Can you prove than any of those predictions were ever even made? I didn't think so.

I lived in Spain for the first 4 years of the Obama presidency. I had actually voted for McCain in 2008. So I rely on family and friends back home for a feel of what is happening, since I know news, especially news overseas, isn't reliable. So for 4 years they drone on about how America has been destroyed by Obama, the economy is in shatters, sharia law and Muslims running amok, guns getting seized, people getting tagged, you know, the works. And I'm really hating it in Spain, which was actually a socialist-leaning country in economic free fall, and I'm thinking that I won't even have a country to return home to. But in 2012, regardless, I leave the Euro-Zone bedlam and return home, expecting like some # out of the Running Man or the like.

What I returned home to was a totally different picture than what I was told to expect. For starters, unemployment had dropped since I left in 2005, the economy had improved since I had left, and it was 100 times better than the economic chaos and instability I had just left. I not only had no problems buying a gun, but the background checks are quicker, and getting my concealed carry was easier than when I had left. No sharia law, and far fewer Muslims per capita here than there were in Europe, where there really are genuine Muslim problems. Socialism? After living in Socialist Europe for almost 7 years, I laughed at what people here called "Socialism". These crybaby Republicans don't even know what a socialist nanny state really looks like.

It was coming home and seeing actual reality vs the hype, and then the same people continuing to spew the same fiction at me despite the fact I knew better. This is when I started losing respect and trust for the right.

The fact is that there's been eight years of left-wing rule and this country is a freaking mess. You can only blame the ones that were in power. Any deflection from that is a bunch of BS.

Can you say over 20 trillion in debt?

lol how debt only counts when it's spent on Social Aide Programs.

Guess those wars cost us nothing.

It sure is easy for Republicans to send 50,000 Troops to war and just let the Democrats clean up and bring them home.

The list is correct because Obama made attempted to make all those things happen.

Obama just recently admitted that his biggest failure was that he didn't get enough gun control. He did sign the U.N. small arms treaty.

Even the ones he failed at on that list wasn't for lack of trying.

So the Boston bombing wasn't quite the scale of 911 does that make it not a terrorist attack? What about San Bernardino? There were terrorist attacks under Obama!

As to the fairness doctrine what do you suppose all this fake news crap is all about?

Conservative talkers like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity are rallying their listeners with a very old — and very successful — battle cry, accusing the left of trying to curb their free speech

www.politico.com...



...no one is seriously pursuing the idea of returning to the long-defunct policy, which required media on the public airwaves to present both sides of controversial political issues.


I wish the Fairness Doctrine would return. I appreciated the back-and-forth. It helped keep folks honest and the rest of us a little better informed. For example, I always prefer hearing folks tell me who they are, rather than just hearing their enemies telling me who they are.

And, of course, Dan Akroyd and Jane Curtin sure made it hilarious on SNL.

When Obama took office unemployment was around 10%, and now it's slightly more than 4%.

The country was on the brink of depression, and now it's so much better they are raising interest rates again. Good thing for those who have 401K's and such. Bad for those who have a lot of credit card debt.

But Obama promised reductions.

Some people said he was lying at the time.

Not only did Trump not say that, neither did Cenk. Typical hyperbole BS from you.

Trump did mention a deportation force, a humane deportation force which, if enacted, I'm sure would include transition camps. But, like everything else Trump says, I'm sure he will never go through with any of it because he's the King of FlipFlops.

He already did flip flop on it lol.

"We can't be breaking families up," is what Trump says now.

He also flip-flopped on Hillary. "Let's take it easy on her."

Gee wilicker, what will he flip flop on next?

Clearly the national deficit is Obama's fault LOL.

It has nothing to do with a privatized banking cartel called The Federal Reserve, LOL.

Go read a book.

He probably just didn't want to take the heat when the old battle-axe scow stroked out so close to the elections.

Can't say I blame him either.

Trying to have more documentation and background checks for people buying guns isn't trying to take away all guns. Neither is restricting certain firearms or rounds. That's not taking anything away from anyone. It's restricting who gets those things in the future. (BTW, I'm not for gun control. But I'm not for false arguments either which is what you're using.)

He's not ending Capitalism either. That's just dumb.

Nobody is stopping Christianity or setting up Islam to rule with Sharia Law. That's is just retarded as hell and is not happening. It's ridiculous.

Just because there is another Terrorist attack doesn't mean he's causing it. It's a f*cking attack from terrorists. Obama isn't causing a terrorist attack. Unless you want to say that his drone bombing the crap out of the innocent people in the middle east trying to kill terrorists is causing them to attack us back. That you could argue maybe.

You're just repeating BS you've heard without actually looking into any of it. The fact is he came in to office with a economy crashing and saved it. Maybe not perfectly but it's stable again and getting better. It rewarded the rich more than the poor like always but if he wanted to crash the economy that would have been simple. He could have just done nothing and let it crash.

That's great that you benefited from the ACA. Why does that mean others should pay absurd premiums for coverage with huge deductibles? Is your health more important than theirs? Your misfortune should cost them thousands of dollars a year?

The ACA was a scam to profit the insurance industry. You got coverage and millions got screwed. If that doesn't bother you, that millions of people have been screwed, I'm not sure you're thinking straight. You're next.

#1, Recently read one of his regrets was not passing firearms restrictions - pesky 2nd and all that.

#2, Cronyism maximized instead of socialism.

#3, Served beer n hot dogs to Muslim Brotherhood several hundred times and imported couple hundred thousand musl.....I mean refugees but no christians.

#4, Not for lack of trying.

#5, Jury is out on that as Fed waited till 30 days to end his regime to raise rates that it said could not be raised without calamity, but now they can.

#6, Unvetted Musl......I mean immigrants kill in slightly smaller groups to forward anti 2nd agenda, but there's that pesky amendment again.

#7, Looked over FCC, FEC appointees and rulings and control of Internet lately, but gosh darn ran smack into that 1st amendment backed by ever so pesky 2nd.

Yes of course it was that too and promoted by all the CFR and elites and the Shadow Gov really running things. It was also the asinine socialist agenda of wealth redistribution O and his ilk promote and implemented, including but not limited to transfer of resources to millions of illegals. That was in addition to inviting illegals to vote in our elections. The guy is nothing less than outrageous.
But let's be honest about the so called privatized Fed ... It's more like a public/private partnership which is used in Sgenda 21 Communitarianism as it could never have happened without the collusion of Congess in 1913.
