8 years of suffering under Barack Obama

I came across this quite by accident … I do not know this blogger, have never read any of his posts before, but I felt this was well worth sharing … w reminder of a better time, a better president.

The sentence I hear most from well-meaning, conservative friends since President Trump’s election is this: “We suffered 8 years under Barack Obama.”

Fair enough. Let’s take a look.

The day Obama took office, the Dow closed at 7,949 points. Eight years later, the Dow had almost tripled, closing at 21,414.

General Motors and Chrysler were on the brink of bankruptcy, with Ford not far behind, and their failure, along with their supply chains, would have meant the loss of millions of jobs. Obama pushed through a controversial, $8o billion bailout to save the car industry. The U.S. car industry survived, started making money again, and the entire $80 billion was paid back, with interest.

While we remain vulnerable to lone-wolf attacks, no foreign terrorist organization has successfully executed a mass attack here since 9/11.

Obama ordered the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden.

  1. Dear Jill,

    These are the same ones who still believe that President Obama was born in Kenya and that he is really a Muslim. I have friends like this and when they start down this path, I have to say that I don’t agree and that I will not follow her/ him down this path.

    These are the closet racists. If you were to say they are being racist, they would deny this WITH THEIR LAST BREATH.. And they would have voted for DDT.
    Hugs, Gronda
