I think some people are confusing recovery with a healthy economy.  Trump did not bring us out of the Bush/GOP recession.  The economy has continued to improve under Trump after Obama brought the country out of the Bush administration doldrums.  So yes, you're right @myexper , when it sounds and looks like 'riding on coattails', it is.

 

Here is one analysis from the Washington Post's Fact Checker which cites the Bureau of Labor Statistics, CBO and Bureau of Economic Analysis and includes pretty charts, too.

I still remember how GW Bush's Tax Cuts for the wealthy were gonna Trickle Down to the 99% and what happened ?

Great Recession !!


You liberals have to understand that tax cuts go to the people ACTUALLY paying taxes, don't you?  If 47% pay no tax, then they don't benefit from ANY tax cuts.  Oh, I get it - you want those that pay no taxes get some money from those paying the taxes - typical liberal thinking.

A lot of blame being thrown at Obama for the deficiet, with no credit for keeping us out of a Great Recession. 

But, weren’t repubs in charge of the House and Senate for the years since 2012? Did they just stand around and not spend any money? Sure seems that they opposed Obama at every turn. 

Are trump supporters trying to rewrite recent history?

Good morning to all-

I see that the present occupant of the White House had a "press meeting" recently- which means only the people he approves of were offically invited. Of course, like most of the present occupant's dealings, it degenerated into a cursing, shouting match and showed yet again just how low, crude, and limited the present occupant and his supporters are.

Friends, if ANY of the previous Presidents had behaved as this present occupant does, he would have been impeached- immediately. Can you imagine if President Obama had done a fraction of the abusive, mean, cruel and let's be honest here- stupid- things the present occupant has done?

Of course, President Obama was a decent, concerned and let's be honest here- intelligent- man, and the present occupant is none of these things.

I hope the rest of the coutnry is getting as weary with the present occupant's behavior and ignorance as I am.

Vote the garbage out. Send them home.

good day to all- Ed

===============================================================

I suggest that you look at what Trump has done not just at some of the things he says.

Food for thought...think about what the Democrat Socialists candidates are suggesting they will do if elected.

They are suggesting change of the highest order: free college, free healthcare to citizens as well as illegal aliens, $15 minimum wage, higher taxes on all, a new wealth tax, reparations for blacks, universal childcare, a new carbon tax, guaranteed income if you work or not, guaranteed housing, Medicare for all.


Boo....does equality and justice for all scare some???


You want equality and justice with other people's money?

"Other people's money" .... that would be money taken away from middle class tax paying Americans to serve as a handout to the already wealthy!

 

  I only get scared when Democrats start planning for how THEY will waste MY money.

Continued Republican handouts to the most wealthy, the Republican wars, the Republican recession and most recently the Trump/Republican tax scam clearly indicates that it's the Republicans who are wasting your money NOTHAPPENING!

Recovery?  From what? 

 

It was Obama who inherited a country in recession.  I daresay he left it in better shape when Trump took over.


That is a good one, thanks I needed that.  Have a VF link to back it up....s'ok we know that's not true.

How fast the Socialist Alt Left forgets how Obomba added big time to our national debt.  Obomba left our USA in terrible condition when he finally moved out.  Trump has the best economy we've had in decades, and he did it on his own with no help from Obomba. 

I think the DOW closed the highest it EVER has a couple of days ago. Unemployment is way down but of course some will still try to prove it isn't.  I really wish the Left Wingers would read REAL news once in awhile before they post.

The best things they could do now is make those 23-25 candidates running for the Socialist Liberal Party to tell you exactly HOW they are going to pay for all the free stuff each one of them claims they will give to all the illegals, real citizens, other countries, etc.  I just hope they think of our own US citizens living on the streets first.

The USA NEEDS to do something about the Electoral College----For the second time in twelve years and the fifth time in the nation’s history the winner of the popular vote lost the electoral vote and therefore the presidency. ( BELOW ISTHE POPULAR VOTE) Clinton: 65,844,610 (48.2%) Trump: 62,979,636 (46.1%) Others: 7,804,213(5.7%) This is how the THIRD WORLD holds elections..... We had PUTIN interferring(sic) and otherwise members of the Electoral College messing with the votes.

========================================

"We had PUTIN interferring(sic) and otherwise members of the Electoral College messing with the votes.'

And you know that because? MSNBC?


I do not think you understand why we have the EC.

Sounds like poor losers..why only complain when they lose?  Votes were played and messed with when Obomba won......where were you when all those dead people voted?  Twice even?  And some live people voted twice?

Any VF Links to that statement cm.......?

