Hope is everywhere. Hope the Obama's don't let the White House door hit them in the ass on the way out, hope that Trump will be better than the last Republican in the White House and hope I win the lottery soon. I'm awash in hope.

I feel so bad for the Obama Regime. All of that hard work to destroy our country will now be erased with the stroke of a YUGE pen.

It has been so exciting to watch the regressive left crash and burn. It has been nothing but failure after failure, and it keeps getting better. They have finally exposed themselves for who they really are, and America has rejected them full force.

Bye bye lefty!

Indeed for those who seek to turn America into a communist-socialist, politically correct, lowest-common-denominator craphole, all hope has died. America has awoken to the insidious poison of "progressivism" and given it the deathblow it deserves.

Well you guys laugh now...

But making so much fun of America's long time mortal enemy seems like sizable hubris and jackassery.

I think a lot of you guys don't understand Russian culture, or recognize how much the fall of the Soviet Union stung.

Ex KGB like Putin hold long grudges and will smile at you will they turn the knife. Making fun of it in such a way

puts people off guard which is dangerous.

Won't be sad to see Obama go.

I thought he be actual change, then I watched as he sold out to corporate interests, expanded Bush's imperialist wars of expansion, continued the construction of a police state. Forced the poor and vulnerable to pay vulture corporations for health insurance under the stealth deception of "single payer". He completely destroyed East-West relations, set race relations back decades with his divisive rhetoric and led to some pretty major Democrat electoral defeats for the legislature.

Obama's Defense Authorization Act of 2012 is one of the most insidious pieces of legislation passed in America. The same administration that pushed SOPA and PIPA, supplied Al-Qaeda terrorists... The list goes on.

What a glorious legacy.

You do realize the soviet Union collapsed or did you miss that?? And apparently you know nothing of history there is no such thing as a mortal enemy circumstances change. If you told people in world war 2 Japan and Germany would be US allies people would have called you crazy. Putin doesn't want the soviet Union he wants money and to stay in power like every other dictator. But there is something about Putin many don't realize in his mind hes fighting a religious war. Hes mentioned it in several interviews I guess me speaking Russian I have a unique perspective. He believes Islam to be a threat to the world and see globalists pushing Islam as the other. If I told you Russian involvement in US elections if it even occurred would be to save it in his mind. He has stated several times that if the US were to push the globalist agenda it would bring about a world war. He sees the US as the pivot point for world war. He wants back the old United States he dealt with when he was with the KGB. He believes that only the US and Russia can stabilize the planet and defeat the threat that Islam presents. Right or wrong the threat the US presents to Russia is backing wahabists because he sees there goal as destroying Christianity. And he is very much a Russian orthodox. Have you even noticed the Kremlins attempt to reach out to the Vatican? He seems them as a natural ally to Russian orthodoxy.

What we are seeing from him is an attempt to secure Russia from what he believes will be the next war even Crimea was a move to that end. Crimea wasn't about defending against Nato he saw it as a defense against the middle east. When he looked at the US he saw an administration that was willing to overthrow governments in the middle east. Remember Hillary bragging about regime change did you follow Putins reaction? His concern was simple he stated it removing dictators that controlled the middle east would make the region unstable leading to the rise of Islamic groups to take its place. His reaching out to Iran same thing he sees them as a natural ally against Wahhabism. Same reason hes in Syria same reason he wont let Saudis invest in Russia. His goal is to get the US to realize the threat and work with Russia to solve it. In one interview he went so far as to state its to late for Europe.

Now I don't believe hes right to be honest but it doesn't matter what I believe I'm not in charge of Russia. But one of two things will happen Putin will be unable to maintain power and someone the west sees as more reasonable will be put into power. Or someone who considers terrorism and doesn't make the same distinctions he does about Islam will take power and then god help us all. Many in the states don't realize just how radical some of Putins opposition is. There are several that want Russia to fight that war carving up the middle east. Putin is a planner and is ok with just manipulating it at least for now,

PS if you think he was joking when he said he thought Hillary would start a world war he wasn't it was an actual fear of his. Heres a question for you have you ever wondered why Russia is supporting nationalists throughout Europe? He spends a lot of money backing nationalists in ,Italy .spain . Hungary,even the UK Independence Party. So again I ask why would Russia spend money backing these groups that they cant afford to do right now???????????

I find michelle obama to be one of the most offensive, divisive people I have ever seen.

She is black and worth $millions and has spent the last 8 years in the White House, but all she does in bang on and on about how racist America and Americans are and how black people are held back.

People today have no idea, her especially, she is one of those irritating people who speaks from a position of privilige about how bad her life is because she is [black/gay/old/mulim/etc - delete as applicable] and moans on and on about how unfair she has been treated, when there are people out there who can't even afford to feed their kids and have nowhere to live.

She make me physically sick.

... you do realize Obama set that in motion a year or two ago with the TTP and TTIP, right? or did you conveniently forget that?

, and lets religious people treat everyone else like garbage it will be hopeless in America
Yeah you guys already allow this so I'm not sure what you're meaning here. Besides is that any worse than letting the minorities treat everyone else like garbage just because? OR how about forcing their ideals onto the majority until we are forced to accept it as "normal"?

Now before someone comments, I personally don't care what you do, don't do, or even who you do it with for that matter. Overall I try to have a general live and let live attitude, I just don't like being told how I should think on a subject I may not personally agree with.

