Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, January 04, 2019

Obama expanded the massive federal taxpayer bailout of the financial institutions that had collapsed the economy, without lifting a finger for ordinary working people. Then Obama gave us a Republican health care plan. Obama never honored his campaign pledge to re-legalize union organizing by passing the Employee free Choice Act. In 2011 Obama offered the Republicans bigger cuts in Social Security and Medicare than they asked for in his "Grand Bargain" while everyone cried debt-ceiling crisis. Then Obama deployed federal and local police to infiltrate and crush the populist, anti-One Percent OWS. Obama dedicated his second term to passing TPP. The Democrat Wall Street agenda made Donald Trump possible.

People like Hbrat voted for him, that's how.

Oh, and far lefties felt like poor people should suffer without healthcare if their version couldn't pass the Senate... which is typical of Purity Ponies who are not themselves affected.

Corky has spent much time here of late screaming about how terrible the left is, remember according to Cork you should only vote for conservative Dems who are bought and paid for by the corporations.

As, for Obama no he really was not a great President but the bankers loved him

- how terrible the left is

The far left, not the left. You know, people who say things like "Obama's Republican healthcare" and "bankers loved Obama".

You know, because being a Puridopian is preferable to poor people having at least some health care and not losing their savings.

Obama's health care which is also Romney care, is better than its precursor. The pleasant myth of Obama, a person impossible to dislike unless you hate all black people, is very different than the legislative record. This is doubly true of Bill Clinton, of whom Howard Zinn devoted 30 pages in his 700 page history of the USA, But Obama is much better than Reagan, Bushes or Trump. No doubt about that. Still, the relentless war on workers must be reversed. The first step in such a process requires recognizing who owns our politicians. The pay to play system on TV and radio for profit must end or all is lost.

#13 | Posted by HeliumRat I agree, it was one of those hold your nose elections. We picked the one that stank less. That was not an endorsement and don't blame me, I voted for Johnson.

We got Trump because the Dems insisted on nominating the worst Candidate you could possibly imagine. If the process wasn't so corrupt you had other more viable candidates. Martin O'malley, Jim Webb, Lincoln Chafee ,Bernie. Hopefully in 2020 you guys wise up and don't pick another polarizing candidate.

Obama had a filibuster proof majority for 74 days. Pretend all you want but he didn't refuse to pass bills like the union organizing bill, Repubuclicans did. When you refuse to acknowledge the actual truth you defeat yourself. He accomplished great things in those 74 days; Obamacare and the Consumer Protection Agency which Republicans have been determined to destroy every sine. Know who your enemies are, Obama isn't one of them.

"

We got Trump for two reasons. 1. Republicans cheated and used Crosscheck to suppress minority voters. 2. Jill Stein gained enough votes in swing states to deprive Hillary of victory there, spoilers usually harm the candidate with views closest to the spoiler's.

When you smell like sulfur you can't smell sulfur. I can.

To keep it short I blamed it all on Obama, who was only one black man among hundreds of Democrats. The Democrats are guilty of not standing up against the GOP royal scam called "Supply Side Economics and the Laffer Curve". Instead of continuing with the highly successful "New Deal", they have played along with the GOP, because Wall Street. Obama was not in the best position to handle this problem, because he needed to be mainstream to win.
