    What you say is not the reality we are living, why you say or think it is another thing.

    Obama Didn’t Create Trump


    The GOP’s opposition to Obama did.
    By William Saletan


    Everything that’s wrong with America is Barack Obama’s fault. That’s what Republican politicians have told themselves and the public for eight years. It began before Obama took office, when Republicans blamed him for a recession that started on their watch. Now they’re blaming Obama for the rise of their own presidential front-runner, Donald Trump.


    ......
    So, yes, Obama led to Trump. But that’s only because the Republican Party decided to be what Obama wasn’t. And what Obama wasn’t—insecure, bitter, vindictive, xenophobic, sectarian—is what the GOP, in the era of Trump, has become.

    No you have it all wrong. It's all because of that Marxist, commie America hating illegally elected Muslim Obama that we now need Trump to make America great again. It's gonna be Great, trust me it's gonna be GREEEEEAAAAAAT.

    Yeah I mean there's nothing really wrong with us, always some improvements but we aren't in any hole by any means.
    But they like to say everything is going to hell the end of civilization is around the corner.
    Rumps borrowed the Make America Great from Reagan and added Again to it.
    Reagan told us we are weak militarily so he spend a fortune on military machines then Kicked the commie ass's in the Great Battle of Grenada you probably all remember , so many movies made about that one.

    A great amount of that military spending was to rebuild our military that was decimated under Carter
    Carter (like Barry) did nothing to stop or check the Soviet advance (remember they invaded Afghanistan we did nothing)

    We are aware that the recession began under Bush
    The question is 7 years later, what has Barry done to fix it (oh besides not counting the unemployed)

    Don't flatter yourself. Obama didn't create Trump. Trump was created because Repubs surrendered to Obama. Repub Leadership refused to take stands against his UnConstitutional Exec Orders and bureaucratic runarounds. Repub Leadership caved to Obama's spending and government expansions, afraid of a government shutdown (that happens every weekend). Republican Cowardice created Trump...

    We should have continued to do nothing about the Soviets in Afghanistan their Vietnam. let them have it and be stuck there.
    Like we are now. If we did we never would have gotten attacked on 911 and G. Bush could have went back to the ranch and drank.
    On Obama and the economy it's doing pretty darn well, the coming back of industry well not in your lifetime, just won't happen.

    We're a lot better off than when were 7 years ago......unless of course you listen to.....well you know what I mean.... They have a lot of people on here terrified about everything....because Obama has destroyed our Nation and constitution....and the terrorists are knocking on their back door.....along with the gays........ Laughable.....
    Could we be better.....yes of course.... But don't worry..... "The Donald" is going to make it great again.....just as soon as he gets that wall built.....and starts bombing the middle East......Its going to be so great.... He said so....

    As much as I don't like Trump...how can anybody in their right mind think that Hillary or Sanders would be a better choice?

    Why pull straws about this Obama favors this country and those who live in it While the gop is more worried about countries like the middle east or north korea. Give it time our new gop prez will have you working 3 jobs so other countries ( above ) can live a better life

    Not counting people is not an economic indicator
    If the economy is booming then people should be getting off welfare and food stamps yet record number of people are still on these programs
    The cost Is still rising how is that possible?
    We have gone almost a decade with growth under 2%( I know it is still growth but when Barry pegs his wish list at 4-5% growth and spends based on that the math does not work)

    As for the Soviets in Afghanistan we did to them the same thing they did to us in Vietnam and Korea helped the other side
    The Soviets left the first thing the tribal leaders did was blow up the roads

    Sanders is the most honest of all the candidates. We all know that no candidate can deliver on their promises. Sanders is trying to change the way congress is controlled by special interest lobbyists. Take away all the commie Marxist rhetoric and you will find a man who really cares and believes he can make changes for the better.

    Trump is an entertainer, he was hooked up with the Wrestling thing for 25 years, then the TV shows & pageants. He's has that the NYC area ability to street talk and insult people, we see that every time he speaks. All very funny but he's not running for that kind of job.

    Trump's a con man and there are a lot of us suckers that like what he's selling. He's selling the Brooklyn bridge and he's got a lot of potential buyers that have swallowed his pitch. He's selling a great line of B/S. He still won't tell us how he's going to do any of it. But it's a great bridge.

    We would never expect you to "get it" Mags. You've proven yourself to be a clueless political hack. The majority of our issues are tied to Obama and his failures. The biggest blame that can be put on the Republican party over that last 7 years is that they were to cowardly to put a halt to his crap.
    He's been a disaster, so you just keep your blinders on, and the rest of us will continue to try to fix this country. Sit back and relax.......we got this.
