that’s about as critical as the MSM could manage to be about the guy. Maybe they were scared?
Yeah that’s it.

So explain this:

The widespread conservative "shock" and "outrage" over Obama putting his feet on his desk.

Pictures have shown President Obama putting his feet on his desk in the White House. That has led to "shock, outrage and mocking criticism" from conservatives who feel the pictures confirm their view of Obama as disrespecting the office of the presidency. Despite the outrage, President Bush was also photographed with his feet on the desk.

Fox Nation ran a 2010 picture with the caption, "Is Pres. Obama disrespecting the Oval Office?" Glenn Beck said he was outraged by the 2010 photo and suggested Obama "should leave office" for showing such disrespect. A 2013 WND column wondered, "Obama Sending Muslim Subtle Message?"

And explain this:

The time conservatives lost it over White House Christmas tree decorations.
During Christmas 2009, conservatives attacked the White House over Christmas tree decorations. Breitbart's BigGovernment suggested the White House was making "some political statements" by having "Transvestites, Mao And Obama Ornaments Decorate White House Christmas Tree." Fox News' Special Report eatured the "interesting ornaments" on its "Political Grapevine" segment. And the Washington Times linked to and quoted an entry on the conservative NewsReal blog attacking the White House for choosing "a lovely ornament featuring China's mass murderer, Chairman Mao, to adorn our national Christmas tree at the White House."

In reality, Fox News itself noted that the "first lady's office says local community groups were asked to decorate hundreds of ornaments but that they are unaware of these specific decorations."

Yep that’s about as critical as the MSM could manage to be about the guy.
Explain these too. (BTW there’s more)

Obama is a secret Muslim: This one began right after he took the stage at the 2004 Democratic convention, with chain emails alleging his “true” religious affiliation. The rumor soon found its way onto the popular conservative online forum Free Republic, and took on a whole new life in the years to come. Related: Obama secretly speaks Arabic, attended a madrassa as a kid in Indonesia, referred to “my Muslim faith” in an interview, and was sworn in on a Koran. Steve BrodnerSteve Brodner

Obama is bringing 100 million Muslims to America: Avi Lipkin and his PR outfit Special Guests claimed to have evidence of a scheme to bring roughly 100 million Muslims from the Middle East into the United States, converting the country into an Islamic nation by the end of Obama’s second term and making it easier to obliterate Israel.

Obama once aided the mujahideen: Harlem pastor and professional race-baiter James David Manning contended that in his younger days, Obama went undercover as a CIA agent to facilitate the transfer of cash and weapons to the Afghan mujahideen in the ’80s, thereby aiding what would become the Taliban.

Obama is in the pocket of the Muslim Brotherhood: Billy Graham’s son Franklin wants you to know that Obama is allowing the Muslim Brotherhood to take over the federal government.

Obama redecorated the Oval Office in Middle Eastern style: Driven by his fierce sense of anti-American interior design, Obama got rid of the red, white, and blue decoration scheme in his White House office.

Obama married a Pakistani guy: World Net Daily correspondent and conspiracymonger extraordinaire Jerome Corsi posted a video in which he claimed to have “strong” evidence that Obama was once married to his college roommate from Pakistan. The smoking gun: Photos of the chums in which the future president is “sitting about on the [Pakistani roommate’s] lap.” Related: For years Obama wore a gold ring on his left hand. Was it his gay-wedding ring?

Obama’s ring has a Koranic verse on it: The very same ring, which Obama now wears as his (straight) wedding band, is allegedly emblazoned with a key phrase in the Islamic declaration of faith: “There is no god except Allah.” (It’s not.)

Obama was funded by a Saudi prince: Another fairy tale courtesy of Corsi: In late-’70s Chicago, Obama secured political and academic funding from a variety of sketchy Arab sponsors, including a Saudi prince. Which may explain why President Obama bowed to the Saudi king when they met in 2009.

