It’s funny how when the shoe is on the other foot people can become so unhinged. Now before I say anything else, I am going to let you know in advance that I will be mentioning a certain former presidents name. At this point I know that sends you folks on the left into a tizzy due to inexplicably poor short term memory, but as I always say, I don’t care.
Please, don’t scream at the sky, whine or call me names.
Over the last two years it seems as though President Trump has made it a habit of mentioning our former president when he talks about the economy, foreign relations etc. Usually it is in terms of how good it is now as compared to how bad it was under Obama. Fair enough. But watch the bobble heads on any of the stations.Talk to anyone on the left. Mention Obama and the pre prescribed mantra sets in. “We aren’t talking about Obama. We’re talking about Trump. Why do you guys on the right always bring up Obama?”
Why do I bring up Obama? Because for the first six years of his presidency, all he did was blame Bush. He and Billary still matter because as long as they continue to comment on Trump they are fair game.
Read that very, very carefully. If they feel the need to keep commenting on Trump, they are fair game for whatever the right has for them. It doesn’t matter whether they are in power or not. They are choosing to continue to play the game. If you can not understand that, then I’m sorry, I can’t help you.
Let’s check out some Obama quotes on Bush:
“When I came into office there has been drift in the Afghanistan strategy, in part because we had spent a lot of time focusing on Iraq instead. Over the last three years we have refocused attention on getting Afghanistan right. Would my preference had been that we started some of that earlier? Absolutely. But that’s not the cards that were dealt. We’re now in a position where, given our starting point, we’re making progress.”

“When I took office, the efforts to apply pressure on Iran were in tatters. Iran had gone from zero centrifuges spinning to thousands, without facing broad pushback from the world. In the region, Iran was ascendant.”

“We’ve made sure to do everything we can to dig ourselves out of this incredible hole that I inherited.”

“When I first walked through the door, the deficit stood at $1.3 trillion, with projected deficits of $8 trillion over the next decade. If we had taken office during ordinary times, we would have started bringing down these deficits immediately.”

“Look, we do have a serious problem in terms of debt and deficit, and much of it I inherited when I showed up.”

“I inherited a big debt.”

This is only a snapshot of why we bring up Obama. To dismiss him and his merry band of misfits would be negligent at best. For those who scream that they can’t take another minute of Trump, now you know how I felt for the eight years under Obama.
So yes, that’s why I keep mentioning Obama and his incredibly corrupt presidency and I will keep mentioning him as long as the left continues to live in a delusional la-la land. Don’t tell me that he and Billary don’t matter, because they do.
As always, if you are offended by this post or just don’t like what I have written…I don’t care.
