Obama takes credit for Trump's magic wand

In June 2016, Obama admitted at a town hall meeting that he does not know how the economy works. Oh, he thought he was being clever when he tried to taunt Donald John Trump. Obama did so in response to a question about rescuing manufacturing jobs.

Obama said, "When somebody says, like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for, that he’s going to bring all these jobs back, well how exactly are you going to do that? What are you going to do? There’s — there’s no answer to it.

"He just says, 'Well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.' Well, what, how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer."

Obama thinks economics is magic.

President Trump answered him two years later. The economy has taken off -- growing at double that paltry 1.9% growth rate that Obama left him in the last quarter of 2016.

By the way, that was higher than the 1.5% annual average in Obama's presidency, the lowest since Hoover.

Under President Trump, 396,000 manufacturing jobs have returned so far.

So now that President Trump finally has revived an economy that lumbered along under our first socialist president, guess who is taking credit for the return of manufacturing jobs?

Obama.

He told Democrats in Las Vegas, "When you hear all this talk about economic miracles right now, remember who started it."

We do.

His name is President Donald John Trump.

Some reporter should walk up to Obama and say, you didn't build that.

He was the Cinderella of presidents. President Trump was the clock striking at midnight.

Obama's legacy is evaporating.

Obamacare is a shell of itself. The mandate is gone.

The Islamic State, too, is a shell of itself.

Even the Deep State of Obama's embedded henchmen is shrinking.

He wasted eight years.

His legacy now is that he led to President Trump. Small wonder Obama wants to take credit for the accomplishments of President Trump.

  2. "Those jobs aren't coming back."
    The jobs came back.
    "See? I told you I'd bring those jobs back!"

  3. The two worst presidents of my lifetime, Jimmah Carter and Obungler led to the two best presidents of my lifetime, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump.

    1. Unfortunately every time this happens and the Republicans are called upon by voters to fix the mess the Democrats got us into, the country then says things are going so swimmingly well we can allow the Democrats back into power. Which then leads to meet another Democrat mess that the Republicans have to fix. I hope we are not headed into another cycle like that in the upcoming election, because at this juncture we cannot afford two years of Democrat control of Congress. Trump may have a pen to veto bills a Democrat Congress passes, but my sanity cannot sustain two years of vicious political warfare in DC.

  4. The Dems' economic message is this:
    The economy really isn't all that great under Trump. And Obama deserves all the credit and glory.
    How drunk of the Demo Kool Aid do you have to be not to sense the internal contradiction?

  5. When Obama was president, he literally told audiences that his anemic economy was the "new normal," and that economic growth we knew before was never going to come back.

    He's got some chutzpah taking credit now.

  6. Wouldn't sweat it....

    There were 2 photos from yesterday showing President Trump talking to 20k-plus in Houston, and Obama talking to under 200 people in what looked like a half-filled school auditorium.

  7. FYI: Obama's rally was attended by 2000 people. Compare that to the 100,000 people who requested tickets to Trump's Houston rally.

    Thank God for the British press, which actually posts the Obama crowd levels.

  9. For 8 years Obama blamed everything on George Bush. Now he wants to steal all the credit for what Trump is doing. Meanwhile, the Democrats seem to be running on a platform of "Make Obama President Again."