Not that it matters, but voted for him in round one. He "spoke" presidential which is what got me to vote for him. He didn't back it up though. At all really. He really had no business being POTUS in hindsight. He had zero executive experience in any realm. I bought a bill of goods that I thought was the real deal. He may go down as one of the worst Presidents in modern history.

I think if any of us make it to 2060 (for me 80 years old) we'll look back and look at Obama as an utter joke of a leader. All talk and never backing up a thing.

Nearly 500 Accomplishments by President Obama, With Citations

THE OBAMA LEGACY

Here are a Few Examples to Start You Off:

President Obama was voted most admired man of the year for 2016. It was, of course, the ninth time in a row he’d been elected that. http://ti.me/2jDauHt

Despite the characterizations of some, Obama’s success rate in winning congressional votes on issues was an unprecedented 96.7% for his first year in office. Though he is often cited as superior to Obama, President Lyndon Johnson’s success rate in 1965 was only 93%. http://n.pr/i3d7cY

Despite the odds, Barack Obama was elected the first black president and then, was reelected by a wide margin.

President Obama acted with grace and dignity for eight solid years and restored a proper level of dignity to the office of the president, which we now appreciate more than ever.

Also, President Obama left office with an approval rating above 60%, more than double Bush’s last approval rating at the end and 20 points higher than his “replacement” had going into the office. http://cnn.it/2tObjz

There are also these:

President Obama loosened the rules to allow the 14 states that have legalized marijuana to some extent to regulate themselves without federal interference. http://huff.to/eQfa7j (Compare that with the Lord Donny regime, which has already announced plans to “crack down” on these states and banish the “evil weed” from all of society. As if we don’t have more important things to worry about.)

President Obama expanded national service offerings and increasing funding for groups, including tripling the size of Americorps. http://bit.ly/idgQH5

After years of neglect by the Bushies and Republicans in general, President Obama and Democrats provided $4.3 billion in additional assistance to 9/11 first responders. http://bit.ly/o7cWYS

To help those communities devastated by Hurricane Sandy, President Obama issued an executive order setting up the Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force, and asked Congress to approve $60 billion in supplemental assistance to aid in storm recovery. http://1.usa.gov/134L7hl (Note: It took Republicans in Congress a month to approve $9.7 billion in Sandy aid, with 67 Republicans voting against even that. You can find the list of 67 here: http://bit.ly/2sf0aWd Pay close attention to how many of these Representatives come from states who have asked for assistance many times in the past.)

President Obama expanded trade agreements like NAFTA to include stricter labor and environmental agreements. http://bit.ly/etznpY

President Obama and Democrats established funding for the design of a new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History. He also worked to protected the funding during budget negotiations with Republicnas, who think the only people we should remember are those named “Ronald Reagan.” http://on.fb.me/fD0EVO http://bit.ly/ff5Luv

President Obama and Democrats oversaw increased funding for the National Endowment for the Arts. http://bit.ly/dFb8qF (Now, Lord Donny and the GOP are promising to kill funding for the NEA. Not because it saves you money, but because it provides for a slightly larger tax cut for themselves.)

President Obama expanded the authority of Customs to improve enforcement of trade and customs laws and to better coordinate said enforcement among various agencies. http://bit.ly/1S5pun7

There are so many accomplishments to list, they had to be separated into categories.
Here’s the first one. This is probably the most important thing anyone has done in many decades…

President Obama and Democrats Prevented a Depression and Created Substantial Growth

Though many, especially on the far right and the far left, claim disappointment in the “slow growth” of the economy, the actual record is much different. People seem to forget the dire state of the economy when President Obama took office in 2009. They shouldn’t. He received no help from Republicans at all, so it is virtually the case that he and the Democrats did everything themselves. Here are some things he did:

Less than a month after taking the oath of office, President Obama led the way to Democrats passing the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, also known as “the stimulus package.” http://bit.ly/2rfLadu

President Obama also launched recovery.gov, a website that allows taxpayers to track spending from the Act. http://bit.ly/2aw6HGt

Though there are claims that the stimulus package created few or no jobs, that is a lie. http://bit.ly/2rYThfH (Republicans who refused to support anything Obama and the Democrats did created zero jobs, truthfully.)

