The Dow is up to 131 points since Sr. took office. Credit were credit is due.

TL/DR: Obama made me more money. Along with positive foreign and domestic policies.

The U.S. President does not directly influence the stock market. I never have understood why people frame it that way.

Me either. I had Trumps Dow in quotes but edited it out. But I remember him getting all kinds of love for the DOW bounce that any president gets when elected.

The day Obama took office, the Dow closed at 7,949 points. Eight years later, the Dow had almost tripled, closing at 21,414.
****debt tripled too.


General Motors and Chrysler were on the brink of bankruptcy, with Ford not far behind, and their failure, along with their supply chains, would have meant the loss of millions of jobs. Obama pushed through a controversial, $8o billion bailout to save the car industry. The U.S. car industry survived, started making money again, and the entire $80 billion was paid back, with interest.
****lie^. It wasn't paid back, it lost -26.5B according to George Mason researchers (-17B according to USA Today)



While we remain vulnerable to lone-wolf attacks, no foreign terrorist organization has successfully executed a mass attack here since 9/11.
****i suppose the Muslim who bagged 50 at Pulse was an "America ". Yay for immigration!


Obama ordered the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden.
****a good moment for him

He drew down the number of troops from 180,000 in Iraq and Afghanistan to just 15,000, and increased funding for the Department of Veterans Affairs.
****another good moment


He launched a program called Opening Doors which, since 2010, has led to a 47 percent decline in the number of homeless veterans.

He set a record 73 straight months of private-sector job growth.
*****first Pres never to exceed a 3% GDP growth rate


Due to Obama’s regulatory policies, greenhouse gas emissions decreased by 12%, production of renewable energy more than doubled, and our dependence on foreign oil was cut in half.
*****cant take credit for all 3^. They're competing goals. Obama had absolutely ZERO affect on our domestic energy rise

He signed The Lilly Ledbetter Act, making it easier for women to sue employers for unequal pay.
****for which he should punch himself repeatedly in the face for, shameless grandstanding


His Omnibus Public Lands Management Act designated more than 2 million acres as wilderness, creating thousands of miles of trails and protecting over 1,000 miles of rivers.
*****ok

He reduced the federal deficit from 9.8 percent of GDP in 2009 to 3.2 percent in 2016.
*****cannot believe I just read that^


For all the inadequacies of the Affordable Care Act, we seem to have forgotten that, before the ACA, you could be denied coverage for a pre-existing condition and kids could not stay on their parents’ policies up to age 26.
*****costs $ and jobs. Mention the trade off


Obama approved a $14.5 billion system to rebuild the levees in New Orleans.
****lie. These plans were in the works immediately after Katrina, and any Prez would sign them as a matter of procedure


All this, even as our own Mitch McConnell famously asserted that his singular mission would be to block anything President Obama tried to do.
*****so he opposes "the resistance" vs Trump?


While Obama failed on his campaign pledge to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, that prison’s population decreased from 242 to around 50.
*****????


He expanded funding for embryonic stem cell research, supporting groundbreaking advancement in areas like spinal injury treatment and cancer.
*****you mean Congress did



Credit card companies can no longer charge hidden fees or raise interest rates without advance notice.
****meh


Most years, Obama threw a 4th of July party for military families. He held babies, played games with children, served barbecue, and led the singing of “Happy Birthday” to his daughter Malia, who was born on July 4.
*****He denounced American history for 8 full years


Welfare spending is down: for every 100 poor families, just 24 receive cash assistance, compared with 64 in 1996.
*****he supported that???


Obama comforted families and communities following more than a dozen mass shootings. After Sandy Hook, he said, “The majority of those who died today were children, beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old.”

Yet, he never took away anyone’s guns.
****he desperately and repeatedly tried to, but was blocked politically



He sang Amazing Grace, spontaneously, at the altar.
****one of his few good moments



He was the first president since Eisenhower to serve two terms without personal or political scandal.
*****laughable

He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
*****like, really really laughable!


President Obama was not perfect, as no man and no president is, and you can certainly disagree with his political ideologies. But to say we suffered?

If that’s the argument, if this is how we suffered for 8 years under Barack Obama, I have one wish: may we be so fortunate as to suffer 8 more exactly like it.
*****If people didn't suffer, why did Obamas party lose so many seats? Why did he fail to hand over the Presidency for a 3rd Term?

New World Order 07-12-2017 01:41 PM

If I was going to talk about Obama's accomplishments I would stay far away from anything GDP.

Just disgusting that this passed. It should be repealed. It's economic fascism because it infringes on private property rights. Since businesses are a part of America, they lost more rights.

Federal land grab when govts are not good stewards of the environment.

This provision is one that drove premiums up well beyond the increases that were already happening. It's not a good thing. It's more economic corporatatism aka fascism that was written by the insurance industry.

My premium increased $900 one year then $1000 the next year, with loss of benefits, and higher deductible. Fucl ACA and someone else's pre-existing conditions. Someone pays and does not benefit while some do. Not a good plan.

But Food Stamps increased.

This is false: Fast & Furious, Behnghazi, IRS scandal and unescorted minors helped across the border. I'm sure there's more but the press favored Obama. Here's one that received little attention—stealing money from Fannie and Freddie Mae, because the healthcare exchanges weren't funded due to a flaw in the ACA law. Congress would not approve money for them and some states wouldn't either. So Obama resorted to theft and breaking the law while our Lying Scum Media remained silent about it. Many of Obama's scandalous moves have simply been hidden. The there's the hacking of state elections offices, Loretta Lynch obstructing justice and HiLiaRy Clinton being appointed SoS using it for access to get donations even from foreigners for her CF which was a slush fund for grifters.

Quote:

He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize
But started two more wars and droned Yemen which resulted in 98% of those drone attacks killing civilians such as women and children.

Obama DID NOT DESERVE this award and won it on campaign rhetoric only—rhetoric where I actually liked and supported him for.

Who cares? This doesn't affect my life.

Quote:

Irrelevant to who suffers or not.


There's more I could address as likely bogus such as the fake un-employment and job growth numbers; his crony capitalism to Big Auto, Big Banks and their bailouts most of which Americans did not approve; and having it take years for the economy to grow again and only at a low small rate of 2%. This is good enough on criticizing his policies for now.

I liked Obama when he was anti-war and ran on restoring civil liberties but he failed miserably here with more surveillance on Americans. One area I can support him on is the Iran deal, which is repeatedly mischaracterized by the NeoConservative and Religious Right.

Titty Meat 07-12-2017 02:50 PM

I did fine during the Obama years it's interesting those who rely on the government did not but Trumps the problem!

New World Order 07-12-2017 02:57 PM

That Amazing Grace one kills me

There's not much a bigger disconnect than the how the market is doing and how the country is doing in most people's lives now than since pre-WWII.
The correlation between them is continually diverging.

Because race relations were great before Obama.
