Thread: On Obama’s Speech at the University of Illinois

1. Short version: it was all about him, and he lied like a rug. (h/t @hfinch61)
thehill.com/opinion/financ…
2. Slightly longer version: he is deathly afraid that the entirety of the corruption of his administration will be exposed after the Nov elections. In his narcissistic mind, trashing his successor (& violating long-standing protocols and decorum to do so) is entirely appropriate.
2A. And lied like a rug!
3. Which is why he proceeded to trash every major Trump policy initiative and even contradicted his own prediction that 1% annual GDP growth was the “new normal” by having the audacity to claim credit for Trump’s 4%+ GDP growth.
4. The legacy media have been trying for some time to rewrite recent US economic history in order to give Obama false credit for the economy.
5. From a 10 August IBD editorial:

“The stronger the economy gets under President Trump, the more desperate his critics are to hand credit over to Obama. Even if that entails changing the past.”
6. [In a NYT article] “The economy, reporter Patricia Cohen declares, ‘is following the upward trajectory begun under President Barack Obama.’”

“We seem to recall that the economy was stagnating in 2016 after the weakest recovery from a recession since the Great Depression.”
7. “GDP growth decelerated in each of the last three quarters of 2016.”
8. “And on January 27, 2017, after the government reported that GDP growth for all 2016 was a mere 1.6% — the weakest in five years — the Times announced that ‘President Trump's target for economic growth just got a little more distant.’"
9. [In September 2016] “CBS News reported that ‘with U.S. economic growth stuck in low gear for several years, it's leading many economists to worry that the country has entered a prolonged period where any expansion will be weaker than it has been in the past.’"
10. “[T]here was no upward trajectory to the economy on anyone's radar when Trump took office…. the fact is that optimism surged across the board as soon as pro-growth Trump won the election over stay-the-stagnant-course Hillary Clinton.”
11. “[A]fter Trump's deregulation and tax cuts are starting to take effect, we're seeing still more signs of stronger growth.”

12. So we see once again that the legacy media laid the groundwork for Obama’s claims in his speech. We’re on to that shtick since that’s exactly their modus operandi for the 8 horrible years of his presidency: Obama and the media working hand-in-hand to hoodwink everyone!
13. And Obama as the master liar and prevaricator has no problem whatsoever in reading the words on his teleprompter in claiming credit for that which he predicted was not possible! He doesn’t even look the slightest bit nervous when he lies (like normal people do).
14. There were a whole lotta straight lines in honest analyses of Obama’s horrible speech afterward. And since ANY response would be seen as racist by Obama’s sycophants in the media – why the hell not? Seems Obama really monkey'd up that speech!
15. And the attendees all applauded like monkeys? But of course! If they compare us to the KKK and Nazis now, they'll really squeal if they push the civil militia to stand up.
16. Well… the Nazis were Socialists, and the KKK were/ARE Democrats. Uh, what kind of drugs does Obama take? I'd like to order a big bottle and alter MY reality. I hope Obama keeps his monkeys applauding - if their hands aren't busy, they are back to flinging poop at us.
17. True though that Obama started this recovery - by leaving the office! In the same vein, we can credit Shrillary for the recovery - by losing BIGLY!
18. You wonder why Obama chose Chicago to jump into the election campaigning? Because it's one of the few places where he's welcome - for now. And all he could muster up was 750 people for a follow-on speech in Deep Blue California!

19. Looks to me like the bloom is off the rose! Or maybe normal people have been comparing Obama to @POTUS & realizing they had the rug pulled over their eyes for 8+ years by the Obama-legacy media cabal. Please campaign more for Democrats going into November, Barack! ///The end.