Your mind in infested with fake news


Now, lets bear in mind, I don't think Obama was a horrible or terrible president. I thought he had good moments and bad moments.

Dow Jones took a big jump up the moment Trump won the election, but that is neither here nor there. One of the arguments about that is that Obama's policies that generally screw american workers here, had the effect of upping the Dow Jones because of the number of companies on it that benefited by having factories and locations in other countries that reaped the rewards from those policies.

Yes, insuring many Americans by upping premiums so much that the people carrying the others can't afford to actually use the insurance they pay for now. ACA has only ever lowered my paycheck..and lowered it even more this year. And when I was out of work, took a huge amount of my unemployment, since I had to be covered. By the end of it, I owed the government money for being out of work. WTF? that's entirely messed up.

and that unemployment cut by half? Yes, because many of our medium and high paying tech jobs (the ones I am qualified and certified for), were outsourced overseas and no replacements ever came back. Sure, new very low end paying jobs have appeared in the tech market, along with a some medium level positions that now pay SUBSTANTIALLY less. The average salary for my skillset dropped $20k to $30k.

None of that is fake news, anecdotal evidence? yes it is, but I experienced it. A 30 year career in mid and high level IT and my positions aren't secure anymore, they pay a lot less, insurance is a total money-grab scam and with all the taxes I had to pay out of my unemployment and still owed the government, it was asinine to have taken it in the first place.

I understand YOU say the whole county is better off here at the end of Obama's term, but my experience has been totally opposite. Seems worse to me. Seems like those numbers are essentially disingenuous at a base level. slight of hand and misdirection.

Sure, DJ is up, by screwing America with uneven trade policy.
Sure, Most everyone is insured, because those middle class Americans who carry those that can't pay are now paying back-breaking premiums that make it so they can't use their own insurance.
Sure, Unemployment has dropped by half, we traded out a lot of well paying jobs to create NEW LOWER PAYING jobs! YAY!

The net effect has been that my debt just keeps going up because I can't get steady work, my insurance premiums are insanely high (that I have to pay, working or not, somehow) and when I do get work, it's all lower paging positions, despite being essentially the same positions I was in before.

I don't know if there is hope for America or not. I have my fingers crossed and I try and have a positive attitude. I hope things are going to get better and I'm keeping an open mind about it. I'd have done the same if Hillary had won as well. I'm prepared for disappointment however things turn out though. I am a realist, not an optimist lol.

but I don't agree the picture of the last 8 years has been rosy.

You can laugh now, but by the time the new Admin ends social security and medicare, ends minimum wage, allows massive pollution and fraud, ends the ability to sue companies or even report on the bad things they do, and lets religious people treat everyone else like garbage it will be hopeless in America.

I'm sorry...did you say something?

BREAKING NEWS: Dr. Smith, head of the Harvard School of Medicine has posted for immediate release the following emergency medical alert apparently affecting only those of liberal/progressive political affiliations.

Lib-eer-al In-sanitus, better known a "Trump Won Syndrome" has been identified, categorized and is now running rampant among the American public. Beginning with a state of confusion, violence, incessant protesting and denial of facts this syndrome was first diagnosed on or about November 8th and has now spread to roughly 50% of the population. While it has yet to cause any known deaths, it has resulted in an excessive number of liberals urinating themselves while seeking safe-places to hide their crying fits.

Dr. Smith is most concerned with what is generally accepted as the "final stages" of this syndrome were the human large intestine becomes contorted and misshapen causing a reversal of the normal flow of internal processes. This will reportedly result in an unexpected combination (also oddly paradoxical) where the infected begin defecating from the mouth while gas is no longer expelled but creates a vacuum where the rectum begins to pull the human cranium inward, causing undue damage to the rectal cavity, as the entire head of the infected becomes permanently lodged within the bowels of the individual.

If you see anyone exhibiting these symptoms DO NOT APPROACH these individuals! While not considered infectious to any individual with a minimal education and/or general understanding of reality, exposure to the afflicted can cause intense laughter, abdominal muscle cramping and an odd interest in "Making America Great".

Hope in internal.

Hope is not supplied by the government.

People who depend on the government for hope are always going to be disappointed.


According to Michelle, Barry brought hope AND good parenting skills. In her mind, we're all toddlers bumping our heads on the furniture. Who's going to kiss the Lib's boo-boos and change their diapers now?

None of that's is Obama's fault, it was caused by police shootings, many of whom are conservatives.


And those shootings were the result of an administration that was teaching thugs that they could indulge in thuggery with impunity - right up until they met the conservative officers who still believed in law and order.

It says a lot when the only thing capable of pulling Obama from the golf course mid-game was the chance to shed a crocodile tear over Trayvon Martin while stirring up the pot of racial tension.

The moment black people and poor people count on each other instead of the government and decide to solve their own problems with hard work, creativity, and sheer will power, the moment they can forget about stupid politicians and their worthless false hope.


Indeed.

One of the enduring images of Obama's election was the woman crying with joy because Obama was going to "pay her gas and mortgage" with his "Obama stash".

That was a very, very sad day. Sad for America, sad for humanity as a whole. The very worst of political suicide wrapped up in one woman's tears and complete lack of understanding why what she was saying was so terrible.
