Republicans are mad because this situation is delaying their mad rush to get him on the bench before midterms. But they had no problem holding Scalia’s seat open for over a year.

I just can’t fucking believe this… This utter SHIT coming out his mouth. And yet. From Obama to this – how low can you fall, America?

Don’t underestimate people’s disdain for a powerful, educated, and successful black man.

Gallup: Obama, Hillary Clinton remain most admired:

seandotpolitics:

Former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remain the most admired man and woman in the United States – a 10-year trend for Obama and 16 years running for Clinton…

Clinton’s 16th consecutive year topping the most admired women’s poll showed her support dip this time from 12% to 9% of respondents. Former first lady Michelle Obama came in second with 7% of respondents, and the third place finisher at 4% support was Oprah Winfrey. The rest of the list included political figures, British royalty and Beyoncé Knowles. One percent of those surveyed named first lady Melania Trump their most admired woman, bringing her name into the top tier for the first time.

Clinton has topped the list 16 years running and taken the top spot 22 times total, which Gallup said was more than anyone else – man or woman. Obama’s 10th year as most admired man makes him second only to former President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Fun fact: This is the first time in 71 years that the sitting president was not named “Most Admired Man” by the public in his first year in office.

Blow bama doubled our deficit

Let’s put that into perspective….

President Obama had the largest deficits.

By the end of his final budget (FY 2017), his deficits were $6.690 trillion. Obama took office during the Great Recession. He immediately needed to spend billions to stop it. He convinced Congress to add the $787 billion economic stimulus package to Bush’s FY 2009 budget. This added $253 billion to the FY 2009 budget. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act added another $534 billion over the rest of Obama’s terms.

In 2010, the Obama tax cut added $858 billion to the debt in its first two years. Obama increased defense spending, adding as much as $800 billion a year. Federal income decreased due to lower tax receipts from the 2008 financial crisis.

Both Presidents Bush and Obama suffered from higher mandatory spending than their predecessors did. Social Security and Medicare benefits were eating up more of the budget.

Mandatory spending.

He had to pull us out of the financial crisis. It worked too.

Also, whenever good economic numbers about unemployment, jobs growth, DOW, etc were announced from 2009-2016, Republicans called them useless.

Then, when Trump gets some economic data [via Obama], the Republicans call those some metrics the perfect way to describe the economy and try to take credit for the Obama Economy.
