    Anyone remember when Obama said "those jobs aren't coming back" and "what magic wand do you (Trump) have". Well, those jobs are coming back because we finally have a President that isn't actively trying to sell us out.

    Seems fair. I've seen people here attribute responsibility for several different current situations to Obama. It's happened a few hundred times over the last 10 months in this forum alone.
    Now you want to pick and choose and say he's had no impact?
    That's pathetic.
    Either you reset the counter and start responsibility the day Trump took office or you don't.
    Cherry-picking makes you look desperate.

    I seriously believe that he simply cannot keep himself from trying to shore up some semblance of a legacy. Yeah, the term "narcissist" definitely fits.

    Oh, I get it...

    Obama intentionally crippled and stagnated the economy with the massive and wasteful "Stimulus Package" (which was anything but); farcically pointless programs like Cash for Clunkers; and the onerous over-regulation of industry (which required industry to hire more lawyers than productive workers) -- just so the incoming President Trump could look like a genius and get the economy kick-started at the get-go... :whistling:

    Well then Obama must certainly be glad Trump whopped Hillarys behind in the election or he wouldn't have a robust economy to claim was his doing now. We would be closing down coal mines, putting millions more on the dole, stopping fracking, no Keystone pipeline etc and that's just for a start. The trans Chinese trade agreement would have gone through, the Paris accord on climate control and paying billions to NK to stop his aggression. That's the **** Obama can really lay claim to that *** hat

    Hmm... Bad stuff happened on his watch, blame his predecessor. Good stuff happens on someone else's watch, claim full credit.

    I wouldn't trust bho to even score a golf round honestly.

    Jeezus! O'bozo, STFU and go away. Nobody but other Marxist Libetards are going to believe the sewage that spills from your mouth.

    In a way Obama is correct, he is responsible. This is all happening because he isn't in office anymore. So thanks Obama!

    Lol, what? Can we, at least, blame Obamacare on Obama?

    The sentiment of cherry picking may not be totally inaccurate but your assertion of "reset the counter" is absolutely asinine.

    I ran some rough numbers in my mind of just what I've heard or read since Trump took office, and there has easily been $1Trillion in investment commitments to the US. IMO, that is HUGE.

    I have never seen this happen, it's always someone else's fault.

    I'll keep saying it until everyone agrees with me. Leftists demand the attention in adulthood that absent daddy never gave them as children. This is what makes them emotional leftists instead of rational rightists. This time its Obama, though it could be snowflakes or Maxine Waters or Matt Lauer. Its all about the vain attempt to fill up an empty heart that should be full of daddy's love but isn't.

    Seems to be everyones modus operandi.
    Wanna guess how many times the current state of affairs have been blamed on Trumps predecessor?
    How many times something good's been fully attributed to Trump?
    It's all the same. No matter who holds it, a bias is just that.
    It's only interesting in that every conservative is in complete denial about how they behave exactly the same way they claim liberals do...and vice versa.
    Comical and clowninsh.

    (now if you'd like to claim that I can't find examples of "Hmm... Bad stuff happened on his watch, blame his predecessor." this is gonna become a very long thread indeed.)
