How much of Trump's early success will Obama claim as part of his legacy, as if he controlled it?
From the moment Donald Trump won the election, the world changed - the rise of globalism was thwarted with one giant step. The stock-market, although performing well under Obama, climbed even higher. World powers that had shown animosity towards America are now complacent. The OECD recently revised their forecasts for the US Economy under Trump - expecting growth of 2.3 in 2017 and 3.0 in 2018 (growth under Obama 1.5 in 2016.) Plus Mexico and Canada are ready to renegotiate, TPP is dead, and more. All because of Trump, but on Obama's watch - wonder how much he'll try to take credit for?
From the past history, he blamed Bush for his failures after 6 years in office. I guess he can use the same argument and claim any success for the next 6 years. Unless Trump screws up, then it is all Trump...haha
That's exactly what I was thinking - he will wait until Trump is successful and then say he laid the "groundwork" for the success - if Trump fails, then it's a big "I told you so"
"He'll wait for Trump to be successful"? He's going to have a long wait.
iraq invasion 01, patriot act and republican forced tax cuts 03, collapse and tarp 08...who should he blame? oh let me guess...the democrats in congress!
When you can learn to stop living so far in the past Leslie, you'll be better off. 15 years ago is an eternity in today's world
ha! so how come we heard about whitewater, vince foster, and the parade of 30 yrs ago women from bills past at the dang debate? i bet chapaquiddick is said as prayer after every gop meet n greet. "i pledge allegiance to chappaquidick" 60 yrs ago!
Could you explain what you mean by "Trump's early success"?
perhaps reading the question again might demonstrate them - or you could Google it
Schwartz has this hate thing going with President Obama. I used to think it was bigotry. Now? I am certain it is a pathetic man who hasn't much accomplishment in his life, certainly not in league with President Barack Obama. Schwartz is a jealous man
this is such history repeating...economic indicators are pretty good.trump comes in to a good situation, and will ride obamas wave.all the while, discounting the past 8 years,taking all the credit for himself. maybe if he credits the big o, wld help
very easy why wall street loves him: deregulation, lowering corporate tax rate, getting rid of inheritance tax...a boondogle for the uber rich. and i doubt obama will claim trump, since trump is going to erase all 8 years with executive orders. gee, tyrant, anyone? obama has been nothing but gracious to trump, and you just cant resist another dig at him on his way out, huh?
now you see why dumpy will get no quarter from this american. sore losers and sore winners. see how well you all take the constant downgrading of your prez.
We can only hope that Trump can find a way to erase the last 8 years - hopefully we can get back all the lost jobs and wages Obama let go overseas as part of his Globalist agenda
lol!! those jobs were long gone before obama got there. and he was able to get the economy back, despite the stonewall of stupidity that is the gop. now the stupid rules. have at it. cause trump is rewarding the traitors with tax breaks. not earned
Anyone who lives in NJ as I do, knows why our taxes are sky high. 6 Corporate bankruptcies dumped on NJ taxpayers by Trump. This guy thinks he can reverse all that government is intended to be: Of the people, FOR the people, BY they people.
doesnt surprise me, given that he doesnt pay taxes, making othes take up his slack.
I will be out of the office for the next 10 days. I am donating my time to the major airlines in LA to help load the luggage of all the celebrities who promised to leave the country if Trump won!
I have also volunteered some time to work with the college students that are ‘hurting so badly’ over the great Trump victory that they cannot attend classes! I am taking donations for crayons for these future leaders to let them learn how to connect the dots in their “fantasy life” coloring books!
As posted on Arsebook, note: “Democrats took an early lead which dramatically changed in the late afternoon once Republicans got off work & went to vote!"
And he's getting crazier by the minute. World leaders are salivating over our demise. He got the electors votes and is still claiming that the election was rigged.
MizB - you must be confused - the world is salivating the death of the tyrant Castro
Leslie, please try to understand that there is no way Trump will not be the next President - the silly recount plan doesn't even sound like it will get past PA......
yes, so odd that he has to have ivanka and jared around..tweets at 3 am?i mean,im up then, too. but for work.whats his excuse? or maybe its when he can escape surveillance? and now hes ok w sharing classified info, and so are the rest of them?kookoo
Let me guess...half the Dixiebelles and Corn Pone queens who have no idea how much they are going to lose with the Penthouse President are all feeling their jollies that they won. Did they? Seems to me Hillary won the popular vote by more than 2 mil
senate went more votes to dems, too. its redistricting thats giving them the win. same as house in 2010 and 14. its a nice little tied up bow. no room for anyone but them for the foreseeable future. and mcconnell isnt recusing from wifes confirmation
Trump just announced he convinced Carrier to stay in the USA preserving 1100 jobs - not even in office and already winning for the little guy
what did he give them in return? what was the deal he made?
Why so cynical? I'm betting you'll spend the next eight years bashing Trump, even while the nation improves all around you. Obama waves bye-bye while jobs leave America but there's no outrage - Trump saves some and there's outrage
"New inducements" = Subsidies. Spearheaded by Pence. 5.6 bil gvt contracts, 1.5 bil r&d they get now!
"Every savvy CEO will now threaten to ship jobs to Mexico, and demand a payment to stay," Wolfers wrote on Twitter, adding "great economic polic
You must hate to see America win Leslie. President Obama has done NOTHING to secure jobs for the future...NOTHING. Cutting taxes to keep factories here is a plan for success - just watch as see.
obama did plenty.despite the baby brigade. these companies dont deserve a tax cut. especially when they get so many other freebies from we the people.and especially after leaving.stay gone!i could care less about ceo bank accounts.dont let door hitya

My question - President Trump was well known for this statement. "You will get sick of winning." Are you sick of winning? Trump's economy once again this month beats projected unemployment numbers... 18 year low. ...

This is really two part question. The first part is the above question. The other is a slight twist, to wit: "Is President Trump Turning Out to an Existential Threat to Ideals Which America Represents?"The reason I ask is because consequences are becoming evident from his nine...

And just about everything else: His crazy reckless ineptitude is causing massive gas and product tax hikes which is passed on to all Americans: While retarded, dangerously unhinged ‘Donald the Bozo CLOWN’ falls perversely in love with an evil N Korean dictator named Kim Jung Un like the natural...

I'm sorry, but I cannot abide this man as president. He sounds like a demented 10-year-old. How anyone can believe he is fit is beyond my comprehension. He speaks less eloquently than my elderly mother who has Alzheimer's.I've truly tried to understand the Trump supporter who...

After oil prices came down to record lows after the Great 2008 Recession during the Obama administration, they have skyrocketed since Trump took office. Around the beginning of 2016, Brent Oil prices were around $30/bbl. Today, they are north of $80/bbl.Why?