Through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, saved at least 300,000 education jobs, such as teachers, principals, librarians, and counselors that would have otherwise been lost. http://bit.ly/2rYOpaJ

Thanks to quick action by President Obama and Democrats, by the end of his first year, the economy created and sustained 2.1 million jobs and the ARRA stimulated the economy by 3.5%. http://reut.rs/i46CEE

Against Republican opposition, President Obama took the steps necessary to rescue an American auto industry that was running on fumes. http://bit.ly/2rYJhmL

In doing so, President Obama saved at least 1 million jobs and possibly the entire US auto industry. http://bit.ly/ibhpxr http://bit.ly/gj7mt5

President Obama and the Democrats’ decision to invest in General Motors returned the company to its place as the premiere car company in the world. http://lat.ms/zIJuQx

In fact, GM was in such good shape after what Obama and Democrats did that, in 2016, they returned a share of their profits to employees, doling out checks for as much as $11,000. That is in addition to buying back the stock the government purchased in the bailout. http://detne.ws/1mk7Jry

President Obama doubled the funding for the Manufacturing Extension Partnership, which does research on how to improve manufacturing efficiency. http://bit.ly/eYD4nf

President Obama and Democrats in Congress took the time to increase infrastructure spending after years of neglect by Republicans, who see all spending as waste and none as investment. http://bit.ly/f77aOw

President Obama worked with Democrats in Congress to provide funding to states and the Department of Homeland Security to save thousands of police and firefighter jobs from being cut during the recession. http://bit.ly/g0IKWR

President Obama guided the massive TARP program in a way that recovered more than was actually spent, by forcing banks to pay back more of the money. http://bit.ly/2alXjlV

President Obama also established the Making Home Affordable home refinancing plan, later branded Home Affordable Refinancing Program (HARP), which is still going strong. http://1.usa.gov/goy6zl

Democrats passed and President Obama signed the Helping Families Save Their Homes Act, which helped millions of Americans avoid preventable foreclosures and provided $2.2 billion to combat homelessness and to stabilize the housing market. http://bit.ly/2aiFCbi

President Obama implemented new rules making it easier for home buyers to get a loan to buy a condominium. http://bit.ly/2c4VPDl

President Obama signed an Executive Order creating jobs immediately by reducing the time needed for review and permitting of infrastructure projects. http://1.usa.gov/GHxaYt

President Obama and Democrats in Congress passed the Worker, Homeownership, and Business Assistance Act of 2009, which provided first-time homebuyers with large tax credits, which helped to further stimulate the U.S. housing market and aid the recovery. http://bit.ly/dZgXXw

President Obama was able to created an institute, called “Promise Zones,” which will invest in more manufacturing jobs in the technology fields of the future. http://nyti.ms/1egyXrV

President Obama created an atmosphere that encouraged China’s largest manufacturer, Foxconn, to build a large plant in Pennsylvania http://cnnmon.ie/1k7LT4S

President Obama worked with Apple Computer to get them to build more product here. As a result, the company is building two large plants to manufacture products in the U.S.; one in Texas http://zd.net/1nkpt2O and one in Arizona. http://bit.ly/1mXY5Vg

President Obama ordered all federal contractors to pay a minimum wage of $10.10 per hour for work done on all federal contracts. http://wapo.st/1iaU5kd Since this decision, many large employers, including Disney and Walmart, have increased their minimum wage for workers in stores and other facilities. http://bit.ly/2c3iwF5

President Obama showed leadership in getting the G-20 to commit to a $1.1 trillion deal to combat the global financial crisis. http://nyti.ms/gHlgp5

President Obama ordered the completion of the International Trade Data System, a digital trade record book, by 2016. This move will streamline and simplify the process through which small- and medium-sized businesses set up the export of US goods. http://bit.ly/1nwSRF4 http://bit.ly/2rfQPk2

