Whoo boy. It looks bad if you just throw numbers at a screen doesnt it?





Yes, but those numbers don't measure the REAL PAIN. That was put on full display November 8th, when state after state after state turned RED..rejecting what Obama says are his "improvements". Americans are not as dumb as his administration thinks we are!


No many Americans are dumb as we think they are.

Obama and the democrats are all for raising the Min Wage which would help bring people out of poverty. Democrats have called for infrastructure bills to pay for new roads, bridges, water systems and so forth which would revitalize construction jobs. Democrats want to push for new industries like green energy to bring in more jobs.

GOP has soundly rejected all and more.

You know full well the DOW and S&P 500 reached the highest it's ever been the moment Trump won the election... and your REALLY trying to credit Obama with that?

Bahahaha!

I remember watching that on CNBC and I thought, here we go again, trickle down economics. Wall Street is all giddy about the benefits they will be getting. Why would they take and turn around and share? Trickling down would take from the profits.

"Bahahaha!

That is why the chart was updated on JANUARY 13, 2017. That same chart on November 7, 2016 would be very different...for the worse.

Of course, it's the only way to make Obama look good on his way out the door. The funny part is that it actually makes him look that much worse.

Consumer Confidence is another blatant example, rewind that to October and see what the numbers are. Not to mention the cooked employment numbers that equate temporary and part-time work with full-time jobs. This entire chart is a joke made my liars or willfully ignorant liberals.

Love your new countdown avatar! At what TIME does Donald Trump officially become the U.S. President on Friday 1.20.2017?


BTW.. thanks for that state-of-America chart for 2008 vs 2016. You'll NEVER EVER see that on CNN/NBC/CBS/ABC... and maybe not even FOX.



Thanks. A few people have noticed, it must be particularly triggering to some.

When you look at the statistics released by the treasury and labor departments over the last 8 years, you understand why Obama's slogan for his final term was moving forward... because it's certainly a lot better than looking back.

Rex Tillerson's salary as CEO of Exxon is 24 million in 2016. That's crazy man.


Considerably less than Hollywood 'stars' make.

Don't see people running around saying 'crazy'.

It's funny how people make excuses for Obama.

Obama was a horrible President. If he wasn't, why didn't people show up to the polls for Clinton when Obama said his legacy is on the line?

Everyone knew that Trump said he wants to repeal Obamacare and basically dismantle everything Obama has done over the last 8 years. If Obama is so great, why didn't people come out in droves to protect Obama's legacy?

If Obama was such a great President, why have Democrats lost 13 Governorships, over 1,000 Statehouse seats, the White House, the House and the Senate?

Since Obama took office, Democrats have been decimated.

The Supreme Court. Everyone knew, Trump would nominate a Justice like Scalia that goes against everything Obama stands for yet they still came out and voted for Trump over Clinton.

The gap between the rich and poor has increased under Obama, poverty has increased under Obama, debt has doubled to almost 20 trillion under Obama.

I know there's the Obama excuse police that wants to make it seem like Obama walks on water but the truth is the truth. If Obama was such a great President, why didn't the African American community protect his legacy which he asked voters to do?

People not liking Hillary doesn't mean they don't like Obama.

That is flawed logic.

Reagan phones, those are Reagan phones. The program for free phones was signed in to law by the Republican Messiah; President Ronald Reagan. Every Republican president since has kept the program going.
You should educate yourself.
I guess you can just keep telling easily debunked, worn out lies about President Obama though too.
