle is better off, but not the rest of the country. That is the way Marxism works.
Pray America wakes up
“But they, (black Americans) are NOT better off! “
A really sad aspect of the human condition is that those of a baser nature actually DO feel good when those who are more successful are taken down. Especially when “one of their own” does the taking down.
They will say they’re better off because everyone they envy is having a hard time.