Signed bill to expand opportunities and to promote greater Native American tourism. http://bit.ly/2dTIQmo

Though he had to shame Republicans in Congress into going along, he got a $305 billion highways bill passed. This bill has the added benefit of created hundreds of thousands of new jobs and creating incentives for green cars. http://bit.ly/1NsL2Zq

In 2010 alone, more jobs were created under President Obama than were created during all eight years of the Bush Administration. http://bit.ly/hrrnjY

APOCALYPSEFUCKisShostakovitch says
HE LIVED WITH BANKER COCK DOWN HIS THROAT


https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/secrets-and-lies-of-the-bailout-113270/

So what did bailout officials do? They put together a proposal full of even bigger deceptions to get it past Congress a second time. That process began almost exactly four years ago – on January 12th and 15th, 2009 – when Larry Summers, the senior economic adviser to President-elect Barack Obama, sent a pair of letters to Congress. The pudgy, stubby­fingered former World Bank economist, who had been forced out as Harvard president for suggesting that women lack a natural aptitude for math and science, begged legislators to reject Vitter’s bill and leave TARP alone.

In the letters, Summers laid out a five-point plan in which the bailout was pitched as a kind of giant populist program to help ordinary Americans. Obama, Summers vowed, would use the money to stimulate bank lending to put people back to work. He even went so far as to say that banks would be denied funding unless they agreed to “increase lending above baseline levels.” He promised that “tough and transparent conditions” would be imposed on bailout recipients, who would not be allowed to use bailout funds toward “enriching shareholders or executives.” As in the original TARP bill, he pledged that bailout money would be used to aid homeowners in foreclosure. And lastly, he promised that the bailouts would be temporary – with a “plan for exit of government intervention” implemented “as quickly as possible.”

But in the end, almost nothing Summers promised actually materialized. A small slice of TARP was earmarked for foreclosure relief, but the resultant aid programs for homeowners turned out to be riddled with problems, for the perfectly logical reason that none of the bailout’s architects gave a shit about them. They were drawn up practically overnight and rushed out the door for purely political reasons – to trick Congress into handing over tons of instant cash for Wall Street, with no strings attached. “Without those assurances, the level of opposition would have remained the same,” says Rep. Raúl Grijalva, a leading progressive who voted against TARP. The promise of housing aid, in particular, turned out to be a “paper tiger.”

So yeah, all praise OBAMA! because he took bankster's cock down his throat more graciously than Bush did and trump does now...

And more, about Obama HAMP achievements:

HAMP, the signature program to aid poor homeowners, was announced by President Obama on February 18th, 2009. The move inspired CNBC commentator Rick Santelli to go berserk the next day – the infamous viral rant that essentially birthed the Tea Party. Reacting to the news that Obama was planning to use bailout funds to help poor and (presumably) minority homeowners facing foreclosure, Santelli fumed that the president wanted to “subsidize the losers’ mortgages” when he should “reward people that could carry the water, instead of drink the water.” The tirade against “water drinkers” led to the sort of spontaneous nationwide protests one might have expected months before, when we essentially gave a taxpayer-funded blank check to Gamblers Anonymous addicts, the millionaire and billionaire class.

In fact, the amount of money that eventually got spent on homeowner aid now stands as a kind of grotesque joke compared to the Himalayan mountain range of cash that got moved onto the balance sheets of the big banks more or less instantly in the first months of the bailouts. At the start, $50 billion of TARP funds were earmarked for HAMP. In 2010, the size of the program was cut to $30 billion. As of November of last year, a mere $4 billion total has been spent for loan modifications and other homeowner aid.

In short, the bailout program designed to help those lazy, job-averse, “water-drinking” minority homeowners – the one that gave birth to the Tea Party – turns out to have comprised about one percent of total TARP spending. “It’s amazing,” says Paul Kiel, who monitors bailout spending for ProPublica. “It’s probably one of the biggest failures of the Obama administration.”

The bailouts were passed during the Bush era, and then Obama finialized terms which were far more favorable for America than were ever discussed under Bush.

