“When Obama took office, the Dow was 6,626. Now it is 19,875.”

When Obama WAS ELECTED the DOW was at 8,900ish - it dropped 2,000 points prior to his inauguration!

Take that!

Obama accomplished many things, unfortunately they all hurt America, which was their intent.

Gays and Lesbians can now marry and enjoy the benefits they had been deprived of.
(Just because liberals and homosexuals think it is good, doesn’t make it so.)

When Obama took office, the Dow was 6,626. Now it is 19,875.
(Does anyone see a correlation with any kind of reality there?)

We had 82 straight months of private sector job growth – the longest streak in the history of the United States.
(Define “private sector job growth”. Do low paying, part time jobs count?)

Especially considering where he the economy was when he took over, an amazing 11.3 million new jobs were created under President Obama (far more than President Bush).
(See above. And how many of the are public sector?)

Obama has taken Unemployment from 10% down to 4.7%.
(Stupid liberals love this one. How many Americans are eligible to work, but have simply given up?)

Homelessness among US Veterans has dropped by half.
(That is because they are all dying due to the butchery of the VA system)

Obama shut down the US secret overseas prisons.
(They say this as if it were a good thing)

President Obama has created a policy for the families of fallen soldiers to have their travel paid for to be there when remains are flown home.
(I think this is fine, and the fiscal impact is low. What did our soldier’s families do in prior wars? Why is this a necessity?)

We landed a rover on Mars.
(Yeah. In between Muslim advocacy at NASA. And Obastard had a lot to do with this anyway, right?)

He passed the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act.
(Hate crimes are a liberal construct that has to determine the mindset of an individual. If someone commits a murder or assault, why is “Hate Crime” legislation important? There are laws or no laws.

Uninsured adults has decreased to below 10%: 90% of adults are insured – an increase of 20 Million Adults.
(This may indeed be true for all I know. Raise your hand if your health care costs have increased dramatically to pay for people who don’t deserve healthcare or refuse to pay for it, or if the quality of your healthcare has gone down...)

Ah, Hell. I give up. Trying to refuteliberals is a stupid premise to begin with, because they won’t say anything that refutes them is valid.

And least important of all (evidently), he increased our national debt by $10 trillion, doubling the deficit spending of any president in U.S. history.

So large was his deficit spending, that it equaled 50% of the deficit spending accrual in our nation’s history, the 232 years prior to his election. So 8 years vs 232 years.

He was the first president to lose an ambassador and his staff in a terrorist attack, then willfully lie about it to everyone.

He was the first president to refuse to send help in a timely manner when his ambassador’s and the ambassador staff’s life on the line, resulting in their deaths.

We could go on for a few days. His sycophants wouldn’t be able to grasp it.

Also... to my knowledge he is the only president to leave office with around 90 million able bodied willing to work people out of work.

Since Trump got elected, the Dow is now at 20,600. Today was yet another record close.

saw the point about abortions are down. Since when are the left happy about that?
Then it rants on about hate crimes, Matthew Shepherd, don;t ask as if all that is a good thing. Just because they think it is good doe snot make it good.
Also I notice there are points, but with no proven facts. For instance if that many jobs was created then produce the evidence.

Seems the talking points have been set out by OFA in order to try and protect obama and his legacy.

I had thought we were closer to double than that.

I had thought we had gone over $20 trillion some time ago, but even today it’s still deep into the $19 trillion dollar level.

Obama has such an inflated opinion of himself. He probably created the list.

BTW: Bush did the same thing, doubling the debt under his watch, or close to it.

That has got to stop. I’m hoping Trump can make a major impact there.

Ideally, I’d like to see him pay down some of the debt.

Well, let's start here:



- Especially considering where the economy was when he took over, an amazing 11.3 million new jobs were created under President Obama (far more than President Bush).
Obama uses June of 2010 as his starting point not January 2009- where 5+ million jobs were lost in that period.

- Obama has taken Unemployment from 10% down to 4.7%.
decrease was gotten at the expense of workers leaving the work force and part time workers include as being FT employed.

- He passed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.
Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was not about fair pay. It was about expanding the statutes of limitations for filing a lawsuit for unfair pay practices.
It is also the first bill he signed and it's the first bill that violated his "When there’s a bill that ends up on my desk as president, you the public will have five days to look online and find out what’s in it before I sign it, so that you know what your government’s doing,” campaign pledge.


here's a few.....I could be here all night

His legacy will be judged by what Trump does to improve this nation.

Both were given a chance. Trump will absolutely embarrass Obama by the time he is done.

I agree with your take on things too.

Obama brags abortion rates decreased....but he “forgot” that the for-profit butchering of unborn babies’ body parts increased.

They love to ask questions in such a way that there is no way to answer them.
