    You have grossly miscounted his "bashcount", I had it somewhere near 1,200.
    :idunno:

    And the percentage of his thread starters are just below 94% anti-Trump. But hey, he's beating the Main Stream Media by 1%.

    Although your statement is likely inaccurate, I'll play along.
    So if Obama's GDP hit 3% eight times, that means that eight years, times 4 quarters, equals 32 opportunities. And you are calling eight out of 32 a positive thing? Sorry, but the punk was a failure.

    Obama is the only modern day president that NEVER reached 3% annual GDP over his eight year Presidency.

    Case closed.

    I know that predictions are pretty much worthless, but I'm predicting that Trump will be above 3% every year of his presidency, and will have several quarters that hit 5-6 percent.

    All Presidents and other politicians love to get in on the photo ops after disasters, and I wish they would all stop because that's truly all they are......is a photo op. They likely scoop out food or carry brush for 2 minutes, get their photos, then disappear. I'm not hypocritical about this issue, they all need to stop and just stay out of the real worker's way. Plus, most of today's politicians haven't had dirt under their fingernails since they were pushing their trucks around in the sand box as a little boy.

    *Arguably the worst photo opp that I've ever seen was Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, in his wheel chair, removing brush from a pile. Spare me.
    Abbott did a great job with the relief effort, but him removing brush and getting in the real worker's way is over the top foolish. Everyone would clearly understand why he wasn't actually doing physical labor. (The left would have been foolish enough to bash him though.)

    That's proof that Coolidge was second only to George Washington as our greatest Prez! And, how did he do it? By cutting the spending of the inherited budget, and cutting taxes.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calvin_Coolidge


    Coolidge adopted the taxation policies of his Secretary of the Treasury, Andrew Mellon, the idea that "scientific taxation", lower taxes, increase rather than decrease government receipts.[112] Congress agreed, and tax rates were reduced in Coolidge's term.[112] In addition to federal tax cuts, Coolidge proposed reductions in federal expenditures and retiring of the federal debt.[113] Coolidge's ideas were shared by the Republicans in Congress, and in 1924, Congress passed the Revenue Act of 1924, which reduced income tax rates and eliminated all income taxation for some two million people.[113] They reduced taxes again by passing the Revenue Acts of 1926 and 1928, all the while continuing to keep spending down so as to reduce the overall federal debt.[114] By 1927, only the wealthiest 2% of taxpayers paid any federal income tax.[114] Federal spending remained flat during Coolidge's administration, allowing one-fourth of the federal debt to be retired in total. State and local governments saw considerable growth, however, surpassing the federal budget in 1927.[115]

    Got to love old Silent Cal

    Grace Goodhue Coolidge, recounted that a young woman sitting next to Coolidge at a dinner party confided to him she had bet she could get at least three words of conversation from him. Without looking at her he quietly retorted, "You lose."