 

And now complaining about the electoral democratic system we've had for years? 

Just because it's old doesn't mean it still has any useful function in today's voting system, other than to make it easier for Russia to focus on what is the best combination of states to interject their interference for maximum electoral vote totals .... just as they did in the last presidential election.

I don't see any VF link on this?

Look below ....

 
So where are the "VF links" you were asked to provide?
 

  It should be easy now that the 'investigation' on the Socialist Libs (Clinton for one) has begun...it will all be out soon.

Yup .... "it will soon be out" that the 'investigation' of Clinton was just another witch hunt to evade from Trump's numerous obstruction of justice incidents described in the Mueller Report!  

 


I never said if it was useful or not. 

Actually, your statement regarding the "electoral democratic system we've had for years" certainly suggests that you do indeed find it useful based on its age.  I think you're reading what you want it to say, but that never was what I said. I said our country has been using it for years but you never complained under Dictator Obomba (twice) but now you complain under Pres Trump because Liberals lost in 2016.

 

Just strange that the Alt Left didn't complain about it when Obomba won twice and there had been reports of 'dead people' voting, and some people voting more than once (mail-in and in person). And NOW that they lost they whine about it. 

An enormous evasion .... NOTHING to do with our antiquated electoral system.

Here comes the complaining again with no action.  Plus, the topic was NOT about that anyway so I wasn't evading anything. I just was answering your question.

 

Americans are tired of listening to the Socialist Liberals constantly talking about it..

SO where's your VF link on that accusatory generalization?

 

if YOU don't like it, then work to change it; but please stop complaining about it if you don't.

Complaining about it enough, by enough people, will lead to changing it.

That's not true, eventually it becomes blah blah blah when it's the same whining and the person whining doesn't bother to do something to change it...like an action.

 

 

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.”  Gandhi

Ghandi was not aware of Republican obstruction to changes which could benefit ALL Americans!

See....you have to argue about everything


So where are all the VF links that you were asked to provide? You demand them of others while you fail to provide any when asked to do so.


Where are yours?  I kept asking you for yours but nothing.  I never 'demanded' but asked since that was what AARP said we should be posting.  If it is something I'm quoting, by all means I'll post one.  I noticed a lot of Socialist Liberals never post them and then some say 'it's a fact' like we're all suppose to trust them lol.  Then when some links are posted it has to be from the Fake News or they don't believe it.  What the Socialists trust in and what the Conservatives trust are always different.

When the Socialist Left says it and nothing of how they will pay for it, the only thing that's scary is some people actually believe them blindly.

I think if Trump is reelected  it will be the devil unchained. 

 

You can't vote for a monster and put him in office with all the power of the President  and not be a monster yourself.   Right, just look at the Socialist Liberals...they did that in voting for Obomba


You are correct Gruffstuff. Those who voted for and support trump are dirtying themselves with the hatred, bigotry, racism, and corruption surrounding trump and his administration  And again JYO and never any proof/VF Link.....get it all out!!


Again, an attack hate session.  If that's what works for you....what a sad shame.  I know I learned a lot from history.

 


Did you learn from history that Hitler was elected in a free election by using lying propaganda, inducing fear of a race of people and of the sitting political party in power? Those who knew history and recognized it repeating itself didn't support trump, his lying propaganda, nor the Russian's. I'm pretty sure you're confusing Rodham Clinton with the Russians.  And that will all be coming out shortly if you keep up with the REAL News.  One more time - NO Collusion for Pres Trump!! 


Nooo, I learned from history...did you?  Oh that's right (in your own words).  It actually sounds like you're describing the Socialist Liberal party.  Because of the history (that most intelligent Americans did learn from) they DID vote for Donald Trump. 

Many learned from Obomba and his lying propaganda [attacking the 'white' police in his first month when they tried to help a 'black' man] and [choosing BLM over law enforcement - constantly] and especially him 'inducing fear of a race of people and of the sitting political (Conservative) party in power' [Obomba pitting race against race, never supporting other races except black (Jewish for one).

And when he took over the office I thought "well at least he should make race relations better since he's 1/2 white and 1/2 black ::wow was I wrong:::: and now race relations are so much worse since Obomba that the 'racist' word is thrown around like it means nothing; and thanks to the Socialists it doesn't, which is really sad for the Black and Jewish people who suffered greatly. (I suggest you read some books about the Holocaust if you're not familiar).

 

"IF YOU'RE AGAINST EVERYTHING, YOU'RE AGAINST NOTHING"


I don't see (as you put it) any "VF links".  I trust it was an oversight and you will rectify it shortly.