Regulation and terms are key in the service of democracy when dealing with American centers of wealth and power.

I'm not saying the bailout was perfect. Really the whole thing is putting the failure of our style of capitalism on the backs of working families and including the unborn for decades into the future. The concept is traitorous and criminal.

In the end it is the people's fault for not rising up against the notion in the first place.

Jazz,

this is not fully true. Please read the Rolling Stone article.

Geithner announced on March 23, 2009 a Public-Private Investment Program (P-PIP) to buy toxic assets from banks' balance sheets. This qualifies as fellating banksters, and was done with Obama in power.

It would have been enough if the BANKSTERS! would have been allowed to go broke, followed by their mass jumping out of windows. But they were bailed out - and this caused the last bailout, which will cause another one, and so on.

Yeah that’s why I say the whole concept is traitorous and criminal.

Worse yet, they have other tricks up their sleeve to make capitalist gamblers whole again, they have structured financial law so that your money can be devaluated and thereby causing a bail in for these gamblers. They did it in Greece and got away with it. All the people did was bitch.

More than twice now since the financial sector has been deregulated we have seen a systemic failure and we have all been made to make the crooks whole again so that they can continue and yet they still want to call it capitalism.

So get used to it, this will continue until the people either rise up and force regulations once again onto our system or alternately the holders of the debt will declare our government insolvent and put America into receivership, which means corporate rule. I personally believe that is the direction that our oligarchy has set us on.

Imagine the bankers in direct control of our military and all of the enforcement and the Supreme Court set up to enact all the things that make their profits optimal alone.

In reality there’s probably no one who dare call America’s debts due. So what we definitely will get is guaranteed increase in inflation. This is great news for all property owners.

I don't think they are intelligent enough for any calculation beyond looting/bailouts. If they were, their businesses would not fail and need bailouts. More likely outcome is some type of stagflation and continued looting with the current system in place, which anyhow allows the top 0.001% do whatever the hell they want.

Nearly 500 Accomplishments by President Obama, With Citations


He bombed 7 nations over 8 years, he legalized gay marriage, and he made it illegal not to buy health insurance whether you could afford it or not and he created a national discussion on transgendered bathrooms.

That's his actual legacy.

As the first black president in the United States, he spent a lot of time on trivialities and continued all the wars that George W. Bush lied us into. He was an absolute disaster for the nation, and much more of an embarrassment than Trump could ever be. That people fawn over him is absolutely disgusting. He was George W. Bush in blackface wrapped in a gay pride flag.

Hope and Change - wars didn't change. That's what he was specifically hired to stop, and he didn't. He was a complete failure, and the reason the establishment fucks didn't retain power is because he was so precisely awful.

You really think something like:

"President Obama expanded trade agreements like NAFTA to include stricter labor and environmental agreements. http://bit.ly/etznpY"

Is some remarkable accomplishment that I'm supposed to care about? The reason YOU are pointing to articles written for a "news" paper, is because YOU don't know what Obama did. They are all weak, pathetic examples. How, exactly did Obama change NAFTA to include stricter labor and environmental agreements?

Trump destroyed the credibility of the media and demonstrated they are complete propaganda. He's also discredited the leadership of the intelligence agencies, and has exposed that the DOJ is completely corrupt. He's also demonstrated that both party leadership is pro war, and won't end any of them. He hasn't started a new war either.

That's an actual accomplishment.

I don't have to find some propagandists' puff piece to rattler off what Trump has done, and what Obama did. He was just as awful as George W. Bush, and Bush was awful.

Obama was a Democratic clone of G W Bush, who started a major war against Iraq on a flimsy pretext that the media went along with, while everyone knew that it was Saudi Arabia who attacked us. Almost all of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudis. We should expropriate all Saudi assets.

Wasn't handpicked by G W. McCain's economic advisor stated publicly that the economic downturn was all psychological. With an economic advisor like that, and coming from the same political party that had just run the economy off a cliff, McCain didn't stand a chance.
