Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, September 16, 2017

First, open your mouth and say, "Barack Obama is a better president than Donald Trump". It make take some practice, breathing and vocalizing the words, but years of speaking should make you very capable by now of repeating these words. Ah, so simple ...





Admin's note: Participants in this discussion must follow the site's moderation policy. Profanity will be filtered. Abusive conduct is not allowed.

Obama wasn't investigated by a special council concerning committing acts of treason.

He didn't insult large segments of American and foreign nations within months of taking office, with racist and sometimes bizarre behaviors.

Obama didn't have weird fascinations with crowd sizes.

He didn't have fears of biased media outlets.

Obama didn't try to let 20 million people lose their healthcare without any plan to help them cope with such a drastic cut.

He didn't insult senators and representatives, especially war heroes likely dying of cancer.

Obama didn't create an atmosphere of hate, and racism to be validated by the lowest forms of human life, and call them "good people".

All of this in less than a year.

No doubt there will be many of these columns to come over the next few years.

Having a near-illiterate, full time grifter with a short attention span, no historical appreciation, and a myriad of cripplingly and destructively serious mental health issues in the WH makes me miss having a former community organizer in the WH.

Whether you liked Obama or not, 2 things were true. He was very very smart. He was a thoughtful, kind and moral person.

But the reason i liked him was because he was an idealist. Leaders have to be idealists. If not, then the group you are trying to lead flounders.

That is exactly what we have now, Flounder J. (Juvenile) Trump.

Apparently the "we" in the headline referred to Obama's bootlickers in the MSM.

Well, it's a good guess it didn't refer to Trump bootlickers such as yourself.

When you miss someone by comparing them to someone else, it means the individual you miss didn't do much ....

What "Trumps" all your longing is Trump is working with both sides, Obama went it alone.... we live in a Republic, Obama thought it was a dictatorship.

House Democrats can't figure out why Obama won't talk to them

Once again, we're reminded that President Obama is aloof and hasn't made friends in Congress, even with his fellow Democrats, thanks to a new story from The New York Times.

Really sounds Presidential ....

Obama was a douchebag who loved spying on average Americans, drone striking innocent goat farmers, and expanding executive power, but he wasn't particularly more prone to dictatorship than his predecessor.

It is typical progressive mentality, anyone who doesn't think like them just doesn't count or exist.

"He was very very smart", I need some back up for that. Please help. What do you believe is very very smart?

He didn't personally get involved with inimical foreign powers?

Since you have to be smart to know if someone else is smart ... good luck with that.

He demonstrated it at the very beginning of his first term when he attended the Republican Retreat and outsmarted everyone of them on virtually every topic they brought up.

I miss all the tours of foreign rich and famous by the First Lady and entourage.

It means he was a stooge for the 1% liberals hate so much.

Now he works for a bank in a no show job so he can stay politically active.

Never again will we have a president that can read from a teleprompter so eloquently and with aplomb. We'll miss that.

I don't miss Obama at all. Trump has been less authoritarian (so far). Obama was certainly better than Trump in many ways, but not so much so that i miss him.

"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man."
